YAY! It's your BIRTHDAY!

Morning guys! July is almost through, can you believe it?! 

It's a nip and a punch for the first of the month, what is it for the last day?! LOL!

This weeks theme is KIDS BIRTHDAYS

Little kids birthday cards are always fun to create. There are a bunch of little kids images out there, it was hard to choose!!

In the end I went up with The Hobby House Toppers - When I Grow Up.

I LOVE her chubby little legs and the shoes she's pinched from her mam! 

I stamped a couple sentiments from Amy R - Great Birthday Greetings and die cut them with some circle dies. I added them to my card and built up my embellishments around them.

I added a couple buttons, liquid pearls, stickles and some Rhinestone Hearts to finish up this card. I'm all about the froofroo for finishing touches.

Thank you for stopping by today. xo

A Card for a child- inspirational post

Hey guys welcome to my usual Tuesday post here at My Mum's Craft Shop, I have a cutie of a card to share for our "Card for a child" theme this week..... 

 I couldn't resist this cute Wee stamps "Peggy", and I coloured her up with my Spectrums, and used the delish "Summer Lovin' " papers from Carta Bella. I used the Die-namics "four corners" die for the filigree corners, and cut out some flowers and leaves for the opposite corner. I finished with a few gems and some gesso to distress.... 
So, there's lots more inspiration to be had here at MMCS, do keep checking in... and don't forget to check in at the shop too, there are sooo many goodies to choose from... 
Dont' forget the new challenge is up on the 1st, so we will see you then

Hello Tag

Yikes! This photo has really made me think about my photography skills - they're crap! Hah. I keep blagging my way through the photos for my blog - I think things have gotta change.. including the backdrop I use to photograph my cards. I've been tryna find one of those little vintage flower frogs too, but no such luck (unless I'm willing to spend £10+, which I'm not), to help set the scene with my cards too, but not to worry. It's not life or death. 

Waffle aside, it's time for a new free theme this week over at My Mum's Craft Shop. Every fortnight Kitty lets us use whatever products we want from My Mum's Craft Shop to showcase whatever project we want. 

This week I chose to create a cute little tag, which could be used to adorn a little gift, or it could be added to a card base for a quick and easy card! :) 

First off I started with some yummy Kraft cardstock from Docrafts.
I used Die-namics Pierced Traditional Tag STAX from My Favorite Things to create my card base. I then used a Paper Smooches Topper Die to create the little cut out to thread the twine through.

As for decorating the tag, I used one set from Avery Elle - Laurels and the matching dies. SUPER easy!! I stamped the flowers with some NEW Hybrid Ink from My Favorite Things in Cotton Candy and Blue Raspberry.

A SUPER easy project, using some cute new stamps and matching dies to make it even easier. xo

Hey guys!!! missed me????
 Well I have been off gallivanting up hill & down dale the last couple of weeks, but I am back today to share my make for this weeks free week here at My Mum's Craft Shop....
this totally coincides with what I have been up to..... this was for my daughter's graduation , Yay!
I created my  card to be filled with this fab graduation image from SC... and coloured her with my Spectrums....
The "Congratulations" die cut  from Die-namics is just the perfect size, making for a "quickish" card (depending on how quick you can colour) hehe.I just 3d-d the image onto black cardstock adding the die cut down the side. It worked a treat.....
So, soak up the inspiration this week from the Dt girls... I must say there is some serious lushness here at MMCS blog... so stay tuned!!
Catch you soon

Get well wishes

Hi all

Lyndsey with my regular Monday inspiration posting here on the MMCS Blog.

This week its a free week, so I went all pretty and natural

Anyway for my card I decided to use a cute Hobby House Topper -April Showers and decided that this image would be just perfect for a get well card.

I teamed the image with some lovely papers from Bazzil Basics - Vintage Lace paper pad and added a few pretty flowers and some lovely polka dot organza ribbon. The sentiment is from the CC Designs - Happy Day stamp set.
