Birthday Bunny!

Hello everyone.

I've been a bit sick this last week with a vertigo/inner ear thingymajigy!  Better now though!

Have made a couple of cards this week.  Been looking on Pinterest a fair bit and found some inspiration on there. If you haven't joined the Pinterest world yet, what are you waiting for???

Well anyway, this is the first one.  I have a new Big Shot machine and I LOVE IT!!!

My stamp is by LOTV and the embossing is done with the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday folder.  Coloured with my ProMarkers of course!  The rest of the stuff was from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp : Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesdays : PTT#61 Anything Goes
Passion For ProMarkers : Ribbons & Buttons

This is the second one, inspired by Pinterest.

Used my Big Shot again and also my new border punch. The flowers, button and twine are from my stash.

And the last one was also inspired by Pinterest. A friend gave me a few doilies. They are smaller than the picture I saw on Pinterest so I just made my card a bit smaller. I stamped and cut out a butterfly. It looked a bit blank with nothing on it, so I stamped a few more. A couple went a bit wonky but I am fairly happy with the end result.

Lion Birthday

This is my second post of the day.

I used a freebie digital stamp from Meljen's Designs, coloured with ProMarkers. He's just gorgeous! My DP is from my stash and the blue card was put through the Cuttlebug. The button and sticker were both from my stash. The Kraft card was from Typo (where my awesome son works when he's not at Uni).

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Precious Moments

I have been busy today and have made two cards. Will do a separate post for each though.

The first one is a baby card. The digital stamp is Ginny with Flowers by Pink Gem, coloured with ProMarkers. Very cute!  The DP is from Kaisercraft and the blue one from my stash.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Card for Karen's Mum

My friend, Karen, has asked me to make a 70th birthday card for her mum. She asked for purple and butterflies. This is my card I have made for her.

I searched on Google for a square sketch and found a great one by PinkPiggyWiggy (many thanks Dawny P xx)

The stamp is from LOTV. The DP and sentiment are from Kaisercraft. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The branches are from my Stampin' Up Two Step Bird Punch. The butterfly is the Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly Punch. The lace is from World of Lace (who is an absolutely wonderful English man who has a stall at Carrara Markets on the Gold Coast). I made my own twine with some cross stitching twine. Coloured in with ProMarkers and KindyGlitz.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Penguin Card

Well, I didn't think I would have time to make a card today. I had a last minute cancellation this morning so thought I would do a bit of stamping! I bought this cute little penguin stamp from Kaisercraft last weekend - paper pieced him onto white, blue and stripey DP from my stash. A little bit of KindyGlitz on his hat and nose and there we go!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

PaperPlay - Something Old, Something New (something old was my card, paper and brads, something new was my lovely new penguin stamp)

Thanks for visiting. Have a great weekend. Love and hugs. Jo xx
