Silhouette Owl Tree Card

Good morning, hoping all you Mum's were spoilt rotten yesterday? I certainly was!  My girls brought me Pandora charms, cushions, dvd's, perfume, flowers and chocolates.  I even got taken out for lunch and had no housework to do all day, it was fabulous, I am feeling very spoilt and very loved lol!
Back to reality today, and am really sad as I have lost one of my beloved little guinea pigs, Oscar.  He was an older pig that I had adopted from my lovely rescue locally.  I was so glad to give such a loving piggy a second chance, I am really going to miss him our cuddles and his chatter.
On a lighter note, here is my little card for the Little Claire Likes weekly project over at Little Claire.  I have used the gorgeous 'Silhouette Owl Tree' stamp that is on special offer this week at £3.99.  I have also used a great stencil called 'Garden Flora'.  You can go treat yourself to this gorgeous little stamp HERE.
Have lots of work to get done.  Thanks for stopping by today.

Ali-Craft Blog Challenge # 10 - 'Spring'

Good morning, and Happy Saturday to you!
Have just got in from some fun girly time with Jess & Georgia. Some retail therapy, coffee and new iron hunting was on the agenda.  My iron decided to blow up this morning, frightened the life out of me when it went pop!
Today, Ali-Craft are launching a brand new challenge on the blog.  The Design Team want to see cards with a 'Spring' feel.  Lots of lovely colours with anything that encapsulates Spring.  There is a £10 voucher to spend on-line, up for grabs.  You can pop over to the blog HERE to see the other teamie's cards and lots of inspiration.
My card has been made using some gorgeous little 'Lyndsey Mason' stamps, lots of ink and a great mask from Creative Expressions.  A totally different card from me, which is great.  I love thinking out of my box lol!
I took my photo early this morning when the sun was shining in my conservatory, it makes the card look quite eerie!
Have a fabby Saturday, thanks for dropping by!

Swirly Birds Wedding Mini-Album

Happy Friday to you!
It is my turn to share a blog project, over on the Little Claire blog today.  I have made a little wedding mini-album using the gorgeous stamp set 'Swirly Birds'.
I have coloured my images in with various colours of 'Wink of Stella' glitter pens, and hope my photos do the sparkle justice!
Above is the front of the album.  I have added the heart image from the set to the glorious Tim Holtz 'Rosette' die.
Here is the first image, such a lovely stamp set for wedding invites and cards, I just love it!

The bird cage image, used below, has to be my favourite of the set

Here is the inside of my album
I have used lots of dotty and check paper from the Little Claire website HERE  The 'Wink of Stella' pen colours used were 'Clear', 'Gold', 'Green' & 'Pink'.  I finished by inking around the cream card using a 'Spun Sugar' inkpad.
Most of the products used, can be purchased from Little Claire, via the link above.
Hope you likey?
Have a lovely weekend,
