Morning Everyone,

I hope you are well and having a good week.

This is a card I have made for my eldest daughter's birthday.  I have coloured the LOTV Summer lady with copics and arranged her on some lovely Pion Design papers, which are all distressed around the edges.  I have added a little floral arrangement, cheesecloth and some lovely lace and pearls.  The little sentiment tags are from Mama Elephant.

I hope you like.

Morning Everyone,

It's time for another challenge over at As You Like It and this fortnight's theme is to showcase a project using your favourite stamp brand (and don't forget to let us know why).

I think that by the amount of stamps I have mine must be Lili of the Valley.   I love cute images and they have such a variety - there's usually one for any occasion you can think of.

For my card I've used an older stamp and this is the second of the 2 baby cards I've made as mentioned in my previous post.

I have coloured him with copics, distressed the edges of the papers which are Maja Design Vintage Baby and slightly inked the edges of the image with weathered wood distress ink.  I have added cheesecloth, a heart shaped doily and a small feeding bottle all from Live and Love Crafts.  Three little flowers and a few pearls finish it off.

The sponsor for this challenge is

and the lucky winner will receive a £10 voucher

So, if you'd like to pop over to As You Like It you'll be able to see the lovely projects from the rest of the team.

Morning Everyone,

I hope you've had a good weekend and managed to do some of the things you enjoy most.

My daughter asked me if I'd make a new baby boy card for one of her friends so I've made 2 in different styles for her to chose from.  This is the first one:

I've used a pre-coloured LOTV image and added a few embellies, but I don't like to put too many on for a boy.  I think you can make girls' cards a lot prettier but I'm never sure what to put on with boys. The sentiment tags are also LOTV which I stamped in Rusty Hinge distress ink to go with the kraft card.  Black didn't seem to really go with all the brown.

I'll see you in a few days with the next baby card. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday 467 - Anything Goes
Fab n Funky - Baby
A Gem of a Challenge - At least 3 B's (Baby, button, bow, blue, brown)
The Ribbon Girl - Any Card
Polka Doodles - Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting and any comments you leave are appreciated.
