A few more creations for work colleagues birthdays.

Crafty greetings to you all. Hope you are all keeping well. 

November has arrived, this year is passing by so quickly. 
 Here are some cards that I have made for work colleagues, they absolutely loved them. My plan now is to find out their favourite colour, and make the card using this knowledge. It usually takes about a week to get all members of staff to sign the card, which is a challenge in itself. 

A few more creations.

Good evening crafty friends. Well the end of October is upon us, time just flies by, Halloween tomorrow got plenty of goodies for the children. It's been a very hectic few months, but now it's time to nuclear down to some serious crafting. Would like to share my lastest creations with you. Hope you like them. 

This was a card for my daughters birthday. Made using honey doo flower stamps. 

This card was also made for Daughters birthday.

Fishing card.

Afternoon crafty friends. 

Today I am showing you the fishing card I made last night. 
I have made this for a friends dad. Left it a bit late, so searched the Internet for some inspiration. Found the card I liked, and it meant I could use the crealies dies and hobby art fishing stamps that I brought a few months ago. 

Used a 6" linen card inked and stamped everything in momento new sprout. Coloured fisherman with spectrum noir pens. Was quite surprised at how quick the card went together.

Crafting retreat Daventry.

Had a great time at the Oyster stamps retreat in Daventry. 3rd time I have attended the retreat with my best friend Tracy, 2nd time her mum has come along. We had an absolutely fantastic time even though we were all feeling under the weather.  The workshops were fantastic, learnt a lot. The first cards I would like to share are the cards made at Eileen Godwins workshop. 
We used a circle template to do the background then we had a choice of stamps to use I used the studio 949 flower stamp and design by ryn butterfly. I used glossy accents on the flower petals to give it a raised look. Was very pleased with the finished cards.
