Good Morning!
It's time for a brand new challenge over at CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS!

The coloured image is from an Art Pad released by LOTV  a few years ago, they're now discontinued but are fab pre-coloured toppers to have at hand!

Good Morning!
It's the first Saturday of the month which means it's time for a new monthly challenge over at PBSC!
This month the challenge is a nice and easy theme of 'Anything Goes!'
I have had today's stamp for about 5 years, now I think about it it's probably more as I remember purchasing it when I first got into rubber stamping!

PETAL LU - ANYTHING GOES
INGREDIENTS -
Penny Black 'Uplifting Occasion' Rubber Stamp 
Penny Black Sentiment stamp
(The actual stamp says 'Happy Birthday to You...' but I only inked up the first part)

My Favourite Creations from 2016 !

Good Morning!
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!
I spent New Years Eve at work until late so by the time midnight hit I was fast asleep in bed!

Today I thought I would share with you my favourite creations from the previous year, just like sharing my favourite Christmas creations this is another traditional I like to keep up with each year. Why not share yours so I can take a peek?

First up are two Magnolia cards, I don't use their stamps as mush as I used to do but couldn't resist inking up these two cute designs ...
As you may already know Stamping Bella is one of my favourite stamping brands, this autumnal design was perfect to celebrate my favourite season!
Along with this next design that I thought would be great for both Christmas and New Year ...
and finally this lovely stamps of elephants for any occasion.
I don't usually make Easter cards but when I saw that this image was part of a design paper, I couldn't resist buying a sheet simply to so that I could make this card!
I would also like to add this as my entry for the current challenge over at DEEP OCEAN CHALLENGES where the challenge is to choose your 'No.1 Favourite Card from 2016'
The zesty lemon and lime colours I used on this card were perfect for the summer season ...
and fianly I shall end with another LOTV card, this time using one of their large sentiment designs for a wedding card. The dusky colour scheme was a favourite of mine last year!
I hope you enjoyed taking a look, I have the next week off work so fingers crossed I can get some more cards made!
HAPPY CRAFTING!
