Play A Saw

Good morning all, here I am again with another little card.
I had a lot of fun putting this one together.

 

This one was made for my hubby on our wedding anniversary!


The reason behind this odd card is that we went to a party a while back & someone 
actually did play a saw! Yep, the kind you get from hardware stores!
It was incredible! 
We were both stunned. I'd never have believed what a wonderful a 
tune you could produce from a basic saw!


The watch/clock embossed panel was wiped over with gilding wax.
The clippings are from a cider bottle label! Hubby does love a cider!

The lace & buttons are from my stash.
The little sentiment tags are LOTV
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you like my card!

Edited to add:- I was contacted via twitter by a lady who makes the most
beautiful music playing a saw. 
If you have a minute, you can watch her here

I’d like to enter this card in the current challenge at
Daring Cardmakers - A Moment In Time

Lavender & Lace

Hi everyone, happy Friday to you!
Is everyone off for the Bank Holiday weekend?
Here I am with the last of my Lavender Lister samples made from the papercrafting kit.


I love using all the little extra bits off of a sheet to make cards.
For this one used the little butons popped up on foam pads.
The sentiment is from one of the sheets too.
I also used one of the patterned paperw with some ric rac binding, a little lace,
and a few little sticky back gems from my stash!



I absolutely love the colours on this one. 
The image would be great for so many different occassions too. 
I added a little die-cut sentiment, the buttons are rescued from a cardigan 
& the lace is from my stash!
Thanks again for stopping by!

Good Luck

Hi All,
It's been a while but I'm back with a couple of samples I made for 
Splash Crafts who've just introduced a cute 
Care Bears Range which is amazing!


Here I've made a little easel card & used the dies to cut out the images.

The images & papers are  really versatile & great to work with.
Available in a format to suit everyone, there are stamps, dies, embosing folders,
a papercrafting kit & it also comes on a USB so you can 
print & craft until your heart's content.


For this little cutie, I simply used the paper & a sentiment
with some ribbon, lace & a couple of pretty little crochet flowers

Thanks for popping in!
I hope you like my little samples!
I'll be back with more soon!

You're Leaving

Good morning all! 
Thought I'd have another go at Blogging!
Not been getting crafty for a while but I found this little offering when I 
was tidying up my blog, so I thought I'd share with it you today!
Might encourage me to do a bit more!

This is a card I made for a friend who was leaving her job a while back!
Why nuns? It's a long story! lol


These ladies are from Mo's Digital Pencil.
The image is called Joy & these ladies certainly look like the epitome of Joy!
I have to say that my friend found just as much Joy in her new venture!


I coloured the image with a mix of flexmarkers & promarkers
then added a dotty background. As I was colouring, a number of songs 
kept popping into my head but the one that stuck was Joyful Joyful,
from Sister Act 2. Here's a little video!


I hope it works & you enjoy the music!


The font I have used for the sentiment is called Nunnery 
which you can download here for free!
The ribbon was in my stash. I got it in a bargain basket at
 a local haberdashers. I gave is a bit of a heat with my heat gun
to crinkle it up a bit, I love that look!
Thanks for stopping in to look at my card.
I appreciate your visits & love reading your comments!
