So cute...

I just love this digi image.  It was so cute and I got it along with a couple of other 'kitty related images' which just happened to jump into my shopping basket when I visited the site!

Some snippets of backing paper along with this gorgeous white die cut - I think it came from Gill, I don't know if I've used it in the right way Gill, but it just sort of came together!

I love these little sentiment tickets and have collected a few.  I was going to try making a few of my own but with so many hospital/medical things going on at the moment I've not had a chance to try.

A kitty charity card

Another one to show you, as I said there will be a few. 

All of the items came from the Snippets Folder, apart from the cat which was from a freebie set in a magazine.  I was given another set of these when I went to a craft sale many moons ago so have double the amount to use!

A little brad along with a rub on (another freebie after a purchase!) and it's all done.  The gorgeous paper came from Gill, along with some other goodies she's sent me - you'll see quite a few of those in the cards coming up Gill...!

WOYWW 151 and a Rudolph Card - phew still on schedule!

Here's another Rudolph card - if you're not sure what it is, click on the link and you'll find out - you'll be so pleased you did!!!  I might make more than one now as I'getting used to making them each time.
This lovely image was sent to me by Di - thanks Di...she's so cute!!!  I added some Christmas backing paper to it and then some snowflakes (die cuts which were part of my Christmas present from Di last year).  I added some Stickles Glitter Glue to them - and as usual managed to get some on me too!
I also used my gorgeous Fence Die Cut I got for Christmas 2011 too.  Added some Stickles glue to the tops and edges as well and it's all backed on to some silver mirror card.

Also it's WOYWW 151 today. If you're not sure what this is then go and have a look at Julia's page.  Here's what is on myworkdesk this week.  First of all an envelope arrived in the post and it contacted some gorgeous fairy papers and some cards too.  I made them into quick makes just adding some peel off's here and there.  Also some lovely sentiments which will be used soon on cards for my charities.  Sorry I can't remember who sent them to me, there was no note included and I've checked back in my email box and still can't find who it is.  I humbly apologise if it's you, and I'll gladly say a big THANK YOU for your kindness. 

 Secondly for WOYWW - a big post this week! - is our Domi.  Bless, she's 19 now, well between 19 and 22 according to Battersea as we checked on her paperwork from when we got her about 12 years ago now.  She's such a sweetie and likes to help me craft when she can.  Although I think if you look closely she's falling asleep - it's quite a job being a cat, so many things to do, eat, sleep, meow, sleep, chase butterflies, sleep, see other cats off her garden, sleep, eat, sleep, meow, sleeep!!!!

She has perfected the knack of sleeping exactly on top of what I'm working on!!!

Cute Little Meeces!

A really cute stamped image here.  I think it's a Penny Black.  I used more of the snippets papers in my snippet envelope and added some of the black peel offs and a lovely sentiment ticket freebie I found many moons ago now.

I wasn't sure about the orange card to start with but I think it makes it stand out which is good.  Hopefully they will all be sold and raise lots of pennies!

This is SO true!

I can just imagine this little cutie being spoiled rotten can't you??!?!  I thought I'd make some dog ones as well.  I'm going to take a mixed box of cards for them which hopefully will sell well and make much needed funds for them.

Again more snippets, but I'm making them go a long way as you can see!

For the Kitty Charity Fayre

You'll be seeing quite a few of these for a while.  All made from snippets.

I've kept them fairly simple and flat so they can be posted without any additional cost.  Postage is SO expensive now we as crafters have to think of these when making cards.

Hope you like them.

WOYWW again....

Hop on over to Julia's to find out more about WOYWW.  You don't have to have a workdesk to join in, as many of you know, I craft on my bed so here's my workdesk!

Here's my latest creations being made for my animal charity fundraising.  I make most of my cards to help cancer and animal charities.  Of course I also make cards for family and friends too.  It helps to take my mind off my health problems and I just love it!  Always have done and always will I suppose.  A crafter is a crafter forever!

