Love always

Hi there,  I love looking at new stamp sets and try to create a card in my mind to see if I will get a lot of use from it.  Sometimes, I will see a new set of stamps with characters that need colouring and have NO IDEA what I would do!!!! Then I see our wonderfully talented DT create something magnificent and I am in awe!!!  I really should use my copics and pencils more (I DO HAVE EVERY COLOUR YOU KNOW!!!)  I love the witty little sentiments and would love to be able to do that.  It is funny, I can pick our DT's card before I have even see who created it!  I am really drawn to shapes and lines and abstract patterns.
As you know (or may not ) we are renovating at the moment and this long and tedious project is impacting on my crafting (as well as other things).  My craft room is the room everything has been placed in whilst we are painting and re carpeting argghhh. It is extremely difficult to get to anything and I am challenging myself to create with whatever I get my hands on in my lucky dip :)
Today's card I wanted to stretch my supplies a little and use the flowers as flower petals.  As usual, I cannot say how FABULOUS the luxe inks are ♥♥♥ such beautiful coverage on large solid stamps and lovely vibrant colours too.  I embossed the scribble because I really wanted it to stand out. As you know there are no mistakes in crafting...... this was going to be a get well soon but I wanted the sentiment where it is and there was not enough room LOL....plan B.
Anyway, Scrapbook Boutique have the products used and instructions on how I put it together too.  Don't forget to try our monthly challenge where a RANDOMLY chosen entry can win.

Here is my take on the challenge.



I was instantly drawn to this Die from MFT and my mind raced with all that I could do with it.  I actually thought it was from another company at first.  It is going to be a fav for me as it can be used for so many occasions and with the little cut outs the world is your oyster with your colour scheme!!
It is our 28th wedding anniversary next week and well look at that... I am organised for a change.... LOL

Also let me apologise for being missing lately, we have a very unwell family member and crafting/visiting is taking a back seat.  I promise I will visit soon and check out your rockin' entries!!


anyway head on over to Ann's beautiful blog and I look forward to seeing your inspired contributions for this challenge ♥

Happy Birthday

Well that was your summer! It's Autumn now and I do love the cooler weather and colours of Autumn. Just popping in with a card.  I found myself with a couple of spare hours on the weekend ( a rarity!!!!) and although I cannot get in my craft room (we are renovating and it is a storage room at the moment) I managed to procure a few items!!  It was like a lucky dip as I couldn't see what my hand was touching!!!!  I set myself a challenge with a few items lol!!
Anyway, this card is for my lovely friend Sue, a belated birthday card as I was away for her birthday this year.  I have used the MB Whimsy Circle a lot and I love all the different ways you can showcase it.  I have inlaid today and I have kept the outside of the cut outs and re-attached them.  Head on over to Scrapbook Boutique to get the instructions and products used for this card.
