Special Friend!

I've been wanting to try these paper ruffles ever since I saw them on
Clares blog.  My first try at these wasn't too successful, but I decided to use them anyway. I'll just keep trying & hopefully they'll get better.  
The next pic is a little dark...sorry about that.

I just about have my album finished, just need to make one more insert for a pocket, then it's done.  Here's a picture of another one of the pages,  I will post the rest soon.

My hubby feeding his horses.

Thanks for visiting my blog today, see ya soon!

Fall Colours!

Hi there, still working on my album, so thought I would show you some ribbon that I picked up at Michael's this week for 50% off.
The pictures really don't do it justice at all, it is just beautiful.  
I love these colours and am looking forward to using these on some cards soon.

Now I'll show you one of the pages from the album I'm working on...

 My handsome hubby with Nike, an Akita we had some years ago.

That's all for now, hope you all have a super day!

This *n* That

Good morning all,
I don't have anything new to post at the moment as I am working on a mini album.  It takes me a while to finish one, so in the meantime I thought I would show you a few items that I made for a sale a couple of years back.

These are bookmarks and the holder that I made to display them in.

These two I made for friends.

Owl cards
I think I found these on Dawn's blog. She has tons of neat things to see as well as lots of video tutorials, definitely worth checking out.

Not forgetting our little furry friends.

Aren't these cute?
Found them on Dawn's blog too.

Here's some gift bags that I decorated to go with the cards.
Well, that's all for this time, hope you have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by today.

What a Doll!

I first saw these dolls and clothes on Stacey's blog and I thought they were so cute.  I decided to make a set for a little friend of ours. I also copied Stacey's idea of the sidestep dresser card to go with them.  I don't think she'll mind lol.
I was disappointed how mine turned out, the polka dot paper looks grubby, but it's not....maybe not such a good choice though for this, but it does look better in real life. lol
Here's a few pictures...

This is the card with a teddy sitting in the drawer, a mirror, coat hanger and rocking horse in front.

I coloured or paper pieced the clothes and added glitter, gems & lace to them.  I think they turned out pretty cute, I hope she likes them.  
The doll and clothes can be found here
Dorcas has the pattern for the dresser card.
You can find a tutorial for the miniature hanger here 

Thanks for stopping by to visit, bye for now.

WOYWW...and what a mess it is!

Lots of room on this table, but I still manage to fill up the entire space with all my stuff.  At the front right is the beginnings of a mini album.  I'm going to make it out of kraft envelopes from the dollar store.

I've been making a dress up doll set for a gift, it's quite a lot of work to cut everything out then do all the dresses  I first saw these on Stacey's blog. (link further down on right)

I'm sure you've seen enough of my messyness (is that a word?) now, so till next time, I'll say cheerio & have a very nice day!

 Here's an anniversary card, it is a new fold for me which I found on Valita's blog,  The paper is DCWV "Blossom Song" stack ~ ribbon from Walmart ~ sentiment is a digi image.

Here is how the front looks.

A closer look.

I am entering this card in the Simon Says Challenge (multifold cards)  as well as the *Pink Wedded Bliss* colour challenge at the Shabby Tea Room.
