Anything goes

This is the card challenge on Scrapbook Sisters Blog this week. I decided to include a card /come door hanger I made for a work colleagues new baby. I made one for her 1st baby Holly a couple of years ago so I didn't want baby George to feel left out.

cards2 026I covered the letters with patterned paper.  Stamped various animal images, coloured them with Copics and cut them out  arranging them within the letters.

cards are not easy as you would probably all agree. This is the subject of this weeks card challenge at Scrapbook Sisters blog. So for this I decided to keep it quite simple.

cards2 101The stamp is from Indigo Blu. I stamped the main image on the base card and coloured it using Distress pad ‘Iced Spruce’ then stamped a few more flowers and 3D some of the petals.

cards2 103  The wording stamp is one of my favourites.

I think the words are very apt for this type of card. Make sure you post your entries as they will give others some inspiration when you want to let someone know that you are thinking about them at a difficult time.

Gone but never forgotten ……………

Mothers Day can be hard for those of us that no longer have our Mums with us so I made this card for my Mum for Scrapbook Sisters card challenge.

I had a rummage in my sentiment stamps and used a combination of two stamps and the words say it all.cards2 096   

A combination of stamps – flowers, butterflies, dress form, ornate corners  and a hinge stamp to make up the card.
