This weeks challenge from Our Creative Corner is Blooming Blossoms. The stamps for the image and sentiment I have used this week is from the Popcorn Bear Thank you set available from Crafters Companion. I have used promarkers to colour the image, some ribbon from my stash, patterned paper which came free with this months issue of Papercraft Essentials magazine, and those little silver pearls from the Mark Richards collection. Scoring done using the
Crafters Companion Ultimate Pro.

Way back in the day (hmm not too long ago), I bought my very first stamps from Funky Kits. It was my first go at Rubberstamping and it was my first taste of Sugar Nellie - how the addiction can grow so quicky!!! This was one of the first stamps I bought along with Hamish and his tractor. On the Sugar Nellie blog, they are currently looking back at the begining of Sugar Nellie and those first stamps. This is most definitely one of my favourite stamps. I have coloured her with promarkers, been through my stash for the papers and ribbon, the sentiment is from the Popcorn bear range of stamps, and the punched border is done with a punch from craft habitat. The silver pearls are from the Mark Richard range - how I love these too!!

I know I always ramble on about the weather....but I am a Leo - the sun is oh so very important to me....and this week the weather has been brilliant. Lots of lovely sunshine - lets hope it stays that way! This weeks challenge from Our Creative Corner is Butterflies. I love this butterfly stamp from Elusive Images. It is quite a big stamp and makes a really nice topper for the six inch square card blanks that I use. I have used promarkers to colour in the image in shades of Rose Pink, Coctail Pink and Lillac. The sentiment stamp has been used from a Popcorn Bear stamp set. The pink ribbon and cardstock have been taken from my stash (which needs major organisation), and the silver self adhesive pearls are from the Mark Richards Collection.

This weeks challenge from Catch the Bug is to use a bug somewhere on your creation. I love this fabulous little freebie image which came from Bugaboo Stamps - but the Bug Brats over on the site are so gorgeous and soooooo cute too. I have coloured the image with promarkers in red, pear green, satin, tan, and aqua blue. The sentiment has been created on the computer and the punched border on the red cardstock has been done with a punch from craft habitat. The black gems on the antannae are available from Paper Cellar and the ribbon from my stash. A little doodling with a white gel pen for the final touches.

Hooray......the weather is on the up which means brighter days and better pictures too!!. This weeks challenge from Cupcake Craft Challenges is to Make your own flowers. I love the colour combination on this card.....and it has been made without any stamping!!! I recently went to a craft fair and though I am not big on peel offs these days, I found these from Little Claire Designs. There are some cute little characters on each sheet and they are so quickly and easy to colour and I am sorry I didnt buy more at the time (will have to order some) - I have used promarkers in cocktail pink, rose pink, cinnamon, lilac and pear green. The back ground floral paper I have found in my stash, raspberry cardstock, ribbon from my stash and the flower I have made using the woodware, small, medium and large daisy punches. The brad is from a range by papermania. The sentiment too is a peel off and came on the sheet with this cute little girl.
