Spring Flowers

Morning Folks!
Can someone please tell me where the last week has gone? I think I missed it, I had great plans to get lots of things sorted over half term but not many of those plans have worked out!! Yesterday I was waiting for deliveries from Tesco, Amazon and Currys and I couldn't settle to do anything!!
Still on the plus side, I now have a lovely shiny new chest freezer in the garage - I just need to get cooking now!!

As it's Saturday (yep, really) we have a new challenge starting over at Sweet Stampin' which I think might cheer you up if like me you are getting sick of wintery, dull and drizzly days. This time we'd like to see some 


Something a bit different from me this week, I visited my sister last weekend and we were playing around with some of her Stampin' Up goodies - this is my attempt at painting with distress inks!
Not something I would normally try but it was quite fun!!

Thanks for visiting and I do hope you'll join us over at Sweet Stampin', there's a lovely prize from

to tempt you too!!

I'd also like to enter the 'Krafty Creations' challenge at Winter Wonderland.

Hot pants!

Morning Folks!
I'm sure you can't have failed to notice that there is some kind of romantic event next weekend!! We are joining in the fun over at Sweet Stampin' with our super easy and very appropriate new challenge:


This card is going to be for my husband, if he's good ;-) so I've kept it very clean and simple as he doesn't really do fussy! The papers are Forever Friends from my stash. The PB stamp is called Hot Pants - another one that has hardly seen ink in it's life. Sentiment and matching die from Stampin' Up. The little die cut hearts are from Memory Box, my last purchase before starting the stash diet at New Year!!

Isn't he cute! Also can you see the glossy accents on the balloon?

Birthday Sheep

Evening Folks!
How are ewe?? Yep, corny joke I know!
Just popping by to share today's make which is a birthday card for my sister who is mad about sheep!! Choosing the image was easy, I was lucky enough to win some images from Bugaboo last year and choose this one especially for my sister's card:

I coloured her up with promarkers last week but then lost all inspiration until I spotted this fab sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches:

I do love a good sketch to follow and ta da, here's the finished card!!

The sentiment comes with the image, I just cut it to fit the space. The purple dot paper is by papermania (a new sheet) but the other pieces are all from my scraps folders. The glittery card on the star die cuts is very shimmery IRL and I finished them with some stripey candy dots which if I remember right came from My Mum's craft shop.

As well as Tuesday Morning Sketches, I'd like to enter the challenges at:

That's Crafty - Animal Magic
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes
That Craft Place - Anything goes
