Bucket of Sunflowers

Hello to you all, well, what a long week, I am so desperate for the weekend to get here. Am looking forward to some Jubilee celebrations tomorrow at the school I work at-a special lunch followed by a street party and lots of activities-should be fun!!
My card today is from a stamp which my friend gave to me during a clear out of her stash-I really love the image and thought it was about time I made a card with it. I coloured him with my promarkers and the papers are a mix of the new Lincoln Linen and a freebie from a magazine.
Wishing you all a Happy Jubilee weekend.

New Wee Stamp

Hello all, wow, what a gorgeous weekend it has been-we don't get many of those do we?
It hasn't stopped me from spending some time indoors and crafting though!! I saw the new Little Peggy digistamp yesterday from Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet and she is just so pretty I had to buy her-then of course, I had to make a card with her!!
I used my blue paper pack by papermania and coloured her with some of my new promarkers (am getting a bit addicted to them too, they are just SO good!) I punched some little butterflies and flowers and added pearl gems to finish-hope you like her.
Fingers crossed the weather stays-have a good week!

Sunny Friday

Well the weekend is finally here and it looks like it will be a lovely sunny one at last!  Am planning a bit of craft time and a bit of time to sit in the sun in the garden-who wants to do housework when its so hot!!
My card today is using the Wee Florist digistamp by Sylvia Zett coloured with my Promarkers. I have also cut a border with the Martha Stewart edging punch and embellished with flowers and gems.
Hope you have a lovely restful weekend.

Well I am really excited today, I took in some of my cards to keep at work just in case of emergencies and one of the ladies I work with asked if she could have one....then promtly came back for another three!! It's so nice when someone says they like what you have made.
My card today is from Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zett and is called Wee Hope. I have coloured  her with my Promarkers and used some flowers and pearls from my craft stash.
Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!!

Leaving card

Evening all -hope you're having a lovely evening. I have had a lovely one-all the family out and about doing their own thing so I grabbed a bit of peace and quiet and decided to have a play with the free papers which came with my last Creativity magazine. The colours went so well with an image of Paddington Bear which I had recently coloured so I thought I would make a leaving card for a colleague at work.  I coloured him with my Promarkers and and think his colours match the jubilee colours so well.
Hope you think he's cute too!

Morning all, well couldn't seem to lie in this morning despite it being the first weekend lately that I haven't had to get up for anything!
Am hoping for good weather this afternoon as I'm off to Leeds Castle for a special May event they have on.
I made this card for my sister in law's birthday and used the new Lincoln Linen paper pack from Papermania. The stamp is from Wild Rose Studio and she is coloured with my Promarkers and has pearls and a flower from my stash-hope you like her.

Afternoon everyone-my favourite time of the week, just finished work and no more until Monday, Yay!!
After making what I thought was my brother in laws birthday card I did have some craft time last weekend and have changed my mind. As he is a huge Crystal Palace supporter I made him this card coloured in the new team colours-I really hope he likes it and that you do too!!
Have a good weekend!!

Saturday 12 May 2012

Well how lovely to wake up to a lovely sunny day-it makes you feel so much better than all the rain, lets just hope its here to stay for a few days at least!! Have just put the car in for its MOT and phew, thank goodness it passed!!
I am planning a bit of craft time this weekend to make my sons birthday card, know what I want to make so just hope I find the time to do it.
I made this card for my brother in law last week using a stamp I have had for ages and teamed it with some papers from my stash and a little fish stamp from the daisy and dandelion range-but am now not sure it is right for him-will have to see what else I can come up with!
Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!!

Birthday Hedgehog

Hope everyone had a good Bank Holiday weekend-typical British weather didn't stop me going to a local village fair and finding the BEST lemon sponge made by some lovely ladies in aid of their local scouts!!
I haven't had so much time for crafting lately but I have managed to make this card for my neice's birthday inspired by a little hedgehog I have got living in my garden.
I used my favourite Penny Black stamp coloured with my new purple Promarker to match some papers I had in my stash-hope you like him!!

Sleepy bunny

Evening all, after having a quick look through my folder of pictures I came across this cute bunny image which I thought would be lovely to send to my neice for her birthday.  A crafty friend gave me this stamp when she was having a clear out of her craft stash and I said I would love to give it a new home.
I seem to have a thing for pink and green at the moment so teamed it up with some green and pink papers and card and used my new Martha Steward edging punch-hope you like him!
