What's with all these baby cards?

While browsing your wonderful posts today, one really caught my eye, it was an easel card by Christina at  she said that her image came from another site which I had to have a look at.  Her post today showed a card from Paper Creator and after I had a look I downloaded a few digi kits from them.  My card is made from one of them.

Easel card cut with Spellbinders Grand Labels One
Paper and image download in digi kit from Paper Creators
Sentiment from Cuddly Buddly Barbara Anne Williams Wee Ones Digi stamps
Coloured with Promakers (see I am using them)
Not too sure about the snail  top right may have to swap that for a ribbon
Bling from stash (although I feel I should have left that off)
I fell in love with the duckling image and just had to make a card with it. I am hoping to get back on track soon as I can because I am sadly lacking in the crafting scene recently.  I have plenty time to craft but the motivation seem to have gone.  Maybe having some images I like will get me going again.
We had a lovely day here today, bit cold but sun shining.  So at lunchtime I took the dogs for a long walk and when we arrived at the field and I let them of the lead it was like being released from prison.  Off they went rolling in the grass and chasing one another and just generally having a great time.  It was nice to see them playing as they have spent a lot of time on the lead, mainly for my benefit as I hate slippy conditions and did not want to have to chase them to get leads on.  We were all pretty puffed when we arrived home so while they lazed around I had a coffee and a browse and that was when I noticed Christina's post and that led to Paper Creators site where I downloaded my goodies.  It is supposed to rain tomorrow so I don't expect we will be walking far but it the forecast is wrong we may do the same as today.
I hope you are all well and crafting,  I have a lot of posts to catch up with tonight so take care and wrap up warm.

  6. Wilma, it sounds like you all had a great walk. It does make a difference when you can get out to blow those cobwebs away. Like you we had a lovely day, I am looking after the girls granny who has come up to house and dog sit, but she doesn't like walking the dogs on her own, so no change for me. I am having to go to work 7 days this week.

    I just love that ducking image, and what a lovely baby card you have made. I bet you will get back in the crafting mode once we get better days and some sun, it makes a difference to us all. Take care. Hazel

  7. Might just have to check this out Wilma. This is a great image. I still use pre-made toppers and diecuts sometimes. Great if you need something quickly, or just want a change. This is a lovely card. Christine x

  8. Good Morning Wilma,
    I LOVE!!! this a beautiful baby card. Must check out that site.
    I am not good in the winter, like you I lack motivation but have to say Blogging has made me do things I never would have. I normally would have parked my "but" and read loads of books. This year has been different I have moved myself.
    Never mind Spring is just round the corner.............Oh! I do hope so anyway.

  10. Hello Wilma, so plessed you manage your long walk with the dogs. Everybody hates to be cooped up when the weather is so bad. Like you I'm terrified of slipping.

    Your inspiration will come back, but you know I think your cards are lovely, this little baby card is so sweetand it makes a nice change to do a different shaped card. We are all needing a bit of sunshine!!. Enjoy the rest of the weekend, take care, kate x
