Let me take a selfie...


I made this card for my niece's 16th birthday... she does enjoy taking a selfie or two!
 
I used the Kraftin' Kimmie Oh, Snap! set and coloured her in with watercolour pencils.
 
Thanks for looking... have a great day!

Oh baby...

I totally LOVE the MFT baby bib dienamics die. Here are some baby cards that I made using it.
 
 Welcome Ada Maree. This card was made to welcome one of my teacher friend's new baby.
 
 This card was a request by my sister for a friend's new baby.
 
 I just love the colour combinations in these two. The gorgeous paper is from Doodlebug Designs.
 


Thanks for looking... have a great day!

MFT Sketch Challenge... missed it!

What an epic fail! I made two cards for the MFT Sketch Challenge and ended up missing the deadline... Oh well, there's always next time. I decided to post the cards anyway.
 
The first is using the Birdie Brown Sunflower Sweetheart set from My Favorite Things

I am entering this card in the January Challenge at Kit and Clowder which is ANYTHING GOES!
 

 
 
And here is the baby card I made using the MFT Dienamics Baby Bib die
 
 
 
Here is the sketch

My Final Cards of 2014 #3 Engagements, Weddings and Babies

This is the last post with 2014 cards I promise!!
 
These cards were all made within the last month. The baby cards were made on Tuesday with my BFF Sam. I started out making two for my sister to give for twin babies (the named ones) and then I just kept going. Love the MFT baby dies and stamps! So cute! Lets hope I have some more opportunities to create new baby cards in 2015!
 

 
Here come the baby cards. What do you think of my photography skills? LOL. I took these outside on my verandah table.
