Hi, I hope you are safe and well, where ever you are and not too snowy..ours turned to slush in a matter of 24 hours and then vanished..oh well once in 18 years isn’t too bad I suppose !!!

I have had a bash at the above challenge which can be found here..


here is my card which I will be giving to one of  my yummy mummy friends on Saturday..as you can see she has turned 40 and the card will contain a collection from the other yummy mummy friends..


I have fallen head over heels in love with The greetings farm Anya and Ian and got this image is a download which worked out at £2.10 and was with me instantly.  The only problem I had with this image is that my printer ink didn’t like the sansador fluid and I had to be SOOOOO careful otherwise it turned into a big black mess ( as my previous three attempts are testiment to !)

Here is the Recipe…

Image: Digital Download from The Greetings Fasm

Cardstock : Basic Grey – Oh Baby Girl

Ribbon, FlatBacked Pearls, Doodlebug Buttons

Coloured in with Prisma Colours

Close up…


and here is a side profile so you can seee dimensions of the card…I hope she likes it !!

Well as I have been housebound again here today by the snow ( it has just started to sleet so I reckon it will be gone in no time) I decided to make the most of the time I had ” free” and go for it on the cardmaking !

I have had a bash at the above cvhallenge which can be found here

http://sketchsaturday.blogspot.com/2009/01/sketch-36-31st-january-sponsored-by.html and


and as it is sponsored by Pollycraft I thought I would have a nosey around her blog and her stamps…I love them. Anyway she had a free upload showing on her blog so I thought I would give the challenge a go with one of her stamps – even if it was free ( Thanks I really appreciate it)

Here is my card…


I have decoupaged the wings and tail as I think it gives the image a bit of depth, I have to be honest I love it, those birds are so cute…


The recipe…

Cardstock : Basic Grey Euphoria

Ribbon from Stash

Swarovski Crystals and a coloured in using Prisma Colours with a touch of glitter Gelly Roll on the wings..
