Hasnt this year flown by, not long till we are in the last quarter!  I made this baby card for a friends new baby.  The image is from wee stamps which I have coloured with water colour pencils.  On the inside I have made a pocket for a tag, and have decorated it with a  baby sentiment.  The opposite page has a doily, a butterfly cut from a papertry die, a rose from WOC, and a charm in the shape of a rocking horse. A magnolia die called Tildas old lace, has been used for all the lace trimmings and the paper is pink and white spot on one side and pink and white stripes on the reverse which worked well with both side differing slightly. Im entering this card in the challenge called Charmed over at Lets Craft and Create, The Paper Shelter anything Goes and Southern Girls Anything Goes

Its been a while

Gosh its been a while.  A lot of working and sleeping and not much else for the past three weeks.  The other chef cut her finger so I had to step up and do both shifts and it has been taxing to say the least.  I have had a couple of days off now to get myself back in the zone and am feeling a lot better. The card today is a round easel card for something different for me.  The papers are Bearly Mine, with kraft cardstock.  The image is from Tickled pink stamps, vintage Evie, who has been coloured in monochrome.  Ive added hat netting accross the top to give a veiled effect, along with pearls and feathers to complete the Charleston look.  Im not sure where I bought this lace from, but it was ideal for using on a circle.  The flowers are from W>O>C. along with some crystalina glitter.  Im entering my card today in two challenges:
Lets Craft and Create: Blast from the Past/Digi
The Paper Shelter: Anything Goes .
Thank you for looking and have a good week, its nice to be back.
