A Rose for Millie...

Evening all...
A last card with WRS Millie and pot.

Coloured with PM's and some added sparkle on her hat and scarf.

I love these red Flowers..I bought one stem for £2.49 and got about 50 flowers off it. I took the plastic centre out and replaced it with a nice shiny button.

So beautiful!!!
How about some challenges?
1. Sew many cards...Red and Green
2. Just us girls..3D holiday element
3. One stop Craft...Xmas Cuties

I'm really busy at school...doing Christmas decorations and display boards...We are learning about the Victorians so Christmas is based around them...I have the children making gold birds and butterflies to hang from the ceiling!
Oh... and I started some Christmas shopping.
Be back join me!

Hello there...
I haven't managed to do 'Whats on your workdesk Wednesday' for a few weeks but this week I just happened to have these on my cutting mat so I hope you think they are kinda nice to look at. The last few weeks it has just looked a right old mess..

They are made with a medium size daisy punch and I punched out 3 for each flower and used a button in the centre....

Here is one card they went on...quite simple but I think with four on a card you don't really need much else...More cards with them on coming up soon as I can photograph them.
Hope you can come back again...There is something nice involving Wild Rose Studio happening????

Millie in Red!.

Hope you're all having a nice Saturday. I'm doing a bit of this and a touch of that!
Some housework, some crafting, some tv watching.
My christmas card production is still very slow. I'm going to have to think of some simple designs and set up a production them all at once! Anyway here's Wild Rose Studios Millie again.

Some nice traditional reds and greens.... Millies coat is glittered up and the floral co-ordinating papers all WRS as well.

Coloured with promarkers and I added a red tag and with some organza ribbon and red buttons...

This card followed these challenges...

Poppies for Rememberance.

Hello there!
Hope you are all having a lovely day of Rememberance. This morning at 11 am the whole school met in the hall to watch the BBC News and join in with the 2 minutes silence then listened to year 6 children read out some very moving poems.
My card today was made for my step-mothers birthday so she should have received it today.....

I layered up 3 punched flowers for each poppy and used some black buttons for the centres...
I thought it would look good as an easel card. The black and white paper is DCWV and I just added a couple of butterflies.

Apologies for the poor light conditions...I photographed it by the back door at 7.45
in the morning.
Just a couple of challenges...
Little Red Wagon...Do it in 3's.
Lexis creations...Anything goes
Another rainy blustery day here...but the sun has just come out...
Thanks for

Lovely Gingham ribbon bow to finish with a red message tag!
The challenges...
I love promarkers...Snowflakes

I have just stamped some new christmas fairy images from out for them soon, they are so pretty!
Well, the weather has really turned now. I only just managed to squeeze my little KA around a fallen tree on the way to work this morning and many roadwork cones and barricades were rolling around in the wind and rain.
Stay safe in the gales....
