Little Florist Girl (Wee Stamps image)

Hello crafty friends,

I'm back with what I think must be one of my all-time favourite images as this is the 4th time I've created a card with her and it's not often I use the same image twice! I have added the other 3 cards below for comparisons, I think this is my fave (which is good as I should be getting a bit better each time hehe). I added a couple of different laces to the bottom of this and used a leafy die cut as I thought it looked similar to her leaves. You can find this gorgeous image at Wee Stamps



 Interesting to see how different they all are (glad they weren't all the same colours etc haha, that would have been embarrassing). The older ones all have a flourish from Flourish with a Bling.

For The Birthday Girl (Paper Nest Dolls image and A Random Fan image)

Hi crafty friends,

Today I decided to mix it up a bit with 2 different company's images. I thought these two looked so cute together so I couldn't resist, doesn't it look like she's waiting for him to give her the cake hehe???

The boy is from Paper Nest Dolls and the girl is from A Random Fan. This background paper is actually mounted onto black cardstock but because of the background being so dark it is hard to tell.

The gorgeous flower is from Flourish with a Bling (my company) who are having a 50% off sale at the moment. We are sold out of this colour but I do have a couple left so if you order, let me know you came from my blog and I'll pop one in your order (our little secret hehe).

Birthday Fairy card (Scrapper's Delights image)

Me again,

Last time tonight and this card was made using a gorgeous fairy from Scrapper's Delights. The lovely fence and pearls are from Flourish with a Bling and  I think the clock chipboard is from Scrapmatts. I glittered the clock which has come out really beautifully in real life. I wound the flowers around it.
