Off on an adventure...with La Pashe Flippin KidsSheets

Im sure thats what some little ones think
when they are being pushed around in a buggy

and no shopping adventure is complete without a few sweets and balloons.
That's what my kids always wanted a balloon and it would
keep them entertained all day
till it popped or deflatted
(not now they ask for a new game for their console or dvd to watch )

I was one when I was younger.......

no frilly dresses for me ...
even now I'm in jeans for the majority of the time

But still when it comes to weddings and the odd nice occasion
I can see myself in a dress
( only sometimes though lol)

This is another new one in the
for all those tomboys out there
we are all still girls at heart.

Another from the

This time its bath time
and this would be the only age my kids liked having a bath
I do love the little ducky

Bits and Bobs: Flippin Kids sheet,PTI papers,ink and stamps ducks from stash.

Flippin Diggin

Oh the joys of making this card
Now my son Joshua has a passion for diggin holes in the garden so when I got this image to make up I was chuckling at how familiar the scene is at home with him. and then I saw all the dirty little finger marks over the fridge door.
So I asked him if he would help me on this project and be a guest designer lol.
With his inked up fingers and some bug stamps
we were away and having a ball on this card.

It was only afterwards did I get a protest as he had to have a bath to wash the ink off as it seemed to have got everywhere.

Boys will be boys
For this sheet and others in the series
check out La Pashe
I noticed this sheet would be a good one for Fathers Day (coming up soon)

A Passion for Papertrey challenge 5

Theme this time is

It made me think that its a lot of give and take with our friends

St Georges Day....

Fly the flag high and wear your rose with pride

One that he never even set foot on England shores
but whether he slayed a dragon or not its cause for a celebration
Its also my friends Birthday today so Im wishing her a fabulous day
hope everyone has a fabulous
St Georges Day

(that being the i***ing ) lol
so today's card is very late and may be my last for a few days

Copic colour challenge 7#

Had an arrival of some new stamps today and just had to ink them up. Ive been wanting this owl for ages so he is my Easter treat from Whimsy Stamps.

The copic colour challenge this week is to use R22,E47 and B12.
Unfortunately I don't have all the colours so I used one I had E47 on the branch of the image I was going to use the B12 for an air brushed background but my air can ran out of air (bummer) so I had to ink it instead
so the copics Ive used: E47,E35,w1,w2,w3,w4, y21 yg23, yg17and t1

Bits and Bobs :Whimsy Stamp Owl, Copics,Memento ink tuxedo and summer sky,distress ink brushed corduroy,PTI stamp,Sentiment stamps Sweet and sassy.

using anything and everything to pull herself up onto her feet.
Here she is with her favourite toy crab.
