Die Crazy!!

Another busy week with very little crafting time.  I have however made this quick card for the Die Cut challenge over at The Simon Says Wednesday Challenge,  I decided to make another Shaker card using some fabulous little heart shaped sprinkles that I have had in my drawer for ages.  They seemed perfect for an Anniversary card so here we are.  The die is from Memory Box its called Ringo Tile and I do seem to be using it a lot lately, it really is very versatile!

Hope you are enjoying your week, I am looking forward to Friday when we break from school for half term!!

Water Colours!!

Again I have been inspired by all the lovely water coloured flower cards I have been seeing in blog land and had to have a go myself.  I dusted off the old Hero Arts Hydrangea stamp and coloured it with some distress markers.  I then stamped onto Water colour paper and blended the colours with a paint brush.  It really gives a delicate look to the flower.

Hope you are having a good week.

Spring Flowers!!

Another card inspired by all the gorgeous flowers in the gardens where I live, I have embossed the Etched Flower in white and then watercoloured with my Distress Inks.  I have added some stitching with my machine and am entering this in the challenge over at Virginia's View Blog Challenge.

I am also adding it to the Simon Says Spring Flower Challenge.

Have a great weekend.

I thought I would have a go at making another Shaker card, there have been quite a few around blog land lately and I have been inspired!! This is quite a simple one with no stamped images at all!!  Very unlike me!

I love the finished effect, so sparkly and pretty!!

Have a great week.

Spring Flowers.

I saw this new challenge  at AtoZ Scrapbooking mentioned on the Hero Arts Flickr page and thought I would have a go, the theme is How Does Your Garden Grow.  At the moment my garden, and my neighbors gardens are full of beautiful spring flowers, so I pulled out my Hero Arts stamp "Blooming Meadow" and inked it up with my Distress Markers.  The dies are from Simon Says and Memory Box.  I decided to add my coloured panel slightly off centre to show off the Memory Box die.

I am also entering this into the May challenge at Stamping Sensations Blog."Anything Goes"

Here in the UK its been a long Bank Holiday weekend and the weather has been fabulous, so I am off now to sit in my garden!!

Engagements and Weddings!!

I am really busy at the moments making up some cards for my cousins, daughters wedding,  she has given me a list of various Thank You cards for the wedding party to include Bridesmaids, Best Men, Mums and Dads.  They are fun to make, but they are keeping me busy.  I have had time to make this quick engagement card however to take to a party tomorrow.  I have kept with a CAS card and just added the sentiment to the inside of the card.  I love this new Memory Box die called Ringo Tile, its so versatile!!
I am adding this card to the Simon Says "Anything Goes Challenge".

Here in the UK we have a long Bank Holiday weekend and for once the weather looks to be good, I am hoping to do some gardening and plant up some vegetables!!

Hope the weekend is good where you are.
