I love doing these fairies
I think its finally working again. Hooray! When I began crafting I was rubbish at stamping but enjoyed decoupage, so I did loads of that. I enjoy doing detailed ones with lots of layers. I have a boxfull just waiting to be added to cards, or to scrapbook pages. I like fairy ones best but its easier to do the cutting than to make the cards.
The pink one is from a flower fairy kit, so the design was already sorted.

I was trying to upload some images when my router crashed. Now I have lost them and have no idea how to recover them. It won't let me add new images. so I am feeling quite frustrated. It happened last time and I eventually managed to start again but forget how I did it. Typical, I am such a novice when it comes to computers.

winter encaustic

I did this one to use as a background on winter cards. It scans well so I am keeping the original. If any of my friends wants to use it feel free to copy it.

I was so busy scrapping the wedding that I almost forgot to make my son a birthday card. As he was born at 11am on the 11th of November, its hard to forget! So i took a break from scrapping and backed an encaustic picture with gold coloured paper, popped it into an aperture card which I bordered with black peel offs and added a sticker and his name. As his sister, Crafty Claire, says its very "him", so I hope he will agree.
