Hello and Welcome...

Hello & Welcome...My name is Anne-Marie, I am a full-time administration assistant for a local housing association, I have a husband, two adult sons, and a mad dog named Fritz. I spend any spare minute crafting (although there are never enough spare minutes)...anything from making cards, papercrafts, knitting, crochet, baking and making jams, curds etc. I also enjoy growing my own fruit/veg in my greenhouse/garden.

I hope I will post something that may be of interest to you.
..thanks for visiting xx

New to Digital Designer

Good Evening

I've had Docrafts Digital Designer installed on my laptop for months and never got around to using it...until now!  Had great fun and found it really easy to use.

So here's my first digitally designed birthday card for a friend's daughter.

I used Papermania Enchanted Christmas & Fairies cd, there are some really lovely images on this disc, can't wait to play more!

Here's a close up of the glittered fairy wings ~ I used stickles glitter glue

And on the name I used Anita's glossing pen to give a raised effect and finished it off with a few little gems.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Creative Moments - Challenge #39 Things with wings
Digistamps4joy - Challenge #89 Add wings
Fab n Funky - Challenge #210 Once Upon A Time

It's April!!!

Where has the first 3 months of the year gone?  Can't believe it's April already.

Not blogged for a while as seem to be busy with allsorts!  And work!

Last night I made another button canvas, an order for a friend.  It's on an A4 size canvas, I'm quite pleased with the outcome, hope the little girl's mum is too :)

I used Sizzlits die for the larger butterfly and All Occasion die for the smaller butterfly

and lots of lovely little pink buttons and gems

I'm off to look if there are any challenges I can enter this into.
