Oh Happy Day!!!

Hello all, judging by the title of this post I guess you might all think that today is a special day.
Well, it is! 28 years ago today I gave birth to my firstborn so it truly is a happy day as I could not wish for a better daughter than the one I've got!!!
Plus, going out for dinner as a family later makes me smile too!!!

So, down to business.

Todays card is an image which I purchased from From the Heart Stamps and is called Whimsy Garden Fence and I love it! It's a really cute image and super easy to colour using the old faithful SN markers!

I'm entering it into the following challenges :-

From The Heart Stamps stamp of the month challenge
Penny's paper crafty challenge #176
Crafty Little Fairies - In the Garden
Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes

Oh Baby!

Morning all.
Hope you've got the bedding washed and out on the line like me!! LMAO

I struggled with making this card yesterday for the Outlawz Challenges - Saturday paper a la mode - theme FAMILY.
I just could not get the image in my head down on to the card! So, I had to walk away and finish it this morning!

I bought the digi image from  Make It Crafty - they have some really great images to purchase and easy peasy to download!

I used my Spectrum Noir markers for the image of a Geeky Couple and New Baby!

Hello all, Guess what? Yep, the washer's on and i've checked the weather forecast and I can put more washing out today! Hahahaha!
Anyhoo, onto todays challenges!

This is such a sweet Lili of the valley stamp I couldn't resist using it for my pretty card - full of flowers and there such a word? Hmmm, well, there is now.

I thought it would go well in these challenges :

The squirrel and the fox #69
The Outlawz Challenges - May Flowers
Paulaholifieldcrafts - Flower Power

And here's the little cutey!

Sick Bird!!!

Good evening all.
Here is my lovely, yet sick, birdy card for this weeks challenge at i {heart} card sketches #64 - Twist, paper piecing.

My poorly bird is coloured with Spectrum Noir markers and paper pieced with some paper which I've had in my stash since last year and haven't loved it enough to use it - but now I have and I think it worked really well here.
The pill bottle, pills, hot water bottle, thermometer and "nappy" are all paper pieced. I've added some glitter and bling for fun!

Happy 1st of May to everybody!
If you read my last post you would have noticed how much I really wanted to do some more washing today - but I can't as the rain is coming down! That fine stuff that wets you right through...

So I finished a card I started yesterday instead.

I'm entering my birdies on a fence into the challenges at
