Here's a baby boy card made with another Pink Gem stamp. I stamped twice, once onto the blue gingham paper and paper pieced the image. The ribbon was bought already ruffled, a nice compromise when you don't want too many lacy frills for a new little man.... The sentiment is a dollar stamp

I do love the baby faces on these stamps
Here I am, back in the USA. I flew out yesterday, my BFF Anne as my companion for two weeks, Mike has very wisely decided to stay in the UK until next month, rather than have two weeks of wall-to-wall shopping and girlie chat.
Before we had even unpacked our (very heavy) cases, we hit the shops, and managed to browse around a total of eight stores, punctuated with visits to Dunkin Donuts for a shot or two of caffeine to keep us going, and a sit down in a nail parlour to rest for a while, whilst having a pedicure - Heaven!
One of the things I had to buy was a Flip video camera, I haven't used it yet, but may well be able to post little tutorial videos on here if I can figure out the technology, it's so cute, only the size of a mobile (cell) phone, and it was on sale.

  8. Enfys, this is adorable, your cards always make me smile. Hope you're keeping well hunny. Haven't been on the Cricut forum for ages as I've become really hooked on stamping at the moment and my bug is feeling a little neglected. I must pop on and say hi to all the gorgeous peeps over there!
    Take care,