I just love this image of a wedding couple, I like to keep it simple, just alittle colour and some glitter to bling it up (you know me and bling!).  Some other little sentiments hanging around and some gorgeous ribbon I won in a candy a while ago and haven't used yet.  Naughty!

Have fun everyone and looking forward to a sneaky peak around the world!

A Little Moo......!

I've had this little fella in my 'stamped images box' for quite a while and have just found the perfet backing paper for him.  As it's all made of snippets I'm putting him in to Di's Crafty Snippet Challenge.

A simple image but goes well with the sentiment I think don't you?!  Do you think it needs some more embellishment on the nestie?  I'm not sure either way yet!

Kitty's again...!

Well I've 'tried' to use other stamps rather than kitties, but I couldn't resist this little collection!  They look like they're off for a good night out don't they!  Our little 19 year old sweetie would probably just enjoy the peace and quiet instead of going clubbing now!  In case you're wondering she's a cat not a human LOL!!

It's another Snippet card really I suppose, well most of my cards are Snippet Cards as waste not want not, I use all snippets on my charity cardmaking.

You'll be seeing more cat cards soon, I'm making them to help a local cat shelter who is having a Spring Fayre soon.  I took them some handmade crocheted blankets which they loved and boy, did I have to resist stuffing a few of the kitties up my coat before I left!!!!

I said I normally make them for cancer charities, but would help them out with raising funds.  It all helps as they say!!!

Not quite on my workdesk (to find out more about WOYWW go and see Julia's site it'll soon get you on a Wednesday as it's so addictive!), but here's what I've been working on in between the card making.  My DVT leg stops me from crafting on my bed for too long, so instead I decided to make some crocheted blankets for the local Cat Shelter.  I like to help the smaller charities which don't get so much PR.  

Here's some packed away and ready for despatch.  I've also offered to make some cat/dog related animal cards (along with some general cards) for their Summer Fayre.  If anyone would like to help me, just let me know and I'll happily deliver them for you. 

They really do appreciate everything you do for them and as I've been there, I know they really care for their animals and it's lovely to see so many kitties being rehomed.  Yes, I know, I'm a real marshmallow when it comes to animals.

Another Snippets Card

Another Snippet Challenge over at Di's Place. Go and check it out and join in - it's a great way of using up all your 'snippets'!

You may have seen some of this background on another card of mine as I use ALL my snippets in one way or another, nothing gets as far as the recyle bin when I'm card making!

Once again, my lovely Magnolia stamp is used on this card, along with a 'busy' background, so I kept it fairly simple by just putting a pearlised die cut behind her, used some glitter dots (which you can't totally see on this photo - sorry!), along with some more MS PATP offcuts and a little sentiment tag.

Easter Snippet Selection!!!

I've been busy making Easter cards lately and have come up with this set of six from my Snippets Collection.  I already had the glittery eggs and chicks/bunnies/sheep in my stash, so decided to use them up.

I also finished my Easter goodie bags too so I'll show you one of them as the others haven't been posted yet!
Here's another snippet item, this time a goodie bag for Easter treats.  I've made a few of these but can't show the others as they are going in the post later!

A very simple photo here of my "crafting on my bed" for you all. This time it's some Easter cards I've been working on, nothing fancy, nice and simple does it!  My DVT leg has been playing up again so I couldn't craft for long.

Nothing as glamourous as Julia's desk, or anyone else's come to think of it - but it is my craft space.

I'll be sharing my new task with you all soon.  I've got to get a few different images stamped and away I'll go - wind me up like the Duracell bunny and off I go...quite happily....bumbling along (as my Brother calls it!)......well I'm happy in my little world.

Just to say Thanks!

I made this card for a lovely lady I know at one of my many hospitals I frequently visit.  I had a nightmare journey to my latest appointment and in the end traffic made it so bad we had to turn back after being told my Consultant was only doing an AM clinic so we wouldn't make it anyway....argghhh!

Anyhow, this might seem a strange card to give, but believe me, it will make her smile and I really do appreciate all she does to help, so a little Thank You goes a long way!  Oh and yes, she is a black belt, three times over!!!
