Makes me Smile!

Bugaboo stamps always bring a smile to my face and the challenge at "Less is More" this week is simply that... something that makes you smile... although it doesn't necessarily have to be funny. It could be just cute or pretty or pleasing!

I simply added a word bubble to the image and popped the quote inside it. Having coloured it with Copics I die cut an oval leaving the speech bubble protruding out of it!

This little cat from Creative Images always makes me hoot... I quite like the sentiment too!
This is the card I put on the LIM blog this week... my favourite chickens from Penny Black, although this is just one of row of chooks working out!
The sentiment made me smile too!
God must like calories, because he made so many!
I can empathise with that one!
Why don't you join in!
I have my grandchildren for the weekend...what fun we'll have!

Welcome little one

Here is a little card based on this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.
The little Papertrey  giraffe was stamped and die-cut, then popped onto dimensional pads accompanied by a very old but very favourite sentiment stamp... it says copyright 1987 but I can't read a maker's name. It was bought second hand on eBay many years ago! 
Having not made many cards for the past several weeks, I seem to have been pretty busy recently, I just completed a commission of seven cards for a lady in Northern Ireland... my fame is spreading!


We had a wonderful time in and around Pisa last year. It was a choir tour on which only half of the choir managed to go, due to last minute cancelled flights at Heathrow. Having made our own way to Pisa, via Gatwick, we were some of the lucky ones!
It's amazing how this building remains standing!
The challenge at Addicted to CAS is FAR AWAY and I thought that this would do!
The stamp is from Stamp it Australia Around the World.

Easter Bunnies

This is a card for a few challenges.
I loved the free image from A Day for Daisies, and decided to use it for their Easter challenge.
This card also fits with the challenge from Casual Fridays where an oval is required!
As it could also be used as a birthday card, I decided to enter it for the challenge at CAS on Sunday, where a birthday card using a die-cut is the challenge!
They are such cute bunnies!
