March Playday swaps received

These two lovely swaps were from Liz & Sarah

Liz's card was so very tactile and the colours were gorgeous.  Not sure if you can see but each of the butterflies and flowers have been inked in a darker colour which makes the original colour really stand out.  Lovely.

Sarah's bingo board was fabulous too, it even had bling!!  Sarah had also made us a card to match which was full of colour and embellishments to catch your eye.
So there you have it the swaps for the day.

Brilliant, can't wait for next playday.

March playday Make & Take from me

Good morning, what a lovely day outside!  Can't wait to finish work today and get out there and enjoy the sunshine.

Hope you have lots of nice things planned for the weekend and that you will be thoroughly spoilt.

Today I wanted to share with you the Make & Take for my playmates last Sunday.  It was a very simple and quick card to do.  
I spent a long time last month searching for my mojo and thought I had found it briefly but alas it disappeared again in the blink of an eye.  I knew that I only had a couple of days left before I had to get my Make & Takes and swaps ready so I decided to just pull out two colours from the Subtle  Collection and go for it and voila this was the result!
 Fortunately my mojo has decided to hang around for a while so going to take advantage and get some crafting done!

Hope you have a lovely weekend

March Playday swap no. 2 from me!!! - Kissing Bunnies

Well, these are the original swaps that I had made for my playmates but really wasn't very happy with them so had to go to Plan B.
This was the first time I had made this type of box and I felt as if they just weren't "perfect" enough to be used as gifts. 
I did get to use my new fringe scissors to make the grass, which I think turned out ok.

I took the boxes along to the playday anyway and gifted them to my playmates.  I just hope they enjoyed the contents and not actually studied my box!!!

March Playday swap no. 1 from me x

Today finally arrived, PLAYDAY!  I really look forward to these days.  Crafting, chatting, drinking coffee, crafting, eating, chatting, you know what I mean?!
These are the swaps I made for my playmates.  Bit late for calendars I know but.........
I originally made another swap for March which was Easter related but I really wasn't that happy with the end result so, I decided to make these the night before Playday!! 
I was pleased at how they turned out.

Sorry lots of pics!  Lots of different angles to cover.  

All Stampin'Up! products used except for the actual calendar of course!

Peaceful Petals - Thank You

Todays card was using the new Peaceful Petals stamp set.  Love this new set from the Spring/Summer catalogue. 
The flower heads from the Peaceful Petals stamp set were stamped and cut out to give dimension to the card.
The sentiment stamp is from the Peaceful Petals stamp set also.  However the really cute flower border was free from the SAB promotion set You're Lovely.  Of course the card was finished off with rhinestone bling!

Thank you for stopping by
