I love purple socks!

Hiya, I hope you're all having a nice weekend!
Me and my Mum have had a lovely time crafting and then we watched American Idol.
We both made cards and for mine i decided to follow this sketch.
I really loved doing the colouring for this card and i even went round the outside of it
to try and make it stand out a bit.
 And i even remembered to check that i'd put the lids back on the promarkers properly!
One of the best things about this card is that i made it with stuff from our stash - Mum was saving the stamp for something special but said i could borrow it!
Thank you for looking at my blog.
Love from Rebecca
this is what i used for the card
blank card - ribbon - flower punch
purle card - patterned paper - green card
Sugar Nellie stamp - pearls

I love ATC's!

Hi everyone, i hope you are all OK.
Hello to my new followers as well and thank you for following me.
Today i want to share these ATC's i made. They are made using some things that my Mum got for me last summer and i've only used one little bit of it before now and they are called Smirk. 
There's papers and die cuts and stamps and ribbon and even some alphabet letters!
I think i'm going to use them a lot more now!
First i cut the card to the right ATC size which is 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
Then i layered some lovely Smirk paper on top. 
There's some stripy paper and flowery paper and some has even got glitter on.They are really nice.
 Next i made up the the little girls with their cute animals. I used foam pads to stick all the layers on top of each other. Then i put little pearls and gems in the corners.
And that's it.
Thank you for looking at my little blog and for all the lovely comments you all leave for me.
Love from Rebecca

Saturated Canary Kids card swap

Hi everyone, i hope you are all OK.
Hello as well to my new followers, thank you for following me and i will be coming to visit
you over the weekend!
Today i wanted to tell you all about the kids card swap i did last month.
It was organised by Krista Smith who is the lady who draws the 
Saturated Canary digi images. 
All the kids that entered the swap got a partner and they both had to make a card
 using a Saturated Canary digi.
It's a good job my Mum has some of these cos i really was excited about it.
My partner was Niamh who is Krista's daughter and she lives in America!!!
I was just so excited to know somebody in America and it looks like me and Niamh like loads of the same things and her Mum told my Mum that Niamh says i'm her long lost Sister.
I think we will be friends forever!
This is the card that Niamh made for me. I love the bright colours and the patterns and i really love the sewing
all around the edges

. Niamh sent me a lovely present of some Hubba Bubba and some
Starburst lip gloss. How did she know that Starburst are one of my favourite things?

 Here is a picture of the card that i made for Niamh.
To Krista - Thank you for organising the card swap.I hope me and Niamh
keep in touch forever.
Thank you for looking at my blog.
Love from Rebecca xx
