Up and Away

Just time for another post and feeling very inspired as we are having some gorgeous weather.  I even managed a little trip out on my bicycle today.  Its been a few months and I thought I would make the most of the weather.


I have  made a little card inspired by the challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog.  Which is to make a card using a hot air balloon or just a balloon.


The digital image is from Fresh Brewed Designs and the papers are from Pink Petticoat.  I wanted to make a male card as I never have any or find very little inspiration for mens cards.



Party Time!!!

I can't believe how quickly my daughter's birthday has come around.  I have made a start on her party favours and as she wanted Doc Mcstuffins I have made some little bags with plasters on.

 
The template is from My Time Made Easy called Grab Bag.

 
The little plaster embellishment is a free printable from Disney Family.

 
I have just added a little glitter to the hearts

 
I have also made her a little banner with some free printables from Peonies and Poppy Seeds.
 
Also I wanted to make some favours for the boys that will be coming to her party and I don't think they would approve of little handbags so I just made some clear treat bags.

Spring Time!!!

I have made this very sweet and simple card and I thought this would cover Easter/Spring.  I am not very good at clean and simple but wanted to try.  I do love the colours from the inspiration photo at Cupcake Inspirations.


and here is my card:

 
The backing paper is from My Time Made Easy called Spring Has Sprung and the digital image is from Pink Petticoat which has now been discontinued but there are loads of other lovely images to download.


I have then added some crinkled seam binding and some paper roses.

Just Pretty

My little girl is starting to get excited for her birthday and she has asked for a Guinea Pig.  So we have started to make arrangements for our new pet. But I bet mummy and daddy end up looking after it!!! I have found some great information on the RSPCA website which I am sure we will refer back to a lot.  My husband and I as children never had guinea pigs we have always had dogs and cats, although my husband did have a ferret once.  So I think I am excited too.

So in between tidying up the garden and looking at birthday and guinea pig supplies I have made a little card.

 
The sentiment is from My Time Made Easy from the Chase Your Dreams digital stamp set.
The ribbon and lace are both from  The Ribbon Reel.

 
I have made a little organza and paper flower and the centre has a little polka dot brad.
 

and look at the gorgeous inspiration from The Shabby Tea Room. This weeks challenge is to create a card/project using white/cream, pink, green, flower, lace/ribbon.

Happy Mothers Day

Just wanted to say Happy Mothers Day to all.  We are sharing Mothers days with my Mother in Law, and my husbands Nana and Auntie which will be lovely, all generations together.  Apart from its not my Mother Day yet as in France we don't celebrate it until May. 

So here is a card I have made not a Mothers Day card but a card still for someone special in your life.

 
The papers are from Prima called Pixie Glen and the little bird cage is from the Chatsworth Collection by Papermania.  I have stamped the image in back then added clear embossing powder over the top with a little glitter.

 
Happy Mothers Day!!!!

I need more time on the computer!!!

Well I am at in again, two posts on one day.  When my husband is out at work I am in his office putting all the blog posts on at once as I know as soon as he gets back I won't be able to get on it.

So here is my second post of the day this time something for the teenagers using the same papers as before.

 
The little stamped sentiment is from the set called Printery from Prima and I can't remember where I got the digi from as its been sat on my computer for a while.

 
I have used a little glossy accents on the windows and lights and coloured the image using promarkers.  I have also used a silver pen on the badge, wing mirrors and bumper.


The sketch for this card is from the challenge at Sketch Saturday.


Dreaming of Summer

After the rather unusual warm weather my thoughts have turned to summer.  So with thinking about long hot days spent in the garden or at the beach here is my summer inspired card.

 
The image and the papers are all from Pink Petticoat but I am afraid the ice cream digis are no longer available.

 
I have then used my promarkers, glitter and some glossy accents.  To finish I have added some little flowers and a star.

The layout for the card is taken from the challenge at Mojo Monday.



Well I hope the weather improves again as we have family coming to visit from England, come on sunshine we want to see you again.
