Good morning everyone. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.
Today its time for a new Hobbycutz Challenge which has been chosen by our Wendy and its. . . . .Not A Card. Our sponsors this week are A Day For Daisies.
A little while ago I showed a card I made for Nesta's niece after she had a baby girl (peek here if you want to see it). Well, this is the pressie I made for little Anya.
Its a 8x8 pink box frame and the filigree section is foam mounted so a photo sits inside (I didn't include the photo as obviously she's not my little un and you have to be careful these days)
I didn't want to make it babyish as I would like to think she would want to keep it (or her parents anyway) just changing the photo as she grows. I did stamp her date of birth on it but in a subtle way.
Pink 8x8 box frame from The Range
Pink PMD card
Hobbycutz Butterflies (Versamarked and mica'ed)
SB Spiral Blossom One
SB Filigree Delight
X Cut Alphabet dies
Tonic flower punch
Card-io Rose Garden and Mum's Garden stamps
I was very pleased with how this turned out but I have yet to hand it over as I've had clashing schedules with Anya's Mum and Dad. I did meet up with them at Nesta's party and had a cuddle with Anya (and promptly handed her back when she started to squawk. . . . . . .obviously no volume switch fitted lol!!!)
Lastly, a little gift tag to accompany it made with one of the sponsor images called Little Dancer. Don't laugh at my colouring lol!!!
Hope you fancy joining in the challenge. Would be lovely to see some familiar names in the entries.
Before I forget, a couple of you ladies asked about how I got my bracket borders straight on Dave's get well card. Sorry to disappoint but I just lined them up by eye and hoped for the best lol! I usually have more issues if I start measuring and trying to be too precise.
Had a great day with John on Thursday. The craft cave is a treasure trove but I didnt pinch anything, just borrowed a stamp (with permission) and a couple of bits of bling.
We actually did more chatting and cooking than crafting and had a real laugh.
Ita, sorry, I didn't take any notes; I'm not a gal who kisses and tells hahaha!
Have a great Sunday folks. Singapore GP for me today but sadly, only highlights so have to keep away from the news or anything that will give away the result lol!
