Feel Better Soon card with Melonheadz Get Well Clip Art

Good morning all.  Happy Wednesday, I hope you are having a good one.  I have a card to share today that I made especially for my five year old niece who had a little accident last week when she fell over and broke her arm.  


I managed to find the perfect image for this card over at Melonheadz.
The image is Broken Arm Girl from the Get Well Clip Art Line Art Set which I coloured with Polychromos pencils.

My niece has an orange cast on her arm so the card started with the orange and pink chipboard frame and everything else was co-ordinated with this.

The Feel Better Soon sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn Chit Chat stamp set.

Crafty Calendar April Challenge - Buttons or Bows with A Day for Daisies

Good morning all.  Hope you are well and having good day.  I was a bit under the weather all over Easter but I'm just starting to feel a little better so hopefully all the germs are leaving me now.

It's the first Saturday in April so we have a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar.
Our theme for this month is:
BUTTONS and/or BOWS.


For my card I have used
Ducks in a Row digital stamp from A Day For Daisies.
I printed the image and sentiment using my laser printer and then added gold Decofoil by running the image and a sheet of foil through my laminator so that the gold foil adheres to the laser ink.
I coloured the image with polychromos pencils.
I mounted the image on card and added a chipboard flower and a button centre.


I was having so much trouble trying to get a photo that showed that the image was foiled but eventually this one shows that it is actually gold.

Happy Easter Card using Cottontail Cuties from Neat & Tangled

Good afternoon to all and a very happy Easter.
Have you got through all that chocolate yet?  I've resisted so far but may have to open an egg a bit later.

I have another Easter card to share today.  My first attempt of a slider card.  I did cheat a little by using an SVG file that I found on Lori Whitlock and my cricut.
I also made a little bunny gift bag with another SVG file...image and details below..


For my card I have used:
Cottontail Cuties stamp set from Neat & Tangled coloured with polychromos pencils and then cut with my Scan n Cut.
The card layout is an SVG file called Slider Card Easter Bunny from Lori Whitlock.  I just used the card layout sections & clouds from the SVG file and cut with my cricut,
I added the little girl image to the slider section  of the card and so when the tab is pulled she delivers an Easter carrot to the waiting bunny....



The Easter bunny box with goodies in for my niece was cut on my cricut using the Easter Bunny Tote SVG file from Lori Whitlock.

Good morning all.   I hope you are having a fabulous day, I now have heating because my boiler is working again,  we are waiting for a engineer to fit a replacement part for it but its working for now....

Just a quick make to share with you today.  I love flamingos so when I  saw this stamp set over at My Favorite Things I had to have it.  

When I was making this card I looked around my craft room at the flamingo lamp, pencils, ruler, clipboard, pencil pots, pens, notepads and realised maybe I have a slight flamingo obsession.....


For this card I have used:

Flamazing stamp set from My Favorite Things stamped using MFT Hybrid ink
The background is Flamingo Print Cling Background Stamp by The Ton Stamps stamped with versamark ink onto pink card.
