Yay i managed another card today!Very happy with myself as i was having a sort out as you do and so glad i did as it inspired this card!I've made this card for my cousin whose birthday is in a couple of weeks ...but it say's brother i hear you shout lol!And that is because it is for my aunty to give him from his little sis.

For the card I have used Graffiti Edwin coloured with whispers,paper's are a mixture of dovecraft and DCWV boy stack,cardstock is coredinations,PM star brad's and alpha mania sticker's and PB sentiment in top right corner not sure you can see it as it does'nt seem to show very well in pic but it does on the card?Well thanks for stopping by! :) xx


I've made this card for two challenges which are THE SUGAR BOWL(easter or spring) and CHARISMA CARD'S(my favourite things).My favourite things at the moment are this gorgeous SN stamp called sweet n sassy and the Oval craftwork card's sentiments.If you look at past posts you'll see that ive used them in nearly all my recent card creations lol.Sorry if your getting bored of seeing them i'm waiting for some new stamps to arrive so i promise to do something different lol.

For this card i have used the new Trimcrafts paper's by Kate Knight are'nt they pretty?,cardstock is coredinations, all the paper's edge's have been distressed,ribbon was from nec can't remember which stall sorry and PM shimmer dots.

Well i hope you all have a fab weekend whatever you're doing and thanks for stopping by!xx
