SUO Cute Critters for the Challenge!!!

Isn't this little fellow totally adorable?  He is my card for the challenge this week for SUO.

I'm on the team at SUO!

We are featuring Cute Critters - and I have to admit, this was a CHALLENGE for me!!  So I used the wonderful resources of Pinterest and found a wonderful idea HERE that I have CASED (Copy and Selectively Edited) for our challenge.

For my bird I've used Balloon Celebration as my stamp set - for the clouds and greeting.  And the punches I've used are:  bird builder; tree builder; large oval;  3/4" circle; 1 1/4" circle; and blossom bunch.  You could also add some fun balloons to this card too using our new balloon punch!!

I hope you've been inspired and have fun joining our challenge this week!!

Easter Inspiration on Caseing the Catty #71

Hello again to our Sunday Night Blog Hop!!  And this week, we are sharing some Easter Inspiration with you!!

For this challenge, we are using any inspiration from our Annual Catalogue, Occasions Catalogue or the Sale-a-bration Catalogue to Case and Share Everything from a project!!


This year, for Easter, I've chosen to go with my Christian beliefs and make some thank you gifts for my dear friends in my Bible Study group, and I've used this little tag and gift bag as my inspiration.

I've swapped in the butterfly (symbolising New Life which is the central theme of Easter) instead of the Rose, and I've added in some crumb cake striped ribbon with the bakers twine embellishment at the top of the tag.

My darling husband found some gorgeous little gardening buckets that I'm giving as a gift with the tags expressing my gratitude to my friends.

I hope you've been inspired, and that you will continue to enjoy the wonderful creations from the whole team as you hop along through all our fantastic Easter projects!!


And for the fun challenge loving friends among you, simply make your creation and add it in to our monthly challenge using the link at the following blog post!!

A Nice Cuppa for FMS #228

My dear friend loves tea, so I've made this cute little card for her to cheer her up - and it works perfectly with the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches this week!!

Make sure you head over and see all the amazing projects from the design team!!  Just click on the graphic to see their blog.

I've used A Nice Cuppa stamp set and the coordinating Cups and Kettle framelits with Bemuda Bay and some Pool Party card stock in the background.  I've also actually used a glassine sheet over the top of the Writing Notes background stamp - but it's a bit tricky to see in the photo!!
I hope you like my card anyway!!

Memories in the Making - Endless Summer

I thought you might like to see what I've been up to lately!!

I recently organised a Project Life class using this kit - Memories in the Making.

It coordinates with the Sale-a-bration Project Life cards - Memories in the Making specialty cards.

I didn't have many takers for my class, but I certainly totally loved putting together this album - lots of photos from January and February 2016.  

The things I really really LOVE about the Project Life kits are the Accessory kits - they are just so adorable and easy to use!!

And Project Life is really helping me to get better with my journalling 

sometimes, I'm not sure what to say, but when I flip through my album and pretend I'm telling someone about the photos, it helps me work out what to write!!

Have fun flipping through my pages, 

and I hope you are inspired too!!

Keep your eyes peeled for my next Project Life class (when the new catalogue launches in June)
