Tribute To A Seamstress.....

Here I am again...twice in one day...must be some kind of a record for me!
Anyway, I worked on making this special card most of the day yesterday so I would like to share it with you now.
Why so special...a few reasons, actually.
Mainly of course because it's for my Mum's 85th Birthday next week, but also because the top small piece of material looks exactly like that of a dress she bought back in the 50's and still has in her wardrobe.  It cost her a whole week's wages then (she was in so much trouble when she got home) ...it is still stunning but it is about a size 10, so not much hope of any of us ever getting into it!  She can't bear to part with it although she has considered taking it to some of the "retro" shops, but so far she hasn't and I'm not sure she ever will!  Finally, Mum has been tailoring and dressmaking for many years now and still attends a quilting class every second week and is busily making her Christmas panels for the family....I swear we are all running out of wall space to hang them...lol!
This is my humble tribute to a wonderful Mum whose energy at 85 puts me to shame at times and who has a busier social life than I do!
This has been designed in Craft Artist 2 Professional although I exported it to MCS to complete the text as I feel that it is easier to manipulate it there. 
The artwork is from Polka Doodles "Piknix" Heavenly Garden cd.
I'd love to know what you think of my first efforts with CA2.
Thanks so much for popping by - Haste ye Back!

My latest commissions.....

Hello, my friends, I hope this finds you warm, dry and happily crafting on what is a very miserable day here in South West Scotland.  Here are a few commissions I made last month but couldn't share until now.
I'm told they were very well received, and I hope you like them, too.
The first is from Jems Designs "A Puppy's Tale" cd and was for a 50th Birthday.

The second is from a My Craft Studio "Papercraft Library" cd and was for a First Wedding Anniversary.

And the third is a Birthday card made using Jem's Designs "Whispering Wings" cd.


Thank you so much for popping by, and I would appreciate your comments.
Haste ye Back!

A few little Jems.....

Hello, everyone. Well, that's the holidays over for another year! We had wonderful weather down South and met up with family and friends during our two weeks away, but, truth be told, I am so happy to be home and getting back into my crafting! Are we crafters all like that?
Tonight I'm sharing with you my latest designs to be featured by Jem's Designs on Create and Craft yesterday. A mixed bag, so to speak, with a beautiful soft winter themed cd - "A Fantasy Winter" - and a more gutsy Gothic take on Christmas cd - "I'm Screaming Of A White Christmas". I understand the latter won't be everyone's cup of tea, but it's good that Jems cater for that genre as it is big business out there and ever-growing in popularity...no offence is intended against our very important traditional Christmas. I think it's a bit of fun!
I hope you like my work.
