A Baby Boy!

A colleague has just become the proud father of a little boy - who arrived 5 weeks early! As I always make a card for births (its become a bit of a tradition) I decided to use this gorgeous baby from Sugar Nellie, I do think it is the most delicious little baby ever!
I coloured the image with Copics and used some pretty die cuts to frame it along with the diecut letters and numbers.

I thought it would be nice to enter this into the Sugar Bowl challenge!

More Miss Daisy!

I have used some more of Miss Daisy's digis for some projects so I thought I would share them with you!

Aren't they adorable!
Pop over to Miss Daisy's Store and check out the fabulous images also why not join the Facebook group and get some inspiration from the beautiful projects that are posted there - you can enter the challenge too!
Hope to see you there!

Miss Daisy Guest Designer!

This month I have the honour of being guest designer for Miss Daisy Stamps on their Facebook Group! As GD I got to choose this month's challenge and my choice was shaped cards - I thought this could be fun for everyone to have a play with all the different types of cards that can be made. I have used the digi "Sweet Blossom" for my card and I used a die cut for my shape.
As its August and supposed to be high summer I went with some lovely summery colours for my project

I coloured the image with copics and used some sweet background paper from Craft Asylum. The die cuts are from Joanna Sheen, Heartfelt Creations, Tattered Lace and Spellbinders.

I hope you will come over and play with us this month we'd love to see your projects!

Something a Little Different!

For my DT piece for Eclectic Ellapu this month I decided to make a mixed media frame. This is something I have been dabbling in for a few months and I have made a couple of larger frames for mirrors - this is my first small scale project on a frame for a 6" square picture

It is made using 3cm jig saw puzzle pieces that I have decorated with lots of different media, some are done with Pebeo effects paints, I used three different ranges - I so love these paints!, I have used some Color Art paint that is gorgeous and gives a different look from every direction and I have used some Mica powders that I directly mixed on an acrylic base. All the little elements I have used are from Craft Box and they send me the most luscious bits in a box each month, a very exciting company that if you haven't found them yet go have  a look at what they do!

So that's my project this month for the Pink team - the theme is anything goes so what are you waiting for come on over and PLAY!
