2 cards 2 share...

Hi crafty friends, a quick stop in to share two cards I've made in the last few days...
first one is for Cardabilities sketch #25

love this pattern paper, been hoarding it for ages. Stamps are from Stampin' up.


This next one is for Card Patterns sketch #103 its their 2nd birthday blog hop!
Pop over for a chance to win every day!

I would have loved to stitch around the boarder of this one but I seem to be a bit short on time at the moment... sentiment stamp is from stampin' up.

Well short and sweet today! Hope your all having a wonderful (and crafty) week! take care xx

~Challenge #32 @ ECP~

Hi friends!
Our theme this week over at the Easy Craft Project Challenge blog is 
'Something for the boys'
~ any projects for or based on a male in your life (young or old)
We are being sponsored by the fabulous Stitchy bear digital stamp company
I used the big one image on a card for my Dad's birthday coming up... I know he will love it!

Pop over to ECP and check out the fantastic work from the other DT and enter your project for a chance to win! Thanks for stopping by xx

{August for me}

I saw an advert in a cardmaking magazine... I'm hoping to go down to the August show, John said April is a bit soon and Ella still a bit little... by that I'm hoping he means in August I can leave her at home with him! Is anyone else planning on heading to either event?? I would love to hear from you!!
Hopefully I'll be back with a card or 3 later today... take care xx

~friend to friend~

Hi! just stopping in with a card to share.
I've combined the fab sketch #102 from Card Patterns with the Colour Q Challenge #71
Didn't have all the right pinks in my stash and only one pink ink.. its a bit bright I think.

Cardstock, stamps, sentiment, ink and butterfly punch are from Stampin' up, and the button, twine, lace and rhinestones all come from The Stamp Spot online store. Also used my cuttlebug swiss dots folder to give the butterfly a bit of detail.

Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you here again soon! Take care xx

I'm still here!

Wow it feels like ages since I've blogged... or even crafted. I have no good excuse, I suppose I've been getting Aimee's things ready for school and going to bed a bit earlier, and I've been reading... Richard Carlsons 'don't sweat the small stuff... and it's all small stuff'
I found it a very good read if your into those sorta books :-)

So anyway I have... 2 cards to share.
The first is fairly plain and I feel like its lacking something.... I used the oh-so-yummy mint fudge inspiration over at The Lollipop Ladies. (They have a design team call out atm, please pop over quick fast and check it out!!)
 It's a birthday card for my little brother, he is turning 20 on tuesday.

My second card combines the fabulous colour challenge #127 at Color Throwdown this week and the equally fabulous sketch #24 from Cardabilities.

Can I mention that I won an absolutley amazing prize from the lovely Karan from cardabilities at the end of last year? Have a peek at the box of goodness!

I'll be paying it forward so keep an eye out for a candy give-away soon... just gotta get to the shops!

I also have some DT work to share from the new challenge at ECP!!! We are beong sponsored by stitchy bear stamps so to be in for a chance at the gift voucher pop over and check it out!
We have a fabulous theme this fortnight to help you get ready for valentines day, or you could make a special little something to tell someone how you feel about them for any day of the year :-)
even a scrapbook page? so back to the theme... if you haven't already guessed, it's LOVE!
I used some digital paper from stitchy bear stamps on my card...

Well I suppose thats it from me today. 
Thanks to you all for stopping in xx
take care!
