Happy Birthday ...

Today at Passion for Promakers we don't want to see any squares/rectangles so I have gone for my first ever rocker card using this delightful Tilda from the new collection called 'Lost & Found'
by Magnolia.

Card base was cut with a scalloped die and folded in half using some card from my stash.
I have used flowers, cloth, ribbon, sentiment, hand stitched & clear heat embossed
the balloon along with a few layers of decoupage.
The polka dot paper is from Nitwit collections and also the pressie pile too.
Kit currently on sale!

This weeks sponsors are the

who have a £10 voucher up for grabs for the lucky winner!

Please come and play along this week
take care love

Birthday Boy ...

Here is some more inspiration for our challenge at
A Little Bit Crafty which for the month of February
is titled 'Man Up'.  Really pleased with how this turned out, Edwin came to me this
Christmas and I have used another Wobble Spring for the football for some movement.
This card is for my Son, grown up now but loves his football.

The papers are once again from Nitwit Collections

I have used ribbon, netting, gems, turf.  Hand stitched complete
with football corners.  Coloured with Promarkers and the sentiment  
was made on my Silhouette.

Why not come and play along with us, we do neglect the boys in card making
and I know it is hard to make for them but if you play along with us that will be another
card off the list!

Sending U my Love ...

Clean and simple but a cutie from me today with James & laptop.
Totally 'dotty' about this one, took me hours!!
Tried to get a bit techy with the wording too.

Pretty simple, Kraft card base, mat, layer & sentiment on my Portrait
and coloured with Promarkers.  A little hand stitching and a glittered dome heart to finish.

I would like to enter this into the following challenge -
Graph'It Marker Challenge - Floral/Love (I Won Top 3)!

Love is in the air ...

Look at this fabulous new kit from Nitwit Collections
called Truly Madly Deeply, plenty of papers and elements (as always)
and a kit that is going to be very popular me thinks!

I have really enjoyed playing with it, all I have added is a card blank, white ribbon,
a charm, pearl heart, hand stitched and a button.
There is a sentiment in the kit which says 'all you need is love' which I was
using until I had a light bulb moment and made my own using the papers.

Thank you for visiting my blog today, have a good week love
