♥ Simon says stamp ~ anything goes ♥

Little bit of glitter and sparkle today with my card, I am loving that all the glitter is back on trend ;) My Mum is amazing!  she goes to town every week and always brings me gorgeous glitter card, vellum and washi tapes every week, she is a gem, I have the "BEST" Mum in the world.
Today's card I am joining in with Simon says stamp ~ anything goes challenge
The dies I have had ages, the little bird is from Poppy stamps and the twiggy branch from Memory box.  I cut a strip of design black/white paper and strip of glitter card to add some interest to side of my card and finally used my mister tool from Ranger (great tool, works with all your markers/copics) Also joined in the trend of wrapping gold thread behind sentiment in a messy bundle, seen a lot of card makers doing this and it looks fab.  To finish my card had to add enamel dots ;)

enjoy your evening

♥ Cute bunny ♥

Another bunny rabbit springtime card today.   I preferred it without a sentiment, so it can be an any occasion card.  All the dies I used are from L'il inkers apart from the stitched circle die which is from MFT.  The design papers I used are all from Echo Park, and a couple of enamel dots.
Very CAS and I love the colour combo :)

Have a fab Monday ♥

♥ Water colour thanks ♥

Hi there ... I am just loving all the gorgeous water colouring that's on trend with card making.  I don't have any water colour sets at the moment, so I used my tombow markers (that I have had years and they still haven't dried up)  and just used them like I have seen tutorials done using the distress markers.  I layered up Lawn fawn scripty "thanks" die 3 times and added sequins and Doodlebug white enamel dots and a cute mini wooden peg.
I thought the black and white bold striped design paper from Echo Park made the whole design "pop" :)

Thanks for stopping by ♥
