Flowers and Blackberry Lane...

Afternoon all...
Hope everyone is well. Sun is shining and it's actually quite warm here in West Sussex.

So, onto my card for today...

I've used a pre printed panel from the Spring Wild Rose Studio Blackberry Lane collection of
Bunnies and mice.


Added glitter to the presents first then
I framed the image using lots of punched daisies with pearl centres and butterflies.
The background paper is also from Wild Rose Studio from the Annabelles Meadow pack.
Simple but so pretty!

I'm entering this card into the
Lets Craft and Create challenge which this week is Flowers.

Actually got a few cards made this weekend so please come and visit me again!

So many Circles....

Hi there...
I've been a bit quiet on the cardmaking front due to work.
So not a card to show you but my latest  Display project for school!


 My brief was to create a display that showed all 12 of our school values. 
It needed to include our school colour...Burgundy and
have a religious/symbolic link.


I used my bigshot to punch out circles in 5 different colours.
Burgundy, Plum, Claret, Lilac and Spring Green.
40 circles approx per bunch of grapes.

Once put together in bunches, I chalked them to give them some depth and add highlights.
Cut out the values and added them.


Wire covered in crepe paper for the vines...
Leaves drawn with chalks and photocopied.
 

I'm really pleased with how it turned out!
 
 
I hope this counts! 
 
Thanks for stopping by.
More cards soon..I hope!

Spring Flowers with Wild Rose Studio...

Hello bloggers...
I'm so enjoying my Easter Holidays...
I've completely re-decorated my youngest daughters bedroom, caught up with friends, been shopping and had lunches out, watched lots of Disney films with the girls and done some cardmaking....
My card today features a very cute and so easy to use Wild Rose Studio Spring panel... 


Beautifully coloured in for you in gentle pastels...I simply layered with spring green card and pink gingham paper, also from Wild Rose Studio,  and used my daisy and leaf punches to add some flowers to each corner.
I like the panels being the main focal point
 so I used a 5" card blank rather than 6".

A touch of glitter and this card is good to go...

Some challenges...

Creative Belli...Pastels
Divas by design...Flowers
Allsorts...Spring has sprung
Simon says stamp...Spring Flowers

Last few days before it's back to school...and then it's the Summer term.
You wouldn't think so with the weather.
Thanks for coming to see me.
 Back soon.

Mega Spring Cardmaking weekend...

Hi there all...
Are you all chocced out? 
We've still got loads left in this house. Almost been too busy to sit and eat them.
I took my eldest daughter up to the O2 to see One Direction on Tuesday. We had a great time on Oxford Street shopping before hand too.
I'm now clearing out bedrooms as same daughter had a new bed and we're giving her double to youngest daughter.
So we're going the whole hog and re-decorating too.
New bedlinen, curtains and new colour on the walls.
A bit more of a grown up look...

So onto some cards and a little while ago a friend gave me an unwanted paper and embellishment set that was given to her daughter from a recent cardmaking magazine...
so I set about one Saturday to a mega craft session...


 
In progress..bit of a mess!
I added ribbon and made tags with sentiments...
Used some flowers and my leaf punch...


and here's the end result on Sunday afternoon.
About 20 cards made...some of which are going to back to my friend!
I may show a few of these close up in the future...
Here's one for you now...

I love this blue/pink/lime combo and the birdcages and butterflies!


Some challenges...

Papertake Weekly...Anything Goes
Divas by Design...Spring Colours
Lets Craft and Create...Anything Goes

Hope you are still having Spring inspiration...difficult when it's sleeting outside.
It's very cold in West Sussex and we have had some hail today.

Off out now to get some Lavender paint...

Please leave me a comment...I love them so much!
