A Birthday Card

 I always make a birthday card for staff when I know its thier birthday at work. One of our LSA's is male and had a birthday last week.

 I found this cute birdy and coloured him with copics - I can not for the life of me remember WHERE he is from!!

I added glossy accents to the eyes and glitter to the flame.

Back soon

 coloured with copic pens and a silver pen. I added glitter to the wings and fireflies.

 Layered using spelbinder gold dies.

 raised up with 3D foam pads.

 I think this is a stitchy bear digital stamp.

 Once again coloured with copic pens.

 I printed out all the sentiments in word.

 This digital stamp is by the waxed fruit company.

 I added glossy accents to the windows and lights.

Notebooks and a Parcel.

 I have so much to show you, after a busy weekend of card making , but that can wait. I finished my last two note books for school. I need to order some more as they are going down really well.
When we do lots of one to one work and pupils are feeling low, we give them a note book to write stuff down in. I lkie to get them to write a couple of small positives a day in the front of the book and any negative stuff at the back ( to be torn out )

 I just use scraps of papper and a couple of charms to dress up the book and make it mnore personal.

 I bought some new stamps recently and they are perfect for a little note inside.

 When I can remember what make they are, I will pop it up here. They were very cheap though.

 LOOK what the postman brought me!! I was lucky enpough to win this on Rebecca Mcleans Blog.
Isn't she clever?

 I was a little worried opening it up.

 I just LOVE it!

 Its full of spooky pages.

I thought I might have a go but maybe instead of halloween, I might make a little box of Affirmations for my students. I will lety you see how i get on .

I'll post my card making later in the week.

Sweet Pea Card

 I was asked to make a Birthday Card for a friend . A Girly card...easy peasy with the Sweet Pea digi stamps. I love Norma J Burnell's Fairy Tangle stamps.
This one is called "mid Summer Dragonflies".

 I have coloured with copic pens and used two layers of stickles glitter glue over the dragonflies.
The eyes have glossy accents on them.

Hope she likes it.

I suppose it's about time.

 To start making the dereaded Christmas Cards. I do love making cards but I am not a big fan of Christmas cards for some reason. I love the ones that everyone else maker - just never happy with mine.
I have kept these two reasonably simple.

 I love this little elf. I have coloured him with copics and laid himon top of a texct stamp.

 For this one , I used water colour card and made a "wash" for the text stamp.

I used a diecut bought from Hobby craft last year to pop on top.

Dilly Beans - Halloween

 yayy - weekend! what a long week . I am posting my design team card for Dilly Beans and this time it is Halloween. You couldn't get more perfect stamps for this challenge!

 I chose a set of four, coloured them with copics, added loads of glitter glue and mounted them on little squares of card.
Simple.

 The light is not good today , so you can't see that the stripey background paper has a gorgeous pearlised sheen to it.

The rules to enter , details of prizes and Gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the design team arte HERE
