Queen Kat Designs and also one of the Lace Border stamps from the Eclectic Reasons. The stamps have been second stamped onto some SU Confetti White cardstock using black Versafine ink and matted onto Baja Breeze and Rose Red. The DS papers are from a new set of SU papers that will be available to order from April - a very pretty set along with some of the new seam binding in Rose Red. I printed the sentiment out using word on the computer and tried to add some faux stitching around the edges. The buttons came from my stash. All I need to do now is duplicate the card so that I have another one for Ian's mum!

I have opted to go with lovely spring colours, which remind me of daffodils. I've used SU's Daffodil Delight, Peach Parfait and Pumpkin Pie ink pads and SU's Flight of the Butterfly stamp set to create my card this week, along with another SU border set. The buttons are from Papermania and the ribbon is SU's Daffodil Delight taffeta ribbon - so easy to tie.

Anam Stubbington, founder of the Twisted Sketches blog and all around amazing papercrafter released her Sketches4Cards app for iPhones, iPads & iPod Touch and I was lucky enough to be asked to supply a card based on one of the sketches which can be found on the application. Below is the card I submitted - I loved playing with the sketch and was pretty happy with the end result too - more from the Ooh La La range from MME.
You can check out all the amazing (and handy) sketches in the app. There is a free version with 12 sketches, and the full version (104 sketches, + the 12 free ones) can be purchased at iTunes for 4.99.

I had the pleasure of working with Gypsy and this is one of two designs I created using this image - I'll share the other one another day. I had great fun colouring this one in (although I did notice after I'd taken the photo I'd coloured one little bit in the wrong colour - can you pick out the mistake?) The papers are 7 Gypsies and I've used a Nellies frame and some lovely lace from Kaiser, added a little bling and printed out the sentiment. Thanks for looking and I hope you like it.

The first card I'm going to show you is called Lollipop Fairy and is by the artist Samantha Nowak. I wanted it to be a bright and cheery card so opted to use the lovely MME papers from the Love Me Do range - I have so enjoyed working with both the stamp and the papers. I also wanted the sentiments to tie in with the name of the fairy hence sweet and thoughtful, which is how I think the fairy looks. These and all the other new releases will be available to buy from the Queen Kat Designs shop. Why not check out their Facebook page too.

I have opted to go with New Baby, especially as we celebrated the birth of our new grandson Logan in December and thought this was a great way to hopefully kick start my scrapbooking mojo back into action.
