Hello and Happy Monday,
Well here is my first photo of a card that I originally did for my Mum-in-law for Mothers day but a friend came to visit and wanted it for her Mum!! So I had to Start all over again!
The card was made using my trusty Spellbinder Dies and the Couture Creations Tied Together embossing folder, which lines up really easily for increasing the size of the embossed area.  The die I used was the Samantha Walker
Antique Frames and Accents Spellbinder die, very versatile. I also used the Foliage die and Spiral Blossom 2.
I used the Cosmic Shimmer Teal Sky Pearl PVA glue to add a bit of interest to the background.
Sorry that the picture isn't that great but this is a learning curve for us all.
Please stop by for another picture and update tomorrow.
Huge Crafty Hugs to all,
Sandra xx

Hello Again,
I have just worked out how to upload photos from my camera to the laptop so I am now
going to try posting some of my recent cardmaking projects on my blog!, so watch this space!!
Last weekend I went to the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking show at Alexandra Palace, it was lovely to meet
Sue Wilson as I have been following her 'particraft '  blog for sometime now, such an inspirational lady.
It was a very accessible show in beautiful surroundings.
I recently won a blog candy competition from the lovely Christine Emberson, another amazingly inspirational
lady, Christine included the card I created for her today on her fabulous 'Hope & Chances' blog, you will also see pictures of gorgeous little Bella, Christine's adorable little dog featured on there.
I would like to thank all of the lovely comments left by all of the lovely blog friends on Christine's blog.
Please come back and see my attempt at uploading some of my projects!
Thanks so much for stopping by,
Crafty Hugs
