Here's a couple for ya. Not sure what I've done with my pics here but they dont look quite right, so please excuse the not- fab photography!!! Dreadful lighting - grrrr !!

This one is for this weeks Papertake Weekly challenge which is based on a sketch by the very talented Katharina. I used an Alota stamp - I so love these stamps - and coloured it in using Prismas. NOT happy with the colouring in, but there ya go!! The pink papers are Andrea's Kaboodle Doodles Pink & Blue paper pack, the grey stripey paper is PP, the ribbon is Poppicrafts and the cute lil button brads are Making Memories.
And just when you were thinking I had been surgically removed from my Martha Stewart border punch ..........

oooohhh no. Here is it again lolxx

This is a card I did for my niece Samantha and her partner Jim who have just had the most gorgeous baby boy. Welcome to the world, Haydn James.

The papers are PP and the frothy organza ribbon is from the very depths of my ribbon box and the ric rac is from Creative Pastimes. Button brads are Making Memories.

TFS and have a nice day xxxx
