Well not been doing much crafting the last 2 weeks, not been feeling to great but hopefully after spring cleaning, and I mean spring cleaning my craft room it will motivate me again. bought all these chest of drawers from charity shops so got all my papers sorted into colours all my punches into some of the drawers and also my stamps so I now know where everything is... so no excuse now. Hope all my crafty buddies are all managing to make some cards will try and pop over to see all your blogs over the next couple of days. Aud

Made this card for a pearl wedding anniversary, used Hero arts background stamp and embossed it with seafoam embossing poder then distressed it with bundled sage. Used SU bridal papers cut with nesties and hero arts stamp stamped with the distressed ink and embossd with clear powder, MS heart punch and lace and pearls from stash. The card actually looks better the camera flash seems to react against the papers.

Busy busy busy, did this card for my friend for a new baby girl, used LOTV stamp coloured in with prisma pencils, papers are wild rose studio, ribbon from simply create, typed out the girl wording on computer then punched out with woodware circle punch. Used MS punch, and candy from stash.
I think someone must have taken my photo last friday night for this one, this was how I felt but I hope its not how I looked, I was at an engagement party and I think I celebrated with one too many. Really like this image can't remember where it was from the papers used are tickled pink from minds eye just love these and they are versatile too, used MS punch, ribbon from simply create, gems and candy from stash.

Right ladies am I a neep or what I bought this stamp at simply create on saturday and the green papers because I saw the penny black challenge was green and I don't know why but I thought this was a penny black stamp and it wasn't until today after I had made this card that I realised it is an inkadinkadoo so yes youv'e guessed I can't enter the PB challenge but by luck its coming up to St Patricks day so there are loads of other green challenges I can enter. So I stamped the image with versamagic sage ink then embossed with clear powder , I stamped this image a few times and cut out the flower and the butterflies and layered them up. Papers are bobunny from Simply create and english rose from kaisercraft, pearls and candy from stash. This is a card for one of Robbie's mums friends for her 80th birthday.

This is the last of my cards for forty's birthdays in the meantime. Used art deco for this one and mounted it onto wine card and gold card, used backing paper to match, used MS doily punch and ribbon is from my stash the photo hasn't really came out well. Wasn't quite sure about this card, thought something wasn't right but not sure what. Did it twisted easel and cut out sentiment with nesties and made a gold bow. Next card is for new babies, but will start them another day off out to an engagement party.
Here is no 2 of my 40th birthday cards still one more to do. Papers are from my mum can't remember what she said they were called. Cut out the 40 and shadowed it with my cricut, and layered them up. Flowers, pearls and gems from stash and used the new candy from craftworks.
Off to try and prepare for card no 3.
Used LOTV squares for this card cut out with a round nestie and then the lace circle nestie papers are from my stash can't remember the name of them. Used x cut punch and candy and gems from stash as well a nice quick card for my friends wee girls to give to their sister.
Everybody on the look for 40th birthday cards this is also my sisters 40th as well this year and I think this stamp is very appropriate for her as well. Stamp from bugaboo coloured in with prisma pencils glitzed the glass with glamour dust although you don't really see it. Paper from simply create bo bunny , used xcut punch for the borders and layered them up. Nesties for the sentiment and gems,candy and pearls from stash I have a few 40th Birthday cards to make so watch this space for more.

Well Wednesday already and into March where is the time going. Well not much been happening in the craft room today been busy catching up with paperwork and housework but I can tell you I would far rather have been crafting. Started this card for a friend who's birthday is next week I'm using Kraft card and a LOTV image, the card is for a male and drives a wee green tractor so thought the image was appropriate. Then at long last I got my fiskars continuous stamping wheel so I will get a play around with it after im finished my other card. Off to work just now, to get more crafting pennies...

This is the 1st of my easter cards I.ve made this is for a young girl and the other ones are for boys so its certainly a challenge as I said before we don't really celebrate easter but enjoyed making this card, nice soft pastel shade of paper they were from Carol (thanks) just came in handy at the right time. Used MS punch.The image is a daisy & dandelion decoupage that I actually found in my stash. mounted image onto the same papers but different colours and cutout with nesties. Pearls and candy from stash. The new spotty candy just goes perfect with theses papers.
They variety is the spice of life well im certainly getting that with my cards just now so many different ones, so here is an anniversary card for an older man to give to his wife. Image is from my mum, backgroung paper is from simply create, punched with MS punch at the top this photo doesnt show it off very well as its got a bit of a glare as has the image as its printed on photo paper, pearls and candy from stash.
