Something different I saw

I was looking at different blogs and I came upon a lovely card that had a topper that was embossed and glittered. I had a stamp from Lavinia stamps so I tried that instead. I inked it with versamark and used a sparkly embossing powder. I then cut out the image with a nestability die. Paper is from 'The wobblers'. I made the card in two different colour ways.
Hope you like them.

Hooray I have reached GOLD!!!

At last I have reached gold membership with crafters companion. Thank goodness for their birthday celebrations this week and double points. I don't think I would have made it otherwise. I now receive 15% discount and next day delivery. I have ordered their glue gel which is 3 for 2 this birthday week, so with my discount only £8.50 for 3 tubes. I may even order more before Sunday. You also receive a free popcorn bear stamp with every order placed this week too. I am waiting for the new swalk set which will be released on Friday can't wait for that.
Home late on Saturday as I will be stopping of at Dunfermline go visit my friend Sheila. She has managed to get me cricut country life, so another one to add to my collection and load onto my gypsy.
Good news for gypsy owners too cricut are releasing a download on 1st November which gives you 6 free carts. I already have 2 of them.
Been stamping and colouring while I have been away preparing things for my classes.
I have lots of craft items waiting for me at my mums when I get home. Being on holiday doesn't stop you buying I'm afraid. That's the downside of an iPhone or laptop on holiday. I have asked mum to take everything out of the packaging and put it in a bag so it doesn't look to much if tubby sees it!!!
Bye for now......

Beading project

I went to a bead stringing class in Haddington this afternoon. This is the necklace I made. I will probably keep it as a christmas gift for someone. I also bought some beads to make some cute bookmarks. Will post these later.

On Holiday

I apologise for not having been posting lately. I have not been well, came home from work on Tuesday and went to the doctor as I just felt awful. Have been feeling under the weather for the last 3 weeks. Was signed off the rest of last week with Viral Gastroenteritis. I am only now managing to eat normally! Still don't feel 100% with a thick throat and slight cough. Can't believe I have had so many things lately.
I am currently on holiday (schools off for 2 weeks) in the Scottish Borders at a place called Cockburnspath. It is a lovely cottage we are staying in situated on a farm. This is our 4th visit to this cottage it is like a home from home. Just love it.
Will try and upload something while I am here as I did take some crafting stuff with me to do.
I have bought several things from Create and Craft over the last couple of days..... Serif Scrapbook Artist 2 multibuy and several Clarity stamps which were on on Sunday. I will have lots of parcels waiting when I get home.
There's another pick of the day tomorrow so hope it's not something I NEED as I have spent enough lately.
Bye for now.......

Jayne Nestorenko Adorables Cd sample

Had a go at one of the projects on the new cd from Jayne Nestorenko 'Cute Companions Adorables' available from Crafters Companion. It was one of the frame card projects. The frame was easy to assemble but the instructions said you needed the medium decoupage. After printing off the medium and finding it was too small I then had to print another sheet at A4 size. Will use the medium decoupage sheet for another project, can't let it go to waste!! The rabbit was part of the decoupage sheet. I added my own flower and ribbon. The project was actually made as a christmas card but I didn't put that greeting on as it works well as an everyday card.
I also made a box to put it in. Hope you like it.
