Lilac & Lemon Pixie

Hi Folks!

Just thought I'd sneek this one in rather sharpish for the current Papertake Weekly Challenge - Lilac & Lemon. Only just got this done in time.

This little cutie has been patiently waiting to be inked up & I finally got a little bit of 'me time' this afty to mess with my crafty goodies :)
Supplies: C.C. Design Swiss Pixie Birgitta stamp from Skattykats and coloured with AQUA promarkers
Backing Paper is Chatterbox Eclectique 'Sunny'
Stamped sentiment from Hero Arts Clear Design set 'Whoo Loves You'
Cardstock and embroidery thread is ages old and from my personal stash... oh and nearly forgot the smattering of diamond stickles around sentiment and on wings.
I'm quite struck on hand stitching at the mo, why? I do not know... I do find it very therapeutic & relaxing, though :)

Hope you all have a great evening.

I'm A Happy Bunny - Finally!

Happy Mums Day! Hope you all had a fab day.

This is the card I made for my mum, what a kerfuffle I had trying to make this work! I'd coloured this lovely bunny stamp from LOTV a few days ago and was patting myself on the back for being ahead of myself for once... Off I toddle thinking, put it together with some pretty papers - no problem.... how wrong can you get? I could'nt get anything that seemed to work and turned my house upside down in search of the elusive backing papers! Finally laid my hands on some and set to matting and sticking. My finished card stood pround on my worktop and photo shoot followed and then the trouble started, again! Crikey! has anyone else had trouble editing yellow tones alongside pinks and green? Nothing I tried seemed to depict the colours properly.... after much cussing and near tears I decided to give up and make do, so here it is. I must admit all the fretting faffing was worth it in the end and I am a 'Happy Bunny' once again :)

I'm entering this for this weeks sketch challenge over at Papertake Weekly and

Supplies: LOTV 'Spring bunny with daffs' grab it here, promarkers, computer generated sentiments, prima flowers, bling cardstock in pink and green and double-sided chatterbox papers from the eclectique collection, 'Sunny' & 'Just Be' on special offer here

Think Spring SKTS Challenge 6 & Stampavie

There is a challenge over at Skattykats with the chance to win these papers, blooms and ribbons. Hop on over there for a nosey.
Stampavie have bi-monthly challenges & their challlenge is also all about 'Spring' you can visit it here
Here's my card for both cahllenges. When I think of spring there are many things that relate to it but, just recently I've been thinking of growing my own veg and there are a few things that can be planted out in spring, like radish, lettuce and herbs so, I thought this pretty Sarah Kay stamp fitted with the theme. You can get the stamp here
Supplies: Craftwork Cards blank, promarkers, Sarah Kay stamp - Collecting her vegetables, MME Wild-Asparagus papers, ribbon and prima flowers from stash, liquid pearls in petal pink and pastel chalks.
Hope the spring sunshine is gracing your skies wherever you are :)

Make It For Mum


Mums Day is not far away... looking forward to that one, it does'nt matter what I get or don't get, I just love Mothering Sunday as it reminds me of why I wanted to be a mum ... Lol! Just remember that, next time your kids have dumped the whole of their wardrobes contents on the bedroom floor, or told you with half a days notice that they need a costume running up for the school play, or stood there with the 'Kevin & Perry' stance & told you, 'It's so Unfair!' before stomping off in a stroppy huff... oh yes, this applies to girls too you know, not just the boys!

Heh-heh! Would'nt be without my mischievious little poppets, not for the world... I love them to pieces, really ;)

Here's my card for the latest Skattykats challenge 'Make It For Mum' which can be found here You can find some of the products I used for this challenge here

Supplies: Craftwork Cards card blank, Hero Arts Sparkle Clear stamps 'You're the Best,' MME 6x6 Wild-Asparagus Papers, Promarkers & Cherry Arte Chipboard Alpha Sheet.
