Fabby Dabby News....:)

I just wanted to share with you all that my OH and I are going to be grand parents (first time for us)...:) :) We are sooooo chuffed we cannot wait. :)

They had their 12 week scan on monday. :) :) It was also my mum's birthday on monday too (the first birthday since she passed away last year) - so the scan date was extra special for me. :)

I had quite an emotional day on monday - but all sorted straight again. :)

I have made a wee 7x5 album for the baby scans and will add the 20 week scans to it too. It is just a wee photo album rather than a scrap album.

We have called the baby - Baby M - (baby Moore) lol for now..:)

Here is the front cover of the wee album :-
and here is Baby M  - I think the scan is very clear...:)  There are 5 scan pics but I am sure you wouldn't want to see all 5.


Baby due end of February - so fingers crossed all goes well.  

Thank for looking and letting me share my fabby dabby news. ;)

Some makes..:)

The new Crafty Pad Challenge has started today - please do pop over and see what the fabby DT ladies have created for your inspiration. :)

Joanna Sheen is our lovely sponsor this week - you could win yourself a £10.00 voucher to spend in her fabby shop. :)


I made these cards before I fractured my finger but never uploaded them.  They were for previous challenges at The Crafty Pad. :)

The first card is using the Fancy Ladies Boots - I paper pieced the boots and add some embroidery thread as the laces. Flowers are punched using MS punch and seed beads added to the centres.  Circular nesties used.


The second card I used the Fluffy Slipper, coloured with Promarkers and added Stickles.  I used Glossy Accents to the heel and insole of the slipper. Glued it on with 3D glue dots.  Oval nesties, sirl and swiss dot emossing folders.  MS border punch.  Bow, flowers and sentiment from stock.


The images are available from The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs - HERE.

Thanks for looking and hope to have something creative to show you soon.  My finger is a lot easier now, but still strapped up..lol

Thanks for taking the time to pop over and please do leave a comment if you can - I do appreciate them all. :)

What I have been up to..?

Sorry for not being around on Mr Blogger! We had family come to stay with us from New Zealand and from N. Ireland - everyone came for my hubby's big 50th birthday.
We had a fabulous time - but very busy indeed. Also have been sight seeing alot and went to London and Paris too.
Then on the last week of my visitors being here I slammed the car door on my finger - and as a result I have a compound fracture....Grrrrr So it is all strapped up now with a plastic guard over it to keep it straight...what am I like????? I have only another 4 weeks to go...lol
So typing was very difficult at the beginning but a tad easier now. :)
I haven't been crafting - but hope to get back to it soon. :)

Ribbons and Flowers......

..that is the challenge this week over at The Crafty Pad. Such a nice happy challenge I thought. :) :)

Here is my take on the challenge:-


BG - Green at Heart papers, rectangular nesties, flowers, buttons, gold thread and ribbons from my stash.
Image from The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs.  Coloured using Promarkers.  I have used triple embossing powder over the whole image and it looks like a glass tile, (but unfortunately you cannot see it).

Crafty Sentiments is sponsoring our challenge this week. ;) :)

Please do pop over to The Crafty Pad and check out all the beautiful makes by the other talented DT ladies - it is well worth the visit. :) :) :)
