God Daughter

I made this card for my Niece and my God Daughter Libby.  It was for her Christening Day but I guess it could also be for a Birthday.

I used an image by Sherrie Baldy.  The die cuts are spellbinders.  The bunting is made using a Stampin Up punch.  The punch on the bottom is a Martha Stewart one.

The image is coloured using promarkers.

Thank you for looking.

I can't believe how long it's been since my last post!

Lots of things have happened including the very sad loss of my Father in law in August.

It has been a very hard year for my Husband and myself .

Some good news ! I became an Aunty again in May this year and she is beautiful!

I am very much looking forward to some crafting.  It's been a while.

I hope you are all well and will try to catch up on your blogs very soon.

Butterflies and flowers

Good morning crafters! Happy Easter Monday to you all.

I have been playing again! This card is following the same design as yesterday but using different elements.

I have added a punched boarder to this card.
Iam in love with the Spellbinder butterflies! So pretty and I love to layer them up.
I have added some liquid pearls to the butterflies and some pearl emblishments to the bigger butterfly along with some to the larger flowers.

All the flowers have been made using my spellbinders dies. I love them!
I really felt like I had created a complete card and the embellishments. Thank you gain Sue Wilson and Spellbinders!

Thank you Sue!

Hello everyone!

Well it has been sometime (over 5 months) since I made a post! I have missed being on here and it is great to be back.

A lot has happened over the past 18 months and my working life has changed quite a bit! After months of changes I have now settled down in to a job where I get to work from home! It is great as I am able to be with my dog all day! She helps out in my office lol!

Anyway, I must say a BIG THANK YOU TO SUE WILSON . Sue does not know me but she has inspired me so much over the past weeks with her wonderful spellbinder creations. She has made me want to go back in to my craft room! The card below is inspired by Sue. I was watching her on create and craft with the different pick of the weeks from spellbinders and I treated myself to a set for my 40th birthday. I could not wait for them to arrive so I looked at the dies I had and gave it a go!
I cut the card to size first and then positioned the dies. I just wanted a little of the colour showing through.
I then stamped the sentiment. I embossed the bottom of the card which is hard to see as there are lots of flowers!

I added the flowers and a "Sue" bow with embellishments, Added some pearls to the flowers and the top of the card.
Overall I am very pleased with the result.
Yesterday my pack of sepllbinders came so I will be back with more!

Thank you so much for staying with me.
