Happy Easter Sunday

I thought sheep were quite appropriate for today as it's Easter Sunday - I suppose chocolate sheep might be even better! One simple card using a now retired digi from Sassy Cheryl and Back to Basics paper.

Whimsy Inspires a Geek!

I thought this image was perfect for the front of a notebook and found this offcut of alphabet paper to go underneath - clean and simple just how I like things :0)

Teddy Bo Tuesday

Sentiment: Blonde Moments Stamp
Card Base & Mat - Silhouette Store

It's your last week to enter our Teddy Bo spring challenge before we have a new one and fabby new images next Tuesday. Yet again I've not managed a spring card although weddings are supposed to be a new start like spring are they not?????

Bit of a collage

All these stamps were from a set in a magazine - I must admit to having a bit of a thing about beach huts and deckchairs so you may well see these ones again - great for stinky big boys :0)

I would like to enter this into 365 Cards nautical challenge

Stinky Boys Again

Tall child is not very girly - therefore tall child has more male friends so I get lots of requests for stinky boy cards.

For this reason I love Dustin Pike - this was a freebie a while back - 20 mins tops from start to finish **grins**

Challenges for everybody

Doily: Silhouette Cameo
Sentiment: Craftwork Cards

I don't normally combine my DT cards but thought this was just so perfect for the new Spring Theme Challenge over at Fussy and Fancy Friday which is the same theme as the 
 Teddy Bo challenge.As Bea is looking very cute and springy watering her tulips.

Peeking Cat

 I recently won a gift voucher for Stamp and Create and this stamp by High Hopes was one I chose although it did go in and out of my basket several times as I couldn't decide if I really wanted it or not and guess what it's the only one I've used so far!
As tall child also needed a gift box for a bracelet I used it again although I didn't have any scraps of the same Back to Basics paper left and wasn't cutting into a new sheet for a tiny strip so it doesn't quite match.

The mats, fence and the box were all cut on my Cameo - I love being able to cut just about anything in any size for the huge sum of 65p and only have to wait for it to download

Whimsy Inspiration - Baaaa!

Image: Baa by Lia Stampz

I've made a spring card using these cute sheep today - the top sheep moves round and jumps over her friends - I just love their cute expressions. The image is available in the Whimsy stamps Store along with loads and loads of others. Why not use one to join in the current stitching challenge over at the Whimsy inspires blog

Sometimes it's Safer

To buy your own mothers day present although tall child did also buy me the new Bon Jovi album too **grins** before you faint I didn't pay full price for the stamps although they are Hero Arts so well worth it.

This is the card I made with them - the gingham paper is from Teddy Bo

New Challenge At Whimsy - Stitching

Our challenge for you this month at Whimsy Inspirations is to use stitching - I've used machine, hand and faux on my card but whatever you use its up to you - hop over to the blog to see what you could win.

For my card today I've used new images from Moon Cookie Gallery called Lexie and Sammie who are available separately or as part of the really cute Pets Set. I'e also used Moon Cookie Paper from the Neapolitan Dreams Set and a postage stamp from the Everyday Mini Postage Stamps Set

There's a Bee on Your Nose

I just love this image by Sassy Cheryl of my first bear love although I will admit to preferring Eeyore if the chips were down and it's almost 16 years since I went to play pooh sticks at the actual real life bridge

I had also printed the image out a bit smaller so made a matching post it note holder

Happy Mothers Day

Well we had snow this morning and at lunchtime but it's now bright and sunny as anything although freezy cold as I found out when we took hubby's car to the car wash and they opened the doors to do the sill bits.

Thought I'd share something bright and cheerful to wish you all a Happy Mothers day if you're in the UK

And another week gone

Letters: Sizzix Man Oh Man Dies

Bet you can't guess who my card is for today??? I make very few green cards but since he is a hoops supporter I make at least 2 a year although it's quite easy at Christmas.
Our new challenge at The Teddy Bo Challenge is Spring so I suppose Spring Greens would count!

Spring has Sprung

After a couple of lovely days its been all grey and damp and miserable here to day so I thought I'd cheer you up with something bright and springy.

This is another of Whimsy's new releases for this month called Tulip Umbrella by Stampartdesign

Crafting for All Seasons
Ruby's Rainbow
LEJ Designs
Oldie but a goodie - backing paper is at least 4 years old 

With Sympathy

Sadly my uncle died over the weekend although he had been on the critical list with pneumonia since before Christmas and was also suffering from dementia so maybe not such a bad thing all together - this is the card I sent this morning

Tall Child has a birthday

Tall child was 13 yesterday - she picked out hot pink and cyan promarkers but said the image was up to me.
This one by Sassy Cheryl so reminds me of her when she was smaller although she still has the rabbit.

New release at Teddy Bo

It's the first Tuesday of the month so there's a new release over at Teddy Bo today as well as a new challenge over at the challenge blog. This month we want to see your Spring themed creations.
No card from me today as I'm on Friday duty for the time being.

Teddy Bo almost Saturday

Image: TEDDYBEA_098
Card Base: Silhouette Cameo

I had this week planned out almost to the hour but it all went wrong yesterday when I was running round clearing up after you lot and had to take tall child to the Orthodontist.
I was late picking her up then he told her she would be having a fixed brace next visit and would possibly have to have teeth removed to get them all in line - queue major wobbly!!!!

Stupidly I suggested we went shopping on the way back to spend her birthday money (which she hasn't had yet) - 2 hours later a fair bit stood outside the changing rooms in Primark.
Nipped into Morrisons on the way home for 4 packets of Scotch Pies and 2 Haggis and finally got home at half 5 then realised I'd done no ironing and no-one had any shirts.

I was going to get my card done first thing this morning but woke up feeling like Mrs Rank  from Rank Street in Rank Town so finally got it done this afternoon.
Anyhoo you still have a few days to enter our anything goes challenge at Teddy Bo before we have a new bumper release of bears on Tuesday and a brand new bouncy challenge.

I would like to enter Ready Teddy Go - mum's the word
