Spoonfull of Sugar - For you....

I have made this card for this week's challenge over at a Spoonfull of Sugar which is to make a card using punches or die-cuts. I have used my new leaf punch and a circle punch to make the inverted corners on the matting.

Sketch and Stash #8

I'm back!! Normal routine has resumed, visitors have gone and back to school for DS. It was a great Easter break though seeing family and friends and good weather too! which made it even better!!

So I've managed to make a card today!! Hurrah!

I was inspired by Lisa's card from the Sketch and Stash DT to use this stamp from my new Magnolia Spring kit. The image is coloured with promarkers and highlighted with a white pen. The cute butterflies are from the same kit and the papers are Making Memories.

The little dew drops are new also from Patties Pretties at

I should be able to do a few challenges this week :0) so I will be back soon!!

Easter wishes....

Well I managed to get an hour last night to make a Easter card! It all came together pretty quickly as I had the cute image already coloured in and I used the fab sketch #7 from Sketch and Stash for my layout :0)

The new stash element for the above challenge is the image which I stamped at a friends, and the Woodware punch (Grass) which I used for the leaves around the prima flowers.

The papers are American Crafts (floral) and a couple from the Daisy and Dandelion paper pad.

Thanks for looking and I wish you all a Happy Easter :0)

Hectic Week!

Well all good intentions to fit some crafting in this week has been and gone LOL! I have had a hectic week ferrying DS to football training everyday and getting the house all spick and span for my mum and dad, who arrived yesterday and are staying until Easter w/e in my craft room ie: the spare room :0)
So I cant see much crafting going on next week either!!! But I have my fingers crossed I might get to make one card, I miss crafting sooo much!!!
On the plus side we had a lovely day out today to Braemar in Royal Deeside, caught a glimpse of Balmoral Castle on the way and some spectacular scenery over the mountains and a yummy lunch out :0) so that was lovely.
Be back soon xx
