A Gnome

I picked up this awesome Lawn Fawn Gnome Sweet Gnome set second hand and was eager to play over the weekend. I have no idea who the recipient of this card will be, perhaps it's just me that thinks garden gnomes are cool!

The Journalling card and the happy birthday dies are both Lawn Fawn too. The gnome is coloured with Promarkers, and I used Distress Ink for the background. The papers are Simple Stories.

All Kinds of Everything

Please excuse the post title in honour of Eurovision, my second favourite TV event of the year (after Strictly Come Dancing). This is going to a bit of a catch up post as I've been awol for a couple of weeks!

We went to a fab wedding yesterday, my husband's cousin. Here's the card I made them using a Doodlebug stamp set:

They had a fun photo booth at the wedding, something I've always wanted to do. Here's me and the husband!

I've been scrapbooking recently a bit too, trying to complete my daughters age 1-2 album, which is now so heavy and doesn't close properly! I've been trying to use a stamp or a die on every layout I make as I own so many now, this one features a Mama Elephant sheep stamp and a Lawn Fawn sun die cut:

And finally a bit of new stash, because why not?!

Oh and I should also mention I was featured in Quick Cards Made Easy magazine this month and won a lovely Tonic Studios prize!

So like I said, a bit of all sorts there. Thanks for reading!

Make the Day Special May Challenge

Not wasting any time with this one, I got stuck straight into the May challenge from Make the Day Special. My favourite kind of challenge this time, a sketch!

I've used my awesome brand new Mama Elephant Cupcake Carnival stamps and banner die (this months pay day treat to myself!) plus the Mama Elephant "happy" die, Lawn Fawn Journalling Card dies and Lawn Fawn paper. And a bit of Distress Ink with a Memory Box grid mask.

Thanks for stopping by!
