Happy Crafting 
A very Special Thank You
To Camilla
for teaching us this morning
at our pro-marker fun day
here are my 2 images I tried,
both are available to purchase at

                                                           This one is called Joy

This one is called Flora

I had a bit of a boo boo, on this one, I didn't see the arm, so had to disguise it with some extra added foliage

They are available from the Simply adorable range.

but be careful, the whole range is beautiful.
you'll want them all.

Fun Night Cards August

Fun night card with a Nautical Theme.

Yvonne (me)
This is my card 
We had a selection of card from Papermill.
Marine Images and background,
I have entered this card into
Crafting with the Dragon HERE
Pop over and have a look at all the other entries.

everyone had a blank kit, and I put a lovely selection of twines, marine embellishments, sand,shells and moss, plus inks and chalks out on the table, and the cards were made free style.
it just goes to show how different everyone creative minds work.

here is a link to the on line shop I got my shells from, in the uk .
but you can fine loads on ebay.


I just tried to place an order for more shells from shellco and got a security warning, so have sent them a message,
will let you know how I get on.

Update. they do a a security warning
 (which pops up from Google Chrome)
 but it's perfectly okay to go ahead and order.

Thanks Girls for a great fun night
hope I got all the names right,
and apologies for poor pictures.





Sorry this photo is very blurred


Sorry girls didn't get to photo them all.

Just a tip girls, the metal embelleshments do not liked to be stuck with glue, so add some wire, twine,or ribbon to hang them on, and stick the hanging attachment to the card first, you could hide it with a little moss or sand, so you don't see it.

This is the 1st card we made
everyone had a pre-cut kit, and we assembeled it together
