Happy Holidays

I haven't made a shaker card in years so when I was asked to make one recently it was a step back in time.
I used a piece of 12 x 12 card which I then cut on an angle. I then scored on the 4" and 8".
the plane is from around the world die cutting set and the clouds as are the clouds.
The beach hut is from the Ahoy
There stamp set as is the rope knot.
The edges were inked using my handmade felt tool and inks.

Forever Friend

This card is another distressed one.
 This time I distressed all the layers of the bear as well as the layers on the card.
I used a hat pin and a few beads that I had in my stash as well as a few gems.

Little bird house

So many people have asked where I found the template for the little bird house.

So here is the link just click on it and it will take you to Nichole Heady's page.
Thanks for a lovely project Nichole.

As you know I love kraft card so I cut the base from a pre scored square card.  I used my x cut die to create the roof  and used some of my off cuts.

Old Gaffers day

This morning I will be fighting through the crowds and boats at Yarmouth on Isle of Wight as today is Old Gaffers day.
I can see it being a very stressful journey but so worth it.
