Fluffy on the Lily

A very clean and simple card today I don't think I've ever made a card with no embellishments on before! This lovely image is 'Fluffy on the Lily' by Wee Stamps/Whimsy Stamps, how cute is he!
Im entering it into the following challenges: Stampin for the weekend - Show us your style (CAS), Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes, Whimsy Stamps Challenge - Anything but square and My Mum's Craft Shop - Your Favourite Stamp.

I'm having real trouble photographing my cards at the moment, I think my new house is a bit darker inside than my old one which had lots of spot lights in the ceiling. I will keep persevering though!

My Sister in Law has just moved into a new home, so when I saw this card from Kittie I knew it would be perfect for her!
So I shamelessly CASE'd Kittie's card (with her permission!) and this is my version:

Thnk you so much Kittie for letting me steal your design!

I'm amazed at how many punches I have that had never been used, the bird, square and butterfly were all years old and never used! And after seeing Kitties cards with all those flowers and leaves I went a bit mad over at the craft barn and bought lots of lovely Memory Box and Poppy Stamps dies!

Punches: Bird, Butterfly and heart (all manufacturer unknown), square - Dovecraft, Grass - Woodware, Ash Branch - Leone EM Pty Ltd.
Dies: Leafy Branch and Flower Mound - Memory Box, Grassland Border - Poppy Stamps, fleur de lis rectangles - Spellbinders
Papers: Desert Blooms - First Edition

On a Roll!

This card is available in my Etsy shop

Managed to get another card made this evening, I'm on a roll at the moment!

I found this image part coloured in my paper scrap box from when I moved so I dusted it off, finished her and made her into a card for the Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge blog 'at the park' and for Cute Card Thursday 'Punch Drunk'

Digi Stamp: Mo's Digital Pencil 'Penelope's Wagon'
Papers: K&Co 'Berry Swwet'
Punch: Martha Stewart

Hopefully I'll be able to keep this rate of crafting up, I love my new craft room and can't keep out at the moment!

Have you Herd?

This card is avaliable in my Esty store here.

Well its still raining here and it looks like it may do all summer!

You cant keep me out of my new craft room at the moment! This card was made with a sketch from Sketch Saturday turned on its side and an old favourite Penny Black stamp.

I'm entering this card into: Sketch Saturday, The pretty little ribbon 'lots of layers' and the Wild Orchid Challenge 'Anything Goes'

Stamp: Penny Black 'Ladies Divine'
Papers: MME 'ooh lala'
Sentiment and inside Stamp: Ellzybells 'a little birdie told me'
Flowers: Wild Orchid crafts
Tag: Spellbinders 'fancy tags two' (cut into smaller shape)

With a bit of computer wizardry and a pack of poundland sticker paper I've managed to make a sticker for the back of my cards too, that saves me buying a custom made stamp.
