We're Jammin'

Good morning bloggers!  Well yesterday turned out to be rather nice so fingers crossed for today!  I said to Dave yesterday that we should be thinking about getting our bedding plants and then on the weather forecast it said a big chance of frost!

For today's card I have used another Belles and Whistles rubber stamp by Elizabeth Bell, well its actually acrylic not rubber but you get my drift!


I have coloured her with Copics and Prismas and added some Glossy Accents to her jar (although I think I should have put some red on it because it looks empty lol).  She has been cut with Spellbinders and distressed with Antique Linen DI.  The image from Pink Petticoat has been cut and matted with Spellbinders.  The heart banner is Whiff of Joy die, the corner is a Whimsy die and the flower is Daisy Flower Topper by Spellbinders.  I have added some Spiced Marmalade DI and Beadazzles to the flower.  The papers are First Edition Boho Chic and ribbon is from my stash.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Bearly Mine - Use Dies
Creative Craft Challenges 2 - Distressed
Die Cuttin' Divas - Flowers
Oh La La - Ribbon or Twine
Joanna Sheen - Happy Birthday
The Squirrel and the Fox - One for the Girls
Cupcake Inspirations - Photo Inspiration
2 Sister's Challenge - Make it Girly
Truly Scrumptious - Anything Goes
Whimsy Inspirations - Anything Goes

Hope you all have a lovely day today whatever you are doing.  I am meeting a friend for a coffee this morning and then a crafty afternoon.  Thanks so much for looking and take care xx

I can't wait to see what you made during your crafty afternoon!

Your card is so sweet! I don't use peach/coral often enough, and I am not quite sure I have much in my stash to use.

I need to push myself more outside my pinks and aquas, but it's hard to go away from things you love! :-)

Hello Susan, I missed a couple of cards. My mother made the last card. You said unusual colours. That's right. I never use them, but I liked it too. I can't sit down of the pain of my back. So I will come visit you again if my back will be better. See you hopefully soon.
xoxo Annette
