Anyone for cake?

I'm back again today with another cute stamp from Sugar Nellie :)
This little hedgehog is called 'Sweet Success' and is perfect for birthday cards with the yummy cake image!
I have coloured the image with promarkers and prismas and added glitter to the cake, button and sentiment. The papers are 'Love Letters' by First Edition.
I have followed this week's sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 - #4
I got Top 3 last week using sketch #3 - Thank you xx
I am also entering my card into the following challenges ~
Cute Card Thursday #305 - So Sweet
Creative Knockouts #21 - Birthday Time
Passion for Promarkers #232 - Anything Goes.....
and the Sugar Nellie Facebook Challenge - Glitter :)
Thanks for looking xx

Sweet Delia.....

Well I'm back as promised with my 1st card of 2014 :)
I must say I thoroughly enjoyed doing a bit of colouring again!!
It's grey and wet outside so thought I'd go for fresh, spring colours and purple & green are one of my favourite colour combos.
I went through all my challenge links in my sidebar, a few have closed :( but I found lots of challenges to enter, so I am entering my card into the following ~
Sugar Bowl Challenge #111 - Fairies/and the Sugar Nellie Facebook challenge - Flowers
Creative Knockouts #19 - Buttons
Charisma Cardz 5th Birthday Celebrations - Birthdays
Allsorts #241 - Ribbon but no bows

Hope you like my interpretation of the sketch :)
Thanks for looking xx

New Year, New Start.....

Hello everyone,
Happy New Year!! Hope you had a lovely Christmas and a fabulous New Year!
One of my new year's resolutions is to get blogging again, sharing my cards and ideas with you all and entering challenges again :)
To get me started I have had a big tidy up and clear out, I now know where everything is.....almost :)
I use part of the spare bedroom so like to keep it tidy and hidden away for when we have guests. I would love a room just for crafts and I have spent many hours on Pinterest looking at gorgeous craft spaces!!
Anyway I thought I would share a few photos of my new organised craft space.......it wont stay tidy very long!
My expedit units filled with my dies, promarkers, stamps, embellishments etc.

My bureau/desk where I stamp and make my cards........handy because you can close the desk and hide away all your clutter :) The draws have my cardstock, card blanks and pencils in and I keep all my new purchases in a draw till I use them!!
This is the inside of the sliding wardrobe in the bedroom! No clothes.......just more crafting supplies!!
Big Shot, punches, paper pads, ink pads, glues/tapes, buttons and ribbons and more stamps!
I also have my pin board which is filled with lovely cards from fellow crafters.
Hope you enjoyed a peek at my craft areas......would love to see all your craft spaces :)
Thanks for popping by and visiting after I've been away for so long!!
And before I go a big 'Hello' to my new followers xx
