SBS18 Challenge #7 - Just to Say

Just Because - I was competely lost for ideas with this one, and so I put a few bits and pieces together and this is what I came up with !!
The stamped greeting says "Just Because" on the flower, embossed in gold.

Maybe I'm feeling a bit blue - I have the funeral tomorrow for my great aunt who died last week, and I'll miss her lots.

Cute Card Thursday Challenge 16

This card has been made for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge. The challenge is to use No Patterned Paper!
I used some SU cardstock and stamped it with a background stamp, adding die cut photo corners, stamped image and raffia ribbon with stamped and utee'd tag, which says best wishes, but it hasn't photographed very well. I'm really loving using my spring card template - can you tell!!??

Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #21

Here's my attempt at the cupcake challenge on this week's Taylored Expressions blog.

Penny Black Challenge & Cute Card Thursday

I have made this card using a Penny Black Stamp, with a brown base and orangey type floral paper, a bit of ribbon and punched flowers. Hope you like it.

French Storage idea!!!

I just thought I'd share this storage idea that I picked up in a French market while on our travels in Brittany last week. I bought it for about 8 euros in a market, and it was the only one I had seen, until I turned a corner and saw loads of other stalls selling similar things!! Some had 4 or 5 baskets, all around the same price - typical, hey!!!
Anyway, I'm quite pleased with it - I immediately thought it would be ideal for all those little bits and bobs in my crafty room!!!

SBS18 Challenge #6 - Lilac

This is a card I managed to make while in sunny France. I'm not too sure about it myself, but with limited resources and time, it was the best I could come up with. I made the stamped image 3d, layering it 3 times, and it is dangling on the ribbon, which obviously doesn't really show in the picture. I just wanted to try my new spring card template!
Luckily, it also fits in with the SBS18 challenge #6, being that it's lilac!!!

Magnolia Challenge ~*~ 22 ~*~ None Card Week!

I was determined to do this challenge - a great excuse to get my beads out (again) and combine them with shrink plastic! The only thing I find hard with Magnolia challenges is that I only have 2 stamps - ahhh!!

SBS18 Challenge #4

Here's my entry for this weeks SBS18 Challenge - a non conventional fold, with red, black, pink and white.
I used white cardstock for the base, layered the stamped two-step stampin simple sketches stamped in ruby red, cameo coral and rose regal, onto white, layered onto black sparkly paper. I also used my xyron to make sparkly laminated danglies that hung from pink and red ribbon, and a few brads and greeting to finish.
Hope you like it!

Only Joking Blog Candy

Made using pink cardstock, pink DCWV glitter card, Queen & co Kissy Fit flowers, letters and ribbon slider, plus ribbon and one of my fave stamps.
Hope you can see it clearly - the glitter card doesn't photograph very well, and the flowers are quite shiny too!!
