what a week!!!!!! school has been crazy, our computer system is down with a virus so it has been back to the old style of teaching and sadly the kids have not taken to it very well>>> what did we do before computers? so just to unwind i made a card which i am posting on the magnolia vs stampavie challenge. i love the magnolia stamps i think they are just adorable, and i thought i would use my eclipse tape (which i have had for ages) to have tilda sitting on a table. i like the image i hope you do too. thanks for dropping by xx

this year seems to be when quite a few people have special birthdays in our family. i have four that reach "21" and this card is for the first of them. my faithful edwin stamp is once again dressed in west ham colours, as my most of my family are ardent "hammers fans" the old claret and blue is used once again!! the lay out of the card is a challenge from sketch saturday. keep on crafting (why do i have to work? it would so much easier to make cards all day) x

spring is sprung.

slowly but surely i am getting back into the swing with my card making. this stamp is so pretty and just cheers me up to know that the lighter nights are on their way and hopefully better weather. the stamp is one of my lovely birthday pressies i recieved from a very thoughtful friend. she is a sugar nellie stamp called spring is sprung. the theme for the cute card thursday challenge is signs of spring so i thought the lamb and the lively colour scheme would be ideal. thanks for stopping by x
