Fit Chicks

This stamp was one of bargain buys from the last craft show at the NEC in Birmingham (only three weeks to the next one and counting ....) I think the pink was just a must!!

New Baby

I was asked to make a keepsake card for Noah (new baby to some friends of mine) and managed to get his first photo. Taken when he was only around 1//2 hr old on Tuesday, I thought it would be nice to use a scrapbook style layout.

The alphabet is Penny Black and the backing papers K & Co. Photo courtesy of Noah's auntie Debbie and her mobile phone - the wonders of technology .......

Chocolate Anyone?

I just love this House Mouse stamp but haven't used it before. My daughter had her birthday a couple of days ago and, as she is a real chocoholic, I thought this would be perfect for her.

The image is watercoloured using pencils, the lettering is using the curly alphabet from Cuttlebug and the backing papers by K & Co. The greeting is also a House Mouse stamp.

Penny Black Challenge - Week 36

This weeks challenge was a sketch and I have had soooo many cards to make this week, it seemed a shame to waste the opportunity!

I just love this Penny Black cat and decoupaged the washing for him and added a couple of "real" pegs. The image was watercoloured and the backing papers are by K & Co. The ribbon was stamped with a Penny Black greeting using Stazon, a couple of flowers and a few frops of liquid pearls, phew another one down ......

Black and Orange Mini Challenge

I have made this as a mini challenge set by a Sarn (just discovered it was actually set by Fae) , a friend of mine and the just for fun challenge was to create a black and orange card and add at least two separate embellishments. Eeh I did struggle for a bit with this, orange is not a ususal choice really. I then decided that it would suit an oriental theme - so here is my offering!!

The dragon was stamped and embossed onto black card which I then painted with the nearest I had to orange of twinkling H2O's. I then rubbed over the image so that the embossed outline would show through. Added a couple of Japenese little "coiny" looking thingies fastened on which ribbon and some Japanese symbols (I hope they don't say anthing rude .....)

Little Sis's Birthday

These cards were all made for my Sister, Denise's 40th Birthday. The Penny Black sheep from me (never too serious of course) one from her husband (I think you can guess which one that is ....) and another to go with the present the whole family bought her.
