Wedding card...

This week at CRAFT challenge we have a inspirational photo for you all to desgin a project around (challenge 96). To me it screamed out wedding, so I used a cute wedding couple image from our sponsor this week:

Here's the inspirational photo: And here my DT card:

For this card I used Owen and Grace digi image (Sew Many Digital Stamps) which I coloured in with Promarkers. I've used some lace that my Mum gave me from her stash. The heart is made using a Matha Stewert punch (one my new goodies from the NEC show last weekend) and the heart doily is also something that I bought from the NEC show from a ribbon stall (can't remember the name). I've used some gems from Meiflower and stickles glitter and finally the patterned paper is from Anna Griffin.

Horsey card

Here's a card i made using a stamped image I got in a Trimcraft image swap. I'm not really a horsey person, but I think the image is pretty cute.

The image is a Magnolia stamp (I think) which I've coloured in with Promarkers. The papers are all from a K&Co paper pad. I've used Prima flowers with pearl brad centers. Gems from Meiflower and a sentiment from Craftwork cards.

Another Baby Card...... baby girl this time

I've made another baby card, but this time in pink.
Over at Lexis Creations the new challenge is:
So untangle your ribbons and we'd love to see what creations you can come up with.
I've used three different ribbons on my card for my DT card
The sponsor for this challenge is Whiff of Joy

I've used Georgina Giraffe digi designed by Lexi which can be found
here. Which I've coloured her in with Promarkers. I used my nesties for the scalloped shapes which sent me slightly bonkers trying to get them all lined up. Anyway after quite a few attempts the apature/inside/backing papers finally lined up. All the three types of ribbon are from Crafty ribbons. The flowers are Prima, the papers is Craftwork Cards, and the cute feet charm is from Meiflower. I've also used Stickles glitter and pink distress ink.

Liams latest card

Liam made a card before school today. We're going to add a Daddy sticker to it (once i find one) so he can give it to his Daddy for his birthday later this month. (He's more organised than me!!)

He made it using his prize from Messys Mini Missons. He was so excited to get his own crafting stash that he couldn't wait to have a play which is why he made a card before school. He just needed help with the cutting and specifically asked me cut some leaves out for him.

My little Pirate and the flowers he made

Yesterday at my Sons nursery they had to dress up as a book character for world book day. He looked so cute as a pirate I thought I'd share this picture. His older brother was off school sick so he didn't get to dress up, we're going to have a dress up day at this weekend to make up for it!!

Today his brother went back to school so Owen and I had a crafting session, he made these flowers and the little pot for them to go in. I did the cutting, but I wasn't allowed anywhere near the glue or sellotape (why is it kids loves sticky stuff!!). He's also covered the bottom part in glitter and put flower stickers on it. It's now got pride of place on our fireplace.

We also got the paints out today and he painted a couple of cards, one for his Grandmad and Grandad and the other for his Auntie. (I didn't take photos of these though). We both really enjoyed our crafty morning together.
