Such a fun day!!

Hello peeps!! Happy Saturday!!!

Well I have had the best day!! It was cricut club today and I just love it. We all gather in a village hall and have a huge table ( lou thinks about this for a moment, there was definitely a huge table there when I got out all my stuff.........) We cricut craft and giggle ( lots of giggling occurs!!) and I always come home feeling blessed for all these people in my life.
So we made flowers today and here are my little blooms!!! ......

These were made using the flower from george in a blackout function and I adore them and they were made a bit more flowery looking by using my frond punch that Enfys bought for me from her USA side of the pond!! I love, love love it. ( for some reason blogger is refusing to put this picture on the right way up?!!! I have tried 4 times and it is still on its side, strange.....!!!)

And this is my hello kitty nappy cake......
I used Hello kitty greetings for the Hello Kitty on top and tbbm for the little heart tags. I sewed the flowers myself and put little pom -poms in the middle, it looks so sweet in real life!!!!!
Fi helped me to wrap it all up all posh with her cellophane and we popped some curling ribbon on too, it really is very cute!!!!

And this is my dad's birthday card.
I used the most gorgeous cuddly buddly stamp for the sentiment on this one,I embossed it with my bally thing to make it into a little button and then glazed it with glossy accents, it looks so awesome.

The stamp is my super cute big present from my Lili of the valley stamps I treated myself on my birthday.

So thats me all crafted out for today!!!! I may womble to my craft room in a few minutes and see if some more inspiration gets me!!!! but I am conserving my energy for the stamp show at doncaster dome tomorrow, I am so excited!!! it is only my second trip to a craft show so I am really looking forward to it!!!

Thank you for popping in on me, I love visitors!!

Hugs Lou xxxx

  5. Lou, love the flowers and that you all made flowers. So now I'm thinking you have a big stash set aside to pull in when you need. You need to come across the pond and help me get ahead with some embellies.

    Diaper cake is the cutest one I've seen. I love the Hello Kitty theme.

    However, have to say I love your father's B'day card the best. That is the best image and you've got him down perfectly. Love the button you made. Was that with the ITop?

  6. ooh Lou - those flowers are great and that nappy cake thing amazes me... i love to see them and you did a really good job.

    If you go across to see Shirley - pack me in your case too!!! LOL
