♥ Simon says stamp ~ anything goes ♥

I'm on a little roll with my card making :)  which is fab!!  What did we do before stitched dies were invented?? .... I am loving them and never tire of them and it's great that there are so many to choose from.  I have used my L'il inkers stitched rectangles and my new "smile" die from L'il inkers and a couple of Doodlebug enamel dots ... a very quick and easy card.
I'm entering my card into Simon says stamp ~ anything goes challenge.

Have a fab day ♥

♥ Happy new year ♥

Hi ... sorry haven't been around much lately.  I just want to pop by to wish you all a very happy and blessed 2015.  I trust you all had a lovely Christmas enjoying time spent with family and friends.
I do pop by all your blogs even if I don't leave comments, I still love to see all your amazing cards and all the latest stamps and dies that are on trend.
I can't seem to get motivated to create at the moment, so hopefully I will be more creative this year and get back to my card making and regular blogging posts.

Take care and hope you are all well.

♥ Sweet ceramic bird pendants ♥

Just popping in to show my latest selection of cute ceramic birds I have in my Folksy shop.
I am loving these and they would make beautiful Christmas gifts.  I only have one of each colour at the moment, waiting to see how popular they are before I order in some more.
Can't believe it's October already (",) 11 weeks until Christmas!

Have a lovely day :)

♥ Gifts for music lovers in stock ♥

I'm sure all my regular visitors are wondering where I am?? .... I have been very busy creating jewellery and stocking up my little shop as Christmas is only 12 weeks away ... Can't believe the year has flown by so quickly.
Just want to share a few of my creations ... The piano bracelet I really love :)  I beaded it all with ceramic beads in design of piano key notes and added a little quaver music note that has a little "bling" stone in it.  It is stretchy so great to slide on and off your wrist with no fussing with clasps or if you suffer with dexterity problems this type of bracelet is perfect.
I have a craft fairs late November and early December so just incase you spot something you like for Christmas presents all what I have created will be going to the craft fairs, which family and friends are kindly doing for me as I cannot get to them myself.

Hope you are all well
hugs xxx

♥ A little bit of elegance ♥

I made these very elegant pieces of jewellery yesterday and I just love them.  I love the simplicity of them and think they would look lovely on a bride or to wear to a special occasion.
I used Swarovski white pearls and clear Swarovski crystals, and wire wrapped them.  The chain and earwires are silver plated as from personal experience sterling silver goes black so quickly.
I also found a tip if you keep your silver plated jewellery in plastic grip bags it keeps them from tarnishing and also away from perfumes, hairspray etc ....

Thanks for stopping by ♥

♥ Handmade wire wrapped birds nest pendant ♥

Just popping in with my latest jewellery creation ... a little wire wrapped birds nest :)  I'm very pleased how it turned out.  Made myself one too to wear and hopefully get some orders ;)
Let me know what you think?  I would love to hear some feedback.

I haven't been making cards lately, don't worry I will be, at the moment I am just finding jewellery making very enjoyable and relaxing.  Plus it is something I can do whilst relaxing on the sofa as you all know I suffer with a lot of pain.

Have a fab day!! ♥

♥ My little handmade Swarovski cross pendants ♥

I have been keeping myself really busy :)   I made all these gorgeous wee Swarovski crystal crosses today and have them in my Folksy.  If I say so myself they all turned out lovely and Swarovski is really sparkly in real life (difficult to capture on camera).  They come on a 20" silver plated chain and in gorgeous velvet pouches, but if you would like the pendant without the chain just message me and I can reserve a special listing for you.

Thanks for stopping by
and have a lovely weekend ♥

♥ Love letter earrings and necklace ♥

Popping in to say "hello" and show you more of my jewellery.  I love hearts sooo much, if you are a regular follower you will already know that ... LOL
Little envelopes are platinum plated high mirror shiny effect (excellent quality) and I added a wire wrapped Swarovski crystal to the pendant.
I have made myself a pair of the earrings and love them, so will be making myself a matching necklace too ;)
They are both available to buy in my Folksy.

Thank you for stopping by, the weather is lovely ... but I struggle in the heat (",) 
Enjoy it while it lasts ♥
