Good Morning:-)

Well I hope everyone is well today.
This is the first post I have scheduled as the Olympic torch is near me today we have decided to escape the madness and take the kids to Chessington for the day!!!
Finger's crossed it's a lovely dry day lol

Well today's card is another card for my God-daughter, but this time from my children to her.

This card is made into an A5 size, the card stock is a linen affect, but image is printed onto neenah card. For the trim and layer's I have used core'dination card stock in turquoise.
The trim I have made using a Martha Stewart punch, the numbers are plain white ones from hobbycraft i have coloured to match. and the little wire beads and flower's are old ones from my stash.

 The little wire beads and flower's are old ones from my stash, but just seemed to match perfectly.

The image is Jules from saturated canary.
I have coloured her in with SN as usual and then added a little glitter for the under part of her skirt.
I must admit I have fallen in love with the digi's from the website.... oops may get expensive lol.
Have a lovely day whatever you are doing

Well it's a beautiful Saturday morning here, fingers crossed it lasts!!!!
It was the first day of the school holidays yesterday, so we did a trip to the library to join the summer reading scheme. Then kids decided they needed a treat from Gregg's!!!!!!
Not much crafting done:-(

Today's card is a card I have made for our God-daughter's 10th birthday on Monday.

I have used a 8x8 card base in white. For the layer's I have used black centura pearl card

The paper layer's are from Tim Holtz idea-ology range vintage shabby
The word topper was just from my computer
The doily and gems are from my stash.

The image is Ellie's Birthday from saturated canary
The images are so cute and with large area's quite easy to colour.
I have as per normal used spectrum noir pens to colour the image.
