A book on scrapbooking

Hi everybody - I'm afraid I have no card today as I have had the decorator in and have been very busy - however my friend Elizabeth whom a lot of you will know as the Silver Scrapper  ( has a lovely giveaway.  Elizabeth is a scrapbooker and is offering one of her books on the subject as a candy - all you have to do is add your name and mention this on your blog.  This is the book she is offering

A wonderful win for anyone interested in scrapbooking.  I have already left her a comment and have my fingers crossed.
I hope none of you are suffering because of this foul weather.

Good afternoon everybody.  Its been a bright but cold day here but at least it is dry and we have not had any of the snow which is affecting so many.  My card today is a commission and is for a little girl for her birthday.  Normally I do not "do" colouring but my normal die cards would not have been right for this occasion.  I have the stamp so long that I do not know which one it is. The paper is digi paper   from Pink Petticoat and the die is Spellbinders and all of this is mounted on to Centura Pearl cardstock.

Thank you for taking a look and for all the lovely comments that you so regularly leave.

CASE'd cards

Hi everybody from a very cold Northern Ireland.  It is bright and dry but very windy and cold.  Both of my cards today are taken from ideas  I have seen on other blogs.  I liked the ides so much that I wanted to make a version of them.  The first card is from the desk of the wonderful Linda Duke  (  Those of you who are not familiar with her work should take a look at her blog - she makes the most beautiful cards.  I also have to thank my good friend Jeannie for the loan of the Poppy Die.  This is my version of Linda's card.

My second card is taken from the desk of the equally marvellous Bekka Feeken  (  again Bekka's blog is well worth a visit.  This is my version of her card.

Thank you for visiting today and taking a look.
