With Easter just around the corner....this afternoon Kiddlywink1 (K1) created these lovely little gift cards (and bonus egg) to give to her teachers at school:) I've decided that her creations are just fab and plan to make a few of my own too!!
Hellooooooo! Here is the lastest @ Sandybeaches... todays challenge using the Mercy Tuesday sketch... with SU Close to Cocoa paper as the main card colour the pinks added 'cuteness' and the stamps in SU Chocolate Chip added a bit of depth...all in all....a fun and 'happy' birthday card was created:)

After racing to the shops with K1 this afternoon, I headed over to D's to create this week's Sunday Sketch:) Tis fun to create with someone!! After putting together my colours the tricky bit was how to give it that special touch..I spent a little time trying different papers, colours and brads. When I got home (while cooking dinner) I decided to swap the original yellow brads with the 'chocolatey' star brads - and on being pleased with myself..took the photo ready to post on my blog (meanwhile nearly burning the apples for bbq pork chops and apple sauce...heee..heee) love that ability to multi task!!! Mmmm..what next?!

Here is my first 'Crazy for Challenges' creation! After the exciting, crafty week I've had - I think that I have certainly gone a little crazy for challenges:) This is my third card this afternoon:) hee hee! The sketch for this challenge was neat and simple - it certainly suited a cheerful 'get well soon' card. At first I thought it may turn out a little too pink..but all in all I'm pleased with how it all came together! Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!
Here is another card I've whipped up today using this weeks Saturday Sketch from 'Our Creative Corner'! The SU Not Quite Navy served as a 'spacey' backdrop for my 'congratulations' card. Oh what a blast I'm having squeezing as much stamping fun in as possible in the 'spare' moments of my day:)
Hello there! Hope your weekend has been a goodie...and you've managed to squeeze a little bit of crafty fun into it! (I have...hee..hee!) Here is my first Stamp Something Challenge - 'Doodle Something'...I had fun putting together this cute birthday card - the fish were my starting point and then it all came together from there!

Here is my lastest creation of the week - I have just done my first 'Friday Sketchers' Challenge! Yippeeeee!! I decided to make a masculine card as I seem to have been all flowers and butterflies this week:) With SU Not Quite Navy card as my starting point...it all just seem to come together! Mmm...what shall I create next?! Hope your weekend is sailing along smoothly:)

Hi! Wow what a week!! Here is my creation (with an Easter twist) for Cute Card Thursday. I thought that the Sidestep card I discovered at a Stampin Up! Technique class (thanks Janice!) would be a perfect card to use for this 'Dimensions' challenge. Hope you like it! Anyway...I'd better get hopping and make some more, as Easter is only a week away!

Hi! Here is my creative touch to Sweet Sketch Wednesday:) I've put a ladybug under the magnifying glass (aka SU Sweet Treat Cup - my little light bulb moment that I had over the weekend..scroll to my first posts to see the dragonfly and butterfly images under the magnifying glass too)...a bit of Cuttlebug embossing to Old Olive paper, a few brads and a little rearranging to create my first Sweet Sketch Wednesday creation! Oh what a crafty week I've had:)

Here's a little something else that I whipped up this evening...a little handmade birthday gift for one of K1's friend's sisters (confused?!?! but anyway...a cute little notebook and pen). There are those flowers and butterflies again! May need to put them away for a day or so! All in all - SU ribbon, stamps, card, ink and the handy 'Bind-it-All' by Zutter and hey presto here it is:)
Hello there! Just sharing my first 'Project Tuesday' creation - the Flower Pot Card:) I had fun creating then shifting the various flowers and butterflies around until they found their 'happy' position on the card! The
SU Butterfly and Scallop Edge punches are my favourite at the moment (think they've been on nearly each card lately?!) and so too have those SU Blooms Die Cuts! Tis my first Flower Pot creation...note to self...could be a goodie for Easter or Mother's Day pressies!

Well...here's our first attempt at a Mojo Monday challenge!! It is amazing how differently we all create! Kiddlywink1 (K1) came home from school to ask 'what was this week's Mojo Monday sketch' - and before I could even had a chance to grab the craft seat she was busy creating! K1 has used a combination of pink, black & white, SU papers and punches...a splash of ribbon and brads...abracadabra...here it is! Wackadoo!! So of course (not to be outdone) I grabbed a chance after dinner to create one of my own! Keeping on our pink, black & white theme - I added butterflies and a hint of blue and grey to mine and...drumroll...had my first attempt at Mojo Monday! We are having loads of fun!! Stay tuned for more exciting, crafty adventures!

Well here is this evenings craft venture - I've had a go at my first 'Curtain Call' creation! This challenge involved using red, yellow, pink, white and black to create a card. The main flower came from the SU Die Cuts Blooms set (lucky I had the set as I was struggling for the red element as my normal stash consists of Ruby Red). Cuttlebug to the rescue for the embossing..some extra bits and pieces...and before I knew it...here it is! Fun, Fun, Fun! Mmmm...what next!?

Wahoooo!! I have just done my first Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge - being new to this whole blog thing I'm not 100% sure how to get it linked..will work on the technical side a little later...but here is the finished product! Yippee!! Yahooeee!! What a great way to end the weekend! Ciao for now.
I have had the SU Sweet Treat Cups and large circle punch sitting on my craft shelf for quite a while now...so after being at a SU Technique Class this week...I have had a go this evening at creating something a little different! I haven't (as yet) got any stamps to go with the Sweet Treat Cups, so I have improvised and cut out magnifying glasses! Hope you like them!
