Plant Pots

Hello ...
It's pretty miserable here today, dull and damp but hey! My city of Liverpool has been voted the friendliest city in the UK! 
Well, we are that kind of people....Except of course for the workmen who promised to be here at 8am and now it nearly 10 and still no sign.... Heck I could have had another hour in bed!

So what do you do when you have a little time and a lot of scraps? You make plant pots right? And you pretend it's Spring...

See I had all these flowers that I was going to use on a club project but after cutting them I realised they were far to small and delicate for the group to handle so I drew plant pots and coloured them 

And used up some scraps and left over painted pieces... It got to be addictive

...Before I knew it I had made 4 cards

The pots are covered in glossy dimensional... not that you can really see that
I'll share the others later in the week - One workman has just arrived, sheesh!

Have a fabulous day

Valentine Balloons

Hello there ...

I've got a couple of quick Valentine cards to share that I made last week...

I just die cut some hearts to use as a stencil and masked off the large one before adding the smaller ones

And the second one...

I'm entering these at Just Us Girls

On Valentine's day my DH bought me a gorgeous card and my favourite Chanel perfume too. Then there was a knock on the door and a delivery man stood there with a box of flowers ... Turned out  they were for my next door neighbour... He felt really bad asking me to take them in, and it made my DH feel bad too and he went off and came back with a dozen red roses for me lol!

It's been a really busy week .... The revamp work is still going on here at home and what with doctor appointments and the normal daily stuff to attend to, I had to prepare my project for tonight's Thursday club ...

Here's a peek at what I have prepared for them to do tonight... A pop up card

My cat Missy has a terrible habit of ripping things up... She's destroyed boxes, papers and even had a go at some discount vouchers on my desk.. I just managed to rescue this in time...

Before I go I'd like to thank the team at Happy Little Stampers for picking my card as a favourite in last month's challenge, I'm delighted!

Ok... Off to make hubby some lunch now ...

Have a great day

Double D Challenge

Hello again ...

I'm back today with my card for the new challenge at Double D

Dar's team is hosting the challenge Ric Rac / Zig Zag

and both teams have some wonderful creations to share up on the blog - Here's what I came up with

Well, you knew I wouldn't be using real ric rac didn't you ... So yes, stencilling once again with distress inks

This is one of the quickest card I've made, along with the stencilling I added some die cut stems and inlaid them...

A sentiment and a few sequins and that was it...

Dar is offering a Cheery Lynn  Ric Rac die to the winner

So get your thinking caps on and come join in the fun!

Wishing you a lovely day my friends

City Crafter 349 Old Stuff New Look

Good morning!

Happy Valentine's Day

It's noisy round here ... We're having the en-suite replaced and I can't wait till it's done. I'm not a fan of workmen in my home Lol! It means early mornings and noisy days with tea being served constantly... That's how are workmen keep going in the UK.

Today is City Crafter Challenge day and this week funnily enough the theme is 
Old Stuff - New Look

Picked for us by Kirsty ... Hop on over to the blog for full details

It took me ages to decide what to do ... I trawled through many of my past creations and cringed at some of the early ones, what was I thinking? Lol! In the end I decided to go with a card I did last year and one I really liked ... Here's the original

And here's the new version

I did the same curvy ink blending just using a piece of card for a template and used the same colour distress inks

The little fish I found on a web search, the colours were perfect so after saving them, I was able to resize and print them on to glossy paper, then I just hand cut them.

We have a terrific Guest Designer this week from the blog Magic Flying Boots - Click the link to go visit and I'm sure like me you will just love her creations!
Then head on over to the City Crafter Blog to see what the team have to inspire you this week.

Enjoy your day and thanks so much for stopping by

Just us Girls Card

Good Morning!
I hope you had a good weekend... It was my husband's birthday yesterday and on Saturday his eldest son and DIL came to visit so he got to see his granddaughter for the first time... I think it was his best present!

She really is a cutie...

Today I have another card to share that I'm entering at Just Us Girls 

I made another card with the same design as my GD card for Inkspirational but this time it's a top fold card with vibrant colors

I thought it would make a good Valentine's Card without the obligatory red 

As you know, I'm a huge fan of blue and green and I love these distress inks... Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon

I hope you are having a good start to the week ...

Enjoy your day
