Hello Everyone...

Brr..Winter showed it's ugly head today..Autumn nearly gone and the first day of Winter coming the calendar least I have my flushes to keep me

I have a baby card to share today, a rather special one for my Grandaughter and her partner...

I used dies and lots of circles die cut out with scrap papers that I had saved and just could not throw glad I didn't..

I had loads of fun making this card, just glueing circles down and colouring the die train, giraffe and the stork bringing the baby..

I even had circles, along with the safety pins inside the card..

There's the side view...and down below, my precious boy.

2 weeks old here, and my Daughter took the photograph..
 My Great Grandson " Hadley "..

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I will see you Tomorrow..

Hello Everyone..

I have an oldie to share with you today from SASAYAKI GLITTER  but oh, so very cute..

There you go..what could be cuter than a graduating piggy sitting on a stack of books...

This piggy is called GRADUATION DAY  ..

He does not come sitting on the books I put him there after colouring him and fussy cutting him..

I made the apple with a circle punch, cut away the middle and added some die cut leaves..and die cut the letters and numbers..
The desk part was just kraft card..and his glasses all glossies up..

So pop on over to the SASAYAKI GLITTER STORE..HERE  check out the oldies and the new releases while you are there..and if you are passing the challenge blog HERE  you could check out my teamies projects..

Hello Everyone..

Sharing my inspiration project using one of SASAYAKI GLITTERS  fabulous images, this one is called Mona ..

She was perfect for paper piecing...

I coloured with my markers and flicked that grass for a very long time but really enjoy doing that..I then added the flower dots with a white Gel pen..that little mouse looks so cute standing in the grass.

The trees were die cut coloured and then the stripes of brown and white added for shading and texture..

The clouds I put across the top as it looked so plain...I don't like it much but they are stuck there.

So there we go..thanks so much for stopping by..I'll see you tomorrow..
