Scooter Hedgie

I know its suppose to be a Valentines image but I think it works all the year round. The little PB Hedgie on his scooter is called Sweet Ride  and the papers I think are American Crafts.
I used the Stitched Rectangles for the image mat and the Bundle of shapes for the outer mat. Then I used the Wishing die along with the sentiment from the Sending and Wishing stamp set.
My stitched scallops going across my card are from Lawn Fawn.
Like I said yesterday a CAS card but at least I getting back on the horse!

White with Wings

Woo Hoo I made a card, yes I know its CAS but its still a card and I made another for tomorrow too so things are definitely on the mend.
The card came together because this large Cluster leaf die from Simon Says Stamps is on my desk having cut a few for a scrapbook page before the virus took hold.
I've cut it in green and white and overlapped them. I decided to used the Simon Says Stamps Stitched Rectangles for the centre panel and the bit of twine since this looked like the Freshly Made Sketch.
I stamped the sentiment after I had put everything together and to my horror is didn't stamp cleanly at all. Rather than chuck it in the bin I got a black pen drew the bits missing so unless you looking real close it looks OK.
I very naughtily add a couple of Simon Says Stamps Songbirds so I could add it to the Less is More Challenge for Wings but I feel a bit guilty its not quite what they looking for.

Baby Girl

I think you can scrub away the man from ManFlu cos I've never coughed so much or feel so rough. I do feel now I'm on the mend but my energy levels are nil.
This card was in my drafts, I haven't made a card for over a week. I made it for a challenge then realised I got the challenge wrong.
First of all the baby is from Mo and the lovely pink papers are from LOTV. You can see I've used from favourite branch die from Memory Box and the fab MFT Crochet die for round the circle mat. The corners finished with the La LaLand die.
Fingers crossed I get to spend some time in my craftroom without coughing or falling alsleep.

Pretty in Pink

A card finally, I made it last week before the Man Flu and the evil cough which has incapacitated for the last few days.
Its for the new Everybody Art Challenge of Monchrome this week. I used the sweet Adele image from Mo Manning, love her hat. I just grabbed some pink papers from LOTV and the Spellbinders frame, the sentiment was using a die from the same set. 
Then it was a case of choosing some favourite dies and punches to finish off.
Sorry for the quick post but really not up to blogging yet but do have a card for tomorrow's Simon says Stamps Wednesday Challenge.

More Edward's Menagerie

So Man Flu has given me a cough which has throw my neck out not helpful for card making and I have a fabulous stamp set from Simon Says Stamps Hop to it release that I haven't felt well enough to play with.
I did get round to photo my crochet animals. The First one is the Chimpanzee but he looks more like a monkey so I added a tail and then worked out its not in the centre so he's back to being a chimpanzee.

While up visiting MIL I made the donkey, I do seem to have a problem with the muzzle the fact its a bit long  although my DD says its fine.

This is the first time I had a go at making the loops for hair/mane and DD vows never to sit next to me next time I make them. The air was a bit blue but worth it in the end.
I've now attempting Morris Mouse from a different pattern and out of the comfort zone of the pattern book.

Spring Cleaning

Finger's crossed I get the post right and the Dream Blog Hop post too, I'm suffering with a cold virus even if it does feel like Man Flu.
Lucky for me I made my card last week knowing the weekend will tire me out and not sure if I would be able to make the card in time.
Now I've been a bit cheeky the lovely Gretha who makes amazing cards has chosen Spring and I decided on using the Housework Fairy for a bit of Spring Cleaning. I found some odd bits of some Kaiser papers and decided to use them.
Thought it was about time I used some brought flowers and not too good at doing some displays but using my Lavish Branch die and some pearls on acetate stems help to bring it all together along with some Hydrangea punch flowers.
Now you should of arrived to me from the lovely Julie's blog and now to Hop, Skip and Jump over to Heidy's blog.
Don't forget to comment along the way there are two vouchers to spend in Mo's Shop for two random winners from the comments.
