Baby Boy Card

This card started out as my entry for a challenge on the Trimcraft website to create your own stamp.

The background paper is stamped using a die cut baby bottle shape (cut from my Slice machine). The hearts around the image has been stamped using a metal heart embellishment that I put a foam pad on the back off so had something to hold when stamping.

Although the stamping wasn't as successful as I hoped the card turned out better than I expected in the end.

Image - Sugar Nellie stamp coloured in with Promarkers

Ribbon - local craft shop, thread - DMC blue thread

Cream paper - Basic Grey

Blue check paper - Craft Creations

Dummy Charm - Stash

I'd like to enter this into Challenge 29 at I love Promarkers - Charming

I'm back!!

It's been a while since I've updated my blog, but I've still been busy crafting though. I've been busy making cards for the challenges on the Trimcraft website. I also started on my Christmas cards this weekend, well I've make 7 now!! But it's a start.
In our house we're also busy preparing for our oldest boy starting school in a week's time. He's had a month off nursery, so he had a break before school. It's meant for the last month we've had a 4 year old to entertain. We've done lots of things and I really enjoyed have some time off with him. Still can't believe he starts school in a week, he's so excited though!!
