I made the roses using two different sizes of cheery lynn Tea roses die. they are so easy to cut and stick together. I love them.
the single rose stamp was a gift from my friend and fellow DT member Sarah Swire but it doesn't have a name on the wooden block so I can't tell you who makes it.
the frame is a Marianne Die CR1241
if you have any questions give me shout and i'll do my best to answer.
you can find me on FB
so what are you waiting for?
come on, get your roses out and share your creations with us, you know how much we love to see what you are making.
good luck with the amazing prize.

New Years Resolution..... January = Check

Hello crafters,
I'm here with my January project today. Some of my docraft refugee buddies will already know that my New year resolution is to try at least one Pinterest project each month for 2015.
I keep saving all the amazing things I see but spend so much time looking at things and not actually making anything so that is going to change.
hmmm do I sound confident?
so.... its January 18th and I've tried a slimming world recipe and they was amazing!
I've added that to my January pin board if anyone wants to try it, trust me, it was yummy, even my husband loved it!
hmmm but recipes are not really crafting are they so I thought I'd find something better and as Pickle had inspired me to learn to crochet I thought that would be a good first project.
as I said though, im a total beginner so I cant make amazing things yet and decided a scarf would be a good starting point.
I searched pinterst (for more hours than I want to admit to) and found a Puff stitch scarf. perfec!
I did two rows twice and undid them but on the third attempt something in my pea brain clicked and I was off......

its so puffy and soft, I love it!
giving myself a pat on the back here. LOL
HERE is the original pin and free pattern. its so easy to follow.
If anyone would like to join me in the Pinterest Per Month challenge please comment and let us know where we can see your projects.
My good friend Margaret has finished her January project aswell so I really hope you pop over to her blog and check it out. what an amazingly talented lady she is.
awww I'm excited about February now.... hmmm what shall I make?
you will have to pop back and find out.
thank you for any comments you may wish to learn and we would really love to have you join us and show us what you are making this month.
happy crafting,
hugs Suzanne2

ribbons ribbons ribbons!

Happy new Year!!!
wow 2014 flew by didn't it.
so here we are in 2015 and our first challenge this year at creative inspirations is to use a ribbon
simple aye?
of course it is. here is my card...
I chose organza ribbon for this card and worked round that adding the Impression Obsession heart sticks, I just love that die.
I stamped and embossed some vellum which looks nicer in real life.
I've also added lots of stickles and some pearls.
I hope you will join in our challenge this week at Creative Inspirations
there is a great prize up for grabs every week.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you all make, that's the best part of being on the DT.
