Hay all, just a quickie to say i haven't fallen off the face of the earth, just still really enjoying making cute cards!!! I know, who would of thought it! You can see all my latest cuteness at
I have been dibbling with the odd piece of altered art but 1 piece is turning into a labour of love/hate at the minute.. ever started something and its much harder than you imagined it would be!! I'll say no more lol
Anyways, sorry there is nothing new and exciting to look at here... Thanks for stopping by anyways, and pop on over for a peek at the cute cards, your opinions are always welcome on my work no matter what i'm making, and who knows, you may just like 'em! xx

Sid's Fabric brooch swap!

Over at UK Stamper i'm taking part in Sid's fabric brooch swap.
We all had to gather 6 4x4 squares to swap, and then with what we received back we had to make a brooch... now to be honest i did struggle with this and didn't think i'd end up joining in as my mind was a blank... but luck had it and only a week b4 deadline a light bulb appeared above my head.. so i got to making straight away...
and this is what i created...

All i did was to make a cardboard body, and i sewed a strip of each fabric together to make up a mini dress, i wrapped it round the body shape and glued in place, backing it with a mirrored image piece of card to hide all the lose ends and for somewhere to attach to the clip. I left the prettiest fabric as the skirt..quite simple really but i think it looks cool, although a somewhat larger brooch! {think it was about 2"x 4" when finished, and that's not including the skirt train}


Not sure if its something i would wear but Mannie got quite attached..

I eventually managed to prize it away and get it posted to Sid :O)
I hope whoever gets it likes what i've done xxx

Perfect Day {LTD#18}

Just a quickie post.... i feel like i'm neglecting my altered side but at the moment i'm on a cute trip and think it may last a while!!
I want to say sorry to my regular viewers if nothing new appears as often as it has been, i'll try and pop on here inbetween all the cuteness!!
In the meantime, it was my friend Ann's birthday yesterday and this is the card i made for her x

I used one of my paperbag studio stamps inked with spiced marmalade, mustard seed, fired brick and vintage photo distress inks. I framed each image with wire that had been wrap/twisted with fibres and seed beads.
The wording was just stamped and edged with seed bead coated wire.
I must be physic as the theme over at Lots To Do this week is Let's Face It !
I know i was early but it stll counts..Right ! LOL
Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Birthday Ann, hope your day was wonderful x
