Bath Time

Today's In The Pink theme is to create a card for a child or baby so I've used this cute image from LOTV which I've not used in a while. I've tried to be really soft on the colouring and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I hope you like it too. :0)

Smile

I've used the super cute Leo the Balancing Stuffie and a Mama Elephant Creative Cuts Smile Script Die to create this uber simple card.  I was really nervous about die cutting the image after I'd spent so long painting him, so instead I stamped the image again and coloured in a small portion to ensure that I cut the die straight before adding it on top of my main image.

Life is a balance

The theme at As You Like It Challenge this fortnight is to show us your favourite animal.  I love most types of animals (except creepy crawlies) but most of all I do love kitties of all sizes and I'm slave to two rescued felines at home.

Bunny Cuddles

I've splashed out on a fair few Bellas lately and this is my first inking of Becky.  I've followed a sketch, but added on some embellishment in the form of flowers, ribbon and some pearls (my three favourites).  The frills on her skirt were a bit daunting, but not enough to deter me. Cute huh!

The burgundy ribbon and flowers have come out quite a bit darker on the photo than it is in real life which is a shame. :0(

Good Luck

Today is my first post since I joined the uber talented DT at My Mum's Craft Shop and I'm a teensy bit nervous!

My d├ębut creation features Stamping Bella's Woodsies Maisy and Madeline have some tea. It's my first time stamping these little furballs too, and I must admit I think they're adorable.

I made this card as a Good Luck card, but really the image could be appropriate for almost any occasion, possibly even a 'with sympathy' which I find is a really difficult theme to get right.

I also think this image would make a great 'thinking of you' card, which are my favourites because those kind of cards just whisper in someone's ear: 'even though it's not a special occasion day, you're still in my thoughts'.

Oliver Game Boy

I've got a clean and simple card to share tonight, featuring one of the new teenager Oliver stamps from Lili of the Valley.  I really struggle with masculine cards, so I hope this one fits the bill!

Time for Cuddles

I'm sharing a clock today which I made using my usual clock template.  A lovely lady had ordered 2 baby cards for her newborn niece, so I made her this clock as an extra (mainly because I like making them!) and personalised it for her.



It's also perfect to support the APRIL challenge at Lili of the Valley as I've used Aqua, Pink and Ivory. Click on the image below to take you to the challenge details:

A Spot of Gingham

The theme at As You Like It Challenge today is to tell us what you like making other than cards, and I must admit that I have a huge weakness for boxes. Especially cute boxes.  As we're sponsored by Lawn Fawn, I've used a couple of their dies (I may have a couple of these box dies to choose from in my stash!).  I've used the milk carton and the pillow box dies to create two Spring-themed boxes featuring a Spring lamb from the Farmyard Friends set at Lili of the Valley.

Baby Pink Bear

There's a new challenge at Lili of the Valley where we're celebrating APRIL with the theme A.P.R.I.L. standing for Aqua, Pink, Red, Ivory and Lilac (you have to use at least 3 of the colours).

I've chosen Aqua, Pink, Red and Ivory (I couldn't quite manage to get the Lilac in for a "full house" unfortunately). This card was one of two commissioned cards I had for a new baby. I was asked to get quite a bit of wording on this particular card, so I decided to use some cloud dies to frame the blocks of text.  Lining the text up to fit inside the dies was somewhat of a challenge in itself though!
