A few challenges met!

I made a baby card yesterday and another today, both of these I can enter for different challenges. So first up is my card for Time to Craft who's theme is babies (sorry the piccie is not the clearest the light is a bit naff at the mo.) This is one of my last batch of Sugar Nellie's called 'Big Sister'Next is another baby card this time it's for Papertake Weekly, not really sure it fits the 'elegant embossing' theme, but it's embossed and I really love it so it's going to be my entry anyway!! Yep it's using another of my new Nellie's this one is a Rachelle design called 'Teddy Two' (I think!) I've also used sketch 8 from My Paperworld!Last up for this evening is my entry for Daring Card Makers and it's to use the sketch given. I received a wonderful parcel this morning from a fab ebay seller called Sheila, I purchased some disney and Tilda images that are stamped on scalloped circles, I love this look, don't have the stamps or the shape cutter so this was ideal. Sheila is a fab lady and has very kindly sent me some blanks to stamp my Nellie's onto, and I am going to send her some back in return. Sheila if you are reading this I will get them in the post to you asap, and it has been a pleasure dealing with you, hope you like what I've done with them (there will be another card on here tomorrow!) so finally I have made this card for Matthew's daughter whose birthday it is next week.
I also decided to dip into my jewellery making stash and make myself a pair of earrings!! These took less than 5 minutes to make, ssshhhhh....... don't tell anyone they are made from a recyled necklace!!!


On the Hollie nursery front, she walked in with a smile on her face, but by the time we had hung up her coat and went to find her frog (self register) the tears had started!! Charlotte and Xander came over to see her but she just clung to me not wanting me to leave, Charlotte told one of the assistants Hollie was crying and she came over took her hand and literally pulled her away from me. But no phone calls and of course she was fine when I picked her up!
