I was honoured to receive this award from Margaret.
I'm supposed to tell you 8 things you may not know about me and pass it on to 8 bloggers. I would like to pass this on to my lovely teamies at Winter Wonderland for being such a great team to work with. I know that's 10, not 8, but rule are meant to be broken sometimes. I need to get ready soon as I am meeting my good friend Lynsey for coffee at lunchtime and have to pop into Hobbycraft first so don't have time to do the 8 things at the moment.

Papers are Papermania capsule and FF pink parfait. I have so far kept my promise to myself not to buy any papers until my stock has gone down some more. How long will this last I wonder?

We bought a new printer yesterday so once that is set up I can print wirelessly again. I also just found out that I won the Birthday challenge at I love Promarkers so thanks girls as it is a fantastic prize of 2 WOJ stamps, some Promarkers and a wallet and some pins.

I bought some squares of these fairies at Hobbycrafts last year as the stamps weren't out until January. This is the last square of this little poppet so next time I will be able to use the stamp. Flowers are Prima with punched fern leaves from pearlised card from Crafter's Companion. You may have seen this card on Create and Craft with the SWALK launch. It really is gorgeous. I would also like to enter this into the challenge of Spring - flowers everywhere at Bunny Zoe's Crafts.
What a beautiful day it's been today. I don't like to complain but I had a job to take a photo of this card as the sun was shining. I've been very busy with DT work today once the washing and ironing was done but I did manage to get this card made as well. I used Dawny P's fab sketch at Lili of the Valley, using the sketch on both the front and bottom of the easel card. Papers are Papercellar Victorian Burgundy.

My second card features one of my favourite Pollycraft images which I just love for Anniversary cards. I have gone for a very different colour scheme, picking up the colours from the beautiful BG Wisteria papers. I added a heart doiley which I chalked to bring down the whiteness. Hearts were die cut with a Nestie and embossed with swiss dots.
