Another Spring in My Step?

For those of you who know me, you'll understand what I mean that this is about as near to getting 'a Spring in My Step' as I'll be getting this year! As the Magnolia stamp is named 'The Flower Basket' I thought I'd better use it as its name suggests...

The flowers at the back of the basket are from a set of Hero Arts that I've had for ages; I stamped them and then masked them before stamping the flower basket. I later paper pierced and coloured them with gel pens. The daffodils (you've probably seen on an earlier card) were made following the Leone Em technique. It took me bloomin ages.....

Rock-A-Bye Hudson

I couldn't wait to get my Magnolia Flower Basket from CUL today and when I saw it I thought it would make a lovely babies cradle. My friend Rachel had a little boy this week 'Hudson' so it all tied in nicely. The blue papers are from SU Bashful Blue pack, which I think is one of the nicest colour packs that SU do. The frilly border is Martha Stewart (of course!). Little bit of glitter glue and a tiny little blue teddy punch and finished! I might just make one with flowers in next... Hope you like it x

Red Roses

My second Blog today - I had a bit of dig deep of the craft stuff today and found this lovely stamp that I've used many times - I think it's Penny Black and this velvet paper was bought a couple of Christmas ago from CUL. My Mum will like this - she lurves red!

Pretty In Pink

I just lurve these fairies from LOTV - in fact, I've just ordered more!

Butterfly Bling

I just lurve this butterfly - Marianne designs that I bought from CUL. Must confess to having a bit of trouble cutting it with my Cuttlebug but it worked beautifully with my Revolution. The peel-offs are from Craft Creations and the little butterfly is a Quickutz die. Maybe a black, white and silver butterfly isn't everyone's cup-of-tea but it's certainly got a lot of bling!!!!!!!

ADDED LATER - just had a look, not the best photo I know, but it is quite pretty in the 'flesh'....

Spring has Sprung!!!!!!!

Well finally some sunshine and I just couldn't help but use my fab new Magnolia watering can - it's just sooo pretty. I coloured it with my water colours and then highlighted with glitter gel pens. The background of the white one is stamped with "vine hearts 99p" from CUL using the Ranger Sea Shells inkpad (how many years have I had that???) and then they were both brought to life with daffodils and tiny tips made by moi. I'm really enjoying my crafting at the moment, trying things I've not done before and feeling confident when I do. Happy Spring everyone!
