One year olds....

Hi Girls

Just a couple of real quick commissioned cards.... I used the images from the ClipArt Fairy which are ready coloured.... can you believe it?  But I did have to add my own colouring on the face, I think my printer was making these little babes look jaundiced!

I did love putting them together though, so simple to make and the lady who asked me for them was delighted as I personalised the inserts for the little ones.

Of course, I had to add glitter too didn't I????  well DIDN'T I????  I just cut out the images and 3D'd them onto linen card that I'd embossed with swiss dots.  And they were done! 

Now...... onto the next subject....  My name is Christine and I am an.......  an......  an.......  (can't put the word as last time I mentioned the word add**tion, I got odd comments suggesting that I needed help from p**n add**tion..... EEEEK!!)  But if you're still following my train of thought here.....  the proof is above!   This is what I bought from the Harrogate show......  (well plus a couple of My Favourite Things Dienamics which are already upstairs).  So there ya go..... I admit it.  I need H**P!!!  hehe (well don't all rush at once......think I'm sounding a tad Les Dawson-ish)    One of the dies that's not showing btw, is a curly tree die from MFT - looked absolutely fab at the show, but when I've cut it, and spent ages poking it out of the die, actually looks like a peel off!!!  Ooooohhhh!  Not sure what to do about that!

Enough rambling, I'm keeping you away from far more important things like card-making!

Bye for now and Big Hugs to all...... especially my new followers...  thanks for choosing me!

  12. Hi Christine, those are such sweet cards! I love the little babies peeking out from behind the numbers. Looks like you had a few good buys from Harrogate - though I don't think you are anywhere near as addicted as I am, the first time I came back from Harrogate I covered the living floor in my buys! Sarah

  13. How cute are those baby images i love them might have to pop on over and purchase them there too cute.
    Loving all that lovely stash and as for the addiction problem I think it comes with being a crafter lol my addiction is paper i have to buy two of everything i need one to look at and one to use lol

  14. Ooh what cute baby cards Christine!! & that stash looks like you will be busy in your craft room for a long time lol....I am as bad for buying stuff!!.....about the scarves, well I used some 'Flamenco uni' wool. The shop said it was discontinued now though, I didn't use a pattern. I just pull the wool apart ( it looks like lace) and make 10 stitches along the top then just knit each row until the wool is all used up. Hard to explain but you just catch a stitch from the top of the wool as you pull it apart. I think there is link on you tube 'ruffle scarves' ?? HTH :O) Viv xx

  15. If you really need help Christine I could always take some of them goodies off your hands lol :)

    Super cute cards , ou gotta love the CAF's fab!
