Another card for my DCWV collection!

I told you that I got the DCWV- Retro paper pack and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! And so I have been working on my 'collection' of cards using the paper from the pack.
I also purchased some buttons and flowers recently so wanted to get in and use them to!
They are georgous. I didnt really have anything in mind when I made these cards...maybe a mothers day card and a funky birthday card?

The blue one turned out awesome I think! I was actually going to make it more feminine with ribbon and flowers and I was pulling out some buttons (for the centres) and just put them on the card to see which one would look best with the flowers and I put them down TOTALLY ACCIDENTLY in this pattern. I loved it! So I scrapped the flower idea and just glued down the buttons where they were!

what do you think?
LEAVE COMMENTS PEOPLE! :) I wanna hear from you guys! :):):)

Hannah Banana (AKA Punkinposs)

Well- I know I post a lot of photos of my cards but I wanted to share with you a couple of photos of my most celebrated and MOST beautiful design!
My baby girl :) - who as it turns out is growing faster by the day and not really a baby at all any more ... she is 2years and 5months, was born 3 days before christmas of 2005 and has been the absolute light of my life ever since! She is has a strong will and incredible determination and she has a crafty side to her too (yay!-she loves making cards with mummy, even now!)

This last week due to my uncle passing away I was able to spend the week at home with her (I work full time so she normally goes to a sitter each day) and even though there was that cloud of sadness I LOVED spending the days with her. We played and talked and cooked and giggled and cried and threw some tanties (well she did!) and I have to say that I am so lucky to have such an incredibly smart and affectionate child.
So here are a couple of pics of my georgous girl- Hannah.
Mummy Loves you with all her heart xxxxxxxxxxxxxx


A birthday Wish..


I purchased the DCWV 'Retro' pack of paper! OMG! I love it!!! Its even better than I thought.
I have so many ideas swirling around my head and just not enough time to create them! hehe!

So I was thinking that because all the papers sort of co-ordinate that I am going to make a 'collection' of cards! I'll post them as I go. Im aiming for 10 !! wish me luck!....and time :)

I used my circut for this one, I used the george cartridge for the stars and doodlecharms for the star charm. I LOVE these foam alphabet stickers! You know I got them?-At my local supermarket whilst doing the grocery shopping!! Well I never :) If thats not motivation to go grocery shoppin I dont know what is!! :)

Hope you like.
