As we had severe weather and was cold what better way to spend the time than making cards as had an anniversary, mothers day and another birthday approaching.
I just love making Eclipse Cards as they are really effective and so easy to make and more personal to the recipient of them.

As I am now all done for future birthdays, I thought I would have a play around with christmas card designs. Yes I know it’s only February but believe me christmas will soon be upon us !
Am sure you can guess I enjoy playing around with these large alphabet dies ( and learning all the time ) but I am very happy with outcome of this card and pretty confident I will be making bulk of these.
Today I made 2 more eclipse cards for family members birthdays. To be honest I am not 100% happy with these as looking back at them I should of added black outline on the letters. But I take this as a learning curve and will remember to do this next time.
As you know ( or may not know ) My gorgeous Goddaughter is approaching 1 ( where has that year gone ?? ) As her birthday cake is Fairy / Butterfly Themed, I was asked if I could make some Butterfly cupcake toppers.
This is what I made. Think it will fit in with the theme beautifully
Following on from my Fairy and Spaceman Cards, I made this for a special little lady who will be celebrating her 1st birthday

Last week I decided to play with a stamp and die set I had forgotten about ! I love this stamp set as so many uses and I made a bulk lot of these for any upcoming ladies occasions.
I also had a go at colouring them in ( which I will be first to admit I am hopeless at colouring ) but just love the scribble effect I did.
Supplies :- Beautiful You Stamp set, Nuvo Alcohol Markers, Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush Pens
So now with christmas is over with, now begins the mad rush of birthdays I have in next few months. I decided to start today with a card for my god daughter’s upcoming first birthday and for a special little man in my life.
For my god daughter’s card I decided to go with a Fairy theme as I know she has a fairy birthday cake on order so it seemed fitting. For the background I grabbed a piece of laminated sheet ( as I have no acetate ) and put Distress Oxides Worn Lipstick and Pickled Raspberry on it and spritzed with water and placed white card on top. This is first time I have done this and I am very pleased with result.
Such a shame the camera did not pick up the gorgeous glitter from Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush Pens. Again this was my first time using these and again I am so impressed with these and so easy to use. I have my eye on 2 more other sets ! This set was Spring / Summer.
For the special little man in my life I decided to use the Space Explorer stamp and die set. Again I am not that brilliant at colouring but i gave it a go … I know I have room for ALOT of improvement but I was pleased and hopefully little man will be too. The pens I used were Nuvo Alcohol Markers.
