Oh Baby

Been a long long time getting this cutie into my collection. Seen a card made with it on the web and no mention of the designer. Had to message and ask but they said they couldn't remember so I searched and searched everywhere and came upon it by accident looking in dis shop  more than a year on. . So frustrating when you want something and can't find it anywhere lol! Coloured her up with Copics and used Scrapeberry Papers and a random baby paper from another collection. Finished off with buttons (love buttons for baby cards) stitched with cream linen thread coloured with a Copic to match.  

Dis digital stamps - baby cuddles
baby - Skin - R0000,R000,Roo,R11,R12
baby romper - R83,R81RV34,RV00

Say it with flowers

Hello, first of my simple flower cards, must say got a bit addicted to making these kinda cards, great way to play with dies you haven't used for ages or maybe in my case never seen the die cutting machine! Loving the bright colours and not a patterned paper in sight. Cant tell you the flower dies used, sorry, have to admit just have too many and not bought yesterday but any flowers would look just as effective. Finished off with wee buttons, stitched through with linen thread coloured with copic green.

Been awhile as usual since I posted anything on here. My track pad on my mac decided to go awol and eventually had to put it into Apple. Ouch, that was a sore one I can tell you but gritted my teeth and have moved on from the shock price tag getting it sorted. Its back and have loads of cards to upload as been ignoring the housework and having fun in my craft room.
 Had a play with the Tonic Studio shadow box dies, had them for ages and only made two items with them Like a lot of other craft die in my storage space. Used cuties from MFT coloured with Copics.

A simple Birthday card

A simple card, it explains itself really. Just some die cuts and scattered sparkles. I'm hopeless nowadays remembering which company's dies are from ( there are so many or is it I have too many lol) but think they are Memorybox. In a hurry, mojo flat so simple is the way to go in my book. It always does the trick.
