Hello bloggers!  Over at Happy Campers this month the theme is 'Flowers', so for my DT project I made this.

I go to a local craft shop, Sugar and Spice Crafts, once a week for a craft class and for the last couple of weeks we have been playing with the amazing paints and mediums from PaperArtsy.    I used these to decorate an MDF plaque I had in my stash.

The items I used are:

PaperArtsy chalk acrylics 'Beach Hut' (blue), 'Hey Pesto' (green) and 'Very Berry' (pink)
PaperArtsy grunge paste (used through the stencil)
PaperArtsy stamp set 'JOFY 11' (for the sentiment)
Spellbinders 'Sun Kissed Fleur' die (the small flowers, which are coloured with Promarkers)
That Special Touch Mask 'Chicken Wire'
Imagination Crafts Stencil 'Bird Cages'
Pinflair Buff-it 'Silver'
We would love to see your 'Flowers' over at Happy Campers this month.  The DT have produced some amazing projects, so why not pop over for some inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like it!

Hi bloggers!  What else to do on a cold, rainy day than sit and make a card!!  While sorting through my stamps at the weekend, I came across a set I bought a while ago from Dimension Stamps called 'Forever Floral'.  The set contains 12 flower stamps (one for each month) along with its name and the month (I think I bought it with a calendar in mind but never got round to making it!).  I coloured the stamp with Spectrum Noirs.  The die cut poppy is one of the Spellbinders Die D-Lites - 'Asters and Poppies'.

I am entering this card into the Stamping Sensations challenge - poppy photo inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like it!

Autumn Garden

Hello bloggers!  With the boys now back at school I decided it was time to tidy the growing pile of crafty bits which I have bought throughout the summer and not done anything with.  Lurking in this pile was a box of goodies I bought from The Hobby House using the £25 prize I received when I was the lucky winner of The Hobby House challenge back in July and I used them to make this card.

I would like to enter this card into the following:
