The Chickens!

No cards have been made here in the last couple of days, feeling a bit lack luster. Thought I would show a picture of our new chickens, one I can tell appart and she is going to be called Rosie (she has rosy cheeks at to moment, her feathers are a bit thin). The other three all look the same to me at the moment, hope I will start to be able to tell them apart eventually or it will be like the Gerbils, we have spot and the 3 pips! They are only 10 weeks old so a long wait for eggs but they are great to watch.

I bought a Cuttlebug today!!! I have sold a load of stuff I dont use on ebay (not quite enough enough to cover it but i couldn't wait), look forward to its arrival :)

Cute Card Thursday 29 and Blog Candy

This is my entry for this week's Cute Card Thurday Challenge . The challenge was to use lots of sparkle. I have used one of my new hAnglar and stAnglar stamps (O boy were they worth the wait!!!) and added glitter to her wings, scalf and some of the flowers in on the background paper along with a couple of gems for extra sparkle. The card is based on an adaptation of the sketch here by Nikki.
There is some great blog candy over on Michelle's blog here yet more stamps to add to my Alota wish list :)
Wishing everyone a happy weekend, it is an exciting one here as we are collecting our new chickens later today!!!

Forever Friends - 60th Card

I had been asked my a friend of my Mum to make a 60th Birthday card for her husband. He is really into DIY so it seemed a good excuse to buy this Forever Friends stamp :) Hoping I'll be able to get a few cards done today as DS is at playgroup all day, you never know!

Jasmin's Card

I made this card for my son's friend at playgroup who is 4 this weekend, I thought 'Sweet and Sassy' would be appropriate as she is a bit 4 going on 14!

Pretty Pressings Sketch Challenge and Cute Card Thursday 28

Two posts in one day, not a lot of housework happening here, and the kids are behaving so making the most of it.

I made this card with the sketch on Pretty Pressings with Cute card thursday in mind as the subject was food - a yummy cupcake!

Wiff of Joy Stamps - Guest Designer Call

Here is my entry for the Wiff of Joy Guest Designer Call. The Wiff of Joy stamps are amazing, I have managed to restrain myself so far from buying any, mostly because the one I particularly wanted was out of stock :) (I have no actual will power). The requirement for the Designer call were to make a new card using any of Katharina's sketches. I love sketches and had a good look through all of the ones on her blog before choosing to use sketch 15. My challenge to myself at the moment is to take better pictures of the cards I make, instead of a quick snap on the kitchen table. I hope you like the card, if you havn't seen the Wiff of Joy stamps do go and look!
