Kayla LOVES to play with little things like plastic bottlecaps and pegs...she dosent eat them she just flings them around and skitters them across the floor to chase.......
Kayla had fun with her peggybob..... she has very loose skin and the peg was very wibbly so didnt pinch one bit and kayla would tell me if she didnt like it xxxx

you inspire me...

have been enjoying my new toys, my Tim holtz dies.... the tattered flower courtousy of my bud loops and the elegant flourishes.  the papers are called desert bloom by first edition - my fave paper pack at the moment i must say.  the background of the sentiment (which is by basic grey) is an embossed nestie which has been coloured with distress inks peeled paint then forest moss.  the dragonfly is a papermania chipboard shape that has been crackled then distressed.  i had fun making this one xx

entered into challneges..

Thank you to my wonderful Bud Loops xx

Hello everybobs xx today i had a most lovely day... all thank you to my wonderful and reletively new friend Lee who i affectionately call Loops (because shes the only one i know who is as loopy as I am!).
In thanks for me setting up a blog for her and getting her on the first rung of the ladder of blogginess she sent me the most wonderful gift of the Tim Holtz 'tattered flowers' die....  she knew i had a hankering for it and had so enjoyed the gift of some samples of it from her....  

the gift of giving is a wonderful thing... if it be a gift of knowledge or an act of kindness but is so much nicer when the gift is one you know the person will love... so Lee i thank you for being so thoughtful and kind xx

welcome baby Joseph....


Hello everybobs xx Today ive made a card for a family mamber who has just had a baby boy today. bet you cant guess what they've called him hehe xx  I just love this image from the adorable range at sugar nellie - 'Bambino'...  perfect for newborn babies xx  Ive coloured the baby with pormarkers using blush for the folds, a hint of sunkissed pink on the cheeks, then vanilla and all over in ivory to blend. the hat was coloured using powder blue and pastel blue. the blanket was hinted with blue using chalks.  the papers were from the papermania capsule range as were the buttons and i used an xcut border punch for the central strip.  thanks for looking and any comments will be most appreciated xx
