Card for a Boy!

Evening all!

This is a card that I have made for a boy - well having two I have to make quite a few cards for boys, and am getting quite used to it - as you can imagine.

The image is from LOTV and I have paper-pieced the hat dungarees and bits of his shoes. The paper is by K & Co 'Hopscotch' and I have coloured the rest of the image with Promarkers.

Isn't he sweet - sometimes boys are better sleeping I think :o).

I thought this wee sentiment from Papermania suited the card to a T.

I'd like to enter the card in the following challenges

Thanks once again for looking and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

L :o)

A Card for Twins!


It's a gorgeous day here on the West Coast of Bonnie Scotland, just about to put a washing on and get it outside for a good airing. Then I'm off to a school coffee morning at my nephew and niece's school.

A girl that my OH works with had twins a few weeks ago and he asked if I could rattle up a couple of hand knitted things for her, and well - I just had to make a card to go along with them. This is the card I came up with:

I've never made a card for twins before, and am quite chuffed with the results. The stamps are by LCI (the sentiment is from the same set) I used a sheer ribbon and the buttons are laced through with embroidery floss. I used one of my new Spellbinders that I pur-chased at the SECC a few weeks ago for the die cutting and Promarkers to colour. Papers are from Forever Friends 'For You'.

I stamped the baby onto a piece of scrap card and cut out a wee mask. Stamped the baby on the left onto my base card, masked it with the cut-out and stamped it again. Haven't used masking much with my stamps, so am dead chuffed with the results, looks like the baby on the left is reassuring the one on the right with her wee hand :o). I used a little bit of glamour dust on the little zippers (can't really tell from the picture).

This is the wee sentiment. Ain't it cute! Used another nestie for the die cutting, but the rectangles kinda get on my nerves, coz when you try to layer with them the are a bit bigger on one side, so I hand cut round the pink matting card to make it even.

This is one of the two wee cardigans I made. Love knitting baby cardi's as you can rattle them up in no time. I also made hats but forgot to take pictures of them - doh!

Hope the parents like them and the babies are nice and cosy in their cardi's and hats.

Crafty Day at the SECC!

It was a Friday, weather wasn't that great, so what better place to spend the day that at the SECC with some good friends and loads of crafty goodies!

I did my duty volunteering at the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice stand, selling some raffle tickets for a great cause, after already spending some pennies on craft goodies, and then continued to shop. Here are some of the goodies I purchased:

I have wanted the Lavinia 'Fairy Door' for a while now - and now I have it :o) . The Pepper and Friends stamps were just a wee £1 each and the teddy stamps were two for £9.99 (other stands had them for £9.99 each - so got a true bargain there). Also got some new Sugar Nellie stamps and Lily of the Valley ones too! I also picked up a Rhinestone setter and some Rhinestones to have a wee play with. Can't wait to start using them all. Ross is out with his dad at the moment, but keeps popping his head in the door (scared in case he misses something that one :oD

Got other bits n bobs too, but tidied up my craft stash last night (I know - why bother ey) and dunno where it all is now hahaha - can feel the hysteria setting in....

Thanks for sharing in my stash!


I'm Back!

Afternoon bloggers.

Had put my back out - all that carrying of a 3 year old has finally taken its toll. So sitting typing at PC wasn't my first thought.

Feeling much better now after a course of anti-inflammatories from a v kind doctor.

There is some fantastic blog candy on offer over at Crafty Mess, a lovely new blog, that will be starting some challenges soon.

Here's a sneak peak of it!

Isn't it fabby! Pop over to Crafty Mess here to have a look for yourself and join in with the fun!

Will be back shortly with some goodies that I bought from the SECC on Friday (what a lovely day of shopping with Alison and June and a wee visit to my friend Pat's stand too). Will also be back with a couple of cards I made recently.

See ya real soon!
