Happy Easter!

 I have definitely been MIA for awhile but I have got back to the craft room this weekend to make a few things!  My health has been very varied lately so I'm finding it hard to get motivated but hopefully I can produce some more creations now.  I have played along at CTC462 this week which was to case a sketch from page 70 of the current mini catalogue.

I chose an Easter theme because of course it is Easter!  This set will be retiring at the end of the annual catalogue and I really haven't given it enough love.

This little bunny is super cute!

Here is what I have used:    

Stamps: Easter Bunny

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

Card/Paper: Bubble Bath, Basic White, Thick Basic White, Delightfully Eclectic DSP

Tools: Irresistible Blooms Dies, Stampin' Blends, Deckled Rectangles Dies, Stripes & Splatters Embossing Folder

Embellishments: Twine, Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels

The DSP, jewels and embossing folder are all retiring also, so if on your wish list don't miss out!

Happy crafting,

Happy Birthday Son!

 Today is my son's 17th birthday and we have a longstanding tradition of a Star Wars theme when it comes to his birthday.  I always try and make him a Star Wars themed card and here is what I have come up with this year.

I have downloaded a basic image and also did the font on the computer by downloading a free font in Star Wars theme.

Here is what I used:

Card/Paper: Tahitian Tide, Stargazing DSP

Tools:  Snips, Deckled Circles Dies

I hope he never stops his obsession with Star Wars! He got plenty of Star Wars Lego for both Christmas and his birthday, its taking over the house!

Happy crafting,
