MSC Challenge 155 USA Mothers Day

Well it's that time again for another challenge over at . This time my good friend Sandy has chosen the theme of Mothers Day as it is so soon over in the US. We have had ours already so she has also included a side note of a Girly Card as some people may no longer have their Mother with them and there is always a good friend you can post to.

Here is my card, it is a 6x6 and today I have used a cute Magnolia image on there. I chose to give her yellow leggings to match the daffodil which I also picked up in the doily, lace and glitter strip down the left side. That strip of pink flower paper is the last I have and I have hung on to it for ages. The base paper believe it or not is pink too even though it looks a bit coral in this photo! I embossed that first. I added liquid pearl dots in the corners and a few pearls too. The sentiment I printed out as my stamp was too large for the circle.

Now its your turn to join in with us, but first check out the girls and leave a little love.

VLV April #2 sketch

I decided to join in again over at . I needed a card for someone I know going in to hospital for a fairly big operation and wanted to let her know she'd be missed whilst recovering.

The card is a 6x6 and I have used a Webster's pages paper along with Kaisercraft plain cardstock. I added Verve sequins and the sentiment too.

Thanks for stopping by today.   Sue

Viva La Verve #1

Today I decided to enter in to on their April sketch #1.
I really liked the sketch and thought I could do something with it. I have made a small A5 card using papers from my stash along with a couple of Verve dies and a sentiment. The sequins are Verve too in blue but they are picking up the colours from around them.
I will put the card in my box ready for when it is needed. Thanks for stopping by today.

Challenge 154 National Humor Month.

Hi There,
It's time again for a new challenge over at . Sarah has asked us to use the theme of Humor in our cards today. You will see when you visit the site some cracking styles on show.

Here is my take, it uses a Saturated Canary image of a very slim young lady carrying her lunch. I have been doing Slimming World lately and you just can't believe how much food you can eat! Those who know about Slimming World will know you have to keep in check your "syn's" per day. You can have a home made burger with salad on a wholemeal bap and it would cost you 0 syn's you just can't loose!! well you will loose weight.

The Card is a 6x6 and I took the white dot paper and die cut a few stars out of it, then I hand stitched it to a denim paper which I ruffed the edges of that went on to the card base using foam pads. The image I coloured using Promarkers and matted that on to a denim oval. I used a SB die to make the flowers. The sentiment I printed off the PC.

Now it's your turn to join in the fun and show us your funny side.

Easter Theme challenge 153

Hi again,
This time around it is my turn to choose our theme to play along to over at and I have chossen Easter. Now I know it is simillar to one a few weeks ago but we never know what each one will choose but for this challenge I'd like you to add either a cross, a bunny rabbit (or two)  eggs or a chicken.

This is my card, I wanted it to be nice and bright which I think it is. I chose this cute image to colour in usin the colours I had choseen in my papers. I did lots of layers on this card using 5 different papers along with 6 different dies, Oh what fun I had. I love that Verve hole die at the top along with the little flower die too. Ribbon is from my stash and I printed the sentiment out from my PC.

Please join in with us on this challenge, I feel it will be fun.

St Patrick's Day

Design team sister Glenda has come up with the theme St Patrick's Day for us to play along to this time around over at So of course your card or project must have at least one of the following on it. A pot of gold, a leprechaun or a 4 leaf clover. Now thats not too hard is it!

Here is what I have come up with. It is a sweet treat box. My good friend Sandy sent me in the post some little boxes so I set about making the wrap around out of some glittery paper I had. I cut out shapes on all 4 sides so you could peek the "gold" at the end of the rainbow lol. I had to hand cut the clovers as I had none and attached them to the tab top, I also added the Good Luck sentiment too.

Hope you have fun with this challenge.

Welcome Spring. Challenge 151

Hello There,
This time around over at it is design team sister Peachy's turn to choose the theme we all play along to. This time it is Welcome Spring. Your card or project must have a spring theme to it.

Here is mine, it's a 5x7 tent fold card this time around.

On this card I used lots of scraps I had in my box which were too good to throw out. The first went down flat and then I embossed the plaid with a ditsy flower and the arrow paper with a hounds tooth folder. Spellbinders have been used also. I coloured in my image using Promarker pens and fussy cut her out. I thought the twine was a good addition to pull it all together. The cute flowers and sprightly sprigs are a favourite of mine at the moment.

Now its your turn to join in with this fun challenge.
