Hi bloggers!  Where did August go?  I can't believe the boys will be going back to school next week.

I recently bought one of the Art Pads ('Tis the Season) from Lili of the Valley and have used one of the beautiful images to make this card.  The flowers and leaves are Spellbinders 'Layered Poinsetta'.  The dotty card is Anna Marie Designs.  I embossed the card blank with one of the poinsettia dies.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend and have some sunshine where you are (it is glorious here).

I would like to enter this card into the Lili of the Valley's Ideas to Inspire Blog challenge - 'Make it Festive!'.

I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Campers DT Project - 'Use a Stamp'


Morning bloggers!  Wow, I am so grateful and excited to have been chosen as one of the new DT members at Happy Campers.  The Challenge for this month is 'Use a Stamp' (either rubber or digi, or both!).  The rest of the DT have produced some amazing samples so why not pop over to Happy Campers and take a look and enter your own stamping project!  For my card, the sentiment is a Clarity Stamp and the flowers are Marion Emberson Designs 'Sunshine & Flowers'.  I coloured the flowers with Sakura Glaze pens.

Am supposed to be spending the day at the beach today with friends but looks like the rain may have put a stop to that.  May have to do some more crafting instead!!

I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!

Morning bloggers!  Spent a glorious 11 days in Spain with the boys - brilliant!!  Came home to find out that my mum was in hospital - not so brilliant!!  Anyway, she is back home now so things are beginning to return to normal (or as normal as they can be).  Lying awake at 6am this morning wishing I was back in Spain I decided to get up and make my first Christmas card of 2013 (as you do!!) and here it is.  I stamped and embossed the IndigoBlu 'Large Snowflake' onto vellum and coloured the back with Copics.  The background is PanPastels randomly stamped and embossed with the snowflake.  The sentiment is from the IndigoBlu 'Here Comes Santa' stamp set.  I would like to enter this card into the following:
