Thought I would get my Mothers' Day card made early and followed the theme over on Stamp and Create with Magnolia which is Spring with Butterflies.

I have used one of my Magnolia images which had butterflies already on it and coloured her in with pro markers.  I cut her out with my Labels Ten nestability.  The dp used are both from Magnolia called Rosy Butterfly and Daffodil.  Cardstock used are both from Stampin Up called Daffodil Delight and Regal Rose as is the ribbon.  Bow made using my Bow-easy. I used a sentiment from my stash and flowers from wildorchidcrafts.  The pink butterfly was from Hobbycraft.

Its been a few years since I last had to make a Valentines card so had to buy some uptodate crafting stuff to make one lol!  I love Me To You from the crafting to the cuddly :-)  I have made this for the special person in my life.

I am entering this into the challenge over on this weeks Totally Gorjuss challenge which has a theme of Love and also Ready- Teddy Go Challenge which is Love is in The Air.  I have used one of the new Me To You Valentine images and coloured in with promarkers and cut out with an oval nestie.  The card stock used is Ruby Red from Stampin Up.  I have also used scallop and plain heart nesties to cut out out the hearts.  The dp is a selection from the matching Valentine Me To You range.  Ribbon from my stash and sentiment from Hobbycraft.  I also used flat backed hearts from Hobbycraft.


I have had a lovely weekend as I visited my boyfriend whom I have been seeing since just after Xmas.  We went to Telford to buy my Valentines present as we only see each other at the moment every other weekend and so won't be seeing each other next weekend.  I told him whatever he bought me it would make me more than happy so I will be posting a picture on Thursday what he got me :-)

I have another friends' birthday coming up and so I have made this one for the lovely new challenge Stamp and Create with Magnolia which the theme this time is Spring Flowers.

I have used my Magnolia stamp with Tilda holding a bunch of flowers which I have coloured in with promarkers and yellow Sakura glitter pen on her wings.  I cut her out with my curved rectangular nestie and pieced onto Barely Banana cardstock from Stampin Up.  The dp is a selection from Papermania Rose Garden paper pack.  Ribbon is from my stash and pink flat backed gems from Papermania.  The sentiment which is from a Papertrey Ink set is cut out using a smaller rectangular nestie.  All the flowers are from wildorchidcrafts.

Sorry haven't been around for a while but nearly 2 weeks ago I made the most aweful decision of having my 14 year old Westie Timmy put to sleep.  The weekend before all this happened he suffered a fit and just went downhill very fast from there.  It was very upsetting for me as I was on my own with him to the very end and as I had him when he was 8 weeks old he was definately part of my family.  I had him cremated and his ashes placed in a Tea Light Urn which I have lit every day since I got him back.  The house is really quiet and I expect it will take some time to get used to it.

R.I.P. Timmy 25/09/1998 - 24/01/2013

Anyway back to my latest creation which was for a very dear friend of mine whom I work with and have done for nearly 20 years, whose birthday it was yesterday.

I followed the lovely sketch over on this weeks Sketch Saturday for inspiration.  The image is from Lily of The Valley which I coloured in promarkers and cut out with my circular nestie.  The dp are a selection from My Minds Eye Quite Contrary and the cardstock is from Stampin Up Pixie Pink and Certainly Celery.  I used a sentiment from Lily of The Valley Dreamy Days set pieced onto a scallop nestie circle.  The fancy corners are from Provocraft, gems from my stash and flowers from wildorchidcrafts.

Hope to be back again soon with more creations.
