Sweet Baby Girl

Success at last! I have tried several times to load this card but for some reason it wouldn't. Now I don't know how to crop it which it needs. Never mind I'll leave it for now so you can see  I do enjoy stamping too.
This pretty baby is from Lili of the Valley stamps and has been coloured with Promarkers.
I'm off on holiday tomorrow for a couple of weeks but I'm taking stamps and pens with me just in case I get bored. I'm also taking my laptop so I can play around with Craft Artist and all the new digikits I have loaded onto it but not had time to use.

Another cat Mother's day card

I am trying to paint the dining room - not the easiest thing as it is so full of bits and pieces that just don't have a home of their own. I've had to paint two walls first so I can then shift everything to the other side before I can do the other two walls. This is how I work in my craft room too! I have two 4' desks side by side and end up working in a space about 12" x 15" - the size of my cutting mat.

I have used this cute kitten to make another Mother's Day card but it would make a lovely card for any age or occasion.

Mother's Day Card

  The white and blue makes a clean, crisp finish to this card that I love.
The cat image is just adorable and has been layered up ( only 3 layers ) to give some depth.

Shoes and bags request

I was asked to make a card with either bags or shoes, neither of which are my usual style so I was a little stumped until I remembered this La Pashe image.

Cone flowers and butterflies

I've been up for a while this Sunday morning and already made a couple of wedding cards using the fantastic Jane Shasky CD from Joanna Sheen. I held off buying the CD as I thought "not another floral CD" but I'm glad I bought it. This card is made using it - I love these Cone flowers but can never get them to grow in my garden. 

Beautiful Magnolia flowers decoupaged and '50' glittered make an eye-catching special birthday card.

Sailor boys

I have been so busy completing card orders that I haven't had time to post on my blog for a few days. Hubby doesn't say anything but I'm sure he'd rather I was doing some work around the house instead!
I made this card for my Niece who has a 5 year old son who is gorgeous, she shares a house with a friend who has 2 older boys too so I thought this was appropriate.

Cat in a Bag

The photo doesn't do this justice, it is a combination of gentle pink and soft brown.
