Hello and goodbye

Hi All

Sorry for not being around much but I have not been well again and although I have managed to do some crafting have not posted.

I have made a decision to close my blog for a while I will still be making stuff and will post my stuff on Docrafts so if anyone wants to catch up with me and what I am doing you will find me under the name Alison01.

But before I go I have some blog candy to give away to enter this you must be already be following me those that enter that have not followed me previously will be removed sorry but this is for my blog friends only.

I have a number of stamps, and some punches that I no longer use plus a couple of other bits and bobs so please make sure you enter, I will be closing the draw on the 15th of July.

But to be going on with here are a few of my makes which I made recently

This is a card I made with some crafting advice from my crafty buddy Rachel

 this card I embossed then waxed then added cosmic shimmer ink on top to create a distressed look
aperture and with sentiment

 This card I made using Tissue paper and gluing it onto the back of card left to dry overnight then inked added water to mix colours then added the die cut flowers leaves sentiment and butterfly

This is for my daughter Pauline who will be 42 on Friday and again used the tissue paper method to create the backing papers

This was a small plain photo frame which I coloured with cosmic shimmer Colour Cloud inks then added flowers, shells and some dew drops added a picture of our great granddaughter Darcy Rose in her Easter Bunny Bonnet, this will be part of Pauline's birthday present

This next card was made using the Heartfelt creations Botanical Orchid Collection

and last but not least meet my new crafting buddy
Her name is Izzy and she is 9 weeks old, she terrorises poor Bella

If you would like to enter your name below for the drawer.  Good luck to all

I still have that lovely soap you sent me and just can't seem to use it as it was a gift. I love your display and your creativity will be missed. I have too been caught up in family matters so hence not a lot of visiting done. I do hope you will keep in contact via email and let me know how you are your sweet little companion and take care....lots of hugs...xx
