I Want To Hold Your hand.

Just thought I would show you this little tag I made using WINTER POST from Stampin up, I just love this set for all year round as it has the postcard header, which is so useful.

Happy Birthday To You

Hello Bloggers, are you all having a good week, do hope so.
I have made this for my crafty friend Louise its her Birthday today, she loves everything Autumn especially the colours, loves trees and owls and buttons  so I knew that I had to include them somewhere, I think it is quite a fitting card for her.
 5 of us crafty girls have all met up for coffee this morning, we have had so many giggles and such a good time hope you enjoyed it Birthday girl, I certainly did.

Dont forget you still have time to go with the Sir Stampalot Challenge
Autumn Breezes a button and a bow.

I have used Sizzix embossing folder fall set. and coloured the raised embossing with distress inks it took a while but I think it was worth it. I have used SU linen thread to make the scalloped edge on the side.
the girl with doggy is Penny Johnson Looking Chic
and the words woodware.
the punch is SU.

Thursday, 7 October 2010

Its a Beautiful Day

First of all don't forget to enter Our Sir Stampalot Challenge the theme is Autumn breezes, buttons and bow(s)
scroll down to see the amazing prize this month, or click on the link.

This is something my lovely ladies made on Monday night when I did an SU party, This is as near to a mans card as I get, I hate making Men's cards but really enjoyed making this, I think its suitable for male or female.
just feel there is a bit of a gap top left hand side but buttons where to big as this card only measures 3  1/2"  X  2  1/2"
any suggestions welcomed.

  The linen thread bow is just hiding the word friends which is stamped from Tiny tags and the pheasant and all the gorgeous leaves and grasses are from the stamp set called AUTUMN DAYS.  I have used the small jewelry tag to punch out the tag.
everything on the card is using SU products even down to the inks.

sorry I haven't been around so much still not feeling myself, and have got a poorly boy at home today, hence why I have managed to post something, cant do the hoovering or the dusting makes to much noise!!! Any excuse!!

Ahh!
I kept seeing covered notebooks and thought I would have a go,

Stuck on you.

Hello Girls, Sorry I haven't been to visit you this last few days, on my way now!!
I have just got back form a trip around Yorkshire, we have been to Leeds Armories, which made me yawn a bit but the boys liked it, so that's all that mattered, then we went on to Whitby and Robin hoods Bay, now there my mouth stayed closed, I didn't yawn once it was great.

I am in love with this camper van stamp, hope you like it too, I just cant stop using it, and this Christmas its going have Fairy lights on it, well why not! I know its a bit on the Bright side, but occasionally I am Bright!! Honest!
back soon love Chris xx

and my favourite stamp of the moment is the green leaf edged around the card its so useful
Thought I would enter it into a couple of challenges
I have chosen STAMPING B'S "create a scene"

My Song title is moving on up by M People

Tuesday, 10 August 2010


Last year I forgot to give My friend Jo her Birthday card, (I am a bit dilatory) I didn't forget her Birthday though.

so this year I thought I would make up for it by giving her last years as well!!

thank goodness her name isn't too long like Esmeralda or Constantine, just having a random moment !!

the papers are October Afternoon I think they are my most favourite ever.

and the letters are cut from the cricut using storybook cartridge.

back soon love Chris xx

Got to give it up!! (still going with my song titles!)

Good Evening all you crafty people, have you had a crafty day, I do hope so.
This is something I made as a demonstration model for Sir Stampalot, In other words I had to give it up!!, every one say arr!! I may treat myself though it would look so nice sat on my untidy desk. the ribbon box comes in a flat pack, If I sold quite a few of them I could have one of my very own, (so if you fancy one just remember to say you saw it on Chris's blog tehe!!) I painted it and added paper and of course those cuttlebug quilled flowers as seen on the last 2 posts, it is made by kaiser craft and I got it from good old Sir Stampalot.
hope you like, here is a close up of the quilled flowers. have a great weekend love Chris xx

I'm back for a while, fed up with the decorating so having a few weeks off! YIPPEE!
Also had my brother and his wife with 3 children under 7 so been quite busy one way and another.
Just a very simple card to share with you this evening a bit of hessian which I begged of my my friend Fleur of a
"passion for craft" (check her out if you haven't already) some October afternoon papers and a cuttlebug quilled flower which are so easy to do, I just love making them. I know they are a little pricey, but you can make big flowers small flowers even tiny teeny flowers, I have another project on the go with lots of flowers and will show you later next week.
I know you wont hold your breath!!

