Challenge 18 over at Jellypark Friends

Whoopee this is my 100th post lol.

Hope you all enjoyed the Jellypark Charity Blog Hop last week, I know I did :o).
It's time for a new Jellypark Challenge and as this month is National Craft Month we want to know what are your favourite craft products/techniques?

I adore buttons, just love them so I have quite a few on my card in various forms and my favourite technique is cutting out with my craft knife. I find it very therapeutic especially with particularly intricate images.

 The digi was a Jellypark freebie for - World Card Making Day so I thought it was appropriate for my DT card it's also available as a freebie over on the challenge blog..
The button border die is new, for my birthday my best friend got me vouchers for Joanna Sheen's online shop - oh I've had so much fun spending them :o).
I picked up a spring themed  6x6 paper stack from Hobbycraft a couple of weeks ago and the papers are so gorgeous I've almost used them all up. This  floral one has lovely glittery flowers.


There are new releases being showcased over in the store and the DT have made some gorgeous cards with them so pop on over for a look.

Don't forget to visit the store if you would like to support "Little Havens" charity, there are currently 3 stunning digi stamps which you can buy and every penny from the sale will go to the charity.

Happy Crafting!

  3. Congratulations on your 100th post, your cards are beautiful and I love what you've done with this one. May I just ask where the sentiment stamp came from as it is just so right for a card like this and I'd love to be able to use it.
    Many thanks and happy creating,
    Here's to the next 100!
