Hey Baby...

Hi Bestest Blogging Buddies

Well... it looks like we're in for a gorgeous weekend, doesn't it?  Hope so!!  We have a barbeque planned for tonight..  so keep your fingers crossed!

Today's card is another baby girl card... this time it's my DT card for the Hey Baby challenge at Totally Gorjuss.

I've had this digi for a while...  she's called 'Blessing of Heaven 10' by Digi Darla.. and she was crying out to be decoupaged, so I had a go.. and was quite pleased with the result.  She's coloured with a mix of Copics and Promarkers... a little glamour dust on her cloud... an oval nestie, then a star embossing folder.  I used a Beaded Oval Nestie to sit her on... some pink stripey baby paper that's been in my stash since I last went to the states...  and finally the Wobbly Scallop border from Die-Namics with a tiny ribbon and bow.

I've tried to show her a bit sideways here, to give you an idea of the depth.  There wasn't too much fiddly cutting.. thank goodness..  Anyway... why don't you pop over to Totally Gorjuss to see what other inspiration my teamies have come up with..  you won't be disappointed!  And the sponsor this time is the very generous Crafters' Companion.

Now... just a couple of photos as promised of the card-making workshop I held at the WI that I belong to...  there were over 40 women attending that night...  and as it was a craft night and there was candle-making and mug-painting too, we set up three tables.. and the women could have 30 mins at each table.   I showed them a sample of what they could do, then let their imaginations loose!!  Each lady came up with something different.... and all I'd done was provide a pre cut card, some paper, some embossed squares, some punched flowers and some pearls.... ohh and some glue!

Seems they all enjoyed it!!

Big hugs to all and have a good weekend..

  7. Gorgeous card Christine. That baby is beautifully coloured

    Can I ask what paper/card you use for copics/pro markers etc and what printer? I love digis but the ink always seems to bleed and the paper I use always seems to wick away the ink.

    Thanks in advance
