Lily-Boo Cards




Love this cute hedgie image that is a download from Lily-Boo's Boutique. They cost £1.99 a sheet of 6 (about $3), and I just love these digi stamps, not just because of the wonderful designs but as space is at a premium they are so handy to keep tucked away on your computer. Coloured with copic markers, and I printed it out again onto the pattern paper and cut out the big comfy ol' armchair. The sentiment and little coffee cup are by MFT stamps.


I thought this little chap sitting with his fishing rod would be a great card for a boy, and also maybe for a boy to send to a parent or grandparent. I printed the image quite big, as I didn't want to add flowers or anything to it, keep it simple for once..... I stamped the happy happy sentiment from a set by Hero Arts, and stamped the birthday wishes circle from the same set. Punched a hole in the middle of this, and inserted a brad backwards through the card and bent the prong upwards to look like a hook, then hung the sentiment circle on this. Papers are all by DCWV.



If you look on my sidebar, I have added photos of Milo and Monty - both doing what they do best at the moment, sleeping. Milo was 2 weeks old at the time the photo was taken (he is a month old today), and the one of Monty was taken today as he slept on my lap, at the grand old age of five days. The photos of Kiki and Max are both recent. They are growing so fast!
Yes, the floating rodent is still floating (my sister tells me I will get typhoid fever if I leave it there for much longer, she is such a comfort....)

  5. En, Your new grandbabies are soo cute. My dad and stepmom couldn't be bothered to spend one night here. Seems my children get up too early for them. My dad hasn't seen my kids -his grandkids-for four months and is now at a hotel.

    but you know what they say. You can't pick your family and shame on me for letting it hurt my feelings.

  23. Hello...your grandchildren are beautiful and lovely. I haven't been around for a few weeks, been very busy lately. Kids are out of school, I'm still in school and a new job on top of that. I have also been working on a scrapbook for a girl's graduation and that is taking up a lot of time. I hope to post some new stuff on my blog soon. Your work still amazes me and I love to look at it for ideas. Thanks so much.
