Frosted Butterfly...

Hi all.
Wow, Saturday again!
Why do the Summer holidays go so fast?

It's been a 'rainy inside activity' kinda week in Sussex and I've spent a lot of it crafting and having tea and cake with friends.

So...a Snowflake is Winters Butterfly...
such a sweet little sentiment.

 All products, dies and paper, are from the Winter release from
This beautiful frosted butterfly is perfect for winter birthdays and Christmas cards!

I added Sparkles and jewels which were great as they made the butterfly curl up slightly.

Simon says...Anything Goes
Papertake weekly...Take your pick
(I chose to use the colour Lilac)

I'll be going back down into my Craft room now...
As its just started raining again!

Hope you are having more luck with the summer where you are!

Thanks for visiting!

 Love from Sally

Wild Rose Studio...Teddy in Pot

Hello again on this lovely sunny Saturday!
Its difficult to think about Christmas when the sun is shining but for most of us who love making our own Christmas cards or who do design team work, the summer hols is the perfect time!
I have 6 weeks off as I'm a Teaching assistant in a large Junior school.

The new Wild Rose Studio releases are as usual a perfect mix of traditional and modern with a big dash of cuteness in the stamped images of teddies and animals and then for those crafters who air towards the more sophisticated card, there are the floral, butterfly and snowflake dies.  

 My card uses Teddy in pot stamp and the Poinsettia from the Holly frame/Poinsettia die set.
Papers are from Painted Poinsettia pack.

Coloured with Promarkers, I kept to the colours of the papers with soft greens and deeper ruby red.

Challenges for this card:
ABC Christmas...Q for Quantum leap
You could pick a theme from a previous challenge.
(I could have B for Bows and D for Die cuts
and G for Glitter!)

Creative card Crew...use Lace.
I hope you can see my white lace just running along behind the image.

So there you go...
First Christmas card of 2015.

Have a great weekend and I'll be back to show you some more later!

Love from Sally.


Sports car Bella...

Good Morning!

I'm back from my holiday trips now!
We went to a very hot 34 degree Paris and then onto a cooler drizzle in St.Ives.
Both charming in their own unique way.
So while the sun still shines I'm showing you another of the Spring 
Wild Rose studio releases.
I know that a few of you are beginning to think about Christmas now so I have some new cards lined up and ready too.

This is using Bella in her car stamp and is so adorable.
Coloured with Promarkers.
I love this car and balloons as I could gloss them up.
Papers and sentiment are also from Wild Rose Studio

Challenges for this card:
I love Promarkers...Anything Goes
Pile it on..Bright Colours
Through the craftroom door... Anything Goes

Okay so as promised...and apologies to those of you not quite ready for the cold weather just yet!
My next post will be a Christmas card!

Be back very soon!

Love from Sally
