I have my regular inspirational card to share to day for My Mum's Craft Shop, and she's a Wee cutie!!

The topper is from the Hobby House topper set called "Rosetta", there are a few different images on there, already coloured up for a super fast last minute card, like mine!!haha!
Those delish papers are from MyMind's Eye,  Record it, "Pretty Things", i really must get some more of those pads before they all sell out. 
I have distressed them a little more, and tucked a doily in there too!
The flowers are from a Marianne die that I have had for sooo long, and I finally got to use them today! yay!
 they took a little time, but using your paper scraps you will always have a perfect match. I added stickles to them, and dropped a few AB seed beads in the centre...

My Favourite Things - My Mum's Craft Shop Inspiration

Goood morning everybody!!
So happy you could join me today!
 I have an inspirational card for my Tuesday post over at My Mum's Craft Shop ... and the theme is MY Favourite Things 
Now, you may have guessed but My Favourite Things is really one of my favourite things . I (heart) them!!!! 
My make is pretty CAS, but a quick make, and with all MFT products , the finish is always superb!!! 

The lush glittery papers are from Forever Friends "New Arrival" , Then I die cut the bib from the Die-namics "Baby Bib" , adding a button for detail. Then I used the Die-namics "Bright lights Alphabet" to cut the baby wording. 

 the card blank itself is a 5x5 , and the dimensions of the bib are the perfect size.... 
This would look super in pink, blue or even white too!!
 Check out which of the Die-namics range the rest of the DT go with for their make this week over at MMCS...

Spectrum Noir Challenge - Nature/Floral

Hey guess... happy hump day!!
I am working this afternoon, boooo! so I will make this a quick post.
The new challenge is up over at Spectrum Noir on FB... and the theme is "Floral/Nature"....
Now, those who know me know I have a love for all things cute and quirky.. and I posses very few sensible stamps ..haha.... but I had this fabulous image from Sheena Douglass ... I used some vintage papers.... a lot of distress inks... and a touch of glitter.... 
this is a rather grungy messy make from me, which is unusual I know, because I am a clean crafter..hehe

So, I used the vintage papers fro Michele Roos... you can see them all in her Etsy shop.... and the butterfly comes from A Little Bit Sketchy "Butterfly Effect" as does the sentiment.

 I spritzed it all with walnut ink, and finished with a touch of gold glitter....
please go find out the details for the challenge here.... there is a prize of £30/$30 to be won!!! 
I just need to enter this in...

Creative Blog Hop

I was asked by the lovely Fiona if I'd like to join in with the Creative Bloggers Hop.  It's a continuous hop every Monday with a host of inspirational bloggers taking part every week.  

So onto the questions.

1. What am I working on?
 I have a few Dt makes to finish up today.. also an anniversary card for my hubby for Wednesday

2.How does my work differ from others in my genre?

I am not sure really, I know I always like to include a coloured image , I LOVE my Spectrums

3. Why do I write/create what I do?

I love to create for a little "me" time, and to help unwind... and I have the added bonus of never having to buy a shop bought card! 

4. How does your writing/creative process work?

I always choose my theme, find an image to suit, and then paper to go with the style of that image. For example, a cute girly modern image would have pretty girly papers, maybe an older style image would go better with vintage papers and so on.... Then I would make my card base up, and colour my image using the colours from those papers.... 

Now onto the 3 Wonderful Bloggers I picked as nominees for next week.


Erin is one of my blogging/facebook  friends. She is such a funny genuine person. She has a great take on life. ...AAAAnd she can drive a tractor with a trailer!! impressive!!!! 
I know her work keeps her busy, as well as being involved with lots of DT's, but when she gets time to blog them her cards are always fabulous!!


Claire is another blogging friend, we have been on the CC DT together.  Claire makes fabulous cards, and always has innovative ideas... a different style card fold, or she always finds a way to use products, that make me ask "Why didn't I think of that"?? 
Plus she is a lovely bubbly person!


Taylor is the lovely lady who helps look after the Dts over at CC, we all keep her very busy!!!! I guess that could be why her blog is called "The Quiet Moments". she always manages to create such unique and stylish cards on her blog ( I wish I could think outside the box sometimes, like she does)  She is soooo kind and helpful .

So that's my contribution to the Creative Blog Hop and it's now down to these ladies next week! 

Thanks for stopping by.
