Happy Easter!

Hi Everyone


No card from me today but just wanted to wish you all a Happy Easter. 

I apologise for not being around much at the moment.  Lots of stuff happening at home which I will tell you about another time but just means I can't spend much time in my craft room and popping round to see you all!

Having said that, I will be back tomorrow with two cards, so I will see you then!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Love and Hugs

Good Afternoon Everyone

I hope your weekend is going well. I am feeling depressed as its my first day back to work tomorrow after my holiday :-(  I had a wonderful time and the weather was a LOT warmer than it is here!!  Can you believe this weather??!!  

Anyway, not going to think about that. I am going to snuggle up warm and watch a movie this afternoon.  Before I do that I wanted to share a card I made earlier using a pre-coloured image from the Hobby House:




She is of course an image from Wee Stamps called Hopeful and she is from a set of pre-coloured images from Hobby House here.  I have had these a while and really love the colour combination.  I have used my favourite of all time papers - Maja Designs and this set is Vintage Summer Basics.  I have used my new memory box precious hearts die.  The flowers and pearl swirls are also from the Hobby House.  There are a few more flowers on this than I would normally use, do you think they look ok?!

OK that's it for me today.  Going to settle down to watch my movie, and then roast beef dinner later!! YUMMY!!!  May also look at hotels to book for my next holiday!!

Whatever you are doing have fun and stay warm!

Love and Hugs

Sweet Sundae - Digi Bells!

Hi Everyone

Another scheduled post.  I hope you are all well.

Today I am sharing a card for the Digi Bells Blog using another gorgeous digi image from Elisabeth Bell.  The image I am using today is Sweet Sundae.  Here is my card:



 

I have coloured her with copics and used papers from Echo Park - Everyday Eclectic.  The dies are La La Land Heart Banner and a Magnolia Heart border die.  The sentiment is from Stampavie called Sweet Wishes which I thought was a perfect sentiment for the image.  

I hope you are like her!  Do check out the Digi Bells blog for more daily inspiration.  Also check out our facebook page (link in my sidebar)!

Wee Bunnies!

Good Morning Everyone!

Yippee, its the weekend.  Hope you have lots of lovely things planned.  I have a busy day ahead so was up and about early this morning!  

I had the urge to make a spring time card the other day.  I think because the weather is so cold and grey I wanted to get the feel of spring from somewhere!  I have used a pre-coloured topper from Sylvia Zet which is called Suzi with Bunny which you can get from the Hobby House here

Here is my card:





I love these pre-coloured toppers from Hobby House, and they have loads to chose from with some of my favourite images!  I cut her out and added some glamour dust to bling her up a bit.  The paper is from Nitwits and is called Brumlebury Too.  I have used my new Die-namics Button Border die which I have been itching to use!!  The flowers and swirl pearls are also from Hobby House too.

The Hobby House are starting their own challenge blog soon, can't wait!  

Right, I had better get on!  Have a great day and I will see you soon.

Love and Hugs

Stylish Audrey!

Good Afternoon Everyone!

How is your Saturday going?  The sun is shining here although still a bit chilly!  I have plans to do a major sort out in my bedroom this afternoon, I know half way through I will regret it but I know I will feel good when its done! 

So before I head off, never to be seen again, I wanted to post a card I put together last night.  I have been dying to ink up this gorgeous new Uptown Girl image from Stamping Bella - this is Audrey Loves Her Make Up:





I dream of being as stylish as this!!  I have coloured her with copics and used paper from Carina Gardner Studio - Flourish.  The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment comes with the stamp.

I wanted to join in with the Designed to Color Birthday Bash which is currently taking place and the first challenge is to follow a Tic Tac Toe board.  I have used Purple, Ribbon and Bling (the bling is on her hat, bag and shoes!). 


I also wanted to join in with Bellarific Friday which this week is a sketch and also Bellatastic Tuesday which is "Make it Pretty". 

OK, I can't put it off any longer, need to get sorting!  Have a great day and I will see you soon.

Love and Hugs
