Aquamarine for Daring Cardmakers

Over at Daring Cardmakers, it's March's birthstone this week - aquamarine. I love this gemstone, so had fun doing this card.
I found these stamps on someone's blog and fell in love with them, I am really sorry but I can't remember who put me on to them, but her card was fabulous enough for me to go straight to the site and order a couple. They are the fantasy Art collection by Ching-Chou Kuik, and I got them from Sweetpea-Stamps
Coloured her in copics, I rather like her blue rinse!
I added some glitter to the wings
The beaded flower is a ready made one I found on clearance (Crafty Bitz)

Look what I found in Aldi - I love Aldi, you never know what you are going to find there. This is meant to hold nails and screws, but I knew it would be perfect to hold all my bits and bobs (well, some of my bits and bobs). I sorted my flowers and beads into colourways, and they all have their own little drawer, and I can see at a glance where everything is. It was only £7.99 - bargain. I may go and get another one to take back to the US with me, I seem to remember my flowers being a bit of a jumbled mess over there






The Ikea trip was uneventful believe it or not. I clung to my list, Mike trailed around after me, looking a bit miserable. I felt a lot of sympathy for the Queen, this is how she must have felt for all these years, Prince Phillip always a step or two behind, looking a bit down-in-the-mouth. A plate of meatballs cheered him up a bit though (Mike, not the prince.............)
See you tomorrow

  1. Oh Enfys, I so enjoy coming to your blog. I can't believe you didn't get anything at IKEA, good for you sticking to your list - can you believe I have never been to one. Love your new container.. might have to look for one of those. AND of course I so love your beautiful card.

  21. I must tell you (and this is going to sound so strange, I know) but I thought of you today (before you think I'm some crazy stalker, I'll explain) I was in my local JoAnn's (and it is a tiny one) And there sat on the magazine rack, a Card Making and Papercraft magazine from the UK! Now, it was the February issue and I had to pay $9.99 for it,but I couldn't resist. I'll just have to apply all the Valentine's inspiration to a different theme :)
    By the way,Beautiful aquamarine card.
    Hugs,
