Spring Has Sprung. Ish.

Hello. 

A card to make you smile today.  You can't help but smile when you see one of Dustin Pike's Spring Whimsy Gnomes. Although I've got to be honest, I wasn't smiling when I lost the first one that I coloured in and had to start all over again! Still haven't come across him!

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hello.

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.  

 Our theme this time is for a Special Woman.  Should have been Mother's day but I made an arse of the dates when I was setting the challenge themes!

I saw a Facebook post for a unicorn mum and I thought it would be a good idea so my plan was to use one of the Vera Lane Unicorn girls, then I decided she needed a glass of wine so I used Petite Syrah with a new head....

It's Nearly Christmas Eve..... 9 months to go ;)

Hello.

For the last few challenges over at Fezziwig's Festive Frolics, I've looked at the theme, had an idea and then the weeks have whizzed by and I've not made a card and not entered the challenge. However, the theme this time is Favourite Stamp so I decided I would definitely have a go.  I don't know if this is my favourite stamp but if I waited to decide, I'd not be entering this challenge either! 

So here he is, James, in the snow!

Insert Huge Rolling Eyes Emoji

Hello.

This is a card I made recently for a friend's daughter.  I say recently but it's taken me this long to get over it. I'm sure you'll know it's not my cup of tea but it's the birthday girl's favourite colour.

Pizza Anyone?

Hello.

I forgot I hadn't shared the card that eventually made the cut as my Valentine's card for Andy.

Pretty much every Saturday since the start of lockdown eleventy billion days ago I have made pizza for dinner.  It's got to be said, they have improved since those early days.  So when Vera Lane Studio brought out this set just before Valentine's day I knew I had to change my plans!

Hello.

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.  

 Our theme this time is a Spring Mood Board. This is a real challenge for me as I'm not great with spring pastelly colours!

Whimsy New Release Part 2

Hello. 

I'm back with another share from the new release time at Whimsy   this time using the Whale of a Time set by Crissy Armstrong.  I've used the dolphin but you also get a couple of whales in the set too.  I got out the gelli plate and some paints to make a background and used some bubble wrap to add texture.  I also used the lid of the paint for some bigger bubbles.  I wanted a bit of extra colour so some leftover stars from the Slimline stars die were perfect.

Whimsy New Release

Hello. 

It's new release time at Whimsy   so I have a card to share with you today.  I've used the fabulous Rocker Mae.  I've used the Slimline Stars die as a stencil (thought I'd bought stuff to make my own stencils recently but turns out I bought the wrong thing so I ended up just cutting it out with card and using washi tape to make sure it didn't move as I went over it with some distress oxides!
