Hi all today I have two cards to show you that I have made using just two of the new releases from
My first card I made using the new image called 'Water Lilly Frog' I chose this image because my frogs have already started croaking merrily away.
I have used Bearly Mine Spots Papers in the fresh Spring colours of green and yellow, I have used a combination of both green and yellow card stock for mounting both image and papers, I added a gold/green ribbon, card candy, Die Cut corner and a stamped sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.
For my second card I have used the new image of the Windmill, I also added a Crafty Sentiments image called 'relax', all images have been coloured with Copics.  The papers are from the same set as above but this time is yellow and blue. I have added a strip of flowers that my mum gave me, some gems and a stamped sentiment. 
I would like to enter my cards into the following challenges:
I hope that you have enjoyed your visit and like my cards, I will see you later, hugs to all.

I have coloured this little cutie with Copics, the papers are a mixture from my stash, I have added a stamped ticket sentiment, gems, flowers punched with an MS punch, and a green ribbon which I runched at the one edge.  I think this colour combo is perfect for the start of March which brings hope and delight of the wonderful Spring time season.

Floating Free and an Easter Card

Evening all, I know it is unusual to see me post twice in one day but I made a couple of cards using some new releases available at The Paper Shelter, I just could not wait to show you them
My first card I made using the beautiful new image called 
Little Acrobat Doll
I have coloured her with Copics, the paper is also a new release called Love Letters, the set is so beautiful, I used my Victorian Edged cutting blade for all the cutting, mounting and layering, although not too much layering as I wanted the base paper to stand out.  I have used the colours of purple, pink and green, I added some lace to both side of the central strip, I used my scalloped Nestie dies to mount the image on, once I had coloured her I cut her out and adhered her 3'd with silicone glue, I added pearls, flowers, organza ribbon, dotty ribbon and some more Memory Box die cuts.
Why I called this floating free was because I have made the image float free of the card as seen below, with the help of acetate. 
It bobs and bounces when moved, underneath the image is the sentiment which I put into the Memory Box bird cage, the sentiment is silver and says 'thank you'. 

My second card shows the new image called 'Most Adorable Easter Bunny' oh dear I do love her so much. I have used the precoloured version, and added a few embellishments of gems, bow, pins, flowers and stickers.  
These images and more are now available at
I would like to enter my cards into the following challenges:

 I received this award from my long time blogging friend Rita I want to thank her so much for thinking of me when passing it on
I also wanted to let you know for any viewers of Create and Craft the new CD release form Ooh La La is showcasing tomorrow if you don't want to miss it just check out the listing and maybe record it there are two shows to watch with Hayley.

I hope that you like my cards and have enjoyed your visit, see you later hugs to all.



Hi all today we have a new challenge for you at
this week the theme is 
As always the stunning prize up for grabs is a gift voucher worth $20 in the Paper Shelter store. If you play without a TPS image you are up for three digis of your choice. You sure don't want to miss out on these fabby prizes, will you? 

Here is my DT card using the adorable image, Bear Picking Flowers, I have coloured him with Copics.  The papers are also from The Paper Shelter collection called Sweetest Love.
I have made a double Gatefold Card, the flower on the front is made using the SU daisy die cut, I have used different card stock the main one being SU Razzleberry.
This is a picture of the inside, I hope that you can see the inside fold that I decorated with gold mirri card which reflects the image and papers in the central part of the card. 
I added another flower and sentiment 
The final picture shows the image a little closer. 
I do hope that you will come join us this week in our Fancy Folds Challenge

Hi all before I tell you about our new challenge I would like to thank you all for your well wishes.  I went to my doctor, I have been put on both steroids and anti biotics, I had to take 6 of the steroids as soon as I got home plus one of the anti biotics plus my tablets for depression, I have been having breathing difficulties so I thinks the steroids are to help with that as well as the infection I have. I don't normally read the papers that come with the tablets but as I have never taken steroids before just thought that I would check and it seems that if you suffer with depression or mental health issues, which I do, they could escalate the problem, so I had better beware.  I was a little concerned because my doctor always overruns with his appointments and I was kept waiting for over 3/4 of an hour and the surgery was actually all locked up by the time I got in to see him.  I thought it all was a bit rushed but he is the doctor so I am sure he knows what he is prescribing.  
Anyway enough of me I want to tell you about our new challenge over at
this week the theme is all about
No square ones allowed.
Here is my Spring Card I hope that you are going to like it.
I have taken two pictures so you could see it from the side, I have kept it quite simple this time, I have used the gorgeous Crafty Sentiments image 'Cute Amy' I love her and she is a dream to colour which I have done with Copics.  I mounted a doily onto the top part of the card then added some paper and flower I cut Amy out and 3'd her with silicone glue. I added some ribbon and flowers to the bottom part of the card.

I will be entering this one into some challenges but I will do that later as i have scheduled this post.

I would like to thank you all for visiting I do hope that you will come join us this week at
we would love to see what shaped cards you use.
Hugs to all see you later.
