Super Quick Magnolia Card


A little time has passed since my last post, but Ruby is now 12 1/2 weeks old and time is just flying by.  I just hope my remaining months off work don't go so quick.

Last night I made a card for my Auntie and Uncles wedding anniversary.  My Mum had reminded me about this card last week but I didn't make it and it was left till the last minute, but anyway I had these two images coloured up since before I had Ruby so I thought I may aswell use them.

It was a super quick card and I used my new Prima 6 X 6 paper pad called "Divine".

The lovely buckle is a Bella! Ribbon Bucklez and I think it really makes the card. A simple sentiment stamped in Distress Ink and there you go....

and of course,  I couldn't post without putting on a picture of my little beaut...... check that little smile out!  She has really come along over the last couple of weeks and is smiling, laughing and following me around the room.  Its her second lot of injections tomorrow so no doubt she won't be in a good mood tomorrow after those! 

I will hopefully be back soon!

Valentines Card


I am back with a card that I have made for a few challenges.

I have used my new Tilda from the Christmas Collection just gone, another late purchase in the sale! 

I have used my new Magnolia papers which I love and I followed the sketch at Live & Love Crafts.  The hearts a bargain buy from Poundland for a bag full!  They are great to use for my valentines orders.   

I love the sentiment too which is also Magnolia.  The challenges I am entering this card into are listed at the bottom of this post, but I also wanted to share my first scrapbook page of Ruby having her first bottle, approximately 1 hour after she was born

I want to try and get back into my scrapbooking and this I hope is the first of many.  I want to do at least 1 page per month to scrap her first year and this was January's! 

I hope you like my card and page!

Challenges (for my card):-

Love, Lace & First Smile

Evening everyone,

I am back with a card that I have made to take part in the DOC Challenge #44 and the theme this week is "Love & Lace"

I have used Tilda Spinkling Stars which I have only recently bought in the sale at my local craft shop.  I love her because I think she can be used for any occasion and not just Christmas.

 I have used my Prima Annalee papers which I have not used because I wanted to keep them, but I want to start using my stash even the things I would want to save for something special because you can go on forever saving things and then they never get used - what a waste of money!!!!

Here is a close up of the image coloured with my Promarkers.  I am not really happy with the hair colouring but never mind.

 And before I go and link up my card to the DOC I wanted to share a picture of my little lady laughing!  She has really come along over the last week or so and has started to take notice of me and following me round the room.  She also cracks a smile for her Mummy now!
