Fight like a girl...

Well I did it- I made a card! (For those of you who have not visited before- I have been intending to make one for the last 2 weeks but I have not been up to it following my operation.) I was on my own in the house on Friday- my mum-in-law has been coming up each day while my husband is at work and our son is at school. She has been helping around the house and making sure I don't overdo it! Because I was on my own our 9 month old pup had to be in his crate for most of the day because he is still too boisterous to be around me! His crate is in the dining room which is where I craft so it was the perfect chance to make a card and keep him company. I had to get my husband to get out the Big Shot before going to work because it is still too heavy for me to risk lifting down!

The image is a fab freebie from MelonHeadz and you can find it and a few more HERE. Two of my friends from work have fought and won against breast cancer in the last few years which was what started me making these encouraging cards for my stash, although it would be great if we didn't need them at all.
All the papers are from a digi set called 'Think Pink' by Just so Scrappy. I love them for so many girly cards but they were designed for these. I decided to put faux stitching around all the edges to give the different papers a bit more definition. I used MFT Die-namics large ric-rac die for the wavy band. I made the flowers with a Joy Craft die and the tiny foliage is a Marriane D die.

Love these little mice!..

Well I still haven't managed to make a new card since my operation- the intention is there but by the time I start thinking about it I feel too tired to do it! Instead I thought I would share a card I made before but had not posted.
I followed a favourite layout using this lovely little Meljens mouse image (I love these mice so much!) and some digi-scrap papers by Scraps n Pieces called 'Ouch!'. I used a Nellies die for the scalloped square and some Joy Craft dies to make the flowers which I finished off with some Candi centers.

More baby cards...

Well it has been a few weeks since I last posted because I have been in hospital for an operation and am just beginning to feel up to sitting at the computer. I made these cards at the same time as the last two I posted and, like before, I decided the image would work for boy and girl versions. The image is from Bugaboo and the sentiment was a freebie from Create with TLC. The papers are all by Pink Petticoat.

I would like to enter these cards in the following challenges:
I'm hoping to feel up to making a card or two this week so should be back later in the week with more to show you.
