Cosy toes!

I have a few new baby cards to make luckily they are a mix of boys and girls so won't bore you with too much pink! I got my sewing machine out for this one again, just love stitching on baby cards. Also warmed it up with ribbon, fibres and a felt and vellum flower!

I also decided, rather than leaving half sheets of paper in my scrap box that I would decorate the insides like my teamie MaryJ. Thanks for the inspiration Mary. I added some sticky ribbons inside too and a sparkly sticker.
Image - Squigglefly
Papers - Nitwits Collection
Embellishments - fibres, sticky ribbons, gingham ribbon, felt, vellum, bow, sticker, stitching
Medium - pencils, glitter


I am entering this into these challenges:
Squigglefly - use one of their images plus felt flower
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - followed their sketch (I was in their top 3 last week! thanks ladies)
Allsorts - use at least 3 punches (marianne flower, tim holtz for felt, nellies frame
Wild Orchid Challenge - ribbons and bows
Charisma Cardz - anything goes
Die Cut Dreams - use vellum (cut flower with vellum)

My little dog Squirt caused a bit of a racket last night and this morning left me a lovely present NOT... a great big dirty rat!! My stomach is still churning, spent the morning lifting and disposing of the body and scrubbing the back path down! Shuddering as we speak!! But isn't he a handy wee dog to have, protecting our garden from visiting vermin!

Another gorgeous baby card,Pinky. At least the rat was outside...with cats they tend to dump their 'prizes' indoors....which did once mean a seagull....that was still alive!!!!

Hi Pinky - well you know i already regard you as the queen or should that be the Momma of baby cards lol. and this one makes sure you keep the title lol
Love the little image and the fibres threaded through the die.
Great job on the inside too.
Lisa ;)

Hi Pinky, what a beautiful baby card, everything about it is just beautiful!

Oh no you poor thing having to get rid of a rat! I had a a dead mouse on my path the other day which Coco had "played" with. It took me about half an hour to summon up the courage to get rid of that, god knows what I would have been like with a rat! YUK! Have a great day. Pami x

oh wow! That is just adorable! We had a rat in our garden a couple of years ago. No cat or Dog, so we set a trap (hidden from the birds) and waited. It went off every day - we caught 5 mice, but no rat! Not seen it since though, so maybe someone else's pet caught it!
