ALL PRETTY.....

Hi Everyone,

Would you look at me being all Pretty & sweet.... You know before I had a blog these are the type of cards I used to adore making...so I decided to make one to take part in the Hobby House new Challenge... I have not made a card like this for a long time... and I must say I loved putting it together... I'm a little rusty but still enjoyed it so much...I hope you like it!!

 I used the sweet pre-coloured image from the Hobby House called Sweet Blossom... The backing papers are from  Lost & Found Blush collection...the sentiment is a SU Stamp, the small butterflies are also a SU Punch.. the larger one is from a Magnolia die..The hanging hearts are from Memory box the rest is from my stash....


Whoop Whoop I won some candy from the lovely Vicky  from Vixx handmade cards... Vicky Thank you so much it is all adorable. Now you have inspired me to make more pretty cards...
 Look at this AmAzing plaque Vicky send me... I adore it, Thank you Vicky I will treasure this it's got a place on my shelf in my crafty space...Simply Beautiful....
Thank you all so much for your kind visit today....
Hugs May x x x

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
HOBBY HOUSE  ( Anything Goes)
Totally Papercrafts(Anything Goes)
