Gracie loves her chews so much so we decided to buy her a large one, you could say it was a little adventurous of us, but Gracie as you can see has given it her all!!!

Dinosaur Park, in good old English weather!!!

Paris and Alyssa had a fantastic time walking around the muddy dirt paths looking for dinosaurs on their way, along with other things - here are a few pictures...

Man Birthday card-cuttlebug

Having a play around with my cuttlebug this evening and I came up with this for a mans bithday. I added a 3D sticker onto layered docrafts core card.

Leaving to have a baby Card

I made this card using the New Arrivals and Alphalicious cartridges. It is made in pink as my colleague is having a girl mid December. I wish her all the best with her new addition.

3D Handbag- Bon Voyage

Made on Cricut Big E, using Tags, Bags and Boxes together with Storybook cartridges, running out of ideas for leaving cards, as lately at work I have had quite a run on them. I decided therefore to make a handbag as my dear colleague whom I'll miss dearly loves her shoes and bags. For my other fellow colleagues to leave messages I made up a 'message tag ring' and decorated it with ribbons, the messages will be similiar to having autographs yet so personal and they fit nicely into the bag. I used docrafts core card-when sanded reveals another colour, and gives the desired effect.

Again using the snowman from Christmas Cheer Cartridge/Cricut, this time place on a background of snowflakes/cuttlebug, added a couple of pre-stickers and adhesive ribbon with the greating christmas greetings.

Snow globe snowman

Designed using Christmas Cheers cartridge/cricut, and Swiss Dots/cuttlebug, I stitched around the globe, added a bow and decorative doodling. Also used core card and sanded this a little to allow the second colour to show through.

Oh Girl/OH Boy baby cards

I have just bought myself a cuttlebug and had to try it out, although I only used it for the button decorative strip, I think that it adds character to these cards, the prams are pre-made felt stickers which I've had for over 2 years. Added a little ribbon and patterned paper to give the card the full effect.

Christmas card variety....

Used precut dies, added a little stitching, ribbon brads and other bits!

Fairy decoupage card.

Made for no occasion but given to my daughters school friend in celebration for her 6th birthday.

Exploding bottle leaving card.....

I designed this exploding bottle leaving card for a work colleague. The bottle was designed on DS using the Story Book cartridge and on a 6 by 12 mat using the baby bug.
I applied gold leaf on the neck of the bottle, and for the label placing sticky ribbon to the top edge of the label. After chalking the card, I applied the bottle, stickers and rub ons to the card in no particular order to give it, that authentic look! I then placed a double bow to the top edge to finish the card off.
