It's amazing what you find when you have a rummage. I know I printed this off at least 9 months ago as that's when I packed my craft room up to move but needs must when the printer's dry.

Fairydoodler Teddy Bo Tuesday

Before I go any further please accept my apologies for this being late but the winner of my blog hop image is Kelly Lloyd if you could contact Teddy Bo through the shop with your choice of a single image that would be great! Thanks to everyone who joined in.

I've gone for something completely different today from the Fairy Doodler section of the store. Plus my printer is out of ink so I had to find something already printed.

Sentiment: Free Hill House Font 
Gems: Meiflower

Baby Boy

This Bugaboo image worked its way to the top of my ancient printed digi pile this week so I made it into a card. I'd had the footprint embossed card in my offcuts for yonks as well.

Little Tulips

I made this from one stamp of a set of 12 that I finally gave in and bought after seeing them in the flesh - although at the princely sum of £3 I couldn't really go wrong - hearts and flowers set from Cutting Edge Crafts. The base card has little coloured flecks in it so I didn't bother to cover it with anything.

Boys Cards

I'm still being a rubbish blogger - to be honest I have better things to do than sit here typing up blog posts and fighting to get my photos to upload. I'd much rather be making things - plus I have a craft fair booked for the beginning of March and I'm not allowed to take any cards gulp!

I haven't been keeping up with reader either so apologies to everyone who hasn't had any comments from me in eons - I will charge my Playbook and keep up with them on there as it's much quicker

Anyhoo a few stinky boys cards that I've made - unlike most people I like making boys cards and struggle with all things pink and frilly **grin**

Circles for Fussy and Fancy Friday

We have a new challenge at Fussy and Fancy today and the theme is circles, I hope spots count! I have used a couple of circle die cuts, some buttons and a circular sentiment from Cuddly Buddly just in case.

The image is called Smile and is no longer available. It was one of Belles and Whistles that I had missed buying but I was lucky enough to win her and lots of other goodies from my teamie Vicki just after Christmas.

I've used another of this month's new images from Whimsy designer Lia Stampz today - this lil cutie is called Cupcake

I've used one of the Whimsy corner dies set and the YUM sentiment is made from the Spell it Out alphabet set.

End of Year Catch Up

 I think this is the last of last years non Christmas cards to show you - all made in a hurry 2 with digis that had been printed out before we moved in May I can't even remember where the top one is from!
 This one is digistamp boutique with a scrap of MME paper and card blank made myself from hammer card - you'll see a lot more of these this year as I have found a load of envelopes
Cheats card for step dad made from Michael Miller Die cut sheet and some paper that came out of the ark I think.

New Whimsy Challenge

We have a new challenge over at Whimsy Inspires starting today.

This month's theme is Fancy Edges so I've used my Nellie Snellen dies to make the edge of my card blank and the fancy circle in the middle of the doily.

The image I've used is a new digi one by Lia Stampz called Unicorn and the sentiment is from the Ticket Sentiments rubber set.

TUSALly late

Bit of a cheat here as this was stitched as part of my hubby's xmas present - when I saw the Bent Creek chart I just had to stitch it as we always argue when I say this to him lol!

TUSAL is coming along nicely already although I can't show you what I'm stitching until it's finished but it's rather big and has a border fortunately not a gingham one this time - I'm still recovering from that one.

21st cards

I've been a really rubbish blogger recently - these cards were for No1 son's 21st just over a month ago.
As I was a bit pushed for time I used pre-coloured freebie images and kept it simple.
The letters are from the Clipart Fairy
