Anyway, I had some lovely surprising in the post to put a smile back on my face. My new penny black stamps arrived from HM Stamps and I also ordered the magnolia chair and some EZ mount from Joanna Sheen.
Also my nestabilities arrived from Cuts @ Home, worked out about £33 for the set of 4 and also my Pink Cat Studio stamps. Just waiting for another delivery of Penny Black stamps and also the Lola & Simon Sugar Nellie stamps, also putting in my pre-order for the gorgeous new Little Cotton Rabbit set!
Looking forward to a crafting day tomorrow and catching up on some challenges.

I covered a square card with lilac paper from Pink Petticoat and then added a strip of lilac c.s. and another lilac paper from Pink Petticoat across the centre of the card. I then stamped maggie with her flowers and used a mixture of watercolour and paperpiercing. She is then mounted onto lilac card and added to the left had side of the card. Finished with a Craftwork card greeting and white flower secured with a papermania jewel brad.

Anyway, I needed to make a card for a teenage girl and I really haven't been in a creative mood this week, so I thought I would keep it simple!! The stripy paper I have had for ages and I love the colours as its so bright and girly and it will suit the papertake weekly challenge to use stripes. Theses embellishments matched it perfectly and I used a greeting from Craftwork Cards.
I thought this layout was great for using little embellishment, so I made a couple of baby cards using Crafty Bitz embellishments.

I used an image from Jo at Only Joking, coloured using Derwent watercolour pencils and then cut out. I mounted her to white c.s. and then pink c.s. and glittered her wings. I then added bright pink c.s. to the left hand side, black chiffon ribbon from this months Little Silver Hat kit and pink heart buttons. The swirly paper is from Pink Petticoat and I cut it with the attachment on my new guillotine/paper trimmer. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and I added 3 little heart jewels to the bottom right hand corner.
I pleased to say that the winner is Michelle at Card Grotto. He loved the simplicity of the design (lets hope that wasn't why he choose to marry me!) and the cute little elephant on the front. Michelle, can you let me have your address and I will get your goodies posted out to you.
I used old peel offs or embellishments and put together a few yesterday.

I coloured this Penny Black image that Natty K gave me last Sunday night in front of the telly and I thought it fitted the bill. I then mounted it onto yellow and orange c.s. and also mounted a Pink Petticoat sentiment the same. I then embossed yellow c.s. and added this to orange c.s. Orange primas attached with yellow brads finished the card. I've used the layout loads, but just wanted to say big thanks to Michelle at Card Grotto as it was inspired by her layout originally.

Anyway I have put together a little girly kit, with some of my favourite papers and images from Pink Petticoat, ribbons, brads, jewels, buttons, tags and flowers.
I would like you to make a baby card, boy or girl as they are just my favourite ones to make. I will leave this open until Saturday 9th February and then get my hubby to choose his favourite (sure he will be pleased).
NB - I've been asked if this is open to overseas and yes it is, anyone is more than welcome to enter. Also can I please ask that it is new work that you submit. Thanks
Another NB - I've been asked if you can enter my blog candy if you don't have a blog. Yes this is no problem, just e-mail a picture of your card to email@example.com

I've seen loads of concertina tags, but it took a couple of goes before I got it right!!!! The tag was cut with the traditional Super tag die on my big shot, I've then covered it with this lovely checked paper from the Aspen range from Karen Neuburger. I then cut out the MUM from flowery paper from the same range of Aspen paper, plant pots out of blue card and fixed them together with wire. I then added blue chiffon ribbon to each tag.
I also made a smaller traditional tag from the same paper and cut our MUM in blue card and added thinner chiffon ribbon.
