Baby Tees Card

A quick 'hello' to you all. I hope you're all well.

Just taking a minute or two to show you this card I just finished for one of the mums at school who gave birth to a little baby boy on the weekend. I can't wait to meet him. Here is the card...

Colours used were Crumb Cake (love Crumb Cake!), Bashful Blue and So Saffron. I used the cute little Baby Tees jumbo wheel for the images. The sentiment is from the Silhouette Sentiments hostess set. It was punched with the Jewellery Tag Punch. The button, coloured twine and coat hanger are all from my stash.

See? Told you it was quick!

Take care.

Sew Suite

I have a Sew Suite feature for you today. Three cards made using the gorgeous Sew Suite stamp set from the current mini catalogue. It's such a great set. I have used it before on some of my scrapbooking pages but this is the firs time I have actually used it to make some cards. Here are the cards, starting with my favourite...

Which one is your favourite?

Feel free to leave a comment & let me know.

Catch you soon.

Playing Catch Up

Scrapbooking is just one of those things that is never quite up to date, isn't it? I'm always trying to catch up with all the photos that I take. I guess I'm not doing too bad, though as at least I'm up to 2011.

Here are some layouts that I completed this week...

You'll have to excuse the poor photos. I just wanted to get them posted in a hurry. You can see the detail clearer if you actually click on the photos.

I should have some cards to show you later this weekend so be sure to stop by again really soon.

See you then!

Two cards for two parties

Welcome to the long weekend!

We have two parties this weekend starting tonight with a party for a little friend of ours. This is the card I made for him, using a card from Teneale Williams as inspiration...

Cute little fella, ain't he? He's from the adorable Make a Monster set that I bought for one of my daughters. Doesn't hurt that I get to use it too! Not sure if you can see it but I've used some Crystal Effects on his eyes to give them a glossy look and on the balloon accents. Colour used are Old Olive, Marina Mist, Whisper White. The sentiment is from the hostess set, Afterthoughts.

Now for the next card. This one is for a male friend of ours...

I love this image, poor guy! I also used Crystal Effects on the balloons. Can you see it? It gives them a great finish. The background present image and the balloons are from one of the All in the Family add-on sets which of course, I can't remember the name of and am too lazy to go upstairs and check - ha ha! The sentiment on the front is from the retired Vintage Labels set. Colours are Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, More Mustard, Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery.

Well, off to get ready for one of those parties. Catch you soon. Enjoy your weekend and drive safely.
