Marshmallow / Daisy

Hi all,
My little challenge today was to use spotty paper!!
This challenge was alot easier then my last one, I just love spotty paper!!. The paper is from Funky hands papercraft factory, their brand new CDRom that came out in January, and it's fab!. I have quite a few of their CDRoms, sooo very easy to use and have great colour combo's, so not alot of thinking when putting the papers together.
I also used Daisy and Dandelion stamps for my little challenge, great images to colour in and so cute and adorable, stamps coloured in with my beloved Promarkers ( what would I do without them!! ).
I hope you like my little works of art today, please feel free to leave a little comment, it's lovely to hear from you all, I really appreciate them!!
Take care and watch this space for more challenges :o)
Bye bye for now xxx

Hi all,
My little personal challenge today was to use black and white paper!!, not as easy as it sounds.
When trying to think of a design, everything was looking quite dark (obvious, I know!!), but I wanted to use these particular stamps with a little bit of spring thrown in.
So these are the cards I made, what do you think??. I am very pleased with Rian image, the stamp is so cute and I love the colour combo on it, and the little girl with the umbrella is lovely too. The one I had issues with was "Dressed up", but I think it turned out well in the end.
Hope you like my new gadget - my little slide show - I think it's fab!!

Spring is back / How sweet you are

Elodie in the garden / How sweet you are

Spring is back - Sarah Kay

How sweet you are - Sarah Kay

Elodie in the garden - Sarah Kay
My challenge today was to use free papers we receive in craft magazines!!
How many of us look at the free papers and never use them?? , well I do!!
I receive many mags thoughout the month, far to many to mention, but today I did receive my new copy of Quick cards made easy and guess what?, free papers!!
That gave me a challenge, and inspiration to use them, with these new Sarah Kay stamps that arrived today too.
How sweet you are - free papers!, Ribbon from stash, pearls from stash, flowers from flora Doodles, faux stitching, spiced marmalade distress ink and nesties.
Elodie in the garden - free papers from QCME, ribbon from stash, flowers stamped from a creative expressions stamp plate, card candy, broken glass distress ink and nesties.
Spring is back - free papers from QCME, ribbon from mag, flowers from creative expressions stamp plate, broken glass distress ink and nesties.
All stamps were coloured in with Promarkers.
I think I done quite well with the papers, and I have many more to use!!. I normally print most of my papers from CDroms, which I love especially Funky Hands, Polka Doodles, Joanna Sheen to name a few, but ink seems to have gone in price, as I found out today!! ( 2 cartridges=£35!!).
Try the challenge yourself, you might find you save a few pennies to buy other goodie!!
Take care :o)
Bye bye for now x

My Craft room

I thought I share with you my great craft room my lovely husband made for me last year.

Its at the bottom of my garden near the fish pond, it's lovely when the weather is warm, the door open and you can hear the water flowing - very heavenly (except when you need to go to the loo!!)

As you can see its quite tidy at the mo - but you should see it on a bad day!! (at least it's out of the house so I can leave it messy).
