I have just finished this card for my friend. It's her niece's first communion on Saturday and she was a little disappointed with what was available in the shops so asked me to see what I could come up with.

I have used an A5 card with Cuddly Buddly images from Church Angels and Pink frames collections. I have decoupaged up the elements and added the essential bling (stickles) to the wings. I added the text in Word using WordArt

This is a folder I have made to send off some stamped images. I got the idea from Frans blog (thanks Fran) All instructions are Here ...

Not bad for my first attempt (even if I do say so myself lol). It's made to fit 6x4" record cards in.

I used Bazzil Fourz Turquoise card, Basic Grey Two Scoops (A La Mode) paper and one of the new Penny Black clear stamps (coloured with Prismas and sansador) mounted on Bazzil Bling circles

Penny Black Challenge Blog

New Saturday challenge blog starts on Saturday 14th June.

This is your chance to use some of your Penny Black stamps as well as your Magnolia ones haha

See my Challenge blog list over on the right

The Secret Crafter June Challenge - FAIRIES

As it says in the title the challenge is an easy one - just make a card and include at least one fairy and that is it. To take part you need to register on the forum and post your entry in the June challenge thread.

As usual there is a prize for the random winner - this month it is the Cuttlebug Tag team combo set - 'Build a flower'

My contribution ......

Get crafting and good luck!

I've finally bit the bullet !

Aahh well, I've gone an done it now!!!

Finally got myself a blog and joined the internet revolution (a bit late I know!).

Please be gentle with me as I am still learning the ins an outs of this. Give me a computer and I can take it apart, upgrade it and put it back together again with only a couple of screws left over (and it still works lol), but this blogging lark will take me a bit of getting used to.

Don't promise to blog every day but i'll do my best.

Blog candy will come. I've just gotta decide the milestones. I want to give a little back to all those talented people out there who have helped inspire me.

So wish me luck and away we go...................................
