Friends with Flair

FWF :)

Hope you like my simple card.
Found these darling flowers from Dovecraft, and the delicate paper is from Papermania - Pampered Pets. The sentiment is of course Unity, and as always, says it so well.

Looking for my mojo

Spent yesterday afternoon with my friend Lucy making cards. Or attempting to :{  Took me about an hour and a half to make just one card!!!!!!!!!!! I feel I am starting all over again. Too much work in my life just now and not enough play! Going back over to hers today to craft some more and have a natter.

I thought I might get my mojo started with some new ippity ;) so i have ordered these beauties from Emily today.  I have been longing for them for ageeeeeeeeees so today i am treating myself!
I say, why not spread a little love to yourself on Valentines Day : p
Now, to get back to looking for my mojo..........................

I recieved a gorgeous parcel of {ippity} from Nora, on Saturday. She is having a sale of older sets - so i got some lovely bargains! She also included a little free gift of beautiful papers and ribbon. It really made my day!! I was so excited to open it, and manged to find an hour -ish in the evening to create this easel card :)

Next it's the talented Jessica - hop on over!
Thanks for visiting

Home sweet home

I was so excited to get my new Unity July KOM in the post yesterday, and decided to ink up one of my lovely new stamps for the playdate cafe. Its a sweet little house with "home is where the heart is" and "there's no place like home" cleverly worked into the design.


The colours are dark brown, beige and green. I added a teeny accent of orange with one of my buttons to finish off. I have some friends who have been building a house for 7 years would you believe!!! and have just recently moved in, so this is going to them.
Off to have lunch with a friend now......Monday looms closer, and i will be back at work.....trying not to think about it
Have a great Friday ;)

Waltzing Mouse Challenge 9

I made a little card for this challenge yesterday. I used the Free Spirit set from Waltzing Mouse to create the zig-zaggy centre line, it reminded me a little of high rise flats/apartments.
I put the little stars above, and echoed it on the lable below. The sentiment is from {ippity} - the same one as i used in my lemon and lime summer card. Not sure where the paper is from, as it was a gift :) and I popped a little button on to complete the look.


It's a little different to my usual style, but I thought it would make a good "Bon Voyage" card for someone. What do you think?
Have a good day,

Summertime colours

I have chosen to make this card for two challenges, Crafts for Eternity "lemon and lime" and {ippity} challenge "Dog days of Summer".
This card says Summer to me because the fresh citrus colours remind me of cool summertime drinks, lemonade, cocktails on holiday and the flower in the middle is like a warm sunshine. I chose the {ippity} sentiment "sweet thoughts of you" from the spring set as i have many happy memories of this summer, meeting up with old friends who are precious to me, and also getting to know new friends on the craft forums. It is a little bittersweet for me too, as i know that when i go back to work very shortly, i will not be able to spend time creating and posting on here as i have been. Here is my card:

and here is a close up of the sentiment:

I also stamped lemon background paper using a "postcard" stamp - one of my little gems I bought on holiday this summer.

Enjoy the last days of the summer, my friends, as the song says - they could be the best days of your life - I have had such a wonderful summer, that I could believe that's true for me.
