In the garden....

....well, the snow came last night! It looks pretty out there, but I'm not a huge fan of the snow really....my car is rear-wheel drive and therefore goes mad in the snow and so I can't drive! Plus I worry about twisting my stupid knee and setting off a flare up (I really don't want to end up on crutches again!!). So, with all this white stuff outside whats a girl to do?? Get crafting!!

We're having a valentines themed crafternoon tea next weekend....and as usual I'm really looking forward to getting the girls together for some yummy food and fab crafts! I'm trying to pick the crafts we'll do this time, but I've already decided on my sweet treats!Plus I've been making some decorations for Lorna's flat! Sooooo exciting!

As well as all this planning, I've been making cards and have two I'd like to share with you....



My first card is a bespoke card that someone asked me to make for them.....its pink, shiny and A4 in size......and I had great fun making it! I was given the brief - shoes, bling, pink and silver and that fab sentiment! I'm not sure who its for, but I hope they like it!! I stamped the sentiment with my letter stamps and coloured with my Promarkers. Then I made the shoes out of silver and fab pink sparkly paper. They are 3D and really pop from the card....I added some sequins for extra bling!

I'm entering this card in Allsorts Free & Easy Challenge this week.


I'm really pleased with this second card....its another colour combo that I don't use very often, but I think it looks fab. Fab flowery backing papers, punched flowers, faux stitching and two little bunny rabbits = CUTE!!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Hugs and Kisses (I think they're kissing!!)
Sir Stampalot Challenge - in the garden - I wish my garden looked this lush at the moment!!

Right, I still have lots more crafting time before Joe comes home for work....so I'm off!!

Thanks for popping by today,
