This fabulous Stamp set
So here is my card for today:
I bought this stamp especially for this event.  Don't you think it just cries out Best of British???
The stamp is so fabulous I didn't want to add too many embellishments so to enhance the British theme I added three ribbons in..... yes red, white and blue and matted the image onto a piece of navy and then red card.  So simple but I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

Ooh La La - Make it Girly!!

Hello bloggy friends.  Well, it is Monday again and that means it is time for another fabulous challenge at Ooh La La Creations.  Firstly, please let me say a big thank you for all the entries that we had for the last challenge.  Please stop by the Ooh La La Challenge Blog to see who our lucky winners were.  Remember, there is no Random Org here, the Design Team take it in turns to pick their favourite and two runners up - so if you won it's because we loved your creation!!

So, onto the next challenge and this time it is:
MAKE IT GIRLY!
Well now, what could be simpler than making a girly project eh??
Here is the card I made for this challenge:
I have used images,DP and embellishments from the new Fairies and Blooms CD which you can buy here.  All the extra embellishments are from my stash.
For those of you who watch Create and Craft you may well have seen this featured on the OLL spot for the Fairies and Blooms CD that Hayley West does.  I was really chuffed to see Leoni playing with my neverending card - she said she loved it and could play with it for hours!!! Fame at last!! LOL
So here are some more pics showing the different views.



This was the first neverending card I had made and I have to say it was a challenge.
Apart from anything else I think I made it a wee bit too big but never mind at least it worked which was an achievement in itself!! LOL

Please remember to stop by the rest of the Design Team and see their fabulous creations (links on the DT tab at the top of this page).  They have all worked really hard to offer you some inspiration, so please remember to leave them some love if you pay a visit.

So today I have made a card using a Sarah Kay image and coloured it with my Flexmarkers and Promarkers, and here it is:
I have used papers from a Basic Grey pad called Sweet Threads.
I have used a mixture of soft peaches, lemons and greens for my colours to match the papers.
The sentiment is a die cut sentiment from a full sheet and I have used Distress Inks to colour the background which was white.  The beautiful orange ribbon (which is also at the bottom of the card) is one of the new Spring range from Crafty Ribbons.
The flowers are a mix from my stash and Wild Orchid.
Remember to come by tomorrow and see what I've got for you then.
