some new cards and blog candy !

hiya everyone ,here is a couple of cards for some crafty friends over on cardz and scrapz this one was for Aideen and i know she loves altered stuff , tim holtz and distressed look , so i went with this " vintage grundge llok for her

the backing paper is an old map image i had which i tore up and crumpled an inked the edges , i stuck it dowm and inked it agin , added embossing powder and glitter , the name scroll on the side is hand made too similar to the backing paper and the flower is handmade by me too x Aideen said she loved the card
the second card was for Mary

i got my cuttle bug out and embossed the backing card added the die cut flourishes , topper and some bling ( i love me some bling !)and some purple ribbon too . i love doing these cards for the birthday club it is great fun to make cards for other crafters

new year regular blogging ???

hiya everyone , HAPPY NEW YEAR  to you all x i hope 2012 brings you all your hearts desires and health happiness and lots of crafty goodness x   with  my small new business being such a success from september last i have been a very absent blogger x but i am determined to change that and blog more ! so here you are here is a small selection of crafts i have been up to lately x enjoy looking and as always your comments make me happy x

this elvis card above is part of a candle set i made for a customer whose sister is Elvis crazy and by all accounts the candle card set went down a treat x

this engagement set is one of our new designs and since making it it has been very popular with customers who then like to add the couples names and engagement date and some even add a photo x

this baby sympathy candle is a very strange one to be asked to do as it gives me great pleasure to design one for a breaved parent or couple and on the other hand it is very sad to do too, but the comments from the parents when they see their little baby on the candle with a little poem they tell us is very uplifing for them . i have ony included the poem at the back of this candle as i have not asked permission yet to use the fromt wiht the baby image on x

well thats it for today , i hope you like some of our creations and any questions or suggestions just messsage me and i will get back to you

happy crafting
