Little Missy

I have been dying to use this cute little image for a while and I would like to introduce "Little Missy". I apologies for my lack of imagination this week and some of you may have spotted that the colour scheme is very similar to my last card. This wasn't my intention and my card was half done when I realised.. Just shows you how much I love my new SU papers!

Card details
Stamps: High Hopes Little Missy & Sentiment - SU Simply Said
Medium: Prismacolor, Sansodor, Paper stumps
Ink: Stazon
Paper: SU Regal Rose, SU Certainly Celery, SU Designer Paper Petals and Paisleys
Embellishments: Little charms from Debbie - thank you! & ribbon
Equipment: Fiskars Border Line Punch - Flower


I have been really lucky and a couple of days again received this fab award again from my friend Kelly - Thank you and you know how much I love you and your blog! I received this award before so again would like to give this to you all for being such great blogging friends and for all you wonderful comments.

I had a really great mail day and wanted to share some of the lovely cards from my friends.

My first card to show you is from the very lovely Joan and she sent me some pretty SU flower stickers like the ones used on her card. Joan knows how much I am a fan of SU products! Thank you!

I received this gorgeous thank you card from Erna. She also sent me some really pretty flowers and leaves. Thank you!
The last beautiful card is from Tina. Oh my goodness you would not believe the kindness of this lovely lady and the wonderful package she sent for Zoe. Thanks again Tina and I hope you are feeling better.

Before I go I also wanted to tell you about High Hopes Project of the month. You can buy 5 great Pirate themed stamps at 25% off their original price during August.

Well have a great evening. Little Danni is now fast asleep. Some of you may know that she has been staying up very late which as well as tiring was eating into my crafting time as I normally make my cards late evening. Well as I've already made a card today I am now going to make the most of my time to come and visiting your lovely blogs!

Hugs,

Jorunn said...

Aawww.. how adorable!!! And you`Ve colored her so beautifully!!! Love the color scheme, and even though you`ve used it on a previous card, it still so different from each other. That is the great thing about card making, it will never look the same anyway!

I`ve been scrolling up and down your blog, and I`m so inspired by you and your cards! You`re truly a great card maker!!!

Have a great weekend! I`m hoping to spend some time in my scrap room!

Hugs,
Jorunn

stunning card she is so cute

Nice said...

Hihi Nikki, I sits here with my 14 years old daughter and we admires together your blog. And all the wonderful stamps.
She asked me why I those does not have. I answered, because I do not dare abroad to order.
Her conclusion: "Then you must look for each other friends abroad, who make that for you!"

I think, i wait untill the day i can buy them in germany. It`s not good to look for friends because i want to have something.
