Happy Ellie Birthday!

Hello Crafters

How’s your crafting days going? This week, when I have been getting in from work, I have been sneaking off to my craft room. Unusual for me, as I’m usually sorting bits out ad never seem to get any ‘time’ during the week, but I just went there and played. This resulted in 2 little cards, and a new sort of style for me, felt quite brave actually!

This one was made around a stamp from Woodware, originally bought last year to use on a baby project, and didn’t in the end, as you do. This time I just wanted to try some colouring, so stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black, and coloured with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. Once he was finished, I just had to give him a home, and I have been really trying to use my scraps, so this card was made from all the scrap bits of paper and unused cut-outs from previous projects. I loved him so much, I did another.

…..and of course, equally loved this too! So I now have 2 children’s reserved cards, and I have left the greeting blank inside, so I can fill this out for the occasion when needed.

Hope this made you smile as much as it did me. Have a great week

    1. Thank you, it was a new design I decided to try, and it still frames the image. Learn something new every day! Thanks for visiting 😌


  3. Awwww, these two cards are absolutely adorable! Isn’t it lovely when you get some unexpected time to play in the craft room?
