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

Just to let you know that the last 2 piccies I posted won't open in the big window like they should. I am trying to sort this and getting nowhere fast, but I will keep trying. Has anyone else had this problem and if so, any clues on what I am doing wrong?
Cheers me dears xx

Anyway, enough whining Dawny!!!
Then to cheer myself up, I got Hettie out again!! I can't look at her without smiling. The paper is PP Lola's Boudoir Rainbow Collection - boudoir stripes in lovely (and it is!!) and then I used a large and small Henrietta to look like mum and baby. I finished it off with some ribbon bits, a punched flower, a bit of glitter (naturally) and a Henrietta sentiment
And that was that!!!.
Good news today is that I have lost another 2lbs - woooo hooooo!!! The total now is 10lbs so I will stick at it for another week or so and see if I can do the stone. The M & S puds are still doing my head in and IF I lose the stone, the first thing I will do is have the gooey-est one I can get my mitts on. Haaaa!!

I have had another cardy day today. I got some new stamps last week from Pink Cat (see link) and I have been dying to have a go but with one thing and another just haven't got around to it. So today I decided that as I had spent hours last night doing work on my other half's blog for him, that I would have a bit of 'me' time today and get stuck into them. Well that was the plan, but then I saw that Liz at Pink Petticoat had got another fab download - Dad's Taxis - and of course, I had to have it. Then I saw Michelle's 3-2-1 comp. So that was it - I was torn between the 3.
So I did them all - naughty naughty!!! The house is like a tip now but hey, who cares!!! So here are the fruits of my labour today. Please excuse the photography :-( I don't think David Bailey has much to worry about ........
What a fab download Dad Taxis is. Check it out peeps!! I used the leopardy one for this card and I happened to have a bit of black and white doodle stripes paper from the PP Rainbow Doodles kit and thought it looked a bit like a road for the little car to go along. So I made a little slider and the black strips push and pull it along the 'road'. A friend of mine (Annie xx) gave me some gold paper and it is really nice - lovely texture - so I used that and some gold brads to finish it off.
This one is for Michelle's comp. 3 blooms, 2 brads and 1 piece of ribbon. PP Minis big dots in pink matted onto some acid green card - I really love those colours together - and then I covered some PP monograms with some bits of other PP paper and edged them with lime green glitter. I finished it off with 3 punched flowers and 2 little green brads I got from Michelle. The ribbon was from Hobbycraft and there is a bit of bling in the centre of the flowers. It is on it's way to you Michelle xx
I am not really into stamping but I could not resist these stamps from Pink Cat - Crafty Kitty Plate 1. They are such good value, and they arrived from America within a week - awesome - and a big thanks to Melissa for fantastic service!!! I put them with the leopard print paper from PP Sweet Cupcakes and a bit of the gold paper I got from Annie. Out came the ribbons, Glamour Dust and brads to finish. I am dedicating this card to all you lovely craft queens out there.
So after all the self indulgence today, I had better go and get Richard some dinner. Bless him - he never once complains.
Have a great Saturday night folks xx

This was a card I made for Emma's birthday using up bits of Pink Petticoat papers - all from the Little Fleurs kits - plain chocolate. They are all matted onto silver card and faux stitching drawn on to lok like patchwork.
