In case you missed my post last week....did I tell you that I am going to be a Nanna ;0) Yes it's true, my darling daughter is expecting our first grandchild on 8 Nov. These baby cards have been such relevant practice for me to get my baby card making skills honed up.Thank you for all the emails, comments, good wishes and even cards you have sent me, what a great bunch you all are.
So here is my final card and this time it is a male version of Billie with rattle which I made for little Coen. This release is so sweet and there are 11 others in the set. I made another easel card and went for really bright colours.
The light has been awful this week and I really struggled to get the vibrancy of these colours with my camera, it is a really sunny yellow in real life.
Below is a close up of my stamp; cute isn't here and you can buy him here for the bargain price of £1.75
Before I forget my 2 winning commentators from my post last week are
Jane of The craft bucket
Lisa of Ella's Designs (yes 2 weeks in a row, you must be on a lucky streak!)
Well done ladies, you each win Billie with rattle, please email me and I will send him right over.
I would like to thank Kerry and the Ladybug girls again for having me as a GD for a whole month. It's been great fun but quite a juggle for me to get a new card made every week. My dear Hb has been very patient...thank you Mx.
Amazingly I have received some Design Team offers but I am really sorry to say that at this point in time I would struggle to commit to being a regular part of a DT. I am truly delighted and thrilled to think that there are people out there who think my cards are worthy of such things! Thank you. However, as with Kerry, I am interested in occasional Guest Design opportunities. I find these really great fun and fit in with my "other" job working as a musculoskeletal specialist Physiotherapist for the NHS. My crafting time is limited but please do email me if you feel I could be a worthy guest designer for your team.
