A ladies diary

My friend asked me to alter a notebook for her ! She a very classy lady so I knew what I wanted to do ! My fellow crafter cakecoffeecraft (please drop by her blog ) very kindly gave me some graphic 45 papers ! 
I started by distressing the front back an insides of the notebook adding the backing papers and making the front very decorative by using cut outs of a ladies diary added lace and flowers ! 
I hope you like this and thanks for looking x Maria x

Help from the hubby :)

I was asked to do an 8x8 card for a little 2 year old boy that's mad on tractors ! I was finding it really difficult to find a tractor topper or stamp to fit the size card so I asked my husband if he could draw and colour one in for me ! Bless his cotton socks I think he made a real good job of it ! With my added touches of building the card I'm really pleased ! It was nice for me to do a little project with my hubby :) thanks for looking have a fab afternoon xx

Leaving card

Good afternoon crafters today's post is a leaving card I was asked to do ! They requested a large card for loads of people to sign but because it was such short notice I couldn't get one, so what I've done Is make a book instead using a hobbyhouse topper and stickers ! I put 2 8x8 cards together punched holes made the front with the above , the inside is literally distress ink and sticker corners all put together with ribbon ! I'm really pleased how this has turned out an I hope you like it :) enjoy the rest of your weekend xx Maria xx

I popped to my local craft shop where Wendy helped me massively she had some toppers which were kanban she embossed the card and cut some backing card for me with spellbinders ! I've put it together with a lovely ribbon an gem added the wedding info on an I have to say I'm really pleased with it ! 
Well I hope you all have a fab weekend happy crafting xx

Charity kit from hopes and chances

I purchased this kit from hopes and chances all the money from the kits she is donating 2 Ronald macdonald house which is a cause very close to her heart ! 
Back to my kit I pretty much followed the instructions which were a guideline to put it together I destressed pretty much everything (addicted to doing that ) stamped the notes pages n distressed them added a few corners coloured them with pro markers and put it all together! 
I absolutely love this and can't wait to purchase the other charity recipes to add to my book ! Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your day xx
