Paper Nest Dolls…

 

 

Good afternoon lovely crafty friends, Friday again can you believe it? these weeks certainly do pass quickly

Rolo came into our house like a whirlwind and left a trail of devastation. He is such a cute little thing but blimey is it hard work, he is into everything! Manny has always been so good and eager to please even as a puppy so I’m never quite prepared when the little terror comes to stay. I could fair see Manny today thinking “thank goodness he’s gone!” He was at my Mum’s for most of the week as I told you but he’s getting old now and one day racing round was enough for him

I have something new to share today (new to me anyway) These adorable images are Paper Nest Dolls stamps and they are exclusively available in the UK from My Mum’s Craft Shop

I used Rainy Day Emma for this first card, very sweet image and I found it easy to colour which is a bonus at the moment with my bad neck…

 

MMCS 4 Paper Nest Rainy Day Emma

 

The sentiment is one of the stamps from the Altenew Label Love set which I’ve been using a lot recently, in fact it never leaves my desk

I used some glossy accents on the puddle and for the rain although you can’t really see it well on the picture – I love that frog!

These pretty papers are from a Tonic pad and I used my favourite memory Box clouds put through a dotty embossing folder for a bit of texture

This second one is Hugs & Kisses Emma

MMCS 5 Paper Nest Hugs & Kisses Emma

 

…and this image goes perfectly with the Crate Paper ‘Heart Day’ papers. The sentiment is from the pad too

I just noticed that I forgot to colour the string on her bunting – oops!

Take a look at the other designs in the range, and don’t forget if you are in the UK you can’t get them anywhere else at the moment

I’ll be round having a blog catch up over the next couple of days and see what you’ve all been up to

Have a fantastic weekend everyone

  9. These cards are so totally adorable! The second one is beautiful with the red and black palette, but I admit I am melting over the cuteness of the image in the first card! Your colouring is just amazing, wow!! Sounds like you've had a long weekend with the puppy, we have two dogs so I feel your love and pain! haha. have a great week Anne, sending hugs :)

  10. Two gorgeous cards Anne, beautiful images and colours.
    Thinking of you with a puppy! our last one (8 now) was no bother, you`d never have thought we had a puppy in the house..we had an older dog! what a difference that made.

    1. Thank you Pam. Rolo is definitely better behaved when Manny is here, he's always been such a good boy the puppy will do well if he follows his example x
