Challenge ~82~ Nutcrafters

Good Morning

It is my turn to host the challenge at Nutcrafters this fortnight...I have chosen the theme of 
"All That Glitters"

I have used some lovely glittered DCWV papers and then used my glamour dust on the necklace and bracelet.

I love this little image as I'm sure all little girls have played dressing up at some time....wonder if my little grand-daughter will want to dress up in Nannie's shoes LOL 

Look forward to seeing your creations over HERE

A very special Delivery

Here is my 2nd share of the day with you... my beautiful little grand-daughter
Macie Victoria Woolley
Born 18th October 2014
Weighing 6lb 11oz

I am one very very proud Nannie....

My little munchkin, had a bit of an infection when she was born so spent the 1st 10 days of her life in hospital, but now she is safely home with her mummy and daddy.  She is so beautiful and such a happy little soul, I love spoiling her already and she has made me very very happy.

Well thats me updated and hopefully, I am now more organised so there will be lots more regular posts .

Love and hugs

Flippin Heck !!!

Oh heck!!! Where did the time seems to have got in the way of my bloggin for a while..lots going off in the Twells household.  Work and no play makes me sad, but I have just changed my hours at work, so longer days followed by a 3 day weekend.. so not all bad...This has just meant I have not really had chance to keep up with blogging and anything else as I am so pooped when I get in at night and well my weekends are just so full of good times.

Anyhoo, I am back now to share with you 2 things...the 1st being my latest DT project for Nutcrafters...
"Anything but a card"

My friend gave me a template she had received in duplicate from Crafter's Companion for a little treat box..perfect timing I thought for this week's challenge...

I have used one of the "Stocking Filler" images and paper pieced the stocking then added lots of glitter to my little snowman....

If this week you have created something other than a card, do come and share with us at Nutcrafters, it would be lovely to see your creations.

Of course we have prizes up for grabs too ....

To see the 2nd thing I would like to share with you, keep watching my posts....

Love and hugs til later

Good Afternoon - what 2 posts in less than a

This time i am sharing my DT card from Nutcrafters - our challenge this fortnight is "Celebrations"

I adore this super cute image and thought it was perfect for an engagement card.

Coloured with promarkers, freebie backing paper, sentiments and ribbons from stash.  Again i used the bowmaker to make my little bow...perfect every time...

Enjoy your day and if you get chance do pop over to Nutcrafters and share your crafty makes with us...

Anniversary Card

Good afternoon from sunny (at the minute) Derbyshire.  Thought i would share a card I made yesterday for my hubby for our Anniversary on 1st September.  We will have been married for 35 years !!! not sure where the time has gone, as with most couples we have had our ups and downs and trials and tribulations but I wouldn't have changed a thing....

Not sure what the embossing folder is called as i bought the embossed card sheets from a cyber friend.  The hearts are one of my new dies from Memory box - it cuts like a dream.  Ribbon from stash - the bow was made using the tattered lace bow-maker - absolutely fab invention...

Right off to see if my washing is dry and then to get the ironing board out !!!

Happy Sunday..

I'm back...

Back from our hols in Yorkshire and we had a fab time - 16 days of sunshine and one afternoon of rain..not bad for sunny Yorkshire.

Right then here we have my DT card for Nutcrafters, sorry if any of you have had problems loading your projects - poor Katie came back from her hols with jetlag and had to start sorting the website out.  Anyhoo, all is looking good again so do please come and say hi to us.

We have the very popular Anything Goes as our theme this week

I used my bowmaker from tattered lace...perfect bows every time !!!

Looking forward to seeing your creations.

Love and hugs

Christmas in July...

No it's not snowing here in Derbyshire and I haven't gone mad - well not much anyway....

This is our challenge over at Nutcrafters - the theme has been chosen by my lovely friend Jo and is she so rightly says "You can never start too early with your Christmas Cards".

So come on those of you who have the urge to make some early Christmas cards, do come and share them with us at Nutcrafters.

Now for things much closer in time... I am off to Summer Crafting this weekend.

I am going to the workshop on Friday and am sooooo looking forward to it, then on Saturday we are off to the craft show..I only went to stamp magic a few weeks ago but still have a long list of goodies I NEED!!! lol

Have a fab weekend whatever your plans (especially if it involves crafting)
