It's Hunkydory......

Morning all.... 

Where does the time go?? It seems to be whizzing so quickly through this year, it will soon be time to put my Santa Countdown on my ol' blog.... 

This week saw me make a big change to my crafty life. I have given up Docrafts, and my last demonstration for them will be at Doncaster this Sunday. It was a decision I came to after alot of thinking and wondering (as you do!) and everything considered, decided it was for the best. 

It has given me lots more free time to play work with my Tonic dies too... so much fun ahead and more cuddles with my Jodie... what more could I ask for?! Tonic as a whole are a fantastic set of folks to work with and I couldn't have been made to feel more welcome and part of the team by Jodie. Love that girl!

This week saw me up at Hunkydory in Preston demonstrating for Tonic, and featured mainly the Beautiful Bramble, Vine and Twine dies... aren't they beautiful?! So this morning I thought I would share a little bit of inspiration from the demo and put a few cards up. These were quick demo's but I hope you like them. 

This card above features embossing folders, dies and the lovely sentiment dies that came out a while ago. Quite a simple card, but I used a pink and grey colour combination which I love. 

This is the Beautiful Bramble... love it! So fine and elegant. I have drop shadowed the die cut and added some mirror card behind it. I used a little decoupage for the centre, but this can be anything you wish. 

The vine oval is just great to give your cards a different look. You can see how the Twine corners work perfectly at the sides of the shape. The little flowers were punched, shaped and inked from the Tonic punches. 

And finally, a little Twisted Twine card. Simply cut and mounted onto a layer of snowy blue background paper and a little topper that I found in my stash last week. Love the Great Tit... one of my favourite birds. So pretty. 

I hope you like my little selection of projects for today... Onto today's To Do list now, and samples need making, things need doing and cleaning .... well, I think that can wait for a few hours. 

Happy Crafting all!
