Wedding card topper
I've been a busy bee today. Made lots of toppers which hopefully Ebay will allow me to list. They have been messing me around recently but hey-ho, that's the way it goes sometimes. Anyway, this topper is made from pearlescent white card and silver mirri, with a 5" square doily. The car and tin cans have been cut on my Cricut. Ribbon lace is from Crafty bits and pieces and flowers from WOC and my stash.
In need of a challenge now so off to have a mooch through the blogs!

Girly pink 16th birthday card

This is a quick one I was asked to do last night , for tomorrow! Good job I had the day off work. The original sketch had shoes as the theme, but then I found the butterfly paper in my stash, and went with that instead. I've come to the conclusion that I will NEVER have the tidiest of craft rooms but I love it as it is, because everytime I have to look for something, I usually find something else I'd forgotten I had. I call it BURIED INSPIRATION!!
Anyway, I think it is now wine o'clock.
Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Pretty In Pink Butterfly
Just had a play this week with my doiles and pretty pinks! Came up with this! The butterfly was is from my Cricut "Art Nouveau" cartridge and I think it makes a beautiful centrepiece. I've layered fairy print paper ( can't remember where that's from, sorry!) , with cream pearlescent card and a 5" square doily from Kraftyhands . Flowers are mainly from WOC and my stash.
Hope you all enjoy the weather this weekend.....gardening for me tomorrow. :-)

Milton with poppy strikes again!
I love this stamp, it's probably my favourite, mainly because of the poppy! It's a Wild Rose Studio stamp which I bought from The Glitter Pot , coloured in with promarkers. The base card is made from supplies from Whichcraft, and I've raided the christmas stash again for the paper, Papermania Henbury Lane Poinsettia collection. The lace is lovely as it has irridescent pearls running along the top, that's from Crafty Bits and Pieces . The flowers I've used are white carnation, red poppies (of course!), white sweetheart blossoms and red roses, all available from Wild Orchid Crafts. I've added loops of red ribbon either end of the flowers, and the lace bow with heart gem is from my stash. Sentiment also alas from my stash!
Hope you like him!
I will be entering this in the Wild Orchid Challenge "Bingo" (if I can work out how to do it!).
Big hugs

Happy Mother's Day everyone!
This is what I found outside my front door this afternoon. Made by my daughter Poppi-Rose and her best bud Tiegan, from grass, leaves, and stones. Think they've certainly got the crafting bug!

The Happy Couple
My first attempt at a shaped easel card and I'm chuffed to bits with it.
I've used Sarah Kay's " Happy Couple " stamp, coloured in with promarkers. The pink patterned paper is a download from Cuddly Buddly, most of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, with a few from my stash. I've added a little sparkle with Stickles to the bouquet and the flowers in her hair.
It took a while to get this one right, but I'm glad I persevered!
The weekend has now turned wet. Hey-ho! Best weather for card-making!

Good afternoon. It's a bit breezy outside but at least the sun is shining! Here's a double concertina card I made today using another of the new Sarah Kay stamps "Katie". The card base is from Whichcrafts, the paper is from Kate Knight's Spring Fling range and flowers from WOC.

Finally got round to this one, having had the idea floating round in my head for days.
I've used a base scalloped circle card from Whichcrafts and one of the new Sarah Kay stamps "Alice in morning". The check paper is from my stash, doily and flowers from WOC and sentiment from Cuddly Buddly.
Hope you like it!
Enjoy your day.
