I like two thirds of my card but I've now decided that I don't like the colourful strip down the side, its well and truly stuck including the ribbon so there is now way I can do anything about it.
May have to do it again with a white panel, love the Hearts die which is a Memory box die with an added heart, the join hidden under the pearl
I stamped the Believe using Simon Says Stamps die and stamp set, I've used it before in scrapbooking.
The gorgeous ballerina is from Mo Manning called Ballet-Pratice she is a bit fiddly to layer but there aren't two many to do.

I finally got my hand on Simon Says Stamp Circle of Leaves, they kept getting sold out. I was just playing with the die to see how it cut when I decided to see if I could using one of Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle afterwards and this how my centre turned out. I cut it again so I could layer the leaves with some Foam Squares, I had to cut them down to fit and I used Zig Glue Pen to stick down the stems.
My circle needed a mat to go on and this point I knew I was going for an all white card especially has I had used a textured card. I used the Simon Say Stamps Stitched Rectangle for a finished touch round the mat.
But I needed something more I cute the Circle of Leaves again to make matching leaves and used the Simon Says Stamp Hydrangea dies, just the two smallest ones. They need some centres so I used the Simon Says Stamp Mini Flowers and Leaves.
To finish I needed a sentiment, technically its going to be a get well card but there could be further treatment and I felt this sentiment I found on the Ranunculus Stamp set and it fitted inside one of the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Banners.
Finally a pearl for each flower to finish.
You have until Wed 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in

We are having an envelope theme on Everybody Art Challenge. Now I was sure what was meant by this challenge but time wasn't going to allow me to actually make a envelope nor did I want the stress in making one. So I chose a good quality envelope and decided to decorate it with stamps.
First I had to make some masks for the flowers so that they could overlap, I made five in the end. The foliage and flower stamp are both Stampin Up but could be retired, I know the foliage one is.
I stamped the flowers first and then the foliage moving the masks as I went. I think I may have gone a bit mad but it was quite fun to do.
I decided to do the back, in hindsight I think this is how I should of stamped the front.
Do pop over and check on the team and hope you can join us this week. Meanwhile we off to do a bit of shopping today, I need more white card for stamping my images, stuffing for crochet toys

Apologies for the crooked photo, this is after I straighten it! Anyway I'm pleased I found the photo on the camera, thought I had sent it without photographing it.
The only problem it was while ago since I made I now having to rack my brain to work out what I used so here goes. First the house is Stamping Up, stripy paper - no idea, the stitched rectangle and fishtail banner both from Simon Says Stamp. Oh the star is too but the sentiment is Altenew on their succulents stamp set.

Yes even my scrapbooking is going clean and simple, well maybe not clean but definitely simple. I'm still doing 2014 photos and there are loads and they need to be quick. The good thing is I have several made up as kits and I think I'm only stuck on December because my Christmas papers are in another box.
So this is at Mason's first Birthday where she order bouncing castle with a ball play pen, for some reason my BIL thought about picking the balls on the lawn. Little did the bigger kids know what he was about to do with them.
Clouds and punched dots to decorate, wish I knew what I did with the punch but I haven't seen it since. The title was a bit tricky took a while to think of one but it works a treat.

Oops done it again forgot to schedule my post for the Mid Month reminder for Penny Black Saturday Challenge of Try or Use something new.
I decided to use the new Snowy die which I have had for quite a while but I know I haven't used it because the snowflakes were still attached in the middle of the main die. My Snowy stamp is an old one so I did wonder whether Penny Black may have altered him slightly in the newer stamps but he fitted perfectly.
The idea of have a neat white border round the image is that he shows up better over patterned paper but I decided to make a square where the bottom half is made with snow using Simon Says Stamps Slopes and Hills die.
I cut the Lawn Fawn square paper with a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Square then I used it again on my hills and slopes. I prefer doing this way just in case I need to lengthen the square to make a rectangle. Yes that is my favourite Christmas Sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Christmas Toys still not tired of it yet.

Here you can see all the different colours of my Charlotte Cal, I have now crochet the border but I need to find a large space to show it off in its entirety. The wool Stylecraft Special DK, I have a few little ball of each colour left but I plan to make some tiny squares that eventually put together when I enough. I've also got to find another blanket to make.
Excuse my naked Weebee, I recently add a bun to her hair but its make a head a bit heavy. Some crocheters have sewn a nose which I was going to do but I forgot and stitched on the hair cap and it really needed doing before them.
Just need to get round to making some clothes.
