2 For The Price Of 1

Hi sweet peeps and hope you are all OK today :)
I've got 2 card to share today, so firstly, it’s time to nip across the pond and join our friends over at the
Simon Says Stamp challenge and this week our theme is

Easter / Spring

We are showcasing  MEMORY BOX products this week.
You don't have to use them of course , but if you have them we would love to see them.

As always, our lovely Heidi is giving away a fabulous …

… for one lucky winner to spend …

… right here :)

So ….


.. this is what I did.

I have to say please excuse the pics here (and also the lack of them). The light was awful when I took these and I intended to take some more but time ran away with me.

The papers are from a  Memory Box Brioche 6x6 Paper pack, and I absolutely love them. They are just the right weight as well - we LIKE that :)

I haven't used Memory Box papers before but I feel quite sure I will again.


The butterfly was made using Memory Box  Darla Butterfly Die and Memory Box Vivienne Butterfly Die and of course the sentiment was done with good old SAFMAT Self-Adhesive Printing Film.

Ok now we are going back in time to yesterday so please pretend it's Tuesday!!!

And if it's Tuesday, it must be Papertake Weekly time and this week it's also all about

Easter Treats

and we are sponsored by my 2 fave ribbon-istas, Mary & Andrea aka

The Ribbon Girl

I decided to use one of my new Magnolias which arrived from Simon Says Stamp - she is Happy Easter Tilda.

I coloured her with these Copics  -

Skin - E000, E00, E11, E13 R00, R02

Hair - E41, E42, E43, E50

The rest - RV000, RV00, RV01, RV23

The papers are from the new Nitwits Good Hare Day collection (I love the names that Mary Fran gives to her collections - they always make me smile).

And after a mammoth post, I think we're done!! Thank you sweet peeps for bearing with me xxx

I'm off to do the next thing on my mahoosive list before the crime prevention bods come out tomorrow. Fingers crossed that they think we've done what we need to!!

I hope that you are all having a great evening and I'll be back soon as soon.

Till then, take care and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
