Lil' old Me

West Midlands, United Kingdom
I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

A card and a bracelet

 This card fits 3 challenges:-

  1. Charisma Cards #41 - Clean and simple
  2. Cute Card Thursday #239 - Got Glitter
  3. Lili's Little Fairies - Anything Goes
I printed new papers, Small Nordic Snowflakes in Crimson from PINK PETTICOAT onto Centura Pearl card from CRAFTERS COMPANION.  Matted onto burgundy card sprayed with Pink Spray n Sparkle from CRAFTERS COMPANION  Used topper from LILI OF THE VALLEY from last years James Cute Squares which I cut with circle nesties and scallop circle nestie on my new Ebosser from CRAFTERS COMPANION - IT'S AMAZING!!!!!
Sentiment also from PINK PETTICOAT and cut with Word window punch and used Modern label punch from STAMPIN UP.
 


This bracelet is made using Preciosa Twin beads in black and clear from SPELLBOUND.  I made the pattern in circles and then stepping up and adding alternating colours to make a rope pattern.  Really pleased with how it has turned out as was just an experiment.

I added size 11 seed beads to add a magnetic clasp to the ends.
