Hello again

I have been playing and managed to make this card so far.  I am blogging just now before I forget and before the daylight disappears to take photo.  For a change I decided to do a A5 card instead of a square card as not done one for ages - too comfy doing square me thinks, hehehe - and I must admit I was struggling with this one, alot of flower shuffling around the paper was done!.

The image is an Elizabeth Bell one from Sugar Nellie, coloured with my watercolour pencils.  Backing paper is from a DCVW Spring Stack.  Flowers are from a stash, as is the fabric butterfly.  Sentiment is from a DCVW quote sticker stack.  Tools used on the card were my Nestie Swirly template thingies.  The challenges covered are:-

Magnolia Baby Boy Card

Good morning peeps hope all in well out there in Blogland..  Spent a lovely afternoon yesterday with family and they were even brave enough to stay for dinner and sample some of my homemade cooking.  (not checked-up on the day yet to see if they ok....hehehe).  Today we were originally planning to have a wee day trip somewhere, but with a change of plan I am now hoping for a day of crafting at my table... lol ...  (my arm really needed twisted there didn't it!). 

Coloured this fabby Baby Edwin image with my watercolour paints (still going strong for over 5 years - not bad for only £2.99 from The Works)  The blue ducky paper is a small leftover piece from my scrap drawer.  Little ducky brad is from stash and sentiment printed off computer.  Tools used were Swiss Dots & Little One embossing folders from Cuttlebug and my Oval Nesties.  The challenges covered are:-

    Lazy Sunday Afternoon

    The weather has been glorious here all weekend so I'm afraid I haven't done match crafting - one card in two days to be exact!!.  I have been pottering about the garden and the house - it's been great!!!  Had a mini spring clean upstairs and managed to gather 2 black bags full of stuff to hand in to one of the local charity shops.  Did a wee bit of weeding in the back garden followed by a lot of sitting in the garden watching the world go by and admiring my handy work!!  Washing Basket completely empty - Yay!!.  Ironing basket full to the gunnel's - Boo!!

    The image is from LOTV, The backing paper is from DCVW Spring Paperstack.  Flowers, sentiment and ribbon are from stash.  The challenges covered are:-

    Evening folks.  Looks like I'm having to dig the wellies back out the cupboard as we have been issued with a weather warning here for the next few days.  I think it is partly my fault as I had secretly done a rain dance at the weekend (to save me doing some tidying up in the garden .... serves me right. 

    The FF image is actually a piece of scrap card which I have "Nestied".  Charm and sentiment are from stash.  Also used is my Cuttlebug Swirl embossing folder, Martha Stewart Daisy border punch and some blue Liquid Pearls.  The challenged covered are:-
