A Long Time Coming... with LOTV Fairy Catkins

Hi everyone, Im so sorry its been sooo long since my last post on here. Ive not been keeping very well at all and just totally lost my mojo. My poor stash has been left totally neglected apart from the odd time i pulled it all out to see if my mojo might come out with it! lol

Anyway the other night after having a look at Lili of the Valleys Simply Print products i thought what a brilliant way to get back into my card making without the pressue of colouring up images so i bought a few of these cuties.

This one is called Fairy Catkins which was bought from here at LOTV

I used my Teresa Collins 12x12 Everyday Moments papers, Spellbinders dies, Marianne Design Dies, Memory box butterfly dies and a swirl cut from my silhouette portrait. (off which im having to get the hang of again as the software updates are so different from before!!) 
Also used some Lace, ribbon, a flower and gems from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by and i hope to get back to posting regularly again. 

I thought id enter a few challenges too..

(Its so lovely to see these challenge blogs still up and running after all my time away!)

Have a fab weekend everyone!

Crafty Calendar Challenge - Whats New!?

Hi everyone,

I hope you all had a fab Christmas and New Year!
I am sorry i have not been around but i have not been keeping very well and haven't been able to do much crafting. On a plus i have found a craft that i can do while relaxing...needle felting/felting!
I must admit that there is something very therapeutic about stabbing wool with a needle!!

Today is the start of the first Crafty Calendar Challenge of the year and the theme is "Whats New?" so have used my new found craft to make this little pillow for the challenge.  

This pillow had not been all needle felted but the flowers were put together using the technique.
I used a blanket stitch and added a bead to every other stitch to give the beaded edge and used large pearl buttons for the flower centres.

Here is closer view of the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by and i hope you can find time to join in with us at Crafty Calendar Challenge. We are also having a DT call if your interested..details on the challenge blog!

Have a great week ahead!
