Silhouette Garden Stand Card

Hello, have been a bad blogger again.  Got back from a fun week at the NEC, then pulled a muscle in my back whilst gardening. Have been off work with a bad back, so resting it as much as I can. Have managed to do a little crafting whilst catching up with all of my Sky+ programmes, including the wonderful Poldark!
Anyway, here is my project card for Little Claire using their offer stamp of the week, 'Silhouette Garden'.  Its a lovely set which comes complete with two images and lots of sentiments.  It is on offer until Thursday at £4.50 (usually £5.50).
Ok off to feed the family, have a great evening!

Little Claire Likes - Silhouette Wedding Card

Good morning,
Just a quick post today to share my project card for the 'Little Claire Likes' project over on the Little Claire blog today.
I have made a card using the lovely 'Silhouette Wedding' stamp set, which is on special offer until Thursday at the great price of £4.50.
Here is my card :
I had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday.  My girls took me out for a special breakfast, we then had a cream tea in the afternoon and Jess cooked me a three course dinner.  I had lots of wonderful pressies, one of which was a bird bath, something I have wanted for years.  I just have to decide where it will live in the garden.  I am a very lucky mum to have such three wonderful, generous and gorgeous daughters.
Am busy getting bits and pieces finished and ready today.  Am off to the NEC to work this week, so have lots to do and also pack. Large coffee is needed first me thinks!
Have a lovely day, thanks for stopping by.

March Flower Cards

Good evening,

I am sharing two cards made using the gorgeous new club stamp set from Little Claire,

'March Flowers'

Both really quick and easy but involving lots of colouring using Promarkers, but oh my, I love these images!

I have added some 'Stickles' glitter glue to the centre of the larger flowers on my second card.

You can pop on over to the main website HERE to treat yourself to the club set if your not already a member.

Thanks for stopping by my blog this evening.
