The Beautiful Willow with Champagne

Hi All

Here's my first card using this beautiful stamp - Willow with Champagne. I bought the stamp a few months ago and fell in love with it but it is the first time she had made it onto a card. As my stash is boxed up at the moment I just grabbed a folder of paper scraps that was on the top of the box. I tend not to use much green but I love the way the card turned out.

I have used a fabulous sketch by Bev on Whiff of Joy challenge blog and am entering this challenge.

I'm also entering this card into the following...

Crafty Catz Challenge - Summer Time
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Summer Days
The Stamp Man - Anything Goes

My Gorgoeus Little Monkeys

Hey All

As I am finally back posting again I thought I would add a few pics of my Gorgeous Babies, Caitlin will be 3 in October and Lewis will be 2 in December. I can't believe where the time has gone. They are my world and I wish time would slow down a bit...

Just off to give them bedtime cuddles. I love you Caitlin and Lewis xxx

Here's Another ;o)

Hello again,

Just a really quick post as I'm in the middle of cooking dinner then it will be the kids bath, story and bedtime. Caitlin has been a little monkey recently often climbing over the stair gate and coming downstairs until about 10pm. The Super Nanny stay in bed technique just hasn't worked for us. So any ideas???

Anyway on to the card. I have used the gorgeous Baby Girl stamp from Lili of the Valley and coloured it with ProMarkers. Papers are from scraps in my stash that I had been trying to use up before cutting into full sheets. The ribbon has been recycled as it came from so sample cards that were sent to my partners work.

I am entering this card into the following challenges...

KL Stampin and Scrappin - Ribbon
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Cutie Patootie
Practical Scrappers - Stash over a year old (I used papers)
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - Anything Goes

That's all for now but I still I one more card to post either later tonight or tomorrow.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.

Finally... A card :o)

Hi All

Well, it's been a while since I last posted a card. My stash is still all boxed up until we have had the new heating system installed the first week of August but I did find my camera cable so I could upload the 3 cards I made recently.

I am entering this card into the following challenges...

Stamp Something - Something flowery
Wild Orchid Challenge - Say it will flowers
Sir Stampalot Challenge - Lazy Hazy Days of Summer
By the Cute and Girly - Warm summer Days

I have used the very cute Daisy stamp from Funky Kits and coloured the image with Promarkers. The papers are all scraps from my stash and I have used my scallop circle nestabilites with gems to bling it up.

Hopefully I will get a chance later to add the other 2 cards which are also pink. Had a bit of a pink day and black day when I made them.

Hope you are all well and have a brilliant weekend.

Bug Hugs

I'm still here, just that...

Hi All

I hope you are all well :o)

What a week of poorly babies? How I feel sorry for them :o(

We've had temperatures, sickness and rashes, screaming at the Doctors (Caitlin and Lewis), not me, lol. Dr said it could just be a virus. I have not been feeling too great and now have a rash on my legs similar to my babies. What could it be?

I just wanted to say that I am still here but at the moment my craft stuff isn't :o(

Our Landlord is having a new boiler and central heating system fitted the 1st week of August and my craft stuff along with so many other things have had to be boxed up... I did manage to make 3 cards for challenges although I can't find my camera cable to upload them. It's in a box somewhere, but which box???

I also have another project on the go at the moment which is to give my lovely MIL (Helen) a craft room. She is on holiday at the moment and it is her Birthday at the end of the month. I hope I can get it finished on time so she can have her own little craft haven. I will post photo's once I have checked it is ok with her.

I have to say I have found it hard not to sit and play with the bits I am sorting :0) Might have to make a Birthday card using her things, lol ;0)

I know I am rambling as usual but I would just like to add a big Thank You to my lovely friend Tasha for my gorgeous Birthday card and gift, big hugs xxx

Bed is now calling for me so goodnight all and once things are a bit less hectic I will be back!
