Sweet Little One

One of  my little great grandchildren has turned one and this is her card (late I know). I love this image from Beccy's Place and have had it for ages, first time to use it. It was a freebie from her Numbers category. Quite adorable I think.

Digging Dog

Isn't this the cutest little dog? This adorable image is available at 'from the Heart' Stamps blog and is the free digi of the month at their challenge blog. I  used a sketch  from Tuesday Morning Sketches for the card layout. The image was coloured with Copics and Spellbinders die cuts were used to frame it. The card base is Kraft CS  and all other papers are Stampin' Ups.   I used an embossing folder called bones and paws to add interest to the green rectangle  and finished it off with a button, twine and brown half pearls. The card will go to my great grandson as a Bday card.

Girl in Green

I had coloured this lovely image quite a while ago and rediscovered it the other day. Thought I might as well give it a home so I  created the background, punched some faux stitches and presto, a new card ! Have no idea who will get it and for what occasion but I think  it  is fairly presentable and am sure something will come up!

Baby Boy

Birthday card for a another little one recently born and they have all been boys, three years ago  it was all girls. Nature does seem to even things out. I tend to like to use  pin wheels  as an accent for boys instead of the flowers I would use for a girl.  Using  Stampin' Ups' pin wheel die makes it relatively easy.

Bouncy Baby Boy


Hi everyone and my crafting friends, I am posting for the first time in about a year and half:  Will see how it goes. My family and my  friend's children are having babies after about a 3 year 'dry spell'. I think this is fairly normal as the first ones are out of the diaper  and can basically feed themselves (when it is presented to them).I say yay for I only  have to love them and leave the rearing to the mothers!  Oh how I adore little ones. This card is for the daughter of my yoga  teacher (and friend). who had a bouncy baby boy about a month ago.
