BBTB2 - Birthday Cake

Good Morning. Hope you had a great weekend.

Today, Diana has challenged us over at BBTB2 to use our cricuts to make a project  with a birthday cake on it.

I used Artiste at 4.75" for the cake and my scoreboard to 3d the wrapper.
The heart and sentiment are both from My Creative Time.
The paper was scraps on my table.

This was for a friend who loves making cupcakes.
Do check out all the inspiration from the DT and come and play along.

Thanks for looking.

BBTB2 - Parrot!

Hi, today is a new challenge over at BBTB2 and our wonderfully talented Caroline is our host.
Birds of a feather is this week's challenge.
I love the bird on Art Philosophy and always go to that one. But what is a challenge without challenging yourself?!

I Used the parrot cut in his cage from Wild Card 2 cut at 4.5" instead.
DP - Crate Paper - Random and silver sparkle fibres to hang the cage.
My Pink Stamper - Tweetie Hoo Puns

It's cuter in person but the jury is still out...not sure it's one of my favourite cards but I like that it is different!!! Lol.

The DT really do have some super cards for inspiration. Do check them out and come and join in the fun.

Hoppy Easter!

Hello  my fellow crafty friends!
It's been a busy couple of weeks around here. 
We had a fab time in France and the weather was beautiful too.
Work's been busy and there's been a plethora of tournaments and County golf matches for Ossian.
It's also been lovely catching up with family and friends.

There's something exciting in the pipeline... will share when I am able to!

I hope you are enjoying your Easter weekend.
Today is my day and I plan to craft, in between washing and baking ready for tomorrow.
The boys are out at County golf so the house is quiet!

Just lately I have been playing with Mama Elephant stamps and dies...I love these.

Isn't he a cutie?

I used Mama Elephant - Honey Bunny stamps and creative cuts dies.
Lawn fawn grass die.
Paper smooches stitched tag.
My Creative Time for the 4 x 4 stitched mat.

I am entering this over at Make the Day Special Challenge - Anything Goes.
They are a fab UK online shop that stock lots of great companies from the US.
In my experience their customer service is good and delivery speedy.

If I'm not a lazy blogger and manage to photograph and upload piccies of the other Easter cards/treats I have made I will share tomorrow. 
If not...Happy Easter Everyone!!

Chocolate Bunny!

Hi, how are you doing?
This week over at BBTB2 the very lovely Brenda has asked us to make an Easter project.
When I finished making last week's bunny challenge I discovered this sweet bunny  and just had to use him!

I used Create a Critter 2 at 3.5" for the chocolate bunny and took a scalloped circle punch to his ear for the 'bite' mark.
The stitched journal die is by lawn fawn.

Check out all the fantastic inspiration from the DT ladies and come play along.

Easter Bunny - BBTB2

Hi Everyone! 
Hope you had a great weekend.
School hols have started here and we are off to France to play some golf in a couple of days time.
I am really looking forward to the break, especially after the last couple of weeks!

Today is a new challenge over at BBTB2 and our lovely Team Leader, Susan, has asked us to make a project using a cricut cut Easter Bunny.

My bunny is a bit of a frankenstein bunny as he is 2 critters joined together!!
I used Create a Critter and cut the raccoon's body at 3" and added the rabbit's head - cut at 4".
I used my copics to define a little. I am really delighted how he turned out!

The card base was cut at 5.5" from Art Philosophy.
The bow is from mama Elephant.
