Easter Bunny

This is the card I made for last weekend using the Mojo Monday sketch but there's a new one now. The papers are I think are Authentique. The idea of my Easter bunny hiding among the flowers which are Upsy Daisy ones from MFT.
On the actual stamp there's a couple of butterflies and since my bunny is looking at something. I decided to used a couple of old butterfly punches to give him something to look at.

For Mason

Recently I've had some special cards to make and couldn't show till after they were given. This is the case with Mason's Birthday card. He's already walking and into all kinds of mischief so Mo's fabulous Biker Babe image is perfect.
The papers are Doodlbug and the flat bottom clouds are from Simon Says Stamps Exclusive dies. The number one and the today die is from the same place I got the cogs from All Occasion dies I think they are called.
Happy Birthday sentiment that lives on my desk (dining room table) and twine to finish.

This weekend I had already planned to get my sewing machine out and have a go at a simple patchwork.

HM Mouse

Yesterday and today is going to be busy but I had made my DT cards for this week. This one would have been my Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge one.
The image is a HM mouse I haven't always been successful with HM images but I think one turned out OK.
I used a Spellbinders frame for the background and I've been wanted to to use this large Simon Says Stamps birthday sentiment.
Only problem is that this card is not my normal size and I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to make an envelope for it.

A card for all my Blogging and FB friends for all the condolences and wishes, I was amazed by how many of you took the time to write something, Thank you.
Hope to get back to this blogging lark but a little at a time.
First off my card is using a pad of Stampin Up paper and the flowers are too. Fresh Foliage from Memory box for my leaves and the flower pot is from a Sizzix set but it was too big so I chopped up the bottom. Sentiment from Simon Says Stamps.

Baby Balloon Bear

Flipping heck I forgot to schedule this post but its been one of those week. Well this is the second card for the Guest DT for Lily of Valley Stamps and I've tried to use one of my favourite stamps. I absolutely love the balloon bears and how when you paper pieced the balloons is brings the card together.
I've used some of last bits of the paper pack from Lily of Valley which works so well with kraft card.
The balloons I think are from MFT and the leaf corner is from Memory Box but the flowers are a x cut tiny flower punch.
My sentiment is a Lily of Valley clear stamp but what I do I stamp it on the kraft card and cut it out, turn it over so there no ink showing. Then stamp on white and cut the sentiment out from the inner shape. Stick together and theres just enough of the kraft card to edge the sentiment.

All finished with a bit of ribbon.

I even used a stamp a me jig to make sure my grid lines and sentiment was straight and somehow it looks crooked. I was impressed with myself how this turned out but the camera does indeed liel
First of I've used the Turquoise colour so I can enter my card for the Less is More Challenge but I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.
First off I used Off the Grid from Stampin Up but I stamped on waste paper first the actual stamping on the card was its second time of stamping which I also did with two lots of the grungy dots but one lot was used the first time along with the sentiment.
I added the hearts and sequins, now I had to step away from the card.
