Hello everyone I'm running a tad late today I wont bore you & will just get on. I have 2 cards to show you today..............I know check me out lol. It seems like there is something in the water at the mo as there seem to be babies popping up......or should I say out everywhere lol. Including my own special grandchild in January. So I thought I would make a couple of baby cards, ya know to prepare.....psst also cus Pollycraft Challenge is 'Babies' lol...........
WARNING.....Photo heavy
For the first one I saw this image on Paula's card & got an idea straight away so went & brought the image lol.

I have used 'Rocking Horse' from Pollycraft. The idea behind this card is its ok for a boy or a girl. The body I paper-pieced & coloured the rest with Copics & added a gold pearl to the heart on the saddle.
The fabby sentiment is a Basic Grey rub on from Crafty Emma's Store. I added 2 gold pearls to the centres of 2 small flowers.
As you can see I got my sewing machine out & stitched all around the papers..............yay for me!!

I also printed a smaller image for the inside.
The gingham paper, kraft card for matting & plastic bows from my stash.
Added 2 Gardenia Petals & ataached a gold pearl to the centre.
This one of course is for a little prince. I printed the image out twice & cut the cloud from the 2nd one & attached using foam pads.

Image is 'Moon Lullaby' from the Little Stars collection & he has been coloured with Copics & lace stickles added to the stars. Painted the wooden dummy in weathered wood distress paint & white acrylic.
There is also a basic Grey rub on sentiment there but unfortunately it doesnt show up too well.

Usually I decorate the inside but there are times when I just add 120gsm paper to the inside & attach a piece of card to the back so it feels as strong as the front......... I have again also printed a smaller image for on the inside. The sentiment again is a Basic Grey rub on.

Papers on both cards are 'Baby Mine' Fancy Pants on 6x6 On The Edge card blanks also added card candy.

Well if you got to this point well done you...........I actually had a break half way through & had a cuppa & a cherry bakewell tart lol........mmmmm I loves me some cakes.
Right I'm off now to do some hopping so will see ya soonies. Thank you for stopping by it means a heck of a lot my lovelies mmwah.

The Wooden Heart I painted with white acrylic paint then splodged some Tim Holtz clear crackle stuff on.

The sentiment is from Whiff Of Joy & I stamped it on kraft card & inked the edges with TH Vintage Photo ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Nellie die.

The image os course is 'Petal Melody'............isn't she just sooooo pretty!!! This beautiful stamp is exclusive to Crafts & Me store.
She has been coloured with Copics of course & Prisma pencil on her rose.
I've just realised I've forgot to do her bracelet.......oops guess what my job is after lol...

35mm Gardenia flower & 2 Rose Buds. All paper & kraft card have had edges inked with Vintage Photo distress ink. The doily, lace & seam binding ribbon is from my stash. The heart I cut out using a MS punch & then dabbing some paint on it & inking the edge.

Good Times with Mimo........

Hello all my lovelies how are you? WOW arn't these winds just terrible, hope everyone has managed to keep safe out there. My youngest was out for a bit last night & 1 poor couple were told they shouldnt sleep in their house last night & it wasnt deemed safe.........the winds were just that bad.
Anyway onto my card. I actually made this on Saturday but completely forgot about it, the image tho has been coloured for ages!!!
I made a boys card for a change cus I do tend to neglect the male cards at times.

This is 'Mimo Tree' by Bildmalarna.........I've been neglecting these stamps lately & they are on special over at Bunny Zoe's........ You should also check out the new crimbo ones they are gorgeous I had to get them all the other my defence tho Nikki had a bank hol sale on at the time &........well you know how it

I have stitched all around the edge using blue thread.

Buttons are from my stash & I've threaded the same blue thread through them I used for stitching.
This little fella was coloured with Copics & the sky I did with chalks & sprayed with Crafters Companion Spray & Shine.

Used a Whimsy sentiment & cut out the card myself.

Well thats it from me I'm gonna catch up on some commenting as I'm behind then get some DT work done.
See ya soonies my lovelies. Thank you for stopping by I really do appreciate it sooooo much folks mmwah.

Pearl The Mermaid by Saturated Canary..............

Hello my lovelies I am back with a card for you & a new digi image.
Krista who designs the Simply Sassy range for Sugar Nellie has now opened her own digital image shop Saturated Canary so you can now buy her fabulous art in digi I love digi stamps so altho I tried to resist buying any (you dont want to know how many in-inked ones I have) I did weaken & it didnt take long for me to weaken. I thought 'Ooooh I will pop over you know just to have a peekskie..........I will NOT buy any mmmmmmmm would you believe 4 fell into my basket, I tell ya those darn cyber baskets they are lethal........I've heard there is more images this weekend.......I daren't go over yet tho lol....
Anyway here is my first image for you all & I have to say I so enjoyed colouring her especially her hair.

I used Whiff Of Joy 6x6 Paper pad to decorate my 6x6 On The Edge Card blank & used Kraft card from my stash for matting. All paper has been splodged with white acrylic paint.

The gorgeous Silky Crushed Ribbon is sooooo beautiful & was my last so I need to get more now.......oh darn it....ribbon shopping.........;0)

My latest order from Bunny Zoe's contained the fabulous Whimsy Mini Postage stamps & Mini Postage Die which I stamped onto kraft & went around the edge with a touch of white paint.

The gorgeous image is 'Pearl a Mermaid' & isnt she just sooooo pretty. I coloured her with Copics & kept to light colours to show just how pretty she is........& also cus I luuurrrvvve blue's lol.
I cut her out & placed her on foam pads & lay her on some blue paper to imitate water....well the colour anyway lol.

The leaves I cut using a Magnolia Doo Hickey & then attached a Mulberry Daisy.
I enjoyed making this card & it all just flowed together sorry for the pun lol.

Well I'm away now to finish off one of the crochet baby blankets I'm doing for someone, I will be back later to hop along your blogs to catch up with you all.
Thank you so much for stopping by I really do appreciate it mmwah.
