New Blog Candy and some Hobby House Inspiration

Afternoon fellow blogging friends! How's your weekend going....if like mine not going to plan as my lazy morning seems to have crept into the afternoon:) So I am having a PJ day watching the Friends repeats that I have seen dozens of times but still find myself laughing lol....sad I know:)
I enjoyed having the grandchildren over night and they were really good, but has left me a little exhausted:(
So today I am launching another blog candy and as the previous one you can choose any Heartfelt Creations stamp and you will also get so,me Hobby House goodies and a few other crafting goodies, oh and of course one of my cards:)
As always just leave a comment below and I will include you in the random org draw:)
No pressure on becoming a follower of my blog....only if you like my work and I inspire you:)
Today I am sharing a Hobby House card which I demonstrated on Create and Craft yesterday and if you like participating in challenges The Hobby House has a new one which starts today over on the BLOG today and the theme is anything goes using a new Hobby House topper!
  • I made my card with the April Showers Card Making Kit
  • The topper is an Elizabeth Bell design.
  • The only thing that I have added that wasn't part of the kit are the leaves which are the Heartfelt Creations classic leaf die and stamp.
  • I inked the edges with a little distress ink - Tattered Rose and  finished off the card with some Stickles Glitter....!
Just a quickie today:(....Now to see if I can finish my new blog design!
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  11. Beautiful card as always Nikki, I especially love the colour combinations you have used here. Grandchildren always exhaust me as well after a sleep over so enjoy your rest you deserve it.

  12. Lovely card, very pretty. New blog is looking good, will be entering hobby house challenge when i get time as have some of the new toppers, great show yesterday.Great giveaway, thanks for being so generous, hope you are well rested, xx

  13. Hi Nikki
    I just love these toppers. However I really like to stamp and colour. So after watching your show yesterday evening will have to order a couple of these from Hobby House rather than from C & C. Wouldn't really use a lot of sheets of toppers. I always love how you put your cards together, and how they can sometimes look a bit different from the one you are demoing. That's the essence of card making I think. It makes no difference at all if the one you are producing is a bit different from the original. Love the inspiration that you always give us, and for giving us the chance to win a heartfelt creation stamp.

  14. Hi Nikki
    Gorgeous card, love the composition and colours and your signature stickles would love to know how you get such a fine line!
    Best wishes, Pat

  15. Hi Nikki, I Love your Beautiful Card, I Love how you utilise your Embellishments, as you know I'm a Stamper at heart so if I ever use toppers I like to add Stamping in also, I know some of the images from Hobby House come in Stamp form so I purchase them when I see them, I love the Colours you have chosen, thanks for sharing Nikki. Love and hugs from Sam x

  16. Morning Nikki, gorgeous card and so sweet. I must admit to prefer making girlie cards to men's as you can do so much with them and really go to town. Love the swirls and flowers too.

  17. Hi nikki. Smashing card very cutsie. Love it. Yes please for lovely blog candy
    Love Tracy from killie x

  18. Beautiful card. Love the flower and the way you have outlined it with leaves and ephemera. The little girl would make a perfect cards for my 10 yr. old granddaughter. You do such beautiful work. I love it!

  21. Hi Nikki,
    Such a very beautiful card...sorry I missed it yesterday.....the colours are just so very pretty.
    Your colouring in is just so perfect too.

    Love Sheila xx

  22. Hi Nikki, Your show was fantastic, great tips and techniques and your demo's are fabulous, I could watch you all day. I ordered the 'boy' and the 'girl' papers, as they were so cute and boys especially are really hard to make cards for haha !!
    This card is stunning, gorgeous focal image, beautiful colours and stunning compilation.
    Have a lovely day.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  23. That is a darling stamp and so well colored. Love your layout. All the embellishments are perfect for this card. I especially like the pearls on the ribbon . Well done.

  24. Hi Nikki
    Hobby House have such lovely things and the ribbon and embellishment packs are really good value, I especially like the pearls too.
    Beautiful card as always x

  25. love the subtleness of the green background which really compliments the springtime colours of the foreground, hope you get a good rest x

  29. Hi Nikki
    Another beautiful creation,love the design and layout.Enjoyed the show.
    Love Angela

  30. What a lovely card the colours are beautiful together

  31. What a delightful card. Love the colours and enjoyed your show on Friday. I have 'Friends' boxed set and they still make me laugh too. I've watched so many times I remember most of the jokes and (far too many) details. It's surprising how regularly a 'Friends situation' crops up in real life. Everyone deserves a PJ day once in a while and if you can't share it with 'Friends'.......

  32. love the little bunny Nikki and a lovely card as always x

  33. Hiya Nikki.
    As always such a pretty card. You can always tell a 'Nikki' card it just has those certain elements that point them to your design ways : )
    Am looking for a topper that shows a little girl dressing up, as I have a card to make for a special little girl who just loves dressing up ( apart from One D) a little gal with special needs, so a special HH topper is what Im needing for her : )
    Your shows were great Nikki.
    Hugs all round.
    Lancashire Steph xx

  34. What a stunning card, you always know it is a Nikki card they are all beautiful. Love this design and layout- one to try
    Loved your show missed sending in a letter as my computer was being repaired but up and running again now

  35. I just wanted to say I taped your show and have watched it several times, the cards you brought to the show were lovely, so much detail in them. I ordered the stamps with the clocks and sentiments and then ordered the die this week, they make lovely embellishments to cards in a really quick way.
    So glad that you are representing Heartfelt as their products are gorgeous and you did a great job of demonstrating, it was a lovely calm show to watch, so thankyou.

  36. Such a beautuful card - I wish I could see your shows

  37. this is a beautiful card!! love the flower and butterfly you have added..
