Not at all sure about this one! But I do love the papers - Basic Grey (again!!) - this time Pheobe. This is a fantastic selection of papers - gorgeous colours! This time I've used a Dolly Mama stamp - its the mix and match one from the clear set. I love the hair! She's way too tall to fit on the card (154mm x 154mm card).
Coloured with watercolour pencils (again! - I am such a creature of habit!). This time I used my Crop-o-dile to set the eyelets and added a wee bit ribbon.
Just called this one "Relax". I've had this stamp for a while and this is the first time I've used it. I have no idea who it's by as there is no info on the stamp! I love it though - so relaxing! All that is missing is the glass of wine and some candles!
The papers are Basic Grey - Periphery. The alphabet is Sizzix "Man Oh Man".
Not sure when you would give a card like this but it was fun to make!

I'm all out of sorts and needing to keep busy - our cat is away to the vets for a scan - she was having real difficulty breathing this morning. She's old and the vet did warn us that she may not come through the scan - she has, and now we have to play a waiting game.
My enthusiasm for card making has disappeared for the moment. It will be back. Rather than totally waste the day I thought I would make a scrapbook page to make me smile - so here she is - my Princess. This was taken when we were on holiday in October.
The papers are Rhonna Farrer - French Twist. The colours are so bright and cheery.

I've started scrapbooking for a change. Sometimes I'm just not in the mood to make cards - think that's probably because I have too much stuff! I also have so many photos that are either hidden away in albums or just stored on the hard drive - I think I need to do some justice to them and make them into future memories! So I'm just starting out.. lots of practice needed I think!
I've used papers and die cuts from Deja Views.

Totally inspired by a post on Jo's blog (http://jo-kill.blogspot.com/). I love the idea of this folded over card so that you can see a bit of the inside too!
The papers are Figgy Pudding by Basic Grey. The image is from Pink Petticoat - coloured with chalks and glitter gel pens.

It's my little girls nativity play tomorrow - the first one! What state am I going to be in? I predict major tears (me, not her!). I can't even practice "little donkey" with her without getting all soppy! Oh dear! I should add, she's the rabbit (?) and she has to sit in front of the manger with the sheep. If I manage to hold it together it will be a miracle!
This is my mum's christmas card - I was really really stuck what to make so I hope she likes it! Everything on the card, with the exception of the word "mum" is by Bo Bunny. This was a kit I got from QVC earlier in the year but hadn't used - probably because it seemed ridiculously expensive considering the contents! But yes, I had to have it. I do love purple!

I was totally stuck for a birthday card for a little boy who's into Thomas The Tank Engine - didn't even want to think about the subject of copyright... So here is my attempt at a train card. Made from 4 sheets of DCWV cardstock and some sparkly black card. Along with some Sizzix and QK die cuts to add the names etc.
