Baby Boy

hi All,
i'm here with a baby card today.
for those of you who know me you will know how difficult I found this card to make.
of course I happy for the new mummy and daddy but still find this a heart breaking subject.
having said that, I did want to make a nice card so here is my effort

as you can see, I still have a blank panel. I'm waiting for the little lad to be named so I can add the details to the card.
(come on mummy and daddy, give him a name)! LOL
I used a stamp that I bought from a very kind lady on facebook (I think our path's have crossed for a reason and a friendship has begun).
the stamp is fizzymoon
die's used are spellbinders lacy squares
spellbinders lacy circles
spellbinders picot edge circles
lala land heart border
memory box classic alphabet
and Martha stewart heart border punch
i'll update this post with a finished photo when the baby has a name and my card is completed properly.
thanks for stopping by

spellbinders Fanciful lattice kraft card

hi, Im here today to show you my new spellbinders die set.
its called Fanciful lattice and its a great size, approx. 5x7 inches so perfect for card blanks.
I chose my favourite kraft card for this one
adding white ink makes the frames stand out.
the smaller frame is also spellbinders, decorative labels 8 set and stamped that with justrite grand sentiments stamps using versafine vintage sepia.
the flowers are spellbinders bitty blossom set coloured with copics R20 R11and YG91
I mounted the kraft card onto a white blank to give me the tiny white border and because I prefer the inside of the card to be white rather than brown. its just a personal thing.
its that time of year again, you know... when its too dark to get good photo, unless you are a great photographer, which I am not so please forgive me for my poor efforts. one of these days I will get round to making a light box to see if that helps. its on my ever growing to-do list. why does that list never get any shorter even though I spend more than half my life crafting!
the clock has just chimed for midnight and for those who know me you will know this is my favourite time for cardmaking so guess what I am off to do now? lol
back with another card tomorrow.
thank you for stopping by.
