Chocolate Cutie

We finally got our loft all finished and carpeted today. Its a bit late as it was going to be my study. As I have only 6months to go my husband said I can have it as my craft room instead. YIPPEE I have a craft room Im so excited ive been to Ikea today to buy things for storage.
Anyway while I was sorting through boxes I came across these photographs of my son Jack when he was a year old. I had been to Asda and sat him in his highchair with a bourbon biscuit whilst i emptied the shopping bags and put it in the cupboards. When i turned around this is how he looked, bless he was so excited ! I couldnt resist and had to scrapbook the pics to put in his album. The Papers, ribbon, buttons and other embellishments are all by Doodlebug. I also used some Bazzill Basics cardstock.

Hope your all having a great day, Im just setting off to Uni as i have an exam 5pm-7pm (what a naff time).

Tilda and Muffin

I love this 'Tilda with Muffin' stamp it has to be amongst my favourites. I coloured her with copic markers and added stardust stickle to the wings. The papers are DCVW ' The Sweet Stack'. The sticker is also from the sweet collection. I used a Martha Stewart Punch for the love heart trim.
I havent added a personal sentiment to this card as it is going into my spare card stash.

Hope your all having a great week so far

Anniversary Card for Mum and Dad

Well Im pleased that I passed my exam and I apologise profusely for being a terrible blogger lately. I will try and visit your blogs as often as I can and leave a little comment.
My Mum and Dad will be celebrating their 41st Wedding Anniversay soon so I made them this card based on the colours of my mum and dads wedding outfits and the red is the colour worn by their bridesmaids. I used an Hanglar image and coloured it with Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer watercolour pencils and blended with sansador using paper stumps. The cardstock is Bazzill Basics in red. I used red mulberry flowers to decorate the heart. I purchased the fantastic Martha Stewart Valentine Lace Punch from a lady on Ebay in America. It is just the most gorgeous punch and I feel quite lucky to own one. The anniversary stamp comes in a pack by woodware.
Hope your all having a great Saturday

P.S Ive decided as Ive been feeling a little guilty about my lack of blogging lately, so as an apology, I am going to put up a little 'Sorry Blog Candy' will post the details next week x x

Husbands Valentines Card

Many apologies for being a bad blogger recently, I have alot of work to do for university at the moment as its my last year (I qualify in August, Scary !) and the assignment and exams are all I seem to be doing at the moment. Good news is I passed the latest assignment I handed in and exam results for the first lot are due next week.
I had a day off so I decided to make my wonderful husband a valentines card. I used the Magnolia 'Charmer Edwin' stamp and the sentiment stamp is also by Magnolia. The papers are the new Basic Grey 'Bittersweet'. I also used two Prima flowers with a spacer and brad to decorate. I wasn't sure about a flower on a mans card but it just needed something as it looked too bare.
Hope your all having a good weekend
