Pastel Millie...

Hi everybody...
Hope you are all having a good weekend so far...In between some cardmaking and washing, I have been outside helping my seven year old ride her bike. She's got the peddaling but forgets to steer. There's only a couple of small trees on the green but she did manage to smack into one of them...with all the other children and me shouting.."Mind the tree!" She is fine, by the way!
My card today is totally cute Millie in her garden.

The Colour Create Challenge is to use Pastels so I used lilacs and pinks on Millie and some lilac gingham paper taken from my new Wild Rose Studio pack..

A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge is to use Ribbon, Pearls/Rhinestones and Flowers. I punched out lots of daisies and used flat back pearls for the centres and my ribbon is some white organza tied in a bow.

Just about to tuck into a curry now so I'll say Goodbye...
Thanks for coming to see me...

A Mothers day card...

Good morning! It's bright and sunny and I am at home today as my eldest daughter is off school feeling a bit poorly...on the plus side I was able to walk my little one to school...well she rode on her scooter and we met other scooter girls along the way so I was able to have a chat with some other mums...
So on the subject of Mothers...How about a Mothers day card? It's another easel one and I'm still using my Wild Rose Studio stamps.

I so enjoy colouring in Milton bear with his bunch of tulips.

Background pink papers all from WRS Spring CD. I used my MS doily lace edge punch and some gorgeous irredescent butterflies with added jewels.

1. Die Cut Dreams
2. Simon Says Stamp

Just hanging in the blossom tree...

Hi there...
I have had an inset day today so I spent a nice few hours in my craftroom and the sun was shining! Playing with another Wild Rose Studio stamp...this time it's the kitten's turn.
The background paper is from the new 2011 Cherry Cupcake range and goes perfectly with this image of the kitten and his little bird friend...

Even though this stamp is from last years range, all of Dulcie's paper pads co-ordinate with each other and the new gingham pack is just what we have been waiting for! I have been using my new little jewel wheel quite a lot as I love seeing them in the centre of flowers.

The sentiment is taken from a special cat greeting stamp set, also from WRS so you always have a special cat saying to go with the cat images.

Some challenges...
1. Die Cut Dreams...'Spring Garden scene'
2. Charisma Cardz...'Four legged friends'
3. Creative Belli...'Animals'
Thanks for dropping by ...please visit me again as I have lots more cards and chat and some school displays to show!
Hope you have a good weekend planned.
