And finally... Some Cards!

I know, it's such a shock, I can still make cards! I was beginning to worry!

Here are a few that I made at Clare's house while we all caught up after our Xmas break.This is the first time that I've really put the Everyday Button Bits set from PTI to good use! I love this little hot air balloon stamp, especially living in Bristol, this will certainly come in handy during the summer months leading up to the Balloon Fiesta!

Have made use of this gorgeous spotty BoBunny paper and co-ordinating PTI cardstock & buttons.

Card No.2 is one of 2 fully stamped cards. Having only really taken an interest in stamping a few months ago, this is a real achievement for me! Will be interested to know what you think! Have used several PTI stamps(Thanks Clare :D)Stampin' Up and PTI inks and Cardstock.
Card includes: Fancy Flourishes, Text Style and Mega Mixed Messages, I've also used the butterfly and coin image from Amy Butlers set by K&Co, that I was given for Xmas.

Here's a little close up of my stamping, and also my embossed butterfly! I'm really proud of this.

This last card is also another fully stamped card. For this one i may have used up my monthly, maybe even my quarterly allowance of pink! :0} I've also used PTI's Fancy Flourishes, Polka Dots Basics and Damask Designs, cardstock and ink. I added a few pink gems to give the flourish a little extra jazz and topped it off with a Techniques Tuesday Sentiment by Ali Edwards.

Thanks for stopping by!

How's this for inspiration?

Hi everyone,

I know it's been tooooooo long, but i just never seem to find the time make a real go of this, so any advise would be much appreciated!

Anyways... I've been splurging on new supplies to help inspire me, becasue until Wednedsay this week i had not done one crafty little thing since the week leading up to Christmas! Not a card, a layout or even a doodle on my notepad in work! But hopefully i'm now back in the groove, mainly due to these...

Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird range - So delicious I had to buy it in both 12x12 and 6x6!!! (Yum!)

and MME's Be Loved - The colours are not ones i'd normally go for but the patterns were gorgeous, however, they have really bowled me over seeing them in person! I'm certainly looking forward to getting into these!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend and I shall be back later with my Crafty achievements from the last week!

Thanks for reading!
