Small Wonder!

Morning all!
I hope I find you all enjoying your weekend!

Where's the sunshine gone to? Well, I suppose this is british summertime for you!

I am back today with a few more creations to show you using one of the new stamps from Lili of the Valley that I bought the other week from the stamp Magic Show at the Doncaster Dome.

I am still sticking to my plan of making two cards using the same design whilst I have all my stash out. Today I have gone for some new baby cards, one for a girl and one for a boy. I love this stamp. So versatile and cute to boot!


Image: 'Baby Blanket' from Lili of the Valley, coloured with
koh-i-noor pencils and sansodor

Papers: Leftover scraps from stash, think they're papermania

Sentiment: SU Whimsical Words

Tools: Sponges for inking edges, Stamp-a-ma-jig

Well I have to say I went to the most fabulous SU workshop yesterday held by the wonderful Jules. There was 22 of us in total and we crafted almost non stop from 10-4pm. I think I was the last person to pack up I was enjoying myself so much!! I want to say a huge thankyou to Jules for arranging such a fun packed day and also a hello to the girls who were on my table. My fab friend Jill, Jayne, Karen, Sarah.B and Sarah! We had such fun and spent most of the day in stitches! So watch this space as I have lots of projects to show you that I have done over this weekend. Its definately got my mojo flowing again, I just need to find some time to craft now!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~

Hi Vicky, great to see you back.

Two great cards, such a cute image. Good idea to do two cards at the same time using the same stamp. It's such a hassle to keep putting everything away after each
