From one little Star..

Hello Creative Friends,

I hope you are all keeping well and your Christmas crafting is completed?

Mine has had many false starts this year and i'd given up on my handmade 
Christmas cards resorting to previous years leftovers and charity cards. 
...but whilst looking for an embellishment to add to a tag I came across this 
die set. Loving the shape of the large star I just had to see how it all cut.


Lost in the moment with the aid of some Mercury Glass glitter glue 
and visible image sentiments before I knew it I'd created Christmas Cards, 
Tags and Carrier cards for my handmade Christmas Tree ornaments.


I even made a batch of New Year Cards.


The hammered cream card on Kraft looks so fresh and clean.
Who would have thought that one star could have inspired all these.


I'm already thinking of making more of these it's certainly sparked an idea... 
is it wrong to be thinking of Christmas 2019 before the Joy of 2018..?

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend what ever your plans,
For me it's time to decorate that Christmas Tree..

WOYWW #497

Happy WOYWW #497 Everyone..

That midweek creative meet up where we share our work desk.
Thanks to our host Julia over at the stamping ground who rounds 
us up every Wednesday and keeps us in line.

This morning my desk is full of handmades ready to pack and wrap, Cards, 
necklaces and Christmas Tree ornaments mostly hidden as they are gifts.


Found this wee note in a mug from my Daughter .. 
I'm guessing by the addition of  *Love you* it's probably broken haa haa!!
and i'm left wondering if she is asking for glasses this Christmas ?? 
May book her an eye test.. i'd hate her to be disappointed..


*Update on Hubby.. Coronary Angioplasty went well and the Surgeon was happy with the 
pressure wire tests so decided against another stent. The first stent appears to be doing 
it's job along with the medication.. so at last we can look forward to Christmas.. 

Think I need to catch up on some sleep first... Sooo sleepy.

I'll be round to visit asap, I've lots of catch up as i've been awol for a few days.

Paperbabe Stamps ~ #88 Anything Goes

Hello Everyone,

There's a new challenge over at Paperbabe Stamps 
with this fortnights theme being Anything Goes.

Today i'm sharing my Alternative Angel
along with some very basic How to Do's...

Stamping directly onto the substrate using the matching Paperangel stamps
I've coloured and shaded the figure and wings with pencils then embossed
stamped cogs and gears from the Like Clockwork stamp set.

With each Paperangel kit you get two Angels both different in design,
with papers to decorate but I've chose to save the papers for another day. 


Gemstone and brads adorn those embossed cogs and gears


with glittered wings and enamelled heart..


She delicately hangs using an attachment included within kit2.


Gently sharing her love with every visitor.


No matter the season we all need an angel to watch 
over us and share the love don't you agree..?

Please pop on over HERE and see what Kim and the Team have created.
If you choose to share your creativity there's a prize for one lucky creative.

Thank you for sharing a moment of your day with me,
Wishing you all the best and take good care of yourselves.

Creative Hugs
Tracey xx
