I found some epoxy stickers in my stash and thought it would be nice to have the different phrases to match the baby-gro's...
Some cute felt dummie's with the word 'or' seeing as they don't know whether they are having a boy or a girl...
Paper and Pearls - Papermania
Baby Embellishments and Epoxy Stickers - Paperchase
Cardstock - The Paper Mill
Letters from DCWV Spring Stack
Really hope she likes it! I've got her some lovely baby stuff - hope she likes them too. It's got me terribly broody though - I think I'll keep that from Mr Hannah lol!
Anyway, this is the last from me properly for about two weeks now. I will try and update you in Florida when I can - have a great few weeks! Can't believe it'll nearly be Christmas when I get back. Eeek!

I kept the lettering simple, almost child-like and also made sure the colours matched colours in the backing paper...
The whole card is quite simple but I didn't want to overcrowd it too much with lots of different sections...
Paper - Kids pack from Dovecraft
Cardstock - Paper Mill
Googly eyes - Hobbycraft
Number and Lettering - DCWV Spring Stack
Blue & Red Glitz It Glitter Glue
I gave it to her yesterday and she seemed to love it which was good! I must admit I did struggle initially but once I picked out the right paper and sorted out the main image I felt much happier. Really hope her nephew likes it too!
I enjoyed making this card in the end as I haven't had the chance to be very creative in the past few weeks :o)

I am trying to finish off a card for a friend at work (4 year old nephew - think diggers, trucks etc) and I am really struggling....so any help or advice would be gratefully received! Thanks loyal followers :)
Until next time....

Anyway, as some of you know, I am off to sunny Florida in just over two weeks time and I have been busy preparing some surprises for my crafty follower's during the time I am away....
I did stumble across some candy on Susie's blog so go check it out if you can as it ends today at 10pm.

Tried a bit of DIY decoupage this week with the flower on her hair... The beautiful flowers came from Oxfam. They are cotton rags would you believe it! Only £2.99 for a good selection and they have brights, christmassy colours and pastel shades. I put the gold gems on myself... Thought i'd try two colours of ribbon this week...trimmed the ends to a point... My 'celebrate' stamp from Studio G inked in gold and embellished with adhesive gold gems... Final look at the card to see which bits of the card are raised...
Plain Cardstock -The Paper Mill
Martha Stewart Doily Punch
Ribbon - Hobbycraft (29p a metre)
Sentiment - Studio G
Flowers - Oxfam
Anyway, must get back to 'real' work :( Have a great Monday!

Plain Lilac Card
Making Memories Paper, Metal Flower, Letters & Numbers, Ribbon & Gems
TGF Birthday Anya stamp coloured in with Promarkers and embellished with Papermania Fine Glitter
Really like these colours and probably wouldn't put them together and was (pleasantly!) surprised at how they complimented each other!
Have a good Monday...roll on 5pm!

Sentiment from the stamp set....cut it out in a wavy fashion and coloured the background with promarkers and drew dots to match the background of the main stamped image - also added some glitter...
Here's the one of the ribbon scraps I used tying it into a untidy bow to add a bit more pink (as if it needed any more!) to the card...
Gems, paper buttons, ribbon scraps, chequered paper - all scraps or leftovers...
The other set of paper buttons and glitter swirls...
DCWV Rockstar Mat Pack
Ribbons were scraps from my ribbon box
Showgirl Anya coloured in with Promarkers (Carmine, Magenta, Blossom, Rose Pink, Hot Pink, Blush, Ivory, Vanilla and Black)

Mr Hannah helped but actually managed to get more on his face in the process (boys eh?!) I did take one or two photos of that but I won't embarass him by posting them! Looking forward to making one or two cards tonight which should be nice. Have the evening to myself so plenty of time to relax and craft. Unfortauntely it's still raining in Sussex but that won't stop me tonight! Hope everyone has a great day...whatever you're doing!

My NBF - Peachy Tilda coloured in with promarkers...I also used a Cool Aqua Promarker to colour in the background as I didn't want to use it too much on her clothes...The ribbon tied and trimmed (first ever go at displaying a ribbon like this...think it turned out ok!) and also the TGF circled sentiment. You can also see the gorgeous paper from Magnolia to match the stamp!
Close up of the beautiful little paper roses (think these were 99p for a pack of about 30-40). You can also see where I coloured the edge of a piece of Apricot coloured card to create a border...I also coloured in some different sized spots too with my Cool Aqua Promarker...
Sorry about the last pic...came out a bit blurry! I layered the peach flower on top of the felt flower and coloured the leaves with an Apricot Promarker. You can see where I coloured the border of the card with Cool Aqua Promarker and then cut the Magnolia paper (in a wavy fashion!) to layer over the colouring...
- 'Yummy in my Tummy' Paper is new from Magnolia range (papers to match the stamps - woohoo!)
- Peachy Tilda stamped on white cardstock using Tuxedo Memento Ink and coloured in with Promarkers (Apricot, Gold, Orange, Cool Aqua, Moss, Cinammon, Cocoa, Ivory, Blush, Vanilla - always amazes me how many I use without realising!)
- Circled Stamped Sentiment from 'The Greeting Farm' coloured in with Apricot and Cool Aqua Promarkers
- Blue Ribbon from Stash (two lengths tied together and trimmed the ends to create a fork)
- Paper Roses from 'The Works' (I'm sure it's a brand but they are loose in my craft box!)
- Blue Felt Flowers and buttons and Peach Paper Flowers from Making Memories
Hope you like it!
