Button it up

Good Morning Peeps,

Saturday morning and I hope it will be a good one for you, hope you are all well and having warmer weather than we are here.

We have a new challenge for you over on My Time to Craft where our theme this week is:

Buttons or Sequins


For my card I used an image from Paper Shelter which I won in a challenge recently, I coloured her with Copics, my papers are from My Mind's Eye and First Edition.  The sentiment is courtesy of Hannilie (Desert Diva) and I added ribbon and buttons.  Sorry about the poor quality of the photo, looks much better irl.

Please take a look at the challenge blog and see the great inspiration from the design team.

 I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - Birthdays (27-04)
The Paper Shelter - Add a sentiment (26-04)
A Gem of a Challenge - Ribbon and/or Lace (29-04)

Daisy, Daisy, Daisy

Good Morning Peeps,

Saturday morning and the sun is shining, we have the local Chocolate Festival on this weekend so if the weather keeps good I may take some of the girls to have a look around.  

Today we have a new challenge starting on My Times to Craft, our theme is:

No Designer Papers


For my card I used a plain piece of card, embossed down one side and sanded it to show the pattern, the image is a Penny Black stamp, coloured with Copics and I added two pieces of ribbon, some pearls and a sentiment.

If you need some inspiration please take a look at the challenge blog where there are some great projects from the Design Team.

Happy Easter

Good Morning Peeps,

It's so long since I posted or done any crafting but life just got in the way, my MIL has been quite poorly in hospital but thankfully is now back home.  We then had three days away in Stratford-upon-Avon for hubby's birthday, the weather was absolutely fabulous and we had a great time and recharged our batteries a bit.  Our youngest son Dan had his birthday this week and so last weekend all the family, 15 of us, had a lovely meal at a local Chinese restaurant to celebrate the two birthdays and I managed to get a new photo of my six gorgeous granddaughters.


 This week I have been trying to get back into crafting and have made this card for our new challenge at My Time to Craft where the theme this week is:

Woodland Animals or Easter


Image - Digi Stamp Boutique 
Coluring Medium - Copics
Papers - First Edition and stash
Ribbon, embroidered flower

Please take a look at the challenge blog to see the wonderful creations by the Design Team.
