I Believe I Can Fly

Hope he lands safely ;-)

Marching On Together

Can I please order a couple of extra hours in the day.

I am struggling to find time to craft at the moment,
but I did get chance to put together this simple card,
following the sketch over at MFT.
(I do love a good sketch when I'm short on time)

You made a mini person

If there's a season for new babies, 
I think we're in it :-)

Here's a simple card for a new, baby boy.

Not a great photo today folks,
its suddenly gone very dark here and it looks like
thunder is on the way.
I do love a good storm ;-)

I've just got time to enter this over at the

Budget restrictions are in force  ;-)
(Not sure how long I can hold out though !!)

If in doubt, add more glitter

  Marching bunnies, in little red blazers
with a glitter background and scattered stars.
What's not to love?

I started by stamping my sentiment onto a die-cut panel,
and then die-cutting the 'YOU'.
Bunnies were die-cut and coloured with Copics
(red is not my strong suit) before being attached with foam pads.

Then I fixed the panel to some glitter card and added some tiny stars.

If you want to see how beautifully sparkly this glitter card
really is, pop over to my Instagram (link in side bar)

Off Grid

My dh's dreams of being a full time, off grid
spoon whittler, have had to be put on hold.
He's started a new job today!

Here's the card I made to wish him luck.

I've used my new MFT diagonal sentiment die,
and filled in the cut outs with copper effect paper.

Then I've added my bunnies with foam pads, for some dimension.

Here's a little video,  just to show you how glossy that paper is..
