Just a little one

I love trying out new shpaes of cards and I saw this in a magazine so had a go at it. It is only 9cm square when tied up so smaller than I'm used to, but just right for these PB stamps I bought last week. The paper is from the DCWV garden party pack. I'm entering it into allsorts - take inspiration from a park or garden and Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Summer Lovin'.

Back to school

Daisy has been in kindy all day and Martha had a nap (for once not on me), so I decided to make a card. Over in England, children are getting ready to go back to school so this is a card on this theme. I decided to make a card that looks a bit like a school bag. The image is a digi stamp from Charmed cards and crafts. I printed it twice and decoupaged it. The photos show the inside and outside of the card. I'm entering it into Stamp Something challenge which is Back to School. They are also holding a DT call so I am going to try that too. I'm also entering this into the Incy Wincy designs challenge which is also Back to School.

Getting organised!

Well, this is a first for me - a Christmas card in August! I really need to get organised if I'm going to make them this year as I'm not getting an awful lot of spare time at the moment! I have used a digi stamp for Charmed cards and crafts. The snowflake paper is a shiny foil wrapping paper I saved last year thinking it would come in useful sometime. I have used glitter on the tinsel on the image. The metal snowflakes have been in my stash for ages and I found them lurking at the bottom of a basket. I'm entering this into the Sir Stampalot challenge - Bring on the bling. I hope there is enough bling on it. Also I'm entering it into Creative Inspirations - Christmas in August and Stamp Something - use something digi.

Yes it really is me!

Hi, I'm back and hopefully able to get into blogging and crafting again. Martha is now a month old. I was averaging 2 hours sleep a night for the first fortnight, but thankfully she has adapted well into sleeping more at night. The only problem now is she will sleep in her moses basket at night but wants to sleep on me in the day. I'm writing this with Martha dozing on my lap. Anyway, I've starting crafting again as I was getting withdrawal symptoms.

Over to the card, Penny black at Allsorts have the theme glitter and glitz for this month. I have used a stamp I love, although my hubby said I need to be careful who I send it to as they might be upset I sent them a cow. I think she's cute. I used glitter on her boots and some lovely gem swirls I bought yesterday. The blog is also having a DT call and so in a moment of madness I have decided to have a go at it.
