Stamptacular sunday challenge

Hi all I've just finished a card not entirely happy with it but couldn't miss out an opportunity on a challenge with a theme of animals and not stamp out a giraffe image...which co-insides with an image that Lynne has stamped out for me its stretch from high hopes coloured in with my H20's and then cahalked around the edges. The backing papers were from doodlebug baby boy ribbon stripe. The ribbon was from stash as was the buttons and charms. The sentiment was printed from my computer which I've made for my nephews baptism next sunday.

I'm Home!!

Hello all just to say i am home and i really enjoyed my time away with my friend Jo and all the kiddies...the weather was fabby and got a lovely colour on me now which so looks better than pasty white lol...One thing defo realised whilst away is that being a single mummy isn't easy and it was nice to have company 24/7. Now back at home and just me and adam although nice but talking to a 5 year old constantly isn't always easy on the i have set myself a challemge lol by the end of the year i want a new MAN you never know may be able to make a boyfriend xmas card lol!!!

Coming back home i also had a lovely package waiting for me from Lynne at Ruby Dooby Doos, stunning card from her and a lush selection of stamped images so looking froward to playing with these esp as there are so amazingly cute giraffes in there fav of course. thanks lynne loads.

Right the washing machine is whirring, food shopping to be done and then fingers crossed i want to get stamping and crafting before the ironing has to be i may be back later with a card woohooooo
