Good morning! Thanks  I've made this card with several different Tonic Studios dies. I used the Classic Roses Dot and Drop Layering dies, with the Thanks Sentiment Strip and the Fanciful Frond die set. The butterflies are from the Mariposa die set and the paper is Paradise Crush from Trimcraft 
I've a busy week ahead with appointments but will keep in touch as much as possible.

Merry and Bright - Trimcraft

 Isn't this Merry and Bright "Craft a Card " die from Trimcraft just beautiful? The die is First Edition FEDIE264X18.
I've used paper from the "All that Glistens" pad with lots of Simply Creative gems and some Dovecraft gold glitter glue.
I do love lots of sparkle!! :)

Christmas Village z Fold card - Trimcraft

As it looks and feels like winter here this morning, here's a Christmas card which I made with Trimcraft's "Christmas Village" collection by Helz Cuppleditch. I love those little light bulb charms!
I've used the Glitter Stickers, mini envelopes, felt shapes as well as the papers and decoupage pad.

With Love at Christmas - Trimcraft


 Another little Christmas card ❄️

This time I've used the Trimcraft Christmas Characters (FEDIE258x18), Snowflakes (FEDIE256x18) and Build a Scene Log Cabin (FEDIE249x18) dies with the Jolly Holidays paper pad.
I used a Dovecraft 5x7 circle aperture as a base with Christmas washi tape along the top and lots of Simply Creative gold gems .




Snow Globe - Trimcraft

 Good morning, this is another quick and easy Christmas card which I've made using the Trimcraft Craft a Card "6x6 Snow Globe" die (FEDIE260x18). Great for a 6x6 card but I think it looks even better in the centre of an 8x8 card. I've added some snowflakes which I made with FEDIE 256x18. The paper is from the Dovecraft "Festive Wonder" pad.
If you're not ready for Christmas cards yet, you can come back to this one for later as it doesn't take long to make, but just make sure you have the die on time

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

 As it's Breast Cancer Awareness month, I'm reminding you again of the importance of mammograms and checks. This time 3 years ago I was having daily radiotherapy after surgery for breast cancer 4 months earlier. It was detected by a routine mammogram and, although it was a massive shock, I'm so thankful that I didn't cancel the appointment.

Also, just to keep you up to date with David's case...he's still having chemotherapy at the moment for bowel cancer and the plan is to start daily radiotherapy in around 2 -3 weeks time, lasting for 5 weeks. If you can have a test for either of these cancers, do it!
Ok, I used the Tonic Studios Legacy Keeper Wallet die set with Kaisercraft "Secret Garden" papers to make this cute little pocket album

Little treat at Belfast Castle

 I've come to the conclusion that a little treat now and then, however small, just fitted in to an otherwise mundane day goes a long way to making you feel better. Well, that's my excuse for doing a detour on the way home from a Dr.'s appointment to stop off at Belfast Castle to have a hot chocolate and a dander around the grounds. Of course, I'd love David to be able to walk around with me as usual but he's not fit to do that now and I took some (actually lots) of photos to show him what I'd seen.
















Sneak peek - new "Forever Free" papers from Trimcraft

 How about a little sneak peek of the beautiful new Forever Free papers coming very soon from Trimcraft? These are lovely to work with. I love paper pads with elements which can be cut from the pages and used individually like this

Merry Christmas - Tonic Studios

The Tonic Studios Cinnamon Wreath die makes a lovely centrepiece for a larger card. I've die cut it from gold card and used the Marry Christmas die in the centre.

Mariposa - new papers from Trimcraft

 Trimcraft have not one, but two new paper pad designs coming! I've loved their papers for many years and always look forward to the new releases. I really love the Mariposa pads (above) and have done some fussy cutting from the floral pages to create this card. Keep an eye out for the Forever Free paper pads too :)

I've coloured the Dovecraft "Bird" stamp with Promarkers and added some Crystal Glitter Glue.
