Hello everyone how are you all? Its extremely wet & miserable here by the North Sea...........I'm gonna need my brolly to go into my craft room today.
Now today I have a couple of pics of my grandson Arjay & a card to show you that I made using the very first rubber stamp I brought when I first started crafting.
First one I will show you is the most gorgeous one & that is of course Arjay...........
This was taken last week at mine, this is the day after he came out of hospital. Mammy & daddy had a very important appointment so I was baby-sitting :0)
The tube you see is his oxygen as his lungs are not quite strong enough yet. Would you believe he now weighs 8lb 5oz........... bit of difference to the 3lb birth weight lol. Isn't he just gorgeous, I just want to smother him in kisses & snuggles ;0)
Ok now onto my card that will be a LOT less gorgeous of course...........
This of course is 'Daisy' by Elisabeth Bell for Sugar Nellie. The first stamps I ever brought were 3 Sugar Nellie ones, this one & 2 Manga ones. I actually thought Sugar Nellie was a sweet when I first heard of them, thats how new I was to crafting lol.
This however is my most favourite stamp in all of my whole collection.
The papers are from the gorgeous Maja Design 'Sofiero' Collection & I machine stitched them all & added gesso here & there. They also got distressed & inked. The lace is from my stash & I also added 'Cheese Cloth' & added little touches of Gesso to that as well.
Daisy has been coloured with my Distress Markers & the sky I did with chalk. The little white love heart I made myself with plaster & added a touch of Gesso.
All the flowers are from WOC. I added Pearls from my stash & a 'Shabby Bark Heart' with added Gesso to it. The white frame I also made (I've been neglecting my moulds so made these a few weeks ago) the sentiment is from one of my wood block stamps. The pin is a Jenni Bowlin pin from MCH.
Well as Bugs Bunny says 'That's all from me folks'............I will be back in the morning with my DT card for MCH. I'm at the hairdressers in the morning with Megan we are are having a girly morning getting our hairs done. I'm having a whole new look, yep getting bored & time for a change lol.
Thanks for stopping by it means the world.
Squishy hugs to all mmwah
Thanks for the comments yesterday. My lace storage idea came from this gorgeous blog here. She has something similar in her header. I do have one of those type but I want that stay in my living room ;0)
