Little Chick

Thank you for all your good wishes for my daughter following her recent operation.   She was discharged from hospital on Saturday and is now recovering at my niece's home.

I made this card for my great niece who celebrated her 13th birthday recently.  She looks after a few chickens and I often make her a card with a chicken on.
For this card I used a precoloured digi stamp from Beccy's Place.  It's the first time I've used this digi stamp from the set, so I'll be sharing my card over in the NBUS Challenge.  The patterned paper is from The Works.  The flowers were die cut with dies from the Creative Expression 'Daisy Blossoms' set.

Allsorts Challenge ~ 15th Birthday

The Allsorts 15th Birthday has finally arrived and what an amazing array of prizes generously donated from AALL & Create to be won!  The prizes will be shared by 15 lucky winners this week and include stamps, stencils, ephemera and washi tape.  You can enter up to 3 times, so up to 3 chances of being one of the lucky winners!



For my DT card, I used a beautiful AALL & Create stamp which I won recently over in the We Love Stamping Challenge.
The stamp is from the AALL & Create 'See You Soon (#898)' set which I inked up for the first time using Versafine Clair 'Nocture'.  I added some colour with Promarkers.  The sentiment is a stamp from the SU 'Best Year' set, stamped with Versafine Clair 'Rain Forest' to match the colours in the leaves.  Three tiny lilac pearls finished off my card.

Looking forward to seeing all your wonderful creations to help us celebrate a special birthday.

Get Well Soon

I've just realised that I haven't posted anything on my blog, apart from scheduled DT and GD cards, since the beginning of April.  Our daughter was unexpectedly taken into hospital last month for another major operation, so my blog and visiting blogs I follow have taken a back seat for a few weeks.  I made this card for Jo a month ago, but due to her operation being cancelled three times at the last minute, we could only give it to her last week when she finally had her operation.

The patterned paper is from The Works.  I used one of the patterned papers to die cut the Memory Box 'Chloe Stem'.  The sentiment is a stamp from the SU 'Humming Along' set, stamped with Versafine Clair 'Glamorous'.

As everything I used was from my snippets drawer, apart from the card blank, I'll be sharing my card over in The Playground this week.

Allsorts Challenge ~ Spots and Stripes

The theme of the Allsorts Challenge this week has been chosen by Lorraine and she would love to see lots of 'Spots and Stripes' this week.  As always, there is also the option of Anything Goes.

I used a Lisa Horton 'Padded Quilt' embossing folder for the background.  The patterned paper is from Anna Marie Designs.  I die cut a flower and leaves using dies from the Creative Expression 'Daisy Blossoms' set. The circles are Memory Box 'Stitched Circle Layers' die cuts.  The sentiment is a stamp from the Happy Little Stampers 'Birthday Friends' set, stamped with Versafine Clair 'Purple Delight'. 

There are some lovely to be won from prizes from Stampendous.

Just one more week until our 15th Birthday, please share our logo to help spread the word.  There are amazing prizes to be won, so be sure join us again next week.
