A Card for Spring ...

We have ahad glorious weather this week, it would have been fabulous for Summer never mind Spring and to top it all I've broken up for the Easter holidays today so I am at home for the next two weeks - yippeeee!!

The challenge over at Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar challenge blog is to create a card for Spring, I'm using Spring colours for my card

Two weeks ago I spent the weekend with 7 of my crafty friends in a cottage in the middle of nowhere playing with paper, eating, laughing and generally having a fabulous time. Jan taught me how to make this card, it folds flat for posting.  I used gorgeous Pion papers from my other friend Jean, ribbon, flowers, crystal swirls, lace, liquid pearls and pins (tinted with a Copic pen to coordinate) all from the Ribbon Girl and it was the perfect card to enter as my Guest Design Team card into the challenge that the Ribbon Girl is sponsoring.

Wedding Card ...

I am entering this card into Lili's Little Fairies challenge which is an anything goes challenge

I used one of the LOTV coloured images - really useful when you're short of time to make a card and the pretty ribbon, pompom trim and liquid pearls are all from Ribbon Girl

Summer has arrived ...

Summer seems to have arrived in my part of the world, the clocks changed on Sunday and I am enjoying the lighter evenings, the fact that we've had wall to wall glorious sunshine for the last 4 days has just made life even sweeter :)

Today I have two cards to share



Both of these cards were made for the Papertake Weekly Challenges (this weeks and last weeks)

A Girly Get Well Card ...

I love this little bear (technically he is a boy bear but I wanted to use him for a girly get well card so he's had a bit of a sex change!) and I seem to be addicted to making easel cards at the moment.

Stamp - Stamp Fairy
Ribbon, lace and Perfect Pearls - Ribbon Girl

This is for the Papertake Weekly Challenge which is sponsored by Stamp Fairy this week

This is my card for the Papertake Weekly challenge and just incase you think I only make cards for PTW I'm sharing a few more that I've made recently ... I''m just pretty useless at posting to my blog!
