Hello Everybody,

It is so exciting with Spring approaching, all that wonderful green and newness everywhere.  Can’t wait.

So I made a card.

This is just a little chippie made by me, painted my favvie green and then sprayed with green and a little glitter sprinkle and loads of Glossy Accents, I love that stuff.

Love flowers and ribbon bows and love purple too.

Hope you like it 🙂

Hugs 🙂

My favourite 5″x5″ card.  Lots of white with a broad band of lace down one side and ribbon across the centre under die cuts, some flowers and a sentiment from Tim Holtz.

 

Hope you like it.

Hello Everyone,

I have made a card similar to this before, but I wanted to use washi tape on the banners and add the tower and some foliage.  Pretty happy with this one 🙂

 

Hope you like it.

 

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone!!

This morning I am Skyping with my friend Lisa and she is tired and we are not in a very creative mood so we did the Pinterest thing and displayed all our latest finds and then she needed to do some fact checking and I decided it was time to blog something I did ages ago with her in mind.  She loves bees so I know she will love this one 🙂

This card was made for one of the challenges in a Midnight Madness on Aussie Crafts Creations and Challenges where I admin and have fun  on Facebook.  Bit of layering, punching, die cutting and flowers, ribbon, blows bling and of course the bee 🙂

Hope you like it, easy card, just for fun.

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,

 

Cooler this weekend and a little wet, so I had to show you a card I made a few weeks ago on Skype with my friend  Lisa.

 

SANY2837

Such a pretty design, simple and uncluttered.  The pointsettis is  made using the Spellbinders die and a punch by Martha Stewart.  Border with Martha Stewart PATP set and stamp by Lucy’s stamps, one of my favourite Christmas stamps.

 

Hope you are having a great day and thanks for calling in.

 

Hugs 🙂

Hello Everyone,

 

Did you all get out and vote today?? What about the Pirate Party, I kept seeing reference to it on Facebook and thought it was a joke.  And then there it was on the Senate paper, haha, so funny, never heard of them.  Maybe I am not informed 🙂

 

So after voting today I decided that it would be a craft and movie day, so I have watched Hope Floats with Sandra Bullock, Tara Road with Brenda Fricka, I love her, one of my favourite British Actresses, and now I am watching 8 Seconds, yep all about cowboys, the rodeo kind!! Yeeehaw!!

This is a pretty little card that my friend Kath Vinson shamed me into making.  She also made me realise that the background die and the filligree bits are a flower, DUH I thought it was just 2 uneven  scallop circles, should I be ashamed?

 

Thanks Kath, love your work teaching me how to do things!!

Also set my sewing machine up permanently so I can  sew on my cards whenever I want to.  Oh and look I used those lovely lovely Fleur de Lis rectangles and made a flower with dies from Quickutz, and there is that flower again.  The paper I have used is from Graphic 45, I am finding they are my favourite, love them 🙂

 

Thanks for calling, hope your day is good.

 

Hugs 😉

Hello Everyone,

Well I did get another flower die, you just cannot have too many can you?  I mean, so many flowers, so many shapes, so much to do.

So I made a card or two to celebrate!!

SANY2008

How pretty is this?  Love these two colours together.  Everything is my favvie on this card, the ribbon, the bow, the pearls, the DTP inking, the PATP, doily, leaf (Memory Box Cottage Leaf), butterflies and the flowers.

SANY2007

It even looks fantastic in yellow, now I am not a fan of yellow, but this die makes yellow outstanding.  And those birds of course make the card, I love them (Marianne Creatables Die).

So here they both are. 🙂

SANY2009

I am thinking that these new dies are my new best friends.  And this flower die has taught me something, I can mix and match my flower dies and use some of the dies I have not had much to do with before.  See you are never so good that you cannot learn something.

Hope you like these as much as I do.

Hugs 🙂

Lauren
