Hi from a very wet and cold Glasgow! Today I am going to share a lovely bright card, ideal for something cheery on a day like today.

I picked out the colours in the paper and decided to colour in the "Thanks" with the matching colours. I am really pleased with the result.

Saleabration is coming to an end!

I really can't believe how quickly the Saleabration from Stampin Up has gone this time. There have been some gorgeous stamp sets, papers and embellishments to get, though I have only went for stamp sets this time. And here are a couple of cards using one stamp from one set. 

The papers I have used are Stampin' Up too, both from the same set which is called Confetti Celebration.

These cards are for my stash box, it is always handy to have a few cards put by for birthdays.  Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

"Hoppy Easter"

Hi, I've been lucky enough to have a few days crafting which resulted in an overhaul of the craft room and 3 cards in 24 hours! I know, I am in total shock!

The first card I am going to share is something different for me as it involves glitter card, not just any glitter card but Stix 2 Stardust Glitter Card which is non shed and great for people like me who are not a fan of bits of glitter everywhere.

Seeing as it is roughly a week to Easter, I thought I should make something Eastery! I bought this stamp set I used ages ago and rediscovered it in my tidy up, it's great when that happens isn't it? It is a set from MFT and comes with a selection of goodies you can stamp in the basket, so you can use it for occasions other than Easter.

I coloured it with my Promarkers, something I haven't done for a wee while.

Engagement card.

Hello, today I am going to share another engagement card I made for my lovely niece and her fiance's engagement.  I used my trusty Cameo to make this one as I wanted something pretty modern and unique.

I just love how you can pop a wee sparkly gem in the box!

Happy Mothers Day!

Hello, and Happy Mothers Day to all the lovely crafty mummys. Whether you have a kiddie or a furry baby, or are a Godmother or an auntie.

I would like to share a card I made for my sister for Mothers Day as she is my Godmother.

As some of you may know I am a Stampin Up demo, and I have used Painted Blossoms Papers and the fab Lotus Blossom Stamp Set which is part of Saleabration.
