Shades of grey X 2

 I managed to stamp this on linen look paper - not an easy job - I love the way it comes out after adding some shade.

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.

a butterfly 4 U

I stamped and heat embossed the butterfly -added a little colour and some gems - this is a big butterfly so I didn't want to add too much.

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.

birthday boat

The boat stamp is from woodware and the sentiment stamp is from stamp-it - I used Aquamarkers to colour the boat.

Passion for Promarkers - week 332 - papertastic - use 3 papers - I used 3 different papers to make the waves.I used Aquamarkers on the boat.

Little One

We have a new challenge at Let's Craft and Create - 110 - Lace and Pearls - I used an image from Meljens - the pink paper is a magazine freebie - I cut up an old birthday card to make the frame.

A card for any occasion

The papers and the flowers are a magazine freebie - the colours are a bit bold for me but I think the blue and dark yellow give a bit of life to the paper.

Tuesday Morning Sketch 337 - Another great layout to play with.

Camera shy

10 days ago we took 5 year old Bella  into our home - she has the sweetest nature but really didn't want me to take her picture - I think her previous owners have been quite strict as she doesn't sit on the sofas -  only on your lap when invited for a cuddle - our bedroom door is open but she doesn't disturb us during the night for a cuddle or to play .

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.
