Soft Yellow & Black

A quick card for the Dynamic Duos challenge this week. These are PTI stamps. I've used this card design for sympathy cards before in black and white, but never used these colours before. Mmmm. Let's just say it's growing on me!

Happy Mother's Day

It's Mother's Day in the UK today and I've been round to my Mum this morning with some flowers, a card and a homemade bakewell tart. We visited my Mother in law in the week as well with her card and present.

Have a good Mother's Day today if you are a Mum, have a Mum or are missing a Mum. xx

Happy Anniversary

A very simple card to show you today which I'm entering into the CAS(E) this sketch challenge this week. I used Clearly Besotted stamps 'Paired Up' for this and it was so quick to make.

Girly Birthday card

Just a quick post today to show you a card I made for a 15 year old's birthday. She was thrilled with it.

More cards from my favourite stamp set at the moment - Spring Blooms from Clearly Besotted stamps. I can't praise these stamps enough. They give beautiful results every time. The polka dot paper & sentiment stamp is from Papertrey Ink.

With the weather improving this week and daffodils starting to appear, I thought I'd make a spring card. I used the stamp set Spring Blooms from Clearly Besotted stamps. I've made a few cards already with this stamp - not bad considering it was only released on the first of March!! I'll post some more pictures of the other cards too during the week.

I've entered this card for the Dynamic Duos challenge this week too.

Banner cards

It was my son's birthday and my friend's 60th birthday this week, so I made some banner cards. Quick and easy to do, they can suit men or women's birthdays.

We dropped my son off at Harwich last night so he could catch the ferry over to Holland for the start of his Europe trip. During the next two weeks he will be visiting Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Warsaw, Moscow, St. Petersburg and Copenhagen. I gave him such a big hug last night when we saw him off!

I've had a delivery of new stamps arrive this morning from Clearly Besotted Stamps, so I'm going to have a play with them. Have a good weekend.
