Hello lovely visitors, I hope you are all keeping well!
A super quick post from me today, just to share a birthday card I did for one of my grand daughters who will turn two soon.
Just a quick word of explanation: little Arielle loves her food, she also loves chickens, so with that in mind I put this card together. Also in Australia where she lives it is now Autumn, so that's the reason for the rather Autumnal colours.
Here is the inside:
The stamps I used are by Sheena Douglas, the papers and dies are mostly Heartfelt Creations.
I coloured the stamp with Derwent Inktense pencils and blended with a Dove Blender pen, which worked brilliantly, so I was very pleased with that discovery. Arielle has a little red rain suit just like the child in the foreground is wearing, and her sister Lucia has a coat not unlike the blue one the other child has on.
The birthday greeting is on the other side of the tag which is only adhered up to the fold line.
The card closes with a little flap and a little round velcro fastener. And for once, though I don't usually share family photos, here is a photo of her taken a few weeks ago.
Well that's it for now, thanks for your visit like usual and I hope you are having a good week.
Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
