Princess decoupge card

I've had a little play with some papers that I bought at the NEC show last month.  I managed to elbow my way around the very packed Craft Pound Stall - they were selling everything for £1 or 12 items for £10 - so I had to fill my basket! 

Anyway, the papers are from a Dovecraft 8x8 pack that were a £1 bargain but I wasn't really sure what to do with the little decoupage images.  I did a bit of cutting and sticking and I hope you like the simple little card that I've made.   The border punch is one by Martha Stewart.

I'm off to enjoy the last hour or so of sunshine in my garden, on this glorious St George's Day. 

Thanks for looking,

I may have to start dress making again now - I am being inspired by this programme!!!

Can't wait for Tuesday's episode - who do you think will win?

Fed up with colouring

My crafting mojo has certainly been AWOL these past few weeks - hence the lack of posts on my blog.  I've made a couple of quick and easy cards today to get me back in the swing of things.  My problem, I think, is that I like to try lots of different types of craft and I get bored really easily.  I love my pro markers but I am really bored with colouring at the moment so I am trying out a few different things for me.  I spent plenty of pennies at the NEC craft show last month so I'm just playing with a few bits 'n' bobs this week.

This is a 5x5 scallop card and I've used Papermania paper and paper flowers, together with some Spellbinders leaf dies.  Plain and simple.  This will be ideal for when a not-so-special card is required ..... us crafters all do it!  Recipients can tell their importance by how much the card is embellished!!

Thanks for looking,
