Crafting on a Rocky Road

My crafting seems to have hit a rather rocky patch, so it seemed a good idea to roll with it when making my cards for Leo's Crafty Templates samples this month, and make them all Rocking cards!

This month's templates are the usual lovely mix of quirky and fun ideas that we expect from Leo -  she always manages to come up with so much inspiration for making fun cards and other projects - and her templates leave plenty of room for letting your own creativity fly.

I've used:
From Crafty Templates and Goodies Kit: "Candles" Template, 
All Papers & some buttons from Crafty Goodies Kit
From stash: buttons, flowers, Stickles (Yellow, Gold), home made rub on sentiment
Rocker card base is an oval shape folded in half

I've used: 
From Crafty Templates and Goodies Kit: "Spring Birdie" Template, 
Papers from Crafty Goodies Kit,  Basket made with scraps of yellow card from the kit
From stash: Ruffled gingham ribbon, turquoise ribbon, punched flowers, 
Liquid Pearls (white, red), ink, black brad.

I've used: 
From Crafty Templates and Goodies Kit:: "Two Little Chicks" Template, 
All Papers from Crafty Goodies Kit
Spellbinders Lacey Circle die, Inner circle cut on Craft Robo, border made with circle punch, Sentiment rub on as before.

This last one is my favourite, I love these little chicks and I love the peach and mint green colours together.  This template would be fab for so many card types - I've added hearts to make a wedding or anniversary card, but it would also work for a card with a musical theme - or just a card to say "hello"

Well, as I've had a rather lazy morning sitting here, browsing the interweb, catching up on DCM commenting,  and a bit of "window" shopping I suppose I should try to be a bit more productive this afternoon. 

BTW watch out for the Easter Sale over on Funky Hand :
25% off everything sale on the Funky Hand website from 10am Friday 22nd April until 10pm Monday 25th

That's all for now, time to kick the Bad Fairy of Procrastination out of the house!
