A new chalenge at ECP!

Over at the ECP challenge blog, Lisa has set the theme of SNOW for this fortnight and we are lucky enough to be sponsored by Fairy Dust Crafts! Pop over and check out the creations from me fellow team members and maybe try on the theme for yourself!

I've used a cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder, some stampin' up and crete paper pattern papers, stampin' up felt flowers and sentiment, a leaf punch i got over at Bizzy Becs online store and curved rectangles and oval nestys.
Also a similar colour combo as in my last post if you have time to take a peek. I'm also entering it over at CPS #193 as I used the sketch as the template for my card.
Thanks for stopping by I hope you all have a fabulous and creative weekend! I'm using tomorrow to try and get a little more organised... wish me luck lol xx

~OTWC meets 2S4Y~

Sad to say it has been more than a week since my last post :( Well what can i say... Life has been busy!
Aimee's birthday is tomorrow! My baby is turning 6! Where does the time go? I decided to combine Kazan's awesome sketch from 2S4Y with the pretty colour combo #33 from Kim at OTWC. Pleased with the result!

The pattern paper, ribbon, felt flowers and sentiment all come from stampin' up.
The leaf punch I got at Bizzy Becs online store, butterfly punch is martha stewart, lables 4 nesty and also some cotton twine from my stash and silver rhinestones are kaisercraft :) oh and my corner rounder.

I've got another card using a very similar colour combo, please pop back tomorrow to see it!
Thanks for stopping by, and I'll leave you with a photo of Aimee and a ladybird, and one of Charlotte after playing out in the paddle pool last week xx

~2 Cards 2 share~

Good evening to you all out there!
I have two cards to share this evening, the first follows sketch #63 from Get Sketchy, combined with the gorgeous colour combo over at The Stamp Spot November Challenges! I used some festive Basic Grey paper for this one, and a felt flower that comes from stampin' up.

I also did some stitching around the boarder but it hasn't showed up very well, and it wasn't the right kind of thread, it kept breaking while i was sewing... very frustrating lol.

The Second one is inspired by the card sketch also in The Stamp Spot November challenges... I used some funky cosmo cricket paper from the togetherness range for this one... really stepped out of my comfort zone with the colours, and very pleased with the result.

Ok that's it for me, going to cut up some calico and do some sewing this evening, my John is snoozing on the couch, he spent 3 hrs driving to hand therapy today and then 3 hours back again. I had a few errands to run in town, so it's been a busy day all round.

Please check out the challenges I'm entering, they have great prizes up for grabs, so go get crafty!!

~seasons greetings~

Hi! Just a quick post from me this morning, I have a house to clean before John's parents come out to mind our kids so we can go to a neighbours birthday party this evening.

First up I'll share my DT card for the ~RED~ Challenge over at ECP challenge blog this fortnight, and I've used Kazan's fabulous sketch #65. I'm pretty sure this lovely paper is October afternoon, and the sentiment is stampin' up.

Here are some cards for my share over at The Stamp Spot, 3 quick and easy Christmas cards...

That festive paper comes from this crete paper 6x6 paper pad.
OK well I do hope you all enjoy your weekends! Thanks so much for stopping by xx
