Mother & Daughter Crafty Day

It's my grandma's 90th birthday next week so i thought i had better crack on making her cards from me and mum, till she decided she would have a go at making hers too!! To my delight we then decided today we would card make together, both giving ideas and inspiration to each other and i think i am very lucky having a mum who takes interest in my hobbies, now card making and cross stitching!!

Had a really lovely unexpected crafty morning with my mum!!

 I also tidied my craft room up, wonder how long it will stay tidy hmmm...

Kreative Kards for krafty people

Few of my krafty friends are feeling down so i made these cards based on the pear tree designs blog i am sure they will put a smile on their faces, thoroughly enjoyed crafting the night away!!

The verse is from this website and says:
Crafts are here, crafts are there.
My craft supplies are everywhere.
I really should clean this mess,
But I like it, I must confess.
Floor is littered, chairs are piled,
Kitchen’s looking pretty wild.
On the table counter too,
Seems that any place will do.
Hall is stacked with cartons high,
Filled with things folks like to buy.
Garage is full, but so far …
There’s still room to park the car.
I never have an idle day,
New ideas come my way.
Don’t know yet what I’ll create,
But at least my imagenation’s great.
My family smiles, they don’t complain,
Although at times I am a pain.
But when all is said and done,
I really am a crafty one !!

Candle Stamping Failure - sort of

I wanted to make my friend something special for her birthday, i decided on funkying up a candle as she is into candles. after following steps precisely on the internet my candle stamping failed, it smudged and blurred and wasn't happy with the results, i used a hairdryer to transfer the stamped image but the paper kept moving, in the end i measured a piece of tracing paper and stamped that then colured in with promarkers and attached to the candle with a pretty pink ribbon, i know she will still like it, but next time i will research more into candle stamping and maybe invest in a heat tool,

here is her birthday card too as she is cat mad!!!
