When I saw these weeks cue card at CASology just had to use this baby shoes,just love them! Have done them in pink before but instead of blue decided to use an aqua colour (SU pool party) ,just to be different :-) and used vintage sepia ink to stamp with not so harsh as black.
Felt it was a bit bland so stamped over some hearts to put in all that white space at the top and there you have it ,one baby card to add to the collection!
Thanks for taking the time to come over and have a look x

New home card

Can you  believe that this card has literally taken me weeks to make!and I have made so many attempts that have just had to be binned, that I was on the point of buying one -yeah I know cover your ears  girls!
It's for a close friend and work colleague, who is moving  into her own place and I wanted to make her a card that was girlie, but still a new home card .I have looked and looked on the internet for inspiration but nothing fit the bill.I was at a SU party on Sun (had a great day and learned a new technique ,if your interested our demonstrator was Aileen of Stamp up Your Craft click on the link to take you to her blog) and had even asked the girls there - no joy but came home and love SU melon mambo card so basically made the card with it and then added bits as I went a long!
 The sentiment was going to read 'Home is Where the Heart is' but it was too long, so made the card look out of proportion.
It is a very simple card ,but I kinda like it what do you think?

CAsology -Family


This weeks Casology challenge fitted perfectly with a card I had to make for my nephew this month  ,don't you just love that when it happens! my nephew turns 39 this year and has always hankered for a motor bike so that made it an easy card to make as I just happen to have the Su motor bike stamp!!.
I coloured it with denim blue promarkers and the sentiment is computer generated.
It's been hot here in Aberdeen and I have spent the day outside with the children from our nursery class and now looking forward to starting the weekend with a glass of wine and my sons homemade cottage pie .
Have a great weekend  x

Brown and Pink

 Pink and Brown

Whenever I saw this weeks Less is More challenge I knew what I wanted to do problem was didn't have the stamps that I needed to do it!...that was until Suze told me about a craft shop that was closing down so hot footed out there yesterday and they had exactly what I needed (and some extra that I didn't - well they were a bargain!)

I used a cuttle bug folder for the embossing for the card,the baby shoes image is a fiskers clear set stamped in vintage sepia and coloured with a SU marker pen in blushing bride and the tiny tag is a SU one again with vintage sepia.

Still baby sitting for our neighbours so that their dad can visit mum in hospital, poor Maureen had to have another op on Fri so will try and comment but if I don't manage to apologies to one and all x
