Leisel

I was having a look in my box that I store my rubber stamps and came across this little cutie. I think she is called Leisel by CC design. She is just perfect for my Aunties birthday card as she enjoys gardening.

Hubby & I are going to Norway at the weekend to visit our lovely friends. May Britt is taking me to her local craft shop so I am really looking forward to having a spending spree.

I am entering my card into the following challenge:-

Wedding Acceptance

Roger & I have been invited to a wedding and this is our acceptance card. It's been a while since we went to a wedding so I am looking forward to it. It will also be an excuse for a new dress.

I've had this Magnolia stamp a while and never got round to inking it up, shame on me. The designer papers are also by Magnolia.

Thanks for looking

Valentine


Good Evening,

Hope everyone has had a good weekend. I managed to spend some time in my craft room this afternoon and created the above card. I really am unsure about this card it probably because it is not your traditional valentine colour scheme but I wanted a more masculine look.

Dare To Dream

Good Evening,

For my card I have used a couple of the new Lilli of The Valley stamps. I fell in love with the cute little fairy blowing a dandelion and the sentiment stamps are just excellent value.

The designer paper is from a K&Co paper pad designed by Brenda Walton so pretty and a bought in a sale.

Chinese Tilda

Good Evening,

Hope everyone had a good weekend. I originally bought this stamp with my sister in law in mind as she is from Hong Kong the perfect stamp for her. At the weekend I bought Papermania Summer Bloom paper pad in a sale and thought this particular paper complimented Tilda.

I haven't added too may embellishments as the paper is just so pretty shame to cover it up.

Thanks for looking

Gorjuss Girl

Hello All,

Hope you have been making the most of the last day of the Christmas break. I have enjoyed Christmas but I have to say that I am looking forward to going back to work and life returning to normal.

I have used one of the gorgeous Gorjuss girl stamps, just love these stamps. This card has been a real labour of love didn't matter what I did I wasn't happy with the way it looked.



Over the long Christmas holiday we decided to give our bathroom a new look, really pleased with how it has turned out.

Have a good evening and thanks for looking.
