Baby bump

Good morning everyone..

Where are you all ??? My personal blogland is very quiet, hardly any of the blogs I follow are posting and no comments on my last two posts. Where is everyone.. out Christmas shopping ?????

Anyway, following a request from my beloved, I made this card in preparation for a colleague of his who is leaving to have a baby.

The image is a digi stamp from Stamping Bella, called ' Blooming Lullubelle '. I printed it off twice , once on patterned paper, (Vintage Rose from Craftwork Cards) and after colouring in the blank one with promarkers, I decoupaged the dress, bag and flowers with the paper .

The stamps in the background of the picture were from a set by Hobby Art called Woodland Scenes.

I layered the image with Frame Pointy #1 die cut from Go Kreate, used a contrasting backing paper and added some flowers from my stash.

I'm not having a good phone has broken and is off being mended and I lost a filling and half of my tooth, dentist later... :(

Wish me luck !

Ooh La la

Hello everyone

Just a quick post from a cold and grey Colchester. Weather getting more November like although we had a lovely weekend. Fresh but sunny.

Back in October I went to the Sincerely Yours papercraft show in Biggin HIll.
A good time was had by all as usual and I bought a CD by Kraftyhands Ltd. It was called Fleur Francais and contains lots of vintage papers and images.

After printing out the images and a little inking around the edges of course, I had a card for my nieces birthday.

Had a good weekend and made all the cards I need up to the end of the year ! I can show you some another time and can now get started on my Christmas cards.

It's cold outside..

We have beeen so spoilt by the weather over the last few months that I was shocked to feel so cold outside today.

My travels found me eating my lunch overlooking the sea at Clacton. It was grey and the sea muddy looking, such a change from a few weeks ago when I was last there.

Oh well, we have Christmas to look forward to !!

I have some birthday cards to make before I get going on my Christmas ones.('What you haven't started yet ?' I hear you all cry.)

So after last weeks Kanban feast, I dug out some Hunkydory. This is from a die-cut sheet from The Glamour Girls collection, 'Polka Princess'.
I have actually made quite a few cards from this sheet. They look so nice and fresh. Bandbox, I think is the word from back in the day..

Kanban Krazy...

Hello there...I seem to have gone a little Kanban crazy at the moment.

I saw the stamps of these images some time ago and loved them but never got around to buying them. Imagine how pleased I was when I saw the die cut version which was just right for the card for my daughters first wedding anniversary.

I cant believe that year has gone so fast !

I used Kanban Bella Damask - Mocha backing paper, topped with a doily, and then Catalina die cut images. Other bits and bobs from my stash.

Happy Anniversary darlings xxx
