Bella Posh....21st

Hi everyone, I hope you enjoyed your Bank Holiday weekend and that it's not been too wet where you are. It's poured down here in Scotland all day so I just had a crafty day cutting out dies and colouring. This card however was made last week for an order so I thought as it had nice Summery colours I'd cheer myself up and post it on this dull day. Hope you like it. 
The stamp is from Stamping Bella from the Uptown Girl range called Posh has a present and is coloured with Copics. The papers are First Edition and the flowers are  Prima.

Still got a few hours left to play so I'm off to do some colouring. Have a great week.

I am entering this card in the following challenges........

Allsorts...Happy Birthday
Created with Love...You lift me up..3 or more layers

Hello crafty friends I hope you all enjoyed the sunshine today. I was at sports day with my Grandsons today and they had a ball. It took me back to when my Son's used to do the Egg n Spoon race and the bean bag toss many years time flies ! Anyway they thoroughly enjoyed themselves which is what it's all about when your 6 and 8 years old.
Now onto my card.........

Metal corner, flowers, gold seam binding and  cotton lace are all from Wild Orchid crafts. The image is Flora  from Funky Kits and the papers are Prima Botanicals. Sentiment tag is LOTV and the wooden heart from my stash. 
Hope you all have a lovely weekend and thanks for popping in to my blog.

Treated myself to a new A4 cutter........

This is the Happycut machine from Artemio, it cuts A4 size card and paper with ease and has all the cutting plates you need included, even for embossing. I've had my eye on this for quite a while and I'm delighted with it. As you can see it folds up when not in use and it also has a grip suction bottom to stop it moving around. 

Open ready to use

Closed with handle upright

Top compartment to house handle if you are taking to crops etc, can also be used for storing small dies 

Well there it is I hope you enjoyed seeing my new toy.....Thanks for popping in.
