Good Morning peeps,
Thank you so much for the beautiful Birthday cards & gifts I've received from some lovely blogging friends, I will be doing the rounds later to thank you all.
I had one of those fabby days yesterday where I got loads of things done in my craft room, not card making but cleaning, tidying and sorting which I know isn't everyones cup of tea but being a neat freak I love doing lol.
Today is new challenge day at
and this fortnight we have a fabby sketch for you by our lovely Nadell.
We were thrilled to have a whopping 92 entries for our very first challenge, we'd love to have you join us again this challenge. We are going to be having a top 3 so now all the entries are in the DT are busy trying to decide who is their favourite, not easy I can tell you.
Before I share my card with you I want to wish a very Happy Birthday to my lovely new teamie Bea who is obviously fabulous being born on the same day as moi lol.
Sentiment - Magnolia
Medium - distressed inks
Papers - Websters Pages
Tools - Woodware mini butterfly punch, Nesties, Martha Stewart vintage floral punch around the page
I've added some gorgeous gathered lace behind the nesties for a bit of added texture, and distressed the paper edges with Picket Fence crackle paint.
It was so nice having such lovely weather to be able to photograph my card outside, the picture is always much clearer but for some reason it never seems to show up the sparkle but as you well know by now it's definitely there lol.
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Stamp Magic - Easter, Magnolia Down Under - Easter, Stampin For The Weekend - Easter, CRAFT- Easter, Delightful Challenges - Easter, Totally Papercrafts - Spring, Top Tip Tuesday - Spring has sprung, 7 Kids College Fund - Easter/Spring, Flutterby Wednesday - soft pastels, Little Red Wagon - Easter, Penny's - Easter, Die Cut Dreams - Easter, Craft Your Days Away - Easter, Tellens Place - Easter, Creative Inspirations - Easter
Jodie has made her first ever birthday cake for me, aww. She used a giant cupcake mould and it took forever to cook, or maybe that was just me being impatient as the smell was tormenting me and I wanted it lol. Out came the recipe books and she was even daft enough to ask me the queen of packet mixes for advice! Naturally I sent her off to ask hubby as I didn't have a clue, my skills in the kitchen consist of cleaning it, and as far as what goes on in that oven it's safer for everyone that it's none of my business lol.
Before I go I want to say a big thank you to all of you lovely peeps who left such sweet comments on my niece Gemma's card, she loved reading them, and if you missed it scroll down a little bit more to the next post and take a peek it's beautiful.
That's me done peeps, I've loads of you to catch up with so I'd best get a move on.
Thanks for stopping by
