Lady Marmalade

That's me this week!! I've been marmalading (and yes I know that's not a word!!) my heart out here and ended up with a lovely pile of filled jars - but if I NEVER see another Seville orange again it will be TOO SOON!!

Here's a couple of little gift boxes I made for Ben's teachers using the template in the new Magnolia Magazine - very quick and easy to do and quite effective I think!!

Bye for now.

Cute Card Thursday # 97 - Blooming Gorgeous!!

Yup it's Thursday again - which means another fabby challenge from Cute Card Thursday. This week we are sponsored by the amazing Wild Orchid Crafts and our theme is "Blooming Gorgeous". Oooooh I do lurrrrve flowers!!

Something about this beautiful Whiff of Joy stamp called out to me to use pencils so the Polychromos Pencils got a rare airing. The template for this card came from Splitcoaststampers. I've used paper from Basic Grey's Nook & Pantry paper pad and the lovely crochet flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Sentiment is Magnolia Stamps.

You really want to see the loveliness the DT have created this week too so make sure you check out the challenge blog.

Passion for Promarkers #36 - Pastel Green & Blossom

What a gorgeous girly colour combo from Passion for Promarkers this week - Pastel Green and Blossom. Goes perfectly with this Basic Grey "Sugar Rush" paper. I so love my Basic Grey and I think this collection is one of their best for a very long time.

The lovely girl is Demure from Sugar Nellie and she has been coloured with Promarkers and Ranger Inkssentials white pen. Sentiment is SU and flowers and leaves are Martha Stewart punches. Card Candy from Craftwork Cards finishes this card off. Lovely soft colours these - thanks to the PFP blog.

Daring Cardmakers - What's the Point?!!

I had to make a quick card last night to send away today and as I haven't used this Stampin' Up set yet I realised that I could enter the challenge this week from Daring Cardmakers which is to have a "pointer" on your card somewhere (an arrow, clockhand etc.) Everything except the ribbon is Stampin' Up. An unusual colour combination I will grant you - but my colour wheel told me 'twas good!!

Rushing off to take the wee fella to an appointment. Catch you later.

Friday Sketchers #86 & Penny Black Saturday - Something Sweet

Ooooh I seem to be in some sort of groove at the moment and am really enjoying creating again!!

This card was made with the really great sketch by Jacqueline on the Friday Sketchers challenge blog and is also for this week's challenge from Penny Black Saturday which is "Something Sweet". I think this sentiment by Penny Black fits the bill and I've used Tilda with Lollipop by Magnolia Stamps. She's coloured with Promarkers and Glossy Accents. I don't know where the dotty paper was from as it didn't have a name on it and I've had it years!! The card is SU and Bazzill. Flowers are Petaloo, brads are Karen Foster and four Card Candies from Craftwork Cards finish it off.

Thanks for looking.
