This is another Luxury Babygirl card i have been making gradually this week for another one of our friends who have just been blesssed with there first daughter (ahhhh bless).
The first page, i used 12x 12 paper from my stash, circles made with compass as no nesterbilites big enough for this yet, Buttons, peel offs and gems all from stash. The flowers and ribbons are my new ones i received this week from http://www.poppicrafts.co.uk/catalog/. The letters have been embossed with my cuttlebug retro circles and then diecut on my machine.
second page is backing paper with bazzill circle and flowers from poppicraft again finished with the gorgeous 3d stickers from K&CO i love these and two tags from somewhere i found (lol)
and third page again back paper, bazzill circle but in bling this time, teddy is a diecut i purchased from ebay about 1 year ago and other embellishments from stash such as brads, buttons diecuts and wire etc.
Well i don't know if anyone has noticed but my blog candy i had on my blog i was offering to celebrate my first 1000 hits has dissapeared and ? where to.
I was trying to edit something about 2 nites ago and since it has dissapeared and i think the awful truth is i have deleted it by mistake along with all those of you who entered and your comments. I have tried in vain to find this but with no look. I can only therefore apologise to you all and ask that you re-enter when i place this on my blog again later. Anyway i have been to the NEC today and bought some lovely penny black stamps and Magnolia stamps so i will stamp some images to add to the blog candy this time. I do hope this doesn't put anybody off entering or re-entering as everyone makes mistakes especially when exhausted which i have been this week. I am off now to sort out my blog candy again and will be reposting in about 1 hour or before.
