Bip Bip Birthday

Morning everyone, ten years ago today I gave birth to my son, my first born and fell completely and utterly in love. This is the card that he has received of his dad and me today.

I have coloured Bip Bip Birthday with distress reinkers. The hessian strip behind the image was actually cream, I have used shabby silver frantage to make it look more like metal. I have had the cogs and bulbs for ages, and they are perfect for this card.
 This image is totally different to anything I have coloured recently, and I really enjoyed colouring him in, sometimes a change is as good as a rest.
We are going to be spending the day at Alnwick Castle today, and weather permitting we are also going to pop to The Angel Of The North on our way home. I have driven past this since it was first put there (and before) and have never actually been to it.

Thanks for popping by,

Glistening Season

Hello everyone, I'm here with you today with my card using papers from Pion Designs Glistening Season.

I love blue and browns together, the bauble is a Magnolia die, I bought it earlt this year and I knew one of my first Christmas cards this year would have it on, I think it works really well as the main focus of the card. I've used pearls in a Karen inspired way again.

Snow tex is amazing, if you've not tried it yet you really must, it gives a really nice effect, especially on cones.

Thanks for popping by,

My First Pocket Letter

Good evening, I'm so very, vey late today, I'm sorry. I have been to Bristol on a course this week, and had the chance to meet up with the lovely Jenny Hodges from Designs By Jen. It was so nice to eventually meet up with another of my crafty friends. But, I didn't get home until around midnight last night. There has been a bit of a tragedy in Hartlepool this week, a little 2 year old sadly passed away after choking on a grape, and I have needed to spend today with my babies, I think by the end of it they were getting sick of the cuddles, lol.

Our theme to follow for this week at Live and Love Crafts is to surprise Sandy, and I have even surprised myself with this one, lol. I have made a pocket letter, only with pretties not with bits to be given as gifts, if you get me.

I have used papers from the new Maja release, I do love my purples and it'll be no surprise to hear that I love this collection.

July Fairy has been coloured with distress reinkers with the obligatory glamour dust on her wings.

This is a sentiment from Stempelglede, as are the swirls, with frantage sprinkled on too.

Thank you for stopping by,
