Last card for the Mamas

Good morning everyone,

Today, I am sharing my last card at a DT member for Card Makin' Mamas. I've had a blast being part of their lovely team, but am now looking for new opportunities and challenges. Nothing lined up yet, just seeing where my crafting takes me :) I really want to thank Jess for giving me my first break in a DT, it was fun but all good things come to an end. So, my last challenge with CMM is an inspiration photo challenge, a lovely pastel 4-tiered cake. I've use the colours and the flower theme for my card, what will you be inspired by?

* Tickled Pink Digi (Easter Pinkette Daisy August), coloured with Promarkers and Spectrum Noirs
* First Edition Spring Feast DP
* Eline Vintage Sentiment Stamp
* Flowers, brads, plain papers and flower gems from my stash

* Aud Sentiments (Anything Goes)
* Scrap it with a Song (Spring Fever)
* Moving Along with the Times (Gardening or Flowers)

Sugar & Spice and All Things Nice

Hi everyone!

Wow, I can't believe I haven't posted for so long, it's a busy period at work and we had my parents over for the Easter weekend, so not much crafty time I'm afraid. But I have a couple of new cards to show you, so I will be posting more often this week I hope! Talking of which, Card Makin' Mamas new challenge starts today, the theme is "MAKE IT GIRLY". That isn't the hardest of challenges is it? I went all out with pink, glitter, butterflies, flowers.......I tried to make it as girly as possible! I also framed the vintage picture with some matt silver mirror board and aged it, so it really looks like an old photo. Well, I think it does anyway :) Come on and join us! We also have a DT call, our DT coordinator Jess is looking for some more crafty talent, so if you fancy it come and apply. She'd love to see your work :)

* Studio Light image (used matt silver mirror board and Distress Ink to age it)
