~Feeling Sketchy #55 with punchies/die-cuts~

Hey Crafters! Here is the sketch over at Feeling Sketchy this week. 

The optional extra is to use punchies/die cuts. I have used a trio of flowers from the die-namics range. I also embossed them with the swiss dots folder and sponged some rose red ink. The sentiment is from Stampin' up, the paper is kaisercraft.

This is such a great sketch, would love to see you playing along with us this week! You have until sunday night to get your entries in :)

~Mojo Monday 287~

Hi Everyone! Stole some time away for crafting today... got a few DT projects in the works, but here is one I created for the Mojo Monday Sketch #287

Here is the card I made using echo park paper, Kaisercraft half pearls, buttons, a layered satin flower from a delightful friend Lizzy Hill, that I have made thru craft blogging, a paper rose, royal leaves from MTF die-namics and sentiment is Stampin' up. Also Spellbinders for the label shaped pieces and sponged around the edges with vintage photo distress inks. 
Most favourite card I have made in a long while :)

Ok getting close to tea time so I should go and make a start :) Thanks for stopping by today!

Feeling Sketchy #53

Hello friends, and happy Easter!

Just a quick post to share a card I created for this weeks sketch! 
There is an optional extra, which is to use 3 or more flowers.

As you can see I flipped the sketch on its side :)

I have been feeling so short on time these past few months, just waiting for things to settle down and I can find a bit more 'me' time. But it just isn't happening. So I have decided to step down from Feeling sketchy and pass the reigns over to Naomi, one of the lovely DT ladies. 

Well that's it for me today, thanks so much for stopping by!

~The Stamp Spot Blog Hop!~

Welcome to The First Stamp Spot Blog Hop!

This weekend, we'd love to share with you some inspiration for this months craft challenge (kids), and also a chance to win some awesome prizes!  

Here is a quick card I whipped up for a sweet little someone celebrating her 5th birthday soon :)

Products used: Country Girl clear stamp from MFT
coloured with Tim Holtz distress markers
Die-namics - flourish and numbers

At each stop along the way, read the post carefully, as each blog will have a fun question for you to answer... (ie. What are your families traditions at Easter?) Answer the question in the comments section to go in the draw for a prize from each blog! 

If you've come from The Stamp Spot Blog or Sandra, then you're on the right track! But if not, head to The Stamp Spot blog, and start from the beginning!

Next on the list is the lovely Melinda

My Question is....
which do you like best... Dark, white or milk chocolate?

My favourite is Dark Chocolate yum yum yum. 

I am a self-confessed choc-a-holic :)

Good luck!
