Crafty Creations Challenge #112 - Bunnies

I've just made a card for a friend using my LOTV Balloon Bunny when I came across Crafty Creations Challenge Blog with the theme bunnies. Perfect as I can now enter this card into the challenge. I've used a Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder on the background paper, the punched border is a Martha Stewart punch, and the sentiment is also LOTV. I've cut out an extra balloon and added 3d foam pads onto it.

LOTV Challenge 89 - Punch It!

Well the new addition to the family has arrived. Johns neice gave birth to a little girl - Jessica Scarlet on Tuesday weighing 7lbs. Can't wait to go see her. I've been itching to make a card for them but because they didn't want to know the sex of the baby I've had to wait. I've used Baby Girl for the image. The papers are Nanas Nursery. The ribbon actually says Its a Girl but you can't actually see it. The challenge this week was punch it so I've punched my flowers and leaves, and also punched out the sentiment and used a nestie on the little girl image. I'm a bit pleased with my bow. I might at long last be getting the hang of my bow easy (possibly lol!)

LOTV Challenge 88 - Sketch by Bev

A brilliant sketch has been provided by the talented Bev Rochester for this weeks LOTV challenge. For my card I've used Prima papers called Botantical collection and one of my recently purchased LOTV stamps called "Love Grows". I think this is such a cute stamp. I've added Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. I've decided I definitely need to invest in some more flowers as I just don't have a varied selection of them yet. This card is an anniversary card for my hubby. We celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary next month. How time flies

Spring has Sprung

I love this time of year when spring is trying to cheer us up with gardens actually having some colour in them and the daffodils out. My favourite part of spring is the birth of all the little lambs, they are just so adorable. I've used a Whiff of Joy stamp for this card and I think it is so appropriate for this time of year with her holding her little lamb and the daffodils around her. I've used Papermania Summer Bloom papers and a Lily of the Valley sentiment stamp (I am so loving these sentiments). I'm entering this card into 2 challenges Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 154 - Signs of Spring and Stampin' for the Weekend - Challenge #5 - Springtime.
