Here is a card I made for a friend who is like a second mum to me although the backing papers look purple they are actually blue,I used nesties and a tilda image which was given to me by my buddy Hazel,Snowy Owl from the Docrafts site.I coloured the image using crayola pencils and baby oil to blend and promarkers.My friend loved the card btw,thanks for looking hugs Andrea xxx

Argh finally managed to get back online now Hope is sleeping peacefully,this is only the 2nd night in her cot,bless her...she looks so tiny :o)anyways here is the first card I made today it is for a friend who has just moved house got the download from got some fab stuff on that site,so please pop along and have a look!!!

I wanted to make a card using a new stamp I got today from,think he looks so cute and just had to have a play,I used watercolours to colour him in and a "birthday wishes" stamp from stampin up,bow,gems and flowers were from my own stash.This is something totally different for me...and I am liking it!!!

Next is a scrapbook page I made a few days ago,Hope is wearing a really pretty dress from M&S which my friend bought her when she was born,had just bought a flower punch from stampin up so thought I'd use that and add little gems to the centre of the patterned paper flowers,the butterfly I bought from ebay and the rest of the bits are from a QVC kit I got several months ago.Also used my bigshot to cut the corner shapes on the photo.

And finally I wanted to show you the card my 13 year old daughter,Jamie made today to say "Thank you" to her friends Grandma who took them out for the day yesterday,J used my "Flowers" stamp from Funky Kits and stamped it onto a nestie,she then coloured it with watercolour pencils,she then added 2 bows and a "Thank you" sticker.I thought she done a pretty good job?
Thanks for looking
