I am enjoying my last day off today with some chore and hopefully will squeeze a little crafting in there somewhere!

We are on to

Using the Hardwood background stamp
 a quick thankyou card using very vanilla and blushing bride. The sentiment is fro one big meaning and I love this swirly greeting. I set it off with some petite petal flowers another retiring item that unfortunately has sold out now too...will miss it.

I also made a birthday card in pool party combo using the same sketch just added a lace doilie in the background

Happy Easter Sunday to you

I am continuing this sentiment with this card as I am off to Sunday lunch with the family today and am giving this to my Mum with some flowers. 
Last of the

using flurry of wishes but I stamped a decorative edge to the card rather than snowflakes and added some diecut flowers colour washed with flirty flamingo

  A lovely sentiment from Suite sayings - a retiring item!

Just lovely.

Wishing you a lovely day whatever you are up to.

Good Morning to you

I hope you are all enjoying the Easter weekend and may I take this opportunity to wish you all Happy Easter.

I went off on a bit of a tangent from the alphabet journey of late so want to head back to that as a lot of my stamps sets are retiring...boo! I have had to skip a few as they have sold out already.

So continuing with

using Foxy Friends stamp set I made a quick congratulations card for a friend who has just found out she is expecting...so cute.

A quickie today this is my simple march swap for a group I am in on facebook, the theme was trees

The sky background is watercoloured and the trees are sparkly although hard to see in the photo. Simple sentiment which I thought was perfect for a swap

Hi all

In case you missed me I have been away on holiday for the past week, I had fully intended to schedule posts for the week I was away but I just ran out of time with all the prep for a family holiday!!

We had a fantastic time in Majorca with lovely weather shame to be back in the cold here but at least a long bank holiday weekend is on the way for me to catch up on my crafting fix.

So on to my card for today...my brother's wedding anniversary card - 21 years he has been married yesterday and this lovely project is what I made for him and his wife.

I used the first sight stamp set in a subtle crumb cake, mint macaron and Bermuda bay colour scheme with a hint of soft sky and some natural twine

Hope they liked it.

Hey crafters

We had an early Easter celebration at the weekend - half of the family will be away on holiday still so e had our get together plus egg hunt early and thankfully we had a lovely day weather ise too.

As we were early I had made little easter treat bags to pop some euro's in and they turned out cuter than I had imagined.

The little sheep had wink of stella on but just could not get a decent photo. They were well received anyway.

Morning and happy Sunday to you

I hope you are all enjoying the day so far...crafting and family time on the cards for me today although its wet play as raining again.

Anyway I batch made some birthday cards so I always had one available in an emergency - my memory is elsewhere recently and have been forgetting all sorts of things birthdays included :-/

I have been trying to sort some areas of my house and found a few crafty items these base cards and ems included so I worked with hat I had on the table at the time which turned out pretty well I think. Colours combo of soft suede, flirty flamingo and blushing bride and used hardwood and petite petals with the sentiment in a stitched shape die, as always for me simple and sweet.

Good morning crafters

Another monthly challenge starts today over on notjustcards sponsored by fabrikafantasy.

We are using a monochrome theme and I chose to use the gorgeous air fairy image on a SU designer paper background I coloured her in using promarkers and a normal pencil but made her light up with the fab SU wink of stella pen which I just LOVE!!

I added a sprinkle of twine for some texture but just look how sparkly she is...beautiful
