Freebie Friday- Cute mouse digistamps part 2

Good evening everyone, its freebie Friday again!
I cant believe how quick its come around again! I hope you liked the freebie last week, if so you are in for a treat as this weeks freebie is the second part of the collection.
As usual you can download the freebie from my main site.

This week I have been busy with my latest toy! I have loads of silicone moulds which I normally use UTEE or modelling clay with to make my own embellishments but this time I have been using hot glue sticks with my hot glue gun to fill the moulds and they come out lovely!

These are some I made and then painted with pearl acrylic paints.

I went for a workshop yesterday with Cutting Edge crafts, we had a lovely afternoon with them in a lovely relaxed atmosphere with David being very patient and kind to my ladies, here is one of the cards we made which is a double dutch fold card.

We will definitely go for more workshops with David and I can recommend them to you. 

All for now, Tina x

Craft and chat club

Good evening Bloggers,
I hope you are all having a good week? 
Mine is better than last week as I am feeling so much better, I had a horrific cough for two weeks which with the help of antibiotics is starting to get better.
I was at Craft and Chat club last Saturday and made a couple of cards using a Sizzix Bigz die which cuts 1 panel and then you link however many you want together to make a concertina album. Here are the two I have made:

I hope you like them, personally I cant choose my favourite between them!

Freebie Friday

Hello everyone!
I am sorry for the lack of posts but it was my sons' 18th last Monday and so we travelled down to Sussex for a family get together to celebrate his birthday. I have been ill with a terrible cough which has been upsetting my asthma for the last 12 days and so haven't got much done lately. 
Today's freebie is a set of 4 cute mice digistamps, they are really sweet and I hope you like them! 
Hopefully I will start to feel better this week and get round to some card making.
Have a good week, see you soon, Tina x
P.S. As usual you will find the free stamps on my main site

Card making weekend.

Hello everyone, I hope you've had a good weekend and not floated away in the floods.
I have been away on a card making weekend in Leicester and had a brilliant time!
I thought you might like to see the cards I made while I was there.

The weekend will be held again in March next year, if you are interested and would like some info, please contact me.
All for now, Tina x

Freebie Friday

Hello everyone, I am early posting my freebie this week as I am going away tomorrow for the weekend. 
I am sorry but I have only had time to make the freebie without any samples.
The freebie this week is a beautiful Sweet-brier flower set, there are 2 corners and a bouquet. I try to put them on a sheet so that if you want to use the card as a base you can, which is why there is a corner each end. I have put the bouquets so that you can use your favourite dies to cut them out. I would love it if you emailed me any cards you have made from my freebies.
As usual, you will find the download on my main site.

All for now, Tina x

Freebie Friday sample

Hello again Bloggers!
I hope you have had a good weekend and the weather has been kind to you.
If you missed the free download on Friday, you can still get it by going to the link on Fridays' blog. I didn't get round to making a sample to show before the freebie went on but I have made it tonight.

I have made a very simple easel card by matting my backing paper onto lilac card and using one of the sentiments as my stopper. I used an oval die to cut my topper out and then matted onto a Cheery Lynn die cut oval in the same lilac card and added a bow.

You can always email me any cards you have made using my freebies or tutorials and I will put them on the blog with your permission.

What else have I been doing? I have been playing with some Marianne dies and made this single step pop up card.

I might not get a chance to make a freebie for this Friday as I am going on a cardmaking weekend from Friday until Sunday but I will try my best.
All for now, Tina x
