Bad blogger and beautiful babies x

I am officially a rubbish blogger. I had the best of intentions to keep up this year but have failed miserably. I need extra hours in my day! It isn't even that I haven't made any cards - I've just failed to get them on here. Must try harder.

Ok, the good news is that I got the Lili of the Valley new release 'New Beginnings' to play with :-) This little cutie is aptly names Polka Dots and I love her :-) (or him)!

I absolutely love the image in these muted vintage tones. The papers are from the Sara Signature Rustic Wedding Collection from Crafter's Companion.

I went for a more modern look with my second card.

The papers I've used here are also from Lili of the Valley. I love digi papers - they mean I can use and not 'save' my favourite papers!!

Thank you for visiting me! Apologies for being super slack. Hugs, Jayne xxx

Moonlit Solstice by Molly Harrison

I'm taking part in the 'Make a Christmas Card Every Week' facebook challenge. I really am determined to get organised this year. Ok, so I said that last year and that didn't turn out so well, but the FB challenge is good at keeping me focused!

Today I have a card made using a Kit and Clowder colouring class.
I have to say, I love this Molly Harrison image and I might just colour it up again in different colours. My hand has been much better lately, touch wood, and I'm getting more colouring done.

I can't believe it's snowing again!!! What's going on?

Garden Treasures

I've used some pretty Hunkydory papers from the Garden Treasures collection and teamed them up with some of their co-ordinating stamps. Super quick card :-)
I just love this collection - the papers are so pretty.

Unicorn 'Princess'

My girls are both unicorn crazy and I knew as soon as I saw this image (Princess) from Lili of the Valley it would be a huge hit!
I love the new LOTV release and am hoping to get time to colour up the new fairies.

I'm struggling to fill in a form and am currently employing numerous avoidance tactics which are reminding me of 'revising' for my A-Levels!!! Maybe I'll have another go - after I've made a cuppa ;-) Jayne xx

Spring has sprung!

Today's card features new stamps from Hunkydory :-) The are the Arranged with Love and Bright and Beautiful stamp sets that co-ordinate with the Garden Treasure papercraft collection.

I am super chuffed with my hand drawn tree - love that the Kit and Clowder classes continually come to the rescue ;-)

I have to confess that I am rather tempted to go for the papercraft kit too - eek!

Hugs, Jayne x

Lovely Lili of the Valley

Today I have the soon to be released 'Lovely' from Lili of the Valley.

I really love these new images. For the moment the new images will be released as digis and not rubber stamps.

It's a Spring Thing!

Goodness, it's March already!!! Can't believe I haven't posted since January :-( It's a very long story featuring care home drama and many hours on the phone to Social Services. However, it was worth all the hours on wrangling on the phone as my Gran is now in a very nice care home :-)

This month's Squirrel 'Not so Random Challenge' is a Spring Thing. Think chicks, bunnies and spring colours - it's a fairly flexible topic! I finally finished a Kit and Clowder class and thought the colours were perfect. So this is my offering.

I'm knee deep in sample making but my poorly hands are really slowing me down. If anyone has any suggestions to remedy trigger finger I would be grateful for advice.

Hugs, Jayne xx
