It’s a lovely sunny day here in Lincoln today. The spring flowers are already out and I have bought two lovely bunches of bright and cheery daffodils for the house.
I thought this was a great time to share this thank you card with you.
The measurements are as follows:
Standard A6 Melon Mambo cardbase
Whisper White Mat 14.35cm x 10cm
Melon Mambo strip 10cm x 2.5cm
Whisper White strip 9.5cm x 2cm
I love this card as its so bright and happy. I have to say that I am not normally a pink type of girl but Melon Mambo is one of my favourite colours along with Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana. What are your favourite colours? I would love it if you left me a comment and let me know.
As usual I have a video of the card which I will link below with the supply list.
Hope you are able to enjoy some sun and flowers wherever you are.
We have been lucky in Lincoln, all the snow from the last few weeks missed us. We had a light dusting but nothing like last year. I am very pleased as was in no mood to be snowed in again. Life has been busy has usual. I’ve been busy sorting out my car. She is now serviced and road tax and insurance paid. I am so pleased with my insurance as I’ve managed to save about £500 on it compared to last year.
I have a cute project to share with you today. I find these little metal tins online and thought they would make a lovely treat tin. They are big enough to hold a good amount of skittles or smarties.
The gingham gala paper measures 5.5cm x 4cm. I do love this set of designer series paper (DSP) It is a lovely mixture of pastel colours and makes me think of spring and all it’s joys.
The ribbon was from Sale-a-bration but is sady sold out now. You could use a number of other ribbons from the annual catalogue or dye a whisper white ribbon with a reinker. Let me know if you what to know how and I will make a video.

I have a lovely watercoloured card to share with you today. I got into crafting through watercolour painting and it is still close to my heart. I find it so soothing and calm to sit and paint or colour in.
This set uses a free sale-a-bration set called By the Bay. Sale-a-bration is one of the biggest promotion in the Stampin’ Up! year. For every £45.00 you are able to choose a free item from the Sale-a-bration catalogue.
The dimensions of the card are:
Standard A6 cardbase – thick whisper white
Balmy blue mat – 14.35cm x 10cm
Pacific Point – 10cm x 7cm
Shimmery White – 9.5cm x 6.5cm
I love the combinations of blue in this card. What do you think? Which is your favourite item from sale-a-bration.
I have a cute and bright card to share with you today on this dark gloomy day in Lincoln. I love bright colours in the middle of winter as they remind me of sunshine and summer.
This card uses the Bee Thankful stamp set and yes it is all one stamp. The measurements are:
Standard A6 Thick Whisper White Cardbase
Pumpkin Pie Matt 10cm x 14.35cm
Whisper White 8cm x 10cm
The card is coloured in using the Stampin’ Blend alcohol markers. I love these as they make shading a doddle. I love colouring in, I find it so relaxing. I can just sit and let my worries float away as I colour in.
I adore the sentiment on this card as I have many things to be thankful for and I like to remind myself how lucky I really am.
I hope you like the card and thank you for taking the time to stop by.
I am sorry I’ve been AWOL for so long, unfortunately my health hasn’t been at its best but hopefully I am on the right road now.
I have a cute birthday card to share with you today that I actually made a few months ago but never got to publish the video. It’s using the Playful Pals stamp set which I absolutely love. I have used the image of the otter but you could quite easily one of the other cute little critters as well. This set is perfect for colouring and I have used the stampin blends alcohol markers to colour my image. They would equally as good using the watercolour pencils as well.
I am going to try and post videos now three times a week on my YouTube channel so please subscribe.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you all had an amazing Christmas and all the best for the New Year.

I have a quick and easy card for you today showcasing the new Eastern Palace Suite of products. I love how easy Stampin’ Up! make it to create cards with all their wonderful coordination.
I had a lovely day today. We found a wonderful nursery just north of us. They had lots of lovely veggie plants as well as strawberries and huge variety of other bedding plants. They also have a great tea room that serves hot food as well. I got some herbs as well Fuschias and geraniums.
I have a cute congratulations card to share with you today. I wasn’t sure how I was going to use the stickers in the Eastern Palace Suite but I am growing to like them as accents on card. I love how the gold embossing coordinates with the gold foil sheet and stickers.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful bank holiday weekend. We were so lucky to have beautiful sun her last week and the garden is looking great. I have built two mini greenhouses and am starting to sew some lettuces to start off in there and then bring out. The tomatoes are growing well and geraniums are starting to flower.
I have a one sheet wonder bag today for you. This is made from one sheet of 12 x 12 designer series paper. There is no cutting involved so its a a very easy bag for a newbie to make. The colour used is one of our new in colours “Fresh Fig”.
