What a Sweetheart.....

Hi Best Blogging Buddies

Well, after a manly card yesterday, I just had to get back into my pink mode...  didn't I???  And this lovely little darling dropped through my letterbox yesterday (ooooh errr ... now did I order that? - seems I must have hehe!)  So she jumped the queue cos she's just so darn cute and she'd travelled a long way so must have had jet lag!  (I've got to admit, there were a few dirty looks from some of my other 'waiting to be inked' stamps.... particularly a LOTV fairy.... who did not look at all pleased!!)  Ah well, next time!


I'd like to introduce you to 'What a Sweetheart' from the Little Darlings Cutie Pies Collection - just released by Little Darlings Rubber Stamps over in the US.  And of course, she just had to be pink.... yes?????

Materials used:
  • Bazzil cardstock
  • Embossed cardstock from Sam Taylors
  • DP from my stash - no name on it I'm afraid!
  • Ribbon & Lace from stash
  • Oval and Scalloped Oval Nestabilities
  • Crafts Too Little Heart Embossing Folder
  • Pearls from Stash
  • Glittter.......... ahhhhhhhhhhhh...

I decoupaged her image,  as you can see with the hat done separately too.... so thought she deserved a big bow alongside!  Hope you like her..... I think I'm going to have difficulty parting with this one.... hehe!

I'm off to try out the Womens' Institute tonight.... I need to get out and meet some friends.... that's the problem when you move to a different area in your late 50's - you no longer meet mums at the school gate, nor are you in the 'pensioners day out' bracket!!  There's a definite gap - especially as I don't work.  I've been quite lonely lately (apart from my lovely OH and my daughter who pops over quite often), so I'm determined to get out there!  Wish me luck, as I'm not the most confident of people!!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting to all
Christine xx

  1. This is so "you" Christine, and so much nicer than a builder's b*m!! Haven't heard of this range of stamps before, but she is absolutely gorgeous, and of course the pink, and the bling, is fabulous! Love the 3-d decoupage - it really makes the image pop.
    I'm just sat here with my glass of wine, looking at your photo with your glass of wine !! Cheers - Sylvia xxx

  12. Hi Christine, awwww so pretty! Love the image and your colour choice. That bow is amazing as well!!

    Wish you well with the WI, know just what it's like moving into a new area (whatever age!) when you're not the most self-confident of people. We've been here for 11 years and I only know a handful of people - and I haven't found the school gate particularly good for making friends! Very clique-y our gates!!!!

    If you get any good jam recipes - pass 'em on!!

    The WI sounds like a great idea! You have such a lovely personality, Christine, that you'll make friends in no time. I wish I lived nearer as I'd love a coffee and a natter ... and a cake or two!
