About Me

Hello to all fellow bloggers i am Denise and i have been card making for a good few year's now and i have also done a small amount of scrapbooking . I am married to Robin who likes to get involved as well by printing out the verses for my cards, we have one son called shaun and we live in Nottinghamshire, i am a stay at home wife and mum who likes going out meeting other crafting people. The first time i did any crafting i went to a small craft shop called Kim's in blyth which is a village shop near where i live. Then i got into cricut crafting i tried to master it myself, but then found out that Samauel Taylor's at leed's ran a cricut lessons by Sue Hobb so i got the basic step's from her. Then started going to Ali crafts near Lincoln and i found a lady called Fiona who really does know what she is talking about when it comes to cricut and the design studio so it is to her who i owe big thanks to for getting me to the stage i am at with my crafting.

Two from jo's

I went to a craft class at jo channons last week and made 4 card's i am posting these 2 as i enjoyed doing them very much...

This one was stamped onto rainbow card so very little colouring was needed even the back ground was rainbow card so but turning the card around you could get the shading,,now dont ask me who's stamp it is because i have forgot (silly me)
This card i really love i even think i did a good job colouring it in with the help pf my promarker's ,the stamp is a little claires and the good thing it that everything is on one stamp, so no masking and stamp lineing up..This card is going to my bother-in-law who is going to be 65 next week.Hope he will like it.

The long awaited shed photo's

Here we go then girl's this is my craft shed /den / cabin / villa and my bit of heaven..
My hubby got it for me last october and as you will see he has made a fab job 
 And a bit nearer
This view is from just outside the door
Now we are just inside,as you can see all the way done the left side i have lots of storage, on the edge the wooden draw's are full of all kind's of rubber stamp's.then in the cube's i have my paper and card stored and yes it is also on the top of the unit .
 Then along the 8ft side which has 1 window i again have yet more storage for my cricut thing's but that is under my worktop.
Oh no even more storage along the 10ft side which has three window's, on the bottom right of the photo you can see the worktop turn's again and under it i have a draw unit with all my punches in.

Well i hope you have all enjoyed your trip around my bit of heaven xx
