Loving Life with a wee bit Twinkle

Hi everyone!…

I have come to the conclusion that with the best will in the world I am not going to be able to blog every day… but I will do my very best to πŸ™‚

Wee Rhona Sprocker Β has been ill and I have had literally no sleep for the last two days, thankfully she is better this evening, so I am hoping everything will return to normal!

So to make up for the lack of a post yesterday, I made 2 cards tonight…

One card uses one of the pre-made wee star embelishment’s made the other week, and the other one uses a wee 2″x 2″ project life piece..


supplies list :-

  • Daler & Rowney Watercolour card
  • Pink Layer is a scrap off my desk
  • Simple Stories 2×2 Loving Life piece
  • Sequins
  • Prima Distress Tool
  • Double Sided Tape & Foam Tape


Next up we have the wee twinkle card..


I am really loving making these soft and natural cards at the moment.. i wonder what my next phase will be? πŸ˜‰


Righty-oh I am off to my wee bed for an early~ish night… wish me luck and keep your fingers crossed I get a full nights sleep !

See you tomorrow


p.s. Did I tell you I was doing a full day’s workshop in June? Β I will explain all tomorrow because what I make now for the next wee while will be my samples for the class πŸ˜‰

Margaret’s flip books


Helen’s Flip Book
