Happy Easter - and some Sweet Peas....

I have been itching to make stuff with the new Sweet Pea collection by Craftwork Cards, the colours and textures are just gorgeous, my all time favourite I think. I love the whitewashed weathered wood look, and it makes it so easy to make lovely cards. For this first one, I just used two of the textured squares as a background to some stamped flowers (also by Craftwork Cards), and stamped the blooms a second time onto the taupe paper, and cut out.....



and this second one was made in much the same way, but using one of the diecut blooms as a focal point.....I get a lot of queries asking if these papers are available in the USA, Craftwork Cards will ship to North America, but there is a flat rate shipping charge of £22 which is $35, so if you are desperate to get hold of some, it may pay for you to club together with a couple of crafty friends to share the shipping costs. Card Candi and the messages are available in the States now though....



I mentioned news..... woo hoo! I am going to be doing stuff for Kanban Crafts, I have always loved their stamps and the gorgeous patterned cardstock, so I am very delighted to be joining a brand new design team, the postman has already staggered up the path with a huge box of goodies, so watch this space.........  


just to remind you, here are a few of my past cards made with Kanban products........








The monthly challenge closes tomorrow night, so if you have a bit of time on your hands in between scoffing all the Easter eggs, you just have time to get a card done.......


Off to London now for chocolatey hugs with Max and Milo.....
