Starry teddy

Today I am sharing a card made with a really cute bear stamp I bought from LOTV a few weeks ago.  I wanted to make a card for one of the girls at work who is pregnant but I coloured the rabbit pink when it should have remained neutral!!  So I turned this into a baby girl card instead.  I will be back soon with a neutral version.
Thank you for visiting me today.

African flower granny crochet

Hello.  I am sharing my first attempt at an african flower granny hexagon with you today.  I used a 5mm crochet hook with stylecraft special dk yarn.  I was really happy with my first attempt - I just need to make another hundered or so to make a blanket!!
The colours haven't come out too well in the photo as the centre is a lovely egg yolk colour.  I bought several shades of pink and purple yarn at my local wool shop Twist and Purl so I am going to be able to crochet lots of different colour combinations.

Thank you for joining me today.

Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple

Today I wanted to add a doily to my card.  I had a look on Pinterest and found a few cards that insprired me.  My colours today are Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple and a hint of Old Olive.

Here is a close up of the layered flowers with rhinestone centres.

I will be back soon - with some more Sale A Bration goodies

Lattice die

Hello.  Today I am sharing a card using the stampin' up! lattice die (fresh out of the packet).  I was inspired by a lovely card on Amanda's blog - mine is a lot simpler.  I used my favourite stamp set from the current Sale A Bration brochure - Bloomin Marvelous  and my trusty sentiment from the Petite Pairs set.  The leaves are stamped in old olive, the flowers are a mix of pale plum and rich razzleberry.  When I have located my scallop square die I am going to have go at a folded card.

A few rhinestones add a bit of bling
Thank you for visiting me today - I hope to see you again soon

Victoria and Juliette out on the town!

Today I am sharing a card which is quite a lot larger than I normally make - its 8"x8"
It features two of the Uptown Girls - Victoria and Juliette, I'm not sure what they are drinking it could be a Green Swizzle judging by the colour.  The image is matted on a lovely patterned paper by Prima .  The deep red pink bazzill background and rolled roses are allcardstock from my stash.  The sentiment is from the Create a Cupcake stamp set and was matted onto a scallop oval.

Here are all my Uptown Girl creations together

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day to my husband Andrew

Here is a card I made a couple of weeks ago at our Tuesday Night Card Club.  I really love the colour scheme of Pool Party, Crumb Cake, Primrose Petals and Very Vanilla.  There are lots of new items from the fantastic new seasonal catalogue - you will be seeing them all in more detail soon.
