Swaps for playday in April

Going to keep the writing very limited for this post because I wanted to share with you all of the photos and dont want to fill up your page!
These are the swaps that I made for my crafty playmates at our playday on Sunday.
They are little easel cards but with a little drawer, if that makes sense!

This pic shows the easel up and the drawer closed.
Here is the drawer open
This pic shows the lovely button I used for decoration
This pic shows you the three colourways for the three playmates
This one was my prototype.  It didnt come out quite as good as I had wanted it to because the drawer was a bit loose which meant that I hadn't measured acurately enough.
This is work in progress to the original 4 drawer/easel card I WAS going to make, however it was so very time consuming that I decided that just one drawer would be enough!! 
Absolutely loved the colour card and the patterned paper used on this one
Hope the ladies enjoy their gifts.

Thank you so very much for stopping by today
Take care

Birthday cards x

I had an absolutely lovely weekend (last weekend) which included a 10th birthday party for my grand daughter which involved bouncy castles and discos  -  us adults had as much fun as the children did!!
The day before my birthday we  went to my eldest brothers 60th birthday party (where did that time go?!) and celebrated my lovely husbands birthday too  -  p h e w!  really busy weekend.  To end it was my birthday.   I received lots of lovely cards and best wishes from lots of my lovely crafty friends and family.  
Some of you may know that I also have a Stampin'Up! blog called Twinks Stamping ( so you may have already seen these pics posted on there.  Please forgive me if you get bored seeing them again!!  I don't often cross over and post on both but just thought all my friends should see these lovely Birthday cards!

So.........  over the next few days I will be posting a few of the gorgeous cards made by my playmates.
Today I am sharing this lovely card from Liz.  It was in my favourite colour and covered in bling!

The background is embossed perfectly
The picture does not do this card justice.  This velum flower has been heat embossed and is beautiful isn't it

The butterflies have all been heat embossed too.
Thank you Liz xx

Thank you too for stopping by today
Take care

Rudolph Challenge April

Here's my entry into this months Rudolph Challenge that is hosted by Sarn of Stamping For Pleasure
Absolutely love the stamp , "Silent Mice" by House Mouse designs.

I have used some snippets in this card (the flames are made from snippets of Silver Glimmer card from Stampin'Up! and have used some snippets of ribbon from my ribbon box!).  Going to nip over to the  Snippets Playground to enter these in that challenge too. 

Have a lovely weekend all.

Thank you for stopping by

Sarn's Birthday card

Today I am sharing a birthday card that I had made for my crafty friend Sarn's birthday.  I hope you like it as I hope she did!!
It is a very different type of card for me to do but I really did like the look of this die.
Of course there is the customary bling (in quite a BIG way)!

After I had sent this to her I realised that I hadn't taken a photo of the card after I had added some glittery butterflies to finish it off!

Hope you had a fab time Sarn!

Thank you for stopping by

Belated birthday card

Today I wanted to share with you my very belated birthday card for Lesley.  I do hope she forgiven me!  

The materials used are predominantly Stampin' Up!.  The gorgeous bling is from Chloe's Creative Cards and the sentiment was from Personal Impressions.

I do believe that this card is  eligible for the Snippets Playground , so I am off over there to see if anyone is about this time of night!  It may be a bit too dark for me though!

Thank you for stopping by
Take care
