I think this seasons Hero stamps are really beautiful and I couldnt resist these.Ill be back later with more cards I made with them and their names.

I used my nestie labels and distressed pads.For the flower I painted with Aged Mahogany onto water coloured paper then used micro beads for the centre.

Easel It!!! Again!

This is a Birthday card for my Japanese penfriend Kiyomi. It was another of those stamps when I saw it I immediately had to buy it. I think I have sent her every oriental image available over the years!!I hope she doesnt mind, as really, I think I should be sending things a little more western!! So to make up for it Ive bought her a gorgeous china mug with the Union Jack on it! nothing more western than that and some Cadburys Choccies!!hee hee
The stamp is Wasabi Ketto By Stamping Bella.
The words below say 'Best Wishes' Which are from Aspects of Design Stamp sheet 'Japanese Dragonfly Dreams'
Used Nesties etc
Hope you all have a fab weekend

Beautiful Flowers

Hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weather!!I must admit I do find it harder to find time to craft when it is so nice.
Whiff of Joy are looking for a guest designer for 2 months so I thought I would have a go.

I used a Whiff of Joy stamp and of course my nesties (loving the labels!!more to come) and below are flowers I made from scraps of leftovers.

Bye for now

I used Nesties too-a definate must have and idealogy here and there.

Better go and hide the choccies before they all go.

Circular Easel using NEW Cuttlebug folder.

Hope you are all having a fab weekend.I certainly am! Been crafting since 6am this morning!!
Here is one of the cards Ive made today.I keep being asked how I made the scalloped flower edge on a earlier post. You can see how I did it Here on Inspiational Tips,Techniques and tutorials.

I have used Aspects of Design 'Butterfly Beauties' .I stamped the image with versamark and embossed with Moonglow Midnight Violet obsidian and then watercoloured with distress ink Dusty Concord. The edges I inked with Adirondack Purple Twilight AND just look below.Its one of the NEW Cuttlebug folders(thats one of the reasons I was up so early, I just couldnt wait to play!!)lol It is called Jules Jewels and is going to be a defo favourite of mine!! I got all from The Stampman .

Have a great weekend. Think I need a snooze!!
Thanks for dropping by.xx

Cuttlebug love

I think im safe to post this now.I posted it last Friday for my Cousin and Aunty who lives in Denmark so hopefully they should receive it soon.!!
I am also entering this into the Flutterby Wednesday Challenge

Yes Ive used my cuttlebug and nesties for just about everything except the stamped flower at the bottom right hand corner. Ive also used my mini sewing machine for the circles. Have you ever sewn in a circle??Lol Im getting the hang of it now.
Im still using my papers,though, I did have a night off last night and got all messy again. After watching the very inspiring Jill Tcuk!! (I like that its trendy)!!lol Tuck i mean on Create and Craft,it inspired me again to try and finish my photo frame(though I havent yet!!dont think I ever will either!!!)But it is so much fun and Jill's are just so fab.Go HERE to have a look at them. You've just gotta love Moonglow!!
Anyway must dash.My ironing pile is growing AGAIN!!!
bye for now
