Wiggly Giggly Baby girl !!

Well my paper trimmer is well and truly capish !! I am now waiting for a new cutting rod so I cut straight lines without raggedy edges !!! lol !!! So .............. it kicked me out of my rut and made me create some shaped cards using my dies !!! Its just too easy to do square !! Not only did  I get kicked out of my rut I also got some renewed enthusiasm !! So much so I did my Saturday Cuddly Buddly stuff early !!! lol ! I even made two cards instead of the required one !!!

For this card  I got out my trusty Grand Calibur and made the easel card using dies. The paper and the image is from baby Girls Bath and Bedtime The ticket sentiments are BRILLIANT !!! They are Wee Ones Ticket Sentiments. The leaves are Marianne Die LRo156 and of course I had to add some pearl gems and stickles glitter (star Dust). Flowers and ribbon from my stash !!

Then I went on to make this card !!! I used Marianne Die Frame Circle for the card and the paper is from Cottage collection - Rose. The leaves are the larger from the Marianne Die LRo156 and the sentiments are more from the Wee Ones Ticket Sentiments.

Well the only person who I know is having a baby is having a girl ........ but I now have 6 cards made !!! lol !! I just am so addicted to them!!! lol !! Well Hope you like them !!!
Happy crafting !!!

Lazy Days !!

Oh how I wish for a lazy day laid in the grass reading my book ........... ah well maybe one day !
This week for Cuddly Buddly I used Toby Tumble Happy Easter, but not for an Easter card ! It is a 3d decoupage image but I just used the picture layer as my scissors broke !!! Mmm great !!! Then my paper cutter decided not to cut straight !!! GREAT !!!!!!!! lol !!

I used Toby Tumble Floral Boquet papers ....... yummy !! You will see these again !!! Very versatile ! I also used Marianne Dies, Bird and FenceBird and Grass and Tree LR0203. The sentiment is part of the 3D sheet ! of course I glittered the flowers up for some bling with Stickles Star dust!!

Just love the Toby Tumble Range, I reckon you may be seeing more !! He is just so sweet !! lol !
Well, hope everyone enjoys the weekend, my plans have been rained off......... we were having a softball tournament on the Knavesmire about 60 of us and a picninc ! So I guess its Monoploy and a film !
Happy crafting everyone !!

Its a girl !!!!


Well ............. I have been inspired by Coops and Pops !! I just COULDN'T resit this wonderful Wild Rose Stamp !! And the Cottage Rose papers from CUDDLY BUDDLY !! They are both so gorgeous !!

Wow this stamp is so easy to colour !! I haven't had my promarkers out in a while and I thought I might struggle !! So I started off using Coops card as an inspiration making one similar but different ! Then I got the Cuddly Buddly papers and made my own and of course by then I was on a roll so  I got my LOTV stamp out too !!!

I used a Dohickey die for the tag and Whimsy stamps for the bunting !! OOh I am so into bunting right now !!! lol ! You should see my garden it covered from the Jubilee !! I just don' t want to take it down !!

My neighbour is having a baby girl next month so I know she will be getting one of these !!! Not sure which one tho !! lol !!!
