New Tilda and Debbie's Blog Candy

I just needed to use my new Tilda she is just so cute!!! and Debbie has some great blog Candy up for grabs here.
The challenge is to make a girlie Birthday Card with ribbon!!
I have used ribbon on this card but it isn't obvious at first glance... the happy birthday strip along the dotty paper is pink ribbon which has been covered in sticky happy birthday white ribbon!!! Does that make sense!!
I used twinkling H2o's on her wings this time and the papers are CC cupcakes.
Hope you all have a Happy Sunday and the weather is as good here today as it was yesterday!!
Thanks for looking Sue :o)

CCT one for the girls/ Burns Unit

Let me explain the title for is my card for CCT girls just wanna have fun but it is also going to a burns unit in the USA.
I spent the day spring cleaning my conservatory yesterday lets just say I like things to be clean but I don't like cleaning!!
So last night at 9.30pm when I finally sat down to do a bit of blog hopping I wasn't best pleased.. I always try and visit my sisters from the SBS9 on a weekend so that was where I started and one of the first blogs I looked at was Debbie and she had a link to her daughters blog as she has decided to share her story of a terrible accident that she had two years ago, you can read Sara's story here.
She is challenging you to make a card to send to the burns unit where she was treated to brighten someone this is where this card is going and hopefully it will do just that!!!
The stamp is a HH and the papers are DCWV Nana's kids and they are all sparkly

CCT Men & Boys/SBS9 Green & Brown Challenge

The challenge this week on CCT is men and boys. I bought this stamp along with 2 others from the range some time ago and I have never used them , then I was blog hopping the other day and noticed several girls from across the water were using them so I thought I ought to EZ mount them and ink them up!!!They are from Hanna Stamps and he is called Riley Moose.
The papers are from Dovecraft.
My sister Suzann from SBS9 also has a brown and green challenge going on in our group so I decided to use him for both.
Thankfully I don't know anyone who needs a get well card at the moment so I will put him in my stash.
Did manage to get a sparkly pink cherry on top of his cake but it's only a very little one!!!

First 12x12 Scrapbooking Page

As I told you in my post below I went to a scrapbooking party yesterday evening,it is a company called craft ed the lady running it also called Sue... it was her first one so we were her guinea pigs.There were only 5 of us there you take along a photo and you all do the same basic layout then you add your own photo and personalise it. The theme was family and as this is the only photo that I have with my mum dad sister and me in I decide to do this one even though its not a terribly good photo.
It was a fun evening and we all enjoyed it, Sue did really well as I think she was a little nervous and of course I spent some money!!!

Ila's Sketch Challenge

Ila has a sketch challenge over on her blog Artfully Ila I love here work as her colouring is awesome and she always uses lots of layers and elements on her cards but this is not my natural style so I struggle a little bit with these types of sketches!! I had a couple of spare hours last night as the Masters Golf was on the TV yet again so I decided to have a go and this is what I came up with. I think I have managed to get everything in!!
Stamp is HH and the papers are from DCWV Spring Stack the flower is from flower doodle and the ribbon is from stash.

Tilda Challenge Stitch me up

I just wanted to use this stamp and I made this card tonight just because!!! then I realised it fits the challenge on the Tilda challenge last week... a bit late I know but better late than never!!!
There are so many gorgeous Tilda's at the moment it is difficult to stop buying them!!
I bought these papers at craft central today they are PM Antique Cream collection I bought them because I don't have many brown or cream papers and there are some really nice ones in this stack.
I am quite pleased with this card I think I might make another in different colours!!!
Thanks for looking Sue :o)

The Best Day!!

I have had the best day today...I have been crafting for most of the day and I have so enjoyed it!! I could get used to this but I guess it wouldn't be such a pleasure if I could do it all the time!!!!
This card has been made for a young couple who have recently been renovating an old house and moved in last week now I can here you thinking this isn't a new home card!!! ahh well you see they have just come back from a short holiday in Tokyo and while they were there he proposed to her so I have made this card hoping to kill two birds and all that ( I must say i don't like that saying) Gosh I am waffling today!!
It has been inspired by Michelle from the card grotto check out her blog the cards are amazing... my thinking is she is also a young person so I am hoping it will appeal to my young friends!!
Promise this is the last today!!
Thanks for looking Sue :o)

CCT Thing with Wings

The challenge this week on Cute Card Thursday is things with wings.
Sorry I have been on Post overload today but I am home from work and what better way to spend the day than crafting!!!
I have used high hopes dunno duck and CWC cupcake papers the sentiment is an Anita's stamp I picked up cheap somewhere and the ribbon and flowers are from my stash.
Thanks for looking Sue :o)

Thank You Gina

Thank you so much to the very kind and generous Gina from our SBS9 for the lovely blog candy that arrived today.
Her dear partner Dave choose my entry for Gina's sketch challenge that we run on the SBS9, I entered two and a felt sure it was going to be the manly one but no it was the very girly Easter one that he liked!!! who says men don't have a feminine side!!!
I have a set of the wonderful Laura Ashley contemporary papers that Gina was most upset to find I had been out and bought last weekend but I must say I love them so much I don't think I will have any trouble using a second pack, there was also a very nice memory book brads and flowers some great stamped images and a little set of studio G new baby stamps which I forgot to put the the photo, and of course not forgetting the gorgeous image folder with the cutest little PB duck.

Good Morning

This is a little image folder which is winging its way to Jo today after she was let down by paypal!!!
The ribbon isn't quite in the correct place and you can't tie it.. this is what comes of making things when you are tired!!
The holes for the ribbon weren't in line so I had to cover them up best I could, but I think she will be more happy with whats inside!!
I have a couple of days holiday from work and was hoping to do the garden but sadly it is not gardening weather here at the moment. Hopefully it might clear up later. Hope you all have a good day
