Morning All

So here we are at the start of another week. I am looking forward to the week ahead as I have a few new techniques I want to try out, I am not 100% sure what it is that I want to do  but I am feeling very crafty at the moment and I have a hankering to learn something new. I will let you know how things turn out next time I post. It has been another quiet week (no surprises there then), but the week finished on a high with another trip to Eagle, a village outside Lincoln where I go to a craft club every month.
As I am sure you are all enjoying the weather I have to admit I can't stand it, I have never been a sun lover as I much prefer the cold. My reasons for this are; at least when you are cold you can warm yourself up but when you are too hot there is nothing you can do to cool down, also I hate feeling all clammy and irritable and I hate how it affects other people, good humour seem to go right out of the window.
On to this weeks card and thanks to Sue Wilson for her inspiration . Having layered up white card on red I then used 2 SB Die D-Lites, the ornate gate (with the gates removed) and the ornate heart. I then pricked around the edges using my Tim Holtz ruler and added Cosmic Shimmer glue dots. I finished the card off with some red organza ribbon and a Dazzler.
Hope you like the card and I will be back again soon,

This weeks card

Hi all, well it has been another quiet week in the Llewelyn-Brinsley house. I have been doing a lot of crafting though, I have almost finished a cardigan I am knitting for myself and I actually picked up my cross stitch this week for the first time in ages. I am also crocheting a blanket for our bed which is coming on really nicely.
Anyway, on to this weeks card. I have used a sheet of dotted swiss card for the background on to which I have put a strip of black with white on top which has been pricked with a parchment tool to make the holes. I then put a strip of double sided tape down the middle and covered it with micro beads. I then used the grand deckle oval Nestie and put a sentiment on to finish it off. It is then finished with a ribbon, some hat pins and a dazzler.
Hope you like it, have a good week,
 take care

This weeks offering

Hi all, hope you have had a good week.
Things have been a bit quiet here really, I finished last week off with our monthly 'Craft and Chat' club. We take turns to demonstrate a different project each month (except me, I'm just not confident enough to stand up in front of a crowd, no matter how small!!), this months demo (thanks to June) was Zentangle, I have tried it before but not for ages and while I like the affect, I don't really think it is for me.
So on to this weeks card and I have made it using an embossing folder for the background, then a fancy labels die from Spellbinders and it is finished off with a lovely sentiment stamp and some ribbon.
Well that's all from me at the moment,
hope you have a lovely week and that the weather is good to you,
take care,
lots o' love,
