Our Challenge this week is to create a card for a New Baby, Mum-to-be, New Mum or Pre-schooler.
We have a fabulous prize this week kindly donated by Lori from scrappopotomus.
So please come and join us and don't forget to check out the fabulous cards by my fellow Dt Members and especially the wonderful creation by our Guest Designer this week the really talented and lovely
Debbie. Wow Debbie it is a real stunner.


I think that the rotten cold I had has turned into this flu bug that is going around, I having been feeling really urghhhhh!!! this last couple of days, so this was going to be a very short post, but things don't always work out the way we plan. LOL!
It is a very simple card from me today, but this lovely little Stamposarous Ellie stamp should take centre stage it is so cute. I have coloured the image with Distress Inks and SU re-inkers. The Designer Papers are the last of my Imaginise baby collection, I just had to re-order them yesterday, I found them in stock at Charmed Cards and Craft. everyhing else on the front is from stash. Oh!! I used a Cuttlebug die for the corner.

I used another Ellie image for the inside, the two circle were cut with Nesties, the pink baby vest brads are from Poppicraft



~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~~*~*~*~*~*
I received ths beautiul award from my dear friend Donalda, thanks hun it is such a beautiful award and I am so proud to recieve it from you.


And this one is from another dear friend BEV, thanks hun Mwahxxxxxxx


and the rules to accepting this award are as follows:
A) first list 10 honest things about yourself - and make it interesting, even if you have to dig deep!
B) Pass the award on to 7 bloggers that you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap.
Okay...so the 10 HONEST things about me are:
1. I am very placid, takes an awful lot to upset me.
2. I am painfully shy and have no self-confidence although
I give the impression of the opposite.
3. I wish I could put on at least a stone in weight, I hate being scrawny
4. I find it really hard to say NO
5 . For 6 months last year I found it really hard just to step
out of the door, but am getting better now.
6. I hate housework and try to get it all done as soon as I get up,
But I like a tidy house, cannot work in a mess.
7. I truly believe in fairies
8. I think I have an obsessive personality, if I like a make of stamps
or crafting accessory ie Copics I will not be happy until I have the
whole set.
9. I love blogging and am so happy that I have made so many very
special friends on the blog.
10. I am the last girl to be born into my direct family it has been boys
all the way since 1947. I have 4 sons and 6 Grandsons, but am very
lucky to have been blessed with 4 of the best DIL you could wish
for.
WOW!!!!!!!!!that was hard.


Now to pass this on to 7 others hope you don't find it as hard as I have, the girls I would like to pass this award onto are:


Carole, Dawny P, Dawn, Jeanette,Tracie Jane, Kim,Ria These girls have all given me inspiration and friendship and I truly appreciate it, thank you one and all

Thanks for looking
Hugs

Tara said...

Beautiful card Jacqui, I can't wait to play along with this challenge! I love the papers you've used and you've really made me want to buy those Nesties! I have the other shape of the labels but I much prefer these!
I read your facts about yourself and we clearly have lots in common.... I agree with 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 (I so wish I could agree with number 3, lol)! We are both Piscean so maybe that has some bearing on it?
I do hope you'll be feeling better very soon, it's a nasty bug and it took me a month to feel okay, do take care!! xx
