Flying in the Air....

 Afternoon All. I am doing some crafty stuff today to see if I can de-stress. Had a horrible experience on Wednesday and still feeling really shaken up by it.
I love this Tilda Stamp so thought I would make another of the dreaded Chrimbo Cards.  

Card Recipe

5 x 5 Card
Tilda Angel stamp
Snowflake Magnolia Stamp 
SU Papers
White Seem binding
Brads from stash
Peel Off Forever Friends
Colouring Medium - Stickles Glitter Glue, Tim Holtz Distress ink  and Promarkers.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.

Passion For Promarkers- (2s of things) My 2s are 2 Snowflake Stamps, 2 Papers and 2 Words) Also being in their top 5 for the last 2 weeks!!! Thanks xx
A Spoonful of Sugar -Things With Wings
Top Tip Tuesday - 2 or More Stamps (3 Magnolia Ones)
Winter Wonderland - Blue and White. (Blog Hop going on  their too!!!!)
Sparkles Forum - Something Metal (4Brads)

My Top Tip this week for Top Tip Tuesday is to be patient when you use Glitter Glue on your cards. There has been man y a time when my fingers have splodged a wet bit and ruined a card!!!!!

Off now to try and rest.

Love and Cuddles

I've buggered up a few with Docrafts glitter glue as it takes so much longer to dry than stickles and I always forget :(

Hope you are ok Hazel. I'm suffering from depression and had agoraphobia and panic attacks and it totally made me lose my confidence. It's taken me seeing a fabulous counsellor to realise I have had anxiety through one form or another all my life and crafting is my sanity at the moment.

If you want a shoulder to lean on or just vent off you are more than welcome to email me at

By the way I love your card but I don't like images without smiles so I would have to draw one on :)

Take care sweetheart, lots of love Mandy xxx
