Happy Birthday with Decoupage

Here are a couple of cards I made for my mother in law's birthday, the first one I used a La Pashe Nice & Easel Decoupage, something floral.

My second card is for nanny from my two girls.

I used the new Happy Birhtday stamp from Docrafts, small butterflies are Martha Stewart Punch & Stamp and the large butterfly is a die from Little Claire's.

Molly Bloom

Sorry I haven't been round much but been busy working and trying to get ready for my holiday.

The cards today were for a class I done at In2Crafting a week or so ago, first ever class so a bit nerve racking but I had lovely people on it so it was fun.

My first card was using Bathing Molly

I used promarkers to colour her with and my water paper is a craft creations 12x12, shell stamps are from Kars and Martha Stewart edge punch Deco Fan. Also I used Grand Labels Eleven.

My second card is George with Kite

I also coloured him with promarkers, Labels Thirteen, paper is a Fancy Pants called Explorer and I made my own card candy.

My third project was a Plaque for the kitchen with Maid Molly. I got the idea from door hangers

I took this picture before I added the ribbon so it could hang, but I used Promarkers to colour as usual, Grand Labels Eleven and my cupcake stamp which was a freebie from Docrafts.

Hope to be back soon

Bathing Tilda

Sorry haven't been around lately, been busy working and the girls have been on holiday and Katie has had Chicken Pox or as she called it pop chick. So haven't had time for much.

Here is a card I made for a friend to say have fun, as she has gone to Cyprus for 6 months to work out there. Hope she is having fun.

I used Bathing Tilda and Bathing Ring and coloured them with promarkers. My sentiment is a Digi from SENTIMENTS 4 YOU which I just coloured around the edge.

Also I made a matching plaque so my friend could take it with her to make her apartment a bit homely.

I used the same Tilda with a different sentiment from SENTIMENTS 4 YOU and I added some shells for a beach look.

Hope you like them, be back soon hopefully.
