Oh so Girly


Morning Lovelies!

I'm pleased to report that we're now safely installed in Derby and we were more or less unpacked on the day we moved in! How cool is that? I am much, much happier in the new house and feel like a mahoosive cloud has lifted from over me. A good result I'd say. :)

Time for a new challenge over at
Sweet Stampin and this week, Claire H is hosting Oh so Girly! Now I know you're shouting that it's a Team Carrie week but I couldn't resist making something pink and girly. And it meant I had to keep my stash unpacked (I was still in Norfolk when I made this.) because I 'needed' to make something!

Anyway hop on over to
Sweet Stampin to see what The Sweeties have created and find out what fabby prizes we have up for grabs. There's a familiar face there this week! Her shop Sew Sweet is crammed full of goodies, can you can guess who it is! ;)

You may have noticed that I quite like pink, although it's a popular misconception that it's my favourite colour. For some reason though, I always find using pink on my cards quite difficult. I think the answer may be to get more pink stuff; Copics/ Ink/ Prismacolours, papers, ribbon, buttons, flowers... ;) Watch out Baggage Control!

So pleased you like the new place Fluff (although I can't help feeling that Winchester would have been preferable!)
Love your girly card too! Fabulous simple image and sweet papers. Generous, too, I don't think I could use two wooden buttons on one card. For the most part, my wooden buttons are just for stroking anyway! Big hugs! Lesley
