Paintbox Poppets ~ Sneak Peek 1

Good morning

Today I am sharing a card I have made for an upcoming Crafter's Companion launch. This Friday 9th March the new Paintbox Poppets collection will be launched on Create & Craft. This collection contains a CD-ROM jam packed with gorgeous papers, decoupage, images and more, rubber stamps and die cut decoupage.

The sweet decoupage image and papers have been printed from the CD. The sentiment is one of the new stamps. Flowers and seam binding are from Wild Orchid Crafs. The doily is from my stash and I have finished it off with some pearls and a punched butterfly.
I know this image is probably best suited for a New Baby card but I thought it would make a really sweet 1st birthday card for a baby girl hence the Happy Birthday sentiment :-)

* Challenges *

Wild Orchid Crafts ~ White plus 1 (I chose pink)
CES ~ Flower Frenzy

Chloe and I both really enjoyed the school production of Grease last night.  However, nothing exciting planned for today just housework but i'm hoping Chris might think it's a good idea to go out for Sunday lunch.  I've had a bad sore throat for the last few days so don't really feel like slaving over a hot stove today.  Not sure why as I hardly ever get ill but have picked up a few bugs this winter ... oh roll on warm sunny days :-)

Anyway hope you enjoy what's left of the weekend and I will be back with more sneak peeks this week.

Hi Lisa,
Your card is gorgeous! I think its works perfect as a first birthday card too..she is cute!

Sorry to hear your unwell today...hope you get your lunch out somewhere nice!
I keep meaning to email you with all the latest but still attending the hospital Day Unit twice a week and not making much progress in feeling better. Medication not doing its job.. frustrating!!

Enjoy whats left of the weekend!
