Cute Laundry


I have literally just returned from 3 sunny weeks in Spain with my family.  We feel very rested and I have not quite reconciled myself to the prospect of returning to the daily work routine!  The only thing that I missed while I was sitting on my sun lounger reading all day was my craft room so when I got back my first thought was to play along with my Less is More teamies for their latest challenge which is to use a real object on your CAS design.

I had just bought some cute MFT dies and sentiments before I went on holiday so this is that I made with them:

I inked some clouds in the background and die cut the sweet onesie and bibs.  I separated a mini clothes peg to create the pegs at either end of the clothes line.  I like the slightly non traditional new baby sentiments in the MFT set :)

While I am here I shall link up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge this week which is Anything Goes.

I hope you have had a good summer.....I guess that I should start thinking about Christmas cards now!

Thanks for stopping by,

Playing Along....


Although we are in the midst of dashing around to get organised for going away on holiday this week, I couldn't resist having a mini play in my craft room to take part in some favourite and long neglected challenges....

First up is CASology - I had really wanted to play along last week when Melissa and the team were celebrating 5 successful years but ran out of time :(  Here is what I have made for this week's challenge where the cue card is Juicy:

You just can't beat sweet strawberries!  This stamp is from Waltzingmouse (no longer available).  I simply masked and stamped 2 strawberries and added some pencil shading to the design.  A CAS, one layer card :)

I also wanted to take part over at Time Out - I love the photo inspiration:

I was inspired by the world map and earthy browns and greys:

For both cards I used the Born to Roam stamp set from Stamplorations.  I love the sketchy look of these designs.  Given I am using Shery's fab products I shall also link up at Stamplorations Summer Challenge.
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a great week.
