Long time no see and Merry Christmas

So I dropped off the face of the earth ... again ... so just thought I'd drop in and let you know I'm still alive and kicking.
Been busy crocheting away on various things so now I'm going to bore you to tears with a few of  my creations!!! lol 

Couple of giant granny square blankets: 

And this is in extra large one:

Swarovski Crystal and Pearl Bracelet

 I'm going to a wedding this weekend and couldn't find a bracelet to match my outfit .... so I made my own!!

It's a flat spiral weave bracelet, made with genuine swarovski crystals, white pearls and silver lined seed beads. It looks fantastic with my outfit even though I do say so myself! :) 

Have a great weekend whatever you're doing :) xx

Road Trip Scarf

Well here I am again, still alive and kicking!! 

I've been crocheting and bead making and designing for Hunkydory and just seem to have forgotten I had a blog!! 

Here's a scarf I've just crocheted, and I have to say it was one of the quickest and easiest things I've ever made. The link for the free pattern is here

I used James C Brett Baby Marble DK and a 5mm hook and it drapes like a dream! 
Until next time :) xx

Pop up box card

After seeing a lot of these pop up box cards around I thought I'd have a bash myself and make one for my Mum's birthday.  I followed these easy, peasy instructions with no measuring involved! Thanks Nikky x 

I used silver mirri card, stamping up papers and some fabric flowers I bought from W H Smith years ago!! It took me ages to do it, but that was only because I couldn't decide how to place the flowers and leaves. Now I've done one it won't take me as long next time (I hope)!!


 And yes, it does fold flat!

Happy Birthday Mum, love you lots :) xx

Crochet baby dress

Been very busy with my Hunkydory DT work, but in between I've found time to pick up my crochet hook and make a few baby items ready for a few little babies that are waiting in the wings to make an appearance. 

This is my first baby dress and I'm really pleased with the results. 

I've also done one in peaches and cream but I'll show you that one later. Hope you all had a fantastic Easter :) xx

Card and Calendar

Here's a couple more from Hunkdory and the "Floral Fantasia" collection. 

This was just one sheet of the A4 encapsulated glitter card cut down to make a card and a calendar. 

 I've still got a few more to show you from this gorgeous collection before the new collection launches next Friday, so I'll be back soon :)

Floral Fantasia

Another card made with the gorgeous "Floral Fantasia" collection from Hunkydory.

  I used adorable scorable for the background and scored with my Hougie. 
The decoupage is already die cut which makes life a lot easier, and I just covered the whole image and sentiment with an acetate dome shape. Simples!!

I'll have a few more to show you over this next week so hope you can pop back and have a look :)

Long time .. no see!!!

Well I bet you thought I'd gone for good didn't you? No such luck!! 

Just not had the enthusiasm to make cards since before Christmas and when it becomes a chore and not a hobby you know something has to give! 

After a very difficult decision I decided to step down from my DT positions with Just Inklined and La Pashe, and I'd just like to thank Jak Heath and the team from the bottom of my heart for giving me the opportunity to work alongside them. 

I'm still designing for Hunkydory though and on that note, I'm going to post my very first card this year using the brand spanking new "Floral Fantasia" which is the current Pick of the Week on Create and Craft TV.

I'll be back with another one tomorrow, and hopefully I'll keep up with my blogging as I've a few other projects on the go, including crochet and jewellery.

Hope you had a nice weekend whatever you were doing :) xx
