Hoppy Easter....

I do love this Magnolia image from last decided to get Tilda inked up again!! I am entering her into "Stampin' for the Weekend" and "Stamp with Fun"as they both have the theme of Easter! I am also entering this card into Roses on Paper as their challenge is Punch it - I have used a Martha Stewart punch along one of my edges!
Must confess I am also in love with these new MME papers! bx


I used the cute "vintage baby" (by Sugar Nellie) for this christening card which fits with the current theme of "Babies" at Crafty Creations Challenges!

I did have a bit of a hunt through my paper mountain to find some suitable baby boy papers...this collection by Making Memories rescued me!! The sentiment is by Penny Black.

Note to self: invest in some boy papers!! Great excuse to shop!! bx

My First Tent Card....

Isn't this "Tent Card" a cute change from the norm..? It's the challenge over at Just Magnolia and I fancied giving it a go! I just realised though, that in my haste, I haven't photographed the card from the side but it's definitely a tent card!! It was easy to make so I'm sure I'll have another go!!

I had some surprise mail recently.....
I received these fabulous goodies from my lovely friend Sharon....sorry it took me so long to post them Sharon......
....and "thank you" so much for being so kind and thoughtful....I can't wait to play with all my new toys....oh, I did dip into those yummmmmmy Lindt caramel's in that Sugar Nellie envelope.....just in case they wouldn't keep!! bx
