Inkspirational #189

Hi All

Time for a new challenge at Inkapirational and this time our word prompt is:

Here is my take:

I used a previously made watercolour background and just placed this butterfly die-given to me in one of the crafty goodies gifts my dear friend Joyce sent me....she sends me so many beautiful packages all full of the most wonderful crafting joys! Thank you Joyce for your kindness x 

I love purple and yellow together so added a few enamel dots to finish the card.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very talented Milla-we are so happy she is joining us-check out her blog here and you will come back full of ideas! Welcome Milla x

Have fun x

Hi All

Popping in with a 'stamp and go', one layer card for you...well for hubby on his next visit away for work. Gosh I am prepared this time-card 2 done already!

I love the stamp Naptimes from Newton's Nook and I have used it already where I coloured each cushion and the cat.....yet to be seen as a future DT card. But this time I had this idea just to keep it plain and add the sentiment across it, using the hearts as I would normally my enamel dots.

My extra design touches were just the rounded edge and 3 little score lines at the top-can't see these too well in the photo but IRL they do add a nice touch. kind of card-one layer, stamp and go and now time for chores!

The Calming feeling of Love coming Home!

Hi All

I had fun making this card-after having no mojo for a while, I suddenly make 2 cards in 2 days!

Getting my cards ready to give to hubby for his next working trip away-this time Hong Kong!

I don't like him being away and there is nothing more calming to me than when he walks through to the door and is home again! 

I met Cornelia in London a few weeks ago and she gave me this set of stamps from Unity 
I knew exactly what I would use it for!

I was going to go Black for the map but the colours at Less is More this week inspired me to be a bit more adventurous-2 colours I would not have thought of using myself. The sentiment I just popped up.

And I do love that Winnie and Walter frame.

Have a super day x

One layer AAA

Hi All

Firstly I must apologise for not visiting you all as much as I like to-the stresses of life has got in the way-I am sure you all know how that goes! Also to all of you that I usually email with-I have not forgotten you and will be with you soon.

I also have had no mojo for crafting but when I saw the 'one layer card challenge' at AAA-I knew I would have to join in-my fav kinds of cards.

I also used the twist of 'Black and White'

Super CAS but I love it!

Have a fun week x

How to stay Calm!

Hi All

Quickly popping in with a card for the 'Calm' challenge at CASology

What better way is there to keep calm than shop for shoes!

Shona is GD there this week and when I saw her card here it reminded me of a stamp set I had from The Ton. Thanks for inspiring me Shona x

So off to stamping I went!

I didn't want to use the same sentiment that Shona some stamp surgery sorted this out!

Oh....just go and buy some will feel 'calmer'!!
