Kitty Bee Spotlight

Happy Wednesday everyone! 

I love the Spotlight part of being on our Kitty Bee Design Team, it's also the most difficult - it takes me ages to choose which image to use as there are so many cute images! 

I made this card for one of my lovely friends as up until this afternoon was due to be going into hospital at the weekend.  Now her op has been postponed so I'll have to put it away for a little while.  I chose this cute little ladybug image for my card - I think he is perfect to make her feel better. 

I love this dotty paper too - it's perfect with the image, it's actually out of a very floral Prima paper pack.  You can't really tell on this image but the wings are all lovely and sparkly!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Valentines Day.  Tomorrow we're taking our children to stay with their Grandparents for half term.  Woop Woop a week off for me!

Today I'm sharing my Stampin' For The Weekend card and our theme for this fortnight is Flower Power.

Our sponsor for this challenge is

  I made this card for my lovely friend Sheena for her birthday.

I've used some lovely Prima Papers and a cute image by Tiddly Inks.

I'll be back to enter some challenges later.

I do hope you can join us for our challenge- it nice and easy, we just want to see flowers on your creation somewhere either on the paper, the image or as an embellishment.

Thanks for looking!

Aloha Friday Challenge - Love / Valentines!


After being all on time last week - I'm back to my usual service of posting a day late.

I'm feeling quite exited today as I'm going to the Creative Stitch and Hobby Craft event in Manchester at home.  Woop Woop!!! I'm hoping to pick up some crafty bargains and lots of "essentials"!

I'm here with my design team post for Kitty Bee Designs - we're half way through our love / valentines challenge.

Here's my card - this will be my valentines card for my husband - good job he doesn't read my blog!!

This cute image is called My Heart Bunny - it's so super cute.  The papers are Crate Paper - Fourteen - which is a beautiful paper stack.  I'd like to say I've kept this quite simple for a reason - but actually I don't have many embellishments that are suitable for a guy card.  (Maybe I could buy some today!!)

Thanks for stopping by and looking - I hope you can join us for our challenge - you can link up your card here!

I'll be back with some challenges later - once I've spent all my money!
