I ordered some stamps from Funky Kits on 20th and they arrived this morning!! How speedy is that!!! I was itching to have a go this morning but there were 101 other things I just had to do and consequently by the time I sat down to have a fiddle, it was quite late and then I could not believe it but I had one of those mental blocks!!!. Is it just me that gets this or does it happen to everyone now and then? If so, how do you deal with it cos I would be interested to know. It doesn't happen very often but it's really annoying and I know that if I had sat down earlier, I would have been fine. But anyway, I persevered and eventually managed to do 2. Once again, apologies for the dreadful photography, but I just cannot seem to get it right - oh dear!!



The first one is using my new Maggie with Dotty Scarf stamp (M0706) from Funky Kits, some PP papers, PP Mini Tags (thank you again Liz - she'll know what for), and some ribbons and glitter to finish off - I am quite predictable!! It is for my daughter's friend's 2 year old and I think the stamp is just soooo cute. My little Kyla has a hat just like that, but no green wellies just yet - she has red and white spotty Fifi wellies which she adores and would wear all the time if she were allowed!!!





I really like strong colours with black and white. The big brads are from Michelle's fab Poppicrafts, the papers and punched flowers are PP and the ribbons are from my ever growing stash!!






Also got the most gorgeous lilac blooms from Creative Pastimes today which are so delicate they are almost like lace, plus some more Prima flowers (naughty naughty, but I cannot resist them) and new set of Woodware stamps, so all being well I am hopefully going to have a more productive and inspiring cardy day tomorrow.

Have a great Saturday night xx

Hi Dawny P.......
Thank you for visiting me again, you are so kind. It is always nice to get feed back.
Love the first card it is just so sweet. Lovely lovely colours.
Second card is beautifully made, but Mich will tell you I am not a bright colour card sort of person. I can of course appreciate the detail and work that goes into every one you make. I would never be able to produce anything like I see on your blogs. Its always lovely to visit. I have a goddaughter who would love the second card.
Have fun with your lovely family.
xx

Hi there!

Thanks for the visit. Yes, fab fox had tears in his eyes when he opened his card & we both bawled our eyes out with adrenalin & excitement. What a hoot -when he came out the stage door last night one young lady yelled out "Marry Me!"!!!!

I love your second card in particular. The colours seem to make my tiredness disappear & I feel ready to start again! Block -tell me about it, especially after Friday night!!!

My cure is to make something totally functional for my card box -a standard baby or thank you card copied from something I've already made- and before I know it my brain is firing with other carding ideas it wants to try. I make it wait while I finish the one I'm on. Then which ever idea is at the forefront when I finish is the one I try next. Well, it works for me!!!

You are adorable to visit & say encouraging things. It's hugely appreciated. Looking forward to seeing what you made today!
