2 Quick Cards and a Thank You

These are 2 quick make cards, a Sugar Nellie and an Easter Tilda, one of which might be winging it's way to a new friend. I'm wondering if my promarkers will arrive today?! I hope so!

Now is it me or are crafters just super friendly people or what? I've only had this blog a few days and it's lovely that people have stopped by and left me a comment, it's so nice of everyone. Plus other crafters appreciate the work that goes into a card which is nice. I just wish I'd found cardmaking earlier, it is so rewarding. I have always enjoyed being creative in different ways through writing, drawing, designing etc but this is just such a fab hobby combining lots of different techniques. 

Well today we're going to a Farm Park, Leo my little boy will just love it! Hope everyone has a lovely day, think we're going to have some decent weather today :)

Daisy and Dandelion 'Friend' Challenge Card

I've spent the morning sorting out all my parcels to be sent off for ebay from the stuff I sold over the weekend, has taken ages! I love spending the paypal money, but not so much packing em up. 

So this is my Daisy and Dandelion Challenge card, I loved making this. I adore these stamps and papers, as soon as they came out I bought all four sets, they stamp up beautifully! For the card I used Basic Grey Eva Collection papers, DCWV metallic cardstock, Papermania sweet nothings felt, Papermania brad, Smirk rub ons, Daisy and Dandelion stamps-ladybug, bird holding letter, flower (Pickles and Onion main), and Daisy and Dandelion clear stickers. 

Well, am off to have lunch now and then lug my parcels to the post office!

Magnolia Shaped Card Challenge

Oooo 2 posts, one day! This is my cupcake shaped card, for the Magnolia vs Stampavie challenge. On the second pic you can see the concertina on the cake casing which you can't on the first. Had lots of fun making this! 

I've just ordered my first promarkers after my paypal account got a big bump from selling some bits and bobs! Can't wait for those! Thanks for the lovely comments people left on my first post :) Well, shan't be long to bed since we shall lose a precious hour's sleep. Think I might have some yummy meringue pie though first, I can hear it calling...

First Post, New Blog

Well, I got a blog, I figured if I was going to enter challenges then why not go all the way and get a blog. It'll be nice for me to look back on all the bits I've made too. I've not been crafting long, about 8 months, it started with scrapbooking some piccies of my little boy and now I enjoy making cards too. So, 8 months, a lot of money later (why are crafting goodies so irresistable?!) and here I am!! 

Well this is my entry for the Sugar Bowl challenge...Spring theme, using my beautiful new gorjuss girl stamps. Am so glad I was stalking the Sugar Nellie blog waiting to find out when they were back in stock-it didn't take long for them to start selling out!!!
