We R Memory Keepers logo

 goodies on our creations this week. You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we'd love to see them.


My project for this weeks challenge was incredibly quick & simple to create using the Pillow Box Punch Board. I'd not used a punch board before & was surprised how quick & easy they are to use.
I used some Prima paper to punch out my pillow box & once assembled I decorated it with twine, a Simon Says Stamp tag & sentiment & then popped a pretty Prima flower on it to finish.

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 





It's a very short & sweet post from me again this week as I am still suffering from my lung infection, one lung has healed the other still has crackles on it so I'm on my second course of antibiotics & I stupidly decided to return to work on Sunday as I was feeling a bit better. I hadn't taken into account that resting at home & feeling a bit better is a whole lot different from being fit enough to work a 13 hour shift caring for other people & I feel totally exhausted & regret not listening to the doctor now, silly me.
That's me finished for today, thanks for stopping by

Winter Birthday - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
The sun is shining & it's really mild here today & I'm keeping my fingers crossed we don't get the snow we are forecast tomorrow! That's a sure sign I'm getting old as I used to love the snow lol.

Lawn Fawn logo

 goodies on our cards this week. You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we'd love to see them.


I've used some Lawn Fawn stamps & dies on today's card, the cute Winter Sparrows stamp & dies set, Hugs die & the presents are from the Home For The Holiday's stamp & dies set.
I've also used Simon Says Stamps Falling Snow stencil to make it more obvious my card is for a Winter birthday. Again my card is very simple this week due to being unwell & as simple as it is this took me days to create due to only being able to sit at my desk for short periods as I ache so much. Thankfully my antibiotics must be working as I am feeling a little better today, fingers crossed it lasts!

The copic colours I've used are -
Sparrows - E44, E43, E41 / C3, C1, C00 / R12, R01, R000, presents - G43, G21, G40 / Y23, Y21, Y000 / R12, R01, R000 / C3, C1, C00.
