Christening Card

Back again as promised,
This time I'm sharing a recent commission!
I was asked to make a Christening card & a little keepsake!

I have used the gorgeous Summer Church from LOTV
Which sadly isn't available at the moment, and not entirely sure if it will back!
I've made it very girly with the addition of lots of flowers, pearls and a bit of lace
I also made a little chipboard tag to go with it.
I was so happy to hear from the recipient, who loved it so much she has put it into a deep frame with a few other mementos 

Thanks for stopping by

Peace on Earth

Hi, hope you've had a good week. 
I have a few cards to share over the next few days.
Just haven't had time to upload them all yet.

I adore this image from polkadoodles
These gorgeous stamps were extremely popular and sold out several times.
This one was is called Blessings and she's from the "Heavenly" collection


I have coloured Winnie with distress inks and have used the 
gorgeous bauble paper from Paper Heaven 2
I have kept my card quite simple as I think the image is so elegant.
The sentiment is from the  Christmas download set!

Thank you for looking

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Good morning,
I'm here to share a card I've made for Polkadoodles.
The DT team have worked to the theme of "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" but as usual you can play along with "anything goes"

You know Christmas is finally here when it's time for you to leave a little treat for Santa and his team, so with that in mind I've decided to use the gorgeous image "Leaving Mince Pies"


I have coloured Winnie with distress re-inkers and, although you can't see it, I have used a glitter pen to add some sparkle to her fur.
The "snow" on the poinsettia is structure paste, sprinkled with some glitter.
I absolutely adore the Winterland paper I have used and I must confess it has been my go to favourite this Christmas. The sentiment is from the really useful "Winnie White Christmas Download" set and it's well worth a look as it has over 60 Christmas sentiments.

I do hope you join us with this weeks challenge.

 but Lisa has told me they’re hopeful getting it back on rubber!


As always I have used distress inks for colouring,
I love the autumnal feel of these papers too!

Ballet Practice

Hi everyone,
I’m back with another make.
This time it’s a card for my lovely sister in law,
It was her 50th birthday last week and I know she loves ballet.
I wanted to use a more “grownup “ image and this beauty from Mo’s digital pencil was perfect.


I have used distress re-inkers to colour the image, I couldn’t find any grey pearls to match, so made my own using a hole punch and glossy accents.

I hope you like it!
Back again soon with a card for the polkadoodles guest spot.

Hugs

The bows in Winnie’s hair and the bouquet are paper pieced 
to match the backing papers.

I have added one to my die cut tag in the spray of flowers 
which are from The Ribbon Girl
