Daisy,daisy . . . .

This is one of the cards I'll be making at Samuel Taylors on Sunday 11th. It's my first class using aqua markers and I really hope that the ladies enjoy using them as much as I have.
I've used the Woodware Boxed Daisy Trio stamp and an Anna Marie Designs Happy Birthday script stamp for the background.

The two cards I'll be making use aqua markers to create backgrounds; proper messy crafting :-) Happy days.

Hope that you had a fabulous Easter weekend. Sending hugs, Jayne xx

Ooh La La!

Today I've used one of the newer NitWit Collections papers, Oooh La La, with my all time favourite Wedding Couple stamp from Lili of the Valley. I really love this colour combo and think that this collection might be my new favourite ;-)
Oh my, I can't tell you how many times I stuck paper to the inside of the box by accident. I wasn't quite with the plot yesterday and think, maybe, I might have fared better leaving it to a new day!!
Aww, there's something so joyful and hopeful about this pair :-)
The butterflies and hearts and little sentiment plaque all come with the Ooh La La collection. Perfect!
I'd have a lie down in a dark room but, sadly, I've got too much to do!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend. Big hugs xxx

Second LOTV sneaky peek :-)

I hope that you're all having a fabulous week. The weather has been lovely here and the girls got to play out after school for the first time in ages :-)
Today I have my second card featuring LOTV's beautiful Jasmine with phone stamp. The new releases are out on March 31st and you can pre-order now :-)
The papers are from the beautiful Serenity collection from Craftwork cards. The little flowers come with the papers :-)
I absolutely love the teen friendly stamps in this new release!

Hope you have a lovely week. Hugs, Jayne xx

LOTV sneaky peek :-)

Super giddy this morning :-) Today I have the beautiful 'Jasmine with phone' which is due to be released by LOTV on March 31st. The new stamps are fabulous and my must have list is ever growing!
I've teamed her up with the Snow Princess papers from NitWit Collections.
My to do list does not seem to be getting any shorter! Must go and get cracking. Hope you're having a fabulous week. Big hugs, Jayne xx

LOTV Facebook Spring Challenge

This is my card for the LOTV Facebook Challenge which ends on the 13th. The fab prizes comprise:

- any two sentiment sheets or
- any 5 rubber stamps or
- any 1 cross stitch kit or
- £20 to spend in the eBay store 

The fifth winner will win £10 voucher from the ribbon girl

I only had a small amount of this beautiful Maya Designs paper left and to my absolute horror I put the double sided tape on the wrong side of the smaller square. What a dope! I ended up gutting the larger square so that I had coordinating paper. I must not watch the Blacklist and craft at the same time!!!
That's me for today. I hope it's not raining with you today. I spent the whole of yesterday soggy :-( 
Sending hugs, Jayne xx

Easter Bunny

Lili of the Valley (facebook page) are running a fab little Spring Challenge. You have until the 13th of March to enter and all we want to see is a card with a Spring theme :-) There are five fabulous prizes up for grabs:

The first 4 winners will receive 
- any two sentiment sheets or
- any 5 rubber stamps or
- any 1 cross stitch kit or
- £20 to spend in the eBay store

I have made a super quick card using one stamp from the recent trio launch.
The die is from the  Sue Wilson Australian Collection and is called Sydney. It's such a pretty set and works perfectly with these trio stamps.
I hope all the Mummies out there have had a fabulous Mother's Day. Sending hugs, Jayne xxx

Gnome Home :-)

Something a bit different today. Lovely Jo from Samuel Taylor's let me bring this beautiful Stampendous 'Gnome Home' stamp home to make a sample for the shop. It's such a stunning stamp. I don't think I've ever coloured a tree before and I may have had a wobble or two over it but I reckon it you stand well back it looks just fine :-)
I faffed forever with ribbon and bows and sentiments but decided to leave it like this. It could have some with some mushrooms in the bottom right or maybe a gnome. I shall have another go.
Hope you're having a fantastic week. Is snow forecast for tomorrow? My girls will be giddy. Hugs, Jayne xx
