Aww, New Baby Girl....

It's another post from me- and with it comes this pretty, cute little card made from the Crafter's Companion Paintbox Poppet CD elements!  using everything from papers, tags, insert & envelope from the CD.  I've  also added ribbon, button & gems from  my own stash! (Oh, I used some gingham pink paper from my stash also). The tags have been personalised with baby's name, birth date & her weight & length.  I loved putting all this together and it helped a lot by being all PINK! Love it! 

I was asked by my B.I.L  to make him this card  for a lady who has had a baby girl - & only after having given the card to my  B.I.L, I learnt how special this card was to be, as the new Mum herself had lost quite a few pregnancies  before this beautiful, cute little baby girl  arrived into the world.  So, not only am I  pleased with how the card came out - I am so very pleased & happy, to know that this little girl arrived safe & soundly into the world.  I wish her Mum & Dad so much happiness with their new Daughter.

Ok, just a short one.  Off to do some chores before resuming more card making!

How's your day going?

Until next time,

Time for tea?

Helloooo!  Here I am again, with another card to show !

Everything, apart from the doilies, red rose and my own text (& table & light switch that I drew), is from the Polkadoodles CD- Sundae of Seasons - I so love this CD of yummy niceness - and working with red & white was more a pleasure than a challenge - I just love those two colours together!

Anyway, hope you likey?

I'm off to link up this card with the challenge.  Fingers crossed I get to do it right!

Until next time,

Mandy :)

Have a wonderful day!

I'm back!  I've spent this rainy, cold day in a place I love best - yep, my craft room - & the picture below is what I got to play around with.

Mr Postie delivered the stamps & papers from Polkadoodles Pen & Paper circle 2 on Friday gone, and I've only got around to playing with the stamps & papers today.  The stamps are 'scrummylicious', along with using the gorgeous papers - I've had so much fun! AND, for the first time also, I made my own paper flowers (with the help of Marianne esigns flower dies)! I also used Glossy accents on the dragon flies and part of the bird house, plus bow & heart.  I did a bit of chalking on my card base to match the backing papers. I used my PM's to colour the flowers, bird, dragon flies and tree branch & tree house - I'm still learning to use my PM's & having fun in the process - takes me back to the days of felt tips & colouring books!  So all in all, I'm pretty chuffed at how my card turned out!

How has your day been today, have you been crafty enough to make anything?

Until next time....

Busy, Busy...


I'm just wondering whether today's weather is going to make it's mind up...well, I guess being British weather then may be not!  We've had beautiful sunshine this morning, and now, its grey and raining heavily!
Card 1

I've made two new 'New Home' cards, one of our neighbour's who moved yesterday & the second card is for the new family that has moved into her old house! I hope they like them.  These two cards were made using a digi from CraftsUprint  & backing papers from my stash. I've decoupaged the flowers and cute birds - and added 'New home' text from rub-on and peels offs from my stash!  I'm quite liking how they turned out.  The pic doesn't do them justice (prob my non-camera skills played a part in that!)

Card 2

..well, that's it for now.  Thanks for dropping by! Don't be frightened to leave a comment.  All comments gratefully received! haha.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Until next time, 

Mandy :)
