At Spoon full of Sugar challenge blog they have generously accepted to allow all kinds of images to be used in the Challenges... so now I can participate in this as well! Yay :) Debbie has designed a lovely sketch, and Katharina is offering one of her lovely stamps ( they are lovely) to a winner, so double worth a try!! This is the Birthday card I have done for this Challenge.
The stamp I used for the main image is from Cuddly Buddly, and the round sentiment is from Stampin' Up.I have paper pieced the dress to match with one of the background papers, and stamped designs around the image (stamp set from Studio G).In the middle of the brad I chose to stick a small sticker that is a miniture of one of the background papers' designs. Papers: leftouts from stash Flowers: Prima Matting Brown Paper : Bazzil Bling Ribbon : DCWV preppy Ribbons Also added a rub on at the bottom corner : From K& CO
I am a Religous Sister, and have been for the last 21 years. I have always had a love for drawing, collages, and anything to do with art and crafts. Some years back started to draw and paint posters, and cards once in a while. About three years ago I decided to have a go with real cardmaking, and have been hooked since! I also use this hobby to involve kids I take care of, and they love to make cards themseves to the people they love! :)
I think that when you give someone a hand crafted card, you are showing that you really care, and is worth to spend time and money on her/him to make him something unique.. a part of yourself!
Presently my days are full of kids, kids who live in a Children's Home, kids who are so energetic and burst with life.. and I really love each and every one of them. We make each other's day, and they are also so very proud of me and my cards!
