Tilda Christmas

I coloured this image forever ago and thought it needed to go on a card.  I found these left overs from one of the very first classes I did with the amazing Tania Ridgwell and made up this card for my sons after school care ladies. 

Tilda is coloured with Copics with some little Simple Stories enamel dots for her buttons.  Yes that is good old puff paint on the white bits.  Not sure what the paper is as I have had it forever but the flowers are Prima with some Kaisercraft Sparklets in the centres.

Thanks for stopping by - twice in two days its a Christmas miracle!

Welcome Baby Hayley

As promised I'm back again.  I know right don't fall over!  Our daughter welcomed a little girl into the family in November - little Hayley Lee.  This was the card I made for her. 

Now I didn't name where I got this image from but think it was a freebie somewhere.  If you know please let me know!  I used a whole bunch of left overs on my desk to make this one.  Added in some flowers and few punched out butterflies.  This sweet little girl is coloured in Copics.  I'm madly practicing my hair but still need to work on those fine strokes. 

Thanks for popping by.

Running Man

Well did you think I was lost in the never, never?  Big things have been happening and seriously not much crafting going on but I am determined to get back into the swing of things!  Here is a card that I made for a friend who does lots of marathons and triathlons. 

The stamp is a digi that I purchased from Doctor Digi House of Stamps.  The paper was Class Act from Kaisercraft.  I coloured him with Copics (which I really need to get back to practicing with!).  It is a quick and simple layout but just what I need at the moment and great for a male card. 
We have relocated to Melbourne in June so hopefully now we are starting to settle in I can be a bit more regular with the posting!  Although with 3/4 of my craft supplies still in storage my options are a bit limited but I am enjoying discovering everything again. 
Take Care
