Let's see...

... what's been going on around here!  It seems to be pretty darn impossible to get back into a reasonable blogging rhythm, but I've been feeling "the urge" a bit more lately!  We've been having computer problems, so that even made keeping up with my favourite blogs difficult, never mind writing my own posts. But, like I said in my last post, I am still making stuff, so I'm going to have a dig around and see what I can show :)

A birthday card for middle daughter's friend:

Middle daughter had shown me a drawing by her friend, so this seemed to be the right type of card for her.  I used one of my Gorjuss Girl stamps, some Basic Grey papers, my trusty water colour pencils and a few flowers and buttons from my stash.

Next up, a girly birthday card (which is always useful in a house with 3 girls!):

Then, a Big Sister card, commissioned by a friend:


I dug out my SugarNellie Maggie stamp - she's a ballerina, but she also looks to me like she's saying: look how big I am! ;-) The papers are Stampin' Up! from quite a few years ago, the name is computer-printed.

And the associated New Baby cards (prepared for all eventualities!):

I saw these adorable baby stamps by Lilly of the Valley in a magazine and simply could not resist.  Hadn't bought any stamps in a while, but these just shouted out to me "buy me!!!"

So there we are, quite a few cards made recently!  Next time, I'll share a few other things I've made recently - till then, thanks for stopping by!
