Finally done it!!

I've been threatening to start a blog for soooooooo long and never got round to it but here we are,
my first post on my Brand New Shiney Blog ... I expect it won't be long until its covered in glitter, ink, glimmer mists etc like everything else I touch
Here are a couple of cards I made

This one was for my son David who is 19, I really struggle to make cards for him as I tend to do girly cards. He was impressed with it though and I even managed to get some glitter on it.

The stamp is from Joanna Sheen, coloured with promarkers. I cut the letters on my cricut, glittered them with crushed glass glitter and stuck some red gems on as they looked a bit plain on the acetate card front.

This one was for my hubby Paul, it is our first Christmas since we got married and  I had to use the 'Snogging Snowmen' from Joanna Sheen's Enchanted Christmas cd. The snowflakes were made with seed beads and firepolished crystals, they took ages but I was really pleased with them when I got them on the card

Thank you for looking, the pictures aren't brilliant. Maybe I should have asked Santa for a new camera


  1. Claire, congratulations on starting a blog. It's quite hard at first but it soon becomes easier and easier. These are two lovely cards by the way. My favourite has to be the snow people as that was my all time favourite on Joanna's three CD Christmas Set. Best wishes, Kym xxx (aka Pintsizeholly on Joanna Sheen's Forum)

  2. Well done Claire for starting a blog and the cards are lovely. I hope you enjoy posting on this smart blog. Cathy xxxx
