Baby shopping!!

Well, not shopping for actual babies, but shopping for baby stuff - what fun!  Not that I've got kids myself but I love buying for others' babies - the clothes are just so darn cute!  Anyhoo, it seems as though one my friends and family is pregnant at any one time so here's a card I made in readiness for the next one...




This gorgeous gal is called Teddy Bella and I used October Afternoon Ducks In a Row papers and I made some rolled felt flowers for softness.

That's it from me today - thanks for visiting and I'll see you soon on my blog rounds!

Everyday is a sweet treat with you!

Happy Saturday everyone!  Well I am now back from sunny Florida and what a great time we had.  The weather was perfect - hot but not too hot at 85-87 degs (that's 29-30 deg celsius to us Brits!) with a packed out itinerary including visiting the theme parks, jet skiing, swimming with dolphins and whizzing around in speed boats.  Then back home yesterday - wet, cold, grey - bleh!  But how brilliant to be back with our dogs who I missed a lot!  And of course I missed the crafting too and my crafty mates!  I'll be around later on my blog rounds to see you all once I've done all the clothes washing!

Anyhoo, I'm here today to show off some more gorgeous Quixotic Inspirations goodies!  I'm still loving my new Big Anyas so here's my DT card using The Greeting Farm - Anya Treats...





I matched her up with papers from the My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Howdy Doody pad and embellished it using My Favorite Things Die-Namics Medium Leafy Flourish die and Rolled Mum flower die.

Okay, I gotta go now - see you later on my blog rounds!

Hi everyone!  Well, my holiday in Florida is at an end and I'm probably right now driving back from the airport!  Well, fingers crossed and not stuck on a delayed flight!

So today it's time for a new Bellarific Friday and here is my Bellarific Babe DT card using one of the gorgeous Kettos...



I matched her up with My Minds Eye papers and used my CC Cutters bunting die.  Okay, so next week's challenge is a sketch. 


Don't forget to email your creations to Em at Stamping Bella by Thursday 1 November so they get posted in next Friday's post as well as a chance to win some Bella Bucks!

You are going to laugh at this one...

Have you seen this month's Whimsie Doodle's release yet?  It is fully of cuties and also a lot of fun!  Creator and owner, Melyssa, has a brilliant sense of humour and I know you're going to love this new one from her...



Are you giggling?!  This one is aptly called Family Nuts and it's perfect for my large, extended family - I'm gonna have to make several more of these! 

Okay, that's it from me today - thanks for visiting!

Calling all strong women!

Hi everyone!  I'm here today with a card using another of the new Susana Loves Stamps available in the Quixotic Paperie store...



This is my most fave of the collection!  She is called Adventure Eyes who I stamped on to my favourite Make It Colour Blending Card again and coloured in with my Copic Markers. I matched her up with My Mind's Eye Fine & Dandy Boy papers which I distressed and then inked up the edges using my Ranger Archival Ink Pad in Jet Black

I framed the sentiment using the MFT Die-Namics Well Worn Greetings Dies and for the elements I used MFT Die-Namics Vine Border and MFT Die-Namics Royal Rose die.   Because I wanted one of the flowers to be smaller than the other, I just cut off a few of the larger petals before I rolled it up.

I hope you like my card as much as I enjoyed making it!  Have a fab weekend and *see* you again soon!

Rain, rain go away!

But hey, I don't really care because I am in sunny Florida!  And if it does rain, it will be welcome as it is nice and hot here!  Anyhoo, I digress.  Today over at MilkCoffee Stamps we are showcasing their sweet digis associated with rain - so there was some sense to my post title!  Here is my DT make...

That Cyndi Lauper knew what she was talking about!

Okay, this song is gonna stick in your head for a couple of hours now!  "Girls just wanna have fu-un, ohhh girls just a wanna have fun!"  Love it.  Anyhoo, there is relevance here!  It's the sentiment to my next Bellarific Babe card...


I love these gals - just like my friends and me having a drink after work - without the loooong legs though!  This is Uptown Girls Victoria and Juliette's Night Out for Stamping Bella.  I matched her up with My Mind's Eye On The Bright Side Two papers and used My Favorite Things Die-Namics Simply Scallops Medium die and Small Scallop Border die.

I paper pieced the girls' dresses and shaded them with my Copics Cs, here's a closer look...



 That's it from me today - thanks for visiting and I'll be back on Thursday with my MilkCoffee DT post!

Hello everyone!  MilkCoffee Stamps are sponsoring the new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and I was lucky enough to be their guest designer!  The new challenge starts today with an autumn theme so here is my GDT make using Girl and Chestnut...





You know, I HATE the autumn and winter in the UK.  It's so dark and miserable.  But I do enjoy being all snuggled up in scarves, hats and boots - so this image definitely puts a smile on my face!  I matched her up with My Mind's Eye Sweetest Thing Bluebell papers and my fave Lil' Inker Designs Of the Heart Die

I hope you can join in with the challenge with a chance to win your own MilkCoffee digi stamps!  I'll be back tomorrow with my scheduled post for Stamping Bella!
