Morning Folks!
Yay, it's the weekend!! I'm hoping to grab a bit of crafting time, I've had Flu and didn't even make it into my craft room for over a week - not good!! Just popped by this morning to share my card for the new challenge over at Sweet Stampin' which is to


Have to admit my choice of stamps for this challenge was severely limited, most of my sentiments are teeny weeny! I bought this Woodware stamp last year, because it made me smile but this is the first time it has been used. It's hard to see from the photo but it's been heat embossed in metallic copper. The papers are Swagger by Fancy Pants - this one always reminds me of pyjamas! I decided to make an easel card for a change and cut out the sentiment with an x cut die to make a sign. Finished with a few eyelets and a brad!!

Going green ....

Morning Folks!
Hope everyone is OK? I'm waiting for the warmer weather to arrive.... in the meantime I've got quite a bright and cheerful card to share today!
This week  at Sweet Stampin' we are celebrating St. Patrick's Day with the theme:


I have to admit that green isn't a colour I normally reach for but I found this piece of flowery paper in my scraps folder and it really inspired me. The cute 'Girl Turtle' is from Bugaboo, coloured with promarkers. All of the embellishments are pretty old too - felt flowers (Queen & Co), pearls (Ebay), and the hessian ribbon and pink flowery braid were both from my stash.

Love the cute expression!

Thanks for visiting today and I do hope you'll be able to join us over at Sweet Stampin' - we are sponsored this week by Flat Friends.
