Easter Card and More Paper!

It's a beautiful morning here in Sunny Dorset......no rain and the sun is out and.......it's peaceful!! The kids went back to school this morning! Both of them were grumpy and tired and Sam was very tearful. However, I know that when I put them to bed tonight, they will both go out like lights (hopefully!).

Now for the card. Managed to photograph it this morning. This one's for the Papertake Weekly Challenge and after receiving my papers from Blonde Moments, thought this set would be ideal for Spring. I also used one of my new stamps from Sugar Nellie which I managed to mount last week when I was having a sort out.




I was really out of my comfort zone with these colours....they're not ones I usually choose, however, because I liked the papers so much, took the colours from them. Image is coloured with Brushables and mounted on Bazzill c.s. Flower is also from Bazzill and brad from Poppicrafts. The greeting is a stamp......yes, the one I can never remember!!

Can you believe I actually got a parcel yesterday.....on a Sunday! I couldn't believe it either but apparently it was one which had been delivered when I was out on Saturday and my neighbour dropped it round. Here's what was in it.





I just love this little chap....he really is a cheeky monkey! I said last week that I needed more paper to give me some kind of inspiration but forgot just how much I'd ordered. There's still more to come!

Off to meet MIL this morning for a coffee before she goes on holiday and then back to some housework. Hope the sun is shining where you are and have a good Monday.

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.



Small Reindeer Bauble

I've been busy making a mess all weekend trying out different types of Christmas cards and other projects so thought I would share a quick project.

This bauble is smaller than the ones I made a little while ago - it will fit on a Christmas Tree whereas the other ones were for room decorations.
Hoping to have a few more projects to share with you very soon.
