Card for Kyla xxx


I think this is soooo sweet xxx
Yes, the birthday girl is 3 today and I can hardly believe it, bless her.
As I told you yesterday, I hadn't got her card made and I still hadn't at gone 10 last night - shameful I know. Don't know about you, but if I am going to get a block, it is usually when I really want to do something nice. Maybe I just try a bit too hard and it doesn't happen, I don't know. But it is sooooo annoying.

So I was in and out of my room last night, looking at this and looking at that and none of it was quite what I wanted.

Then ............ eureka - ka - ka - ka!!!!

I remembered that I had got a Pollycraft download, the Phoebe and Maude Spring Kit, and as soon as I saw it, I knew that this baby was gonna save my bacon. So, together with my ever fave PP Little Fleurs and Mini Little Dots paper (plus a bit of fab doodle stripes I had left over from the other day), some ribbon and buttons from my stash, I set to work. The only thing I was missing was a sentiment and 5 minutes on the old puter and Word Art soon sorted that one.

Et voila.

You will notice that one of the usual suspects is missing from my 'what I used' list, and you'd be right.

Ayy, I have made no mention of PMs (although there is Glamour Dust on here). That's cos these beauties are already coloured!!
Marvellous :)))

So the whole thing couldn't have taken me more that 15 minutes, and I don't think it's turned out too bad considering the piddly amount of time spent .


'Ere's the funny angle again lol xxx

So she opened it this morning and I think she liked it, but she probably loved her giftage more I susect lol xxx

And I just had to share this with you. The other kids in her pre-school class made this card for her. They have all made a little piece of it and the nannies have stuck them all together.

Awww how sweet, cos they are only dinkies after all, bless them.

I'm orf to have a play with some fabulous new stamps I got this morning, plus get me stuff sorted cos I am demo-ing tomorra at Creative Pastimes (Pro Markers at 11am if you are about) so have a great day and a brilliant weekend.

Luv 'n' hugs xxxxx
