Happy Birthday Freya and a bit of upcycling

Hi there, gosh, two posts in a week, I'm on a roll lol.

First I'd like to share a card I made yesterday with an older Tilda stamp, so old I'm not actually sure what she's called, my bad.  I've coloured her with distress inks and added a little bit of frantage around her and stardust stickles on her pinny and the flower.  The sentiment was computer generated.
The card is for a friend of my daughter.  She's called Freya but everyone calls her Frezpot, so a nice bit of personalisation for her.  I know she loves blue so I made sure that was the more prominent colour.  Everything is from my stash which I'm desperately trying to use up so I can buy myself some more bits and bobs.  I followed a sketch from mojo monday which helped me along with my layout.

The next couple of pics show a project I've just finished today.  Waste not want not as they say, so I decorated an old plastic iPhone case with bits from my stash.  I intend to fill it with some homemade crunchie fudge and give it to Freya for her birthday.

Hope you like my little shares today, thank you for visiting my little blog

Well hello again.........

Wow, almost 2 years since I blogged.  I've still been around admiring everyone's creations but I lost interest in card making and therefore neglected my lil blog.

Anyhow, it was my brothers birthday yesterday and I felt like having a play with a LOTV stamp called Cricket.  I'm ashamed to say this little stamp had never seen a colouring medium of any kind, so I dug out my prisma pencils, stamped him onto kraft cardstock and here he is.
It will probably take some time to get back into a blogging routine, especially since I've pretty much forgotton how to do any of it, but fingers crossed this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship lol.

Short and sweet I know, but that's how I'll have to roll until I'm back into the swing of things. Thanks so much for visiting with me today
