Baby Shower

I hope everybody reading this has had a lovely break over the festive season.

I was lucky to receive lots of crafty goodies from Santa! Amongst my favourite pressies were some pastel Spectrum Noir pens and some Clearly Besotted stamps and dies - I can't wait to start playing.

However, today's card is for an imminent Baby Shower - we have no idea whether the baby is a boy or a girl so I have used the baby neutral colours of yellow and mint green...

The polka dot patterned paper and yellow matting papers are from my scraps stash  - the light has interfered with the colour of the yellow paper - it is a lot paler in real life. The epoxy stickers are seriously old - maybe either Memory Makers or K & Co. 

I'm playing along with the current challenges at:

Just Us Girls - wild card
Southern Girls Challenge - anything goes
Cute Card Thursday - anything goes
Allsorts Challenge #551 - anything goes
Pixie's Snippets Playground #368 - use snippets

Many thanks for visiting
Best wishes for a happy and prosperous 2020

Dear Grandma

Today I'm sharing a card I made for a colleague to give to her Gran...

I've used some lovely glittery Nordic patterned paper for the background - it's so pretty in real life! The deer die came free with a magazine some time ago and I've added an embellishment snowflake with a glittery heart. Finally, I've added a tiny red pearl to the deer's nose - every deer needs a Rudolph nose!

I'm playing along with the challenges at:

Cuttlebug Mania - Christmas Time
Paper Funday Challenge #12 - Christmas Holiday 
Sisterhood of Crafters - anything Christmas
Aud Sentiments #242 - Christmas + sentiment

My Favourite Snowman

Almost finished the Christmas cards now!

Today's card features one of my favourite Christmas images - this gorgeous snowman digi from Pink Cat Studio (I think) - I've had it for years!

It's for a child to give to grandparents so I've kept things cute and simple...

The blue and white spotty background paper makes perfect 'snow' and I've used a striped red and green paper to coordinate with his scarf. Finally, I've added a tiny holly sprig with some sparkly red gem 'berries'.

I'm playing along with the challenges at:

Sweet Stampin' - Christmas
Allsorts Challenge #549 - snowmen
Creative Knockouts #327 - Christmas delight
Winter Wonderland Challenge - anything goes
Always Fun Challenge #139 - snowmen
