About Me

Perth, Perthshire, United Kingdom
Welcome to my little corner of the World! I live in Perthshire Scotland with my wonderful husband Eric. We have a daughter, Corinne who is married to Rob and lives in New Zealand, with their boys Harrison and twins Hadley and Dylan. Marie who has a wee boy Jackson, and Greg and his wife Kim, their wee girl Freya, even smaller baby boy Freddie and dog Buddy. I am happy when I am in my craft room, and I love making cards for Charity and also for commissions. I love scrapbooking, and I get my inspiration from my Grandchildren. They are the subjects in most of my Scrapbooking layouts. I have just started to do Mixed Media work, and I am loving it!! I have just started a craft group at our local Church centre, aptly called Saints and Scissors Club! If you can't find me, I will be in my craft room, buried under tons of stash lol!

Bobbin Fairy Clean and Simple

Hello from a dull and dreary Perthshire.  Where has the sun gone?  All the bulbs are coming up in the garden, so we know for sure that Spring is on the way!!

I've been busy making cards, and I want to show you this one I made using an image from
he is called Bobbin Fairy

I love Mo's fairies, they all look so cute and cheeky!  

This is a CAS (clean and simple) card, and I love the way it has turned out.
I printed the image on white card and coloured him with Promarkers.
I put some glitter on his wings, and added a button onto his strap.
  I then mounted the white card onto red card, to draw attention to the red thread etc.  
I took an 8" x 8" scalloped card and covered with some chevron striped paper, which was free from one of the many magazines I subscribe to.
The red card was then stuck onto the patterned paper.
I computer generated a sentiment 
Mum you are so amazing!!
and then cut it out using a Spellbinder scalloped heart die.
I placed this on the corner of the card.
I threaded some Bakers Twine through a red button, tied it in a bow and stuck it to the corner of the card just above the sentiment.

Papers were free from a magazine
Heart sentiment cut from Spellbinder Heart Die
Button and Baker's Twine from stash
