Happy 2nd Birthday Mia Moo

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.

Thanks for looking

Happy Christmas....and a Mojo Monday 117...

I was asked to make another card for a little boy who is 5...and she wanted it bright and 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

A Pink 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 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.

Thanks for looking

Happy Anniversary Mum..

Just a quick post to show you the card I made for my Mum to be given to her by my Dad...45 years of wedded bliss...I think that all depends on whether you ask Mum or Dad !!!!

I have used the Playful Petals range of papers from Daisy Bucket, I know they have been out forever but I still love the colours and keep coming back to them.  The Image is from Pollycraft designs .

Using wire and swarovski bi-cone beads, I have made a Dragonfly using the Bazill Tulle for the wings, I think it looks kinda cute.

Thanks for looking
