Tilda with Curly Hair!

Good Afternoon!
Today I have a normal card to share with you all, my Magnolia Spring Kit arrived yesterday and due to being too tired I finally got the chance to have a play with it today!
It was so hard to decide which to use first but in the end I decided to go for this one, I'm not sure of her real name so at the moment I am calling her Tilda with Curly Hair! lol The sentiment is also from the kit.

This card fits into the Challenges at:

BUNNY ZOES CRAFTS - SPRING ... FLOWERS EVERYWHERE!
TOP TIP TUESDAY - INSERTS & BLING IT ON


I have only used 3 Flowers on this card as I felt it didn't as many as I usually use on my cards.



I have added a photo of the inside, as most of you know I decorate the insides each time but don't really photograph it anymore!


RECIPE:
Magnolia Spring Kit 2011
Magnolia Paper
Cuttlebug 'Snow' Embossing Folder
Flowers by Magnolia & Wild Orchid Crafts
Vanilla Dew Drops, Ribbon, Shimmer Spray & Twinklets from Stash

PBSC - Cards For Men!

Good Morning!
This week at PBSC we want to see you make some Cards for Men!
I'd been sent some copies of this PB Stamp and I thought it'd work great for this Challenge, I've only got 1 more copy left though so I may end up having to buy the stamp! lol

This card fits the Challenges at:

CUTE CARD THURSDAY - SHINY CARDS
(I always use 3D Gloss on my Images & Sprays / Twinklets on my Flowers)


Seeing the theme is for a Male I decided not to use Flowers on this card, trust me it was hard! lol Instead I used my MS Branch punch as I thought it'd seem more masculine.


RECIPE:
PB Stamp
Core'dinations Cardstock
Cuttlebug 'Snow' & 'Swiss Dots' Embossing Folders
MS Branch Punch & A Border Punch
Buttons, Ribbon & Dew Drops from Stash

Thanks for Popping By,

Creative Inspirations - Plain & Simple!

Good Morning!
Where has everybody gone recently?
I've noticed there has been hardly anybody around since mid last week, I do hope my creations haven't gone down-hill lol

This week at CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS our theme is Plain & Simple! This means you can only use up to 2 Design Papers & up to 4 of each type of Embellishment.
I really am not keen on my card, it looked good in my mind but it just hasn't turned out right, ah well you win some you lose some I guess! lol

This card fits the Challenges at:

BUNNY ZOES CRAFTS - SPRING ... FLOWERS EVERYWHERE!
PAPERTAKE WEEKLY - PUTTING ON THE GLITZ



Unfortunately it doesn't show very well in this picture but I have used the Antique Linen Distress ink on the Birthday stamp as it is the same shade as some flecks in the Design Paper.


RECIPE:
PB Stamp
Sentiment from Happy Daze
Basic Grey Paper
Cuttlebug 'Snow' Embossing Folder
Flowers by Prima
Ribbon, Twinklets & Dew Drops from Stash
