A HOWLING WIND......

.......Well that's the weather going on outside here tonight, so it's great to be inside and warm and cosy, working on a blog post.

Firstly tonight I would like to mention that Katy's fabulous fifth issue of her 'mixed up' digital magazine is now available and on sale to view.  It's full of glorious mixed media artistic creations and in this issue I have a project, and so does Sylvie, one of our lovely CI teamies, plus there are a couple of mini makes by Flo in there too. There is also a freebie for you to print out and use, which comes from one of our mini image books, plus a nice discount code you can use for your purchases on the CI Website.  Check it all out and make your magazine purchase at: https://www.mixedupmag.com/   I believe you can have a look at the first issue for free as well on there, so that you can see how marvellous it all is!  Here is a sneaky peak of a part of my current issue project....


I got the gold leaf out for this one!

My makes for posting tonight are all by Sylvie too, and here they are.  I'm loving the first two gorgeous cards where Sylvie has used CI-238 for the main images, and made her backgrounds with CI-435.  I'm so pleased I can also get the piccies nice and big for you here ....





Beautiful colours Sylvie!

She has also been playing with the little birdie from CI-456 and the lovely feather from CI-397, in this very pretty and quirky make...


  
....as well as a border design from CI-451 in the background.

In the last two makes below Sylvie has used some older stamps of ours.  This one is no longer available, but I reckon many of you will still have it in your stash....


This next one is still available Here, and is one of my older favourites....


Thanks as always folks for your kind comments on my last post, and hopefully on this one too. 
Take care, have some crafty fun, and watch out as I will be back with you soon I'm sure,

Jean x

Love Sylvie's CI-435 backgrounds and teaming them up with the ladies stamps is inspired! I am tempted to CASE the bird card and the shabby chic girls' cards are beautiful! What a treat!
