Some people...

...add such joy to life.
I had so much fun making this card and made more effort of it. I used Websters Pages, such lovely papers.
I made a removable tag that sits behind the card. It's my interpretation on Laura's sketch 64. It was about time I entered in a challenge and '2sketches 4you' always have lovely ideas.
I used 3 different collections of stamps; Whiff of Joy, Crafty Secrets and Papermania.

Latte Adirondack ink, Marianne Design dies, Making Memories brad, Petaloo silk flower, Prima flower, Hero Arts, Creative Imaginations metal flower, pearl paper.

Little Monsters

A final Halloween post.
We don't really celebrate this at all, but it's becoming more and more of fashion here. Some kids in the neighbourhood might dress up and ring our bell, so we always keep sweets at the ready.
The next 2 cards fit with my previous one and make a set of 3 Halloween cards.
The first card is colored with Copics.

 The next card is colored with watercolors.

I just adore Crafty Secret stamps. I love the vintage images of the children.
It is almost Halloween and it's getting bigger and bigger in the UK. So I make a few seasonal cards each year and it gives me a reason to dig out my favourite stamps.
The frame is cut with the Cricut and I think I used Accent Essentials, not sure anymore...

I know we don't have Thanksgiving in the UK, but it doesn't mean I can't make a turkey card...
Mr. Turkey turned out rather large, so I put him on one of my larger cards.
Got to love the paper as it 's Basic Grey again.

Finally a Cricut card. It has been a while, I know and I have all these lovely carts just lying here.
This card was made with Create A Critter and the images are just so cute.

Tilda with present

I have been quite busy today. At least I got some useful things done, besides just crafting, which is also useful... The downstairs has been cleaned, laundry done and hanging outside to dry and my lamb stew is gently simmering for tonight's supper. This is my last post for today and if you like Tilda, well...

Little one

Hi, A quick baby card to share, made with the Cricut Stamping Cartridge.
I used a pink cardbase with vellum as the background paper. I cut the elements out of pink Coordinations cardstock and changed the color slightly with Copics. I stamped black polka dot flowers on the sentiment. The pram is cut in Making Memories polka dot vinyl. I 'm not sure if the whole layout works, but at least I got my Cricut in action again. It has been a while...

Wishes in pink and blue

I 'm in the mood. It is so hard to resist Eline's Vintage papers.
I had to use them again. They are just so lovely.
When my DH saw this card. he said:" You're again using the same stamps." I replied that these are my winter/Christmas stamps. Then he said:" Ah, well then I need to get you some different ones this weekend." Isn't he sweet, the supporter of my hobby? So funny.
Here she comes... coloured with watercolors, one of my artworks that I prepared when on holiday.
Spellbinders Create a Flake 1, a button and some Viva pearl pen.
More posts should be following, but first some breakfast: hot coffee and a peanutbutter and chocolate cookie, home made, yummie! I found some Reese's peanutbutter cups and pulled a recipe of the web. Not good for my wasteline, but who cares right now?
