Sugar bowl xx

Good afternoon lovely bloggers, hope your all feeling happy today?? I'm buzzing for some reason but not complaining hee!!
Before I talk about my wee card for the Sugar Bowl Challenge, I wondered if any of you have seen the new Ribena advert?? OMG its so funky, love that wee tune ......... been stuck in my head since I 1st heard it "Oh the blowing of the breeze...." sorry its just stuck!! If you've not heard it yet check it HERE, it'll defo cheer you up!!
So here's my little card made using Tiet's sketch over on the Sugar Bowl challenge, its a funky wee sketch so give it a go and you can win some very sweet sugar!! Also they want you to use your punches for this, here's mine

I've used my card stock, again from the Papermill at Livingston. I dug out my Laura Ashley papers that I've had for a while plus some 12x12 green card stock to back the papers onto! I also used my fave stamp at the mo A Good Book that my gorjuss Ellie got me, coloured with my promarkers! I used my Martha Stewart punches and then punched out some flowers and leaves to finish my wee card!

Hope you like my wee card, I love the paler colours for a wee change! And I know I've been using this stamp a lot but shes just the cutest hee!

Thanks for stopping by remember and leave a comment so I knew you've been

Double the not so trouble! xxx

Afternoon all, hope you're all well in blogland and beyond??
I'm good just busy, sunroom is totally taking shape now! Hopefully it'll be finished by next week then just have to wait on our corner suite to get delivered, up to 12 weeks so hopefully not to long ......... hmm we'll see!! Oh, how hard is it to find wallpaper?? Is it just me or are there hardly any places?? Really just B&Q and Homebase near us and not alota choice! Got something after 2 weeks of looking ........... not saying tho hee ....... just have to wait for the finished pics hee!!
Okay enough of my jabbering, here's two wee cards my Mother-in-Law asked me to do for her two friends up coming "big" birthdays hee! She loved her Mothers Day card I made and wanted them to be the same! So here's what I've made

I used some basic card stock from Papermill store in Livingston and my fab new paper pack from K&Co, Tim Coffey Blossomwood collection(you can find here). I also used my Oriental Woodware stamps coloured with promarkers then aged with brown ink! Everything else is from my stash including the fab flowers!

Hope you like them?I sure loved making them, anything Oriental I just love! Oh and it has butterflies on it so gotta just love it!!
Thanks for stopping by and having a look and listening to my wee moans
