A couple of cards for you today, using new goodies I have used for the first time, the first card I am entering for the Sketch and Stash Challenge where they have a great sketch to follow. I have had a bit of a inspiration block for the last few weeks and instead of wanting to make cards I have had to force myself into it. But yesterday I sat down at my desk and they almost made themselves so hopefully the joy of crafting is back.
Another of the lovely Toby Tumble downloads from Cuddly Buddly for you today, he is irresistible isn’t he, cannot wait to see more of him. The paper is Echo Park Wintertime from Quixotic Paperie, and the embossed mat behind the image was made using the Marianne Designs Cut and Embossing Folder also from Cuddly Buddly, I bought a couple of these from the stand at the NEC . The Snowflake and Mistletoe is cut with the Magnolia Doo Hickeys Christmas Die, Hellebore and Cherry Blossom is from Wild Orchid Crafts. Toby has been coloured with Copics and as with the Snowflake, Mistletoe and Flowers has had lots of Glamour Dust brushed over him.

Yesterday the postman bought me a package from Quixotic Paperie and inside were the 2 sets of Stempleglede Stamps I pre-ordered, OMG they are just awe inspiring I love them and just had to play.
I have used three of the stamps from the Vintage Garden Collection on here, the flowers, sentiment and corner swirl, they have been stamped with Stone Grey Stazon, the flowers have been coloured with a mixture of Distress Inks and Prismas. The paper is from Webster Pages Collection also available from Quixotic Paperie. The Butterflies are from Panduro and flowers of course are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The Ribbon is from the Hobby House and hearts were a RAK wish I could get some more of these, they are the last 2 I have.
Happy Crafting and thanks for looking
