Knitters birthday

Today is my Mother in Law's birthday, and she loves to knit, so this image seemed perfect for her card.

The house mouse images were very kindly given to me by a friend, Kim. I've added a backing layer cut from a leftover piece of lilac card using a spellbinders die - regal rectangles?

The ribbon was a couple of scraps from my ribbon box. I didn't have a big enough piece to go all the way across the card so had to use 2 pieces & cover the join with a Lili of The valley birthday greeting!

Then i used lots of snippets to cut flowers with Tim Holtz tattered florals die ( definitely a desert island must have!) and flower punches. Finished with lots of lilac gems. 

Linking this to pixies snippets playground cos I used lots of snippets :-)

Spring is in the air!

Gosh, it's been ages since my last post! Been very busy with work, classes & making lots of new baby cards! Spring is in the air & all the babies are arriving at once!

This card was made for a work colleague - love the colours in this. 

The image is Penny Black, from a wooden stamp belonging to a friend. It
was stamped on a scrap of card when round her house for a crafty evening & sat in a box for ages, and now I love it and will have to buy my own! Linking this to Penny Black Saturday Challenge

The papers are First Edition & I managed to use up lots of snippets for flowers, flourishes & mini die cuts. That's why I'm linking this to Pixies Snippets Playground. 

Off to make Mother in Laws birthday card :-)
