Hi Guys, 
A late and quick post from me. I have been swamped with orders for Christmas cards, New baby cards and trying to get my own cards done for upcoming birthdays.
I made this card today using a freebie from Tiddly Inks.
Sorry it's a bit wonky ;)
It's quite simple for a friends birthday. The papers are First edition Summer breeze. I got it last week and have used half already. It is wonderfully easy to use. I shall be getting another pad next time I am out.
She is coloured with Promarkers and has some WOC flowers and some bling,

Paper pieced cupcake

Morning All,
I can't sleep so here I am blogging at 4.30 am. I am sure I will feel it later.
The stamp today is from Kanban and I have paper pieced it with First Edition Up and away.
It has been matted and layered on to card stock and simply embellished with pearls. The bottom paper is glittered so this adds sparkle.
I am going to try and get some work done now while the rest of the house is asleep.
Bye for now,

Happy Hour

Hi Guys,
Long time no see. I have been swamped at home and although I have managed to do a bit of blog reading I haven't posted in over a week. Shame on me!
Thanks for sticking with me though and hopefully I am now back on track.
Today's card is for a colleague who is retiring. It features Happy hour and Kitty from Kenny k.
I really love the images from there as they are so modern.
The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and are Gardenias, Cherry Blossom, Gypsophila, Roses and pearl stems. The papers are Dove craft and some from stash. The sentiment is rubbed on. I used Promarkers to colour her in :)
Hope you like,
love Lou x
