I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

On a roll......another two cards!

This first card is made for challenge on Sugar Bowl Challenge #2- with very strict rules!!!. You must use 3 papers and 3 embellishments and no more!

I love the muted colours in this one!

Image: Sugar Nellie coloured with promarkers
Papers: Basic Grey "Infuse"
Oval and scallop cut on cuttlebug using nesties.
Ribbon, flower and gems from my stash.

The second card is made for Friday Sketchers Challenge #35 which is a lovely sketch layout. Loving this one as it gave me chance to use my Cricut for the flourish!

Image: Whiff of Joy coloured with promarkers
Papers: K & Company
Square and scallop square cut on cuttlebug using nesties
Pink card put thru cuttlebug in swiss dots folder
Sentiment stamp from my stamp set ( but cannot remember where from - sorry)
Flowers, brads and pearls from my stash.
