Its a Birthday

I managed to get 2 out in one day which is very rare.
Not much crafting has been happening since getting pregnant.
Not only that moving my craft room back into 1 cupboard and back to the dining table has not been much fun. Not enough room in the old farm house for a craft room and a nursery.
Anyway enough about that and onto the card I have made
For this card I have used my Forever Friends For you paper pad.
Inside there is a cute bear that I have cut out and then cut out his head and belly to add some dimension.
I have used my lily of the valley sentiments and flowers from my stash with button centres.
I have tried to use Bizzy becs March colour challenge, chocolate, raspberry, mint and vanilla.
The layout is from Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #95

Diamonds are a girls best friend

Well I have struggled with finding my mojo of late but I have found enough just to get some necessary cards made.

This one is quite simple but effective.

I have used Five kids and a dog laser cut heart and embossed it with silver.
The card is from Kaisercrafts After Five Collection

Added some bling, and I found the metal lettering in my stash (its amazing what you find when you have to move your whole craft room)

I'm entering this one in One Stop Craft Challenge
Thanks for stopping by.

The First Card for 2011

Can you believe it has taken me this long to get started for 2011.
Well I have been a little pre-occupied of late.
And this is why.....
This is me at 18.5weeks.

Anyway enough excuses as to why my mojo went missing, I have finally made my first card for the year.
I had to wait to upload this one as it was a surprise for some wonderful friends.
I can't take all the credit for the card either I used components of a design I saw in the Kaszazz project book which was created by Kathleen Rothery.
I have made this a tri fold card (we needed the extra space for writing)
I have added some jute around the edge of the white for that rustic look
I have finally used my Twiddleybitz gum leaves and coloured them up with Olive chalk ink.
The flowers are punched out flowers and then you fringe the petals and crush them to get the desired look.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my post
