Final Wee Memories challenge

Hello everyone & happy Saturday! Hope you are all enjoying your weekends so far. I’m here today with the FINAL Wee Memories challenge – I can’t believe we are really winding this great challenge down! It will be so sad to see it go, but we really do wish the best for Jenny and her stamping future :-)


This week’s challenge is a great sketch — and we have 3 fab sponsors – There She Goes Stamps, The Twinery & May Arts! Definitely make sure you play along – lots of goodies to be won! I used the There She Goes Stamp set called Love Birds – I had so much fun coloring this sweet image! The sentiment is Papertrey Ink, but there is a super sweet sentiment in this set (I’m just hopeless at using digi stamps!).

Thanks for stopping by & be sure to upload your creations to the Wee Memories blog by next Friday January 20.

Playing along with Play Date & CAS-ual Fridays

Hey everyone! A quick post tonight showing a card I whipped up for the Play Date Cafe & CAS-ual Friday challenges. I knew I wanted to play with both of these – gorgeous colour combo over at Play Date & so many options at CAS-ual Fridays.

For the CAS-ual Fridays challenge I chose the bottom row – Flowers, Buttons & Twine. I finally inked up my new Hero Arts Blossom Art stamp set – I love it! The sketch is based on the current design over at Clean & Simple Stamping.

Thanks for stopping by!

Little Sweet Pea

Its been a very rainy day here in London – which meant I could justify some time for getting inky! 

Just a quick card to share today for the Mojo Monday sketch & card recipe over at a Passion for Papertrey – The recipe called for 3 colours — I went for green, light pink & dark pink – ribbon & 2 buttons.
This card is a little busier than I’ve been making recently, but I love all these gorgeous new papers from the My Mind’s Eye Lime Twist line (sorry for the bad photo – gloomy day = dark picture). 
Hope everyone has a nice end to their weekend & thanks for stopping by!

Set Sail!

Happy Wednesday! Hope everyones weeks are going well. I just got back to London from a short trip to Texas for my bestfriend’s wedding. A long way to go for a weekend, but it was worth it! I also managed to stock up on some new goodies whilst back in the states and couldn’t wait to ink up some new stamps last night – especially Wilson Design’s Nauti-Cool.

I did this for a friend to give to her hubby for his birthday – thought the theme & colors were perfect for a guy. I have seen similar designs in blogland with this set and couldn’t wait to try something similar (with my own spin!).

This card is for the current challenge at Off The Wall Craftiness and the sketch is based on the design at CPS. This is also for the Simon Says Stamp – for a male challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

In the round

A super quick post tonight – I made a big mess making cards today and I’ve got to clean up before my other half gets home!

I never make round cards, but was inspired by the current challenge at Card Patterns & I thought I’d give it a try. This little number came together in no time and it is so sweet & cheerful – perfect for a new little boy! A great use of double-sided paper, which I often feel so guilty about using (I can’t stand the thought of one gorgeous side being stuck down forever!). Please excuse the bare nails!

The colors for this challenge are for the CR84FN Color challenge & because I used some chipboard stickers, this is also going into the Wee Memories challenge.

Thanks for stopping by & have a great weekend!

Oh, Baby!

Wednesday evening already? I seriously don’t know where the time goes!

A couple baby cards to share today – I had so much fun using some sweet My Minds Eye Alphabet Soup chipboard for these.

This first card is a CASE of the super talented Laurie Willison’s card here. I was in love with this card when I saw it and really hope she doesn’t mind that I’ve borrowed the design & her clever use of gingham. She is one of my all time fave designers – I could CASE all her stuff!

Another simple & sweet little baby card – used some buttons & twine on this one for the current CAS-ual Friday challenge. Both cards also use stickers, so they’re going in for the current Wee Memories challenge.

Happy Mother’s Day

Hey everyone!

Just a quick post tonight featuring another card I did for Mother’s Day – which is coming up in just a couple weeks here in the UK. I used the color combo from Color Throwdown – orange, green & blue.  I used the same sketch as the post below – I have a few more fun color combos with this card for Mother’s Day to share later…

This is also for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge – Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day Flowers

So, in the UK Mother’s Day is April 2nd and I’m busy making cards for friends. I love making mother’s day cards because I really love my mother! I think even though these are for someone else’s mom, I probably make them with my favorite person in the back of my mind. And, I can pull out all my favorite floral stamps as I think moms generally go for that stuff!

I remember seeing this sketch over at Karen’s blog, The Sweetest Thing, and really was struck by it & wanted to play along. Alas, time was not on my side. But, I’ve used in anyway for my cards today. Got to use lots of yummy new My Mind’s Eye & Crate Paper on these cards. Apologies for the bad pictures as well!!

This last card definitely reminds me of spring & also uses some green, so I’m entering it into the current challenge over at Wee Memories.

Thanks for stopping by!
