Those shoes were made for walking...

Yes Peeps...I think I've got my MOB shoes!!!!! The are totally STUNNALICIOUS and I can't wait to wear them :-D There's only one tiny glich...there isn't a pair of size 5's in Glasgow BUT Selfridges in Manchester have a pair they're going to send up BUT there's a tiny mark on the heel. Normally they would have cancelled the order so I'm thinking the mark can't be THAT bad if they're going to send them. They should get to House of Fraser's by about Wednesday and I'll get a call when to go in. I'm sooooo excited!!! I loved them from day one but Nic liked these other ones in Dune which I tried on and bought yesterday but just to make sure we went to HOF so I could try 'mine' on and she instantly said they were 'the ones'!!!! I'm hanging on to the Dune ones JIC but I'm thinking it will all be good in the hood lol!!!

I haven't crafted for about a week :-( but I did make this card last Friday for Ben's sister and partner who had a little boy in October. I KNOW...back to my old ways but isn't it really nice to get a prezzie and a handmade card out of the blue? I only met the gorgeous Artie a couple of weeks ago and he's such a cutie patootie and since they were coming up for the hen I thought why not?!

Anywho, here it is...

Mary J is the Queen of small cards and I've noticed some of the Ladybugs making a lot more smaller cards these days so thought I'd have a go. It's funny because when I started making cards almost 12 years ago the average sized card I made was 10cm x 10cm. I couldn't imagine making anything bigger as how the heck was I going to fill it lol??? Now the average sized card I make is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" and hardly make the smaller ones.

I've used Bear Suit Baby Baby from the Baby Baby set and the smallest scalloped circle from my Grand Nesties set. As always I've coloured the image in with my Copic markers and cut the little cutie out. I've had the little SU! clip and heart shaped button for ages. The pp is Lasting Impressions...I have 2 drawers full of the stuff! I could actually open a shop with the paper alone ... back in the day I used to buy pp in 5's yikes!!

Don't you want to pinch his little cheeks lol??

So what are you up to this weekend? The weather has been gorgeous and I finally got to enjoy it on Wednesday. I had a pile of ironing to do and there was no way I was going to waste such a beautiful day by ironing inside so I set up my ironing board outside and multi-tasked...ironed and caught a slight tan :-D The forecast for the weekend is snow and I do hope it's an April Fool's joke but then anything is possible in Scotland!!

Whatever you do I hope you have a good time.

Catch ya later x

It has been glorious day here too, it's supposed to be cooler here tomorrow..I have heard the rumours about Scotland and it's not an April fool. Have a fab one whatever.

Your card is so sweet! A lot of people think my cards are mini but actually I use the Grand Nesties so they are about 14cm - not that small!!!
