Lovely as a tree & So Swirly

this is one of the cards i demoed last night, i watercoloured the tree with the inkpads to give it some subtle colour.
Greenhouse Garden, this is the set that stampin up are donating money from for Haiti - what a great excuss to buy stamps!

This concertina box is perfectly sized to hold cards or letters in, i used the christmas jingle papers, which are pretty universal without the christmassy stickers added.
my hubbys valentine, its a shadow box card with loads of love stamps used, i masked the truck so i could add a background of trees

A simple card for a wee quine (called grace !!) using bold birthdays. regal rose and rose red are wonderful colours for female cards.

Flight of the butterfly Easle card, i love this set, not only because i love butterflies but its such a fresh looking set thats simple to use

Flight of the Butterfly

More snow today, everyones getting bored of it but i have to say all this crafty time suits me fine! although i am using spring colours so part of me must be hoping for spring - but that could be months away!! i'm so glad i opted for the more expensive (and very comfy) wellies as they've been used lots over the last couple of months
anyway- i used
flight of the butterfly stamps, certainly celery and so saffron card and certainly celery and barely banana ink.
i'm going to order the matching punch so i can mass produce butterflies- i love this set!

Animal Stories

These papers didn't really jump out at me from the catalogue, but once they're cut up they are lovely!

i've made the card holder at the top, a mini-book, a banner for a special boys room and a 12x12 LO and i still have loads left from the pack - i have the matching stamp set aswell so i'll have to make a stack of cards with the scraps

Think Pink!

i don't really "do" pink much, but i had my pink stash out for Jacquis challenge so i decided to have a play about. the bottom picture is a treat pouch, i'm planning this for a Make and Take at a craft group i'm visiting soon
