You Make Me Smile.... really you do! Well it is now a proven fact! I tried to make a quick card....and failed. I even made it out of stickers, so no stamping or colouring and it still took me over half an hour! Clearly I am very slow!!

Oh well it's very cheery! It's made from papers and stickers from the Summer Days collection from Echo Park.

I love all these colours together.

I used the sketch at Retro Sketches. I loved Kasia's DT inspiration card where she had cut that bottom bit out so I decided to cut it out too and make a little window to spy the flowers through.

Have a lovely day.

Baby Smith

I made my friend this little appliqu├ęd onesie for the new baby. I had been handing on for it to be named but alas two weeks old and still no name! So this is what it got instead!

I had thought afterwards I should have done "Smithy". Very English! Another time maybe!!

Lovely New Baby

Made this card for one of my neighbours who just had a little boy.

I used the sketch at The Deconstructed Sketch blog.

Also entering this into the Unity Friends with Flair. The little elephant is from a Unity kit. The bingo card was a freebie from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff at MyGrafico

Craft Star card Mojo Monday

This card is for a friend and surprise surprise it is late!!

I used the sketch at Mojo Monday but I kind of turned it upside down!

I used last weeks colours from the colour Q.

And it's a square for this weeks challenge at Kenny's Krafty Krew.

I just embossed the corners and I loved the way that turned out.

Made my own speech bubble! The felt circular bit at the back was cut using a big die from Stampin Up. I then punched the holes in and sewed it in place.

I bought a new skin E00 Copic the other day. I had previously had a sketch marker. But replaced it with a ciao and am now regretting it as it bleeds really badly!  (Look at her eyes!)  Have just ordered another sketch instead. Very annoying! Has anyone else had this problem?

Thanks for stopping by!
