Hi Everyone

A big "HELLO" to my new follower Lexie - thank you Lexie for choosing to come and look at my little crafting space.

Today I would like to share with you a card I have made using another of those amazing pre-coloured toppers from The Hobby House and this one is from the Love Me Do Collection and is called "Bird Swing".

I know, I know, I know I keep repeating myself, but if you haven't yet tried any of the pre-coloured die-cut toppers, then what are you waiting for?  The quality of the image and the colours are just second to none, trust me you just have to try them - six images for £1.75, what a bargain.

Here is the full card:

Aw, I so love this image - they are just so cute.

All the goodies to make this card can be found at The Hobby House and the recipe for the card is:

Pre-Coloured Wee Topper Collection:  Love Me Do
Papers:  First Edition - Isabelle
Sentiment Die:  Whimsy - Mini Ticket Die
Sentiment Stamp:  Whimsy - Love Mini Tickets
Cherry Blossoms:  Mulberry Blossom Collection
Ribbon:  Green to Go

I have edged the papers with Antique Linen Distress Ink
I have given the flowers a good coating of Stickles - Star Dust

Before I go, if you can get access to Create & Craft then you need to be tuning in at 1.00pm today to see  The Hobby House in their very first TV appearance where they will be showcasing a new card kit along with some charms and pearls etc - DON'T MISS IT!

And that's it.

Thank you for stopping by and have a lovely weekend.

Take care

Toodle Pip

Well Hazel Hobby House didn't disappoint on C&C. Your craft kit was amazing and so glad it and many other things sold out, so looks like this may be the first of many. You obviously put so much work into it, so well done you and of course to Chris presenting it.
Your card looks gorgeous here on your blog and on TV.
Beautiful work as always

Such a gorgeous card Hazel... and I agree, these toppers are so easy to use and make for a stunning card! I treated myself to quite a few at Harrogate! Love your fab design also.... and WOWWWWWWW to all the cards you made for C & C.. wish we'd have had close ups of them all!

I managed to watch the show on my Ipad later during the day as I'd been out while it was on.. it looked like it went really well.. Chris did a fab job, and I hope to see HH on lots in the future... maybe you demo-ing??

Big hugs... have a good weekend..
