Flowers and Butterflies!

 Hi All

I have been playing with another goodie that my dear friend TK sent me-the fab embossing folder I have used in this card:

I just added some glitter card behind it and added a little butterfly on it, using the same card.
Thanks TK!

Have a fun day!

 Hi All

I actually had a play with a stencil-well I did this a while ago and today decided to make it into a card.

This is a STAMPlorations stencil that was given to me by the lovely Shery. I like it as it is one of the very few stencils that I can use!

I hope you all have a good day.

For Mum in Law!

 Hi All

I haven't been crafting for a while but my MIL goes into hospital in a few days and I wanted to get a card done for her.

A few weeks ago I got some goodies from my lovely blogging friend TK. I was overwhelmed with all that she sent me and got to play with them straight away.

The one I have used here is one that you wouldn't normally see me use in the way I did-with detailed colouring!

But I really enjoyed the colouring and loved the final look and even got our cat, Bubbles in on the edge-MIL loves chatting with Bubbles on Facetime so thought she would love to see him on this card!

Sorry for blurred photo but dull here and needed to get it photographed now!

As all the colouring was done, all I needed to do was add the sentiment, so it didn't matter that mojo is low...I could manage that!!

Hope you are you having a good day x

#403 CASology-Botantical

 Hi All,

Time for a new challenge at CASology and this time our cue word is:


Here is my take:

I looked up 'Botanical' and it is defined as a plant or an extract from a plant...well my mind went straight to GIN!! 
Juniper is signature botanical used to flavour Gin! And as my Family are lovers of Gin, this card could be used for any of them!!

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Elisabeth. Her blog is a joy to visit so pop on by and take a look at her wonderful makes!

Then pop back to CASology and have a look at how all out DT have interpreted this cue word and then play along!

I love to Stamp!

 Hi All

 I needed a card for my neighbour who is celebrating his Birthday next weekend. He is from Brazil and says he is always so happy to get a card from me as it is the only one he gets....so no pressure there!

A few challenges helped me out today to make a 'masculine' card....as I was struggling with blogland filled with s many gorgeous flower cards!

I used the sketch at CAS Colour and Sketches
The grunge splash idea and colours came from the mood board at AAA Cards-the top right hand picture. AAA are celebrating their 8th Birthday! Congrats and thank you for inspiring us for so long!

Enjoy the rest of your day x
