Well , as predicted yesterday I was stuck for ideas and carried on with the punched trees. I must admit I don't like them all and prefer the softer colours.

I looked through all my Christmas stamps and then looked through a whole lot more digi images and nothing inspired me - so back to very basic card making with a couple of frames and a punched tree.I love the paper from the top card ,almost vintage. I was busy re-sealing the deck out back yesterday and I was hoping to do a second coat today but it's raining - such a welcome sight - so
I'm off to the craft table - I have a funny feeling there will be more cards just like these - inspiration is in short supply.

About 8 years ago I made my visit to New Zealand ( a place I love to go ) . Driving around we came across a shop which was really a haven for quilters and had some lovely fabric . In a little corner were a few bits of crafts stuff and I picked up sheet ( 6 on a sheet) of these 3D handbags. Over the years I have only used 2 so thought it was time to dust them and get them on a card.
I love this top card the colours really work for me but the bottom one does nothing for me at all and I struggled to find the right paper.

Can I say a BIG thank you to my 81 followers who have not yet deleted me from their list. This last year has been a strange one - I have lost a lot of my bloggy mates due to divorce -moving house- and even death -along with my own little problems I have struggled to find any interest in crafting , in fact any interest in anything at all - I'm not sure if and when normal service will be resumed but I will try .
As you can see all 3 cards use a brown cardstock with blue and white.

Creative Craft Cottage - challenge 72 - Anything Goes - I had the idea for this card two weeks ago when the challenge was spots an stripes but just never got the time to make it - lucky it fits the theme this time around.

Penny's Paper- Crafty Challenge - 288 - Anything Goes
Incy Wincy Designs - Anything Goes
I took this pic on Monday when it was rainy and gloomy so the colours look a bit faded with the flash on the camera, I have'nt been able to turn it off despite pressing all the flash buttons on my camera.

I've just noticed I haven't removed the backing on the sticky tape across the bottom of the planter. We've had a lot of rain today and the sky has been heavy and dark which is not good for taking pics. The colours are sage green cardstock -very pale pink for the circle and the sentiment is made up from a sheet of rub-ons.
Feeling Sketchy number 149-

This one was stamped on plain white card stock - very smooth- the stamping came out very evenly.
Stamping Boutique have a lovely video tutorial for this stamp set - see it here - it's well worth a visit

About 8 months ago I won a prize of $30 to spend at a craft shop - every time I found a product I liked it was always out of stock - so my prize money sat there until a few weeks ago when I purchased Altenews 'Lacy Scrolls ' , this stamp set has 2 solid flowers and 18 leaf / scrolls . I used them to make both cards.

Scrapbook Boutique - February challenge - The mood board is an interesting change from the cupcakes, ( which I will miss -always so yummy to look at ) it was hard to decide which elements to include on my card -in the end I kept it safe and simple.

I have bought her a few cat toys so I hope we will see her personality come out over the next few weeks.
I shouldn't complain , but I'm happy to be woken with a cold nose or a soft paw pushed into my face.
