Baby Boy and a Christmas Moose

We've had a lot of sadness in our family recently, but I thought I'd try to get back into the swing of things today and make a couple of cards.

My baby card uses this cutie from Lili of the Valley.  Coloured with watercolour pencils and then the BG splattered to match.  I also coloured up a die cut heart and added gloss and glitter to it and to the label on the baby box.  I also added some Spectrum Noir clear sparkle to the baby's top, so it's nice and sparkly.  Silver sequins/stars from Taylored Expressions.


I couldn't get a decent photo of this Christmas card :(  I've used some shiny red washi tape and it looks much better in real life!  I also die cut my sentiment with washi - it was a bit lost on my white BG, so I die cut it in black and double mounted it  - looks much better now and adds a bit of dimension too!  My little moose is from catsonappletrees - mounted on dimensionals and googly eyes added.  Red sequins etc from Taylored Expressions.

  2. I'm so sorry to hear that you've had a lot of sadness at your house. My heart goes out to you, and I hope the sadness passes and the sun comes out again.

    Your cards today are wonderful. The moose with googly eyes will definitely deliver Christmas cheer, and the welcome baby card is super sweet. You are amazing to be able to make such great cards at this sad time. Hugs to you, Lynne.

  7. Your sweet little Ruby is adorable. I'm a big fan of all dogs, but all from the terrier family are my favorite. She is adorable. We have a miniature schnauzer named Belle, and she's a sweetie too. Dogs are just so precious to us. I'm not a "cat person" but I know that people who love cats love them as much as we love our dogs. Now, about the card.....LOL Fabulous job on both, and thanks so much for sharing your talents with us.

  18. Both are such fab cards Lynne! I wish I could be organised enough to start on christmas cards already! (It means emptying out my craft cupboard to get at the box of Christmas supplies, and I really can't be bothered, lol)
