Happy Bird-day

Here is a card I've made for my friend Gina whom I haven't seen for years but we still keep in touch. The stamp is from 'Whipper Snapper Designs'. I've coloured the image in Whisper pens, hi-lighted the beaks and stars with glossy accents. The sentiment has been hand written. The backing paper was given to me by Jo. When I get more time I'm going to try and do a bit of decoupaging on this image. I hope you like it.

To A Happy Couple - Anniversary Card

Here I've used the Sugar Nellie image of a very cute couple. The paper was again given to me by Jo. I've coloured the image with whisper pens and added a couple of flowers with a heart button. The front sentiment was stamped in StazOn. This is such a cute image. Hope you like it.

Fifi - Stampingbella

I'd not seen this stamp previously so was really please when I managed to buy this one. It's very versatile, as I have used it for many female birthday cards. I've used Dovercraft backing paper, used a sunshine eyelet, and on the image I used glossy accents on the girls hair as well as on the poodles pom poms. Hope you like it.

Stitch & Craft Show

Went to a Stitch & Craft Show on Saturday with a very dear friend of mine, Janine (who incidentally laughs at me having a blog) and was quite disappointed, especially when there were stands selling...beds...woodcutting tools....food..???? If I'd wanted to buy these sort of items I would have gone to a Home Exhibition, so I don't think I'll bother with the next one. But not all was lost as I did manage to spend some time with Janine after and here I am in her new (old) car. She took me out for a ride in it, it was just like Thelma and Louise gone wrong. It rattled, shaked and made you realise how today's cars had actually become very luxurious. No need for air con in this car. What great fun! Terry......I want one!

Goddaughter Card

I very quickly made this card in between doing some baby books tonight. I have been asked quite a few time for 'goddaughter & godson' cards so here one to start with. The stamp is 'Penny Black', the paper was given to me by Jo at Wimborne market (thanks again), with various pieces of card stock. The wording was produce by the pc with a little bow embellishment and ofcourse I've used some glossy accents on the umbrella and raindrops. Hope you like it. Jeanette

Baby Boy Book

Here is another one of my books I made tonight. I don't know what it is but there seems to be more baby boys born than girls, as I seem to make more boy books than girls! I quite like the pale blue and lemon together, as this gives a real fresh look. I've used various embellishments, paper and card stock. These books are quite easy to make but they are extremely time consuming. I should have really been reading my notes ready for my exam next Wednesday but ............I got that crafting urge again!!! Hope you like it. Jeanette

Various Birthday Cards

Had a disastrous evening class tonight, couldn't remember a thing after having the Easter holidays and I've got to sit the exam next week.......nightmare, so I thought rather than getting in a state about it I'd chill out and make a few cards and here they are.
The 'Winnie Pooh & Piglet' stamp I think I 'borrowed' from Michelle quite some time ago. The stamp doesn't look much until you colour it up and then it comes into it's own. I've used glossy accents (a must have!) on the balloon.
Love the 'boy with the guitar' stamp, I think it's by Sugar Nellie, so cute. Hope you like them.

Mini Scrapbook

Just a quicky tonight. For a change here is another one of the 'mini scrapbooks' that I've made.

They've proved quite popular again today at Wimborne market, baby theme being the most favourable as they make the perfect keepsake or gift. Hope you like it. Jeanette
