A Few cards with Simon Says

Hello Hello!

I made a few cards with some of the recent Simon Says Stamp card kist recently and I thought I would share them with you here.

I've really been trying to use those kits but sometimes they're just to pretty to break into!

Here's one with the May 2014 Kit

And another with the June 2014 Kit

Hope you like them!

More Stars and Stripes

Hello hello!

I saw a very cute star-shaped card on Blogland the other day and so I decided to have me a go.

It's quite a mini card because my star dies aren't very big but I managed to incorporate some stripes (this is my second entry for the Lawnscaping challenge) and a few trendy bits such as sequins and neon. I think the neon trend in crafting has gone rather quiet recently and you will not believe how big my pot of glitter is, so I'm bringing it back! Lol!

I even managed to pick up some glitter and shine on my camera!

Here is my card

Thanks for looking today!

Stars and stripes

Hello there

I'm joining in with the Lawnscaping Challenge again this week which is to incorporate Stars and Stripes into your projects.

I wanted to make a little card to pop in with a return of some duplicate items I got sent by mistake recently. You've got to support those small businesses who provide all that lovely stash to play with, we wouldn't want them closing down now would we? Far too much of that happening at the moment, more's the pity =(

This is my card

I really wanted to have a go at no lines colouring after seeing a fab tut on the Lawn Fawn blog recently, I'm quite pleased with how that cute little ducky turned out!

Thanks for looking today!

A Lawn Fawn Teacher Card

Good Afternoon!

Wow, it's so dark and dismal here right now, we are experiencing some really heavy showers and all the lights are on in the house, the clouds are so black!

As a result I have struggled to get a decent picture of my card for the lawnscaping challenge this week.

I used the new-to-me Science of Love set from Lawn fawn to make a teacher thank you card along with the banner tag from the stitched Journal card set and sentiment from #awesome. The hexagons are heat embossed along with the sentiment and the little calculators face (I used my embossing pen to do this, I was surprised it still worked, it must be atleast 7 years old!)

Wanna see?

Thanks for visiting today!

Card Sketch with Make the Day Special


My Lawn Fawn obsession continues as we head towards father's day on June 15th so I decided to get ahead of the game by making a few cards for all the fathers in my life.

For the first one I used the challenge sketch from Make the Day Special and was inspired by this fabulous mini card from Vanessa's Blog. She really does make some gorgeous cards!

The second was for the last Lawnscaping challenge 'Distress it' but I didn't ever get round to entering it.

My post is short, as is my time but I will be back soon with another Lawn Fawn card (natch!) for their latest challenge x
