Cat Face Buttons

I impulsively bought a set of buttons in the shape of cat faces off eBay - and then thought, What the heck do I do with them???

I looked at some of my cat stamps (and I do have a lot!) and thought that the heads are similar size to those in an  Inkadinkadoo set and by experimentation, came out with these two cards. They also used a couple of backing papers that have been cluttering up my stash.

You're So Sweet - Adam Pescott!

These new free stamps from this months Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine are just soooo cute! Designed by Adam Pescott, there are 9 different stamps in this set called 'You're So Sweet'.

I just had to use them straight away and teamed that cute dog wearing the chefs hat with some cookery themed papers by Kaisercraft. I have stamped some more images and I am looking forward to a colouring session with the promarker pens.

Another Small Dent in My Stash!

I have just made these 3 cute cards  - but have only used up 2 sheets from my ever growing pile of papers. But the purple paper I have had for years, so there is a small feeling of satisfaction over that! 

Really I cannot justify buying any more papers for at least 10 years, but they keep producing yummy designs that I just cannot resist, is there any treatment for this addiction???

Congratulations to the blog winner

Well done to No 12 - Applejack who was the number drawn out of the hat - I hope you enjoy your candy bits and pieces!

Now that the weather is warmer and that the flowers are starting to bloom, I have been in the mood to make some cute baby cards!

Eldest son treated me to the latest Docrafts goodie bag as part of my Mothers Day present and I have had a lot of fun using these cute Forever Friends die cuts to make them. 

I also got some lovely smellies, basket of flowers and box of chocolates from youngest daughter, so felt very spoilt.

A couple more pastel cards

Feeling in a bit of a muted mood, so have gone for a couple of soft pastel coloured cards using some freebie papers from magazine.
The house is quiet as daughter has gone to stay at her cousins for a couple of days - is that why my mojo has disappeared? Now that I have some time and space to craft, I just want to sit around wasting time on the pc!

Feeling inspired.....

This months copy of Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine was waiting on my doormat when I got home yesterday and when I opened it, I just started to drool over the Webster Pages freebie papers.

A fab selection of shabby chic & vintage style papers from their Western Romance and All about Me collections.

I just had to dive in and and make a few cards straight away whilst ignoring the washing up and hoovering!
