cake bouquet

A Cake bouquet! Not the most brilliant pic, but they tasted so good. Made by my daughter, she is

You make me smile!

I love this little stamp from Polka Doodles, it's so sweet,  and this colour scheme is lovely and fresh just right for springtime......

I used papers from my stash,  and some free papers in my new Making Cards Mag, I debossed the sentiment, and die cut some white flourishes... I love these colours.

spring flowers

I made a bunch of Christmas flowers, using my Cricut, and I've only just managed to throw them away... they were dusty, and too festive looking. So I thought I would make a bunch of spring flowers, in pink, yellow, mauve, blue and turquoise.... I think they turned out ok,  and as they are very glittery catch the light when I open the front door.  It cheers me up no end!

For someone special

Isn't this the cutest image from Mo Manning,  she is the queen of digi stamps!

She is so sweet... I used my new sewing machine to stitch.. I embossed the white flowers on the blue card.. I cut the flowers on my Cricut, of course! And used my paper stash to layer up... 7 layers in all,  so back to my usual method of more is more!!  Love it!

New home

Using some free papers again from Making Cards, the colours are so pretty, I wouldn't have thought of using green and dark pink together. I have used a doily distressed as a lacy border to the sentiment. I have doodled the edges in black pen... nice and simple.
