Hi everyone Have new You tube video's for you today....
and a craft challenge card.

Hi today I have two You tube video's 
gone live these are made using 
the new Stained Glass window dies from
If you haven't seen these dies I think your
really going to love them.
They have amazing detail to them and you can make
 so truly stunning cards with them.
Here is the links to my video's and sneak peek of the cards I made.

Also have a new challenge card. This design is a little simple, 
with just a Penny Black image 
but thought went well with the brown and cream tones.
Mixed a Hunkydory message and cute bird stamp.

Would love to enter this into following challenge:

Time has gone by so quick, been busy with magazine 
commissions a lot of which will be out in the new year,

As well as card order I found a bit of spare time to give my scan n cut
A good try and this is what I have made....

I used a cutting file from scrap chick and wow it's wonderful went for
 a bit of a vintage feel with the papers I used and mixed in few pearls and snowflakes!!
I have also had a go at a advent calendar this again was made with my Brother machine.
The files for this came from the Brother Canvas program, 
I used some lovely fabrics 
for the backing and each bell is made from card with a mini pocket. 
Now onto my Challenge card....

Sending smiles across the miles commission work.
Afternoon everyone hope your well, and had a nice weekend? 
The weather was lovely here and had the great pleasure of seeing another 
one of my commissioned cards go live on the Cardmaking and Papercraft website blog. 
I was commissioned to make a card that could be sent to a love one or friend who lives overseas.
At first I thought what can I use for this then in my stash I found this super topper and card set from Hunkydory range. I went for pink and blue tones, made mini bunting to write my message 'love' in,
and used glitter glue on the waves to make them sparkle.
All the product list and instructions can be found on the Cardmaking and papercraft blog. Click on link above. 

After I had make my easel card I came across this Penny black stamp and thought this could make a 
more masculine themed card that would be good to send to a male relative or male friend.
I used first edition papers, some peel of letter and die cut shapes.

I would love to enter this card into following challenges:
The Ribbon girl blog May colour challenge: Aqua- closes 23rd May
Creative Fingers blog challenge- anything goes- closes 21st May
Penny black and more challenge blog- dies and punches- closes 1st June
