Another for my Girlie!

Hello,  and welcome!

I've been hidin' in me little craft hide-away, with the rain pouring outside, and the 'phone ringin' off the hook....seemed like every two flippin'  minutes!.....but wouldn't come out until I'd finished preparing my nursery class lesson and all the visual aids (paper puppets on sticks, no less) for the little peeps.

I also wanted to get the fourth birthday card done for the tiny coming-up two year old missy.......

....and here it is.....

I'm back with those soft, muted colours again, and these pretty papers were.....drumroll......freebies!  Love the strawberry one...very summery.....and seemed to just "go" with the cute digi image........

......two diddy girlies.......aaawww......another drumroll.....freebie from Sliekje.
They are coloured with Promarkers (I'm soooo predictable, lol), and backed onto more of that paper set.......see the tiny ladybird?

The scalloped label was part of the above freebie paper pack, and I cut it out and used a rub-on sentiment, added a shiny gem, then the cute heart button, which I pinched off an old photo frame that I made years ago.....can't decide whether I'm an avid recycler, or just cheap....heehee.....

I love this wooden shape.......think it's supposed to be a sun, but it would lend itself to quite a few other things (just as well, 'cos I've got loads of 'em, ha!)....and I stuck the sticky-backed number on, to finish......

Now.......I'm still on a journey when it comes to makin' me flowers.....and from the look of these, I might be a bit car-sick....sorry......not sayin' anything else.......let's move on........

Suffice to say, now I see 'em in full technicolour, in HD, on the wide screen (me little notebook,  actually) they'll be comin' off....sob....sigh.....will try to do better!

Thanks for coming by,

Birthday for little ones

  2. Well I don't think you are cheap,I would say you are doing your bit for the environment and recycling. I think you have a gorgeous card here,and whats wrong with the flowers????.I love

  3. i don't think your cheap either. this is absolutely adorable!

    no. hubby is better looking... TODAY. way back when is another story - lol.

    happy mothers day, sunshine!

  4. Happy Mother's Day my friend! Must echo same sentiments as intelligent ladies above. What is wrong with those flowers? Not a thing and they better be staying on the card as perfect balancing touch! Cheap is good and recycler is often just different name for same purpose ;) Trying to do more of it myself. Love your work and your blog. Miss seeing you around otherwise.

    Wonderful day...
