Sparkly Butterflies

I have another card for you today using my Sketch from the current challenge over on


And here it is



I have created this card using stamp sets Flower Patch and Painted Petals. I had a very old die from Stampin' Up - an embosslits die of various sized butterflies and I die cut them using silver glitter paper. There are teeny tiny gems in the middle of the small flowers and a large one on the main flower. Colours used are: Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Old Olive and Certainly Celery.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Boots Challenges - Bees and/or Butterflies

Craft Your Passion Challenges - Always Anything Goes

Crafting From The Heart - Challenge 113 Anything Goes

Thanks for looking today - see you soon xx

White Flowers

The challenge over on
has been extended for another couple of weeks so I decided to make another couple of cards using the current sketch


I also used the colour/photo inspiration from the current challenge over on


I love these anemone type flowers and they look gorgeous in white - the perfect starting point for my card - take a look


I used Stampin' Up's Blended Bloom and Fabulous Florets to make my flowers shading it with a Sahara Sand Marker. The large main flower also has some Dazzling Diamonds glitter added to it.
My stripes are Sahara Sand, Always Artichoke and Pear Pizzazz with a couple of gems added as a finishing touch.



I've had great fun in my craft room today and I made another card using the above sketch but that's for another day. Hope you all had a good weekend, I'm up with the lark in the morning for my first shift of the week at the Cancer Research UK shop. Hopefully when I get home I'll have time for some more crafting ....... or I may have to tidy up the mess I made today first!!!!
See you soon xx


Christmas Critters

It's time for another Christmas card and this week on 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown Fabiola wants to see....


Here is my card (my critters might just be a bit big though!!!)


And a close up of my main critter


I love to make this style of card and with this one I kept the colour palette quite limited: green, red and brown.
My stamps are a mish mash of what I have in my stash with a bit of Stampin' Up White Christmas thrown in for good measure - love how the banner fits perfectly on the reindeer's antlers.

Do pop over and take a look at the other critters on show on the challenge blog and I will see you soon xx

Having a Play

Found a rare few moments to pay lately so decided to make an easel card.
I also got some gorgeous free stamps on a magazines and threw those into the mix too - take a look




I used my Windows Framelits to cut the shape of the card and also embossed them with the Mosaic embossing folder.

This card was used to day as a birthday card for a very special Aunt - hope she liked it!

See you soon xx
