This is the card and box I made for my Gran, she still has all the other cards I made for her over the years so this will be added to the collection too !!!

Colour inspiried

Well, something a little different this week from me !! At C4E the challenge this week is a colour one. I happened to be looking at my beads and thinking of this challenge so I decided to make a necklace and earings than a card ! I'm sure it will wing its way to my friend soon !!! The beads are a semi precious stone, Russian Serpentine. Green with natural colourings and markings making them quite stunning, so with a bit of wire work and threading voila !!

Over at C4E this week our challenge is Mothersday ! Its not long now !! Well I used Tatty Teddy Spring Cd again for this challenge. I just love these papers and images !!! I also decided to get my Cricut out and dust it off !! Mmm I wish I hadn't bothered !! It took me 2 hours to get a correctly cut word "Mother" !

Anyway I did eventually succeed ........ I made a card and a box and a gift tag. I edged the lid of the box with a punch to give it a more interesting edge than just square. The flowers are from bridal confetti from the USa with added bling !! So all ready for Mothers day now !

Come join the fun we are sponsored this week by Stamping all day and the Digi garden, come check it out !

Digital Delights

Hello everyone !!! What a busy busy week ............. I took my little girl to the airport to go see her dad for a week in the USA and have been deep cleaning the kitchen and lounge !!! Inc sorting out furniture and stuff !!! Phew ............

This week at C4E the challenge is Digital Delights to include a digi element or use everything digi !! As you can see I chose to use a Tatty teddy image and papers from the new Springtime Cd !! Only the flowers and bling on this card are not digital. I thought I would go for a nice simple clean look for this. I glitterd up the flowers and the bow on the egg. Now who to send this card to ............... !!!

Have a great weekend I have a busy one ahead, Sunday dinner for my partners children !! Will be great fun we number 11 of us when we are all together !!
