Moxie Fab World Spectacle Challenge

Play Date Cafe

Not my normal colours but I'm loving them. Had to go with the dots sponging over punched foil. Love how it changes that flower.

and Moxie Tuesday Trigger.

Love the watercolour effect with these flowers. Love to doodle on them!


For Lily Pad Flower Challenge and Simon Says Stamps Anything Goes challenges

Used the stamp to make a mask, then sponged over using punched tin foil. Stamped the flower in black lining it up with a stamp positioner. Coloured lines in with white gel pen. Added doodes and bling.

Easter wishes 2

Take 2 with my little bunny. Another box card, but lighter.
 I like this Fabscraps paper best for my basket.

Easter Wishes

This is the cutest bunny! A stamp from a now out-of-business company in South Africa. To peep I thought it best to have a box card.

Origami basket made out of Fabscraps paper.

Sunshine Mini Album

The last gift ready for the box of sunshine and card . . . a mini book fill with uplifting quotes and thoughts.

Used 2 of the stamps from the Simon Says Monthly Card Kit.

Box of Sunshine

When I saw this (here), I knew I had to make one for someone special who needs a little more sunshine right now.

So bought lots of "yellow" goodies, and make up the box. Second layer.

Top layer.

The Lid.

She is my Sunshine

Thank you Shari for your wonderful technique video on how to create your own sunshine shape!

My eldest is my sunshine, so this is perfect for her. So this is for the Hero Arts April "Sunshine and Showers" Challenge, and the CAS-ual Fridays Song Challenge (You are my sunshine)

1st Birthday Blog Hop for Lily Pad Cards

Welcome to the Lily Pad Cards First Birthday blog hop! This will last for one week!
A true whizz around the world with inspiration from the four corners - however illogical that may be as a globe has no corners! You should be joining us from Donna's blog 3 Umbrellas. From an island in the Pacific, to one in the Indian Ocean.

Prizes! Prizes! Prizes!
There are three prize packages with a total retail value of over $300! These prizes will be awarded by random draw. There are 2 ways to be eligible, you need to “like” us on Facebook here, but if you don't have a Facebook account, you can leave a comment on the Lily Pad Blog, here. If you would like to improve your chances, you can leave comments on each of the blogs participating in this hop. For each comment, you get your name entered again (but only one comment per blog, please). 
You can comment until 12:00 EST on 8 April to be eligible for the lucky draw!
. . . wishing Lily Pad a BIG 1st birthday!! They are stars.

I used a kraft card base. Stamped the Lily of the Valley stamp (where there is free worldwide shipping if you buy before midnight tonight!) on Neenah white with Memento Black and coloured with Copics.  Stamped the Stampin' Up Wish Big sentiment and embossed with white embossing powder. Punched some stars and added dashes and dots with a white gel pen.

In celebration, I will be giving some blog candy too!  You need to be a follower, and leave a comment.

Thanks for stopping by! Now you can hop over the Atlantic to the US for Kathy's creation at The Daily Marker.
