When I first made this video tutorial of how to make a double bow using only my fingers I never thought that it would be so popular today it has had over 107,000 views and been shared countless times too.

Does that mean that my little video has gone viral?

Festive Birds of Britain

I truly think this is a gorgeous collect from Hunkydory, I think because it would be good for so many winter occasions.

Here is a few of my makes from the set.

The owl image is so warm, this card was made from the background sheet and one of the die cut tags.

Hunkydory Festive Birds of Britain

I'll be back at 6pm today Sunday with this gorgeous set, brilliant for winter birthdays too. I would hate you to miss out on this set as it is simply beautiful.
This is a couple of the cards that I made on yesterday's shows.
This is one from the robin topper sheet, the gold center embellishment was made with hot glue and the diamond sparkle glitter.
This next card was made using a sheet from the Little Book of Festive Birds and the Book of foiled backgrounds.
As you can see this set has stunning artwork.

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.
