Birthday Flowers


 I made this card again with Freshly Made sketches but it was from a few weeks ago. The flowers are MFT, I brought the set just for these flower didn’t like the leaves so used an old set of MFT leaves.

The Happy Birthday circle stamp is a really old one that actually fell out of a box of stamps I was looking through and I decided to use it. The dots were from a Stamping up set.

Mistletoe and Holly


 A couple of clean and simple Christmas cards using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for this week. I couldn’t find a square sentiment so that part of the sketch became a rectangle using the Simon Says Stamp Inside Christmas Greetings stamp set.

The holly and mistletoe are Sizzix dies, the holly I used die cut berries and the I used self adhesive pearls for the mistletoe.

Hubby is off to get his second jab this morning and I get mine at the end of May.

Penny Black Mice


 Finally loaded Blogger with some photos of cards, yes they may be quick and easy ones like this Penny Black one. It’s a fairly large stamp and I forgotten how cute these  mice are. The sentiment is Penny Black too.

Hoping to get to the craft room today although will be thinking about my son who is having yet another surgery on his knee.

Butterflies


 Ok not my best work and it looks pretty more in real life. Stencilled the brick wall in matching colours.

The butterflies are Newton Nook and I love the sentiment that comes with it.

Ive struggled for a few weeks with my shoulder, it settled a bit now but I’m still looking for mojo.

Born to Ride


 A couple of Men cards that I made using a couple of old Stamping Up stamp sets. Took some inspiration from Pinterest too.

I wasn’t that keen on the embossed one but the other one is Ok. Why are men’s cards so hard and I have more men on my Birthday list than women probably why my mojo is missing and a dodgy shoulder.

White Rabbit


 Did I mention there was still a bunny card in my drafts and here it is. I have cheated and only coloured a bit in his ears and his nose.

The sketch was Tuesday Morning sketches from a few weeks ago but wasn’t keen on the white space so a few few mini flowers and leaves to break it up.

Bunny is of course from Rachelle Anne Miller but one from her MFT stamps and I got the matching die.

Went to Wisley yesterday, we picked a lovely day for it but does mean no crafting was done.

Footballer


 So this was the card I decided on for my Gt Nephew, it’s a Mo Manning image and when I brought the new footballer this came with it so I’ve got an image for next year the same but different. 

I kept it simple boys cards are just as difficult like men’s cards but I used the Cloud Edges die from MFT with a scrap of blue patterned paper for the sky.

The sentiment is a Creative Expression die and a few tiny stars from the Holiday shapes dies from Simon says Stamp.
