Petal Melody

When I first saw this gorgeous stamp at Lime Tart it reminded so much of my DD so I made her a birthday card, her birthday is coming up and she will be 10, where does the time go? The stamp is Petal Melody by Crafts and Me, here is my card.

A close up of Petal Melody before I made the card.

And a photo of my gorgeous girl.

I would like to enter my card in Crafts and Me Challenges #41 - Birthdays.
Blogger has been playing up again, I haven't been able to add photo's to my blog posts, highly!!! What would we do without blogger :)

Thank you for popping by and for your lovely comments, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend. I am off to look at all the new challenges, I haven't done much in the way of scrapping these past two months and my desk is calling me :)

Something a little different.....

I have a tag to share with you today. My daughter's little friend had her birthday today and she asked me to make her something special and this is what I came up with.

There is lots on this tag with two gorgeous Magnolia stamps and I had lots of fun with this. Here is the back of the tag.

She loved her tag! I would like to enter my tag into Magnolia Down Under Challenge #102-Stitching & Swirls.

I Scrapped!!!

Its been a while since I have scrapped a layout so this weekend I sat down and scrapbooked :) I used the sketch at Get Picky from their current sketch challenge and I make it in time to enter my layout. Now the photo's of my daughter aren't the best, her little face is dirty and they were taken with a really old camera but I love the sweet moment it captures.

I almost didn't share this with you, am not too sure about this layout with the busy background paper, its gorgeous but I usually use a plain/simple background, anyway here it is. And here are some close ups of my fussy cutting and title.

I got some more gorgeous inspiration today in the form of a pizza box. My July kit from Lime Tart arrived today, here is a sneak peek of the kit, I get to play with the Half Tart this month.

Biscuits Any One?

No I haven't been baking but I did make a caramel pudding today :) I am loving my copics and stamps at the moment, life is a tad busy at the moment and I find it so relaxing to colour in so I have another card to share with you today.

So here are my biscuits, isn't she just darling? She is a Whiff Of Joy stamp and I used their sketch from their latest challenge, #107 - Michele's sketch. I couldn't put the tag on the corner like the sketch because my stamped image is quiet big so I turned it to the side. Here is a picture of the sketch.

And a close up of my gorgeous Whiff of Joy stamp.

Simple and Elegant

When Philippa from Lime Tart got some new stamps from Crafts and Me I had lots of favourites and one of them was Art Deco Lady with Fan. Isn't she so elegant and sophisticated, I thought she would be great for adult cards.

I also thought she would look fabbo in purple but when I came to make my card I didn't have much in the way of purple stash.....LOL. So I found these gorgeous Websters papers with purple and black, added a Martha Stewart Doily Tag topped with a Prima flower and lots of stitching and finished it off with my sentiment. Simple and elegant and I love the way it turned out.

I would like to enter her into Crafts and Me Challenge - We Are Stitches.

A close up, I made this flower using Tim Holtz Glassine Paper, awsome stuff!!

Next is an old pic of me and my eldest DS when he was little, this months Full Tart was so pretty and packed with gorgeous embellishments but I also wanted to show you, you could use it for boys too even with the flower :)

Next up is another one of my DD, all pretty and pink!

Just like Mommy.....

Woohoo.... I have made it in!! I started this layout in the weekend and the cold and well just life got in the way and I couldn't find time to finish it so this afternoon I was determined to get it done. Here it is.

This is for the challenge at Once Upon Sketch, I used the sketch as well and really loved it so stuck very closely to it. With lots of fussy cutting and layers (my fave!!) and I pulled out some of my stash and used some Crate paper which I thought was perfect for this gorgeous photo of my little girl. Nice and bright and girly!! A close up.
