MFT February 2020 Birthday Project Challenge

Hello there...

I have a card to share today for the My Favorite Things February 2020 Birthday challenge. The necessary element since it was February was to use a heart on the card.

I have used the Adorable Elephants stamp set along with Brushstroke Expressions for the sentiment and there are lots of hearts in evidence.


Thanks so very much for visiting. Your kind comments are always much appreciated. Cheers.

Gina K Designs February 2020 Challenge

Welcome everyone....

I am playing along with the February challenge over at Gina K Designs which is to add texture to our cards.

I have used a really old stamp set from Gina K Designs that I still love as it has a great sentiment to accompany it. Alas, I cannot remember the name.


The texture on my card comes in two forms, an embossing folder in a knit design and also some felt flowers and leaves.


Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day. Cheers.

MFT Sketch Challenge 477

Hello and welcome...

I have a card to share today for the MFT Sketch challenge. Here is the sketch.


For my card I used that adorable stamp set...Polar Bear Pals. I just got the matching die set so that made it really easy to cut out the bear and the fish bucket.


Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day. Cheers.

Honey Bee Stamps - Everything Wonderful

Welcome everyone....

I have a card to share today that I made using the Everything Wonderful stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps. I just love floral images and that great big floral cluster just spoke to me as soon as I saw it.

I stamped it on watercolour paper and coloured it up with ZIG markers and cut it out with the coordinating die. Mounted on cardstock cut with a Spellbinders die. Added the little tag with the sentiment and some ribbon and pearls.



Thanks so very much for stopping by. Cheers.

Honey Bee Stamps Spring Chicks

Hello everyone and welcome....

I simply love chickens. I live on a small farm and I have a small flock of chickens who I think of as pets with benefits. They are all different heirloom breeds and of course they all have their own names. They come when they are called and will jump up and sit in my lap to be petted.

So of course when I saw this adorable stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps called Spring Chicks it was a must have. 



I have created a card today using the sweet little hen from that set. I stamped on watercolour paper and coloured her up with ZIG markers. Her colouring is much the same as my hen Snowdrop who is a Delaware breed. Doesn't she have just the sweetest little face! The sentiment is from the coordinating stamp set called Eggcelent Sentiments and of course inside the card it reads "You're a Good Egg". Love it!

Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by. Cheers....
