What a lovely few days we have had with some lovely sunshine and its only February!  Today I took Seren to her nannie and grandad's as at my mom's Methodist Chapel there was a model train and art show on.  Seren was loving all the Hornby style steam locomotives as she occasionally watches Thomas The Tank Engine!  We then enjoyed some sandwiches and cake before heading back to my mom and dad's.

I have a few birthday's coming up in March and so have had to make some extra cards.  I used the lovely sketch over on this weeks Sunday Sketch and Stamp and have used one of my neglected Hanglar images as the Lovely Haenglar Only Challenge is back up and running with a theme of Anything Goes.

I coloured my Hanglar image in with promarkers and cut out with my oval nestie.  The cardstock is Sage Shadow from Stampin Up and the dp is a selection from Memory Box Minuet paper collection.  The light aqua roses are from wildorchidcrafts and the darker roses are Prima mini roses.  I used ribbon from my stash and a sentiment from Forever Friends Pink Parfait die cut message tags mounted onto a punched out extra-large modern label from Stampin Up.  Greeny adhesive gems from Treasures by Shabby Chic.

Well Seren's back at school and so I have some peace and quiet to craft lol!  After school Seren is going to her dance class then after tea she is off to a swimming club which she joined last Monday.  Hopefully her dad will be taking her swimming so not to much rushing around for me!

I have made my next creation for  Christmas Challenges (with sketches) who also have a GDT call so I will be putting in for that too.

The image I have used is from LOTV called Icy Angel which I have coloured in with Promarkers and added Sakura Clear Star pen and Crystal Ice Ice Stickles to her wings and snow effect.  The cardstock used (which sadly I've now used up) is Pretty In Pink from Stampin Up.  Designer paper is a selection from Papermania Mistletoe Kisses.  Flowers are punched out using my Nellie Snellen Poinsettia punches.  The sentiment is also LOTV which came with the same stamp I used.  Adhesive gems and ribbon from my stash which the bow was tied using my Bow-Easy.

A few of the blogs I am following have mentioned that the Google Friend Connect ( list of followers) will be going so I have added a new follower list if you would like to re-add your name.

Many thanks

Well what a week its been so far with all the snow we had on Saturday afternoon.  Now we have had the dreaded ice this morning and according to weather reports more snow is forcast later this week up to an inch!!

Anway its an excuse to make some more cards.  I have made the following using the theme over on Saturated Canary which is Red, Pink and White and used the lovely sketch over on Totally Gorguss.

I have used a free download which was available on Saturated Canary recently called Canary Love and coloured in using my promarkers.  The cardstock used are both from Stampin Up called Pretty In Pink and Real Red.  The dp is the same double sided sheet from Making Memories Love Notes as is the sentiment which is a Rub-On, punched out with my SU oval punch and pieced onto an SU scallop oval.  The flowers are from wildorchidcrafts, ribbon is from Celebrate and the heart adhesives are from Hobbycraft.
