Get Well Soon Card

This card is for a very dear friend of mine who is rather poorly at the moment after suffering a severe stroke. She lives in Cornwall so I can't even visit her so I made this little card to let her know she is in my thoughts and prayers.

The cute bear is of course a Penny Black, I have coloured him using Promarkers with a bit of Stickles glitter added to the flowers. I have no idea where the background paper is from, I have had it for ages, wish I did know, its really quite sweet and its double sided.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend, hope the sun shines wherever you are and don't forget to put your clocks forward tomorrow night!

Easter Packages

I made these little packages for my grandchildren this Easter, I wanted to give them something different this year so when I received this lovely Lili of the Valley bunny and daffs stamp I knew what I was going to do with it. The clear cello bags contain a chocolate Easter bunny and a mixture of chocolate chicks, eggs, ladybirds, all from Aldi, their chocolate is delicious!

I have coloured the bunny and daffs with Promarkers and added a punched flower in the top corner to hide the staple! Hope they like them!

Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day and were totally spoiled like all mums deserve to be. I had a lovely surprise, a new PINK Cuttlebug!! As regular followers of my blog will probably know, I broke my lil bug a few weeks ago and decided I would like a new pink bug when I could eventually afford to replace it. My girls knew how much I wanted one and they clubbed together for my pressy for today, isnt that fab?? Totally unexpected, I am happy with choccys and flowers (which I also had in abundance) on Mother's Day so to receive that big box and wrapped so beautifully was amazing. Thank you to my wonderful family for all the cards, flowers. choccy's, smellies and best of all, my PINK bug!

LOTV Bear with Balloons (Hearts)

This lovely image from Lili of the Valley is holding balloons that say 'MUM' but I have masked the balloons and added punched hearts in their place.

I have coloured the image with Promarkers, the BP is Forever Friends Pink Parfait
and the punch is of course a Martha Stewart.
