Sara's Birthday

It is my daughter-in-laws birthday next week (whose expecting my next grandchild eeekk so excited) and tried out my little cat stamp. I've used Promakers to colour and added a little bit of bling on the corners. I love the combination of pink and lemon but I did get carried away with the stamping! I'm going to enter this in the following challenges.

A Lucky Find

Did a bit of shopping in Poole on Saturday and popped into a few charity shops and found to my surprise a small basket on the shop floor with some rubber stamps in. First one I picked up was A Penny Black stamp called Music Collage in perfect condition and was only £2.00. I selected another which is a wheelbarrow with flowers in. This stamp is from America by Sonlight Craft (never heard of them), again for only £2.00. So not to miss an opportunity I decided to stamp up the Music Collage and enter it into a few challenges.

Penny Black - Purple, Cream & Brown

The Stampman - Musical

Concertina Books - Baby Theme

Here's a couple of baby themed concertina books. I'm often asked for books that are not for either boy or girl so here are a couple I've made this evening.

Card Embellishments

I thought I'd show you the watering can embellishments that I make. I love making these.

'Baby Word Books' - Girl

Hi - not been around much as I've been busy making some books after a successful weekend at Upton House. Tonight I've finally completed 2 baby girl books. These have taken me hours to make but I do enjoy making them. I'm not going to show all the pages but I'm sure you'll realise that they are all decorated inside with various bits n bobs.
Hope to be joining in some challenges soon. Jeanette
