Birthday balloons

I'm posting this on a Monday morning, so that means it must be a holiday for me - whoo-hoo!  I have made this card using the backing papers from the Crafter's Companion Swalk CD rom and a Bebunni topper, which I cut down as it was way too big.

The pinwheel is an SU die, and the tags are a die'sire die from CC.  I started with this card using inspiration from my Pinterest board, and this was a Sweet Sunday sketch.  Thanks for looking. Lynn x

Butterfly challenge and Snippets

Hello there, my card today will be entered into the new Butterfly Challenge that Mrs. A has started, so please join in if you can. She wants to see at least one flower and one butterfly on your cards - settling us in nice and gently.
This card uses up snippets of BeBunni design papers, and coredinations cardstock.  The white panel was run through a Desire 'happy birthday' embossing folder, and an SU butterfly diecut.  I will enter the Snippets Playground with this one too. Thanks for stopping by. Lynn x

Edit:  Thought I would try the design with an added pinwheel - what do you think?
photo is better too, in the daylight.  Thanks for looking, and for the lovely comments.

Cheesecake Party (Sketch n Stash challenge 132)

Happy Monday!  Today my card uses the Sketch n Stash current sketch, and a pre-loved Penny Black stamp.
Here's the sketch, which I rotated.
Coloured in with Spectrum Noir pens, and the ribbon I purchased today from Lidl.  A lovely quality satin ribbon, and 5m for 99p - bargain.  Might show you the yellow spotty ribbon tomorrow. Lynn x

Lola Rose - Big Birthday (FMS 122 and Snippets 111)

Just finished watching 'Call the Midwife' - I cried!  I'll cry with anyone, totally hopeless, lol.
On to today's card.

I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches:
The image is Lola Rose, (Pink Petticoat - but I'm not sure that it is still available).  Papers are Lily Bimble, freebie from Quick Cards Made Easy mag some time ago, and the snippets are the pink bazzil cardstock, and the tags made with the SU jewellery tag.  Coloured in with Spectrum Noir pens. The sentiments were from a blog, some time ago, and I cannot give credit as I did not put the name of the blog on the file, sorry.
Well, off to join the challenges now - I think the pals in the Snippets Playground will need a sugar rush with all the building for the ark!  The puddles must be so deep that the water has gone over the top of Parsnip's wellies! Lynn x

flying stars

What a dreary, cold Thursday - but never mind, the weekend is just around the corner, and with a bit of luck it could be dry.  I hope everyone has stayed safe.
My card today uses a pre-loved Penny Black stamp called flying stars.
I added a touch of colour to pull in the surrounding backing papers, nd the tag die is a Clearly Besotted one.
Thanks for looking, and see you again soon. Lynn x

Valentine - Sketch 295 (by Cathy)

I came across the image of the dogs in the Crafter's Companion Winter magazine, and then this happened:

I had not planned to turn it into a valentine card, but it just evolved when I looked at the Sketch Saturday sketch.  The images are from the free CD (Frou Frou papers).  The backing papers  are Wild Rose Studio 'Wedding Belles'.  I typed in the 'I wuff you' in Publisher, and copied the image into there to position the sentiment.  The embellishments and banners are also from the CD.  The valentines sentiments are from Clearly Besotted.  Thanks for looking.

Seize the sketch 12

I am just in time to enter my card into the current Seize the Sketch challenge.
I have used papers and diecuts from a Kaisercraft Sweet Pea collection which I had free with Quick Cards Magazine.  I inked up the paper a little with distress ink (barn door) and edged the heart in the same colour. Greeting is from Stampin Up.  No matter how hard I tried, I could not get rid of the 'spotlight', sorry. Thanks for looking. Lynn x
