Baby Girl card

Hi Everyone, I hope you are all having a great Bank Holiday weekend?....... We did the Car Boot this morning and I met a lot of lovely craft related people and I have made more new friends too, I have exchanged email adresses with a few too. All the money we raised was meant to be for our holiday fund in 2 weeks time, but Hubby said I could keep it all!! He's just the best husband in the world!!! Anyway, goodness I am ranting!!! Rachelle Anne Miller stamp I have used before but it's so gorgeous I have used it again, this time on a baby girl card. I can't remember what the papers are, but I got them from Crafts U Love, I coloured with Prismas and sansodor and chalked around the edges, bit of cutting and doodling, sticky back pearls also from Crafts U Love... matted with Mirri Card and cut with Nesties hope you like...... Also... do you like my new header? thanks to Tracey for the little tip she gave me..

Thanks to the lovely Kim Fee for pointing this out... I'm sooo blonde sometimes... I didn't even spot it, another card in the Cardmakers Yearbook 2009 gallery from the other day!! again the photo is not too good...
Hubby and I have just finished loading the car up for the Horley Car Boot Sale tomorrow morning so early rise for us (6.00am), have lots of craft stuff to sell if you're in the area....

Have a nice Bank Holiday weekend everyone.
Edited to say, the English weather let us down this morning, although it's nice and sunny now, at 0600 this morning it was chucking it down!! so we went back to bed and will do the car boot tomorrow on Bank Holiday Monday now! weather forecast is good, so fingers crossed!

I won some Blog Candy & another prize

Wow, it's been one of those days today, first bit of great news was from Shelly, link also on my blog roll, I won her fabulous Blog Candy!!!! Thanks Shelly!! I have emailed you. If you haven't already seen her blog, go take a look, she does great things with Pink Petticoat stuff!

Second bit of news was waiting for me when I got home. There was a new Magazine came in the post that I hadn't ordered........ then I found a compliment slip, and it said 'for my entry in the readers gallery...... it turns out to be an old card that i made for a competition ages ago! So here it is;

I have to say that it has not been photographed very well, the base was actually pale blue Bazzill Bling and the yellow strip across the centre was pale yellow and the scrolls which hardly show up were pale green. The flowers were stamped in various colours then cut out and stuck to the scrolls..... never mind. You get the picture anyway...... I love days like this!!!! keep em coming!!

My Craft Room

Hi everyone, thought I'd post some pics of my little craft room, this is what's behind me where I keep my sewing machine and die cutting stuff. The square thing on the wall to the left is a magnetic sticky back sheet and i have put my nesties and other metal dies on it. works really well.
this pic is to the left of my desk; stamps, flowers etc on there;

this is a bit further along;
this is the other corner;
and this is my cricut and guillotine and the unit underneath is where I keep all my papers. Hubby recycled it and we bought the trays that slide in fro Ikea.

This final pic is of my new little Mackinac Moon organiser, they also come in blue from Crafts U Love. Have a great weekend everyone.

Cute little Bunny

Hi everyone, quick card from me today, the Bunny is from the Sandylion clear stamp set that I bought, I just shaded the pink areas then stamped the image again onto doublesided sticky sheet, cut out then stuck to the original image, sprinkled with white fun flock (in true Wendy Horrod style!!). Not sure if it shows in the photo? The background papers are DCWV, used circle punch and nesties. The little daisys at the bottom were punched from a paint chart in graduating shades of pink, added stickles to the centres, doodling and 3 bows to finish. Hope you like......

New Rachel Ann Miller stamp...

OK, here it is as promised...... the new Rachel Ann Miller stamps, well one of them anyway..... I bought from Crafts U Love. I found a tutorial on the web here at Stampin Owls' Blog. I used Bazzill Bling for the base card and Stampin' Up! paper on the outer folds. White Safety Pins from Queen&Co and I think the Little One stamp was from a little Imaginisce set....... I think maybe the mat bazzill card would have been better for the base as the folds would be crisper I think. Coloured the tortoise in with Prismas and Sansodor and blended with paper stumps. the stick on pearls I bought from Crafts U Love. Hope you like and hope you are all having a great weekend, it's sunny here at the moment and quite warm, hope it stays like that!!! Bye for now....

Hi everyone, hope you all had a great week, yay it's the weekend!! I just been to Crafts U Love and they have just taken delivery today of the new Rachel Ann Miller stamps, I had to buy some, they are sooooooo gorgeous, will make a card with one of them tonight. Weight Watchers update.... stayed the same weight this week!!! still....... better than putting it on I suppose!! must try harder next week!!!

This exploding box card is a commission for a colleague, his son lives in Seattle and has just adopted a little girl called Micki, so they wanted something to say Welcome to the family and my brief was, pink, Lilac, girlie princess, so here's what I came up with. They are flying over there next week, so don't have to worry about posting it!! I'm not sure what brand the stamps are as I got them in a swap with Nikki, Bunny Zoe, but they are so cute! Hope you like....
