The perfect package

I don't know about you but where oh where did the summer go! I am sick and tired of dodging all the wet stuff falling from the sky and skipping the puddles, and the evenings are getting chilly too.

A nice little card quick card made with the lovely Bo Bunny paper, the stamps are Hero Arts topped with a hand made flower and the Martha Stewart punch as a border. The flowers were coloured with my lovely new Inktense pencils.
Next  a  box to go with the card, again with a hand made flower, using three flowers folded in half then stuck together.

And finally a tag to match to finish off the perfect package.

Rumour has it we are not going to have so much rain for the bank holiday weekend! Keep your fingers crossed. We will just have to wait and see. I do hope you all have a lovely bank holiday weekend.

Ok I can hear you all say that word does not describe Sarah! Well correct it was the name of the class we went on  with Jane Gill at the Glitter pot the other week. The most beautiful cards I have made in a long time and they were all so quick to make.

The flower stamps were from the Hero Art cling stamps, one was a single flower and the other was part of a posy.

Stamped on to white card with black pigment ink then embossed with clear embossing powder.

The paper is from the new Papermania range and I also think is very good value for money. Some Papers seem to be getting very expensive lately, especially when you just buy it to stroke as most of us do! Oh I can not cut that up its just too nice.
And I have saved my favourite until last. I hope you like these as much as I do. Have a lovely week and hope the weather is kind to you all. I have noticed our lovely daylight crafting evenings are drawing in rapidly..

Lilli of the Valley v Hobby Art

Happy Sunday to you all! Another week has flown by and again and been very busy, hopefully a quiet week coming up.
I had to make a man card which I think we all agree we hate to do. This little  Lilli of the valley image I think suited perfectly. Coloured with copic's using a old sketch not sure which challenge it was from but it was an old one. Papers were Craftwork cards.

Perfect for a belated birthday, which seems to fit me very well as I always intend to make the cards in time but they usually end up late, I think I will be repeating this card rather a lot.
We made this at a class with Helen Meighan and I just love it the cute elephant stamp is from Hobby Art. Papers are Daisy Bucket and the flowers were one of my many punches I think it was a Woodware one.

This image shows the card which inserts into the pocket. The pocket border was Martha Stewart.
Hope you all have a nice week and I hope to be back soon with some more cards. Thank you for your lovely comments.

Flower Spray

What a funny day, the weather is well wierd! Had three days of crafting since Thursday so lots to show, but keeping it all a secret as I cannot be seen to be over bloggiging or you will expect it all the time. 

This was a card designed by Charry who tutored a class at Crafts u Love  4th Birthday last week, I dont think anyone managed to finish the card but I bought mine home and was determined it would get finished as it was so pretty.

Various punches were used some Leone-Em and some EK Success flowers.

Have a nice week , thank you for all your kind comments they do inspire me to keep going. I will be back soon with some more!
