Happy Easter

Happy Easter to my lovely blog followers.

Hope you are all enjoying spending time in the sun (if you have it) and with family and friends and loved ones. If you are enjoying a peaceful time crafting then well done to you whatever you may be crafting.

I've been preparing another card for an entry into a local card making competition and this is my creation this month:

I have used the following ingredients to make the card:

1.  7x7 card base
2.  Digital Images purchased from Pink Petticoat called 'Fluffy Chicks'
3.  White card 
4.  Patterned paper printed from Polka Doodles CD called 'Sundae of Seasons'
5.  Images coloured using Graph It pens - Mimosa, Mango, Anise, Magenta
6.  Edges of the card inked with Versamagic Chalk ink in colour Tea Leaves
7.  Fun Flock attached to the chickens in colour Lemonade Yellow
8.  Lemon with white polka dots satin ribbon

I would like to enter this card into some web challenges too and these are:-

1.  Allsorts Challenge where the theme is Birds & Feathers 
2.  Sister Act Card Challenge where the theme is Anything Goes
3.  A Creative Romance where the theme is Eggcellent Spring

It's Another Win !!!

Good morning everybody and welcome to a brand new week.

Is it going to be a good one?  Well I think so.

I’ve kicked off the weekend with some good news when I found out I have won my third card making competition at a local craft shop.

This is the card I entered and you can read all about it in a previous blog post.

I’ve been to my local craft shop and already picked up my winnings and thought I would share some photos of them.

They are:

  • Craftwork cards Card Candi in the colours Felicity and Clarissa
  • Kaisercraft Stamp called Windsor
  • Personal Impressions Stamp called Zendoodles Hearts
  • Creative Expressions Stamp called Mr Bear
  • Woodware Stamp called Bubble Butterfly
  • 4 sheets of scrapbooking paper (2 sheets of each) by Graphic 45 called Botanical Tea and Sweet Chamomile 

I can’t wait to start creating things with them and already have a plan for the papers to make some lovely pictures for our bedroom. 

The stamps will be used for future stock on the website so keep your eyes peeled.

Hope you all have a good week.

Take care
