baby card

Here is a slide card I made for a friend who had a little boy. I made one for a little girl that turned out quite lovely but silly me forgot to take a photo of it before I gave it to them so guess you will have to just guess what it looked like from this one. arrg hate it when I do that.

I love the way this one turned out. The saying is from SU but the little boys outfit is from our local shop here in Barlick that I just love. It is called WhichCraft? ( Go have a look at the web sight. :) They have such lovely things in it. I stamped three different outfits then colored them all in with SU markers and then layered then with gluedots to add a little height to them.

I love the way this one turned out. :)

Hope you enjoy.

Ive been tagged..

Ive been tagged by Chrissy one of my stamping sisters.

So I have to come up with seven facts about myself. hmm this will be interesting.

1. By the time I was 20 my family had moved 52 times. and No neither of my parents are in the military.

2. I get very very sick in my pregnancies to the point I have ended up in the hospital on IVS. I have to take 2 different meds for nausea and being sick. I love my four children and plan on having more someday. :)

3. I am a trained Doula. I hope to someday get my practice up and running over here in the UK again. I hope to take a lactation consultant training soon.

4. I am a parent governor at my children's school.

5. I am terrified of heights. once when I was younger my brother in law to be took my family up in a tower where he worked and when we got off the elevator I literally had wobbly knees I could not let go of the wall by the elevator for fear. Yet I don't have a problem in planes. :)

6. My oldest son had cancer when he was 2. Had surgery to remove one of his kidneys. It will be 5 years this June. yippee!

7. My family knows when I am stressed because I start baking! I love to bake and when I get stressed I will bake and bake and bake. it is my relaxing thing to do!

okay so there are seven things about me. so now I have to tag seven others. hmmmm lets see

Lets see what they have to say...

10 minute card/Challenge time

Sometime ago I was browsing around some of the blogs I love to read and when I came to Fionaƛ blog she had done this 10 minute card challenge. I thought what a neat idea to do. Thought well someday when I have a minute I will have a go to see what I can come up with. Well that day never came until my daughters birthday the beginning of March and I literally only had 10 minutes to make her card before I had to go pick her up from school. I thought hey what a great time to try this. I set the timer and wala this is what I came up with in 10 minutes! What a great challenge thanks Fiona!

Well I think I am going to set my own challenge on here. Lets see what you can come up with! Have ago at making a card in ten minutes leave me a comment with a link to your blog then I can have a look and see what you came up with. I will give it till next tues then have a judging of the cards. There will be a prize in the end. :)

Have fun ladies.

Birthday Card

Okay this card is one I made for a dear friend up north in Scotland a couple of months ago. Well the post never delivered it to her. :( So somewhere between here and there lies this card. I was waiting to post it till I new she had gotten it but after her not getting it I thought at least I would post the pictures and then she could see what I had sent her. Sorry Rach it did not get to you.

I got this inspiration off of Jennys wonderful blog. I just love the creations she comes up with. I love flowers but had never really tried cutting them and layering them as I have done lately. Then to make a card that has two ways of opening I thought was really neat idea so I had a go.

It is all SU products. I just love the way it turned out. Thanks Jen for your inspirations. :)

Simpathy card..

Here is a sympathy card I made for my DHs great aunt who passed away this past autumn we sent it to my MIL cousin.

I used the stampin pastels again. Can you tell I just love using them. :) Again I used SU products. I dont have a special sympathy stamp so I used a generic thinking of you stamp.

I versa marked the flowers on the side of the card.
