 Sassy image then you can play along with us ;0)
I have made a gift bag, I did struggle tbh cus hubster wanted to show me how the craft room was going. Anyway my mojo decided it would rather stay in left me.....yep up & left me ;0(
 Papers are Maja Design & Fabscraps & I've distressed all the edges & inked them.
The tulle, lace & gingham ribbon are all from my stash. The tag I recycled from a pair of jeans I had for Mothers Day & I've stamped 2 sentiments on it from a stamp set I got free from my magazine ;0)

Doily  is from Ebay & gift bag that I decorated is from my stash.

This pretty lady is 'Cerridwen' & she is a digi from Krista's shop & one of my faves ;0)

I inked round the edge with LOTV stamp & brown Memento ink.

I added Tim Holtz 'Butterfly Edge' & covered it with Frantage..........which I have neglected in my drawer since just before christmas, shame on me :0( Flowers are all from WOC.

My Exciting News..............

Hello my lovelies, how are you all today? I'm not going to moan about the weather cus a dear blogging friend woke to 2 inches of snow we shouldn't moan about it being miserable. Snow in spring, who would have thought.

Anyway I've come on to share my fabulous, or should I say our, my family's fabulous news. Ok when Megan & Ben told us they were expecting another baby I had a dream about it that night, the following day I started crocheting a blanket but in a certain colour cus thats what I had dreamt the sex of the child would be. I got half way though & Megan started having problems so Ileft it alone incase I was jinxing it lol. First I'm gonna show what I brought for my grandchild, they arrived yesterday.....
I ordered some little Converse socks, are these just the cutest or what. 

 Excuse pic below it was taken on my bed lol.
Ok so here's the blanket I started crocheting, yes I know in blue, its cus my dream told me he was a boy. Megan went for her 20 week scan on Monday & guess what....ITS A BOY!!! Woooo hoooo we are so excited.

He is going to be named after Bens grandad John (my dad) & his uncle Robert (my brother) who both have passed away. They were going to call him Robert John & RJ for short, I suggested why not try make a name with his name will be 'ARJAY'......I sooooooooo love it, its unusual which I love & he will be named after 2 of the greatest men in our family............I'm soooooooo proud.
'Insert granny happy dance right here' 
So I can finish my blanket for him now ;0) 

Ok will be back later with my SC DT card but for toodles my lovelies mmwah

Ok I have my card today for Copic Marker Europe & I've used a digi image from Sweet Pea stamps, yeah they do digi's isn;t that fab..............yeah I know it took me while lol.
However I haven't gone with my usual Sweet Pea fantasy type image, today I've gone with some sweet cuteness..........she was a darling to colour ;0)
See how cute is she, I lurve her dress & all those pleats.....I really did enjoy colouring her in.

I've added Stickles to her balloons, hearts & bows & hopefully you can see them in this pic.
Also I made a boo boo, when I was colouring her I forgot to colour the feet doh!!! However by the time I had realised I had just sprayed Crafters Companion 'Spray 'n' Shine' all over it so couldnt go back in to colour my little girl has socks on lol ;0)

I've added a few layers to this with Pion paper & a few doilies, on this side you can see I doubled the doilies up. I also added a metal corner which I painted with white gesso.
The gorgeous lace is Melissa Frances.
