Sketch Saturday #44, Penny Black Saturday #42

Hi All

I managed to combine to challenges with this card; Penny Black Saturday Challenge #42 Think Spring so I chose this PB stamp with the daffodils and tulips, (my tulips that I planted in the autumn are just starting to pop through the ground, I can't wait for them to flower, sadly I couldn't plant tulips as the deer would eat them) and the sketch I used for this card came from Sketch Saturday - Sketch #44 . I coloured the image with my watercolour pencils. DP is a DCWV stack pack. Flowers are punched and added stickles for a bit of bling.

Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments.

Double Dutch Challenge

Happy Friday everyone, I have to go and do the weekly shop later on this afternoon, so thought I would do a quick card this morning!

For this card I have used sketch #14 from Double Dutch Challenges it was a really easy sketch to follow as it gave the dimensions to use, so all in all it came together pretty quickly. The image used is a swap I received from Linda (Thanks), I popped him up and sat him on ribbon that I bought from Michaels the other day for only 50 cents!!! for a whole spool!!! The ovals I cut with my cricut and just had to add some bling!!!

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Happy Mail

Wow did I receive happy mail or what!Another blogger, Linda over at Linda's crafty creations and I decided to swap some images, she sent me some the other day and I could not believe her generosity and then today I received some more in the post Just look at all these!!! can you believe how generous Linda is!!!!! I have never received so many swaps in all my life!!!!! there were so many that I couldn't get them all in the picture. Linda thank you so very much.

I also received an email today from Scrapbook com thanking me for posting a link to my Lollipop Flower Tutorial and if it would be OK for them to publish my tutorial in their articles section on scrapbook com, of course I said yes, in fact I was thrilled that they asked!!!! they asked me to send my details and that they would get a prize box in the mail to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How cool is that!!!!



I wanted to share a layout I did a couple of months ago but wasn't able to share at it was at the LSS that I used to design for, I have now got it back so can share it with you. The only problem is I have forgotten what products I used so can't tell you!!!! The photo was taken in a store at Disney Land, Paris,in 1998!!!!! I think that this has to be one of the oldest photos I have scrapped, which just goes to show how behind I am with my scrapping!!!!

Thanks for looking and for all the lovely comments.

Mothers Day


Well I think I have been MIA long enough!!!! Life got in the way, I have been ill for almost a week with an awful cold verging on flu, I had terrible earache that kept me up for a few nights and to be honest my mojo went walk about for a little while too LOL. But I am back now!!! and feeling much better

It will be Mothers Day in the England on Sunday 22 March, so I managed to get my cards done on Sunday and posted them on Monday. I kept these really simple as I was in a rush to get them done. The House Mouse images are a wish rak sent to me by a very kind lady on SCS. For some reason this photo is really washed out but I can't redo them now as they are on their way across the Atlantic!!!!

Thanks for looking and whatever the weather have a great day.

Recipe: DP is paper studio, alphas cut out with my sizzix using sizzlits - Noveaux, hearts punched with MS punch, ribbon, prima blossom, coloured image using watercolour pencils.
