Baby Baby

Happy Sunday everyone, hope everyone is well in blogland!

I am pleased to say my brother is recovering well from his heart attack and finds himself now having to make big lifestyle changes! Mainly diet and reducing the amount of hours he puts in at work as seemingly working long hours and not resting/sleeping enough does not give the body enough time to break down the bad fats!!

I will be cutting down on the bad stuff I eat now as this has scared me!!

Anyway on a brighter note I have made 2 cards!! Woo hoo. I am trying to use all my unloved, unused stamps to make at least 2 cards each with them and although I should be making christmas cards, I have to make what my mojo wants to make and last night it was baby cards!!!

I made 2 cards using an Elzybell's baby image and a Hero Arts stamp, the DP is from my stash and the punch is Martha Stewarts Doily

I am going to make these in Pink and lemon so I have cards for a girl and an either or, I am trying build up my go to card stash so I am creating some simple designs that I can make in a jiffy, although saying that I decoupaged the sling and baby's head which took a little extra time!

I am also making myself finish off the insides with inserts etc and pop them into cello bags with envies, I have made loads of cards in the past and they end up all crushed and bent so I am trying to be good!!!

The little bit of colouring was done with Promarkers, Blush, dusky pink and pastel Pink, all available from Stampeezee.

Anyhow, I am off to my sisters house, she is cooking us Sunday lunch today...woo hoo, my 2 year old fridge (just out of WA) finally had to be switched off as it was giving off a burning smell so all my food is either in the bin or in other peoples fridges/freezers!! Can't believe it has died already after I paid £1300 for it!!!!

Anyway, have a great day



  1. Glad to hear your brother is doing okay!

    Enjoy lunch at your sisters!
