Happy Times

Good morning ! I hope I find you all fine and dandy ?!!

I was in the mood for doing some colouring yesterday and giving my Copics and airing again.  I just adore the Tiddlyinks images and so decided to join in with their challenge and also searched for a great sketch !

The challenge over at Tiddlyinks is " Inky Critters" and the sketch is gorgeous and from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.




The doily and flowers are from my stash.

I cut the sentiment using an MFT Fishtail die-namics die and printed the words.

I also used a clothes pin and some twine.

Thank you so much for your visit and I hope you have a great day !

I'm now off out for lunch with some lovely friends :D and then the dreaded dentist :(  Wish me luck !!!

Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit

Good morning !

What a gorgeous bright and sunny morning.

I hope you have a relaxing and crafty Sunday !  I will be running around trying to find the bits of school uniform the girls will need for tomorrow as they are back to school !  I always manage to lose one bit which takes all day to find !!

Well, here I am back with another card I made using the Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit.

This one is a little notecard, 4x4 in size in fact.  I would be nice to make a few of these as a present for someone special, perhaps a Mother's Day present ?

Issue 115 of Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine will shortly be hitting the shelves and in there you will find a stationery set I made which consists of some notecards and a folder to keep them in.


I stamped out the flower 3 times and cut each layer and then layered it with foam squares to make it 3D.  I added some pink seed beads to the centre.

I hope you have liked the cards I have made with the February Card Kit.  Hopefully I can make a few more as there are still stamps I haven't yet used !

Thank you so much for your visit and for any comments you may leave.  They always mean so much.

Have a great Sunday !

Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit

Good afternoon !

I hope you have all had a good week and enjoyed the school holidays ?

We met up with some lovely friends of ours this morning and had a walk by the river and canal in Bradford on Avon and then had lunch out.  It was such a beautiful morning, the sun was out, the swans were chasing the dogs that had decided to have a swim *brrr* and the daffodils are just about to break through - Spring felt like it is finally on its way, at last !

I have been having a play with the February Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp.  This kit is so pretty and I love everything about it.  I have made a few cards and will blog them over the coming days.

Here is the first I made :


I just love those cute little envelopes, just right for hiding a little personal message !

Simon Says Challenge - Joy's Inspiration Photo - White On White

Good afternoon !

I hope you are all well and enjoying the school holidays ?

We have been super busy at home this week.  We usually go away in our caravan, this being the first trip out at the start of the year but we have had to stay at home due to house sorting not only here, but elsewhere too so we had to give up our holiday :(

Still, it isn't all bad as I now have a lovely tidy and clean craft room and it looks gorgeous - I am so pleased that all that hardwork was worth it !

Well.......

Its Wednesday and that can only mean one thing......time to announce our next challenge over at Simon Says Challenge !!
