Get Well Soon

The challenge this time around at CD Sunday is for anyone who has been feeling poorly. The theme chosen by Sue is Get Well and here is my card.

I used a couple of backing sheets from Makey Bakey Mice from Crafter's Companion for the backing papers inside and out and the main image is from You're never too old by Card Creations Plus.

I chose this image for a golfing friend of ours who has recently been in hospital, but thankfully he is recovering nicely now.

It is a pop up card -

and here is the inside.

I've taken a side view so that you can see the layers.

I'd like to wish anyone who is not feeling too well this morning a speedy recovery and suggest that maybe some gentle card making and crafting might be just the answer to help. xx

Pretty Birdie

I started with some shaving foam and ink to make the background and then used a small corner stamp from Clarity to build a frame. Inside the frame I stamped the beautiful bird the words and two tiny birds holding each end. I used Spectrum Noir pencils to colour in the bird. I then trimmed back the card and mounted it on a toning card and then onto a white 8 x 8 card.

This is for this month's Clarity Challenge Blog.

Quilted Fun

This time it's my turn to chose the theme for the CD Sunday Challenge and I've chosen Quilted Fun.

I hope you will enjoy this challenge and join in. All you have to do is remember to use something from a CD and let us know which one - just in case it's one we don't already have and need to go shopping! lol

I used Paintbox Poppets and Bebunni Birthday for the backing papers, both CDs are from Crafter's Companion. The stamped circle,  flower and leaf dies are from Marianne. I used a mixture of paper piecing and colouring for the little rabbit. The stamped sentiment is from Lily of the Valley.
