Negative die cuts

Wooo two posts in a week what on earth is going on!!!
When I  posted my LOTV card yesterday I noticed I hadnt posted my Mothers Day cards.
So this is the first:
I got my first alpha dies from PTI and just had to have a try at negative die cutting.
I am super pleased with this card because it is all CAS! Lol.
Not sure whether Gran appreciated how many times I had to cut out her name
 because I kept getting it skew wif lol!
What I used:
PTI - Modern Alphabet dies
PTI - Hibiscus Burst cardstock and tampers select cardstock
Lawn Fawn sentiment
Doodlebug Designs pearls.
I would like to enter this into

So I'm still not packed oops! And I leave tomorrow double oops!!
Hope you all have a great Easter weekend!!!

Spring Colours!

Wow long time no post!
Sorry girlies! Life just seems to get in the way all of the time lately especially as
Iv been bumped up from part time to full time and have triple the amount of responsibilities (I know that doesn't add up but take it from me I have been given soooo much more!). I kinda like it in a way because it makes me think that Senior Management obv think that I am capable well maybe!? Lol.
Anywho its been quite a while since I have made a card so when I saw the
Spring Colours over at Lilis Little Fairies I challenged myself (because that's the point right!?) to make a LOTV card so stuck my hand in my stamp drawer and pulled out this cutie.
Its his/hers first inking too which is very shameful!
 I put lots of stickles on the flowers and the spots on the bow
although its pretty hard to see!
Its a pretty plan and simple card but my head was just not in it
to make anything more complicated.
Hopefully Ill get back into the groove soon!
What I used:
LOTV stamp  - Patchwork Present
LOTV paper - Bonnets and Bowties
PTI - Spring Rain cardstock
LOTV sentiment stamp - Greetings Postmark
Circle nestie die cut
5 by 5 card blank
Promarkers and Flexmarkers
 Pearl brad, WOC flowers,
Hobby House pearls, Stardust Stickles.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Passion for Promarkers - Bingo (die cuts, free, glitter).
Lilis little fairies - Spring Colours.
So Easter hols at the moment and I'm off to Brighton this weekend for a dear friends wedding - I cant flipping wait!!!!!!!!!!
So should probs get organised as  don't even have a suitable dress eeeek!
Hope you're all well :)
