A little bird told me....

This stamp is one of my latest buys from Woodware Stamps.  As usual it stamps so crisply giving such good definition.  I used paper piecing as well as colouring with Promarkers

Wedding card and box

I made this card for my niece when she got married last month.  It was a beautiful day and to see the love in their eyes when they looked at each other was one of the most amazing things of the day.

V for Violet

This card is a joint collaboration between myself and Elizabeth.  Elizabeth did the cross-stitch and I did the rest and it was for Elizabeth's mother-in-law

The cross-stitch design was quite large which needed an 8 x 8 card to show it off properly which I didn't have so put it together using two 12 x 12s.  I mounted the design onto white card so that the solid colour paper didn't show through.  I then cut a frame which I covered with the patterned paper and mounted it onto the card using 3d foam pads.  the papers are from a pack of Brenda Pinnick papers which I've had for a very long time from the days when I used to buy from QVC.  the colours in the papers are a really good match to the colours of threads used
