I wish there were more hours in the day...I wish I could have more time to stamp...but alas, it is what it is and I feel I am blessed to be able to do what I love!

I have changed obsessions in the last week, moved from cooking back to stamping....Although I am sure Jamie will not be very impressed with that...I somehow need to find more spare hours in the day to do both!

Well, this week was the deadline for the Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge for January. And I actually got around to doing all 5 cards! There are usually 4 each month, but this time we had 5 sketches to follow. Well, I kind of like to do them all in the last week, as I have all the sketches in front of me and it somehow seems easier....just sit down for a few good hours and do them all.....Maybe this is where the cooking time is going??? Some of the cards do look quite delish :-)

Without any further ado, here are the sketches and cards to match. The first week has a sketch and a colour picture to go with it.

For the Black Tie Birdies and the Elephant cards I used some of the stamps I won from Viva La Verve November. This was the Original Post with the cards.

I will not list all the supplies used, especially the COPICS list, as it is quite extensive. But if you want more details please email me and I would be happy to look at them more in detail and try to figure that one.....

Some of the latest baby cards I made for friends that have been blessed with a little bundle of joy :-) (well, I should hope they are all bundles of joy!).

I will only list the stamp set/wheel used for each one as it would take me too long to have a proper list of supplies used for all of the cards. If you want any more info on a particular card, just email me and I will try to remember.

"Washday" Wheel

For the Baby Pram I used circle punches or various sizes Stamp Set is "Fabulous Phrases"

 Retired SU set, not sure of the name...
For the next 2 I used "Bundle of Joy"

 "Little Princess"

"Two by two" WITH COPICS

 "Baby Prints"

Hope you like them. And if you ever need any cards, invites or any other paper crafts, or you know someone that does, I am always available for special orders!


I thought I would do a post with some of the kids b'day cards that I made lately....They might have been previously posted, but some have not. In the interest of a short post and sanity tonight, I will not list all the supplies I have used, just the stamp set name...

For this one I used "Look Who's Turning"
"Little Princess"
"Lots of Bots"
Non SU Set..."I think I can..."
Much better attempt at colouring with COPICS this time!
"Little Princess"
"Beary Best Friends"
 I used the "Happy Heart Day"Set for the Kids Birthday Party this past August
"Summer Afternoon"


"Sweets fot the sweet"

Carnival Wheel
Circle Punches :-)

Planning on doing a Baby Cards post in the next few days. I might even get back into regular blogging if I keep going like this!
