How much fun did I have making my sleigh.   I used The Frosted Winter collection - I used the pre coloured sleigh to start and cut several times so it would be sturdy. I also cut a plain base using kraft card to start.And then made a center piece to join them together (this was the hardest bit as I kept cutting the wrong size) I decorated the sleigh with flowers, sprigs ,garland  robin , presents etc a…

I have had this idea in mind for some time , but it was actually thinking would it really work after some ermmmming and arggghiiing yesterday I decided to go for it The fish tank and little lighthouse were cut on my portrait. The lighthouse was the most fiddliest ever to put together standing at just 4inches tall from base to top of flag!! but its awww so cute, and well worth the effort.

 The Fish tank stands at approx 6x8 inches depth 4 inches - I wish in hindsight I would have made it slightly bigger so I could cram in a few more bits. I covered the front in acetate to make a little more realistic as a tank.

The mermaid and all the little animals , boat and treasure chest are all from the Bonbon Belle  Collection all pre- co…

Happy Autumn

Autumn my favourite time of the year I love the colours and seeing all the trees and leaves change , my pear tree at the moment is a lovely shade of orangey reds just so pretty. When I saw this new collection it just screamed out to me It is the Polkadoodles new Autumn/Fall digital download collection  such great value!! £2.25 for the coloured version that I used OMG! Check it out here I loved playing and making up my card the hardest part was deciding what to use as there are so many goodies on there, I love, love, love the conker but I really could not squeeze anything else on there.











I started by making a card blank using the buff smooth card from Papermill direct I used backing papers from Dollie Daydream Goes East collection
















Everything else used is from the Autumn/Fall download Some bits were glued and some were stuck with foam to give some depth So there you go  Happy Autumn Everyone! xx
