You Totally ROCK.....

Hello everyone, Sarah B here today with a card to share!!!!I have used Leslie from The Greeting Farm's Creepin' Creeper Crew Collection 1.

She is so sassy, I love her!! She is available with the rest of the crew and some great sentiments from Dies to Die for.

Here is the card I created, using some gorgeous papers from My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose 6 x 6 Pad called Mabel.

I love these pads as the papers are gorgeous, I haven't found one I don't like and they have only 2 of each which means you get very little bits left.

I have teamed it up with some Cherry Cobbler from Stampin' Up

And finally I created some of my favourite flowers and completed them with some pearly brads.

Take care

In Memory of.....

Good Morning!!!! Oh dear Blogging has gone well and truly up the spout this week!!!! It would be really nice to have a normal week at school, if anyone has ever had one let me know!!!!

It has been crazy!

Right I have a card to share.....

It was a commission which I always find very difficult. Last Year I was asked by the same lady to make a card and memory box for a little girl who had died suddenly.. Well its been a year and again I have been asked to create a Memory Card and here it is.....

Abigail would be able the same age as Cameron..... and I know only too well what its like to loose someone close, but a child must be the ultimate loss!

As she would be a year older I have tried to make the card a like older. I have used a Manga Image from Sugar Nellie, and gone very Pink and Green.

One of the requests was to have butterflies - so i used the simplest I have - the one from Stampin' Up.

And inside I used a gorgeous new die - Hearts-a-plenty from Sizzix - its gorgeous and a real WOW factor!

And more Butterflies..

Hope you like.

Take care and I'll be back tomorrow with another share.

The papers are from MME - Stella Rose (can't remember the book) There are so many to choose from they are gorgeous, and the new ones Lime Twist are stunning!!!!

A Special Easter Goodie......

Good Afternoon everyone. I hope you all had a lovely Sunday!!!!

Here is another Easter Pressie. I made this for My Gorgeous Little Girl - although she is twelve - GOSH where does the time go!!!!

She is growing up so quickly, so had to think of something quite sophisticated.

So I used Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake from Stampin' Up to create this Easter Calendar.

(Cameron had one as well, but I'll share that tomorrow).

I used the Top Note Die from Stampin' Up as the base, with two holes punched and eyeletted!!

I then used a sizzix XL Box die I have which creates a cute top opening box!

Each of these were decorated using Baja Breeze DSP, and then Ribbon wrapped around or flowers.

Each box then spelt out her name.

Each box then contained a little bit of chocolate - which they got to have each day over the Easter Weekend.
Here is the finished projects, Not the best of pictures but It turned out quite big.

Hope you like

Last day today!!!

Take care
