New Toy......

Unfortunately not mine but my sister in law was kind enough to let me have a wee play on Monday night. It's a great machine, I love it but I have my Bug so can't justify the splurge!! It was good fun to try out though.

All the dies are hers but I now see I NEED some of the Nellie Snellen scalloped squares, they are lovely.
Oh and maybe the flourish too.....oh and the circles.......the list goes on!!!

Some cards made at Junes hoosey!

Bit later than promised but here are some of the cards I made

Firstly I need to say sorry for the bad picture of my sister in the background!! The card was a white 6x6 covered with green Coredinations. I ran some pink Coredinations throught the bug in the script embossing folder then sanded it a little. The decoupage is part of Paperania Summer Bloom? set that I've had for ages just sitting there! I've added glossy accents to highlight the flowers a bit and some card candy just to finish off.

This one would have been good for Valentines day if it was made a bit earlier!! 6x6 white card with Hero Arts heart stamped onto red Coredinations with black memento.
I've set an eyelet at the bottom of the heart on a jump ring put a wee heart charm which I think came from the Works. I've mounted the heart with 3D foam then just doodled the black around the edges of the card!

Craft Day

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to have a lovely day crafting with two good friends. We had a great day followed by a nice chinese in Glasgow. I made some ATCs and a couple of cards which I will upload later. We had Junes bengal cat Indy "helping"!! He played fetch with Lynnes really sticky tape and was a bit taken with the Cuttlebug!! So funny :)

Bargain in Aldi!

I've been on holiday this last two weeks and when I was up at my Mum and Dads we went shopping a day ( well, lots of days really!!) I picked up this fantastic book in Aldi (Oban branch) It was only £2.99!!!!
There's loads of great ideas in it. Mum picked up the knitting one and has already made something from it!!
