Another Birthday Card!

Hi All

In our family May is the busiest time of years for birthdays! We have 6 birthdays and another little nephew due in May also! I think their tellies must of been on the blink in August!LOL

So I've made a card for my SIL from my little monster and i thought a nice cute card would be nice for an auntie but I'll just have to make sure when it comes to making a card from me and the huby(her brother) that it's a bit dark/gothic as that is our SIL all over!

I'm also entering the following challenges:

Creative Card Crew challenge 46 - going dotty (glitter dots on my flower)

One Stop Craft challenge 72 - Let it shine (lots of stickle glitter!!)

Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge 24 - Barb's sketch

Tales from Pollycraft - DT Call; using Duckie digi stamp from Pollycraft

The Craft Garden March Challenge - Take inspiration from Blossom tree pic (using pink's and flowers remind me of blossom trees)

Hope your all keeping well!

Take care

Thank you card for mum


Hi All, hope your well! We have been to Ikea today to try and figure out what colour scheme to have the living room and looking at completley new furniture, but that didn't happen as our little boy of ours was a little monkey and we didn't pay much attention to the lovely goodies on show but instead bought him a big cute crocadile for 3.99 LOL at least we had a day out!

I've made another card for my mum for mother's day to say thank you for looking after Ethan while i am at work so in a way its from all of us and it also ties in with the following challenges:


Here's what I've used:

Papermaina, textured cardstock, sunshine capsule papers, flowers, buttons and ribbon
Daisy and Dandelion - Some bunny loves you clear stamp set free with Docrafts Magazine issue 19

Hand stitching too at the top and bottom and leaves on the paper and stamp It's probably hard to see as I've taken the photo with my phone as my batteries have died in the camera!LOL

Take care
