Jewellery for a change and a wee Baby card

Hello again, two posts today, trying to catch up with all the stuff I haven't blogged yet. 
I've recently been making little bracelets  and necklaces for my 3 year old Grand Daughter who just loves helping me and now has more jewellery than so I decided to make some for myself.
I made this bracelet a few days ago while sitting in the garden. I wanted it for my hols next week so here it is.  I don't think I will ever buy a bracelet again they are so easy to make and really good fun too.
Below is a card I made last night for my friend Dorothy who has just become an Aunty...Awww!! this is to give to her new Sister In Law and I'm pleased to say she loved it.

Thanks for popping in, 
Happy crafting

Purple and Blue @ Charisma this week

Good morning crafters this week is team B's challenge so I don't have a card to share with you but I'm sure you'll be bowled over with the inspiration for you this week over on the Charisma Challenge blog.
This week's challenge is 


Any creation from any type of craft!!! 

As always we have some fantastic sponsors...


"Sassy Studio Designs is a fresh new company. We have been designing and selling for a year now, and we have been kindly received into the community of digi stampers and crafters. I started designing images shortly after I started stamping, reason being...I didn't hardly like anything else out there I was a young adult woman at the time I was engaged, had no kids, I wanted fun sexy images that I would enjoy using and my friends and hubby would enjoy receiving. I designed images for 2 other digi stamp companies when my wonderful hubby kept trying to get me to go out on my own. So in June 2009 thanks to the few faithful followers I had, Sassy Studio Designs was born!  It has been a wonderful journey starting my own store. We have just grown so much these past months.I still try to keep "
Lindsay Dyer: keep with my original philosophy and reason for designing stamps, make them fun and keep them sassy...and yes sometimes even sexy!

One Lucky Crafter winner will get to pick 4 of the beautiful digi's as this fortnights prize!

Delicious Doodles is a young company with myself,
Teri, as the Sole Trader/Designer.
I have doodled and sketched all of my life.
I started making greetings cards when my last child was born, and used my doodles on them as I couldn’t find what I wanted in the usual craft places.
I only started selling my images in the Autumn of 2009.
I design and hand/mouse-draw all of the images that are sold in the Delicious Doodles Shop. Some are cutsie animals, some are sketched flowers, there are a few men's images, fairies and also some 'darker' images featuring vampires, skulls and Gothic stuff, something for everyone!
Why not pop over and take a look.

Welcome to the Charisma Cardz Meets Die Cut Crazy Special Challenge & Blog Hop.
 Our Wonderful design team have this week teamed up with the wonderful Magazine Die cut Crazy  to bring you some wonderful inspiration from the world of Die Cutting and also a fab packed April Edition which is avalible for download on all IOS Apple Devices via the Newstand & in PDF format from the website! Our designers have made some wonderful Easter and Spring projects to inspire your own  crafting with your die cuts.

This week at Charisma we have an ‘ANYTHING GOES’ Challenge where you can join in by linking or emailing charisma with your cards/designs and of course as always there are some fabulous prizes to be won which the winners will be announced next week on the blog and featured in next months issue of Die Cut Crazy.

As well as this we have a fabulous blog hop show casing all the designers which you should have a look around! And for each comment you leave at each stop we’ll be drawing some random winners for prizes!

If you just joined our hop, be sure and go back to the 
Charisma CardzChallenge Blog to start from the beginning! 

For my DT project I decided to make a simple little Easter Basket . This is a list of the materials used.
1st Edition Papers....Blank Canvas
Marianne Creatables.....Doily Die
Britania dies...Med Flower Rose Die
Britania Dies...Leaf Strip
Joy Craft ... Daisy Die
Martha Stewart Doily Border Punch
Satin Ribbon
Ric Rac

 Using 8 x 8inch paper/card   make a box base or alternatively use a ready made box and decorate with your chosen papers
Next using your die cut machine cut 2 Marianne  Doilies  then cut each one in half. This will give you the 4 flaps. Measure   1cm in from flat edge and score. Fold to give the hinge to go over the box edge. Secure flaps to the inside of the box with Tape or glue and decorate with die cut flowers.
 Make the handle with Martha Stewart border punch and secure to the inside of the base either with glue, tape or a small brad underneath the flap. Add the same punched border around the bottom of the base and then add some  Ric Rac. Decorate the handle with a few die cut leaves and flowers adding a gem to the centre of each. Finally finish off with some ribbon on the handle and add shredded tissue paper and some Easter Eggs or chocolates.

 Thanks for stopping by the Charisma Cardz Meets Die Cut Crazy Magazine Blog Hop & Challenge . I hope my project inspires you to create your own Spring/Easter project.
