It's the school holidays so I've had a bit of a leisurely get up this morning (as leisurely as you can when you've got two small children running around getting stuck in places and demanding more toast!) so I've managed to grab a few minutes on the computer to get this card posted.
It was my youngest son, Charlie's 2nd birthday on Monday and this is the card I made for him:
I wish I'd taken a close-up of the circle sentiment - it says "hugs and kisses just for you" and was a fab freebie from Sentiments 4 You. The dragon is a digi called Augustus the Dragon but I've got no idea where I got him from - if anyone could help me out, I'd appreciate it!
Image - Augustus the Dragon
Circle sentiment - Sentiments 4 You
Text sentiment - Computer generated
Papers - Daisy and Dandelion Picnic Patch
Buttons and ribbon - Stash
Totally Gorjuss - Fab sketch
Whoopsi Daisy - Springtime
Pollycraft - Old/neglected stamp/image
Simon Says Stamp - Spring colours/Easter
Creative inspirations - Punches and/or dies
CRAFT - Animals/pets (does fictional count???)
And then I just wanted to share with you the Easter bonnet I made for George for his Easter Parade yesterday. It took nearly 6 hours! Mainly because I had to sew on most of the pieces because the glue wouldn't stick :-(
The lettuces were made by scrunching and layering circles of tissue paper and the carrots are rolled up tissue paper with frayed green tissue paper attached to the top for leaves. The sign was computer generated and then cut out using nesties labels 8, I think (maybe 7? Need to check!) with ink sponged through the die to look like grass/sky. You can see a few of the little creatures I added but there are ladybirds, snails, dragonflies and butterflies all the way round. And some naughty little rabbits stealing his veggies :-) I loved making it!
Now I need to go and update my allotment blog too! Getting there.... slowly..... :-)
Love 'n' hugs,
