2 Cards.

My wrist is feeling much better, the bruises have started to show, but i was still able to make some cards.
The first was one i made yesterday. Now i know it's a crimbo card, but after 3 hours of Early Bird Christmas Crafting on QVC, i was really in the mood.
So i dug out my christmas stamps! I actually have 4: 2 Rachel Ann Miller, 1 Penny Black and a magnolia ( Tilda and Edwin skating on ice.)
But i just had to use the little mouse... he was calling.


Rachel Ann Miller stamp watercoloured with whisper pens.
DCWV and PM papers.
Flower punch and PM brads.
Anita's everyday organza ribbon.

The inside was just scraps from the front, a sentiment, and another flower.

Card Number 2

This was made for an order, ( i think i told you about it in a earlier post.) and i had no idea what to do as i have no wedding stamps.
So i went to Hobby Craft today, and purchased a pack of beautiful handmade stickers.
I really love them... the detail is fantastic.

Close Up.


PM papers.
3d handmade embellishments.
Sentiment printed of the computer.
Flatbacked gems and flower peeloffs.

Well i hope you like.

I'm Back!!!!!

Well i'm back.
I haven't been around as i have been on holiday in Demark.
It was a aschool trip and i travelled on a fery across the North Sea.
The journey was 23 hours altogether... so i'mn eguasted.
On the way back i shut my wrist in one of the heavy doors on the ferry leading onto the deck
The nurse thought i'd broken it...but when i saw the doctor and had an x-ray, he told me it was only a sprain and soft tissue bruising.

In conclusion. i won't be able to make any more cards for a while.
I have only just managed to bloghop with my left hand!

Before i go i have recieved this award from my lovely friend Georgia.
Please take a look at her blog- her cards are gorgeous!

Thanks so much for thinking of me.

I am going to pass this on to:

Bev, Amanda, Jacqui, Tara and Sem.

Simple Acceptance.

The Inside:

I have had an order yesterday for a Wedding Acceptance.
I don't have any stamps or images for a Wedding... so i was a bit stuck..
( I will also have to make a wedding card so ifr any one has any ideas or can recommend any products i would be extremely grateful. )
I thought i should keep it quite simple, and use my K+Co papers.
I love all the blues, greens and pinks, so i combinec them witha sentiment from the computer, and a few flowers.
Gems, feather and MSBP just finished it off.
I am quite happy with it, but the wedding card must be much more elegant!
Well i need my sleep.
Thanks for stopping by.. all comments welcome! :O)

Green Fairy

Hi Guys,
It's such a lovely afternoon.
Yesterday i had a fab time with my nan.
She took me to Garden Land, to buy some more stash.
There was a demo with a lovely ladie called Lynda. ( sorry if i've spelt it wrong.)
I ended up buying: The latest creativity mag, ( Amanda had some of her fab cards puplished! Congrats) Three Water Brushes, ( these are just great, so much easier than a paintbrush) A silver sakura gelly roll pen, and a pack of PM fairy stamps.

So here is a very simple card. Not sure whether i'm happy with it though.

Dovecraft Corner Rounder
PM Fairy stamp coloured with whispers and sukura silver roll pen on wings.
PM stamp: Just For You, free with magazine.
A variety of punched flowers
PM papers, brads and gems.
Scraps of K+ co paper

A Close- Up:

Well that's all from me today... no challenges!
Thankyou for all your wonderful comments, all are much appreciated.
Love Fern xx

Morning all!
I was just reading some of your fabulous comments today, when i came across Irina's.
I popped over to her blog to find these amazing awards:

Thankyou so much!!!
So these are the rules:

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their award."

I can't believe i have to pick 8. The decision is too hard.
The 8 i've chosen are:

Kim Piggot- Kims blog is a constant inspiration, and i always admire her fantastic creations.

Tab- I really love Tabs style... her cards and clever gifts are so clever, and i enjoy visiting her blog.

Liza- I have only recently found Liza's blog. But her cards are always fantastic.

Lyndsey- I know Lyndsey from my local craft shop, and she helped me create my blog. I appreciate the support. Thankyou.

Deb- Deb's cards are just fabulous. The way she takes the time to cut out and layer her images

Zoe- Zoe's my friend in blogland, and i can't believe she's only eight!! Her cards are beautiful.

Katie- Katie's 11 years old, and she's just entered blogland. Her cards just keep getting better and better.

Olivia- Olivia is 9, and like Katie she has only just started her blog.

Well, that's all eight!
I may be back for a card later, as i had a sucsessful shopping spree yesterday!!
