♥ one card ~ two challenges ♥

A cute Easter card to share with you all today  Love the combo of these 2 colours, I didn't have any peachy colour enameled dots which would have been nice (on the next crafty stuff list of "must haves)
I used an Impression obsession bunny die, Die-namics notepaper die and fishtail banner.  The sentiment is from Wplus9 and the chevron paper from MME.  The gorgeous!! felt flag pin I bought ages ago from Andrea Budjack, her blog is only open to invited readers now, unfortunately i'm not one of them which I really miss popping by her blog seeing her beautiful creations.
I'm entering my card into Simon Says Stamp ~ Animal Antics and also into Let's Craft and Create ~ use punches/dies.

Have a fab day!!

♥ CAS~ology ~ wet ♥

I found this beautiful free printable a while ago, once I remember were I got it from I will give credits.
I printed it out and then cut out with L'il inkers rectangle mat stitch dies and layered on some Papertrey raspberry fizz.  The background paper I used is very subtle grey/white chevron paper from Studio Calico and just added a few enameled dots.
I am entering my card into CAS~ology challenge "wet" and hope you all are having a lovely weekend

♥ Let's Craft & Create~ punches & dies ♥

It's my husband's birthday tomorrow  I have just made this card for him. I thought that the grid background paper worked well with the notebook die from die-namics. I added a heart and chipboard tag embellishment (which I have had both for years!! in my stash ... LOL) and a few enameled dots to co-ordinate.
I'm entering my card into ... Let's craft and create challenge, which is to use punches & dies and I think it's safe to say "we all love our dies" :)

have a lovely day!! :)

♥ hello ♥

Hello .... :)   at last I get around to making a card.  I got out one of my favourite paper pads from My mind's eye  {the sweetest thing} ,  I just adore these papers.  The colours I have used are a little bit "out" of my "pink" comfort zone ... LOL,  but I just had a wee play about with the papers and im quite please how it all came together.  I used die-namics "hello" die {cut out 3 times to raise it up} and some enameled dots to co-ordinate with the papers.

Thanks for popping by ♥

(i'm still having blogger issues, I have to re-set my font every time I write a new post, if I don't
when I start typing absolutely nothing shows up (",) ... if anyone is experiencing same issues
can you let me know?  I would really appreciate it}

♥ CAS on Sunday ~ lovey dovey ♥

A cutie card to share with you today :)  and I think it's fair to say that we all loooove Winnie the Pooh  This is a digi image I bought from Etsy and I layered it on L'il inkers rectangle stitched mats and a panel of Echo Park design paper in the background.  The lovely sentiment is from CAS-ual friday stamps that I won last year :)  and of course the ever so popular enameled dots.
I'm entering my card into CAS on Sunday challenge, which the theme is "lovey dovey"

LOL ... nice & bright and funky!  so you can let me know if it's thumbs up or down?? ;)

Supplies used:

"hello" die from Savvy
enamelled dots
washi tape
kraft card
