Welcome to my Surf Shack!

I recently spent a lovely crafty morning at a friend's house where we worked on making surf shacks.  I've had my surf shack die for quite a while but being the procrastinator that I am, I hadn't got around to using it so I was grateful for the push. So without further ado, here is my surf shack

I used a couple extra dies (courtesy of my friend). Starfish and shell are Marianne and the green plants are Sizzix Tiny Tattered Florals.  This is a really amazing die as you can make a variety of flowers. I was so impressed with it that I have since ordered my own.

I just love those green plants!

I then decided to add something

Did you spot it?

Linda's Craft Room

Hello Blog Friends!  I can't believe that it has been over a year since I last posted on here. As you all know well, life can get pretty hectic and one doesn't always get much time to do the things they love.
But recently I did get to make a card for a very special person's birthday.  It was quite interesting because that person actually left a message on my blog a few days ago about her coming to visit and never seeing anything new.  So Lin, this one's for you!

The stamp I used was Holly Wreath Tilda but I cut off the wreath and added a Melissa Frances mini frame instead.

The background brick wall is an Impression Obsession cover a card stamp and I added a die cut window frame. The foliage is a DooHickey die and a Martha Stewart punch.

And because Linda has two cats, her craft room wouldn't be complete with without them!

 And look, she's already received a birthday card from a secret admirer!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to update my blog more regularly!

I'm going to enter my card in these challenges:
