A Tulip Bunny

Good Monday morning to you! A quick post for you today, I have lots to get done before I leave for Devon tomorrow.
Here is my card for 'Little Claire Likes' today.  I have used the gorgeous 'Tulip Bunny' stamp set and have teamed it up with some gorgeous DCWV papers and 'bunny' ribbon, all of which can be brought HERE on the website.
I am busy packing for Westpoint Crafting 4 Crafter's show in Exeter, this week. I will be working with Ali and Iain from Ali-Craft and the lovely Barbara.  Ali, Barbara and I will be doing an all-day workshop on Wednesday in Clyst St. Mary and then workshops at the show each day.

A Baby Tag

Good morning, hope your having a great Friday?
Here is a little tag I have made for the Friday project post over at Little Claire's.  I have given a list of products and instructions on the blog HERE.
I have used a great little set designed for baby cards and projects, called 'Babies are such a nice way to start people'.  I just love the little teddy, it looks great in kraft card!
Am a happy lady today, my hubs has been away for two weeks and I finally have him home, jetlagged but home and safe from the States, so am looking forward to a family weekend.
Whatever you do, have a good weekend!

Hearts & Flowers Stepper Card

Morning, hope your Monday is going well?
Am still hobbling about after bruising my ankle by tripping over my cat, CoCo on our stairs, ooo it did hurt! Poor puss was frightened half to death.  She has made a full recovery, my ankle not so good! Lots of rest and crafting should help.
Anyway, here is my card from today's, 'Little Claire Likes' project and I have made a stepper card using the gorgeous 'Heart's & Flowers' set that is at a special price on the website HERE for £6.50, for a limited time.
They also have some wonderful new paper packs from DCWV, omg they are so lush! I really didn't want to use them, just stroke them!  Also the birds and birdhouse dies can be found HERE.  The butterfly die is mine, but you can find everything else I have used on the website.
Have a wonderful day, am off to grab a large coffee, rest my foot and lock myself in the craft room.
Take care,

Up, Up and Away!

Good afternoon,
Here are two cards made using the gorgeous new 'Balloon' stamp launched today over at Little Claire.
The first of which has been made using inkpads and a couple of stencils.  These new images are great for Zentangalist's too!
I have inked around the edge of the card, to tie the images in and have kept the matts plain.
Secondly, I have used some gorgeous papers from a 'Man Made' paper pad, which the images fit perfectly with the balloons.  I have decoupaged the images and added some cloud die-cuts and a sentiment.

Do pop on over to the blog, to see the other Design Team's creations.
Back tomorrow with some cards using another new stamp.
Thanks for stopping by,

A Pink Teddy

Good morning, am feeling a bit poo today. This horrible virus that has been going round in our house, still hasn't left yet.  Have tried everything to shift it, so am giving in today and going back to bed shortly.  Have lots of dvd's that I got for Christmas to watch, so am looking forward to curling up with Molly & CoCo and finally watching them.
First, am sharing another quick little card that I have made using the gorgeous 'Daisy Bear' which is new from Little Claire.  She is such a sweetie and have added some daisies similar to the one she is holding on the image.  Some lush lace and a fabric brad finish it off.
Have a lovely day, thank you for any comments left, I really appreciate them all.
