Happy Mothers Day

Hello, it's Mothers Day in the UK so I thought I would share a couple of the cards I made... I have been trying really hard to use that mass of unused stash whilst I was at home...

The first card uses some retired Stampin Up stamp sets and a distress oxide background (sorry I am typing this up whilst away and no idea of all the sets)

Stamps: Petite Petals Stamps & Punch from Stampin Up; Simon Says Stamp Kaleidoscope Leaves Background.

I started sorting out DSP and other bits a pieces to sell when I get home but found this gorgeous Stampin Up paper in the process.  I had to use it as the main element of the card below.

Hope all the mums out there have a fabulous day...

Hope Your Day Is Magical... LOTV Sneak Peek!

Morning.... before I take a few weeks break again I thought I would share a card using one of the new images from Lili Of The Valley.  These are out on Monday 5th March in digi format! There are 12 images of girls and fairies in total!

I could not resist this little cutie ..

I have kept the card simple and used some brighter colours to colour in the scene.  I wasn't sure if it was a bee or a butterfly, but I chose a bee just to be different!

I've have been crafting away in the back ground the last few weeks but seem to keep starting and stopping with the blogging as I run out of time... My globetrotting will be coming to an end by June 1st so fingers crossed I have more time for crafting and blogging. Once the travel starts again next week, I will be having an extended break until at least mid April as I go into the last phase of this project at work!

Hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday

Morning... So Sarah talked me into joining in with the Less Is More 7th Birthday celebrations this month! After a couple of months off (I had an operation just before Christmas and it threw me out more than expected ) and the last 3 weeks in California I am looking forward to getting stuck back in to crafting.

This week the first of the birthday celebration challenged is

Here is my card..

I used one of the fabulous new boy images from lili of the valley and coloured it in with my copics.  Keeping to my clean and simple style I added a sentiment.

The next few months is going to be hectic... i'm on the last phase on a 3 year project with travel to the US until the end of April... then I get some normality to my life back!

Hope you all have a fabulous Saturday

Lets Be Merry

Another PB for you today.. they have always been a favourite but i think this Owl is an all time!

I did a little ink blending in the back ground with distress oxides and cut out the peekaboo window from MTF.  The owl is fussy cut and a small sentiment added

Love this card...  Hope you are all getting into the festive swing of things
