Buckets of Love !

Good Morning!
Today I am sharing my second Monthly card for the LOTV DESIGN COLLECTIVE.
Last week the stamps I treated myself to in the LOTV Flash Sale arrived and I knew that the first stamp I inked up would have to be this cutie! 
This is an older design called 'Buckets of Love' and it even comes with the sentiment below the image. I have paired it with some fresh papers from the 'Up, Up & Away' set also by LOTV. 
Unfortunately you can't see it on the photograph but I have highlighted the bubbles and water with Glossy Accents to give the water more dimension. Oh and lastly this is also the card I will be giving to my Partner next month for his Birthday :)

Champagne & Cupcakes !

Good Morning!
Today's card is one that I made earlier in the week as a request. 
The recipient is going to America so the image had to be one that was celebratory and also by Stamping Bella! I chose this slightly older design that is versatile enough for many occasions! 
I added a little White Distress Paint to the Stars as I felt they needed just a little finishing touch.

My Mum's Craft Shop - Teacup Sailing !

Good Morning!
Today's card is one that I shared over on the MMCS BLOG earlier in the week. 
I was lucky enough to use one of the new House Mouse Designs and I have to admit the card has turned out different to what I'd planned! The design is rather large so it wouldn't fit in any of my Nesties, however I wasn't going to let this stop me and decided to make the image the whole focus of the card. The sentiment is from a Stamping Bella Stamp but don't worry as this is also available over on the website.
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges -
