Oh Happy Day...

Morning folks...it's a happy happy day and I'm sharing some of the happiness with the lucky winner of my gorgeous...
LAVENDER RIBBON GIVE-AWAY..
congratulations......
woohoo...my lovely buddy Kat...please get in touch
and your gorgeous goodies will be winging their way to you soon from the lovely and always so generous girls at The Ribbon Girl

and the reason for the over abundance of glee in the cubbyhole this morning...it's been a wonderful Wimbledon fortnight and a glorious weekend of fabulous tennis with the edge of your seat nail biting Mens Final...I felt heart sorry for Andy Murray...he put up a valiant fight but was no match for the magic of the mighty Federer forehand...I'm over the moon that my Hero is back in business after being written off by the sports media...he's a true warrior and back where he belongs at No 1 and the latest crafty purchases just put an extra huge dollop of happiness on the cake...
How could I resist this Circle Border die from Simon Says Stamp when I spotted this beautiful card on my Hero Arts hero...the lovely Shari Carroll's blog...
but it would have been so unkind to expect it to travel all the way across the pond on it's own...feeling a little homesick and lonely in that big jiffy bag so a few buddies were added for company...come on...I bet you do that too.  It's quite a journey and I was stalking poor Mr Postie until they landed safely in the cubbyhole...no recovery time from Transatlantic jet lag allowed here...time to play and enter the...

to create a girlie card...
a challenge indeed for this ancient tomboy who favours the scruffy jeans and Tshirt..."pulled through a hedge" look...can't remember the last time I wore a dress or a skirt but this adorable sweet little miss is definitely one super cute girlie girl...don't you just love her chubby little arm and legs..


but with Wimbledon over for another year...no more excuses for skivving off...so it's back to work for the cubbyhole crew and a little workdesk tidy up is the first job of the day...see you all tomorrow.
Hugs Kath xxx

thought of you last night when I heard Federer had won! These dies look brilliant & I do like your work with the kraft - terrific. Yes - I do the same, add a few companions to whatever I'm ordering to keep an item company.

Fabulous card Kath! I love that hexagon border die! I felt so sorry for Andy Murray but I have to agree with you Fed has style and panache in spades!

Oh you have mentioned my other heroine, Shari. She was over a couple of years ago and I attended her workshop - what an adorable and talented lady she is. The dies are gorgeous and yes, I do the same and I love Simon Says. Your card is gorgeous and I love the way you do your double bows, please will you do a tutorial on them sometime? Federer rocks but I did shed a tear for Andy.....Crafty hugs, Anne x

Kath, your card reminds me of my little granddaughter, just over a year old, who still has this sweet pudgy look about her. This is just so darling!!

Hi Kath, lovely card, she is a wee sweetie just how little girls looked many moons ago in their best dress. These dies look super, have to put them on the wish list!

Kat said...

Hi Kath, love this sweet card. What a cutie a real Mabel Lucie Atwell girlie!

Can't believe I've won the Ribbon Girl goodies. I've been so busy "tidying" I didn't switch on my laptop till this evening. I'm off to email you now.

Love that "holey" die cut!! That PB image is one of my favorites!! Love following your blog!!

Love those chubby arms and the dimpled knees. I'm having Wimbledon withdrawal! Rodger is def. a class act all the way. Such fun to watch him play, he's got all the shots and seems to glide around the court. So happy for him to get #7 and regain the world #1!
