Easter Basket

Here is a little basket I have created to fill with Easter goodies for my friends Granddaughter.  I have chosen this CAS design using Washi Tape and patterned paper.  Unfortunately I don't seem to have an Easter sentiment stamp,( one to add to my wish list I think) so I have left it plain.

I am adding this little box to the Washi Tape challenge at Moxie Fab and the current challenge at CAS-ual Fridays.

Hope you all have a happy Easter Weekend and thanks for all your comments, I really appreciate them all.

Golden Wedding.

Its our next door neighbours Golden Wedding Anniversary at the weekend so I have made a card using my trusty Etched Flower stamp, its perfect for Weddings and Wedding Anniversary's.  I have stamped and embossed in Mirror Gold powder, not a great photo but the card has a lovely shine to it.

As the Simon Says Blog challenge is "Anything Goes" this week I shall enter this card.

Tomorrow is the last day of term and we break for two weeks holiday, I have lots planned so lets hope the weather warms up a bit!!

I have just realized its a week since I posted last, I have been a bit off colour this week, I just wish Spring would arrive I am sure its due to the weather.  We had more snow this morning and I need some sun!!!

Here is a card I have made with the better weather in mind, the post card stamp from Hero Arts is such a fun shape and as my Hydrangea stamp was still on my desk from my last card I decided to use the two together.  That's a strip of Washi tape along the bottom, I love the look it gives.

I am entering this card in the challenge at ABNH which is free style and also the current HA challenge.

Hope you are having a better weekend weather wise.

Pink Hydrangea.

Just sharing a quick card with you tonight, we have guests this weekend so not alot of time for crafting or blog visiting.  Its really cold here still and I needed to make a spring card to cheer me up.  Hope you are having a nice weekend.

CAS challenge.

I had a quick play last night and came up with this really simple card for the CAS-ual Friday, colour block challenge.  As you can see I have used my favourite stamp of the moment, the Etched Flower from Hero Arts.  The colour blocks are made with distress inks and a foam pad. 

Hope you are having a good week.

Spring is in the air!!

 At last I am beginning to feel better after my bout of flu and have started crafting with spring in mind!! I have made three cards for this months Hero Arts Challenge. This first one uses my latest favourite stamp the Etched flower and I have stamped it using my new Distress ink Picked Raspberry which is so pretty!  For the background I masked the edges of the card with low tac tape and stamped the Tweed Background with Old Paper ink.

 This next card is really simple, made with Hero Arts Jumping flowers and Distress inks.  I went to a craft fair recently and managed to get the Memory Box Tessatina die, I have been after it for ages.  As you can see I have laced some ribbon through it for a different effect.

This last card is also for the Simon Says challenge this week which is to use a "Bit of Green".  I really feel my mojo is back now and am looking forward to more card making this weekend as its supposed to rain both days :0(

Hope you all have a great weekend and thanks for looking!
