Spring has Sprung

We have a brand new challenge at Papercreator again today and in the words of the late great Spike Milligan:
Spring is sprung.
The grass is riz.
I wonder where the birdies is?
The bird is on the wing.
Now isn’t that absurd?
I always thought the wing was on the bird!

Just in case you missed the theme it's Spring! And may I take this opportunity to apologise for my awful pun but I just couldn't resist it :c)

I've used:
For Ewe topper set
Tim Holtz Doily edger die (which you can't really see)
Flower punches by  EK Success in 2 sizes
Sentiment is computer generated with Cool Dots font

I managed to post again within 10 days so we'll see how long the next one takes me lol!
Have Fun

Happy 21st!

I don't usually craft from CDs in fact I've currently only got 2 - this Bebunni Birthday one and the Bebunni Love one but I just couldn't resist him.

You can't really see the 3 layers I painstakingly cut out by scapel but I can assure you they're there and layered onto bargain mirror card from Home Bargains.
Just a sentiment from Imagine That and some buttons from stash

Another year older...............

Not me I hasten to add - I'm not having extra birthdays in fact I really don't want any more.

We have a thing in our house about bears (obviously) penguins and elephants and each year I find a new one for hubby's birthday.

This is the Papercreator penguin quick card front  which has both an 8x8 option used above and 6x6 which I made up below without the buttons. The sentiments on the top one are by Blomde Moments

Oh My Word!!!

I've just noticed it's over 2 months since I've blogged - naughty me!!!!

Here is a gorgeous Papercreator kit called Love Bears All - he's a gatefold and almost A5 in size
Apologies for the rubbish pictures but the light has been really terrible here recently

I'm also late announcing the first challenge of 2014 which is a nice easy one of anything goes!

Papercreator Happy Birthday Challenge

 I love the over the edge cards from Papercreator they're so straightforward to print and cut but look so effective once they're all put together. Plus they're perfect for this month's challenge of Happy Birthday over at the Blog
I've taken the second photo to try and show some of the layers in the kit which is called Kitty - Triple Over the Edge Card and added a sentiment by Imagine that stamps and some buttons from my stash.

Friday again

Sorry I've been so quiet lately I've been stacked out with Christmas orders for Little Gingham Bear and have lots of fairs booked in between now and Christmas.

This is my granddaughter's birthday card - can't believe where the last 12 months have gone.

Paper: Forever Friends Pink Parfait
Sentiment: Cool Dots Free Font

Just a wee Scotty post

I so love my Silhouette - this was such a quick card although I had a few problems as I forgot the stick and spray on my cutting mat so the card kept running about. Just added a button and a sentiment

Gone Fishing

Tall child needed a last minute birthday card for one of her friends - eternally organised - NOT!
What do you want on it I asked - fishing she said - 10 minutes later finished card as the Papercreator Gone Fishin Topper set was perfect for the job. The only thing I added was the embossed card and the sentiment.

Is it a dog or is it a rabbit?

Rabbit - definitely. I love this High Hopes Stamp. I have a small collection and love all of them as they're perfect for my style. I made this card ages ago but have been such a rubbish blogger lately that I never got round to posting it.

Pink or Blue It's up to You

 There's another new challenge at Papercreator today and it's pink or blue.

I've used one of the countdown to Christmas stepper cards for my project - the number of days is according to Google the amount of days left - not to worry you or anything.
I'm going to have it sat on my stall today at Burton Road in Lincoln - you can drop in and meet owls if you happen to be passing.

Fairytale Friday

Image: TEDDYBEA_277 (precoloured)
Background: Birds Cards Cut file 
Sentiments: Whimsy Cards & Blonde Moments
Card Base: Silhouette Cameo

Can't believe it's Friday round again already. Although it's a good day as it's sausage and chips day so hubby doesn't need a pack up.
I just managed to sneak in with my card this morning as I've been having awful laptop issues again this week - fingers crossed it seems on so far today.
I've managed to blag the stall next to some real live owls tomorrow at a craft fair I'm doing so am really really excited - I have been instructed to sneak one home as hubby would love one as a pet - not gonna happen!!

Ikkle Bunny

Another one from the Papercreator mega bundle of toppers - this bunny comes in a square but I had to cut her out for my card as she just didn't look right with the circular base. As with all the others you get a sheet of toppers and an A4 backing paper sheet although this stars one is a left over from a Forever Friends kit
