A Cutie Patootie


Hi only me again, Wanted to show you another I made using the cd Laugh out Loud by Peerless Designs this is the actual image we were given in the comp and the caption above them says 'Hey mum...Look what I've found,can I keep him?' which is the caption I said so I won a copy of the cd and for my caption to appear on the cd so here it is.For this one I used a topper and matching backing paper from the cd and above the topper I have used a Martha stewart punch and layed leaf ribbon along it and decorated with punched flowers and gems.

Cool Cat Steampunked

Evening peep recently there was a competition on peerless Designs facebook page you were given a piccy and you had to come up with a caption for it,well I won and the caption was put on Sarahs new cd rom Laugh out Loud Im so chuffed about that.Here I have made a quick card for a male using the elements from the cd rom I love this Cool Cat ,the paper also comes with the cd,the border of lions down the side of the card was the edge of one of the papers and I think it works really well with gold mirror card.
Check me out you can actually see the mirror card in the piccy I will master this camera some day haha.

New Style For Me-Shabby Chic Birthday Wishes

Evening peeps well I did it again popped out for a while right out of my comfort zone of cute characters and straight lines to try Shabby Chic Stylie would so love to know what you think.
The frame for my greeting is actually a Fancy Pants Rub on which I have had for ages and thought it looked great surrounding the stamped greeting,the gorgeous dress form stamp is from a great set called Paper Girl from the Girls Paperie,paper is from papermania which has been inked with Antique linen DI and distressed with TH paper distresser and also torn in places.
To embellish I have used pearls from Wild orchid and the flowers are from Hobbycraft.I have also used a Martha Stewart for the butterflies,added gems to their bodies and attached a small bow to the middle of the dress form to finish.
I hope you like it.
