New Arrivals

Three cards today - and not a Christmas card in sight!  

The first is for a friend's daughter and hopefully has arrived in Australia by now.  I used dies from the Sue Wilson 'New Arrival' collection, a recent birthday present.   The stitched dies are part of the Sue Wilson 'Stitched Lattice' set of dies.  The names are computer generated.  The dark pink ducks were snippets, so I'll be off to play in The Playground. 

I am joining in the following challenges with this card:
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Weeks 260 & 261 ~ Use Snippets


A similar card this time, but for a little boy born on Friday.  As the card with be hand delivered, the boat, feet, heart button and duck are raised up on foam pads to add dimension.

I am joining in the following challenges with this card:
Allsorts Challenge Week 394/395 - Blue Bingo (Add dimension, Blue and yellow, No designer paper)

My final card is for Alexander Luke's 'soon to be 3 years old' big sister. The Woodware 'Flower Fairy' image is stamped with Memento 'Tuxedo Black', coloured with Promarkers and covered with a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush to add a bit of sparkle. The image is die cut with a MB 'Stitched Scalloped Circle die and I used a MB 'Stitched Country Border' die for the sentiment

 I am joining in the following challenges with this card: 
Less is More Challenge #307 & #308 - Children
Butterfly Challenge #68 ~ All kinds of Fairies, Elves, Gnomes and Pixies
