Spring Flowers - Week # 120

Well I guess it's the week-end & what a funny day we had today (SUN) sunshine, hail & then sunshine again, suppose we mustn't grumble it is winter still. 

This weeks challenge has been set by the hostess with the mostess our lovely Shelley the theme for this week is Spring Flowers & the fabby Sponsor is Stitchy Stamps but whats the prise I hear you say well it's $10 to spend in their store I'm so jealous (I wont it).

Store Bio

"Hi my name is Stitchy and I am Co-Owner of Stitchy Bear Stamps...we started this store April 1st, No Fooling ha ha..I live in upstate New York with my husband and two TEENAGE adults ha ha, I do say that loosely as they think they run the show here, NOT...

I been creating stamps for a little less than a year now and I am totally addicted to the craft..I started about 4 years ago making digital scraps and I knew there was much more out there, so a friend of mine introduced me to digital stamps...and the rest they say is history...I look forward to seeing all the beautiful creations come through...good luck everyone..stitchy xoxox"


Now for my card well I tried to be a bit clever & I really shouldn't because it doesn't work ha ha a five minute card took all afternoon, first I kept cutting it in half then the doily turned out to be too small for a card so I placed it on a square card I used a digi image the flower from the Marianne twice & entwined it. I used a freebie paper from Pink Petticoat, MS Punch, a 3D flower that I made up ages ago. I hope you like it as I thought the end result was OK.

Think I have caught Ewan's Hypo Bug

This week-end my grandson has been on a hyper high for some reason or other unlike his poor sister who was really offish on Sat but was a bit better Sun, and here are a couple of reasons why I think I caught his bug.

Laura's Baby Card

This is for my Daughter Laura's baby that is due in a few weeks time I am so excited just as I was Grace & Ewan (can you guess what we're having).
This an 8x8 card layered with a pale blue card I then added a pearlised paper from Craftwork Cards, flowers from Wild Orchid, a rub-on backed with a slightly deeper blue which also backed the pram digi stamp (sorry don't know the owner) & flower at the bottom of the card which was done with Marianne Creatable finished off with a charm.

Party Card

This is another card from the Katy Sue & Mike Payne Party Buffs CD there are 3 in this set for stepper cards all really mannish all you have to provide is the glue & card.


Look at this little treasure I found in a bin at church isn't it great now the only thing is deciding what to do with it ................ ant ideas?

Don't you just hate it when you can't find a desent man's card well I think between Mike Payne & Katy Sue they have just nailed it with this new CD Wine Buffs, it has shaped cards, 3D, labels, humour & so much more. This a card I made from said CD the only stuff extra is the card & glue if you don't add the paper for printing, I liked this so much I had to enter it onto this weeks Challenge on OSCC Which is being hosted by lovely Itzuvit and the Theme is NUMBERS

The lovely Sponsor is  Ellephantastic

The winner will receive 4 images of their choice.
