Have just watched Scotland's Andy Murray win another tennis match and know this is going to be his year to win Wimbledon so fingers crossed. Will be heading off for a mini break in London this weekend with my sister and would love to try and get some tickets for the tennis but our chances of that are very slim but still I can dream.
And so onto today's card or should I say bag and us girls do like our bags so keeping with that a cute bag with flower embellishments.
All the elements of this card were created using Spellbinder Dies "Labels Thirty-One", "Nested Pendants"and "Jewel Flowers and Flourishes" along with M-Bossabilities EL-004. The sentimemnt was using Memento Ink "Rich Cocoa" and Dimension Stamps.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Take care until the next time

Spellbinders "Grand Rectangles" and "A2 Curved Matting Basics"
Hobbycraft Ink Pads "Metallic Blue" and "Xmas Red"

That's all for now so take care.

A card today using colour inspiration from this week's challenge over at
After creating the floral background to this card using Recollections Clear Stamps "Freedom Flowers" then coloured in with Sakura Glaze Pens the rest of the card came together very quickly

The panels were cut out with Spellbinders "A2 Curved Matting Basics" and the sentiment is from American Crafts Stamp set "Baby".

A group of red flowers adds the finishing touch to this card giving it a clean and uncluttered look.
Back again very soon so take care in the meantime.

Hello and it had to happen but the rain has returned but still a good excuse to get some crafting in and today a cute baby  card which could be  for girl or boy although I did have a baby girl in mind when doing this. Sometimes it is nice to get away from the usual pinks and instead use some bright summery colours for a change.
The bear stamp is from a lovely set by Kanban called Wooly Bears and this is Isobel and what I like is that you also get some clothing for her like the top on my card which are easy to cut out and add ontop of the stamped image.

Other items used are:
Spellbinders "Hexagons"
American Crafts Stamp Collection "Baby"
Iwould like to enter this card into the following challenges
Thats all for now but take care until the next time

Good afternoon had a morning in the garden enjoying the sun before updating my blog with a sweet little card.
The colour inspiration for this card was inspired by the colour challenge over at color
The main part of the card was formed using Spellbinders "Butterflies Circles" and "Standard Circles Large"and the fallout of little butterflies were coloured with Promarkers before placing back in the circle. The flowers along the centre were made using Joy Crafts "Small Roses"cutting stencil and finished off with a gem in the centre.The sentiment was stamped using KaiserCraft Mini Stamps "Greeting."
Take care friends and if in the UK hope we continue with this wonderful weather.

Hello again and a quick post before I head off to the garden again to enjoy this lovely weather we are having at the moment.

Today a tag using a favourite of mine which is bubblewrap on the background of this card and with just some ink you can create so many unique looks. I then added a ribbon rosette in the centre with the sentiment along the bottom of the tag.
Hobbycraft Ink Pad - light blue, fuchsia and yellow
Kaisercraft Mini Stamps - proud
Spellbinders - jewel flowers and flourishes
With lots of people graduating and others passing exams at this time of the year I thought this would be ideal to hang on a gift for someone to congratulate them as well as for many other occasions.
