Purple and Pink card

Hi friends, stopping by to share another
'Less is More' challenge card. The 
theme is 'Use a Stencil' this week.
See the usual ps. bit for a piglet story
For my second card I used my TCW 
stencil and pinched some paste my
OH had made. I mixed a bit of alcohol
ink with it and pasted it on the stencil.

I then used a few drops of  3 colours of
alcohol inks on top of the paste. When
 that was dry I sprayed some silver
 ink over it all.

I edged the topper with a silver pen,
then added a stamped sentiment and
 a few sequins. I stamped the butterfly,
gave that a quick silver spray too, then
gave it the same alcohol ink treatment
also. A tiny bit of sparkle was added
 later to the wings.

Phew job done!, I hope you like it,
 the colours are very bright irl ;)

ps. on our way to our usual walk this 
morning we came accross a tiny piglet
walking along the main road. So hard
 to catch the little thing, much squealing
We managed it in the end, after 
holding all the traffic up for a while.
We took it to a local farm we know
 (as no pigs around alas), they phoned
another farmer who was coming to get 

No idea how it had escaped etc.It went to
 sleep being cuddled, must have known we
 were vegetarians lol. It was put in a small
 dog cage waiting to be reunited with it's
 mummy. So a happy ending ;)

New jewellery!

Hi friends, just popping by to show you
 some jewellery I made recently.
Mostly earrings but a few necklaces
I made a set each for my lovely SIL's
who we shared a holiday with a few 
weeks ago. I also made a similar set for

One of my SIL's likes longer earrings
and one likes shorter ones, hence the
different lengths!

I made little paper bags for them all
and gave them a matching card.
Happy to say my SIL's loved 
One of my SIL's forgot an evening
 bag and even used the gift bag 
several evenings. How sweet is
 that ;)

Light blue and clear stones

These are dark navy and clear stones.

Silver/clear/greyish stones

Set made for myself

Matching wire tangle necklaces

Set made for Judy!

Set made for Therese!

I used some Pink Petticoat digi paper for the bags and a Sue Wilson die for tags.


Matching card using PP digi paper again and computerised text.
