Distress Inks, SplodgeAway mat, Lavinia stamps, Chocolate Baroque stamp, Birthday cards

Hi there, 
my name is Pauline, and I am a craft-a-holic !!

 It has taken me a while to get around to making this blog, and I am very new to it, so please bear with me.
I have been crafting most of my life, in one way or another, dress-making, sewing, embroidery, sugar-craft, but discovered my passion for card-making about 10 years ago. I  slowly got a taste for stamping about 3 years ago, and my vast collection of stamps is growing by the day !!
I have my own crafty space in our house, since 2 of my 3 sons moved out, and found their own homes. My partner Robin and I transformed the smallest bedroom into my haven, where I spend most of my 'free' time, playing, with my huge stash.

I will periodically pop a piccy of my creations on this blog, for you to see, and hopefully enjoy,  any comments you may wish to leave me, will be gratefully received.

This is a very simple, but effective card, using a Chocolate Baroque stamp.
The card was coloured with Distress inks and stamped, the birds were stamped again, cut out and raised, to give depth.

The next card was made using fabulous 'Lavinia' stamps, (my current favorites),
I love the images, and the fairy-tale feel they give.

Again using Distress inks, and lots of glitter.

Well I'm off up to my Crafty haven, to get a bit inky.
I'll pop some more piccy's on tomorrow, see you then,
hugs  //(*_*)\\ xxx
