I made today's card using inspiration from Aga's cards, check them out here. I stamped an outline floral flower then stamped a couple of full flowers to give it a bit of depth and filled a few gaps in with a leaf stamp and finished it off with the sentiment. The colours I have used are the latest combo from Color Throwdown which I'm adding my card to. Thanks for popping in...

Hi Peeps, I've been able to sneak out to my craft room for a couple of hours this afternoon...TGIF....and an early start on stamping....woohoo....it should be a good weekend! As soon as I saw the latest CAS(E) this Sketch, I knew I had to use it. I also really liked the the colour combo from colourQ so it made an easy card for me to make. I love these funky flowers and I tend to use them a bit, I stamped them with my trusty DI's then fussy cut them. I also stamped a background then stamped some leaves under the flowers to just give it that little more interest then mounted the flowers over the leaves. I'm also adding my card to the latest CASology challenge whose cue card is 'Pretty'. Thanks for stopping by...

I'm on a bit of a roll today with my cards, they are just pouring out of me...lol. Today a friend has asked me to make some cards for her so that she can give them to her clients. I've never done this sort of thing before but luckily she likes the CAS look which works for me. So, this is one of the cards I have made for her...for this card I have used the latest sketch from Try Stampin' On Tuesday and the DT at Cards in Envy want a Gratitude card....check!

It's Saturday and I'm in my craft room stamping <big smile> Todays card I have taken up the challenge from the team at Colour Throwdown and used pink, green & gold for a CAS Christmas card. Just LOVE my new Brusho's!!

Another Christmas card I made yesterday but have only now had a chance to post...a very CAS Christmas card that I'm posting to the latest challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches and Winter Wonderland where anything goes as long as it's a Christmas theme. Thanks for popping by....

Another card...this one is for my Christmas stash...again I have made the background with my new Brusho's, I then embossed it with a Christmas embossing folder then used the latest sketch from the DT at Jingle Belles...I'm also adding it to the latest Winter Wonderland challenge which is Anything Goes.
It's been a while again since I have sat at my desk to have a bit of crafting fun....I just don't know where my weekends are going at the moment. Anyway, back to my card...I actually had made this background a couple of weeks with my new Brusho's but hadn't got around to doing anything with it so when I started surfing the challenge blogs I was very pleased to see the latest challenge over at Paper Craft Crew as it fitted into what I had already done....and here is how it finished up.

My second card for the day and I just LOVE it!! Again, I have used my new Brusho colours and I have cased a card by Karen from Snippets...check it out here...and to be honest it was her beautiful cards that she has made using the Brusho's that inspired me to buy them. I'm adding my card to CAS-ual Fridays current challenge which is a Tic Tac Toe...I have picked 'stenciling, spritzing and distressing' and to our local ABC challenge...S is for spritzing.
ABC - S is for Stencilling & Spritzing
Well I've been missing in action from my desk of late...I started a new job 4 weeks ago, had a milestone birthday and a camping trip with friends so sadly my craft time is the thing that suffers. Needless to say today is a good day as it's Saturday and I have a play date stamping with two good friends to top it off! For this card I have used my new set of Brusho colours that I got for my birthday...still perfecting the technique but really like them and can see they have a lot of amazing potential. This background was made from using the excess from another masterboard and it ended up with just the right colour combo to match this little robin I had stamped ages ago but hadn't got around to using. I'm entering this card into the latest challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches and into our local ABC Challenge...R is for Red Robin.
And this is the card I made my good friend Robyn for her birthday last month. I actually made it before we went on our overseas holiday...and thank goodness I did because there was no way I would have been organised if I hadn't as I have only just now got a chance to post it....life sure gets in the way sometimes...lol...
Robyn knows that I don't really 'do' construction cards so was very happy to receive it on her special day.
Thanks for popping in and I hope your weekend is off to a great start.

A big hello to all! We've have been away on holidays for the last 5 weeks so it has been a while since I have been crafting and it's a good feeling to be sitting at my desk playing. I must admit I struggled a bit with this card...it's very different for me and it took a bit to get my mojo going again but I am happy with the end result. I'm posting it to the current challenges over at:
