Pssst.... did you hear?

Hiya Peoples!  I'm so sorry for my very sporadic posting... I actually have some news!   My husband and I are expecting our very first baby in March next year and things are going to a little bit hectic for us for a while.

As well as the normal pregnancy hormones that have completely stolen my mojo, we are also pretty busy with work and will be until we finish up here in Greece in November.   Then we have to find a way to move our stuff back to NZ, buy a house in NZ, cars, baby stuff and find a job for my husband all before March!  It's a bit of a stressful but happy time for us.  

So now you know... that's why I haven't been posting!  I'm finishing up on all my design teams now or shortly and will likely continue to only post sporadically for a while as my life takes a new direction.  I'll definitely update with some baby pictures in March though!

So... once again I don't have a card to share for Little Miss Muffet Stamps today, but I did want to let you know that there is an awesome new release over on the challenge blog today as well as a fabulous freebie in honour of Zoe from Make it Crafty's birthday!  Pop on over and check out what all the excitement is about!

I'll be back next week with some Some Odd Girl stuff!

Kaylee's Closet Winter Warmth

It's our final day of New Releases this week at Some Odd Girl and today we have a new outfit from Kaylee's closet to share with you!  Check out Kaylee's Closet Winter Warmth over HERE on the Some Odd Girl blog.

Here's my card:

Isn't she great?!  She's just like the paper dolls I used to have!  I love her tres chic mix and match outfits!  I have used the base Kaylee from Kaylee's Closet, then stamped her jacket separately and layered it over the top of Kaylee's body.  I stamped the boots twice... once on white card and once on DP, then I cut the DP sections I wanted and adhered them over the coloured card pieces.  I find my little Xyron very handy for adding adhesive to the smaller pieces.

The papers I have used are from my Christmas Stash, mainly October Afternoon I think.  The ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and the charm is from my stash.  The main sentiment is from the Winter Friends clear stamp set that was showcased earlier this week.   The smaller sentiment comes with the Winter Warmth set  I have coloured most of Kaylee with copics and paper pieced her boots.    I added glasses from the main Kaylee's Closet set and I added Glossy Accents to them.

Here's a close-up:

Winter Friends at Some Odd Girl

Hi There!  Yep, I'm late again... our long working weekend went longer than expected and I ran out of oomph to post this last night... so while we are sitting here in the bay in Loutraki in a howling gale (which kept us awake most of the night) waiting to get through the Korinth canal, I thought I had better get caught up!   We have new releases being showcased this week at Some Odd Girl!!!  Did you see them yet?  Head on over and check them out... they're so cute.

Here's my take using the two penguins from Winter Friends set plus some accessories:

Aren't they ca-ute?!  I love their chubby little faces : )  I paper pieced the bow tie, tie and hat using papers from Cosmo Cricket.  The rest of the papers are from October Afternoon I think.  The ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and the charm is from my stash.   I cut the star tag using my Slice machine and used one of the sentiments that comes with the Winter Friends set.

Here's a close-up:
