made a few...

Hello, hope everyone in blogland is well and happy :)
I have a few cards to show you, hope you like them.

This first card has been made for a lad at work who's fiancee is expecting a baby boy in December. Mo's spit happens digi is my first port of call for baby cards, I love it, and has been coloured with promarkers. The spotty paper is dovecraft back to basics, and the pretty scalloped border around the image was made using Nellie Snellen fancy dies (daisy)...

Next up, is this card, made for my Mom. I love this Kanban roses stamp, I coloured with promarkers this time, but it's just as lovely coloured with watercolours too. The background paper was a freebie in a mag. I've used the Nellie Snellen daisy border again on this card, love how it frames the roses...

Kaboodle Doodles - flowers
Totally Gorjuss - pink & green

The following card was inspired from a craft mag using the free papers within it (Prima Botanical collection). I really loved the simple but striking example inside the mag and thought my Mom would like it too, so decided to make a similar style card. I'd already made her a card from myself and hubby, so this card was made for my Son to give to her...

The next card was given to my Sister for her birthday on Tuesday. The Precious Moments image, yep you guessed it, was coloured with promarkers ;)
The sentiment was a freebie from tlc creations, isn't it lovely? The spotty paper is by Stampin Up.
If this image was a photo of my Sister and me when we were little, there would probably be a spider or an earwig inside that flower that she was offering me to sniff! She was never scared of bugs and crawlies, unlike me.
