The mouse in the shoe

Hi All, here is my post for today and I have to say a big thank you to for letting me copy one of her layouts. I had all the materials but no inspiration as to what to do.

Thanks Jules, this is a card made from toppers and backing paper to Bertricx Potter- Appley Dapply's Nursery Rhymes. I have a jewellery party for an 11 year old girl who likes blue, Yes sorry its blue again. It seems that I am doing blue a lot at the moment.

Hope you enjoy and you pop back soon.

5 Little ducks went swimming one day

Hi All, here is my latest creation. I have made this card for one of my little swimmers who was one this week.

The duck backing paper and topper are from Jemima Puddle duck CD. The other is from my card stock.

I got the idea of doing the ribbon circle on the top left from the Beatrice Potter papercraft CD.

Hope you like it, thank you for popping in and hope to see you again soon.

Pretty in Pink

Afternoon all. Here is a card that I did for my friend yesterday.

My best friend Lynne has just got a new job so I thought I would put the skills I have learnt from my mum Jacqui to the test. It was lonely carding without mum as she went home yesterday, but I am proud at what I have produced.

The backing paper is from Zoo and the stamps are ones that I got free with the creative stamping magazine.

Hope you enjoy, please pop in again soon.
