It's time for a GIVEAWAY :-)

I have reached over 500 likes on my Facebook page, and to thank people for their support and kind words, I am having a giveaway... and of course I will say thank you too!

THANK YOU everyone (I shouted that from the roof top!), it's lovely to have met so many lovely people and I hope I continue to do so, and it's lovely that so many people think me work is lovely too :-D.

I will be announcing the winner round about this time next week, and the winner will be able to 'choose from one of the following options' ;-)

One of my cosmetic bags, chosen from this collection...

... or a £10 discount voucher to spend in my Etsy shop...

... or alternatively, £20 discount off one of my paper cut trees.  A Memory Tree (perfect for a new baby gift, a Christening or Baby Naming gift, a first birthday, a wedding or other occasion you would like to remember), or a Family Tree.

So, what are you waiting for?  Get yourself over to my page.  If you don't already 'like' my page, then please do so, and then leave me details of your favourite pudding (?!!) under the giveaway post.  Oh, and please do be very lovely and like it and share it with your friends.

Yey.... have a lovely Sunday evening.  Here's to week two of the summer holidays *raising glass*.  Have a lovely week :-)

Cut, cut, cut...

Since my last post, my time has been spent creating paper cuts!  My 'The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face' resulted in a number of commissions, so I have been a very busy lady (and still have work to complete)!

The first was using the same art work I had used for "The First Time', but using different lyrics.  Someone else's special song :-)

And then there was 'The Owl and The Pussy Cat'.  It was lovely doing this.  I love the song, and I am really pleased with my water!

I've not had chance to take any decent images, but will share them with you as soon as I do!

It has also been the Fairy's birthday, and although I felt her party was a bit of a cop out (she'd decided she wanted a film party, so not much organising to do!) ...

... but I did make her a very beautiful card.

A bit of an improvement in my cutting since her card from last year!

Oh, and we also managed to spend a few days with my brother and his family... 

... enjoying the sun (something we are still struggling to find up north) whilst partaking in various o'clocks (one day we had Pimms o'clock, G&T o'clock AND wine o'clock)!  Fab!

'The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face'

This has to be one of my all time favourite songs.  I love the original version sung by Roberta Flack, but the Stereophonics version is fantabulous!

So here it is in paper cut!

When my mum saw the art work before I started cutting it she informed me that my head was wrong, that I wasn't wired up right.  This is because everything is done as a negative on the reverse, so each word is written backwards!  It is surprising how adaptable brains are, however I do sit by a mirror, just so I can check I am getting it right as I go along.

Everything has been painstakingly cut by hand using a scalpel.  Can you imagine the hours?  I daren't add them up!!!

This paper cut is for sale.  You can find out more about it here.

Must go and get some sewing done.  I have orders to fulfill!
Have a lovely day x
