cutest blog on the block

May is my busiest card making month!!

Except December of course lol!! Well I have lots of Birthdays/Anniversaries etc.. in May so thought I had better get cracking and instead of posting them seperately I thought I'd do them in block to save a bit of time. So here goes.....

This one is for my niece who will be 12, it is such a hard age to make a card for because she's too grown up for childrens style cards but not yet grown up enough for an adult style card so hopefully this one will fit the bill.

I love this one, it was inspired by a card I saw on this blog post, the owner of the blog is a lady called Sarita who makes the most amazing cards and it is definately worth a look at her blog. I know she doesn't allow her designs to be copied and then posted on your own blog so I have made a few amendments to the card to ensure it isn't a direct copy.

This one is for my cousin who has just had a baby boy, the papers are from Pink Petticoat in the Ocean colour and the washing line cut outs are done on my Silhouette (which I am finally starting to get the hang of!) The sentiment was printed on the computer.

I hope you like them, I'm really quite proud of how productive I have been over the last few days.

I am a Finalist!!! Yippee!!!!

I can't believe I am one of the finalists in the Pink Petticoat Pretty Petals competition, what a surprise! My entry that earned me a place was the photo frame I made with the flowers at the top, the photography of it on the Pink Petticoat website is much more flattering than mine so if you click here you will be able to see it.
The winning card by Viv Owers is absolutely gorgeous and a well deserved winner.
This weekend has turned out to be full of surprises for me as on Saturday my Mam, her partner Allan and my Husband took me on a surprise day out to Thirsk horse races which turned out to be a fab day and we came home £90 richer! They say things come in 3s so I am looking forward to seeing what else this week has in store for me :-)
