Just a little Thanks xxx

Afternoon everyone

Hope you are all staying dry today??
Its just horrible here, more like Autumn! Cold and wet and just not nice for our summer! I mean this time last year I'm sure I was sunning myself in the garden with a good book and my crochet! Ack well, fingers crossed Mr Sun puts his hat back on soon!

Now today I wanted to share a wee card I made for a special person to just THANK them for everything they've done for me the past few years!

The lovely papers are Basic Grey Fresh Cut and I just love the gorgeous tones in the pad, tho its almost finished now boohoo!
The wee image is another one from Crafts and me, the pretty Ocean Rose coloured with promakers finished with some glitter and lots of mulberry flowers



I would like to play along with some challenges
I (heart) Promarker - 3 or more Layers
Crafty Ribbons - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Crafty Gals Corner - Anything Goes
Crafts and me - Fantasy


Well thats me for today, time for a quick cuupa before heading out in the wet!
Till next time

more FOLDS xxx



Hi all me again

This time I'm back with the more Accordion Concept cards to share with you all

http://www.crafterscompanion.co.uk/new-c2158/new-products-c848/crafters-companion-diesire-create-a-card-accordion-cards-square-accordion-card-die-p27320 

 I loved the square one as I found it so versatile and can see it fitting in with my everyday crafting!

Here's what I made with it

 


this was used with the Ivy Square Overlay cut from core'dinations
 








and this HUGE 16 page fold card was used with the Holly Square Overlay and I used the Decorative Alphabet Dies to spell out Happy Christmas!

Remember and check out Crafter's Companion for the other styles in the Accordion range and maybe you'll spy some other bits for your basket hehehehe!

take care all and Happy Crafting

Its all about the FOLDS xx

Well hello my lovelies

I do hope you are all well on this damp summer day??
I'm busy busy busy but wanted to stp by and show you some new dies from the lovely Crafter's Companion

http://www.crafterscompanion.co.uk/new-c2158/new-products-c848/crafters-companion-diesire-create-a-card-accordion-card-circle-accordion-die-p27319


You take the fab die and cut as many layers you like and then take the decorative overlay die to finish off the card! At the moment there is 2 overlays for each Accordion shape, but who knows what the future will bring!

Here is some I made using the Circle Accordion die



I used the fab Jingle Bells overlay on this one 







and both of these used the Snowflake overlay 

I know its a bit early for Christmas but also I know some of you crafty folk like to start early!!

I loved making these wee cards(anything different and I'm happy heeee)! You'll find it a great rainy day project for some of you!!
Hope you manage to get your hands on them too! Find them all here!!

well until next time
