A little bit of Kraft

As far as I'm concerned you can't beat a little bit of Kraft!!  How can that even be a colour, let alone one of my favourite colours!!  Seeing as I stocked up when I went to the US in December I'm happily working my way through loads of it at the moment.  But I'm sure I'll need more soon plus the matching buttons, oh and the ink!
So I've managed to use some more of my new PTI goodies today.  First up is the coverplate quatrefoil die, although I've used it to emboss with rather than as a cutting die.  How cool is that, I love anything that's versatile.
This card was inspired by challenges at:
Dutch Dare Card Challenges - buttons galore
ABC challenge - H is for Happy Birthday

Supplies used all PTI:
Card - dark chocolate, kraft
Paper - Pacific Vineyard
Felt - dark chocolate
Dies - quatrefoil coverplate, mega matstack 4, double ended banners, Beautiful Blooms II #1 die collection
Buttons - ripe avocado, dark chocolate
Bakers twine - chocolate

These next little beauties were made the other day when the Lovely Louise Welsh came round for tea.  We're normally chatting so much that we don't have time for much crafting but we both made these baby cards, a complete lift from the very talented Melissa Bickford who designed the stamp set.  Although we did lose the twine and stamped the washing line and added an extra layer of matting and layering.  I made the girl ones and Louise made boy ones.  But the following night I decided I needed boy ones too, so made myself a set.
I'm popping them into the challenge at:
Simon says stamp challenge - anything goes
Crafty calendar challenge - new news

Supplies used
Card - kraft, raspberry fizz, ocean tides
Paper - bitty box basics
Ink - true black, raspberry fizz, ripe avocado
Stamps - hanging out, banner builder

Right I'm off to do some cleaning - the joys!!!
Happy days
Love ya
