Golden Wedding Anniversary

So this card is not my normal style but needs must as they say. So it was time to dig into the stash of embossing folders that I tend to neglect and see what I could find. So after a bit of embossing and die cutting this is the end result and no oxide inks in sight!!
Ingredients used to make the card
Dies - Lawn Fawn 'Finley's abc', MFT 'blueprints 31', Spellbinders 'hearts' and Lawn Fawn 'scalloped stitchables'.
Embossing folders - Couture Creations 'tied together' and a Sizzix folder which is unnamed.
Gold Miri card
Gold glitter tape - American crafts 
Pearls - stash

Taunton craft show goodies

So today I went to the Taunton craft shop with my good friend Kelly to find some new craft goodies. The show sadly is getting smaller every year but I still found things to buy. I do most of my craft shopping online these days. I'm finding it hard going using blogger on my iPad without a app so hopefully I can add all the photos.

A bit more oxide inks play time

Well so here is another card using the Tim Holtz distress oxide inks. Also used the MFT Beautful Butterflies stamp set. Need to get back in the habit of noting what I have used to add to the blog post. But anyway enough of my waffling lol. Here is the finished card.


Well add I am enjoying blogging again and having a reference for my makes.

My love for Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks ❤️

Right thanks to the help of my friend Kelly whose fab blog is here I have sussed the mysteries of uploading photos to my blog. So hopefully you will be looking at some cards I have made combining my two recent craft loves which are the distress oxide inks and Concorde and 9th Turnabout stamps





















    Time to brush off the cobwebs!!!!!!

    Well been a long time since I have blogged, in fact not blogged since April 2016!!!
     But time to brush off cobwebs and start again as I have still been crafting.  I had been using since April 2013 a free app called Blogpress to blog for speed on my iPad but it stopped working and sadly I lost all my photos from that time up to February 2016 and there was no way of retrieving them. Luckily I had back ups of the ones of Sam ( my beloved dog) but not the others so unable to add back to blog.
    So anyway lesson learnt though it did put me off blogging for a long while. As my blog is a personal reference for me and my cards and projects I shall start adding them again Once I have figured out all the changes that blogger have made!!!

    Lost my photos :-(

    Hi all, thought I would do a quick post to say that the app I was using on my ipad Bloggerpress is no longer available and parked!! ( not sure if going to restart either ). This has meant that any photos I have posted using this ( which are a lot ) have now disappeared :-(
    And I am unable to upload most of them as have not saved them and to say I am cross is a understatement. This has put me off blogging sadly as the blogpress app was nice and quick to use. I hope to restart again once I can be sure any photos I add won't disappear again.
    Happy crafting
