I used my cricut, of course, the Walk in my Garden cartridge, and bits and pieces from Willow Designs. Also my souffle pens......I love them at the moment.
I tell you what I have just bought......a rounded corner punch which is great for your ATC's the small or medium size is best for them, I bought a medium and large size and they punch through pretty heavy card as well.

Here is the other ATC that I made yesterday. I used the frame and picture that I used on my Mothers day card , put it onto the computer and made it smaller, the hearts are made using the George cartridge in my cricut machine, coloured with crystal laquers and glittered.
I am hoping to get a card made using the springtime ATC today, in between everything else I have to do.

I have also done another ATC which I've named Romance, I tried to photograph it but the light was going so I will do it tomorrow.
My desk is a mess again, I try to keep it tidy but I can't, I get over excited when I get an idea and tidiness goes out of the window lol lol.

I used George for the lettering number, hearts and flower 2 all size 1, cut onto white card and coloured with a pink stardust pen, I put a pink brad into the centre of both flowers. I also used Walk in my Garden using bldhrt's (3 small) size 1, rose 1, size 1 and 2 also coloured in a pink stardust pen.
I love those little rose 1's, they are so versatile for borders and things.
Everything else from Willow Designs
I struggled with this project, but enjoyed it as well.

There is a big venue on at the Newcastle Arena this weekend called Pins and Needles, I am in two minds whether to have a look or not. I have been there the last couple of times and I was disappointed I don't know why I keep going to tell you the truth.
My Mum has been buying herself a blood pressure machine.....I told her not to because if it was high she would worry, but she has a mind of her own my mother and takes no notice of me lol lol.....anyway if it keeps her mind occupied so be it. I still feel like a child when I'm in my mother's company, but to my mind she is always right, even if she is a million mile wrong I never contradict her. She keeps all the family right, dishing out advice, keeping them in line from the oldest to the youngest great grandchild and woe betied anyone who doesn't listen to her.

Here is my scrapbook page using my cricut.
I used the Walk in my Garden for the flowers which were painted with H2O's and decoupaged, flower power, patchwork made with love, willow cottage, (butterfly and dragonfly new designs coming soon) all from Willow Designs. The 8" x 8" scrapbook backing paper from the Springtime cd also from Willow Designs.
I really did enjoy making this scrapbook page, there were so many different techniques involved, I could have also used some stamping and embossing but I don't think I could get it onto the page lol lol

I awoke during the night and I couldn't get back to sleep because I was so upset and I got up this morning and she wasn't there lying in her usual place, that set me off again.
I console myself that she has had a wonderful life, she was the apple of my eye and got most of her own way lol lol.
I will never forget her, she was a wonderful friend to me and my family and it was a priviledge to have known her for thirteen years.
