A Spoon Full Of Sugar

Hi Everyone, wow, two posts in a row... i'm back on track lol!! The weather looks a bit better today, so i thought i'd take a picture before it goes dark. I've made this card for this weeks: A Spoon Full Of Sugar Challenge which is Babys First Christmas. Sorry.. i've used that stamp again!!! I can't get enough of it- it's just so versatile!! :O) I dug out these yummy DCWV papers again from last year, i jsut love the girly shades in this pack, and the way every sheet co-ordinates perfectly!!

Side View:

I just used a simple layout, and a few embellies and the card as done. I also personalised it, as this is just one of the many orders i still need to make!!

Hello everyone.
I'm so sorry i've been away for so long! I've had about 40 card orders in the last week, and what with trying to balance eveything out with craft, and school work, it gets really difficult at times! My first three Christmas cards have all been made with the same image. I'm so glad i bought this little fellow from the NEC... he's gorgeous!

I found these yummy DCWV papers at the bottom of my paper pile, and i just love the rich colours and beautiful designs. This pack is availiable from Bunny-Zoes-Crafts.

I'm entering the first one into this weeks Simon Says Stamp Challenge which is animals.I sewed together some green ribbon and secured it with a red button.
I've chosen Creative Inspirations challenge which is sparkle!! I've addded LOTS of Glamour Dust to this bears hat.

Hello everyone, right i'm back from a fantastic day at the
NEC, unfortunatly, it's too dark to take any pics of anything i've bought, and besides i've ripped it all open!! :O) I spent all the pocket money i'd saved up!! Unfortunatly i didn't see anyone i knew. Although i met Sarah from, and Louise who was doing a FANTASTIC demo, with some stunning colouring, and amazing samples.
The Lili Of The Valley Stall was great, i bought two of the newly released boys stamps- footballer and the video games, and one of the sweet christmas teddies- 3 for £10! :O) Jacqui's samples were there on the stand. They are even more beautiful in real life.
There were also some scrummy prima flowers and yummy embellishments that i might of indulged in too! Oh well shhhhhhhhh!

Anyways thanks for visting, i've made avfew cards with my new stash which i'll post tomorrow.
