Puppy love!

Today I feel like the first week I brought my little princess home - sleep deprived but smiling..............and this is the reason.................our new addition to the family!!

Isn't she cute (I'm talking about the puppy now;)

7 weeks old and a mini "sausage dog" - she weighs 1.2kg and has the sharpest teeth on this side of the earth........................and her favourite time to chew (and by chewing I mean chewing on me - anything goes - ears, lips, nose!!) is at 3am!!

A few times today I thought - why do we do this to ourselves and then she curls up in the nook of my neck with her baby puppy breath and baby puppy sighs in my ear and I remember why!!

So I can get some new puppy paper to scrap with!!!!

Happy sleepin' (oops...meant scrappin' ;P)'

Resist stamped tags.

It seems the only thing I get time to play with at the moment is tags:) 

I love using the resist stamping effect and colouring with my Distress Inks!

Using a swirly stamp and clear embossing powder to create the white swirls on the white cards is perfectly easy and creates a striking image.  Use different colours of Distress Inks to create a bit of a variety and add a puched butterfly for 3D texture.

These make a lovely gift if boxed or simply tied together with matching ribbon.

Why not play with bold colours or black and white - you might find you like both:)

Happy scrappin'

Groovie April Fool

You'll be a real April fool if you don't hop over to Groovie Covers and play along with our April cover!
This is my take on the cover for some inspiration! I wanted to use a decorative scissor or punch for the edge on the green and blue but nothing really mimicked the black wiggle on the original cover. In the end I opted to cut it freehand and like the effect on the LO:)

The flowers added the perfect layered feel to the LO and I love the spring green - it just lifts all the colours!

Be inspired and have fun with your news prints:)

Happy scrappin'
