It was our Goddaughters 2nd Birthday on Monday and I made her this card ...the Magnolia image is so her...I choose quite a simple design, and got to use one of my 14 Martha Stewart Border Punches that I bought back from the US with me in November.
The paper was given to my by Vickie..Thanks and the image is coloured using my new Copic Ciao's. I am still learning the art of making the image not appear flat..I surf lots of webistes and blogs and try and pick up hints and tips. I'm sure I will get there one day !
Mia-ann had two parties and as her Godparents..we got to go to both which was great fun.
I was asked to make another card for a little boy who is 5...and she wanted it bright and fun...here is what I came up with..I have also used it for the Mojo Monday Challenge 117 for this week..
I have used another one of the CC designs given to me by my friend I just think he is so adorable. I got to play with my copics again and think that with a bit more practice I will do ok with the whole colouring thing.
I have used the My Minds Eye - Colourful Christmas range of papers and my new Martha Stewart Snowflake Punches...
for the baubles, I coloured them in, then covered them in glossy accents and a few glass bead ( Martha Stewart again) and then the lightest of sprinklings of glitter..
Thanks for looking and have a safe and Happy Christmas
Wow, it seems like ages since I posted last, I have had a bit of a "flurry" - (see what I did there) of Christmas cards to make...and no time to make them...
Here is a card I made last night and finished at stupid o'clock this morning...
This is an image from CC Designs which was sent to me by Vicki ( thanks hun) and coloured in using my new Copic Ciao's...yes I finally have all 144 of them and covet them at the moment like a newborn child...my husband thinks I am completely mad but only us crafters know that feeling when a much sought after stash item arrives !
I used the large Martha Stewart snowflake punch and the McGill punch in the centre, plenty of glitter, Crystals and Bling and the Eskimo Kisses range of paper from Basic Grey.
I hope Emily-May likes her Christmas card from her Mummy and Daddy.
Well can you believe it, I finally manged to get into print, I havea two page spread in January's edition of Craft Stamper...it is on the shelves now...so don't delay, dash out and buy yourself a copy today !!!!
and here is a close up of the article.
Not really much else to add other than I am so chuffed...! If you have the magazine and have read the article, I would love to know what you think.
I am happily married to Tony and we have a son Connor who was a millenium baby...much loved and much spoilt ( we try hard not to...but he is so lovely it often proves impossible). We have three fluffers called Balloo, Gertie and Jessie who are a huge part of our lives.
We are so lucky to live on the south coast with Sandbanks and Bournemouth beach within a few minutes away.
Life is good
