Kitty cats

Afternoon All

It’s a sad day for Kanban lovers – including me.  I have learnt today that they are going into liquidation.  I don’t know if it will be possible but I sincerely hope they can find a way of bringing us their fantastic products still.  I have lots of kits so I won’t be short for quite a while yet! But, still, sad to hear the news. :-(

On to my project…I have made a box from square cards! Not much measuring and easy peasy  - it needs to be for me to do it ;-) Box was decorated with Kanban’s Feline Friends card kit.  I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. 

 I made the flowers freehand by cutting them out of the Kanban backing paper and then added a few Spellbinders D-lites - fantastic flourish one.

Thank you to my new followers for following my little 'ol crafty blog & thank you to all for your lovely comments left on here for me.  So appreciated!

Right, I am off now to craft some more.  Hubby is home ill (that rotten 'man flu') and it's snowing a blizzard outside - so if anyone needs me I shall be acting between nurse & crafter! LOL

Until next time,

Take care,

Mandy :)

Good morning one & all!

It’s a dreary day here in my neck of the woods, so a great chance for me to craft, craft, and craft!!

Here is a card I made last night - vintage themed.  I love vintaage stuff – I’ll  be able to class myself as vintage soon! hehe 

My card ingrediants as follows:

Papers by: collection Combo 'Western Romance & all about me.'
Digi rose which was coloured with my Spectrum Noir pens:
 FS2, FS3, FS6 (for the flower)
DG3, DG4, JG6 (leaves & stem)
lace from my stash
Pearls from my stash
Cosmic shimmer-pearl
Paper doily from my stash.

 I would like to enter my card into: 
the theme is VINTAGE.

So, I hope your day is a good one, thanks for stopping by. I do appreciate your thoughts or comments !

Until next time,

Mandy :)

Happy March everyone!

Happy March everyone!

I have been a busy bee, making Mother’s day cards & not much time for blogging! Typical!

 I’ve also just completed an order for 35 baby shower cards – I have not had a commission order this big before! I’m always worrying that I can live up to people’s expectations when I’m asked to make cards for them.  I don’t really know why I worry as I have not had any negative feedback at all.  Silly, aint I ? hehe!  Anyway, I am quite pleased how they turned out. They were kept quite simple at the request of the expectant Mum!  After making the cards I made up a box from Crafter’s Companion’s Centura Pearl card stock and the Panda Digi is from The Paper Shelter. They have now been collected & I’m waiting on feedback from her *gulps*.

A few of the cards – excuse bad lighting when photo was taken (bit late in the day)
            The box is made using the template created by

  Such an quick & easy template to use !

Well, that’s it for now.  I’m sooo tired & sore so need some rest time.  Monday tomorrow and more crafting to do…

Hope all is well in your crafty world..

Until next time,

Mandy :-)
