MAWTT - New Baby

 Hello... Good Morning! I'm pleased to be back once again with Team B at

and Beckie has chosen the lovely theme of 

  New Baby  

remember... it doesn't have to be a card... as long as your creation is for new baby! 

 I've made a Pop Up Card for New Baby... created with Nitwit Collections - Stuffed With Love Kit.

These kits are really great for making Pop Up Cards as you can resize everything to fit... and everything matches.

I love making Pop Up Cards but hate photographing them... they are such a pain to get right! you end up with some very strange angles.... I went all around the house taking photos in every kind of light possible.... still not completely happy but gave up in the end! Lol.

I hope you can pop over to our main site at MAWTT and see the rest of the Team's 'new baby' creations!! You can enter up to three times but please no back-linking. 
Closing date of this challenge is 6pm Wednesday 6th July 2016.

I have quite a few friends who are unwell or going through difficult times at the moment... so I'm sending extra huge hugs to you all.
Thanks for all your lovely comments, I really do appreciate them.
Not long until the weekend. All being well, I'm hoping to visit my daughter in her new flat. Although she moved into it a while back, she's only just got everything sorted how she wants it. So I'm really excited and looking forward to seeing her new place! :-)
Take Care
Love and hugs

Squirrel's Engagement

I found this card in a folder ..... must have forgotten to post it...

my daughter asked me to make an engagement card for her friend last September. She said her friend loves squirrels and so I said yes, I could work with that... a squirrel engagement card?

Anyway, after lots of searching I finally found a squirrel image that I liked on sliekje digi stamps.  A very talented lady named Angelique draws and paints and shares her delightful images. So thank you Angelique for the beautiful squirrel image! 

As it's an engagement card.... I used the image twice... flipping one of them. I cut away the acorn on one of them and added an engagement ring with little gem. I think Mrs Squirrel might have to wear this ring as a bracelet though? Lol. This was such a joy to colour. I've kept things very simple. Just added an embossed border and a computer generated sentiment. Looking at it now... wish that I'd drawn in a border on inside of the embossing... think it would have finished it off nicely! 

Well the weather here is a bit Autumny today! pouring down at the moment! I'm gonna have to go and put the top light on as I'm sat here in the dark!! Mum and I got caught in a big storm last Thursday. We had just stepped out of the doctors and it's only a short walk to the chemist.. but it waited for the moment we stepped out!! why does it do that!! good job we both had our raincoats on!

Hope it brightens up for Wimbledon! 
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday
Love and hugs

Flaming June ... Strawberries .... Wimbledon ....

I bought some new digital images recently from StarStampz on Etsy. My friend sent me a gorgeous Birthday Card with one of their stamps on, so I went over to buy the image and ended up buying a couple more... love this Strawberry image! :-))

Papers and Elements:  Raspberry Road Summer Goodness
Except for paper behind image... which was a freebie with Design House Digital and is by Sara Schmutz - Strawberry Patch
The Blackboard is from Raspberry Road Summer Goodness Element Set... original says FRESH STRAWBERRIES 25 Quart.... but I've added Happy Birthday and xxx on the board just for this one off card.... but all design credit goes to Raspberry Road Designs.

I can't believe it's June!! don't know about you... but June always makes me think of Strawberries and Wimbledon! :-D

I had a fall last night... really don't know how I did it but when I got up to go to loo... somehow lost my balance and instinctively grabbed my tower fan which was nearby and we both went down together into the hearth!! :-O
Ouch!! and what a crash! I'm okay but it shook me up - my leg is very bruised and sore... it has made my spine pain worse too. So I'm resting up today. Gonna watch some catch up tv later.
Take Care
Love and Hugs
