A celebratory card this week, for my friend Kay, who became a Grandma for the first time 🙂

I’ve used the current Mojo Monday challenge layout, some baby blue card from my stash, design papers from Lily of the Valley and a Forever Friends topper.  The sentiment was done on the computer, to make sure it fitted in the space!  I’ve used my Spellbinder dies and the edging has been done with a Martha Stewart punch.

Cute card for a cute baby 🙂

Got a few days off now for the Easter break, so hoping to spend some time crafting, if I can, so will be back again soon

A large card for you today.  This is A4 in size, which I had to make from scratch – don’t go this large very often!

I’ve used the current Mojo Monday challenge for the layout, the image is a House Mouse decoupage design which I’ve matted and layered onto the pink, blue and white card.  The scallops at the bottom are a Martha Stewart punch and I’ve used nesties and my cricut for the circle and numbers.  I managed to make the bow quite full by wrapping the ribbon around my bow maker four times.

I still find making large cards a bit intimidating, but I think this one is OK.


I’d like to enter it into the following challenges:-


Mojo Monday

ABC Challenge – Just as you like

That Craft Place – Anything Goes

Papertake Weekly – 1-2-3 (1 bow, 2 mice, 3 pearls)

A quick mention to Abbey, whose birthday this is for this weekend.

Anyhow, I shall no doubt be back again soon 🙂
