March PinChicks challenge

wow where did March go?
Its time to share our pinterest projects and here is mine....
I've been saving the ring pulls/tabs from our diet coke cans and was wondering what I would end up using them for..

But as my special girl will reach the grand old age of 12 in April I decided to make her birthday pressie.

I'm not sure if she looks impressed tho LOL
I couldn't take a photo of her using it as i'm keeping it for her birthday but its lovely and strong.
I crocheted (is that a real word)? anyway, I crocheted it with some red cotton thread that was a gift from my craft buddy Sandy Crossfiled (thanks you hun) xx
I've got loads of ring pulls left so watch this space for another project before the end of the year.. hmm maybe a bag next time?
please pop over to the other members of our group to see what they have made this month and leave a little love for them.
feel free to join us anytime you want. just contact one of us.
hugs Suzanne xx

Getting back to Nature

wow we had so many entires at creative inspirations this last fortnight and I've really enjoyed visiting some of your blogs to see what all you talented crafters have been making.
thats the best part of being on a design team, popping in to visit other crafters blogs so thank you to everyone who entered from Natalie, me and the rest of the design team.... you guys rock!
so now its time for a new challenge and this fortnight we are getting back to nature....
this one suits me like a glove as I love nature, especially British nature.
perfect opportunity to plug my husbands blog here..., he takes some amazing photos of our british wildlife so please pop over and leave him some love.
here is my nature card...
various circle dies were used to make the front of the card and I used antique linen and vintage photo distress inks.
the inside of the card is a Cover~a~Card stamp from Impression Obsession called Birds on Trees.
Its a large stamp but using my Misti makes easy work of stamp it it.

the stamp set used is one I bought from a facebook craft group so I don't know the name of them, if anyone can help me find out I would be grateful.
I've used some paper twine and an acorn charm to add the finishing touch.
good luck to everyone this fortnight and i'm looking forward to visiting lots of blogs again.
you can add your creations here
hugs for now

somthing pretty

Hello my crafty friends....
Its time for a new challenge at creative inspirations and the theme this fortnight is
Something Pretty.
It doesn't come much easier than that does it, we all like pretty cards don't we.
so here is mine....
I used paper smooches 'Love' die and memory box stitched hearts.
The triangle border is an Apple Blossom die.

Magnolia Tag with gem alphabet.

I hope my mum likes this card but she is a typical mum and still saves anything I have made for her.
You should see some of my school pottery projects that she still has, they are monsters but she loves them like only a mother can. lol
I may take some photo's and blog about my art work, hmm its an insult to call it art! lol
getting back to my card...
I hope you will create something pretty and join us at creative inspirations.
we have an amazing prize up for grabs, I wish I could enter because I would love to be in with a chance of winning this....
from the charm company, gorgeous aren't they!
good luck everyone!
thanks for stopping by today.
