Baby Shower gift

Marg out at Country Craft saved my bacon this week as she had the perfect retro paper pack from Crate Paper - Little Sprout - to create a mini album and LO for a work colleagues baby shower.  I'm really happy with how it turned out!

I was really happy with the layout to go with the album as well.

A few 'Clearly Besotted' Cards

A Father's Day card for my dad this year... I've used a Pretty Pink Posh stitched film strip die and Clearly Besotted's Caped Cuties Stamp. The little super heroes are coloured with my old faithful Copics.

This is one card two ways. A birthday card for my niece Mia - happy 9th sweetheart! I've used Clearly Besotted's Hot Stuff both times just picked the dragon to match the sentiment.

A big welcome to baby boy Bryant born last week. This card is his big welcome to the world!

Take a bow....Mojo Monday

One of the best things about holidays is the opportunity to get in my craft room - in the midst of a re-organisation and just have a play.  This card is for 2 challenges - Tiddly Inks 'Merry Berry' and Mojo Monday's sketch.

I used the Fuse tool to create the pocket for the shaker element and dug through my stash of sequins in reds and gold. With a bit of stitching and the cute sentiment I have my first Christmas card for NEXT year!!
