Another Trio

A quick post from me today as I've had a dodgy neck and shoulder for the past week or so and I'm having to limit computer time to a bare minimum - I hate getting old and all the aches and pains that go with it!


All my cards today are made with Uniko goodies and stamped with the Misti and Memento inks. The butterfly on the first card was coloured with Promarkers and given a  good Wink of Stella.

Using 'english country garden butterflies' (plus matching die), 'background blocks mid century modern II' and 'big & bold happy'

Uniko's 8th Birthday Linky Party! 'create a birthday card'


Penny Black and More challenge 'animals, birds and butterflies'

Stamping Sensations challenge 'feminine'



Using 'background blocks mid century modern' and 'always & forever' (a new release)


Double D challenge 'hearts'

Time Out challenge 'affection'




Using new release sets - 'you are sentiments outlined' and a couple of tiny hearts from 'big & bold love'


The Sisterhood of Crafters challenge 'newly acquired stash'

Moving Along With The Times challenge 'no image - sentiment/quote as focus to your card'

CASology challenge 'sweetheart'

Less is More challenge 'less (tiny & few)'

AAA Cards challenge 'up to one third + optional twist hearts'



That's it from me for now, I'm off for a gentle stroll to the local shops. Thanks for popping by today and for taking the time to leave a comment... I really do appreciate it.
