For my Friend

Good morning.

I hope you have all had a lovely Easter break.

It has been lovely having 4 days off work, though I am going back today for a rest!
I have spent two weeks sorting through all my craft room and have got rid of stuff I have had for probably 5 years or more. I needed to because I have moved my craft room into what was our living room, which was smaller, and visa versa.  Apart from needing a carpet for our living room, I am really pleased with my decorating. My craft room, though it is looking good, is not finished, so you will have to wait for some photos. Needless to say, I can now join the Blue Peter brigade as I am now an expert in covering things with sticky back plastic and spray paint!

Anyway, the reason I am here today is for my inspiration project for Noor Design UK.

The main focus of this card is the gorgeous Grapevine Heart from Scrapiniec. This set also comes with a smaller heart if you don't want it to be the main focus of your card.

I have really enjoyed making the Foamiran flowers today. There are so many possibilities for gorgeous flowers with the dies and foam. If you are a bit nervous about making Foamiran flowers, You Tube has so many tutorials.

The antique bronze leaf swirl, bronze leaf and bronze corners add weight and depth to the card.

I hope the return to work wasn't too painful this week.

Thank you all for stopping by and for your lovely comments.

See you all soon.

A new challenge at All About Magnolia.

Good morning.

I hope you have all had a lovely Easter. I have really enjoyed having four days off work though it has been extremely busy. As some of you may know from my last blog, I have been moving my craft room into the living room and visa versa. My craft room was far bigger than our living room (how indulgent of me)! and we realised last Christmas that we needed more space when we had visitors.
I still have work to do in both rooms but I am liking what I have done so far.

I am here today with a reminder for the challenge we have at

Our theme is

All About Easter or Spring.

We are being sponsored by

The adorable Magnolia image is Tilda with Bow Knot. This has to be one of my favourite Maggies.
For the base of my card I used the Fantasy Circles die. I love the stitched border on these dies.

The flowers are all available from Noor Design UK as are most of the products used to create this card. To the bottom of the card is ruffled lace to which pearl string has been added.

I would like to enter the following challenges.

In the Pink - Pearls

Thank you all for stopping by today and for your lovely comments which are always appreciated.

See you tomorrow for another post.

A new challenge over at Marvelous Magnolia.

Good morning to you all and Happy Easter. Hope you enjoy your short holiday whatever you are doing.

We have a new challenge starting today at Marvelous Magnolia.

Our theme for the challenge is Flowers. A nice easy one today - who doesn't like adding lot of flowers.

The prize for this challenge is a Guest spot on one of our up and coming challenges.

I have used a Dutch Doobadoo bottle tag with the adorable Magnolia image Cause I Love You.

Around the bottle tag hole in the top and the image mat is the die from Marianne Designs Anja's Butterfly. I love this die.

I added the vintage mirror and pretty lace butterfly which you can see close up below. The Birthday is by Srapiniec. To finish the tag I added lots of gorgeous flowers and metal leaves, all of which can be found at the Noor Design UK shop.

Thank you all for stopping by today and for your lovely comments.
Have a lovely weekend and I will see you again soon.

Always got your back.

Good morning.
I hope you are all well and having a lovely week.

I am really looking forward to this Easter weekend because I have 5 days off work although I am going to be extremely busy.
To make more space when we have visitors, I am moving my craft room into what is now our living room and our living room into the back room which is a lot bigger. Lots and lots of furniture to move but on the plus side it made me go through all of my craft supplies and get rid of all the stuff I don't use any more.

For my card today I have used one of the oh so cute stamps from Dreamlander.
This one is called

Always got your back. Aren't they so sweet.

For the shape I used Dutch Doobadoos Shape Art A4 Fantasy.
The first mat my image has been added too is the larger die from Marianne Design Anjas Butterfly set. The two mat circles have been cut out using the Fantasy Stamp Circles die.
The beautiful papers are Pion Designs My Dearest Sophia - these are so pretty.
The two butterflies are made from the stamp and die set by Crafty Cocktail.

Above, is the lovely Sprapiniec Grapevine Heart which comes with a larger one also in the pack.

Below my flower display is made up Foamiran in Dusky Pink using the latest dies from Rosy Owl, white and pink and pink Blossoms, Rosebuds, Hyacinth and Pomegranate Apples. To the centre of the pink and white blossom I added a pearl and diamante embellishment.

Thank you all for stopping by today and for your lovely comments.

I hope you all have a fabulous Easter and if you are trying to lose some weight as I am, can resist the chocolate!

See you all soon.

Hugs Sharon. x
