Double Dutch Challenge #37 Alphabet Soup

Hi, as promised this is my second post today.

The Double Dutch Challenge is Alphabet Soup. Make a card or creation in the shape of a letter from the alphabet.

This is my card.
B is for baby.  I printed a letter on the computer cut around it ( several times). Give me the mice and a small pair of scissors and i'm fine, but ask me to follow a line and oh dear!! That's why my sister Jackie and I make a great team, she usually makes and cuts the templates, when we get together X

I'ts 15 x 10.5 cm The chequed paper is printed from the Wild Rose Studio Spring CD. If you like papers to print these are  gorgeous.  I made an insert  from Blueberry Hill paper by Papermania and also for the little shoes, arn't they scrummy. They were made from a template by the very talented Christine Ruff.
The stamps are from Cute Companions which I coloured with my Copic markers and cut them out. A couple of rub-ons from Basic Grey, Sugared some flower braid and  pearl beads for buttons and there you are.!!!

I love making cards with these stamps, if you want to treat yourself to a really great day out then a workshop with their very talented and wonderful designer Jayne Nestorenko is not to be missed. She is posting the new workshops on her site this week. Don't hang around though they go very quickly.

Loads a Hugs

Edit:  the template for the shoes was very kindly given to me by the lovely Christine Ruff. If you would like it please email her at
