Fleabag & other animals

Well today I decided I had better make a card for my friend as her birthday is on Friday. So I pulled out my Pollyanna Pickering's wildlife dvd rom which I am so loving at the moment. 
I loved the story about fleabag and thought he look extra cute I do love hedgehogs. I made the card into 6x6 using centura pearl card. On the front I used black card as a mat and used the t-bag topper of fleabag and teabag folded the tbag papers, and I added a blue pearl and added gold peel offs.

On the inside I cut gold mirri card and used seasonal music 8x8 embossilicious folder and cut it down to size, then I added a fleabag backing paper. 

On the other side I made it look like an envelope and tag again I used centura pearl card mirri card again using the embossing folder and using the 5" insert which was on the dvd rom and added the verse which was free from a website. And to finish off I used peel offs to finish. 

I made this card using the lacy card, the topper and backing sheet is from Magical Christmas moments, and the alphabets is from the papercrafting companions cd rom which are available from creative crafting world. I matted using black card, and also gold mirri card. I added acetate and hung a gold star from it. And I also added a red bow.

Well today I managed to make a card even after having severe toothache thankfully I am at the dentist tomorrow. 
I am so loving the Pollyanna Pickering's wildlife dvd rom from creative crafting. 
I have used black card for matting, the backing paper, t-bag paper and topper is from the dvd. 
And the white card is called lacy cards and I actually love it. 
I also added a dark blue ribbon with a bit of silver in the middle and a dark blue pearl.

Christmas in August

Well after watching Leann Chivers doing the 4DD on create and craft this week and enjoying the demonstrations that she was doing, I thought I would have a play.
Luckily for me I already had some of the items shown on create and craft.

Snow White pearlised card.
Pastel blue pearlised card.
Christmas Elegance embossilicious folder.
Snowflake die'sire die.
Scalloped tags die'sire die.
Christmas magic Christmas time sentimentals rubber stamp.
Tim Holtz stormy sky distress ink pad.

Animal magic

Well When Lynda chapman was on Create & Craft with Pollyanna Pickering and I saw the artwork I just had to order it. 

The 1st card I made was a 7x10 inch card and I used black card to mat and layer with. I used the backing paper, image & tea bag tiles from the cd rom. I was pleased with the out come of the teabag folding as I have not done it for a while. I added black ribbon, and turquoise pearls.
The 2nd one I have made was a stationary set which had notelets and envelopes which were on the cd rom. I used black card for mat and layering. I think Lynda Chapman has influenced me on the black card. 
I used the teabag topper from the cd rom and the teabag tiles, and the backing paper is from the cd as well. I also used yellow ribbon and black gemstones to bling it up. 
The cd rom is called Pollyanna Pickering's British Wildlife and is available to order from
