Monday

Babies babies and more babies

Seems everyone around me is having babies at the mo so I thought I would make a few baby cards just in case.
The images are from this A4 set at digi stamp boutique



I set the image to print directly onto the card blank and added my own sentiment
Then printed the image again onto patterned paper and did a little paper piecing added onto 3d foam pads for dimension
Added a strip of coordinating paper with some faux stitching and a couple of buttons to finish

Hope you like them and that you are all enjoying this bank holiday..typical BH weather here....blummin miserable..lol

Cute, cute ,cute ,cute cute.....

Cute, cute blummin cute!!! lol
But aren't they though????
I had a bit of me time last night and managed to make 3 whole cards.
Ok I know they are very simple but 3 in one sitting I must have found Mr mojo hooooray!!!


I am in love with this little fella
He is a new release from digi stamp boutique
called Bob. Isn't he adorable?
You can find other members of his family here


And here is a card for my brother...
As soon as I saw this one I knew it would be perfect it is the spit of him
Again the image is from digi stamp boutique
he is called snoozing chap and you can find him here



Can you spot a common theme???? lol
Yes another image from digi stamp boutique. You can get spike here .
I am so chuffed that I was asked to be GDT. I was already in love with Sally-Annes images but I think I am becoming a little obsessed lol. They are just sooooo easy to colour and so versatile. There is literally an image for every occasion/person you can think of. I Luv um!!

Anyway I am feeling a bit brighter today so I am off out now into the veggie patch to do a bit of weeding/planting and to soak up a few rays. Then hopefully a nice shower and a long walk along the canal with darling hubby this evening with a stop at a couple of our favourite watering holes along the way :) Happy days!!

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend and enjoy this glorious weather

Thursday

Welcome...

....Little one

Some more super cuteness from the digistampboutique


This is one of the images from the very sweet offer of the month

How adorable????

I have coloured the image with prisma colour pencils. The patterned papers are from free downloads.
I printed the sentiment on comp and added some faux stitching. ribbon and button to finish.


I have to apologise again for the lack of posts and comments recently. I am not feeling tip top at the mo . My stomach is giving me problems again and it has really taken it out of me. Just in time for the nice weather too. I love to go for long walks or bike rides along the canal when it's nice but the way I am feeling at the mo I don't think that is gonna happen ...groan!!!

Hope you are all well and enjoying this beautiful weather.
Tata for now

More fantabulous news

The very lovely Ruth from A Passion for stamps has asked me to design some cards using her gorgeous digi images

I first "met" Ruth over on the Docrafts forum. She used to draw a lot of the images for her stunning cards and after some encouragement we talked her into producing some stamps and then in February this year she decided to release some of her Beautiful designs as Digi's

So without further ado ..here is my first card




The image is called Two Roses Isn't it Absolutely gorgeous?? I added the wording myself and printed out onto cream card then coloured with prisma colour pencils.

I then embossed the background on my cuttlebug using stylised flowers and script folder then ink around the edges very lightly using antique linen distress ink.
I finally added a little sheer ribbon and a couple of pearls to finish.

I got the inspiration from this card from the fab Julie I just love the way Julie lightly inks around the edges of her cards to add just the right amount of definition and all the embossing she uses.. Thanks Julie

Now I think you will agree that this is NOT my usual style of card..Very grown up for me (growing up at last my ma will be pleased lol) :-P But I had the best time making it..

I am entering this card into the papertake weekly challenge
where the theme is do something different. Deffo different for me ..grown up

Hope the start to your week has been as fab as mine
Take care and happy crafting

Sunday

Meet Martha ..

Cute cute cute..... that's what I think of Martha
She is one of this family of monkeys which is the new offer of the month over at digi stamp boutique


I coloured Martha with prismas colour pencils and blended with sansodor
The flowers I cut from a free download at summertime designs called beautimous
And stuck then down randomly to create my background

I hope you like it..The pictures aren't brill because it is a bit grey here today.. so it's not as vibrant as it is in real life:(

Of now to colour some more images and may even be back later with another card.
I know two in one day..whatever next lol

Hope you are enjoying your Sunday and thanks for stopping by
