Sweet Strawberry

I wanted to make a card with a strawberry theme, so I had doodlebug strawberry paper Magnolia strawberry stamp with little Tilda perched on top, I just had to add a butterfly and some stickles. Coloured with Copics.

What a fab day I had yesterday, I made a last minute hasty decision and went to the Make it show at Farnborough. Thanks for a lovely day Fiz. Well the roads were clear and made it in record time, apart from the rain! Parked straight away right outside with no queuing and had a brill time and spent far too much. Just wait till you see little Warren Craftwork cards new bunny release, I just fell in love with him and what the wonderful Julie Hickey had done with him, such a clever lady. Also as usual the lovely Jackie was bringing to life the little Lili of the valley characters. Oh and had to bet a buggy ride back to the car with all the shopping....... As it is nice and bright today I must fly and make the most of it and do some colouring. Take care and happy crafting.

Pretty Fairy

I just finished this card for one of my work colleagues and decided to enter it for the Lili of the valley  challenge week 84 - my favorite colours I am very fond of these fairy die cuts, even tho I do feel its cheating a tad!
I used a Cuttlebug alphabet for the lettering and a ex success daisy punch with some craftcreation sparkly dots in the centre of the flowers.

I had a fantastic day at Chickenshack yesterday and it brightened my day to see all my lovely crafting buddies. It just went too quick and as usual did not get much achieved. But came home with some lovely inspirational ideas which I will be posting soon, I hope. Hope you all have a fab week and happy crafting xx

I am still here sorry!

Oh dear I can not believe we are in Feb already, where is this year going and the weeks are just flying by. I have been making quite a few birthday cards but just not got round to adding then to my blog but I promise I will. Oh great the cat has just come in an climbed over me in my white top with muddy paw prints, more washing. Why oh why cant they learn to wipe their paws when they come in.... Oh and while im on the cat Daisy in particular this time do you have to bring a mouse in and loose it, yes I now live with two cats and a mouse. I just hope they find it soon. Any way on to my cards, I do love this little lilli of the valley chap for a mans card, I have also coloured one it in sepia tones which I will show later.

Oh and a special Birthday as one of the girls in the office has reached her half a century and deserved a special card so out came the roses again. I love making these and they are so effective.

I wish the rain would go away and we could have some of the lovely sunshine back we had earlier in the week!  it does make us all feel so much better. Happy blogging xx
