Kaboodle Doodle at the Fifth

This week it is challenge number five at Kaboodle Doodle – can you believe it? There are some scrummy free papers to download and use in your creation for this week's challenge and here is what I did with them. A friend of mine wants a jewellery box for her birthday and I've been shopping around but they aren't very nice so…


The Month of Ramadan

Ramadan is nearly at an end. The Festival of Breaking the Fast, Eid-ul-Fitr, is next week and many families will be celebrating with prayer, food and gifts.

Kaboodle Doodle Goes Fourth

So the fourth Kaboodle Doodle challenge got my brain really whirling this week. It is all about using something not traditionally associated with crafting in your project. What fun. It is harder than you would think; lots of things have been 'adopted' by crafting already! Well, have a look at my card – can you guess what I used (the answer is…


Sewing Pot Holders

So what do you think? Do you think that everyone would like to have a pot holder for Chrimbo? :)Not a card today but some sewing. Really must get some more sewing done.

A Wedding Card

A card for a wedding today, using the lovely Blossom Berry Bright kit from Kaboodle Doodle – I love this kit – and a stamp from Elzybells Art Stamp. This one uses the fab sketch from this week's Friday Sketchers. You can't see it too well in the photo but I used co-ordinating glitter on the dress, flowers, hat, waistcoat and cravat.…


Autumn falls and a missed challenge

Oh bless me. I am, as my friends would say, being special :) I looked at the Papertake Challenge on Monday (yesterday) and saw that it had an autumn theme and went off and made this card using the Tweet Kit from Designs by Krista and my favourite stamp at the moment which is from Whiff of Joy. Only to go back…


Tearing Thanks

Having enjoyed tearing up for the Kaboodle Doodle Challenge this week, I carried on tearing. Here is a thank you card using Designs By Krista's Bewitching kit. I absolutely adore this kit. I love the turquoise and ruby together with the black - yummy. Think you will be seeing some more of this kit. Anyway, the card isn't for any particular challenge,…
