Paper Pushing

I apologise for crooked cards I've seem to over compensated and they are now leaning the other way but I promise my cards are straight! Well after spending the day moving paper around my desk or fighting with photoshop to make a watermark gave up in the end, I checked out the CPS challenge which I found very difficult, they want you to choose a sketch from all the sketches they've used that's only 99 of them. I'm Libra its very hard to make a decision like that. Eventually I choose CPS#8 it was helped that the DT had made baby boy cards for Tami which inspired the card. I paper pieced the pram and the sentiment is Hero Arts and the flower is made with stash from Poppicraft.

When I was hunting for inspiration for Kazan's sketch 18, I knew I wanted use this 7 Gypsies sticker but it was bit plain so a bit ribbon and fab prima flower worked a treat, but I was stuck with the side panel so having discovered a nice flourish on the Stretch your imagination cartridge for the Cricut, I thought it work up the side and then promptly cut the wrong one but I think it works better, afraid the brads had to go the other way then on the sketch. Oh and the card is square.


I've received this sophisticated award from Benedicte and you have to pass it on to 7 people. Again I'm running late this morning so will have to do it another day but if you haven't received it yet, well I'm sending it to you.

I couldn't lie to the Dentist about the very sensitive tooth but he found it, so that a filling and a lot less money on craft.

Today History is being made in the USA, Good Luck to the new President.
