Yay an actual blog post about cards!

Hi all,
As you can see I have been busy :D making cards & photographing my two "angels". I brought this Kaisercraft Mini Clear Stamp about a month or so ago & have finally gotten around to inking it up. I really think this is one sweet owl. I was going to enter this card into Lucy's challenge here, but because I haven't stuck to the sketch properly decided I couldn't. I did intend to give this to one of the mum's in our mothers' group as she is giving birth to a girl on Friday. Unfortunately I am not sure if this is now suitable for a baby card - what do you think? If I do decide to use it for a baby card I will add "Congratulations" along the bottom of the card. I wish you could see this card up close & personal, the hounds tooth pp has glitter on it & I glossy accented the heart on the owl as well as adding stickles to the centres of the flowers. The ribbon is velvet & is soooooo yummy! Ok now for some advice to all those mum's out there................................don't run out of disposable nappies!!! Especially when your dh is (home alone &) in charge of looking after bub. Then end result could be very interesting as you can see.

Yup that is a saftey pin holding the nappy together in a rather unique spot ;D. Not sure what Doug was thinking, but hey at least he didn't use gaffa tape right?

This is our new "Puppy" what do you think? We went to Underwater World with Em(on Tuesday) & afterwards went over the road to the Wharf (at Mooloolabah). Where there was a lovely lady doing face painting & one of her offerings was a puppy. Em is always pretending to be a doggy, so I knew she'd pick this one. She is really happy in this pic, but her dad made her close her mouth so he could take this photo.

Well that is all for this post - TTFN & happy crafting xoxoxoxoxoxo

I understand the whole run out of diapers thing, I have a bad habit of leaving my son with my parents without diapers! So funny how he improvised! Hehehe! :> Lovely card, and why not use it for a baby it's pink! Cute puppy face too!

great post Paula. Laughed like mad seeing the nappy on Lilly. At least there is a nappy... one time Peter actually bought the baby to me..( I was out with my brownie group tiding up the beach) - sitting on a nappy in the car seat,... I hadn't left a folded one there and he didn't know how to fold it!!!!!!!!!!!
Love the card too
