Twinkle Twinkle Little Star!

Hey & Happy Friday!

I thought I would pop by today and share a super quick card I have made whilst the beans are at nursery. I realised on dropping them off today that it is their nursery assistant’s last day and is leaving for maternity leave.

Unprepared as ever, I thought about what I was going to make for a mummy to be who I don’t know that well and who has decided not to find out the gender of their baby to be.

Here’s what I cam up with…


I still had Background Builders: Seeing Stars on my desk from making my CAS Colours & Sketches DT card HERE yesterday, so I decided to pair the smaller stars in the set with the ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ sentiment from Reach For The Stars.


I kept the layout really simple and having treat myself to the Altenew Warm & Cozy ink collection earlier in the week, I decided to use those and a yellow card base for a gender neutral colour scheme.

That’s all I have to share for today, I had better dash and go collect The Beans from nursery. Thank goodness it’s Friday and hopefully I will find some time to create and relax over the weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!


Happy Birthday Mum


Here we are at the beginning of another week, I really don’t know where these days and weeks are going! This past weekend seemed to fly by even though I spent another long 24hrs in bed from Friday evening until Saturday evening suffering from yet another stomach sickness bug 🙁 The beans were ill on Thursday with it and luckily we are all over it now, fingers crossed it stays away!

Anyway, I did find a little creative energy last night to create a birthday card. This is for my mum and in remembrance of my mum who passed away suddenly in April 2008.

My mum would have been 69 years old today and as I have always done I made a card to celebrate her life. She taught me so much and showed me so much love during the time we had together and is truly missed. Like most mums she liked flowers and Chrysanthemums were one of her favourites.

I decided to have a little ‘play’ along with the current challenge over at ColourQ HERE and seen below. The colours were perfect for me to use Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum.


I kept my card pretty simple, masking and stamping the smallest outline flower and leaf inside a circle die cut onto a white CS base layer, I then over-stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink. The circle die cut panel is adhered to the card using foam adhesive and I finished the card off with a trio of enamel dots.

That’s all I have to share right now, but this week is a BUSY BUSY one, with a few clear stamp restocks HERE and we have our November Release, which is also our final release for 2016. The fun begins on Wednesday 23rd November 9am GMT! I do hope you will join us?!

Thanks for stopping by today.
