Papertake Weekly - my favourite things

I just loved this challenge from Papertake Weekly - to use my favourite things. Easy peasy when I have so many favourite things:
I chose my new K&Co papers which I've been using a lot just lately and love, these are from the Berry Sweet pad. I edged the paper with my Colorbok chalk (lime pastel). I use these all the time as I love edging, and have all the queues and lime pastel is a particular favourite. The other favourite is the Fiskars corner scissors Nostalgia which I used on the corners of the stamped image. Not sure who the owl clear stamp is by (coloured in with my Promarker pens); the cardstock is Stampin Up another fav of mine and this is from the "bright" set; the "happy birthday" is a rub on by Pebbles. Another bright and colourful card which I just love.

That's it for today I must clear up now and see about doing dinner before we go up the coast for our usual evening of looking out to sea and may be a walk along the cliff tops.
Take care, thanks for looking :)

Stamp Something - pink, green & yellow

Oh I just love colour challenges and this one for Stamp Something in pink, green and yellow was just up my street. Here's my card:
I used Berry Sweet K&Co papers and the stamped image is a clear Imaginisce snag'em stamp called "chick". Prima flowers and a Doodlebug velvet brad finish off the card.
Don't you just love those gorgeous bright colours.

Friday Sketchers # 60

I'm on a role today :) here's a card I made using the lovely Friday Sketchers sketch:
The image is a clear Forever Friends, the patterned glitter card is by DCWV with two velvet brads to finish.
It's great being able to relax for a while :)

2Sketches4You - Kazan's sketch # 30

I took a fancy to this sketch from 2sketches2you and made this card:
Again it's using the Madeline K&Co paper and also an embellishment from the Madeline range. I hope my RAK for the month will love this card as much as I do.

Take care :)

Mojo Monday # 94

Another week and here's a card made using the Mojo Monday sketch which I love:
I used mostly K&Co stash, my new Brenda Walton Madeline paper and a pretty glitter flower from the Wild Raspberry range. I love the colours of the card.

Sorry I haven't been around, I'm taking antibiotics and painkillers for a sore/tender tooth which was causing me immense pain earlier in the week and it's been a really hectic and stressful week at school. Phew, only one more week to go :) I've been buying some new Christmas stash as I hope to get in the mood to start making some Christmas cards during the summer holidays. I have a thing for snowmen at the moment so have been buying snowmen stamps.

Thanks for looking :)

Mojo Monday # 93

My mojo has gone on holiday I think. I desperately need to make some cards and also some invites for my Mum's 80th birthday, but I just don't have the inclination or energy. Having looked at the Mojo Monday blog I liked the design so decided to have a go for a colleague's birthday card for the 14th. Here it is:
The image is from the Stampin Up set Crazy For Cupcakes and the image I am going to use for the invites. The pretty glittered and embossed patterned paper is by DCWV. We love cakes and cookies in the office at school so guess this card should go down quite well :)

Thanks for looking :)
