Pixies Snippet Playground #173

At last, today I have a decent internet connection!  Here is a card I made earlier -

This card uses up my red cardstock and candy dots.  The chevron paper is a crafter's companion download, and the rest of the cardstock is SU basics.  The main sentiment on the medallion is from Digistamp Boutique *here* (large birthday sentiments), and the other text is computer generated using Tahoma and Bradley Hand.  I'm off to link up at the playground now.  See you soon.  Lynn x

Butterfly challenge + Musical notes (28)

I am not so late this week for Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge, but I did have to put my thinking cap on.
I don't have any appropriate stamps, but looking through my cardstock I found a smidge of musical note DSP which I had from Stampin' Up quite a while ago.  So here is the result -
 Not much music going on here, but I hope it's enough for Mrs. A's approval :-).  I am off now to link up and take a look and comment on some of the lovely creations.  See you soon.

Freshly Made Sketches 181

The Freshly Made Sketches sketch was a good one to play around with:
and I was really inspired by Cindy Lovell.s card, which replaced the horizontal strip with a sentiment:

so here is my card taken from this beautiful creation:
The sentiment is from Digistamp Boutique, and is one of a few on the sheet of 'large sentiments' which you can find here. The stars are from a stamp set by Clearly Besotted.  The backing paper is from Pink Petticoat, the new colours collection.  Thanks for looking.   Lynn x

Butterfly Challenge - in a corner (no.27)

Hi there, dashing in with a last minute card for Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge.  Although I say dashing, this card was a labour of love with the amount of smudges I had to cover up *smiles*.
I bet you are looking really close now, aren't you - come on - own up! (snigger).  This used the Butterfly Basics stamp set and dies from SU, a Marianne die for the tag, and the little bees were from the Collage Curios.  The colours are Baked Brown Sugar and Pumpkin Pie.  As the tags were snippets, I shall run into the Snippets Playground and say hello to Di.  See you soon.

Meet LEO

Hello everyone, I do hope that you  enjoyed your Easter weekend.  I have not blogged in a while, and the reason for this?  I have been very busy introducing my new best friend to the household.  Please meet Leo -

He is a 9 month old King Charles Cavalier and he is extremely mischievous!  

I will be back soon to show some cards I have made. Enjoy your Bank Holiday Monday.  A bit misty here, but the sun is just trying to  break through.
