My Crafty Heart DT card

Good Evening, OMG! how cold has it been today? Hope you are all well and snuggly warm.

My shoulder is feeling much better, probably something to do with the pain killers I'm taking. They're helping me to keep it moving though.

I've made a card using some scrummy MCH goodies & one of my new GG's.
I think the Glitz Design papers were made for GG's, they go together so well.

I used: Glitz Design Vintage Blue paper pad from MCH
Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic ScallopClassic Petal  & D-lites Fantasic Flourish 3 from MCH
Platinum Stickles from MCH
Meiflower black stick on gems & beaded heat in Silver from MCH

I also used: Pro's, Spec's & Prisma's
Vintage Occasion Sentiment from Pink Gem Designs

I'm off for a mooch around Blog land , hope you all have a lovely evening.

Silhouette Manger - Little Claire Designs DT card

Good Evening, hope everyone is safe and sound with all the dreadful rain and flooding we've been having. I really feel for those whose homes have been devastated. Surely there can't be much more rain to come especially after all that we had during the Summer.

I've made a card using a Little Claire Designs stamp. Silhouette Manger. I love this stamp, it is so beautiful and because there isn't any colouring involved it's perfect for batch card making.

I also used : Craftwork Cards patterned paper
Spellbinders & Memory Box dies
Ribbon & pearls from stash

Thank you so much for the well wishes about the pain in my neck.
I'm going to ring the docs tomorrow. I think it's a frozen shoulder, I had it  few years ago and I ended up with physio and an injection.

Right that's me off for a mooch around blog land, hope you all have a lovely evening and stay safe & warm.
