New stamps to play with!!!

I have been fancying this "Daisy" stamp from Sugar Nellie for quite a while and this week I treated myself and bought it , among other things...I have also used basic grey papers and basic grey butterfly stamp in the blue card...in the green card I have used papermania papers....I adore the image in this stamp, very versatile and so cute....


This is my entry for the april card swap on the cb forum, sparkly and magical was this months theme...I think I got it right...

I made this for a friends birthday, a bit on the late side again!!!... I hope she forgives me...

I treated myself this week to some Basic Grey papers - Marrakech and Basic Grey Butterfly stamps...the colours on these papers are just gorgeous and the stamps are very clear and pretty..



Some of my Easter Atc's to send to some friends on the cb forum, I used paper from Papermania and my favourite Sarah kay stamp..

Busy,busy!!!

I haven't been on the computor for at least a week, firstly we had a wedding to go to which lasted two days,and of course the kids are on holiday so we have been out and about, I eventually managed to get some crafting done and hopefully will get some more done later....but I must get my peas in and the rest of my potatos....
Screech the new barn owl is settling in rather well and if the weather is nice tomorrow I will get the camera out so you can see him...Today I just happened to be passing hobbycraft and of course I thought it would be rude not to go in...lol...just bought a few bits and pieces which I will have a play with later..
Thanks for listening to my inane drivel, now on with the makes..
This is my entry for the bookmark swap on the cb forum, I think the theme was flowers, I hope it was because that is what I did..lol...I used a Whiff of Joy stamp and the papers are blue papermania...
This is my second fat page effort, the first one is below....the theme for this months was clothing/dressmaking.....I used papermania pink paper, Waiting Tilda,her handbag and various stickers....i am quite pleased with it...

This is a birthday card I made for a friend....actually its more of an apology card as I forgot her birthday...hope she likes it and forgives me for forgetting.....I used the sugared basice grey papers and some Tilda stamps...

A couple of Tilda atcs, these I made for some friends on the cb forum....I hope they will like them..



This is my entry for the fat page swap over on crafts beautiful...I have never made one before but it is like making an atc but bigger, 4" by 4"....a small gap must be left on the left hand side to make holes in....when you have swapped a few,you can make a fat book...I have used the basic grey sugared papers and my new sarah Kay stamp which I love....

New barn Owl!!!!

No Crafting today....I must do some tomorrow, I have a wedding on Thursday and still haven't made the card....lol...Instead of crafting today, the sun was out and it was so nice out,mum,Becky and I went for a walk around Bryngarw Park....its a beautiful place, lovely gardens and a grande old house, but my favourite is the Japanese garden with the bridge over the pond, the little houses and all the gorgeous plants...really fab day...
But the big news is we have a new member of the family....he arrived yesterday,he is a bit shy but give him a couple of days and he will be settled in...he is a gorgeous barn owl, very white with a touch of tan around his head and on his wings....Rebecca has named him Screech because he makes a noise like escaping gas....a sort of prolonged hisss....anyway as soon as he is settled in I will take some photos of him so you can all see....
