Hi crafters

well no card to show you today but thought I would update you on the snow we had yesterday , Gosh I kept looking out of the window and thinking will this ever stop , we didnt have as much as last time thank goodness but still enough to make the roads very bad

This morning the roads are very slippy apparently , when my hubby went to work he then let me know as I have to drive early this morning

Also got another picture to show you , we are having a puppy in January he he , so this is her , we still havent decided on a name yet so anyone who has got any ideas for names let me know please

right must go speak later xx

Hi people me again he he cant you tell Ive done all my christmas cards now , and ,moving on to next years cards he he

The following cards have all been made with DREAMEES products Ill list down how Ive made them in case you may want to try something simila

Here goes

The small heart one, this is an offcut of a previous card I made so dont throw any bits away , I embossed a backing paper from the love mini cd then attached ribbon to the corner just for an accent , then just glued the heart topper from the same cd and added gems , a very quick card to make

the next one is the flower pink one

this is a square card which i decided I wanted to put flowers in between the card , so I got the card blank I needed then used the Dreamees stamp set    fiery flowers so I knew the size of the gap I needed , so then cut the card accordingly , stamped and coloured the flowers then putting the card flat on your workspace put the right hand bit of card level with the back of the card and glue the flowers on the side s which will hold the card together, after this i added a bit of backing paper and decoupaged hearts again all from the Love mini collection cd

the last one today is the green one

I got the card blank cut the mirri card to the right size then worked out the white mat bit of card to go on top run those through the cuttlebug with my chosen die , attached to the green mirri card , attached ribbon to the matt part of the card before adding to the main card , using the Dreamees stamp  set circles Run Of The Mill stamped happy birthday onto a pice of card then cut out with a nestie die , also the next size up on the nestie for the green mat too, stick together with double sided tape , then  stamped the  Dreamees  Absolutely Tea Potty stamp in the centre of the happy birthday , made a little hole in the green nestie die cut to then put jump rings through to then dangle from the ribbon , knot the ribbon in place,  then attach the whole matt and layer to the main card blank

I hope you enjoy looking at these cards

you can purchase any Dreamees products from

happy crafting Carol xx
