Autumn Hues for Lavinia


This month it is autumn hues for Lavinia Stamps Facebook Challenge - for the card I've used "Star gazing", "Zen Tall Tree", "Star Cluster", and the Dreams word from "Never let go of your dreams" set. - Love these word sets you can make so many other phrases from them.  And for the scrubbing brush the autumn leaves and bees

For the eagle eyed of you, you may see a slight dent in the upper right side of this card :( just after I finished it, I dropped it and Betty (one of my fur babies) picked it up for me :)  I have a bad back and have taught the dogs to do this - but sometimes I just wish they would leave it there :) still I think it adds character and it makes me smile she helped with my crafting!

Please enter the competition, details on the left of this page, the prize is fantastic and the stamps are magical

Fairy Doors

Saw this cute fairy door in a hobby shop today and thought it was perfect for a Lavinia Stamps make over!! I already had a toadstool seat in the garden and thought the two might go together :)

Back on the blog

Hi, I've taken a break from blogging, but I'm back!!

Still a member of the wonderful Lavinia Stamps design team I'll be putting a few examples on here and on my Pinterest account too.

This month it is "no black" so I had a play with some of the fab boarder stamps to creat a patchwork effect.  Loving the Lavinia words too, you can make so many different sentiments from the different sets.

Chinese Tag

It has been ages since I blogged - now Lavinia has gone over to Facebook I haven't really thought about blogging :)

Anyway a Facebook friend has started a tag challenge, so I thought I'd give it a go.

1st card from new room!

This is the first card made in my new crafty room and I am glad it was Nick's Birthday one. I used one of my favourite bird stamps and brushos

Let it snow


This months Lavinia Stamps Challenge (see box on left for details) is Let it Snow.

Chaos reigns supreme in our house, building work has meant that my craft room is still being used for storage, so to make these cards involved waiting until they left and then climbing over the bits to find a space to make - but it was fun so therefore worth it!

These are my two cards as samples, I hope you like them and I look forward to seeing yours on the challenge.

The next cards should be made in my new room so I am hoping for great inspiration and to make even better samples :)  Lots of love to you all and a Merry Christmas to you too xxx
