It seems that here in the UK, (in between rain showers and the occasional hail!) we are starting to see signs of spring. There are some beautiful trees in my street which have lovely pink and white blossom. It doesn't last very long, so we have to enjoy it while it is here.
So, in honour of the lovely blossom, here is my interpretation using Sheena blossom stamps and water colour pencils.
I have stamped the branch on to the base card, and then applied the flowers and leaves in a decoupage style, with oodles of 3d glee gel!
A few butterflies and a lovely sentiment, and my card is complete.
I hope you like my little bit of Spring, and that the 'real' Spring is kind to us this year!
Thanks for visiting.

After what has been a very industrious day so far, I have decided to sit down and spend a little time in blogland.
My first post today. looks like a card...but that's because my photography isn't very good! It is actually a gift box which I made using some grand nesties.
Finally my dimensional flowers have been made using Britannia dies which I matched in with the very elegant fairy gloves!
I hope you like her!
Bye for now.

Over at Fab n Funky we have our new challenge theme which is 'Bright Christmas'.
We have a great sponsor for this week in Bunny Zoe Crafts, but unfortunately they have decided to close their shop, so they wanted toilet you know that you will be able to grab a fabulous 30% discount from their store if you want to pop over there and grab a bargain.
Here's the best bit - the ribbon is actually off of a gift box that I received last Christmas......so it must be infused with Christmas spirit - lol!!
So - a very simple card, but I hope you like it.
Look forward to seeing you over at Fab n Funky.

I am back today with a lovely Sherri Baldy stamp which I have coloured with the Vintage Spectrum Sparkles set.
As you can see, I have coloured my image on water cooler card, which means that you can move the sparkle ink about much more easily, either with water of a clear sparkle pen.
I coloured her is lovely soft colours to match my papers an the lovely ribbon that I found in my ribbon box.
As for the rest, in keeping with the sentiment, I have 'kept it simple'.
Thanks for visiting today.

Today's card uses a really run image from Digistamp Boutique, featuring 'Ralph', and he comes with a 'par-rect' sentiment too!

But here I am on Saturday evening, taking a few minutes out to post a card that I made with the Crafters Companion Kimono stamps and paper pad.
I coloured the lady with Spectrum Aquas and then picked one of the lovely glittered papers to cut out some embellishments to match the theme.
I hope you like it! Now I'm off to make some dinner...and then maybe a little more crafting time. :-)
Thanks for stopping by.

We have a lovely sponsor this week - a Day for Daisies - and they are offering a voucher to spend at their on line shop as a prize.
I chose this delicate little fairy for my card and you can find her right here.
I have kept the card fairly simple but have used a lovely detailed Tonic die to frame my little fairy....and I resisted the urge to apply glitter and pearls.....I just added the tiniest bit of sprakle to her wings.....well you have to for a fairy don't you??
So that's my card for today. I do hope that you will pop over to Fab n Funky and join in with this week's challenge. Look forward to seeing you there.
