Birthday Wishes

Hope everyone is ok in blogland, so sorry I have been awol for so long. I seem to have been busy doing nothing, time slips through my fingers sometimes without any real achievement. The last few weeks I have been settling into my new routine, two children at school now instead of one and little girlie starting preschool. It has taken me a while to re-adjust and now I have got my head around it I can get back to normality.
Just a quick post tonight, it was my son's fifth birthday today and he was really pleased with the card I made him as he loves Scooby Doo! The decoupage Scooby and background paper was from a pack, used a lot of scraps; paper, ribbon, and an ancient 'birthday boy' stamp!

Thanks for stopping by, hopefully it won't be as long before I post again!

Last of the summer....:(

Hope everyone is well in blogland this Sunday night, a couple of friends have been under the weather lately so hope they feel better very soon! Not had as much time to play or blog this week and got cravings - don't like to be parted from my crafty things for too long. I was delighted to find I won the Magnolia Stamp Lovers challenge this time - don't often win but when I do I get over excited!
Anyway.... enough of my ramblings. Got to share the card I finished last night for an animal theme challenge. Went wild for colour as I am hanging on to the last of the warm weather, think this will be my last chance to celebrate summer before I give in to autumnal and (dare I say it) Christmas projects!

The digi image is called Butterfly Kisses and it was one of three digi images I won a few weeks ago from a Crafts 4 Eternity challenge. I was over the moon as I had never won anything before, and I have been trying to work them into my cards ever since.

I would like to enter Spoonful of sugar challenge - using an animal image.

I also used: SU papers, cardstock, stamps;sentiment (circle of friendship), vintage label, inks to colour image
buttons and ribbon from stash

Thanks so much for taking the time to look, your comments are always lovingly read.

Anya wishes for?.....

Hope everyone is enjoying not only the last few days of the school hols but also the lovely weather - better late than never! Just a quick post to show a card I made for the Anyone for Anya? challenge which is a sketch I just couldn't resist. I originally only had an image of Fleur Anya,kindly lent to me by (funnily enough - Fleur!) but I have since bought Princess Anya. So I thought I would shrink princess and make her a fairy godmother figure.

I would like to enter the Anyone for Anya sketch challenge this week, and I used the following to create my card: papers - Magnolia: Something Old, Something New,
Kaisercraft: blushed devotion
SU - sentiment and stampin' spot inks
Greeting Farm stamps - Fleur Anya (thanks Fleur for the loan! x)
Princess Anya
other papers, brads and ribbon from stash

Thanks for stopping by

Gearing up for Autumn

Hi all, sorry it's taken so long since my last blog. I been a busy girl on days out with the family. I am exhausted after day trip to London and glad to get back to crafting for a rest! The card I have made was inspired by two Magnolia challenges, tied in a sketch with an autumn feel. Played about with my new Tilda image and decided to paper piece her dress as it looked better than my colouring! I chose to give her knee high boots and jodpur style leggings instead of turn-up jeans. I decoupaged the acorn and ended up doing a mixture of cross-stitch and running stitch around the edge using orange and brown embroidery silks.

Challenges I would like to enter:
Just Magnolia - sketch
Magnolia Stamp lovers - Autumn

I used: Cosmo cricket paper - Earth Love
Magnolia - Tilda with straw
SU - Touch of nature stamps, sentiment and acorn

Thanks for stopping by
