Good Friends Make You Beautiful

Morning.. Happy Sunday! Lots of snow overnight here.. enough to want to stay inside and craft all day!  I have some DT card to make this morning so I'll be locking myself in there but before that I have a card using a fab sentiment from LOTV and Floral border die from Craft Stash.


Hope you have a great Sunday!

Bird House

Morning, So no Less Is More today.. I'll leave that one until tomorrow when I have time to think about it! I have another card for you today using the new stamps from Craft Stash's Apple Blossom Collection.  This one uses Ornamental Garden and you can find it HERE in the shop!

Stamped onto water colour card I used my Gansai Tambi to colour in this sweet image...

Crazy day ahead including a visit into the Manchester and birthday dinner for my brother tonight.

Hope you all have a fabulous Saturday!

If Friends Were Flowers

Morning.. Today I have a card using the new Apple Blossom dies from Craft Stash which are available now in the store HERE! These are great quality stamps and matching dies for a fab price. I used the rose and the matching die on todays card!

The sentiment is also from the same set and it's finished off with a little edging die from paper smooches.

So glad it is Friday.. It has been a really long week and I am off to Mannheim with work next week so lots to do over the weekend.

Hope you all have a great day!

The Sky Is The Limit

So Saturday was so productive, I have another card for you today using some new stash .. one of the free Sale-A-Bration products from Stampin Up.. This is "The Sky Is The Limit" and you get it free when you spend £45 (that's enough of a sales pitch lol).  As soon as I saw the sketch from CAS(e) This Sketch this week I knew this was perfect for it!

A simple piece of soft sky card stock finished off with some little cloud die cuts.

Here is the sketch from CAS(e) This Sketch #154

Hope you all have a good day...

Cat Cuddles

Morning... I have a really simple card for you this morning using one of the pre-Christmas releases from LOTV, this one is Happy Cat.  Don't you just love these sweet kitties!

This card was for a friend I just needed to write a little note to and send a virtual hug through the mail!

Hope you have a great Monday!

Happy Birthday

Morning, I had the most constructive crafting day yesterday I have had for more than 12 months.. Think I managed about 12 cards over a couple of sessions (with a little help from Rachel over Skype!!).
I'm out of birthday cards, so you may see these pop up a lot over the next few weeks. This one is more suitable for a teen and I used one of the new Stampin Up goodies from the Spring/Summer catalogue, Timeless Textures.  I think this one may be as popular as Gorgeous Grunge!

Inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #218

I'm hoping to sort out my supplies list again at some point today.

Since it's raining, another day in the loft is probably in order... Have a great Sunday!

Mr & Mrs

Morning.. So finally managed a little crafting this year.. Been a busy week and even though I had two weeks off over the holiday season I did zero crafting... I had other things to concentrate on and didn't force myself to craft.  I'm hoping 2016 sees my mojo come back in full force (although with how many mistakes I made on this card I'm not sure).

I thought I would start off the year with Less Is More and it's one layer week... I can't remember the last time I made a one layer card that is for sure!!. The theme is flourishes so as I go through the mass of unused stash I decided to use some CBS... this one is Magnolia Blooms... Love these flourish leaves!!

I have a load of DT cards to make today to get ahead... nothing like a bit of pressure! But hey, it's raining, again, so I can justify not leaving the loft I think!

Have a great Saturday... I'm hoping to be back soon!
