A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Hobby House Inspiration

Hi Everyone! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!

It's my turn for a little inspiration today over at the Hobby House and I chose to use this beautiful new topper from the Elisabeth Bell range called April Showers.  I actually made this card back in February when we were having nothing but rain, rain and more rain LOL.  Also, I was super chuffed to have my little creation aired on Create & Craft, along with a couple more of my creations, and my little boy was in awe that my card was on TV .... although he was a little less pleased to see that, after showing it, they 'squashed' it (his words) with another card ...... hee hee, bless him :)

These new toppers are just so gorgeous and so easy to create with.  I used the 8" x 8" Country Lady papers by Lili of the Valley, which co-ordinated perfectly with this topper, and only changed the topper slightly by adding a little ivory chalk over it.  The butterflies are from my Joanna Sheen Signature die.  You can find a list of all of the fabulous Hobby House products I used listed separately HERE.  The green ribbon was originally white and I coloured with Copics to co-ordinate with the image.

It's the start of our April Challenge tomorrow so make sure you head on over to see what our theme will be for the next month and for your chance to win some delicious Hobby House goodies!

Thanks so much for popping by today and I hope you can join us throughout April with your beautiful creations.

Big hugs xx
