Spring and Daisies

 Morning and I have two DT posts today-the first one is for Stamping Sensations and we have an ATG/Spring Mood Board challenge and welcome to Helen as our GD this month.

I went with pink and daisies from the mood board using stamps from AALL&Create onto a lightly smooshed background,I also stamped the smaller daisies onto white card and used like a spotlight, I added script in the same distress ink colour and I found the die-cut circle off a previous smooshed piece in an oddments box so on it went lol, daisies were coloured with promarkers.

We have a £25 voucher prize from Crafty Individuals.

Smash Your Stash-Postal

 Morning and as it's the last Saturday of the month time for the Smash Your Stash journal challenge with my blogging friend Vicki at Stamped Smiles. Hope you will check her brilliant blog out too.The prompt this month is "Postal" but I went slighty off pist with travel too lol.The background was just a mop up page -always use a journal page for mop ups, I added a postcard I had previously made  using stamps from an old Rubber Stampede set,some of the stamps fussy cut and added.

The digi postcards I found in the bottom of a little drawer after a declutter this week and getting rid of my craft desk and a load of craft stuff to the craft club at the local school my youngest Son and then his Daughters went to.I'm not giving up crafting just I can't be going up and down the stairs,so had a declutter on computer desk and brought main stuff downstairs so desk no longer needed and it was in our bedroom----so gone! Anyway I digress lol.Finally I added some old stamps which I found too so more stash smashed!!!
