I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #148



This is my DT project for this week's challenge on SECRET CRAFTER SATURDAY CHALLENGE which this week is set by the lovely WENDY (THE GAFFER!).  She has chosen a theme of:-

CREATE A SCENE
I decided to use my new set of stamp from Stampin Up which had the pram, duck, teddy vest and baby head all seperate so used my stamp positioner and post-it notes to build the scene.

I stamped the "congratulations" stamp all over the white card in 3 different inks (Regal Rose, Melon Mambo & Real Red) then put the card through cuttlebug in Swiss dots folder.
