Not at all sure about this one! But I do love the papers - Basic Grey (again!!) - this time Pheobe. This is a fantastic selection of papers - gorgeous colours! This time I've used a Dolly Mama stamp - its the mix and match one from the clear set. I love the hair! She's way too tall to fit on the card (154mm x 154mm card). Coloured with watercolour pencils (again! - I am such a creature of habit!). This time I used my Crop-o-dile to set the eyelets and added a wee bit ribbon.
Just called this one "Relax". I've had this stamp for a while and this is the first time I've used it. I have no idea who it's by as there is no info on the stamp! I love it though - so relaxing! All that is missing is the glass of wine and some candles! The papers are Basic Grey - Periphery. The alphabet is Sizzix "Man Oh Man". Not sure when you would give a card like this but it was fun to make!
I'm all out of sorts and needing to keep busy - our cat is away to the vets for a scan - she was having real difficulty breathing this morning. She's old and the vet did warn us that she may not come through the scan - she has, and now we have to play a waiting game.
My enthusiasm for card making has disappeared for the moment. It will be back. Rather than totally waste the day I thought I would make a scrapbook page to make me smile - so here she is - my Princess. This was taken when we were on holiday in October.
The papers are Rhonna Farrer - French Twist. The colours are so bright and cheery.
Called this one "Love" - not only because it shows two of the people I love most in this world but also because this is one of those everyday moments that make life worthwhile. Papers and die cuts are from Deja View.
I've started scrapbooking for a change. Sometimes I'm just not in the mood to make cards - think that's probably because I have too much stuff! I also have so many photos that are either hidden away in albums or just stored on the hard drive - I think I need to do some justice to them and make them into future memories! So I'm just starting out.. lots of practice needed I think! I've used papers and die cuts from Deja Views.
Not a great pic as it was all a bit cutthroat trying to get close! But here is my little bunny - she sat in front of the manger and sang (occasionally!). She loved it! And I made it all the way through without causing shares in Kleenex to rocket!
It's my little girls nativity play tomorrow - the first one! What state am I going to be in? I predict major tears (me, not her!). I can't even practice "little donkey" with her without getting all soppy! Oh dear! I should add, she's the rabbit (?) and she has to sit in front of the manger with the sheep. If I manage to hold it together it will be a miracle!
This is my mum's christmas card - I was really really stuck what to make so I hope she likes it! Everything on the card, with the exception of the word "mum" is by Bo Bunny. This was a kit I got from QVC earlier in the year but hadn't used - probably because it seemed ridiculously expensive considering the contents! But yes, I had to have it. I do love purple!
I was totally stuck for a birthday card for a little boy who's into Thomas The Tank Engine - didn't even want to think about the subject of copyright... So here is my attempt at a train card. Made from 4 sheets of DCWV cardstock and some sparkly black card. Along with some Sizzix and QK die cuts to add the names etc.
