Baby Alana

I thought I would try and get making cards, so here I have made a card for my Cousin who has just had a Baby Girl called Alana. I decided to make an Easel card and followed the sketch over at Papertake Weekly. I used papers from Pink Petticoat, not my usual for a Baby card right enough. That's the problem with moving eh. I've managed to pack my most used things to hand, but I guess you always decide you want to use something else when you can't eh. I am also going to enter it into A Spoonful Of Sugar where the theme is - Celebrations. I guess you can call a Baby something to celebrate - yeah. And I also want to enter it into Mo's Digital Challenge since the image is from Mo's Digi's and the theme over there is Babies. I saw this image and just had to get it for my Cousin. I cut the circles out with nesties and the swirls are a Marianne D die. I have also used some Craftwork card candy and some heart gems. I have also added a wee bit of black ribbon at the bottom of the image, and printed out the text.

The Sugar Bowl #35

First of all - excuse the wonky photo. It's been one of those days, and it's in focus, so is going to do. When I saw the sketch over at The Sugar Bowl, for some reason this image sprung to mind. I knew it wouldn't fit in the circle, so decided to make it look like he's in the spotlight. (Maybe?). They also want to see some recycling. I decided I wanted to use a can ring pull, but couldn't seem to fit it in. So I decided to use a button from my "off clothes" button box. But then I put the button on top of the ring pull and hey - I kinda liked that, so there it stayed. The papers are a download from Tinker & Co (I think) and I printed out the text. Although the text was actually a bit bigger than I would have liked, it still works. Oh and course my image is from Sugar Nellie.

Winter Wonderland gift card holder

I got a bit carried away with this one. The challenge over at Winter Wonderland is to make a gift card holder for Christmas. I decided to make 2 - a his and hers for Hubbies kids. Well I say kids, but they can now be classed as young adults I think. (Boy, that makes me feel old). I don't usually make these, but think I might have to make some more. I kinda like the dinky size of them. I will have to find where they do their shopping, so they can actually get a Gift card that they can use eh.

Anyway, for the Santa card, the papers are from Sweet shoppe Designs and are by Zoe Pearn. The Santa is a High Hopes stamp. I have used the EK Success snow flake border punch, but you have to look real close to see it, and printed out the text. For the Rabbit card, the papers are Pink Petticoat and the stamp is Kraftin Kimmie. I used just white card for the mat and inked the edges with Distress ink, and again printed out the text.
