Now if I can work out how to do all of those things I will have fulfilled the rules - don't hold your breath though, this might take me some time.

More with Papertrey

It was another rainy day so I made a couple more cards.
This one is for Louise to give to her sister - she liked the 'berry happy' idea.

The new baby card is for a colleague whose baby is due in August but they already know that it is a boy so got the card ready. I'm not sure about knowing the flavour in advance, kind of takes the surprise away - perhaps I'm just a bit old fashioned.

Lovely Day

Well actually, it's not. Rain and wind so a good excuse to take a day for myself and make some cards. Not before time I might add.
First is for a colleague, our super ICT technician, who has been studying part time while working full time, has just got a 1st class honours degree in Computer Science......so just had to do a card for him. Stamp is decoupaged in three layers then added the mortar board. Number is chipboard coloured with two blues and then highlighted with gold - as are the letters on the inside and the layering card.

The next is for another colleague who is adopting a baby girl. They are going to see her for the first time in a few days, then five days 'getting to know her' and they will be bringing her home. As I have just bought the Papertrey 'Bitty Baby Blessings' I was delighted to be able to make her an appropriate card.

.....and finally, one for my elder daughter's birthday next week. Decided to use the Maya Road paper that has been in my ' look and stroke' drawer for a few months. Had difficulty in deciding how much bling to use as I bought a kit which has lots of that in. Kept it pretty toned down though - I think!!
