Making babies!

No, not me, lol, but I have had an order from a friend of my mums, who runs a Mother and Toddler club, for a supply of new baby cards. This is a theme I enjoy doing, so have got quite a few ideas and when I found this sentiment that I had saved a while back, I thought it would be perfect and also just right for this weeks SIMPLY LESS IS MORE "Monogram" challenge. Must go and put the finishing touches to my dad's fathers day card, so will catch you all later xx

Good Morning Blogfriends!

Feeling a bit weary this morning, as my neighbours were having a rather loud party last night that didnt quieten down till nearly 4am - not great when my poor hubby had to get up and go to work at 5am!!!! Anyway, grumbles aside, hope you are all fine.

Have been playing paper-peicing again (cant get enough of it, lol). This is Lily and she is from Digi stamp boutique (quite an oldie now, bless her!), dp from stash ?, flower punch is woodware and have added card candi, butterfly punch is also woodware and have added baby blue liquid pearls, MS border punch used, and finally sentiment done on pc, font is called Smitten Kitten.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained........

Good Evening, hope you all had a good, and not too soggy weekend.

Spotted in my newsfeed earlier, a DT call for Pollycraft. I skipped passed it at first, but then I thought, well, if you dont even try........., so I downloaded the two wonderful freebies and away I went. The DP's used here are from Serif "picnic in the park" and were a freebie in the last edition of SC&P. The sentiments are my own creations.

wish me luck xx

Im still a little girl at heart!

One of my favourite crafty things to do is "Paper piecing", which Im fairly certain is a throwback to me, playing with paper dolls when I was a little girl........I wonder if any one my blog friends can remember chopping up the back cover of the Bunty comic???
Found this yummy paper in amongst my stash and thought it would be PP Perfect!

Happy Sautrday from me!

Yay, its Saturday again, and even though the sun hasnt quite got his hat on yet, im glad its the weekend! We are off to the Dickens Festival in Rochester this afternoon (its an annual event here which celebrates the life and works of Charles Dickens, who lived and wrote in the town for much of his life) and whilst its always fun to go to, I am also looking forward to a cheeky mooch around Francis Iles Craft shop in Rochester high st too!

So, onto a card which was an order from a work friend for a ruby anniversary card.
I also thought that this would also lend itself well to this weeks LIM challenge, the theme of which is "Monochrome"- I hope I can get away with the black text and the silver charm though.

Have a great day all!
