Morning all, so sorry I didn't post last week, been mad and now the kids are on Summer Holidays i'm trying to get ahead of my self! that will never happen! Well lots has happened last week, I am now the proud owner of a cricut create and gypsy! Cant wait to get time to play with it! If anyone has any hints and tips they will be gratefully

Onto my creation.  Last week I treated my self to a few of the new 'pips' from Sugar Nellie, available over at 'Funky Kits', I used the cute dolly pip, I coloured her last week and couldn't seem to find what to put her with, I coloured her using my pro markers, I have been pretty useless with letting you know what colours I used and I cant remember now! Im sorry! 

Here she is up close, I know that I did use some of the new fine tips for the pro-markers on her, they are fab to work with! I have got to get some more of them! 

The papers are from one of the 1st stacks I brought, The wording is cut out from one of the pages.  I have always loved the look of the pages with the blocks of wording on them but never been able to use them... till this project, I will use the rest of the sheet soon i'm sure! 

I used very small sticky pads to stick it all down! Well I hope you like her and that you will join us this week at Tip Top Tuesday for our fab 'shaped cards' challenge!

Afternoon all! Well its been over a week since I posted and I have been non stop! Had so much going on, trying to keep the house tidy, orders and people wanting samples! But were catching up slowly! As some of you may have seen I haven't posted for Incy Wincy Designs for a couple of weeks, everything is getting on top of me and so I have had to stand down for a while till life calms down (if that ever happens?).  I thought I would pop by and share a card I made for a friend of mine, she came up asking if i had a Christening card in my 'magic box' as she calls it! As it was I didn't and so I made her one up! 

I used a beautiful stamp available from Lili Of The Valley, I coloured it using my pro-markers, I cut the shapes using my Nestabilities also the tag shape is cut from a new set of nesties, with pink and white ribbon threaded through. The swirl of pearls was created using a template. I added the flowers using silicone. 

I would like to enter this card to the following challenges;
