I am really getting into this type of card. Its a bit out of my comfort zone though as I am a red & gold girl at Christmas really but I am enjoying trying this new theme. I need to brighten it up a bit with the colours but the Figgy papers by Basic Grey are all this darker colour.
I just adore the way she puts her papers together with such stunning results. I wish I had her talent for doing this but I can't quite seem to get it right. Anyway I have had a go with a birthday card for my mum in her style. I had some decoupage which I made up a while ago and it goes quite well on this card.
I have been busy making the mass selection for general use, I make special ones for friends and family but associates get the shorter straw and get these. I still put as much effort in to make them nice so I hope they are well recieved. I don't like the snow on the houses its too heavy looking and I haven't got it right but it can't be changed now. Other than that I am quite pleased with them.
I attempted to make a wipe clean counting book for Noah but its not what I wanted so I will redo it. It needs to be bigger so I can get the relevant number of animals per page and also get the names on the same side as the pictures. I wanted it wipeable as he is only 10months and a bit messy :-) bless him and he can have a chew if he wants too, I have rounded the corners for him.
I HAVE NO IDEA WHY THE PENGUINS ARE SIDEWAYS ON BUT THEY WON'T TURN SO SORRY :-(
I adore Autumn colours so I thought I would put the photo's I have taken into an album of that theme. Thanks to my friend Sue for the idea of the poem by Mr Keats and the other 2 poems by (authors unknown) which I found online.
Papers are Dovecraft and Coredinations plus a few extra bits and my Accents Cricut cart for some of the embellishments. New Leaf die from Sizzix and a leaf punch I found in my stash
