Baby, Baby, Baby

A friend of mine had a baby recently. And I had 9 months to get a card ready. But did I leave it till the last minute? And did she have the baby 2 weeks early? Yes, yes, yes! So I was totally unprepared and so went out and bought her a card!!!! I know, useless! I just hadn't been in the mood to make cards and I need to be in the mood otherwise I can't do them.

In the end (y'know when it was too late) I got in the mood and made these two cards using a digital image by Squigglefly. I don't think they have that particular baby image anymore - I couldn't find it when trying to do the link. But they have other gorgeous images there. In fact so gorgeous I want more of my friends to have babies so I can send them cute baby cards!

Again I am at a loss for words to write in this blog of mine. I guess just nothing interesting has been happening. But I did read something nice recently so I will share it with you...

Every time you smile at someone,
it is an action of love,
a gift to that person,
a beautiful thing.

Have a lovely day and smile at everyone you see ...

Music Cat

Woo hoo I'm back! Where have I been? Ha ha nowhere too exciting!

It was my friend Kate's birthday so this card was for her - the clue is in the sentiment. Anyway this cute Penny Black cat stamp is called 'Toot the flute'. I did a music theme because Kate sings. Okay she doesn't play the flute but it makes a sound and so does singing so there's the link. Anyhoo I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the music background (it's called 'Allegro' I think). And the die cuts are Nestabilities labels.

I might have a couple more cards to show this week so watch this space... I've been a bit lazy in the card making department lately. It always happens, I go through phases where I just can't make anymore cards as all my inspiration disappears. Plus we've had a few days of sunshine and I just have to be out and about.

Here's a pic of Miss Miaowski looking cute.

She hasn't made an appearance on the blog for at least a few posts so thought you might like to see her. See how sweet and innocent she looks. It's all fake, believe me. I might show a pic of my hand after she bit me the other day, it all got swollen and infected. Don't think she understands that playing is supposed to be fun, think she thinks she is some kind of ninja who has to fight to kill.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back soon ....
