Festive Splendour Hunkydory

I’m all for using up all of my bits and pieces when buying a kit and this seamed the perfect way, after using a couple of the toppers to make cards I can find that I have spares on the sheet and occasionally a background card too.

Festive Splendour from Hunkydory has so many pretty background sheets that I thought it would make a perfect designer gift box to accompany the card I had made.

Festive Splendour 1

I also used some Adorable Scorable for the box base in a contrasting colour.

Festive Splendour 2

Now pop in a few home made sweets or maybe cookies and you have the perfect Christmas treat in a beautiful gift box.

Shimmering Pearl

It’s fast approaching my Mams Birthday and being a garden lover and a bird feeder I thought it would have to be something featuring this, Shimmering Pearl from Hunkydory was the perfect choice, it is now available at Hunkydory to purchase and it would be rude not to pop in your basket some of the Adorable Scorable and foiled acetate while you are there ha ha!


The center panel has foiled acetate domed over the the birdcage and ribbon to add a bit of extra design, I used two of the sumptuous backgrounds for the card cutting panels from each and a sheet of the die cut elements.

The little birds are just gorgeous with their gold accents.


Using one of the inserts for the inside and a few diamond sparkle gems on the front my card was complete.

I have been promising myself a try at this and when the chance came along I grasped it with both hands.

Meryl makes you very welcome and I spent the day with fabulous company our Ruth from Hunkydory having a good old chin wag and giggle.

If like Ruth and myself you used to do sugar craft then this relaxing craft will be right up your street.

Jack Glass Blowing and Special Gifts

We have had a wonderful day out today, you may remember me visiting the Sunderland Glass Center as I wrote a post on it. We took Jack and his Mam Lauren along with us today and it was very special, Jack even got the chance to try his hand at glass blowing. (see video at end of my post)
We also had a little tour and Chris’s Friend gave both Jack and myself a beautiful hand crafted gift each.
Glass Cups 1
This one is mine.
Glass Cups 2
and this one is Jacks
Glass Cups 3
Dave makes these to sell and they cost £20.00 but all are unique and would make beautiful gifts, just let me know if you would like to purchase one and I will pass your details on to Dave.
Mine actually holds 16floz that is 3/4 of a pint.
Handles can be made in many colours one of which I saw was a gorgeous pink.
here is the video of our Grandson Jack blowing the glass.
