Pink and Yellow, Pink and Yellow .......

Sorry I was getting carried away there with my title post had that blooming song in my head - black and yellow , black and yellow, black and yellow!!! lol
I'm sure you know the one I mean - what colours were they? lolx
A little Easter card for you, not a bunny in sight I decided to go for a "Quacker" instead!
I have used the fab sketch from Sketch Saturday along with a Penny Black stamp which i think is called Duckling.
I have coloured straight onto Kraft card with my kohinor pencils, I really love the way they pop!!
I will be entering my card into the following challenges
Cupcake - layers
Craft us crazy - animals
It's gonna be sunny today wish it was my day off!!
Have a lovely day wherever you may be x

Pink and Girly!!

Hullo blog buddies!!
Yay I have finally managed to play today not without being interrupted of course!!
At least I have finally achieved a card and I did enjoy it as not had much time to myself of late so it was lovely just to sit and create.
I have used a LOTV stamp (so sweet) and I have given her lots of sparkle. I have even used an embossing folder, I have so many but always forget to use them maybe I should put them in a prominent place so I do not forget them.
I felt like going really girly today and pretty pretty, I'm liking the pink and green together I think it works well.
I will be entering my card into the following challenges
Lili of the Valley - Happy Birthday
Fab and Funky - spotty and dotty
I went to my first Zumba class last night - Oh My!! How much fun is that, it is absolutely crazy we laughed all the way through and sweated and wheezed!!!
The instructor was gorgeous and had a body to die for - i just looked like a pig in a stocking with ants in me pants!! waaagh!!!
Now I know what you mean Debbie !! Great Fun!! lol
No aches today but you can bet your life they will kick in tomorrow!!
Oh by the way Sandra ,I've packed the bags for the ladybirds and I'm blowing them back your way , one little terror was in the bed with me last nite!!!

A card For my Lovely Mum!

Hi de hi campers!!
what a beautiful day we are in for in the UK the sun is shining and the sky is blue!!!
I will be spending my day in the office but may just sun my little toes while eating my lunch me thinks.
Something a little different from me today a card with no stamped image - yeah really!!!
This is the card I made for my wonderful mum for Mother's Day and I decided not to use a stamp like I normally do and I wanted to try and use my fab flowers that had been gathering dust!!

Here is a wonky angle shot so you can see my lil flutterbys fluttering ! lol
I do like a bit of gingham it looks so clean and crisp and reminds me of a little dress I used to have as a child, in fact if I remember rightly I think I had one in pink as well!!
Will be back later to see if I can find some challenges it will fit into as I am sure I followed a sketch!
Pink gem challenge - fab sketch
Papertake Weekly - anything goes
Secret crafter - butterflies
creative inspirations - punches and dies
Have a wonderful day and don't forget your shades the sun is gonna shine!
