Welcome to all my blogging friends! I am now a Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator.

Sunday 24 March 2013


Good morning to you all. I hope you are keeping warm and safe with all the snow in the UK.
Fortunately I am here in sunny Spain and I don't want to boast about the temperatures here. Low 20's at the moment with a light breeze.

Another Sunday which means another challenge from us over at 
This week is it the turn of fellow DT - SUE and she chose

MARINA continues as your Guest Designer and I know you will like her latest contribution, do take a look at her blog to see what she has created.

I was struggling this week as I couldn't find any images suitable on the collection of CD's I have here, however my fellow teamie - Carol, very kindly sent me a few images to use, thanks Carol

My DT Card is below


Cream 5 x 5 Card Blank
Beautiful Bundle of Joy image from Ooh-la-la CD - Kiddiwinks
I printed this using Glossy Photo Paper and then placed it onto the card base.
For dimension I used a Photo Frame which I got from Craftwork Cards a while ago, this fitted nicely around the image. As the frame was already embossed I improvised and used my Eye Shadow's to give the flowers a little colour.
Card Candi for the centre of the large flowers and a couple of Gems for the smaller flowers.
I originally left the design like this, however I thought it needed a little something extra, so I took it into CAP2 and added the sentiments - Bundle of Joy & Congratulations.

I hope you will join us again as we love to look at your blogs and leave comments on your designs.

Take a moment to check out my fellow teamie's blogs, you wont be disapointed.

A lovely card Christine - I really like the look of the frame - haven't seen those around - and your improvisation with the eye shadow is a good wheeze.

What a beautiful card Christine. This is such a lovely image, it looks like the baby is trying to touch the flowers. Michelle x

Poor you, missing all this exciting snow and not being able to enjoy your winter woollies for months on end!
Christine, your card is absolutely dreamy. I love the flowers, and that you kept the beautiful image centre-stage.

This is a beautiful card Christine, such an adorable image - so pretty.
Be careful telling us the temperature is in the low 20's or we might hunt you down and come to visit.
