When time stood still…

A new style of framed craft from me. I used a Tim Holtz Clock die to depict the time my son was born.

Male cards

Here’s two cards I made for my brother’s birthday (one from me, one from my Mam!).
The first one has an image from Mo Manning, coloured with Promarkers. I used some lovely grosgrain ribbon I got from The Ribbon Shack.

Summer Craft Swaps

I recently took part in two online craft swaps. It’s very exciting sending a parcel off to a stranger and waiting for their reaction. Also equally exciting getting a surprise back in the post. I’ve been very lucky in all the lovely crafts I’ve received in all the swaps I’ve be part of.

For the first one I used a kit for a memories book that I got from Jackie Mooney. I made it into a chipboard album and added one or two extra bits. There’s space for two photos in this album.

I also sent a few cards, but I only took a photo of one of them. I used a digi I had coloured in ages ago and hasn’t made it onto a card. I never seem to have time to colour or craft just for the same if it anymore! ūüė¶
I used a coffee cup collar in this card aswell. Waste not want not!

And here is what I received…..a lovely box full of goodies.

photo 3Homemade Chai tea (recipe to follow) and a gorgeous mug with a crocheted cosy. I’m looking forward to trying these out.

photo 4Two cute egg Cosies for my two boys.

photo 5And two beautiful crocheted doilies.

Wasn’t I lucky?
__________________________

The second swap was an alphabet swap. My letter was ‘C’ so I made a Clock stepper card. I used my new Tim Holtz clock die and some digi stamps from Mami Doodles.
I am entering this card in the ‘Cut it Up’ challenge – What’s¬†bugging¬†you?¬†¬†(see¬†my¬†little¬†ladybug?!)

My swappee had the letter ‘D’, so she made me an altered notelet holder with my name on it, how clever is that? I’ll definitely be making some of these for Christmas gifts.

The next card has a cute image from Mo Manning, also coloured with promarkers. ¬†I had another go at the distress inks here, leaving the circle nestie in place for a white border. ¬†I’m not too sure about the results!

The next card has an image of Saturated Canary, again coloured with Promarkers. ¬†It is inspired by the song ‘Breath of Life’ by Florence and the Machine, from the move ‘ Snow White and the Huntsman’. ¬†You can see the video for the song here. ¬†I am entering this card in the Saturated Canary Challenge, Song Inspiration!

The last card is very different, even though it has a similar colour scheme. ¬†No digi stamp ¬†in this one; I used some die-cut decopage that I’ve had in my stash for ages. ¬†It’s ‘Wellington’ Bear by DoCrafts, and so are the papers. ¬†The ’70’ is cut with my Cricut, using the ‘Quarter Note’ cartridge. ¬†The ribbon is from a box of Butler’s chocolates. ¬†My mother always keeps them for me from any boxes she gets. ¬†ūüôā

I am entering this card into the Cut it Up Challenge – Out with the Old
