Wedding Card

I don't make many wedding cards being more of an age for grandparent cards, so enjoyed making this one for a change. Plus other than the date stamp (Pink Gem) everything was free :c) The image is cropped from a freebie called along the beach which I got from here

Everything else is from a free kit from Raspberry Road called butterfly dreams. I added loads of stickles and a bit of glamour dust here and there.
Challenges:
Scrappy Frogs - bling
Bee Crafty - chop a digi
totally Gorjuss - as you like it
Charisma Cardz - glitter it

Template for notebook box


Sorry I thought you would be able to read the sizes.
You need 2 A4 sheets. 
All my instructions are in inches :c)
Cut one to 10.5 by 8.25 (width of normal A4)
Score at 0.5 and 1 along both long side to form the box bits
Score lines shown above from the left at 1.5, 2, 7, 7.5
Cut away the top and bottom section as in the pic
You will need another piece of card 5 by 6.25 to form the front.

Hope that helps

Christening Card Mark 2

This was the card I should have been making yesterday for my friends grandson- it's also the card that very nearly ended up in the round recepticle!!!! I've never done cut it out yourself decoupage and that turned out to be the easy bit lol!
As you'll have noticed it doesn't close properly but looks ok to me. The string was an afterthought to cover up where I'd put the sentiment on at the wrong angle and it marked the paper but I really like that now.
I only used 3 of the layers as I didn't want to tempt fate and lose any important bits lol!
The real disaster was the box - measure twice and cut once - did that so how did I end up with a box where the bottom didn't fit the card and a lid that was half an inch bigger than the bottom but still didn't fit the card???? So i had to start again - this time I made the bottom and checked it fitted before I did anything else.

If my friend doesn't like it I might just make her eat it lol!
Hugs,
Debbie xx

Christening Card

This little guy arrived all the way from the USA today (delivered in 6 days by Whimsy Stamps) and I just had to ink him straight away. My friend has asked me to make her a christening card for her grandson so instead of doing hers I made mine lol!
Then I had the idea of making a clock as a gift - really wish I'd made it to match now it's finished but too late lol! I've now made 7 of these all together and only have 3 mechanisms left - great for recycling CDs although I have used a new one this time.

Sometimes my ideas come from nowhere lol! I was originally going to make a bouquet but the straws weren't up to the job so made holes in a piece of card much like xmas tree lights

Love is in the Air for Teddy Bo Tuesday

Awwwww this is a handy theme at Teddy Bo for me this time as it's my wedding anniversary on Thursday - 3 whole years since I lost my sanity for the second time LOL!
I've used Teddy Bo & Bea Tabs no 4 and teamed them with Henbury Lane papers.
There are some fantastic new images this week including the first one of a new scratchy series (Bo doesn't really have fleas) and there's even a sale so you can get more paws for your pennies

The Reason I've Lost Most of This Week

And he's only just over a week old :c)
Tall and very tanned child or Auntie was smitten!
Even roughty toughty hubby thought he was incredibly cute! 

He already has his own shetland pony and jodphurs - not that his mum is horse mad or anything :c)

Children at IDIC

We have a theme of children at I Did it Creations this week and a fabulous sponsor of Ellephantastic.
I've used this great image called Rory football and coloured him with a mixture of promarkers and watercolour pencils for a change.
Please nip on over to the challenge blog to check out the work of the rest of the wonderful DT.
Hugs,
Debbie x

Baby Card & Hamper

I have the concentration of a gnat at the moment so colouring and me are not friends lol! I found this box card at Scrapbooking Mad and as you'll recognise it's a nit wits one. Loads of cutting a lot of scratching head and fingers crossing that it was still all stuck together this morning and here it is :c)
You even get a box in the download but I forgot to take a piccy of it - fingers crossed I can write it without stuffing it up
I got the hamper from our local charity shop and have padded the bottom out with nappies and wipes - sorry about the rubbish pic but it's very dark in our dining room
