A Fairy in my Tea!


This super-cute fairy image is by The Paper Shelter who are sponsoring Sketch Saturday this week. I totally fell in love with it when I saw it but wasn't sure who I'd send a card to with her on it - I decided on a little girl's 4th birthday card - all little girls love fairies right?! This little girl is also very pink and girly so it worked out perfectly for her. I totally cheated this week though and used the image pre-coloured, which I hardly ever do! Sometimes it's nice to cheat though! On some pre-coloured digi images the colours can look unnatural but the Paper Shelter images are such high quality that I knew I couldn't do a better job! I love the result and I'd never ever think to colour hair pink - but may give it a go in future!

Another new Baby Girl!

Another new baby girl - this time baby Izzy short for Isabella - or will she be a 'Bella' I think this is still up for debate! This card was made with some Heidi Swapp scrapbooking paper and a Bugaboo image. I used up some old SU trim and a few pretty buttons. I'm loving all the pink!

A New Baby Girl


New babies are so lovely, all shiny and new and our little friendship group ended up with two in one week!  This card is for baby Lizzy who turned up a few weeks earlier than planned. I met and held her today - very cute but it didn't make me want another one of my own, just yet!

I rotated the sketch so it was around the other way, and layered up some pre-made tags - I feel like I cheated as I didn't colour anything in! The papers are old papertrey ink ones and I finished off with a LOTV sentiment stamp, some mini roses and pink gem swirls.

Eat Me!


I've had a few weeks off of the Sketch Saturday design team because I've been moving house!  Now normally I make my cards in advance and do all my posts too, but in January I was hit with flu - real flu and OMG it was awful! So I ended up behind and then I was seperated from my Copics for two weeks while we stayed temporarily with my parents, and then I had no internet at the new house for the first two weeks, so a catalogue of little things really. But I'm back now, getting settled into my lovely new house (and craft room!).

This week's card is for a girly friend and I've used some older My Minds Eye papers and a Meljens image called Eat Me. They have a massive sale on right now becuase they are closing their shop :( so head on over there and grab a bargain.
