Mother's Day Card

This is the Mother's Day card I made for my Mum. I set myself a challenge of using a die I've had for a while and haven't used yet. In this case it was the border die which I cut out of green dotty card stock.
The inside is from another die set which I have used a few times. The Happy Mother's Day stamp is an old one too and the little butterflies are from a set called Royal Flutter By Spellbinders.

Mum's Birthday Card

It's my mum's birthday today. One year left before the big 70! I made this card for her using the butterfly die she bought me for Christmas which I love. It also fits nicely into the Cute Card Thursday Challenge which is "One Word Sentiment"

The paper used is a lilac pearlescent one by Craftwork Cards, it's really pretty but doesn't come over that well on the photo.

Three 5th Birthdays

My youngest daughter has a birthday party to go to this afternoon for three of her friends from school. Two of them are twins and the third is their best friend so they are having a joint party. I asked them all what their favourite colours are, Ellie said red, Olivia said pink and Carmen said silver and gold. I didn't have any silver card so I went with gold.


The wings, tiara's and wand tips are all made with glitter card which of course gets everywhere. I know how fairies feel now, I'm leaving a trail of fairy dust wherever I go! 

I hope they like them. 
I'm going to enter one for the Cute Card Thursday challenge which is "Anything Goes". I don't normally enter ones where it's "anything goes" as I don't really feel like it's much of a "challenge" I have that particular "challenge" every time I start making a card. I prefer something that takes me out of my comfort zone and feels like its challenging me to do something different, but in the spirit of trying to get back into blogging and posting more regularly and getting used to how it all works again after such a long time away I'm going to make the exception just this once. :-)

Flower Challenge

I have made this card for my youngest daughter's friend at school who will be 5 towards the end of this month. The Moving Along With The Times challenge is 'Flowers' so I thought I'd use my Sarah Kay Stamp which has lots of pretty flowers on it and teamed it up with some flowery paper too.
You can never have too many flowers in a flower challenge!! :0)

Another thank you card. Not sure who this one is for, I just wanted to use my new butterfly die that my mum also bought me for Christmas. This time I double died the Thanks sentiment on to cream and then orange card and then layered them to make it pop more.
I'm not sure I did too well on the colour scheme but I do love the butterflies.

Happy New Year

I made this card card for my mum. She bought me the square vine die and the mushroom die for Christmas and then gave me the "Thanks" die as she had two. The Gnome stamp and die to cut him out is from a set I got free with a magazine and is coloured using Promarkers. I think it all goes really well together. Just added the little butterflies to bring all the colours together and fill in some of the white space.

Happy New Years Eve.

I thought I’d start the year off well by joining in with the Less is More challenge. I’ve not done any blogging in years so hopefully this might be the start of me getting back into it now my youngest has started school. Their challenge is Birds/Feathers.

Not sure if this has enough white space to qualify but I enjoyed making it anyway. 
The bird stamp is one that came free with a magazine and it's coloured using promarkers. 

Ha ha, except it really is that long since I've done any blogging I've actually managed to enter the wrong competition and done the one that's just finished rather than the current one. Ha ha ha!!! Oh dear, off to a great start!! Oh well at least I've made a card. :-)

Xmas Card

I've finally got round to making some Christmas cards. This one is using a Penny Black stamp (always a favourite) and is coloured with Promarkers which I'm still getting to grips with.
