Toddler/Teen/Etc Mid Week Reminder

{pant pant pant} I'm here!!!! I've run from the dentist...ok...I ran from the car after driving back from the dentist lol...to take pictures of my card and type up today's post. I finished my card late last night and didn't have the energy or gumption (can you tell I've been watching The Holiday lol) to take pictures and edit them and I was up with the larks this morning to get Rocky and Ruby to Doggy Daycare then to the dentist so am I forgiven????

I started my card using pp then decided it was too busy so opted for plain cs jazzed up with my favorite SU! embossing folder. Let me know if it was worth the wait lol...


Much of the credit of this card goes to Ladybug Julie or QOB (Queen of Bunting) as I like to call her. I've always loved Julie's bunting ... mine always looked pretty lame until she shared her secret with me the other week...she might be sorry she did lol. Also her doodling is fabtastic and again she shared her secret with me...it's all in the pen (Copic Fineliner) and a steady hand so maybe a glass of wine before you start might help lol. 

I got the stamping bug back after my Football Jack card the other week so decided to use High Top from the Shoes n Bags collection which I think is perfect for either a girl or boy. I would have loved this image on a card when I was a teenager as I was a tomboy through and through...no dresses for me!! I stamped the image with Momento Black Tuxedo ink (sadly neglected since digi took over my life) and colored it with my Copics AND my neglected Prisma Pencils...I forgot how yummy they are to use. I've used one of my favorite color combinations...pink and orange though the orange doesn't show up too well in the photograph.


I added Gunmetal nailheads to the trainers for added detail and Glossy Accents and Glamour Dust to the hearts.


I'm quite chuffed with the sentiment. I saw a card on a blog which I can't for the life of me remember because I'd like to give her credit. I thought I had saved the card but couldn't find it so if you've seen a card with a sentiment like this let me know and I'll give you/her a mention. Anywho, there were no instructions but I managed to figure it out...pretty cool huh1


I used my fabby SU! embossing folder to jazz up the numbers...a Die-namics die set.


I got a bit carried away with my doodling and continued it inside...think I've got the doodling bug as well as the bunting bug now!!

You can still buy High Top for an incredible £1.95...that's 70% off!!!

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

It's less than 4 weeks until Nicole has her baby...I did tell you right??? She finishes work on Sunday and cannot wait and neither can I!!! My DLS (darling little sister) became a grandma for the first time on Saturday night when her step-daughter Jhordan gave birth to a gorgeous baby boy Chase Devon...he is super cute and I am thrilled for all of them.

I hope you have a great Tuesday.

Catch ya later x
