Leigh-Ann went on Maternity

One of my lovely work colleagues left at the end of October to begin her maternity leave and this was the card I made from the office.

It's an 8x8" card with papers from Doodlebug.

The image is Stamping Bella - Uptown Girls - which I have coloured with Copics.

By the time this is blogged she will have had her baby!

Good Luck Leigh-Ann.

Rowan was 6!

Crazy Birds were back for this card for my great-nephew.
The card is 8x8" and the papers are from the Bo Bunny Basics range plus some Bazzill.

The letters were cut using a Bigz die and some cardboard, inked then glossed and finished with a white gel pen. Fronds are a new Tonic die recently purchased.

The image is stamped onto watercolour card which I have stencilled with Distress Inks.
The image is also coloured with Distress pens and a water brush.

Loving the new accessories too!

Some bright butterflies were added to finish the effect.

It's been a while now since his birthday but I hope he had a fabulous day!

A good cause and Chocolate Cake!

My lovely friend Jill of Cardinal Colours has been collecting craft items for a lady raising funds to get her daughter, Megan, some life changing equipment.

I had a kit from Hunkydory that I bought last year and had never used so I made some of them up for her.  It was a poppy collection and I think I bought it to make the exploding cards at the bottom.

If you have any items you could donate, please contact Jill via the link above - I am sure they would be very gratefully received!

This was at our October crop so Lynn made me an early birthday cake as I would be away for November's.
It was delicious Lynn! -Thank-you :)

Thanks for taking a look

Baby Evie

I'm back to playing catch up again as I've not blogged for a while.

A colleague at work asked me to make the following for her friends new arrival.
It's the same style as I have previously made with the addition of an elephant again as a special request.

The card is 8x8" and covered with a patchwork of Doodlebug papers.

The elephant is a Crafter's Companion stamp which I have coloured with Copics.

The Bunting was created with a Stampin' up punch and some "rub-on" letters threaded onto pink ribbon.

Welcome to the world Evie.
