A little card to share using some dies and stamps from PTI - can you tell yet that I love PTI!

They are just the cutest little stamps and matching dies.  This card is destined for my friend in Abu Dhabi who I miss loads.

Have a great one.

I've finished my chicken that I mentioned a while ago and wanted to share her with you.

I am struggling to find a terracotta colour linen fabric so used what I had for the comb, beak, legs etc and just inked them up a little for definition.

This one has a new home to go to which is great.  More to come, keep checking!

I've used a variety of images for this card.  The bird and the background lettering are Marion Emerson and the sentiment is PTI, as are the keys that I've die cut.  I've had a another try at using distress inks too.

Its a bit blotchy but still, I quite like it.  I bit more dimension next time I think though.

Off shopping now, the nice kind too!  Thanks for popping in.

Back to the sewing machine for this post. I adore this pattern from Tone Finnager, Super Cute don't you think.

 I've been making quite few things recently and my office space is filling up fast.  I need to find new homes for them so I'm going to try my hand at selling them on eBay over the next few weeks.  I've had orders for these and some teddies, pigs and chickens from people at work which is fab so hopefully they'll sell so I can make some more!


Working on some chickens now, will share when finished!.

Finally got on line and uploaded some pics today, only took 17 minutes to upload these three!  I purchased some new stamps recently and this is the first chance to try them out.  They are from PTI.  I apologise for the quality of the pictures, the weather is terrible today and its so dark outside.

A few close ups...


Hope you're having a great day, nearly the weekend folks!

Its been a long while I know, but I have not had much chance to do anything worthy of a post recently.  My new job is pretty full one at the moment, a lot of new stuff to learn plus my internet is driving me totally nuts!  Its sooooo slow and takes an age to upload anything.  We live in one of many 'forgotten' areas where an ad on the TV banging on about BT Super Fast Fibre Optic Broadband makes you want to throw something at the telly - we can't even get basic, stable broadband let alone superfast fibre optic!

Anyhoo, I hope to be able to get something uploaded soon to share with you.  Please bear with me - I'll be back soon!!
