Good evening, 
Is it right that I'm still having to put my heating on at the end of April ? I swear it's still January lol.

Enchanted forest...

Good morning, hope the sun is shining where you are. It is here and it makes you feel instantly better ! I'm spending the day in my craft room, lots of DT work to catch up on. 
So onto today's post , a simple card made using G45 Enchanted forest. My fortnightly make for the fabulous very generous Jones crafts. 
I love the rich colours in this and so apt as I'm currently up to season 5 of Game of thrones. 
Anyway here it is.......let me know what you think.

And a close up....

I added liquid pearls to some of the patterns. Plenty of shields cut out and added. A nice simple make.
Well I also want to say a huge thank you to all my new followers. Currently on 69 don't forget the big giveaway when I reach 75.....

More samples

Good evening or should that be good morning as it's almost 1am !! Can't seem to sleep.....so thought I would share some more of my TV samples using the fantastic new range of stamps & masks. These are designed by the fab Leonie Pujol. Hope you all got to watch on Hochanda. They were great shows and proved very popular. So here's another couple made. 

I debossed the masks on both of these samples. I wanted to use them in different ways to show how versatile they are. 
I would also like to say I'm thrilled with the support I have had and a big warm welcome to my new followers. Don't forget I'll be having a giveaway when I reach 75 but that seems to be taking forever lol. 
Thanks so much for visiting my little blog. 
Have a wonderful week xxx

Enchanted forest

Hello peeps ! 
How's everyone doing ? Well I've been super busy trying to find a part time job, settling in with college and a school placement. But still found time to do some craft..... And I'm so happy with my latest DT project for Jones crafts using the fabulous Enchanted forest by Graphic 45. 

The photos aren't the best but trust me in real life it looks better. I painted a bobbin that I got from crafty bunch and knew that enchanted forest was perfect for it. Plenty of fussy cutting ! I used a straw for the signpost. I do hope you like it as much as me. I love being on the Jones DT as I get to work with my favourite company week after week. 
Right of to watch some Game of thrones.
Take care, have a fab evening. Thanks for visiting me, I honestly do appreciate it.
Hugs Elaine xx
