Sheena's Village Mystery

Sorry for the break been a bit busy again with work and looking after my Granddaughter while her Mum's at work. Talking of Mia, guess who's fast asleep in her travel cot at this moment in time.
So the weekend after the Trade show Kay and I travelled to Bracknell for the Sincerely Yours show.
Only a one day show this but we had the launch of Book 4 from Hougie and also a new circle cutter which went very well. If you want to see it in action and are coming to Farnborough for the Make It show ask Kay for a demo.
This week is going too quick, we leave for Farnborough tomorrow and I still have the sausage rolls to make lol.
Tattered Lace was on today with some great deals on the dies as well as a very good starter kit. I did make a couple more cards for this show using the Rocking Horse die.

I loved the way this turned out, the papers are from The House of Zandra, another company whose paper I can't resist. saying that reminds me Lili of the Valley will be at Farnborough with 6 new paper pads.
Sheena is on our screens again tomorrow with The Village Mystery stamps, a little bit different but with Sheena's favourite era the 50's.
The inkoids played with H20s  and distress inks with these stamps also adding some of Sheena's Flower stamps.

The houses were stamped in black twice, then one image was die cut. This piece I then painted with H20s and after adding 3d foam to the back placed over the first image.
The flowers were stamped on American Crafts card  and then cut out and the roses built up.
Well somebody will be awake soon so for now Happy Crafting.


  1. Stunning and very clever card, I love it xx Zoe xx

  2. Hi Karen. Love both cards. Hope you manage to get a quick rest before Farnborough. Take care.

  3. HI Karen
    Thank you lovely cards take care and have fun with Mia, Kitty

  4. Good afternoon Karen and little Mia,
    There is something about the 2nd card that i just find so enchanting in the colours, the way you have layered, just everything is so lovely. The carousel horse is almost identical as my tin rocking horse that i had as a child. It was all painted in the most beautiful of colours and was embossed in the different parts like the mane and the tail, the saddle was embossed outwards, it was so beautiful. Thank you for the happy trip down memory lane and i hope you have a lovely day with your little granddaughter,
    Love and crafty hugs
