Pink with Ribbon at Crafty Bloggers Network

Over at Crafty Bloggers Network the challenge this month is to use Pink and a Ribbon.

Our sponsor this month is Art by Miriam and I chose this image, Happy Mail.  I decided to make a Get Well card.  I coloured the image with copics and Spectrum Noirs and made a card from two Papermania Capsule collection die cuts.  I added a Simon Says Stamp sentiment and speech bubble die, some pink ribbon, an EK Success border punch, some pearls and Papermania vintage notes flower and tag.

I hope you will enter your Pink with Ribbon cards this month at Crafty Bloggers Network.

Something for a Baby at Craft for the Craic

At Craft for the Craic this month the challenge is Something for a Baby, and remember we love to see all types of crafts, not just papercrafting.

I made a Christening card for a baby girl, embossing some pink card with a docrafts dotty embossing folder and mounted it onto a square card.  I stamped the Lily of the Valley baby stamp onto a rectangle of white card with Hero Arts Bubble Gum shadow ink, using a 1" circle punch to 'bite' out the corners.  I added some lace, pink sheer ribbon tied in a bow, some pearls, a puffy heart and a glitzy gem.

Let's see what you're making for a baby this month over at Craft for the Craic!

Wednesday Craft Club

At last night's craft club I brought along coloured card and patterned papers to create some cards inspired by a card set on Sarah Moerman's blog.  She has some very pretty card sets in that post.

Another Bank Holiday weekend on the horizon! So looking forward to it.

Don't forget to call back tomorrow when I'll have a card to show you for the new challenge at Craft for the Craic
