Just for Roo x


I'm sending a parcel of goodies to my brother's with a mixture of birthday and Christmas goodies so I needed to get my nephew's birthday card made in plenty of time.... It's not his birthday for a month yet! My nephew's name is Richard but we all call him Roo so this is Just For Roo! :-)

I've been searching through all my crafty stash and found my Tatty Teddy stuff that I've barely used since I got it - naughty, naughty! So I thought I'd make good use of it for this card....

The hidden tag completes the sentiment....

A close up....

And a better piccie of the image....

I used:
Image - Tatty Teddy, Me to You
Papers - Me to You
Peel offs - Me to You
Sizzix tag die
Buttons - Papermania
Cord - Stash

CRAFT - Stars in your eyes
Sarah Hurley - Buttons
Sketch 'n' Stash - Fab sketch (neglected stash: Me to You range)
Whoopsi Daisy - Colours of Winter

Right, I'm off to visit your lovely blogs while listening to the fab concert for Children in Need!!! Brilliant so far. I sold all my Pudsey Bear calendars by the way - all 40 of them! I'm quite pleased with myself :-) I hope they raise lots of money!!!

Love 'n' hugs,

Hi Mel, big congrats on selling 40 Pudsey calendars, you should feel very proud of yourself. This is a fab card, what's there not to like about Tatty Ted! The little buttons are just perfect.

Hi Mel, I'm a Brummie living in the USA and a huge card maker. I follow your blog an a regular basis and truly enjoy it and the allotment blog! I read a few weeks ago that you went to a demo at your local craft store, could you please send me details on where it is. I try to get home every other year and hunting out craft stuff is a must.....still have to have a crafting fix even when on my hols!!!! I'll be back in Brum in March so if you know of any good craft stores you think are worth a look could you let me know. is where you can contact me if you have time. Huge thanks Stacey
