Hi everyone,


Back with a new card to share and I have taken inspiration from two challenges:





A sketch challenge from Just Us Girls













A sentiment challenge from Paper Players








A colour challenge from Meighan (LOL):


Night of Navy, Riding Hood Red, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla.



I used Night of Navy for the base of my card and then I added an embossed piece of Riding Hood Red cardstock.  The embossing folder used is the Elegant Lines textured impressions embossing folder.


The butterflies are from the Beautiful Wings and Beautiful Butterflies Dies and I have used the Stampin’ Pastels Night of Navy to create a touch of shading on the two Very Vanilla butterflies.


I have used the Circle Scissor Plus to cut out the large two circles.  The large circle is from a sheet of the Botanical Gazette DSP.





Stamp set: Perfect Punches

Card: Night of Navy, Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla
Ink: Riding Hood Red

Accessories:  Botanical Gazette DSP, 3/8” (1cm) Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, Stampin‘ Pastels, Sticky Strip, Scallop Oval Extra-Large Punch, 1-3/8” x 5/8” (3.5 cm x 1.6 cm) Oval Large Punch, Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Dies, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Dies, Basic Pearls, Elegant Lines Embossing Folders, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



I am really happy with the end result – what do you think? 


Please come back soon….. Meg x

For You


Hi everyone how was your weekend?


Mine was great!  I caught up with a friend of mine I have know since were 5 years old and every time we catch up it is wonderful.


Our children all played together and it was nice to get away for the weekend.  I think sometimes we forget to stop and just enjoy times like this.


That was my weekend but now on to the card I have created for two challenges.


The sketch challenge from Create with Connie and Mary and the current Play Date Cafe Challenge.



Create Sketches Square-011


From the picture inspiration at the Play Date Cafe I have used Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz and and Very Vanilla.


I have used Riding Hood Red for the base of my card and I have also used some of the Botanical Gazette DSP from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue.






Stamp set: Nature Walk, Clearly for You

Card: Riding Hood Red, Old Olive Very Vanilla
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Pear Pizzazz

Accessories:  3/8” (1cm) Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, SNAIL Adhesive



I used a dauber to add a touch of Cherry Cobbler to the edges of the DSP.


I love the image of the butterfly on the DSP, they just seem to be flying in the background.


Thanks for visiting again, please come back soon.


Until next time keep creating…. Meg x

Happy Birthday

Hi everyone,


I have created a birthday card using the colour challenge from Create with Connie and Mary and the sketch layout from Sketch Frenzy Friday.


Both challenges can be seen below:

I have flipped the sketch and replaced the bow with the butterfly.
