Love my Garden

I am only 3 days late with my Spoon Full card this week ;-) Better late than never! We have the below great sketch for you to follow designed by the uber talented Camilla. There is still lots of time to play along and be in with a chance of winning the great stamp prize from our sponsor Bryony of Silly Monkey Crafts.


The gorgeous card below was created by my friend Karen for this weeks Spoon Full of Sugar challenge. Karen is our wonderful and very talented guest this week.

She has used one of the adorable Popcorn the bear stamps. I am so excited as the new Christmas popcorns will be in my store Bunny Zoe's Crafts on Monday. They are just the cutest! For a sneak at whats to come be sure to check out Jacqui's gorgeous creation here.

My card this week is using the beautiful Hanna Stamp - Love my garden. I am hosting this weeks Friday challenge over at Splitcoaststampers with the topic Distressing so be sure to come over and check it out. My Hanna is stamped in Memento ink and coloured with prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. The gorgeous papers are DCWV Green Stack. Lots of distressing using my Heidi Swapp Edge Distresser tool and also chalking the edges of my image using VersaMagic Jumbo Java chalk. The tiny buttons are from the Victorian collection. For all you button lovers I have a fantastic selection in my store.


I received the above award from sweet Didi. Thank you so much for thinking of me :-) If you haven't visited Didi's blog before you should. She is one talented youngster!


I am so excited as my Mum is coming for a flying visit tonight and with her living in Cornwall it's the first time I have seen her this year.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,
