Hello all hope you are all doing well on this sunny but cold Saturday. These are my ATCs for this months ATC Swappers which is themed April Fool/Humour. I took ages to think about this one and decided to go for the Ethel and Murray range of stamps. This image fitted the ATC just right so I stamped her four times cut each one out coloured them in different colours and added the best quote I thought suited. Hope you like these Hugs to you all Lorraine x

Hi all I hope you don't get fed up with me thanking you for your lovely comments but I just have to say it 'thank you' lol.
This card is my entry for Mojo Monday, Cute Card Thursday themed Floral Fantasy and Whiff of Joy themed Black and White with a Splash of Colour. I do like this sketch from MM and thought it would work so well for the other two challenges as well. I have always loved black and white and very often wore those colours when I was at work (to look business like lol). Oh and it is supposed to make you look slimmer which is awesome lol. I have used one of my Whiff of Joy stamps and coloured her with promarkers except for the bright pink which is Sakura Gelly Roll pen and it really shines. I have also added two more of the flower bloom freebies from Jak at Crafters Kitchen, you must go see her blog it is fab and the flower blooms come in different styles and colours I think she is wonderful to give them to us to use for free. The flower blooms I thought worked well for the Cute Card Thursday 'Floral Fantasy' challenge, they are rather luciuos.
Good morning dear friends hope you are all well. This is my entry for two challenges the first is Daisy & Dandelion themed 'With Love' and the second is Stamptacular Sunday the theme being 'This is for the Birds'. For this card I have used backing papers from Funky Fairy's the images of the dog and bird is from the Daisy & Dandelion range and the flower is a free download courtesy of Jak at Crafter's Kitchen I also added some self adhesive lace. Hope you like this but please let me know your views mean so much to me. Hugs Lorraine x

This award was given to me by lovely fellow crafter Craftypagan I am always so proud to be thought of when these awards come around and this one I am extra pleased to get because of those little images and the fact that I can bring a smile to others. The rules are to pass this onto five other blogs that I think worthy which is always the difficult part because there are so many fun and inspirational blogs that I visit mostly on a daily basis. The blogs I have chosen are as follows:
Hugs to all my followers and fellow crafters you bring me so much delight.
OK this is my card for two challenges the first is Flutter By Wednesday which, next to the Tilda challenges, is a firm fave because its fairy's and butterflies. The theme is to use die cuts and/or punches I have actually used my Cricut machine to cut out the shapes that the fairy is mounted on and a round edge corner punch on the backing papers. The fairy stamp I got from Faerie Song Art Stamps and is for their challenge on PCP the backing papers are freebies from Gina K the ribbon is from my own stash. Hope you like it Hugs Lorraine x
Hi all this is my entry for this weeks challenge at Spoonful of Sugar which is to use die cuts and/or punches and a new challenge site I have found called Stamp With Fun. For the Spoonful of Sugar I have used my Cricut for the four pink shapes the image is from Funky Kits I have used a 'lip' corner punch on the image and backing papers (the backing papers were a freebie from Gina K) the ribbon and flowers are from my stash and I have used promarkers for the colouring. The theme for Stamp with Fun is to use Pink and Brown and the Neapolitan backing papers work well for this. Hope you like it hugs Lorraine x
