Suzanne at Slumber Cards is offering some awesome blog candy this week, and all you have to do is to post a photo of your favourite Spring tree or blooms. Sadly, we don’t have any blossom trees in flower at the moment and the daffodils have finished flowering, so my offering is my favourite shrub, Photinia ‘Red Robin’, which throws up wonderful red leaves in the Spring, adding a beautiful splash of colour at this time of year.

For our fourth challenge at Tilda and Friends we are celebrating the birthplace of our favourite stamps. In honour of this, the challenge this week is ‘Blue and Yellow’, the colours of the Swedish flag. I used an image of Edwin dressed in blue and yellow on my ATC, and the papers are scraps from my stash, as is the little key charm.
Looking forward to seeing your ATCs!

Hasn’t the weather been awful during the Easter break? Whilst it snowed, hailed and froze, I stayed in the warm and made a few cards – the gardening can always wait for another weekend! The first one is a birthday card for a dear friend – have a lovely day on Wednesday, Sue! The image is a Lola Rose image from Pink Petticoat, The colouring is done with Prisma pencils blended with Sansodor. I’ve added a touch of Sakura clear Glaze to the rose on the bath, and ‘Fluffy Stuff’ to the bubbles, with crystal glitter sprinkled sparingly on top before heating with a heat gun. The papers are Sissix and blue pearl card, and the pink silky flower is from Prima.
On the Dotty Lola card I used a lovely pearly dotty background paper by Craft House, with light orange cardstock embossed with the Swiss Dots folder from Cuttlebug The Lola with Bunny stamp is by Sugar Nellie, coloured in with Prisma, blended with Sansodor. The flower is from Prima.
The cute sheep image is also by Pink Petticoat, and I’ve used Fluffy Stuff to accentuate her wool. Prisma pencils with Sansodor were used to colour, adding glaze pens on the flower and sheep’s hooves. I embossed the yellow card stock with a Cuttlebug folder, and the background paper is from my stash. I also used a Cuttlebug die to cut the flower accent after printing the sentiment on the computer.
Hope you enjoy the new cards!

The challenge this week at Tilda and Friends is ‘Chocolate’. I hope you’ll agree with me that the DT have done a great job, and all the ATCs are deliciously yummy! We have another treat for you this week – three lucky participants will receive some of the recent Tilda images, plus some little accessories like flowers and leaves, which are very useful for accents. Why not pop along to Tilda and Friends ATC Challenge and enjoy the only non-fattening chocolate you’ll find this weekend! I’m looking forward to seeing your ATCs.
