Valerija's card

Hi everyone. Hope you're all having a great week so far.

My mojo is still off on it's hols so I've decided to change tact and try other styles of cards so watch this space. Today's card is the one I made for the birth of my follower Valerija's baby. You may remember that she won the last Candy Giveaway and contacted me from the hospital. 

Card Ingredients.

Card Blank- 6" x 6" Craftwork Cards.
Topper- LOTV 'Little Ones' Art Pad (retired).
Papers- Maja Designs 'Vintage Baby' & 'Shades of Sofiero Monochrome'.
Cardstock- Create and Craft 'White Linen card (for butterflies)'.
Tattered Lace 'Shades Card (for hanger and mat)'.
Dies- Tattered Lace Essentials 'Pin Dot Rectangles'.
Magnolia Doohickey Box Magazine 'Volume 13'.
Tim Holtz Alterations 'Butterfly Frenzy'.
Ribbon- from stash.
Lace- from stash.
Cheesecloth- Anna Marie Designs 'White Voile'.
Ink- Distress Ink 'Walnut Stain'.
Stampin Up 'Chocolate Chip (for baby feet)'.
Other Stuff- Stickles in 'Stardust'. Pearls from stash.

I just love the blue and brown for baby boy cards which is why this week's card and last week's are in the same colours despite being made a year apart.

Chris and Lexi have now moved on to Japan where there're meeting up my youngest son, Kieran, and Lexi's friend for the last leg of their trip but not before Lexi had a makeover....

Doesn't she look gorgeous! I wish she'd bought the dress but you just hire it and have your hair styled for photos. I asked my son why he hadn't done the same with the men's traditional clothes but he decided not to. Maybe they do a similar thing in Japan so I'll have to work on him :D

Okay, that's enough from me for today. Happy crafting and I'll see you next week.

  14. Hi Debra, me again.
    Thank you for the information on the Sneakers Stamps.
    I have a very bad habit of throwing away the packaging.
    I keep my stamps in plastic wallets .. I MUST learn to also keep the packaging.
    Have a wonderful weekend
