Wheelbarrow ride

Morning Folks!
Goodness me, I think I've lost a week somewhere, half term is nearly over and I seem to have spent most of it with a paint roller in my hand - I've decided I'd much rather be playing with my promarkers!!

Bet you can guess the new challenge starting over at Sweet Stampin today???

Yes, you got it:


Here's my card which should be appearing on the Antiques Roadshow because it has so many old items on it!!

The stamp is by HobbyArts and is one of the first ones I ever bought about 8 years ago, I haven't used it much but being sentimental I can't part with it either!!  The backing papers were a free gift with a scrapbooking magazine - they're by DaisyD's  from their CHA Summer 2005 collection! The sentiment is computer generated using Bookworm font.

Look a that little face looking up at Daddy Bear - Awww!

A Rose Bouquet

Morning Folks!
Hope you're having a good weekend!!
I've got a special card to share this morning, I was invited to do a guest DT spot over at Crafting by Designs and of course I said yes!! 

Thank you so much for inviting me to join you ladies!

So here's my card for the Anything Goes Challenge , I'm going through quite a CAS phase at the moment so no embellies on this!! The papers are all from my scraps box, I think a combination of Dovecraft and Papermania but I'm not completely sure because they are so old!!

I bought this cute Penny Black hedgehog stamp at a car boot sale last weekend and he is appropriately called Sweet Hedgehog. I used promarkers to colour him and some Wink of Stella on the roses but it is not showing up too well on the photo.

Thanks for visiting and don't forget to pop over to Crafting by Designs if you have time!
