My first Paper Nest Doll - Watermelon Ellie

Hello again,

Twice in one week ... can you tell i'm off work??

So yesterday I created my very first card using an adorable Paper Nest doll! I've been admiring these cuties these for a while but never gotten round to playing until now.

I filled my basket so it was a tough choice which to use first ... they all remind me of my girlies :)

So I went for Watermelon Ellie I used the digital version but for some reason I couldn't link to it so i've linked to the rubber one instead.

I coloured her with my markers and added a touch of sparkle with my Clear Wink of Stella pen.

I've coloured in lovely fresh summery colours so just had to team her up with the bright papers from Lawn Fawn.

The die is from Whimsy and the sentiments are from LOTV, I love these little tags.

Finally I added a bunch of flowers from WOC and a handmade bow.

Hope you like it!

Hugs xx Cara xx

Beauty of the Sea - Meribelle Friends

Morning campers!!

I'm back in the land of living, well near enough anyway!

Many of you know but for those who don't i'll just explain the "derelict-ness" of my poor old blog, I suffer with a long standing health condition and its been giving me some right old problems of late, thankfully i'm feeling a lot better now and even managed to do some crafting - yaaaaaay!

Now just to explain the title of my post, my little daughter Lacey (age 6) wanted to help write my post so I asked her for a name for my card ...and that's what she came up with "Beauty of the Sea"

I used the fabulous Meribelle Friends image, isn't she beautiful:

I teamed her with my new Paradise Crush papers to make a super bright card.

The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn and I finished off with loads of flowers from WOC.

I hope you like it!
