Lavender Liquid Pearls

I recently bought a bottle of lavender lace liquid pearls - I have had a bottle of Ruby Red for years, but have only ever used it for the holly berries on Christmas cards.

I dug out a few cards that I had made previously and had great fun adding a few dots of pearls here and there - I hope you think that they have improved the cards as little!

I had some great crafty gifts including swirl dies, a border punch and some more Promarkers to add to my collection, so I feel a crafting session coming on soon. 

I'm joining in with the new Creative Friday Blog link Party  - why don't you came and have a look what others have been up to? Dawn

Yuletide Greetings Winter Wishes Cards for Pagans

I know several people who are either pagans or non-Christians, so I always try to make a few cards for them at this time of year. 
I've gone for 'Winter Wishes' as the sentiment. The top card has an image from Joanna Sheens 'Dancing with Shadows' CD.
I now have a blog where I sell cards suitable for Pagans to send or receive over Christmas time at

I would like to wish you all a Happy, peaceful and contented Christmas and if Santa visits you, that he brings lots of crafty presents!

Celebrations Collection

Occasionally I treat myself to Creative stamping Magazine - this time I was drawn by the Celebration Collection of freebie stamps which include a Rocking Horse and Bottle of Champagne and the sentiment 'Time to drink champagne and dance on the table'.

As usual, I couldn't wait to try them out and made these three cards. I hope 2014 will being us all lots of good reasons to celebrate!

Little Wooden Penguins - What a Bargain!

I found a pack of these very cute little wooden skiiing penguins in the Ipswich branch of the Range last week reduced to only 50p. There are 16 in the pack with 4 different types - and I couldn't wait to use them!

I coloured them with Promarkers and then teamed them up with bits

and pieces from my stash to make a whole set of blue and green based Christmas ATC's.
