Oh Baby!

Good Evening,

To my lovely followers & all in blogland. 1 more day at work then got a week off, can't wait as hopefully I'll have lots of time to craft.

My card today is a baby card in blue for a boy. The image is from digistamp boutique which was opened in photo shop where I added letters in the hearts to spell "baby". The image was coloured in with pro & flexi markers & chalks. The border was punched out using a Martha Stewart punch that I added gingham ribbon & a bow to.

Sunday Sketch & Stamp #106

Good Morning,

Hope you are all well on this Sunday morning.

We have a new sketch over @ Sunday sketch & stamp I really hope you will join us for this one. I am so looking forward to seeing what you do with Maggie's sketch. As always the DT have created some gorgeous inspiration for you all. Hop on over and have a look. We're sponsored by the fabby Vintage Milly, please visit her site for great digis.
Here's what I've done with the sketch

The image is from LOTV & is coloured in with pro & flexi markers, spectrum noirs & chalks.
The papers are from the pampered pets range by Andrea Jayne, I have used 2 different colour ways of the same design  which could be missed as it is very subtle. The flowers (my Daughter's design) & leaves have been cut on the silhouette. The flowers were chalked on the edges before being rolled & gems have been added to the centres.

Do hop on over

Flower fairy

Good afternoon,

Can't believe how quick this week has gone & I've hardly had time to play. Hasn't the weather been wet & cold, hopefully it will get better soon.

Today's card has been made following the sketch over @ sketch n stash. The image is a new stamp (to me) from Nellie Snellen & has been coloured in using promarkers & flexmarkers. The papers are from raspberry rd & plain white which have been embossed &  have been mounted onto gold mirri. The flower & leaves were cut on the sillouhette, (my duaughter designed the flower template for me & is prepared to share it free of charge to any of you lovely crafters that would like it) it was then rolled using s quilling tool and a card candy has been added to the middle.
