Cute Card Thursday - Springtime!

The theme on Cute Card Thursday this week is
I am longing for spring but in my part of the world it is always a lot later than other places due to living in the mountains!  Still, it is a lot warmer this week than is normal so I can pretend that spring is here even with the absence of spring flowers!
I have altered a project life 6 x 4 card for my PL album.  

We are sponsored this week by Inspired by Stamping who offer a $10 gift voucher for their store to one lucky winner!

Time for WOYWW!
Some card making going on, an image to colour and a new stamp/die set which was my valentines pressie from Hubby!   I thought he chose well!
My desk is seriously cluttered just now, just be thankful that I zoomed in!  I feel a huge shake up in my craft room coming  in the near future! 
Keeping it short and sweet this week, if you want to see more desks pop on over to Julia's blog!

Cute Card Thursday - Buttons and Bows

The theme for Cute Card Thursday this week is Buttons and Bows!
I got so carried away creating this card this week I almost forgot the buttons and bows!  Can you tell they were a last minute thought?  That is the nice thing about embellishments, you can always find a place for them!
This cutie is from Whimsy Stamps, she is Sweetheart by Time for Tea. She is coloured with Prismacolor pencils.   The sentiment is also from Whimsy Stamps from a collection called Love Tiles.  Behind that I used the Whimsy Stamps Shapeology die Fancy Square Die by Raindrop Echo Designs.
We are sponsored this week by Whimsy Stamps with a prize of 5 digital stamps!
Whimsy Stamps are also holding a DT call right now! Pop on over to the Whimsy Blog for more details!

I can't believe it is Tuesday already!  I have lost a couple of days this week, was very sick Sunday and slept most of the day and Monday I stayed in quarantine so I didn't pass the bug on to the kids.  Hubby already had it and very quickly passed it onto me, very kind of him!
I am pretty much back to normal now, just not much of an appetite which is no bad thing, dropping a few pounds at this time of year!  I do prefer to do it through diet and exercise though, that bug was vicious!
I am still working on a card I am now way behind with, hoping to get this finished swiftly!
 While I was quarantined on Monday this was my workspace!  My bed.  I made good use of the time though, finished up my bunny and stuffed and stitched her up and got a good start on her knickerbockers!
Join us and share your workspace this week you can find more details over at Julia's blog!

Cute Card Thursday - Clever Cutting!

The theme for Cute Card Thursday this week is 
Clever Cutting!
Lots of fussy cutting around this image!  She is 'The Fairy' by Cathy Delanssay for Whimsy Stamps. She is coloured with Prismacolor Pencils.  Isn't she amazing?  Love the brand new images by Cathy for Whimsy Stamps!  The sentiment stamp is also by Whimsy Stamps it is part of the Fairy Tale Dreams stamp set by SC Designs. 
I can't get past working on my project life just now so decided this would make a perfect PL card.  

We are sponsored this week by Whiff of Joy who offers a stamp of the winner's choice!
Please pop over and join us, you can also get more inspiration from the rest of our fabulous Design Team!

Time once again for WOYWW!
This week just like the past few weeks Project Life is taking centre stage!    This is my 2013 album, not quite finished.  
The way I do it is to fill the protective sleeves with the photos I want to use for that week then go back and fill in the gaps with embellished cards or any photos I might have missed out. Finally I will do the journaling. 
As you can see I still have quite a few gaps in the album!  This is the fun part though where I can get creative! 
You can see the first page (the one I was working on a couple of weeks ago) of my 2014 album here!
 While enjoying the Olympics I picked up my knitting again.  Hoping this little bun will be finished by Easter!  I have actually done quite a bit more than this in the last couple of days since I took this photo! I have since finished her head so time to stuff and give her a face!
If you want to know more about WOYWW and snoop on some more workspaces pop on over to Julia's blog!

Mini Album

I made this album way back in the summer as a memento of our Whimsy Stamps trip to CHA and as a thank you to Denise for making it happen!
It appeared in the last Whimsy Stamps Inspirations magazine as part of a product review for Beacon Adhesives.  Their Zip Dry glue is my favourite adhesive for this type of project.  It is a liquid glue, holds fast and there is never any puckering of the paper!
 The stamps I used in this project are

The papers are Authentique and the embellishments are a variety of bits I already had.  The enamel brooch on the front is Bo Bunny.
