Shine a Light

Argh! Does anyone else have the problem of pesky calls from Microsoft? I've just had another one of those phone calls from Microsoft telling me that someone is trying to hack into my computer so i gave him a right mouthful. I've had enough of them ringing everyday, what happens is they tell me there's a problem and then they expect me to pay loads of money to protect me but i already have protection! So i told him to stop ringing me as i'm sick and tired of it! Phew! That's me rant over!

Here's a Christmas card i made using the adorable 'Shine a Light' from LOTV and i didn't have the colour to match the ribbon and cardstock so i mixed green and blue.

Birthday Greetings!

Here's a stamp i have not used for a long while and she is one of my favourites!
She's a Hanglar Stanglar stamp and i've stamped her with Archival ink Sepia and coloured her with my favourite Copic markers. I die cut the image using my Spellbinders Fancy Oval die. The base card is KraftStax from Papermania and i punched the folded edges with my MS art deco punch and matted my CS with some Prima Almanac script DP and also used it to die cut some Magnolia flowers dies, a small Marianne D's flower die and a Memory Box heart die. I added a TH on the edge butterfly diecut and some Melissa Francis ric rac ribbon. I cut a Magnolia Tilda ticket die and stamped a birthday greeting and embossed with gold.
Finished it all off with lots of Fran-tage, some Melissa Francis pearls and my own created stand.

My Handmade Magnolia Stamps Holder

Hi all! Urgh! It's another dull and dreary day but i finally got my Magnolia stamps holder finished, Yay!
I started off with some old curtain lining for the hanger and also the pockets. I stitched the pockets on to the hanger but before i did that i stamped a few of my Magnolia stamps onto them and coloured them in with my Copics and Promarkers. I then glued some gorgeous velvet ricrac ribbon onto some of the pockets. The flowers i pinned on and i used me glue gun to stick the Marianne Butterfly diecut (and gems) to the pocket, i also pinned a heart charm on. I finished it all off with a recycled pole and some cord and tied 2 lace bows.
BTW everything on my project is handstitched!
