Firstly I hope you all enjoyed the fireworks last night that were lighting up the sky, secondly thank you so much to everyone who have left some really lovely comments on my blog of which I am very grateful and also to those of you who are following my blog, and thirdly just wanted to show you my card I made tonight using wallpaper and ribbons from my clothes!
I fell in love with this paper in Homebase and would actually love it covering a wall in my bedroom so I took a (little...honest!!) sample and made this card. I am off to Bournemouth to see my boyfriend tomorrow straight after work so I have been packing for the weekend so haven't had time to do a very detailed card so I just made this nice simple one which can be used for many different occasions. Papermania flower, pearl brad, adhesive gems and ribbons that were once upon a time the hanging loops in one of my tops along with the wallpaper sample from Homebase!
Hope you all have a great weekend and remember to wear your poppies with pride to remember those that gave their lives and fought for the freedom we have today.

Well I am having yet another late night as I got carried away making cards and watching my favourite film - Moulin Rouge! I made the card above last night and then the two below this evening...and yes I did cave in and have to use my Pink Petticoat trees as I love them so much!
The two cards above I made using papers from the DCWV Christmas Stack and the vellum quotes are from 12x12 sheets of vellum quotes I got from a local craft shop. I shall have to look tomorrow to see if I can see a brand on them - they are so sweet though and thought they went really well with these DCWV papers.
This card I made using DCWV Christmas stack with Pink Petticoat christmas trees coloured with pencil crayons and Glitz It Up glitter glue. I also cut the top of the front of the card off around the blue ring for some added unsual detail to the card.
Hope everyone is well and having fun crafting. Thanks for looking at my blog!

Dovecraft square card blank, DCWV paper from the Christmas stack, Bazzil Basics pink textured card (used the back of it as the front was too shimmery), Papermania Sparkly trim, Anita's peel offs coloured pink with Whispers permanent pen and I can not think for the life of me where the snowman stamp came from or what make it is but I embossed it using Ink It Up clear pigment ink and Heat It Up silver tinsel embossing powder with the Heat It Up tool and then coloured in with pencil crayons. I used the x-cut shape cutter to cut the rectangles with rounded corners.
I am not 100% about this card but it was good experimenting using something other than Pink Petticoat and using less traditional colours.
I shall try to make a few more tomorrow night hopefully.
Hope everyone is well and happily crafting away!
P.S. I just remembered that I did have some good news today - I told my friend about how I need to make a lot of cards ready to sell at work for charity and he told me that he wants to buy some off me and even upped my price!

I'm off to Halfords today as I need a brake light bulb for my car and so I have decided that I will have to go to the one that is about an extra 5 miles away from the other one as there is a Range next door to the one further away so I might have a little shopping spree! Will let you know what I get but I really hope they have the Creativity Life magazine in as I haven't managed to get one yet but it looks so good. Fingers crossed!
