Pink Petticoat

I wanted to make some quick and easy cards today and I wanted them to be bright and cheerful, so what better place to look than Pink Petticoat.  I think these little bees are adorable.

Truly Scrumptious - anything goes

White on White

I've never tried just white on white before, and I must say I really enjoyed myself playing with different dies and textures.  In the end I settled on swiss dots embossing and fleur de lis squares.

Stamps: Verve Stamps love story
Ink: Archival ink jet black
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Spellbinders fleur de lis squares and swiss dots embossing folder, clear embossing powder, versamark and satin ribbon.

I'm playing along with
Totally Papercrafts - white on white
Allsorts - black and white
but as I'm late posting this I'm out of time for both - oh well, I did enjoy making this card and for me that's the main thing :)

Sketch Saturday

I can't believe I'm still blogging (fingers crossed May will be a good blogging month too!!).  The weather is all over the place, today has been like the middle of summer (warm and sunny!), and it's been great being able to walk around the farm without putting loads of wet gear on, especially as I'm in and out looking at Miss Milly (my heifer), waiting for her to calve.  She's overdue and I've been having many sleepless nights waiting .......

Enough waffle, I want to show you a card that I made for Sketch Saturday

Stamp: Lili of the Valley patchwork daisy, MFT birthday princess
Paper: First Edition Paper spring feast
Ink: Memento
Accessories: Copics, Cuttlebug, Twinkling H2Os, Spellbinders nesties and labels 1, MFT die-namics flower trio and leaf trio, buttons.
