Happy Birthday Hannah !

Today is my daughter's birthday and we celebrated it by spending it sitting in the ante natal dept of the local hospital .Her first  baby is due today and it has been a rather difficult pregnancy for her , her visits to the midwife have been aplenty as the baby is not growing as well as he should be . After another monitoring  and measuring session , they sent her home . Much to her relief - she has said all along that she did nt want to have him on  her birthday as thats her day !
Here is the card i made for her- so that it will encourage her to get her figure back - not that it will take long thanks to the small bump !

I made the template myself , the lace is a Martha steward punch and the Tattoo is a rub on 

This second card is for the i♥ promarkers challenge , this week is a Christmas theme . The challenge this week is sponsored by Digi doodles and i have used the Ragga mutts Play ball image , I loved the little dog as he reminds me of my dog Hovis

I♥PROMARKERS challenge 24 - Buttons

Morning all , I know two posts in less than 24 hours - what am I like ?
This is for the I ♥ PROMARKERS  challenge . This week we want to see some buttons on your project ,so get raiding your stash !
I had planned this card with the intention of using some gorgeous antique style,  heart shaped pewter buttons but of course i can't remember where i have put them !
Luckily i had enough mirri board left after cutting the swirls to cut some buttons using my sizzlits die .I wish i knew where those buttons were though - they match the background paper a treat .

Distressed !

That is how  I felt when I saw what our challenge was going to be this week at I ♥ promarkers .I don't usually do distressing on my cards   I usually go for the neater style . My work space is messy enough without me adding to it .I ended up with ink splodges,torn up paper pieces and the dust from the roughed up bits every where !
The challenge is sponsored by Joanna sheen so you could win £10 to spend at her online store .I chose this gorgeous Mo Manning  bunny 'cos he knows exactly how I was feeling - the poor guy looks like he is going to burst into tears any second .
The heart charm is made by stamping the image onto card , cutting away the inside filigree parts and then triple embossing  with gold powder . I made it ages ago and did nt have a use for it   until now .
