Hi All

Time for a new photo challenge at Inkspirational.

Here is my card:

And here is the photo that inspired this card:

How gorgeous are these cupcakes? The ice-creams and balloons are so beautiful and would be amazing for a baby shower!

So much to choose from here so I just picked out the balloons.

Using the following from CAS-ual Fridays:

I made cards!

Hi All

I finally made some cards!
I was inspired by the Twofer Card Challenge 'Garden' and used this floral sparkle wreath die to make 2 different kinds of cards. This die was a pressie from teamie, Jill at Time Out-thanks Jill!

Here are the 2 cards together-sorry for poor photo but light was not so good!

The first card is a Birthday card where I used the wreath off the edge and just popped a sparkle flower in the centre (a pressie from teamie Anila at Inkspirational-thanks Anila). Added the enamel dot for some colour:

And the second card I went with Christmas, using the floral wreath as a Xmas wreath! Also there are, what look like snowflakes, all around the wreath. Just die cut it and added mirri card underneath! And a label with a touch of the mirri card!

The first card I will also enter into:

And the second I will enter into:

Have a fun day!

Time Out #139

Hi All

Time for a new challenge at Time Out and it is our 'Inspired by Words' challenge.

Here is my card:

And here are the words:

Here I used the stamp set Book and Film Stamp Set by our fabulous sponsor Catherine Pooler

I know there is so much to be inspired by in this phrase and as I was looking through the stamps sets at Catherine Pooler my eye was caught by this movie and books set and my original ideas were forgotten! 

My mind went to the word 'Happy' and what makes me happy.....and guess what movies do!!
Hubby and I spend as much time as we can going to the movies and I have a very special friend who loves doing the same with her this is her 'Happy Birthday' card!! I find it funny the way inspiration takes us!

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Claire. Claire has supported Time Out for many years and we love to see her creative designs in our gallery. Her blog Life On the Scrap Heap is a delight to visit and pop on over there to check out the amazing cards.

Then back to Time Out to see what Claire and the DT have made to inspire you!

Enjoy x

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.

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!

Entering into:

Day of the Month Card Club-hug your cat day
AAA Cards-one layer not using twist.
