Say it With Flowers at Try it on Tuesday

 


Say It With Flowers is our new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and we would love to see how you interpret this.

I need some birthday cards and what better way to say Happy Birthday than with flowers.
A mop up oxide background to start and then this AALL & Create stamp, I also stamped the flower heads again, coloured and fussy cut,  the bottles were stamped on acetate, fussy cut and attached with Glosssy Accents.

The rest of the DT have some fabulous inspirations so please pop over to the main blog where you will also find all the challenge details.

Thanks for calling in, I know I haven't been around this week, we've had two poorly babies and they ended up in hospital on Thursday, but I'm pleased to say they're home and are so much better, although very clingy, so I've been helping out with lots of nursing and cuddles while Mummy and Daddy catch up on some much needed sleep.

Have a great day,
Avril xx

Colour my world - Mid month at Stamping Sensations


We're at the half way point of the month and that means more inspiration from the DT at Stamping Sensations where the challenge is Colour My world,  so that's anything nice and coclourful.
I've used a mono print background using Oxide sprays and a bit of mop up and stamped my Couture Lady from Dyan Reaveley in black and heat embossed with clear EP.  I stamped again on white card, fussy cut and coloured with Wilted Violet. The sentiments were again heat embossed with clear EP.

Oh So Cute!




The new challenge at Try it on Tuesday is Oh So Cute!  and what could be more cute than bunnies, Peter Rabbit and Friends to be precise.
I've made a batch of Thank You cards for DD and she wanted to continue with the Twins nursery theme, so these little stamps are getting well used.
I've used white linen card and cut Sizzix Stitched Rectangles to stamp the focal images which were watercoloured.  The sentiment was a magazine freebie.
The rest of the Design Team have some wonderful makes to inspsire you, so please pop over to the main blog where you will also find all the challenge details.
Things have been a little quiet around here, as now that SIL is back to work, I'm helping out with the Grandma duties.
Thanks for calling in, have a great day,

Winter Blues at Try it on Tuesday


 We often associate Winter Blues with January and so that reflects the new challenge at Try it on Tuesday.

Although I certainly haven't got the 'blues' this month due to the arrival of the twins, I did enjoy using my new Pablo the Penguin to create a winter scene.  I don't normally do cutie, but this little guy just melted my heart and I couldn't resist and no doubt he will come in very handy for future Christmas cards!

The rest of the DT have some fabulous inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog where you will also find all the challenge details.

A short post today as I'm on babysitting duties as the new parents have a couple of errands to do,
Have a great day,
