A Touch Of Gold

Just a quick simple card.

As always it looks better in RL.
The bauble was a stamp I picked up at Thetford Craft Show.
 I stamped the bauble twice and 3D it and
coloured it with Copics.


It's a shame that pictures don't look anything like they
do in real life.
I don't know if it's the camera, daylight or position
of where you take the photos.

Never mind and I won't moan anymore!!Lol!!

Thanks for stopping by and I do enjoy reading your comments.

Big hugs

A Growing Family

It had to be done!!

They now have 2 little Snow People.
They have left their snowballs sitting on the letter 'L'!!

The strange colour on the letters is actually shadows.


They will all be going to Cherry Lane Garden Centre at Fritton,
near Great Yarmouth, on this Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd.

Their first outing to a Craft Fayre.

If you are in the area, you can pop in and see us.
The restaurant is very good too.

I've made lots of hanging Christmas Decs today.
It's always more enjoyable to make new things.
I will take some pictures tomorrow and will 
post them soon.

I have never had so many in 'Draft' as I have now!

Thanks for taking the time to visit and
just leave me a message so I know you have been.

Big hugs,
Carol

A Christmas Sunset

Thanks for popping in.
I have just made this very quick card and thought
I would post it before going to my bed!

It only took 3 dies to make it. With a bit
of scrap card, coloured with Distress Inks,
for the sunset.

I did add the faux stitching with a white Sakura pen.

I have been doing loads more posts and 
they are in 'Draft' at the moment.

I did say a quick one, so off to bed!

Thanks for your lovely messages on my last post
of my Snow People.
There just might be another one of them to post!!

Big hugs,
Carol

The Snow Neighbours!!

This couple live in the next door igloo,
to the snow people on my last post!!

They have different hats and these were rather 
more difficult to make!
I must have done each one 4 or 5 times, 
before they looked right. 

They have a coating of Spectrum Noir
glitter pen on, their hats and scarves.
Not that you can see it!!


Thanks for stopping by and I love to read your lovely messages.
They are much appreciated.

Have a lovely weekend. It's supposed to be sunny and warm here
on Sunday. I don't like the cold and even put the heating 
on last night and again tonight!

Big hugs,
Carol

Sold my Fairy Door and lots of other big items too.
Loads of Christmas items went, including 
all my packs of gift tags.

Thank you for popping in and would love to hear
what you think of Mr & Mrs Snow!!

That's A Bunny!!

Surprise!! Yes another post!!

What is going on with me!! I only finished
making this yesterday, Thursday!

I made the bunny with my Hearty Clay.
I thought it could be a 'Tooth Fairy' box,
for a girl or boy. Hence the colours.


Well that's it for now.
Off to Tesco for the weekly shop.

Have a lovely weekend, whatever you do.

A big Thank You, to all of my lovely followers
that took the time, to not only visit my blog, 
but to leave a lovely message too.

A Fairy Door - Now A House!!

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post.
They always make me smile.

This is another of my projects, that took quite a while to do. 
I knew I wanted to make it a bit different from the
plain Fairy Door it was when I bought it.

Also, if it's a Fairy Door, I wanted the children to 
see Fairies when they opened the door.

So firstly I removed the point on the top of the frame
and also the lock, as it was a bit chunky for me.

I painted the door and covered the frame with my Driftwood.
Finding the pieces of Driftwood that fitted together and 
getting that right, took me ages!

I added a Lily of the Valley Fairy on a toadstool,
 on the outside, stamped and painted on Watercolour paper. 
And just a few tiny butterflies!!
Oh!! And a few flowers and foliage. 

I also made a box that was the shape of the frame
and deep enough to put some fairies into it.



So when the door is opened, there are three fairies inside.


I had great fun making this, even though it wasn't easy to do.
I hope it doesn't sell too quick, as I don't think 
I will make another one!

The pictures are a bit rubbish, as it was a bit gloomy 
when I took them.

Thanks again for taking time to visit my little blog.
Your messages are always treasured.

Big Hugs,
Carol

To The Beach!!

It's me again, here is another posting!!
I know a bit of a shock!!

I generally don't post all of my makes, as I don't want them copied.
So I finished making this last Wednesday
and took the plunge to post it.

I used two kits of boxes from Tando,
that I had to put together with a bit of glue. 
Then came the job of
deciding how I was going to decorate them!
I needed to, before I glued them all together. 


I wanted to make a clock in one of the bigger boxes,
which was only 10.3cm x 7cm. 
The surfboard I made from a piece of Balsa wood. 

The shells we collected on our Spanish holidays,
many moons ago!
The Beach Hut, was a Paper Artsy set of nautical stamps,
that I bought from The Craft Barn.


The Beach scene, I painted with Distress Inks onto 
The Langton Water colour 300gsm paper. 
Just added a bit of fencing, moss and boulders (beads!). 

The boat in the small box, was a Hobby Art stamp set.
I stamped it twice and decoupaged the body of the boat.
The background was just done with Copics 
and a bit of dusting with chalks. 

The Seahorse was a free die on a magazine and the To The Beach
sign, I made from another piece of Balsa Wood
.

I then framed the whole thing with Drift Wood, that I collected 
from a beach. I had to treat it before I could use it.
That process took 3 weeks to sanitise it!!

Well I hope you like it.
I don't have any craft fairs for a few weeks, so it will
have to wait to see if it will sell!

I still have a few more projects to post!!

So thanks for stopping by and to those who left a message,
on my last couple of posts, a big thank you.

Big hugs
Carol

Another One Took Flightt!!

I know a bit of a shock!!
Another posting in 2 weeks!!

I have plenty in 'Draft' and still not posted.

Another one that I sold at the last Craft Fayre.
It's first outing and it went in the afternoon.

It was quite a big heart and I used mainly dies.
I did create the sky and the rainbow with inks though!

I cut the castle 3 times and made it a 
bit more 3D. Also did the same with the clouds.

The unicorn was backed with glitter card 
and then 3D over the already 3D clouds. 



I must admit, I don't really get the 'Unicorn' thing!!
I love horses but at least when the Unicorn thing
cools down, I can cut the horn off and
I then still have a pretty horse die to use.

So there we are, another posting.

Thanks for stopping by. I loved reading
the messages you have left me on my posts.
So a big 'Thank You' to you all.

Big hugs,
Carol
