To the Sweeties

Morning Folks!

It is a very sad post from me today as I have decided to step down from Sweet Stampin'. 

I think some of the Sweeties may be a little confused given the recent communication difficulties and problems with vanishing posts. As I wave goodbye I'd just like to ask you all to please re-read my opening sentence carefully. I have decided to leave SS by myself. There are many voices in my head at times, but as far as I am aware, no one else has suggested that I go anywhere or tried to shove me off a cliff. I think even I would have noticed … 

I have left simply because after witnessing recent events, but playing no role in them,  I sadly had no wish to stay.

The services of Miss Marple will not be needed.

I am happy in my own little place, but please know that my Welcome mat is outside and there is a doorbell at the top of my blog if you are passing. 
It has been so much fun being with you at SS Towers and something I shall miss greatly. I wish you all (Debbie included) happiness xx

Shower of Flowers

Afternoon Folks! 
Where has Spring gone? It's really grey and quite chilly here in Hampshire. 
I had great plans to do some serious tidying in my room today but pretty quickly I got distracted. I came across this super cute PB stamp that I must admit I had forgotten about. It seemed like a pretty good image to use for the 'Showers' challenge over at Penny Black on Saturdays so I made a card instead of tidying! Still I think this card will come in handy for some birthdays that are coming up!

The balloon is paper pieced with a scrap of glitter paper. The other papers are from LOTV and craftwork cards. Sentiment is LOTV and the image is coloured with promarkers and a touch of stickles in the flower centres.

I'd also like to enter the challenges at
Fussy and Fancy Fridays - Female birthdays
MAWTT - Spring Flowers
I love promarkers - Pastel colours
The Ribbon Girls - April any image challenge
I made the top 3
Thanks for visiting and for any comments you leave. 
Have a good evening!

Hippo Birdie Tag

 Morning folks!
 Long time no see I know, but I've been away for a few days in Amsterdam which was wonderful - such an interesting city and lots to do - I want to go back again. I've also been doing a bit of scrap booking and attempting to declutter the house, I've made a bit of progress but still a way to go yet!

Anyway, I actually popped on to show you my little creation for the new 'Tags' challenge over at Sweet Stampin .
 The stamp and die set is from Lawn Fawn and was very quick to colour and cut out! The papers are all from my scraps box but the amount in there doesn't ever seem to go down - could it be breeding in there when my back is turned?

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
Alphabet Challenge - D for dots
Simon Says Stamp - Let's do the Polka 
Ribbon, image, sentiment

Thanks for visiting and
Bye for now!
