A New Baby Girl Card

Good morning, hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Its my last week of my hospital placement this week, I have been there 16weeks now and will miss going. Still no job due to the current job freeze in the hospitals in Leeds which is a little disheartening :( but hopefully the freeze will soon be lifted. Fingers crossed : )
I made this new baby girl card for a nurse i have been working with who goes on maternity leave the same day i leave. The image is from Penny Black and is coloured using Copic Markers. The papera are SU 'Sweet Always'. The large circle and scallop are from Nestabillities and cut using my Cuttlebug. The flowers are cut with a retro flower punch and i added a small candy dot from Pebbles Inc. The sentiment is from the SU set ' Congrats' and the scallops are Su oval punches.
Have a great day

P.S My friend Diane's (at Uni) husband has his own printing firm and has designed his own range of stamps. His website will be up and running soon so I will post a link as soon as i find out. Be sure to take a look as you wont be disappointed.

Tilda and LadyBird

Sorry for the lack of blogging and leaving comments on your blogs, I have been very busy trying to finish my placement documents and applying for jobs.
I made this card ages ago and forgot all about it. The image is from Magnolia and she is coloured using copic markers. The papers are by Stampin Up and the cardstock is also by SU. I added some stitching with my sewing machine, I still need some practice it feels really strange sewing on card. The flowers are by Prima and I added a spacer and small brad. The sentiment is from the Oval all SU stamp set and is mounted on a SU scallop.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving lovely comments

Surfer Edwin and a Little Space of my Own

Hi everyone, hope your all having a good week. I have been off placement this week and its been lovely to spend some time at home with Megan and Jack. Tomorrow we are going to Scarborough and Whitby on a daytrip. This is what inspired me to make this card with the Magnolia Summer kit stamps. He is Surfer Edwin and is coloured using Copic Markers. The papers are from the Basic Grey 'Lime Rickey' collection. The colours are so bright and cheery. I used SU cardstock for matting and layering and the sentiment is also SU. The flowers are my favourite Prima Hydrangea's with a little spacer from my friend Nikki's online shop(there is a link on my sidebar) and I added a little Papermania brad.

A big THANKYOU to everyone who left me lovely comments about my graduation, and to celebrate I am putting together a celebratory blogcandy which i will post details within the next few weeks.

My hubby finally finished my loft which I have hijacked as a crafting room here is a picture

Its empty at the moment I am in the process of packing all my stash (which is taking up the dining table) into boxes so i can transfer it upstairs. Its only a small space but ITS ALL MINE ! The other half of the room is for the computer but im sure in time I will claim it.

Thanks for stopping by
