A card and some Easter boxes

I made this card using an image very kindly sent to me by Sarah.
I coloured in the image using Stampin' Up! inkpads and blending brush.
I also used Pretty in Pink ink and cardstock, some Stampin' Up! DSP and a sentiment from the level 1 Best Yet Hostess set.

I've also been having a play making some Easter boxes using round, square and scallop punches.
Stamp sets used: Loads of love accessories, One of a Kind, Seeing Spots, Carte Postale and Botanical Blooms.
The larger box has a bag of mini eggs in it- just can't be seen due to the camera angle.(No, I haven't eaten them...........yet!) :-)
It's been much milder today but very dull and dark, so sorry about the photo quality.

A notebook for my sister

This is a little notebook that I made for my sister last year. She was just beginning to get really
interested in stamping and inks etc, and it's a bit mind-boggling at first with all the different kinds of inks available and various techniques, so I thought a notebook might help.
Here are pictures of just some of the pages.

Materials used:

Papers, tags and hardware: 7 gypsies
Stamps: 7 gypsies, elusive images, clarity stamps, crafty individuals
Chipboard swirl: Maya Road
Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

Thanks for looking x

Just decided to make some Valentine Cards this weekend.
No I don't intend sending them all (but wouldn't it be exciting if I did!) - may take some to work next week.

A few Sale-a-Bration Cards

All made with the Botanical Blooms set from the Sale-a-Bration promotion.

First card uses Frames with a Flourish and a Hero Arts Sentiment too.

Second Card also uses Circle of Friendship, Circle punch, Scallop circle punch and Scallop edge punch.

Well I don't know about you but I'm totally fed up of looking out and seeing snow now. Mind you I don't like the stuff anyway, even when it first falls - roll on Spring!

Chocolate - but not as we know it.

Saw these bars of chocolate today and I just had to buy them because they made me giggle. I don't normally buy chocolate of course (stop sniggering at the back there!) but I wanted to share them with you.
Click on the pictures to read the descriptions more easily.
Do you think my doctor will give me a prescription?

P.S. For more fun chocolate see Bridgette's blog

Altered Art

I love Altered Art and last October I was lucky enough to go on a weekend scrapbooking retreat(Luxurious Angels - sadly none planned for this year) Before the weekend began we were challenged to do two things:

1. Alter a pair of slippers (for the first evening "ice-breaker" pyjama party).
2. Create a name badge.

So here are my efforts.

I really enjoyed the retreat, it was great, we had some really good classes and I met some lovely people.
