Blooming Birthday's

Morning all, another Friday already.  I'm a bit excited today.  Got a night out planned for tonight, seems like ages since I was last out.  We're going out for a meal then heading to the Theatre to see Buddy The Musical.  It was my birthday pressie to hubby but he'd have looked a bit daft going on his own so I had to get a ticket for myself too lol.

 Can't believe that next week is April.....think the weather is in practice this week for the April Showers, we've had it here for the last 3 days.  Good job my card is a little brighter than the weather!  It's for the new challenge over at 

This week it's a Spring Colours challenge and we're sponsored by the fabulous 

My card today features Hanglar Girl With Flower stamp.  Don't know of anywhere that still sells these but if anyone out there knows leave me a comment, I've got a couple but would have loved more.

 Have a great weekend everyone xx

Spring Is Springing!

Woops!  Have you seen the time?!  Only just realised I was supposed to have a post scheduled this morning to go on here and totally forgot!  Still better late than never I hope.  So what you all been up to?  Boss is away on holiday this week so to be honest it's been a bit of a holiday in here too lol.  It's given me a bit of time to have a play with some of my crafty bits too, just in time for our latest challenge over at 

This time we're having a nice easy challenge and it's always very popular, it's Anything Goes.

We have a great sponsor again and they are

My card for today is another Saturated Canary Image called Princess Rose Red.  I found some flowers that I'd forgotten about in my stash and they matched up so well with the lovely papers I've used.  Hope you like her!

Frizzy Jynx

Hi guys, can you believe it's the 1st of the Month again!  It seems like only yesterday that I was sorting stuff out for Christmas and we're already 2 months into the New Year.  As it's the 1st of the Month it also means it's new Challenge Day over at Crafts Galore Encore

 Our Sponsors for this challenge are the fabulous
Please do go and check out their lovely shop.
The challenge this time is to use either a digi image or a stamp somewhere on your creation.  I've chosen to use a digi image from Saturated Canary on my card.  I had such fun colouring her.  

I'm looking forward to catching up on some card making this weekend.  I set out with such good intentions last year, hoping to have all my cards sorted out so I didn't have to make them all in a rush...this year I'm determined to really knuckle down and get it sorted!  Whatever you're up to, crafting, shopping or just chillaxing....enjoy! xx