Sir Stampalot Challenge, Punch It.

Hello guys, yes its that time again the Sir Stampalot Challenge, can you believe that a month has passed so quickly, I have been a bad blogger, as some of you know I have been without my laptop, But its mended now so YIPPEE, I cant believe how I have missed it.
But you will have to bare with me as this time of the year I am trying to keep on top of a large garden, and I am stupid enough to be decorating as well at the moment.

Anyway the challenge is Punch it.
here I have used just one Martha Stewart punch loop edger I have laid it down using the pink card and stood it up using the turquoise card.
the flower I have made using ribbon.
the scallop is cut out with the big shot on chipboard.
and the swirls are magenta chipboard which I covered with my paper which took me forever,with lots of small files and emery boards.
I can not tell you what my papers are as I only had a few bits left if anyone knows can you tell me.
Anyway peeps This is what you can win!

can you believe it because I can't.

Sister's are doing it for themselves!

Hi there out there in blog land, today I have been married 25 years so we are celebrating our silver wedding and what a fabulous day its been, I am writing this with quite a few drinks inside me and I don't normally drink, hic! so who No's what it will say in the morning.
The stamp on this card I just had to have, for those of you that know me would realise that the 2 ladies on the front were much like my self in appearance with their fabulous tiny waists, (if there had been a political party for sarcasm a fortnight ago I would have voted for it!) No seriously, as a child Mum made all our clothes so I was used to seeing sewing patterns like this, in fact she still has them and I am hoping she is going to let me incorporate one into a card along with the stamp, which I have loved using as it is so different.
I am still laptopless (ooh err) so struggling to get on a computer so not been commenting as much as I would like to, sorry guys.
thanks for taking the time to have a peep lots of love Chris xx
stamp set is Hero arts make your own
the papers are cosmo cricket material girl the tape measure's are cut out of a 36 x6x6 pad

Hi Everyone,I'm back, I'll try not to bore you with Holiday pictures though!!
Yes We have been away cruising the Med , a special Holiday for us with our silver wedding in mind, even though we don't celebrate it until the 18Th of May, couldn't go then as our son has his Sat's and we weren't allowed to take him out of school then.
We had a reasonable time, though it never entered my mind that I would suffer from motion sickness, so that was a bit of a shock the plus side of it is that I have lost 3 lbs I usually put on at least half a stone when away, so that's a bonus.
I didn't do any blogging on board ship as it was a ridiculous price (50p a minute) and I just felt they were being greedy so I went without for a whole fortnight, I was lucky enough to meet up with a very special Lady who I follow that lives in Gibraltar,
I will tell you more about that another day.
I think this is one of the quickest cards I have ever done, its very simple as you can see hope you like, I know its a bit boring but just wanted to say hello.
back soon .
lots of love Chris xx
I'm still going along with my song titles as my titles,
and yes this ones by Jason Mraz, I adore his music.

Life is just a bowl of cherries.

This card has been hidden away, thought I would bring it out for an airing!
the image is Penny Black
the swirls and tab are done on the cricut using wild card, and the papers I have just cut round to do a thingy with!!!! (its Late and I have man flu even though I'm a woman I'm trying to get out of cleaning our Bearded Dragons cage out!
no seriously I do feel really grot.) I can't remember what they are maybe someone out there will let me know.
if you look closely at the tab on the side you can see stitch marks this is off wild card and I love it.
The cherries I have done 3 time with glossy accents its built them right up.
Also just to let you know that a Dear Friend of mine Jo has just started a new blog it is called MANGO PANCAKES
and believe me she is good keep your eye on what she's up to because her work is very original.
