Another masterpiece from Jean

We had a "Swanley Scissor Sisters" craft day yesterday, and I spied this wonderful creation in Jeans craft room. What a fabulous idea to weave the ribbons through the die cut border, and I love the lattice effect she has created in the centre panel.  The black edging is also a lovely effect, don't you think.  I wanted to learn how to make those silk roses, but we ran out of time, as usual there are never enough hours in the day!!!!

One from me!

Had to make this quick card last night and thought you might like to see it.  I made the flower using that thick, knobbly "hand made"paper, sprayed with water, scrunched it up then sprayed again with Cosmic Shimmer Lava Red.  I coloured the hatpin with Alcohol inks to match.  Dont you just love this elegant image??

More Birthday Cards

As promised, here are some more of the beautiful cards I got last week.

Here is Laurie's

and the next is Vicky's

Joan made me this lovely Book Card - this is the front cover

and this is the inside

and the back cover

Last, but by no means least, Trudys lovely Birdcage Easel card - it has four little match box drawers in the base, stuffed full of buttons and lovely metal embellishments!

Those are the cards, now for something else very special  -  each of the girls made a decorated initial of my name, which Jean then turned into this fabulous concertina card:

Jean also made the front page:

and Jean also decorated this fabulous box, which it came in:

Told you I was thoroughly spoiled!!!!

Recent Birthday

I recently celebrated a significant milestone birthday and the little craft group I belong to, affectionately known as "The Swanley Scissor Sisters" gave me a lovely celebration lunch at our last meeting, where they presented me with some lovely  gifts and fabulous cards.  Here are some of them.  This first one is from Jean, our Hotess with the Mostest!!!!

  And the next one is from Jenny

If  these upload Ok, I will show you the rest tomorrow.  Thanks for looking


After resolutely vowing to remain blogless, I have finally relented!!  BUT, I will not be posting on here everyday  and I will not be sharing every happening of every day in my life either!!

The intention of my blog is to have a place where I can show some of the wonderful crafty creations of some of my fiends who are not "computer - ised"!!  From time to time, I may add in something of my own, if I think it is of interest.

Once I have learned how to upload pictures, I will be back!!
