'New'


Good morning everybody and what a beautiful morning it is too! The sun is out and the rain has stopped at long last! but most importantly of all, the boys behaved themselves last night! I went up to check on them at 11.30 pm and to my horror, they were still awake! but they were as quiet as little mice and didn't get out of their beds, so a good night was had by all!

The challenge on Daring Cardmakers this week is:

"....I would like our cards to celebrate 'New'. So not only New Year, but maybe New Home, New Baby, New Job or maybe a card for someone who is starting a new chapter in their life...."

This was quite an easy choice for me as I love making baby cards so I found my old favourite, Penny Black. I stamped it onto white c.s. and coloured with Brushables adding a little Stickles to the daisy. This was then layered onto Pebbles Inc. gingham paper and pale blue Bazzill c.s. with a little piece of "It's A Boy" ribbon. I covered the actual card with the pale blue c.s. and Doodlebug paper and then mounted the image onto it with foam pads. Finally, some Dovecraft ribbon, a Prima flower and a spotty brad were added as a finishing touch.
Hope you all have a good Sunday!

Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.







Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.
