Wavy Baby

is the other new stamp out by LC Designs and is soooo cute !!

Again I couldn't stop playing and had fun colouring them both,  so cute with my inked cloud backgrounds

Adorable with the Quirky Quilts papers with a frill of pink dotty ribbon, a few heart buttons ( my fav thing at mo ) and some faux stitching !!

Or what about the Gingham papers, blue dotty ribbon, heart button and more faux stitching ??  Again like the Wavy Wedding it comes with some sweet sentiment stamps !!

A present from my lovely friend Carol who volunteers at a local charity shop. Money is always tight with me and Carol thought I could put a pound or two away for our shopping trip to the NEC in Nov which is a brill idea !!

Well I thought Gerty needed a bit of a me make over so last night I got to work....

Doesn't she look happier in her very pink knitted fluffy woolly hat and scarf . Wait till you see what I have planned for her in Spring !!

Wavy Wedding that's not on a boat kind of wedding,  but one of two new wavy stamps by LC Designs just out !!
This is "Wavy Wedding"

Wedding cards don't have to be white ( I have made one which you will be seeing in March )
 For this one I used a piece of LC Designs Nice 'n' Stripey paper which has soft blues and greys in and added some pastel pink hearts which I cut using a die.  With the wavy stamps you get a few sentiments stamps inclued with each.

Couldn't stop playing with this stamp...
My second card is in bold red, white and black which would make a fab wedding or anniversary card. I do love gingham's.....the paper is LC Designs Gingham's paper pack and the ribbon can also be found HERE
Don't be afraid to play with the sentiment stamps, they are very flexible so you can curve them on your acylic block.
