Mr Jeremy Fisher!

Hello all hope you are all ok, I thought this week would be better , but no where has it gone, I had loads planned and I don't seem to have done any of it.

I would like to share with you my Husbands Birthday card I made for him last week, it's Beatrix Potter's Jeremy Fisher, Rob loves fishing so this was perfect.

I printed the backing paper, co-ordinated paper and decoupage from the CD, the frame I cut out with my Silhouette.
 Have a lovely weekend and thank you for stopping by.

O my blooming Giddy Aunt!
I cannot wait to let you all know that something big is happening with our Morehead Pick of the Week, which is due to launch on Friday 27th at noon as usual...... well, everyone here at Crafter's Companion and Create and Craft know it's going to be so unbelievably popular, that we are doing two bonus preview shows on the Thursday Night! I know can you believe it! - this has never happened before to my knowledge so It's absolutely amazing.  It means I need to get my bottom in gear and head off to the studios earlier than usual, but who cares when it's for something as absolutely awesome as this!
So tune in to Create and Craft at 6pm and 8pm on Thursday and you will see moi with the POTW, so you can get yours before the POTW rush at 12 noon on the Friday.
Be warned, this is a massive deal having Morehead on a CD for the first ever time, it has taken me almost three years to secure this range digitally for you, then we have exclusive access to the stamps, the decoupage kits and some fabulous Hunkdory stuff too!
It will fly out and never in a million years last the week......just giving you the heads up!
To celebrate, I am going to run a competition here on my blog, so all you have to do is leave me a comment on this post, letting me know what you think of the Morehead range, and then advertise this post on your blog if you have one (i'll be checking) or facebook/twitter if you don't - on Thursday at 12 noon before I head off  to the studio's I'll draw a winner, you will win the double disc CD and also both the Hunkydory kits that we launch on the Thursday Night.  I am even going to throw in a tub of the best glue in the world (Collall all purpose for those who don't know what I am talking about).
I finished colouring this little guy tonight who I LOVE - actually I love all the stamps!
Jennie won with her colour suggestion for his trousers and shirt and I am actually really thrilled with the results, hope you like him too.  I have started another one  this evening so I will be sharing that with you tomorrow when the light is better and I can photograph her.  I think I may photograph him again tomorrow and update this image, as the light just not good enough for you to get a real feel for the depth of colour.
So just so you don't miss out show time are:
Thursday 26th - 6pm and 8pm (Pick of the week preview!)
Friday 27th - 12 noon POTW launch
Friday 27th - 3pm
Friday 27th - 5pm
Saturday 28th - 8am
Saturday 28th - 1pm
Saturday 28th -- 5pm
Sunday 29th - 4pm
Sunday 29th - 6pm
Monday 30th - 2pm
Monday 30th - 6pm
There will be shows on the Tuesday Thursday and Friday - if there is any left - there won't be! so don't hang around or we'll have another Mulberry Wood situation where there are lots of disappointed peeps out there :)
I really am absolutely blooming excited
See you Thursday - pass on the message........and be in with a chance of winning this fabulous prize

Hello Everyone

I am so sorry I haven't been around much, I don't really know what has happened this last two weeks, I have had a mountain of cards to make that I didn't think I would make in time, but I did thank goodness I do seem to work better when I am under pressure which is good I suppose.

I thought I would share with you the card I made for Rob for our 35th Wedding Anniversary last week.
He loves Humphrey so I had to do a Humphrey didn't I, and he loved it.
I used my Cd to print off the backing papers, and decoupage that I got from Crafters Companion.
I cut out a doily on my Silhouette to go around the image it's called Moroccan hearts and I heat embossed the sentiments, I love watching it as it turns very fascinating

I promise I will be around more I have done the bulk of my cards so hopefully it will know be a little easier.
Anyway here is my card

Thank you for stopping by.
