Mother's day and Easter

Yes it's time for me to get my butt into gear and make some mother's day and Easter cards for work.
And as I had a couple of new Cd's to play with thought would use that to knock some off my list.

So this one is made from my New Cd from Crafter's companion , it's called Thellwell and is all about funny horses and  I used the card companion part of the Cd to make this card and just used a Promarker to go round the edges of the toppers and card.

The bunny and bear ones are from Happy Hoppers and Gruffies Cd from Joanna Sheen.
I used some papers from my stash for the background and border which punched with a MS border punch, then threaded some ribbon through from my stash. Some centura pearl card to mat my topper and yet again a promarker to go round the edges .Oh and few pearls also from JS

This one I kept simple with just a simple mat of core'dations and some of my crochet flowers with beads from Hobby craft as their centres

This one I went a bit more to town with , with papers from the Cd , centura pearl card for the mats , and some lace that used to be my grandma's.

And another Thellwell one , using paper from the paper pad , some kraft card and topper all from CC and then to finish off some twine and button from my stash

Clean and simple with specturm noir pencils

So When I was off work resting again , I am so sick of not been able to do much but know I'll get there in the end and will carry on plodding along . As always know there is someone worse off than me . Any way in that time I thought would practice some more with my spectrum noir pencils and do some clean and simple cards for the charity shop where I work .

So here is what I have come up with

To make my football card I used card blank from Crafter's companion which is 6x6 , a spellbinder scalloped circle die , some card candi round the edge from JS , the stamp is from stampave and of course coloured with spectrum pencils which are of course from CC and then to finish off and message from my stash .
Then this wedding couple where made , with yet again a spellbinder die as a mat , the image is from Magnoila range and yes coloured with the pencils , bit of ribbon from my stash , message is a Anita's one and the bling from hobbycraft.

So here I am showing off my 1st ever infinity scarf which I crocheted using a UK double stitch it's 30 stiches across and roughly about 60inches long before I sewed the ends together and I think it's a DK yarn as was given it by my mum as she no longer knits .

Have used one of my teddy bears to model it as did not want to do a selfie of me wearing it as looking rather ruff at the moment lol

I hope to be able to sell my items as soon as I get a ETSY shop set up . This one is already sold

So in that time have been crafting but not had much to blog but hope to change that now , especially as now have a new love of crochet . So thought would show of some of my new crafty makes . Plus now have the fun of trying to find room to store my wool stash lol. Ok I know it's not crochet but promise to get a post of that done soon .

And this a Kaiser craft kit that my brother got me for Xmas , used a mix Tim Holtz inks and wow embossing powder and then some twine from my stash.
