a little wall hanging

Morning everyone
It's my turn to post over on Art by MiRan today and I've made a little wall hanging rather than a card.
This is Spring Blossom, one of the gorgeous new releases ealier this week.  Have you been over for a peep yet?  OMG they are fabulous!!  

papers - scraps from stash
pearls and gems - from stash
flowers - Stamp and Create
butterfly - Cricut - Storybook cartridge

I'm really chuffed with how this turned out and it's nice to make something other than a card now and again too.  Her hair is covered in tiny gems but the camera has not captured this very well unfortunately.
Thanks for popping in
Happy Crafting

some bunny loves you

Hiya everyone
Happy Easter and what could be more fitting for my post today than an Easter card.
This is one of the new releases from All Dressed Up.  I flipped it and used it twice, just to be different.

So, who has found all their eggs and who is feeling sick from too much chocolate already?
I've been good and not touched mine yet.  I'm saving it for the telly tonight:)
Enjoy what's left of your day

you brighten my day

Morning Everyone
I'm been awake since silly o'clock, have a few jobs already done and the washing machine is on too.  So I'm sitting here with a cuppa whilst I have a little browse around and move on to me next job of the day.

First though I've a card for you

papers - Lidl
bloom -  Stamp and Create

I've been trying again with the Frantage.  I'm still on the fence with this.  I love it on other peoples cards but not so much on me own for some reason. I seem to be a bit heavy handed with it :)
Enjoy your day girls, hopefully it's a crafy one:)

Afternoon everyone :)
I've actually managed to get out into the garden for an hour.  I won't pretend it's any better looking though as the ground is absolutely sodden so not a lot can be done but it's a wee start :)
Anyway, I've been such a bad blogger recently I thought it was time to show you a card other than one of my DT ones.  Yes, I have been creating but too lazy to get them on here :(

This was for an old lady, 103 to be exact who was having lunch at Glasgow City Chambers and receiving her British Empire medal.  103!!! Can you believe that?

It's time for a bit of colouring now:)  I've a few orders and DT cards to get sorted so I'd best get to it

oh hoppy day

Morning girls
I've a busy day ahead of me.  By hook or by crook I'm going to clean this craft room.  It's minging, cluttered and unorganized.   My desk is virtually a no go area there is so much piled on it and as for my cutting corner, I won't tell you how many minute scraps from my dies are scattered all over that!! I've been tossing bits and pieces all over the place so, today it gets sorted.

Onto me card. It's everything Easter over at The Paper Shelter this fortnight. 

Isn't this little scene gorgeous?  It's one of Veronica's pre coloured images.  She does such a beautiful job of them it's hard not to use them and have a day off from the colouring :)

papers - Polka Doodles
sentiment - Sparkle n Sprinkle

Well, I'd best go and get started.  If I sit here and browse, it'll be Facebook and Pinterest and then the morning will be gone.
Have a smashing day and wish me luck
