Where Flowers Bloom .....

The adorable stamp is from the Crafter's Companion Mulberry Wood collection, I have coloured it with ProMarkers and added a little Wink of Stella glitter to the centre of the flowers  I chose this image with the two cute little cats on it to fit the theme for the current Craft Room challenge.

Baby Blue

I was asked by a close family friend to make a Christening card for them, I actually made two so that they had a choice and this is the second one.


This one is quite different from the first one, the image is from a kit that I bought from Scrapbookingmad - in the kit the image is actually a pyramid decoupage but I decided to print it several times and fussy cut the image to make traditional decoupage.


I have used several spellbinders dies and computer generated the sentiment.  I also decorated the inside of the card using the same papers.


As with the first card  I have made a matching box with a velum wrap printed in the same pattern as the card.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Come and Get It Challenge - Anything Goes with a Sentiment
Sweet 7 Challenge 2 - Baby
Love to Create Challenge 120 - Mad about Plaid
Crafting from the Heart Challenge 33 - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper August Challenge - Anything goes with Patterned Paper

Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.

For our Godson

I was asked by a close family friend to make a Christening card for them, I actually made two so that they had a choice and this is one of them.


Quite different from my normal style - I have so many dies that I never use and I have decided to make a concerted effort to get them out and play with them more often.

For my card I have used dies from the Tattered Lace Westminster collection, I bought these dies when they were first released and this is the first time I have used them.


I have used a LOTV topper and computer generated sentiments. The card stock is Joanna Sheen's Elegance Satin printed with two colours from the Pink Petticoat Natural Neutrals collection.

I also made a matching box with a velum wrap printed in the same colour as the card.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sweet 7 Challenge 2 - Baby
Krafty Girlz Challenge 25 - 25 Anything Goes
Nutcrafters Challenge 75 - Celebrations (Christening)
Sister Act Card Challenge 71 - Anything Goes
Scrappers' Delights Challenge 29 - Anything goes/die cuts
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 191 - Christmas, Children, or Critters
City Crafter Challenge 225 - Inspiration image (I was inspired by the colours and the young chlid)

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog, your company is much appreciated.
