Happy Monday!

Hello there...hope you're having a wonderful Monday!

Today is my Birthday and so far its been a blissful day.....Joe had to go off to college this morning and so I had a nice little lie in and I've been crafting ever since! He'll be home soon and I have no idea what the afternoon holds for me!

Soooo....thank you to everyone who played along with my Birthday candy....the lucky winner, pulled from a hat, is Elaine! Well done hun, please send me an email with your address so I can post off your goodies!

I'm very pleased with my cards this morning.....here is the first one....


I know Easter was a couple of weeks ago, but I love this image and thought it went really well with my cute papers and buttons! I've been practising my Promarker colouring (inspired by the gorgeous Birthday cards that the Sweet Stampin DT sent me - thanks ladies!) and I'm actually really happy with this image. I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Allsorts - buttons and thread
DYSU - bling (I've added stickles to my easter eggs and butterfly)
CES - paper piercing (its around the blue paper)
Pollycraft - cute critters
Lili's Little Fairies - transport - I hope the pogo stick counts!

I've also made a second card this morning....


Instead of my Promarkers I've used my trusty pencils to colour this cute LOTV image. I've used my glossy accents on the window pane to try and make them look more glass like and I've added some stickles to the water drops. I love this fresh colour combo....not one that I'd usually go for, but I think it looks really pretty. I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - Spring flowers
Cupcake Craft Challenge - in the deep end (add depth)
Papertake Weekly - april showers / water everywhere
Simon Says Stamp - April showers bring spring flowers

Pop by all the challege blogs mentioned to see the wonderful DT cards that have been created this week!

Thanks for popping by today, hope to see you again soon!

Hi Wedgie, hope the Birthday celebrations went well.I see you spend the bulk of it crafting , what a perfect way to spend a birthday.Good on you !!
I spent yesterday in bed again , thought I was a bit better on Sunday but....not. Off to docs today, but if this is a virus doubt she will give me any anti-biotics,but am coughing so much am making myself sick. Tims gone to London , just for the day on business, and so I have been up with the lark.

Mondays cards, I love these two cards , must get back into the faux stitching again, it looks so nice , cant tell if yours is real or not?
I love that cute Bunny.

I see your birthday candy was won by Elaine.....was that me ? Im not sure as I usually enter things as Elaine Wheeler, because there are lots of us Elaine's.
If it is me then whoopee , and if its another Elaine than well done to them.
Have a lovely day , even though you are 33 years old now.....you can still have fun. :)lol

Hugs Elaine
