Daisies always bring a little sunshine

Many of you that heve visited my blog of late have probably noticed a flurry of creative activity. You all, no doubt, know that I'm off to Westpoint in Exeter in a couple of weeks and that I've been making as many samples as possible with stamps and lots and lots of flowers.


Today. I've made a card with flowers, but I've stamped them rather than using the mulberry paper ones. I'm using the daisy stamps from the I Brake for Stamps Flower Power sheet today. I felt the need to move on from the Glamour Girls for a lillte while just in case you thought that I was becoming obsessed.
One of the wonderful things about this card is that it's made with very little stash:
2 small stamps available here
1 small saying
a scrap of ribbon available here
some punched circles
The leaves are the holly leaves cut down so if you have any left over fron Christmas then get snipping to make them into something else. Just hoe that your friends are not botanically minded.
As the ribbon is tied on, I'm entering this card in the Craft Your Passion challenge for something tied on.

Forgotten Stamps 2

The other day I used one of my forgotten, Glamour Girls, stamps when I did a pink, white red challenge. Today, now that I've remembered that they are there I've pulled out another of those wonderful stamps to make this card. My apolgies for the image as it seems to be a bit slanted. It is New Yeard Day after all.

The stamp is from the glamour girls sheet of stamps and can be bought here.
The flowers can be bought here.

I've entered this card in the Saturday Sketch Challenge.

My First Easel Card

I know that this technique has been around for some time, but, this is the first one that I've ever made. So be gentle with me dear reader as it may not be up to the standard that many of you seem to achieve on the blogs that I've read.


What I like about the easle card is that it allows the recipient to see the front of the card. That, after all is what we've worked on. That's what we've spent hours trying to perfect. So let them see it!!!
If you like what you see and want to make it for yourself you can get the
rubber stamp here
the digital version here for only £1.50

I've entered this in the
My Time to Craft Challenge 121, Brand Spanking New
Digital Tuesday Anything Goes
The Shabby Tea Room, Shabby Chic Baby. This requitres some fabric and I have used ribbon.

My what an elegant card

The title of this is, 'My what an elegant card'. I gave it that title as that's what my husband said when he saw it. That is really a compliment as he never really says anything in particular. I feel very flattered and I have Mojo Monday, sketch 170 to thank for inspiring me to do this one. I just loved the take that Julee Tilman did so this is why you see this in front of you.


To make this card you will need:
Large ivory curly roses., which can be bought here.
Tan brown rose leaves from here.
Stampinback floral silhouette available here.

Hope that you like it as much as hubby!
