Floral Alphabet...

Hello everyone, are you having a nice weekend? 

Here are a few more photos from amazing Iceland...


I was away when we started sneaky peeks for the fab LOTV spring release so didn't get chance to make what I wanted. They are all SO adorable and I can't wait to get more done but for now I used the pretty new flower alphabet for these 2 cards...

Hope you like them, the full alphabet is available in rubber and digi

The papers on the first card are Raspberry Road 'family ties' and the others are discontinued LOTV (sorry, I'm just using them up)


I've been sorting and having a clear out of my craft stash so if any of you didn't see my group on Facebook and would like a peek then here is the link. I'm not good at parting with things, I'm taking pics of items I haven't looked at in a year and still thinking oooh I might use that!

Thanks so much for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your weekend

Good morning crafty friends...
well another week has whizzed by in a flash!

February and March are busy for me with family birthdays and anniversaries etc so always pass quickly. I had a lovely birthday, Keith was working so I spent the day with my Mum and Sister in law and then Keith and I went for a meal last night

Lots of birthdays always mean too much eating and drinking though, we're going to Italy in May and it will be here before I know it so I need to start losing a few pounds before it's too late as my clothes are all too tight!


The latest challenge at AYLI is all about layers, I tend to use lots of layers on my cards as I find one layer/CAS very difficult
I love using Polkadoodles at the moment, this is an image from Fuzzy Puffs and the digikit is in the Horace and Boo collection…

I like fussy cutting so adding all the extra elements is fun for me and I enjoy building up the layers

As always there is lots of fab inspiration from the team, and you can find all the details for entering the challenge here


I don't usually enter challenges but I know Polkadoodles host a couple of nice ones so I've entered this card


Someone mentioned having problems leaving me a comment, has anyone else found the same? 
I love reading and appreciate all your comments so please do let me know because I need to see if there is a problem 

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a lovely weekend everyone

Mama Makes

Good evening, hope you're all having a nice weekend

I went to the Harrogate Stamperama show this morning but was disappointed. I queued for 20 minutes to get in and it was a small room with too many people. It was heaving, you couldn't move, couldn't see anything, just got carried along in the sea of people.
I like my personal space and with the hot flushes I'm having it was just unbearable so I bought a couple of Studio Light stamps and came home.
Sadly I think the shows have had their day, there weren't many exhibitors and there wasn't anything you can't find online cheaper.
Couldn't even get in the café for a cuppa, I counted 43 people in the line!


Quick post from me tonight to let you know our Loti is on Hochanda in the morning at 10am with some new Spring floral stamps

They're a bit different and very versatile. The sentiments are Mama Makes too (apart from the Thinking of You which is MFT)
All the sets are available from the Mama Makes website or from Hochanda tomorrow


Thanks for stopping by, I'll be back with a couple of posts next week for AYLI and new LOTV so I'll share some more piccies from Iceland

Enjoy the rest of your weekend
