Pretty in Pink

Hello there

I thought I would enter my card into the Pretty in Pink challenge over on the Make my Monday challenge blog.

As usual for me I had to add some pearls and this time I used green ones around the image to match the lovely satin ribbon. The image was from a Pion Design sheet from Live and Love Crafts, I love using these images on my cards. Oh and the little butterfly got a few tiny pink pearls.

 I made the tag pocket out of a lunch money envelope, covered in co-ordinating papers and a few shabby flowers painted with gesso. Oh and the metal bird cage charm got the same treatment.

I inked the edges of the tag with Victorian Velvet distress ink and then gave it a light coating of gesso to knock back the colour slightly. Very Pretty in Pink don't you think?

Thanks for taking a peep.

Baby Shower Card

Hello there

Yes I am still here, although crafting times are getting less and less for me.

I was invited to my first ever baby shower today, so wanted to make a card to take along with a few little gifts. The new mum to be knows she is having a girl so I went down the traditional pink route. Lots of pearls, flowers, shabby ribbon and butterfly's. . . not at all my usual style lol.


Isn't it great when your background papers really make life just a little bit easier. It was a lovely afternoon and the new mum to be loved it. I saw this pram on the net (Cut out twice and made freestanding) and knew I wanted to give it a go and shabby it up a bit. Thanks again for the inspiration.

Thanks for taking a peep
