Awww, Cute As A Button :)

ed copy

This li’l fella has to be one of the sweetest ever I think, with his little baldie head and chubby cheeks – awww!!!.

And I’ve been dying to ink him up from the minute he arrived at chez piggy. He is of course one of the new Lily Of The Valley images which are just awesome. Check them all out here peeps if you haven't already seen them.

Anyhoos, sweet baby boy is so cute that I just had to use him for this week’s Cute Card Thursday challenge and this week they’ve gone all

Ribbon-tastic :)

Just up my street I thought lol!!!

Picture 002 copy So this is what I did.

I coloured sweet baby with my PMs – the newer muted colours are just perfect I think for these images. And of course you can get a fine selection of these bad boys from Tracy over at Dies To Die For.

And the gorgeous papers are all from the new Wild Rose Studio paper stacks. I used Candy Floss and Polka Dots and you can see them here.


The white organza ribbon and blue button were from my stash and I just tied a bit of twine through the button and gave it a bit of a curl .

Picture 005 copy1

A computer generated sentiment and some flat backed pearls finished it all off, and that was me done.

This is one of those cards that I really REALLY like cos it looks clean and fresh and ticks all the boxes for me. Now if you want to get your hands on a couple of these images, keep watching the pig sty peeps cos I have a feeling that there might be a bit more blog candy on the way………..

Have you seen my ugly mug in the new edition of Quick Cards Made Easy? Poor beggars if you have!!! I don’t have that many pics of me cos a) I’ve broken too many cameras and b) I cannot afford the litigation costs lol xxx That one in there does make me look like a bit of a simpleton (hold that thought perleeeeeeeeze!!). But it was the best of a bad job (yes, really). Shame isn't it!!).

It’s all about the world of blogging and I think it’s a great article and I hope that more people come and join us all in the land of Blog. I was so pleased to be asked to do it so huge thanks to the fab peeps at QCME and one other special girlie in partic who I won’t name but she knows who she is xxxx

And if you’ve read the article and have come for a little nosey and you’re reading this and wondering if you should take the plunge, then I would say GO for it because it’s a great way to share your work and there is so much inspiration to be found by visiting all the different blogs. Have a look round by clicking on the links or any of the names in our sidebars and you’ll see a wealth of styles out there.

And it really isn't that difficult to get your blog up and running. Believe me, if this dozy old thicko can do it, then so can anyone. It is a bit scary the first time you press the ‘publish’ button, but we've all had to do it and you’ll find that crafty blogger are just the best.

Well I’m off for a bit of a tidy up (my rock and roll lifestyle is something else at times!!). Kyla is going to a princess party (awww!!) and Richie Rich is working so I can get through it in no time which will then leave me more time for a bit more crafting later - it’s card club on Monday so I have the packs to prepare.

Have a fab day peeps and see ya tomorrow for another Anyone For Anya challenge. Hugs to all xxx
