Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

Spellbinder - Spade Borderabilitie Christmas Card No.25

It is just me that's having problems with the internet???? My computer's on a go slow. It will not allow me to connect at times, I keep losing my followers pictures, my counter has stopped registering, I type and letters appears seconds later, in a rush, after I have typed them again...and every is flittering about - it's all so frustrating! It all started when I download a new addition of Firewall - I wish it would go AWL (not without but with)!
Still I have managed after  many attempts to upload this card (No25)
The Cuttlebug element of the card was to use the Spade Borderabilitie die. To make this more interesting, I have inlaid the cut out with a different colour.  Using a snowflake stamp I stamped the red card  with 'ink it up' and then dusted with gold perfect pearls.  
To finished the card - a tag with wire and beads.

Uploading this card as nearly finished me off!  I hope tomorrow whatever is going on STOPS!  Please....

Sorry to hear you've been having such problems - must be very frustrating. I'm glad you managed to upload this card, though. It's lovely.
