Hi Everyone. Happy Easter Sunday. It's the fabulous Anne Marie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge and it's Clean and Simple Week. I needed a baby card and used another one of the freebies that Lou got for me on a recent trip to Australia. This stamp and a few others came in one of the card crafting magazines. It's the cutest possible image and I decided to keep it really clean and simple. The only part of the ducks that I could paper piece were the wellies. So, I got some left over plaid and stamped out the... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday! It's the fabulously talented Harriet's turn to host our challenge at Addicted to CAS this week and she has this as our code word: I thought about doing a love card and using the "baby" a little differently, but in the end went more traditional and, instead of making one baby card, I made two! One blue and one pink! I don't have a lot of baby stamps, but luckily have Little Additions in My Digital Studio. So, I opened up MDS and went to work to capture the image of the blocks.

Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday night! In honor of the arrival of the 3rd in the line to the throne of England, I thought it fitting that, as a royalist, I celebrate this momentous occasion and share with you a couple of baby cards that I received in my convention swaps. :-) One of the swaps I participated in was called "Top Notch Swap" and I must admit, these two cards really do fit the bill. Firstly, I wanted to share this little beauty with you. Mary Hamill created this little beauty. I loved the fact that the card is totally... Read more →
