Two Cards Today - One for Ribbon Reel Challenge #4 - Colour Challenge

Hi lovely bloggers!  I'm showing two cards today.  I've been working on these on and off over a week.
My first card is for a friend, and I'm entering this into the Ribbon Reel challenge. I don't know if it will be acceptable as it only uses two of the colours, but these are my friends favourites...pale blue and white, and I didn't want to add a third colour. The lace and pearls are from my stash, label is from Whimsy stamps and I crocheted the little flower.

The second one is stamped using the gorgeous 'Vintage Garden' set of stamps by Stempelglede, and coloured with pro markers and distress inks. The little flower is one that I crocheted, and the frame is from the spellbinders fleur de lis pendants set.

Thank you! for stopping by and have a great day! xx

Cat for Grandma

Happy Monday lovely bloggers!

After seeing my previous anniversary card, I had a request to make one almost identical, but this time for a grandma, with a cat on the front.  It was a bit tricky getting the image to fit perfectly inside the frame, and I had to use the largest of the labels twenty nesties, and then cut a larger matt in gold mirri, freehand.

The card base is cream and 8" square, (205mm square).  The sentiment is computer generated and I used a Martha Stewart border punch. Flower was made from basil card stock and the ribbon was tripple tied and came from my stash.
Thank you for stopping by and have a great day! xx

Baby Ballet Slippers, Butterfly & Gift Box

Hi everyone.  I spent most of yesterday and today crocheting this little set for sweet baby girl.  They both fit nicely into the gift box, which is a milk carton template.  The butterfly is going to be sewn onto a headband.  But I need to get another little rosebud to match the ones on the ballet slippers, as I could only find two :(

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely weekend

Birthday Wishes

I've been a bit busy lately, so not had much time to blog.  But today I managed to spend a few hours card making, and I then lost my Mojo.  Anyhow, I got out a few bits and pieces and came up with this.  Not for anyone imparticular, so it will go into charity box.
Thanks for stopping by xx

My Crochet Flowers

Hi lovely bloggers!  Here are some of the crochet flowers I made while on holiday.  Unfortunately, they are all either white, or gold sparkle.  Those were the two lots of crochet cotton I bought, as they were in large balls, and you can make lots and lots from one 100gm ball, (I made all of the white flowers from half a ball).  The adorable booties were not crocheted by me, I saw them in a shop and couldn't resist buying them. I'm in the process of trying to copy them, as I love to make booties for charity. The butterfly is made by folding a large flower in half.

 How adorable are these?
Thanks for stopping by, and have a Great Day!! x
