Happy sunday and lily-boo's feb challenge!!

Happy sunday everyone!!!

I have had a busy day delivering birthday cards and playing with my little man who made a really cute birthday card ( derrrr, forgot to take a piccy of it! ) for one of his fav ladies, Fi.
So I have had time to make a few cards this week.
This one is for our Lily-boo too february challenge, its 1 tag and ribbon this month and I went with one of the super cute bunches girls from the boutique, and gave her the copics treatment!! along with a bit of nestie useage and some of my take out and stroke it paper!!! I made the tag with my scalloped oval set from stampin up.
And this one is for the UK crafters thread on the cricut mb. Kerry has once again got her whip out and is giving us something productive to do whilst we chat away and this month it is side step cards, I lurve these cards, they are so sweet and I love fiddling with bits to glam them up. I made one last week for Kate too but forget to take a piccy of that one ( again....derrrrrr!!) and I made 2 today ( i will pop a piccy on of that one tomorrow as it is for my lovely friend Fi's birthday which is tomorrow and I don't want her sneaking a peek at it!!!
I heat embossed my little tilda with hearts and coloured just her hearts, then I got my whispers stamp set out and used a few of those, (yes I know there is splodadge on the kisses!! I dropped it into my tray of powder and then couldn't find my brush to clean it off!!!!)
well, thats it for me for today!!! thank you for popping in!!!

Baby wordbook!!

OOOOOhmg!!! I am loving my new dreams come true cd rom from funkyhand!!!! it is just so easy to use and the papers are dreamy!!

So this is what I made yesterday morning too ( that proves how easy it is to use because I take forever to make a card and I managed 2!!!!!! lol!!!!)
I gave the wordbook bit a whirl with this one, I loved how easy it was to change the colour of the letter within the program and printed it all out, I popped it back through the printer again to get another pattern on the back.
Now the thing I love about wordbooks from funkyhand is that there is no waste at all, the bits I cut off to form the shape of my wordbook I used for the little tags and bits on the pages and the bit for my Friend to write her congrats message on on the back page.
I used a few forever friends stickers to embellish my little book and some ribbon tied around the letters looked so nice.

Doesn't it look so cute standing up!!!!! Thanks go to fabby Anice and her DH for such a super duper cd rom.

thankyou for popping in on me xxxxxxx

Quick baby boy card!!!

Well I have woken up feeling a little more alive today (......actually little mo woke me up and I had to be more alive today!!!!!!) The dreaded virus is still hangingaround giving me ouchy pain in my neck,ear and throat but as long as I keep topped up with paracetemol I think I should be ok!!!

So I actually felt crafty this morning and the plus points of having a little man that gets up early is that I can catch up on some things I need to get this super cute little onesie card made with the gorgeous new onesie set from Lily-boo's boutique.
I printed out the plain one on some pearlescent blue sort of textured card and then used my gorgeous new dreams come true cd rom from funky hand for the blue gingham paper on the card bace and inside the card. The stamp set was a lovely present from a lovely friend for helping with her blog, it is gorgeous and the fabric sentiment was from my stash.
Right, I must dash as I have a wordbook drying (from the dreams come true cd rom too!!, believe me, you really need this cd, took me 5 mins if that to make the base, just need to cut it out and hey presto) that I am hoping to get finished too as I am in the mood!!!!!!
Thank you for popping in!!!!

Get funky spots and stripes challenge!!!

Woo-hoooo!!!! I have made something !!! yey!!!!
Here is my entry for the Get funky challenge blogs January challenge of spots and stripes!!

I had to head straight for my salt and pepper download from the funky hand shop. I can't wait for the new cd to go on sale it looks fabby from the snipets I have seen from the funky hand DT members and have got my pennies put aside ready!!!!
I needed a little break from my uni assignment and I decided to get myself out of my comfort zone of cards and challenge myself to do a scrapbook page ( I think this is the 5th page I have ever done so I am getting there!!!) The salt and pepper download colours matched really nicely with a photograph I wanted to use.

This picture of Ryan is my favourite picture of him we have so far and when we showed it to all the family everyone kept saying "doesn't he look so grown up and handsome"
I printed out my 2 sheets - 1 spotty, 1 stripey from my salt and pepper and gave them a good scrunching up to grunge them up a bit!! Then I straightened them back out and rubbed them with my file to scratch ad distress them a bit. Ryan likes cool stuff like that so I figured it would be perfect for his page.

Then I did some tearing and inking to get the cool edges and popped them onto my white 12x12 cardstock, I inked the edges of that too. I ripped a couple of strips of the stripey piece to get a couple of layers on the bottom part of the page and put one of the strips over the photo using a couple of screw brads. I used the left over bits to make a funky flower and for the centre I used a screw brad ( I had to keep it 'manly'!!)
Then I inked up some alphabet squares saying " all grown up and handsome" and popped them on the top half of the page. I only inked the edges of the "ryan" on the photo as I wanted to keep them gentle with the white on the photo.
I doodled a bit around the edges with my white gel pen and I think thats it!!!!
Thank you for popping in on me xxxxxxx

lily-boo too january challenge.

Oh my, christmas and new year seem to have gone past in a complete whirlwind in the daubney household!!! my feet are just coming back down to the earth.

Happy new year everybody!!!!

The new challenge is up on our lily-boo too challenge blog,it is Valentine this month and I went with the gorgeous little love tree from little birds collection from the boutique for my card.
The little image is an oval shape so I just printed it out. coloured it and popped it on a nestie scalloped oval. I made the base of my card with some brown kraft card popped through my cuttlebug with the love language hearts embsooing folder, i did the same with a little rounded rectangle cut on my cricut and inked it a tan kind of colour to match the little ribbon.
The sentiment is computer generated, I love doing them on my computer as there are so many super fonts for free out in cyberspace!!! (I think this one was a dafont one!!!!)
I have managed to dig out a freebie for the boutique that might help you on your way to joining in with the challenge over on lily-boo too, i might have to make another myself with this little cutie so go and have a peek. There are some lovely collections coming up so keep an eye on the boutique!!!!!
Thank you for popping in xxxxxxxx
