For Our Little Princess

Good evening people - the evening before Eleri's 7th birthday - wow!

So I'm going to show you the cards I've made her.



I just loved the way this first card was coming together. The papers and the matching brad are Princess Fairytale from Dovecraft, and the border punch is an X-cut punch, and I bought them all last week from The Range - I love them. The image is from Saturated Canary - I am so falling in love with these images at the moment! I've realised from looking at the way other people have coloured this image that she actually has a hairband in with a leaf next to the flower, but I thought it was part of her hair!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Do You Stack Up - Layers
CES Challenges - Lots of layers
One Stitch at a Time - Anything goes

And the second card is from Andrew



This time the image is from Little Miss Muffett stamps. The papers are from a free paper pack with Crafts Beautiful last spring. I intended to enter this week's challenge at Craft Your Days Away, so I used my WRMK Sew Easy tool to sew a scallop on the strip of paper across the middle (but darn it, I didn't get on the computer in time to enter the challenge :{). I also put some little stitches at the corners of the image.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Digital Tuesday - Use your stash - last year's papers and Sew Easy tool
Crafters Companion - Anything goes
Drunken Stampers - Texture - the stitching and the stickles

Well that's enough from me - I need to wrap Eleri's pressie - I hope she likes it! I did tell her this evening that I'd forgotten to get her anything, so she said I'll have to get her something when I buy her new bed! LOL! She also hasn't realised that my sister brought the present over from my Mum and Dad this afternoon. I think she will be a very happy little girl in the morning LOL!

Now I've got to get my thinking cap on to make some cards for Andrew, who will be 11 on Monday! And I've promised to make Eleri some cake pops for her to take to school for her classmates on Monday. I just hope I start to feel better and get some energy (a nasty cold caught up with me last weekend - I normally manage to fight them off, but not this one!)

See you soon.

Love, Andrea xx
