This is my card for the CCW guest design team card.  We were asked to simply put a sentiment on the card. I have used embossed paper, ribbon and a brad to finish it off.

My Make For Today

I was emailed the instructions to make this card off a lovely lady on FB.  It took me about 2 hours and I walked away half way through and came back to it as I got a little frustrated!

First Xmas Cards of the year

 The bow is hiding the fact it is extremly crooked!  Glitter sprayed the picture adn got it all over my hands.

First practice at using species on both cards, I actually quite like them but did use my promarkers with them too.

last item for the day

This was made with the lovely images that Flyin on MSE/FB sent me.  I may have to purchase them for myself as they are sooo cute

2nd candle in a day!

I've run out of blank candles now so will have to wait until I have some more!

First Attempt

My first attempt at a stamped candle.  i'm rather proud of it if I do say so myself!  The stamp was bought from Daisy Jewels and Crafts and is part of the new tatty teddy xmas range.  It has been coloured with promarkers before being transfered to the candle.

A Worthwhile Cause

I was asked over on Facebook to spare a bit of my blog space to tell a story.  Well here goes:

I lost my Aunt to cancer in June of this year and I wanted to do something to help cancer charities and as my hubby and I already had our own little handmade card business we thought we could do something alongside this. We decided to create a range of photo cards where a percentage of each sale would be used to donate to a cancer charity. we have had friends and family donating photos for us to use and have so far created cards, keyrings , bookmarks and gift tags. My Aunts name was Doreen which is where the name Doreen's Dreams came from , we have had a custom made stamp made for the back of the cards - my cousin ( my Aunts daughter came up with the design ) we wanted the D of Dreams to be made to look like a butterfly as my Aunt loved butterflies, the butterfly will be coloured in according to what cancer charity we are supporting at the time, pink for a female cancer charity ,blue for a male one and brightly coloured for a childrens charity.
At the moment we are raising funds for Marie Curie as they provided support for my Aunt and her family.
we have been set up for about two weeks now and have already raised £12 for Marie Curie.

Most people in their lifetime get touched by the big C. I'm lucky thus far, it hasn't touched me or those close to me, but i'm aware that a few of my MSE friends are going through tough times at the moment.

I would love it for people on facebook to visitthe  facebook page and have a quick look.   Doreen's Dreams

Thank you for reading

Weekend Makes......2

This is my MSE challenge card, i've added some pearls!
 This is part of the C&C bargain sets I got, this is a hunky dory kit, I can't remember the name of it tho, sorry!
 I love this paper, again hunky dory bargain.
 Again, another C&C sale bargain. I think this set is called diaries or something, but it had 84 elements, a few of which were these sort of acetate cards, I love them!!!
