Belle and Boo. Mandy Sutcliffe's illustrations of Belle and her rabbit, Boo have a lovely vintage feel about them and take me right back to my childhood. You can even download more outfits for free from Belle and Boo's wonderful blog.
Mandy has also created all sorts of wonderful art prints, books, stationery, homewares and even clothes. I particularly like the 'Bubbles before Bed' book which makes a lovely present for little girls who like to make and do.
I also love this 'Royal Party Parade' limited edition print. It would make a lovely reminder of the Queen's jubilee.

It was Dizzy's birthday last weekend and I finally got round to making the card I have been meaning to do for ages. I have always liked the art of victorian paper cuts and have been meaning to do my own silhouettes of the kids for a while. I am really pleased with this contemporary version of Dax, Arlo and Darcey and think it will look great printed as a large poster. I think I will put it on my list of 'things I want to screen print' in the future. For now it looks pretty good as an inkjet print.

I LOVE this bag by Sally Nencini over at Sisters Guild. Not very practical considering it is 100% lambswool but gorgeous all the same. I would have loved this bag when I was little. Such a shame that Darcey isn't a few years older as she would probably love it too.
