Crafty Heart - Part Two

I'm a huge fan of giving books to kiddies for presents. So I wanted to create a little 'bookmark' to go with one of the pressies I'd bought for my lovely pal's little girl. The photo isn't great sorry, but you get the gist...

Her name appeared at the top, which I've cropped for obvious reasons, but you still get the idea. I was chuffed with it. I must buy a laminater though, as I think it would have been great to throw a laminate over to protect it.

The image is a sweet 'Wryn' from Tiddly Inks, which I coloured with my faithful Promarkers and added a little glitter to the hearts for a little girly bling. It was a quick make, but I was really pleased with the little extra it added to her present and will definitely do it again for future gifts. The style is very 'clean and simple' but that was what I was going for. Just a simple decorative border and some ink to the edges and the look was complete.

I hope you like it and if so, don't be shy, leave me a comment and let me know. Thanks for looking today. Hugs, Wends x

Crafty Heart




Here is a wee card I made for the daughter of a very dear friend. She was turning 6 and is right at that age, where there's no better present than glitter glue and bits of paper. She has a crafty wee heart, which of course I love! So when looking for a gift for this wee doll, I knew exactly what sort it had to be and had in mind the perfect image of Krista Smiths from Saturated Canary to use for her birthday card.

Another card that's been waiting in the wings for me to upload! I have to confess I have a few of these. I love to sit and colour and have so many images waiting to be made up into cards, and then so many that I've made up, waiting to be loaded onto my blog. Oh for just another hour in the day!!!

Graduation Mama

I made this card a while back, but with Greg's hospital stay, shifting house and putting ours on the market, there's been little time to blog my creations. So I'll try to do a little 'catch up' over the next few days.

I made this card for my lovely sister in law, who just finished her second degree. She continued teaching the whole time she was studying and has 3 growing children to boot! So I thought this was rather a commendable achievement and wanted to celebrate this with her through this creation.

Woohoo!

I'm back online! Thanks to my clever hubby, who has managed to boost the WiFi connection, so it runs the full length of the house. I have been missing getting my daily fix of crafty inspiration from all my favourite blogs out there. So I'm super excited to be back online.

It seems a lifetime ago my hubby was in hospital. He was so sick and it was such a stressful time! But he's out of hospital, minus his gall-bladder and is recovering so well. Can't believe how long he's suffered. Misdiagnosed twice by our GP! I managed to shift house while he was in hospital and put our house on the market. What a mission! I've been in 'survival mode' for the past few weeks and have missed so much having an internet connection, as crafting and checking in with my fav' blogs is such a great way to relax and so stress relieving! So I'm stoked to be back online now.

Missed you all like crazy!! Mwah, Wends xxx
