Hi everyone. Today I thought I would bring you a very simple card using the lovely….and very large Poinsettia stamp from Stamp Addicts. As you can see it takes up a lot of space on a 4 x 4 inch card so it really is a good focal point.
Now I am no horticulturalist, but I know that poinsettias don't come in blue…….but a little bit of poetic licence is allowed in craft, right? :-)
For this card I have kept is super simple and I have coloured and decoupaged the two elements - flowers and leaves and applied them to some nice circle nestie die cuts.
And that's really all I can say on this one, other than adding some links to some lovely challenges that I would like to enter.
Thank you all so much for stopping by today.

My last post of the day……. but I had to post this little gift set which I made for a work colleague who had just become a granny for the first time.
I thought I would make her a little 'congrats on being a granny' card using this lovely Messy Rabbit stamp…..but then it kind of turned in to something bigger.
Once that was done i thought it would be a shame not to present it nicely so I decided to make a matching box as well.
So I'm thinking it would be nice to enter a few challenges with this one, so here goes:
Thanks for visiting once again :-)
Speaking of which….don't you think that relaxing in a bath full of fragrant bubbles is one of the most indulgent ways to spend a bit of 'me' time?
I think that this particular stamp conveys that perfectly….wouldn't it be grew to be able to fil lip your bath right to the top just like that?
As you can see, I have made a departure from my usual staples and gone for some water colour pencils for a change and I have glittered up those bubbles just a little bit (I wish you could do that in real life too!)
I have used a lovely colour combination that I stumbled on for this card, whilst printing identical papers in different colours from one of my Polkadoodles CDs (Pretty Sweet). I really love the mauve and olive together as it's soft and a little bit different to the usual pairings that I use.
So that's my very quick post for today, and finally here are some challenges that I would like to enter:
Thanks for visiting.

So for today it's time to forget about Christmas once again and move back to all things Spring in the form of a gorgeous Fairy Glenn stamp from Sugar Nellie.
I also made a couple of flower embellishments using Britannia flower dies in large and medium, plus some scraps of paper that I had 0 waste not want not as they say :-)
So , on to the lovely challenges that I would like to enter today:
Thanks for visit if today and I hope you all have a relaxing Sunday.

We have lovely weather here in my neck of the woods - it's Saturday morning, the sun is shining and we are expecting a temperature of a heart warming 21 degrees today……fantastic for the UK in May!
So what do I decide to do….well post up a Christmas card of course!
You know I popped on to someone else's blog today and they had a days 'till Christmas counter….apparently 222 days to go. I guess I don't have to panic about Christmas cards just yet then!
Here is a card that I made some time ago, using some stamps that Stamp Addicts sent to me.
I love the Santa - he is one of my favourites and really nice to colour if you want to get practicing with a bit of shading.
The trees are also a stamp and I used multi tonal ink pad and then finished them of with a coating of Crafters Companion glitter spray.
So - time for a few challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

I then followed the sketch exactly to produce the card that you see here.
Hope you like it :-)
Here are some lovely challenges which I am going to enter before getting outside to enjoy a little bit of that sunshine
Thanks for visiting today.

The theme for this month is, 'In the Garden' and as you can see, I have interpreted the theme quite loosely here!…..but that's OK so long as you use a stamped image or digi in your project.
Last but not least, here are some other lovely challenges that I would like to enter:
Hope you like it and I look forward tossing all you lovely creations over on Crafty Little Fairies this month.
Bye for now.
