Hoo Hooooo loves you???


This card is made using my new {not freebie, lol} digi kit from SweetShoppe.com, they have amazing stuff pop over and see :)

The only thing not from the kit is the ribbon from American Crafts which I think tones in nicely with the papers.

Have a great evening :) :)

I added real buttons to centres of flowers , the spotty one is one of my own buttons {a packet are for sale in My Etsy} the lime green button is from Adrienne Looman. The sheep embellishment is from a hair bobble that I bought ages ago and fits lovely into this card.

Cute bear in plant pot :)

I made another card using the cute bear in the pot {Penny black}, I really do love this stamp and in my "use me up" folder i found a card that I started ages ago with Daisy D's paper and green border rub on, so I decided to cut it up and mat it on some Memorybox paper. To finish the card I added one of Nicola's flowers with a polka dot brad and an epoxy friends sticker.
Can you believe we are half way through the week already???? where does the time go??? and my blog is one year old next month {yaaaaaay!!} i cant believe that year went by so quickly :)
Enjoy tomorrow :) :) :) :)

Well I managed to get a card made, I couldn't find my mojo {lol} , so this is freebie paper that I got with a bargain magazine yesterday for £1 {yesssss!!! can you believe it!! what a bargain!!}
I loved all these buttons and I glued on some of my own painted ones which you can hardly see as I have taken this photo on such a wonderful sunny afternoon. I will take another picture later and upload it.
The flower is from Nicola, and I layered a green gingham padded heart on top with another of my buttons and a fancy pants pin. Sentiment is from Hero Arts :) oops almost forgot little paperclip, from Making memories.
Enjoy the sun, dont forget your sunscreen!!!!!!!!!

Cute card thursday using My paper world sketch

This weeks cute card thursday is gardens, so I got out this cute penny black stamp that I haven't used in a very long time. The papers are "use me ups" {lol} and all the cute sentiments are rub ons and flower and brad from stash. I used Nicola's sketch to put the card together :)
My computer is driving me up the walls, you have no idea how many times I had to close it down before I finally got to post this.
Hope you are having a good day :) :)
