SALT - Think on this

This is my SALT contribution this week.
Such a wonderful verse to remind us of the goodness of God.
We often have to think of things that are not nice, difficult and challenging in our every day lives, finding a way through that is God honouring. This verse helps me to focus on the goodness of God and his creation.

PP by Laura Ashley, Prima flowers, Martha Stewart butterfly stamp, Pebeo pearl touch, ribbon and lace from stash.

Current obsessions and CPS 79

Had a go at this week's sketch from CPS, I love that site!

Been thinking about what craft items I am really into at the moment, thought I'd make a list. I'd love to know what you're obsessed by too, please post on your blog, let me know and I'll come and visit and see if I can pick up a new obsession!

  • Scallops - big, small, scallops on scallops...
  • Dimension - the more the better! My cards are going to be thick as they are wide if I keep going to far!
  • Pink and Green - Just love that combo.
  • Pearly pins - been using loads ever since I bought some on ebay for wedding corsages.
  • Buttons - with a thread or ribbon through, I really don't like them looking naked, its just not right!
  • Martha Stewart butterfly punch - managed to find one, again off that auction site!
Anyway, back to the card, here it is.

PP by Kand Co, felt flowers by Junction18, stamp by Heidi Swapp, butterfly punch by Martha Stewart. Scallop circle and small scallop oval punch, gems and Pebeo pearl touch.

Tag You're it - Punch Art

I love punches!
They are such a versatile crafting tool. Such good value for money, one punch = millions of punchies.
I have amassed a fair collection over the years, but my favourites are the flower, leaves and winged things (butterflies and dragonflies).

So, I was very pleased to see the tag challenge this week, check it out here.

Punches used: X cut, EK success, Leone Em and Anna Griffin.

Been away...

We all went off to Sheffield for a few days to visit a friend of ours. Went to a fab museum that was extremely child orientated, lots for them to do and . Tom discovered another bookshop! My friend took these pics with my camera, I just love them! Luke looks so handsome and grownup. He was 6 yesterday!

Julie has awarded me with this...

I am so honoured, there are so many people I could pass this on to, I know its a bit of a cop-out, but if you're on my list of links consider it yours.

Busy day!

A village near us was having their annual show. A friend of Luke's was to be an attendant on the carnival queen's float and asked Luke to accompany him. I was encouraged to dress up and got a prize! I entered four cards and two floral art categories. Got second prize for my card and third for one of the floral displays. A grand total of £8 won today!

Here is the card in more detail...

When I knew I wanted to enter the card section of the show I had thought of doing a pop card. I saw this technique last week and thought I'd try it out. I had bought the Martha Stewart Clasic Butterfly punch and was itching to use it. Only one type of cardstock was used throughout with lots of layering of flowers and leaves.

Ingredients: Punches by Martha Stewart, Punch Bunch, Dove craft and Carl Craft. Fiskars shape cutter for circles. Leaf stamp by Rubber Stamp Tapestry, sentiment stamp by Anna Griffin.

Thanks for your comments, please let me know if you'd be interested in me doing a tutorial on this card.
