        Hi everyone !

        Hi everyone,
        Sorry to have been MIA ..We have been in Barcelona,visiting Sara ( our daughter ). We had a smashing time and never stopped ! It doesn't matter how many times you go there, you always discover new parts etc.This time we travelled over to Tarragona and visited the PortAventura theme park for a day.We have been a few times over the years. We had a great time at the park ! We got soaked numerous times on the water rides..and it just added to the fun. They have a new rollercoaster there,' Shambhala' and all l can say is ..It was an Experience !!! hehehe...( see it on YouTube !)  Sara was free from work for 2 days , so it was great that she could join us...Back to routine now though, and just caught up with everything! So , l will be visiting you all soon to see what you have all been up to !

The coredinations brown card stock has been put through an embossing folder and lightly sanded afterwards. As l wanted this to have a rather male look to it,l have added 4 staplers just for decoration... All dies have foam pads to give them a 3D look and all materials are from my stash.

            Quick and Simple !

            Afternoon everyone,
            I think the weather today over here in Mallorca, has ticked all the boxes. This morning was glorious, blue skies, sunny and warm !  We took advantage of today being a 'fiesta'  day and  we had a lovely long walk and a coffee in a little bar infront of the beach. Come lunchtime, we were having thunder, heavy rain, hailstones and a considerable drop in the temperatures ! Looking out now, as l write , we are back to blue skies with some dark clouds lurking on the horizon...Its crazy ! So all you in the UK  or else where suffering from all the heavy rains of late, and  thinking of' 'Spanish sunshine'...think again ! hehehe
            The card l am showing you all today is really quick and simple...5x5 white card blank.2 sheets of the same pink , flowery paper.One for the front of the card and the other for the inside. The topper is from Kanban ( l think).I have used 3 little pearls and some pink ribbon and a little pink, material flower embellishment.. .thats it ! Everything used today is from my stash !

              Evening everyone,
              I made this card using an image from the Big One cd,which l have decoupaged .The card is a 5x5 white card blank. I cut the front panel away at an angle and placed the panel on the inside.I use this shape quite a bit, it just makes a change...The red stripe DP has been matted onto the front part of the card before l cut the panel away, just makes things easier. A smaller version of the main image has been added on the inside....

                Afternoon everyone,
                A few weeks ago l updated to the new interface just to give it a try , and 'disliked it '. I managed to get back onto the old interface, but looks like it won't be around for much longer, l do hate change !  Have any of you already changed over ? l would love to hear what your thoughts are about it.....
                The card l am sharing today is a 6x6 white card blank.l have used some sky blue DP and a piece of white card stock for all the layering and matting. The image is decoupaged and comes from the CD - 'The Big One' by La Pashe.. l have been using quite a few of these images lately,l just love the easy decoupage and the great images.I think this , along with the others , is  from the 'Trinitage' section. l have added lace and 2 different colour sets of pearls, in different sizes and to finish off, l have applied three little gem flowers in one of the corners.The inside is also decorated using the same papers and smaller version of the main image...

                  Afternoon everyone ,
                  Its a lovely sunny day today ! So different from the stormy days we have been experiencing .Having said that, l think the rainy days have helped the seeds l planted last month come on a treat.I have masses of little seedlings sprouting everywhere ! The problem is l can't remember the names of any of them , so l will be in for a very pleasant surprise  later on when they start to flower hehe
                  Talking of flowers...l want to share this 5x5 card with you. The image is from the ' The Big One' CD.I have decoupaged the pretty image .I have found that most of these images from the ' Trinitage ' section,  have been so easy to cut out ,and not at all fiddly.I have mounted the image onto some green card stock and then onto some lovely fresh, blue and white DP all from my stash ,along with 4 little pearls.The inside is also decorated using the same image ,card & paper.

                    The card l am sharing today is one that is made up from 'Bits and Bobs'.. The card blank is a green 5x5 and  l have used an X Cut border punch ( flower Doily) on the card edge and on the edges of the green gingham paper.I mounted the kanban topper onto a silver mirri card, scalloped  nestie. l love seeing pink and green together, so l have used a piece of pink gingham paper and finished it off with two silver peel off borders and green polka dot  satin ribbon with a pink card candi.I added a little button in the corner just to balance out the card..

                      I have had Sara ( my daughter ) over for a few days, so thats the reason behind my lack of blogging. Its always lovely when she gets her two days off together, as she can get the shuttle flight over from Barcelona and be here in Mallorca in 30 mins.
                      The card l am showing today is a 6x6 ivory coloured card blank.The stamped image is ' Pregnant Tilda' I won this stamp a while back from Bev Rochester's weekly candy giveaway. The flower,Glittered Brad,Buttons,gold peel offs ,ribbons, pearls and butterflies are all from my stash..I am still determined to carry on with the plan to 'Use It Up '. The gingham and calender design papers were a gift from my good friend Barbara ( still trying to get her to make a blog ).l have coloured the image in with watercolour pencils  and chalked the background . I distressed the edges of the card with 'shabby shutters'.

                          I can't believe it will be April tomorrow, this year seems to be flying by....I noticed a big influx of tourists this weekend,which is great ! The weather is glorious and I so hope it keeps thats way,as its nice to see families on the beach and people happy  and smiling !
                          The card I am sharing  is a 6x6 white card blank.I have sponged the front of the card using Distress ink-Milled Lavander .The papers are from my stash and are leftovers from bigger sheets.The little sentiment was a freebie from a mag and the ribbon,flowers,button,gem and pearls are also from my stash.
                          I would like to enter this card into the followering challenges...

I  have coloured it using watercolour pencils and chalks for the background. I have distressed the edges of the card and the yellow design paper with a brown ink pad and a sponge.The image is mounted onto gold mirri card .I have used a selection of different coloured , brown card stock, which is also mounted onto gold mirri card. The card candi has been tinted over with a brown promarker, to give them a 'rusty' feel.l used a scalloped nesti and natural twine and the shells are some that l have collected from my wonderful holidays in the US. These particular ones are from St Pete's in Florida, happy days !
