I am a bit late in getting my post out for you all to read tonight, I not long ago arrived home after a very long day at doctors…so I am racing now to get this out to you for you to read and hopefully gain some inspiration :)
Today is day 2 of the new release at La-La Land, we will be sharing loads of creations for you all to view this week and hopefully you are all aware that the new goodies you can finally purchase HERE..
I chose to create a card using Luka with Kite, he is so adorable, so I wanted him to be the feature, just adding a circle feature at the base, cutting the circle pattern paper in half and adhering to the card to create hills as if he were running through them, flying his kite..the die I wanted featured on the card was also from the new release called Whimsical Tree…
I hope you will all pop on over to the Blog to see the rest of the inspiration and absolutely amazing creations..
I am off to have a great big cold drink and sit and unwind after the days events..
I am sharing a new Kit and the one I chose to work with was the cute little Birdhouse…
I decided instead of applying pattern paper I would paint the little birdhouse in white and grey, white for the roof and birdhouse opening, plus the stand in which it stood on, the grey was for the outside of the house walls…
I then die cut some of the new dies from this release, the tree out of some green card stock, this die of course is called Whimsical Tree, very fitting don’t you think? The other die cuts were out of a woodgrain texture card stock, these dies are also new release ones called, Picket Fence and Random Flags Banner..
I added the fence along the front part of the stand, along with the tree and the banner was adhered to the birdhouse itself..
Finishing off of course with a cute new Marci, called Ladybug Marci, isn’t she just adorable…all coloured up in copics and added to the front of the picket fence..
To view all the new release I have a few pictures below for you to do just that…
Don’t forget to pop on over to the blog to see what other creations the Monday girls have created using the new release..
I will be back tomorrow with a card share and of course a new image too..
I do hope Easter Bunny left you a mound of chocolate :)
I am hopping in here quickly before spending the day with family to share with you all not 1 card but 2 that I created and will be given to family today..
If you are here for the blog hop for A Flair for Buttons, just see the post below :)
This first one I used the cute little stamp called Poppy from Purple Onion Designs, colouring her in and adding her to some pattern paper from My Minds Eye, stamping a sentiment from Jane’s Doodles and finally adding this to a background die cut from My Favorite Thins, Floral Fusion Cover Plate (gotta say that I am in love with this die, it is just that pretty and detailed)..
My next card, I created using Jane’s Doodles stamp set called Easter Time…that bunny is so darn sweet and I decided to colour using the no line colouring, well there abouts, it ended up looking like that once I stamped it out in grey ink and when I coloured with grey tones it practically had no lines visible :)
I added some pattern paper, twine, some die cut grass and punched out clouds along with a sentiment to complete..super cute I think..
Right, time for me to go wrap up some small gifts and go and enjoy our day!
Happy Easter to you all once again, may time with family and friends be an enjoyable one and if you are traveling, please be safe..
I am here today to join in a fun blog hop with the team at A Flair for Buttons, if you have never seen these types of flair then you need to do just that, they are absolutely gorgeous, you can check them all out HERE..
You should have arrived from the wonderful blog of Michelle Hernandez, if not I will have a list of peeps in this blog hop at the bottom of this post :)
I created 2 creations for you to feast your eyes on incorporating loads of new goodies new to my craft room..
This first one I went a little mixed media, stamping out a Prima Doll, colouring her skin and hair and paper piecing (LOVE! these dolls, totally inspired to purchase seeing Stephanie Klauck create with them) I added her to a piece of card stock that I added modeling paste to a MFT stencil, drying off and applying distress paints and distress ink..
Completing this by adding twine behind the Flair, that was from Lovely Words 10 and some Tim Holtz tissue tape down one side..
It was so fun to create this creation and yet still keeping my simple style..
Speaking of simple style, how about a card…
This next project, I stamped out the large hello sentiment from Amy Yingling’s, With Love and Thanks with Memento Luxe, Gray Flannel, adding Perfect Pearl, Pearl to the sentiment before it dried (needing to be careful not to smear the ink)..
Not a great photo but you get to see the shine of the Perfect Pearls to the sentiment..
Of course it could not be complete without a little pattern paper or an addition of a die cut from Simon Says Stamp and my go to Butterfly that I added the Capture Life 1 flair to the centre..

I trust you have all had a wonderful day, as Darryl and I have had…
Hobbling into Mum’s house we sat to share with loads of family beautiful fish some of which Darryl had caught in the river and loads of gorgeous yummy salad..
It was such a relaxing day and good for the soul to be with family, having lots of laughs and catch up time..
Since having my leg out of action, there has been lots of sitting doing practically nothing, so the crafty side of things has been quite put to the side, but tonight I was itching to craft, so I did pop in there to do just that, but made sure to sit at the table to do so :) but it felt so good!
Getting back to basics with crafting and not having to think about things is a great change, so I decided to not only follow along with some sketches that MFT have provided, but also create with the Colour Palette Challenge…
I have to say that this colour palette was a challenge for me..I found the green was the curve ball in my creating LOL and I am still not 100% sure about this creation, but fun to try and stretch me as an artist..
I did want to use one of my latest products that have hit the craft room, which was the Hybrid Camellia Flower die and it is so pretty to use, I am sure I will be back purchasing more of these similar dies, I also got to finally get around to using more of the Simon Says Stamp card stock and ooh pure yumminess..
I am choosing to try and do a wee little more crafting this weekend and yes sitting at the table to do so :)
I do hope that you enjoy your time with family and friends today and if you are traveling to visit, please be safe!
