My own little bit of Spring....

Now my mate SarahK showed me how to make these wonderful little cornflowers, so I adapted the card I made at CUL added a blingy butterfly (Stampendous) and voila! I was quite pleased with this.

Spring is on its Way!!!!!

Just wanted to show you these two beauties that I made in a class that Charry ran at CraftsuLove on Saturday. In the morning we made the flower pot one using various Woodware punches and the gorgusssss Martha Stewart punches. In the afternoon - Charry's passion - Orchids, using the Leonie-Em Orchid punch. Really lovely class.

Happy New Year and may your Mojo be a good long lasting one!

Happy New Year to you all! I really hope that 2010 brings you lots of really good things and that New Year/January Mojo doesn't fall into the black hole of crafting that it tends to at this time of year!

Now, my friend Chrissie can guarantee a party every year for her birthday as it's on New Year's Eve! I know, I know, I've made these roses lots, but I do so love them, so to make Chrissie's birthday as far away from Christmas as possible here's the card I made for her. The green pearlescent paper is from Craftwork Cards paper blox, the foliage is a Leone Em and the ribbon from CUL. I also covered the front of the card with some shiny patterned vellum, but can't remember where I got it from.

I'm having an operation on my knee on Monday so I'm really hoping with a couple of weeks off work I'm going to be able to find a comfortable position to keep my knee elevated and craft at the same time.... any tips would be gratefully accepted!
