simple snowflakes

Hi everyone!!
I have been playng with my big shot again!
I have used a memory box die and stuck some hunkydory christmas mirri card behind it.
Then I covered it with snowflake acetate-I love this stuff!!
The sentiment is a peel off and then I used the mirri card and cut out some red flakes for the inside.

I have been inspired by the sketch below:

splash birthday

Hi everyone!
It's a wonderful evening and summer is still here! and when I saw the CAS-colour and sketches sketch I knew I should use my stamp I coloured at the weekend!Thank you for this one louise van vuren
It is an Acid Drops and What Nots stamp-a freebie from a magazine then donated to me by my mum.
It's a brilliant stamp pack-so sweet and funny.
I have stamped using memento black and coloured with pro markers. The blue sea is a piece of leftovers from punching a border and the fish are from the Docrafts Ahoy There papers-I have cut them out.
I stamped the sentiment onto some Kanban card and used a spellbinder tag for it to go on. 
I think it is a summery card and I am going to make a few more!

The tag on the inside is from Kanban and I tied some cord onto it.
Thank you for looking and for follwoing my blog!

Hi everyone!
Oh it's warm here!! I'm on anew routine at work so have the end of the week off now and am just getting used to the new routine. I find with a 2 year old I am getting less and less time to myself (or should I say-to craft!). I seem to be buying more stuff than I'm using!
I have used a Spellbinders wrought iron die in red-I think it looks like a snowflake! the background papers are freebies from a magazine and DCWV, and have been matted onto black. The smaller black snowflakes are using snowflakes border from memory box (one of my new purchases!!).

This round tag is from Spellbinders and I have used a freebie papermania stamp from the latest edition of Creativity mag. I have embossed it in silver and added some checked ribbon which was in my stash.
It is all based on the sketch at freshly made sketches

red, white and blue

Hi everybody!
hope you're well!
I am on my last day being a 37 year old. I am looking forward to being spoilt tomorrow starting with buns at work! yum yum! and then ice cream in the afternoon with my wee boy and my friend and her wee girl!
I have made this card for my friend whose husband is in the RAF and they're moving back to the Uk from Denmark-can't wait!
i used a kanban card blank with a fold and cut already in it.

The image is a free digi and the tickets are from whimsey stamps. The banner is made using a stencil I got free with a mag and the papers are DCWV.
I would like to wish all Americans a Happy Independence Day-I love sharing my birthday with it!
