Chaos, Chaos and More Chaos !

Good Afternoon,

Its been a very busy few days as my daughter and grandaughter have been moving into their own place, we will of course miss them loads but won't miss the mess and chaos that 3 adults and an extremely lively toddler crammed into a tiny 2 bed bungalow causes lol ...they have only moved to the next street in our village anyway so we will still see them lots as I look after my gorgeous grandaughter while her mum goes to work.

Anyway enough waffle, I did manage to make a couple of cards to show you.

My first card is a simple and quick Christmas card which is good for batch making if you usually make a lot (I did do just that in an attempt to not be way behind come december like I was last year) The snowflake dp is from Pink Petticoat (now sadly closed) as is the sentiment which I just printed on top. I made a bundle of these each with different colour snowflake backgrounds, different sentiments and matted on different colours so no two are the same. I added Clearly Besotted snowflake die...absolutely love that trio of dies which i coated with Wink of Stella and then dotted pearls on some of the snowflakes.

My next card is a sweet little baby card inspired by sketch 4 in Jules 'Always with a Heart' wonderful sketch library but with a few bits added...the dp is Echo Park 'Bundle of Joy'. I die cut 2 CBS scalloped tags, one in pink and one in white card, stamped the CBS onesie from the 'Little Onesie' set onto more of the dp and cut it out. They also do the matching dies but I just cut it by hand its such a simple shape and added this to the white tag, added a little flower then strung the 2 tags together and clipped on a sweet little peg I got from Hobbycraft.
The sentiment is also from CBS and I added some Sue Wilson flowers and pearls from my stash.

Before I go I would just like to say a special hello to my new followers, I really appreciate everyone's visits and lovely comments.

See you soon,
Kaz x

Hi Karen - I hope you are n't missing your daughter and Granddaughter too much! Both of these cards are amazing - such lovely design ideas - I have never thought of visiting a sketch library - I must try that - I spend far too long 'messing'!
