Spring has Sprung!

Ahhhhh Spring! Sorry I have not posted a card in a while...I have been painting ceilings - a LOT of ceilings!!!

I thought I should post a few photos of the project I am talking about,

The first photo was just a few weeks ago and the bottom photo was taken this weekend, so as you can see we have been BUSY!!! I still have LOT of painting to do! We ordered carpet which arrives on the 29th and we decided to go ahead and re carpet the whole house too as my carpets are very worn, we were told that all we had to do was remove knick problem I thought until I looked around my house and realized just how many knick knacks I have!!! This will take FOREVER! Yet something else added to my looooooooong to do list

It will all be worth it.

Here's what I used for the card:

The stamps are Unity Little Buggers, Spellbinders pinking circles, ribbon by Creative Impressions.

Don't forget I still have Lizzie Anne stamps & Marvy punches on sale and all of my Spellbinders are FREE SHIPPING within the USA.

Happy Springy Monday everyone :D

Going insane!!

I apologize for being absent from the blogging world, if you saw my house you would know why hahaha!

We have been adding a basement (play area) and also I took down a shelf in my bedroom which was like something out of the Flintstones era!!! It was wood with builders mud and chicken wire!!! UGH!

I have been surrounded by chaos and now my head is in chaos!!! Is it the same for you?

I will try and get a card made this week. I hope you all have a lovely Easter. My girls had so much fun they didn't want the day to end!

As promised... is my card. I can't believe I haven't made one for over a week! I decided to try out my new Spellbinders emboss plates and they are FAB!

I have a Cuttlebug so to use these in a cuttlebug (and also to emboss the Spellbinder Nesties in the cuttlebug) here's what I do...

...I put the big A plate down, then a B plate, then my emboss folder face up and on top of that I place 2 of Spellbinders Polymer mats. Cover all this with the second B plate and run it through my machine and VIOLA!

I only wish that my camera would have picked up the detail better, it's so stunning in real life! I will try this our with a darker colour in a few days :)
Here's what I used for the card:
Little Buggers Stamp set by Unity
Spellbinders Impressabilities - Paisley
Creative Impressions gingham ribbon
