Birthday Card for Younger Twin (By 4 mins)



This card uses one of my favourite Stella images from Bugaboo
I have coloured her using my Chameleon pens
Then mounted her onto a piece of purple card 
I did the same with the sentiment
I then used a woodware stencil, purple and pink inks to create the border
My sisters who are identical twins and older than me, try really hard to not be identical
So I like to use the same card design but give them a unique card as the same time

Birthday Card for Oldest Twin



This card uses a lovely digi stamp that I got from Saturated Canary
Unfortunately this digi shop has now closed.
The image is coloured with my spectrum noir trimarkers 
Then matted onto a piece of yellow card as was the sentiment
I used a woodware stencil, with yellow and orange inks to create the border

My sister doesn't like ice cream so I thought this sentiment was funny
 as shes older than me so to tell her that she has aged 
because she didn't eat enough ice cream amuses me.

Birthday Card for Mum


This card uses a lovely image and sentiment from Bugaboo
I coloured them with a mixture of my Chameleon Pens and Trimarkers
Rather than cut the image out and mat it onto the paper
I used my Scan n Cut and cut the circle out the backing paper
I then finished the card with a couple of bits of snippets
for behind the sentiment and to make the flowers
with a small gem in the middle for a little sparkle

Not a Card



 My grandson is now 4 months old and not seeing in whilst in lockdown is really hard
So as he seems to have a leaky value and dribbles for England
 I thought I would make some bibs and vests a bit more interesting.
I used some iron on transfer paper that I brought from Amazon
and just designed the bits in word, printed it and ironed it on


I am quite pleased with how the turned and out and it should make my DD and SIL smile

He thought it was very funny

Anything but a card



My sister asked me to do her a voucher for her step son and his family
I have done all sorted but decided this time on something they could keep as well.
I ordered some fairy lights attached to cork from ebay and my sister saved me one of her gin bottles.
This one had orange bands in the glass so I used orange vinyl to match
I used a SVG of the animals in a row and then used the Walt Font for the text.
This was all done in the Brother Canvas software.
This was then sent to my Scan and Cut and cut out.
I have then weeded all the bits I did not want to transfer to the bottle out.
Then using transfer paper I transferred the vinyl to the bottle.
The cork lights I brought were to small for this bottle and fell straight in!!
So I used the original cork cut off the bit that went in the bottle and glued the cork lights to it.
Problem solved lol
Finally I did the words of the voucher onto a tag and tied it around the bottle neck with orange ribbon.

Reason for not Blogging ~ I became a Naughty Nanny


I am sorry for my lack of posts.
Skip to bottom of post if you want to see my make.
My daughter and son in law had this little bundle of mischief
on 11 Dec 2019, let me introduce my grandson Alfred.
His birth ended up as a C section, but both him and my daughter are fine, he was a very healthy 9lbs 3ozs. I was with them all through it and saw him as soon as he was moved to the recovery room, truly a magical moment.
As we have funny blood in the family they didn't want to take any risks with DD so I was travelling down to their house every evening after work to give a double dose of blood thinning injections. Anyone who has had these will know they are quite painful injections to have. 
Alfie also had a 100% love heart tongue tie, he gained weight well with my DD feeding him but was choking and getting quite frustrated. So he was assessed then 5 days later had his tongue tie corrected, his still learning to move his tongue properly but is doing really well.  So now his fixed, DD injections are over and she can drive again I can get back to crafts as well as lots of nanny cuddles.
As they didn't find out the sex of the baby until he was born, I made his quilt in between running around.

The materials are from our local garden centre that still has a crafts section, they are all soft and fleecy, the back is minky fabric and its edged in satin ribbon.

With some squares left I made a taggy blanket using some of the ribbons from his many lovely gifts, some bits left over from quilt and the rest from my ribbon box.



This is for the following challenges 


Not bad for my second quilt lol

At last a post and I did warn you that I liked this image!


Wow it's been ages since I posted on my blog time flies at the moment which I will blog about later.
I have done quite a bit of crafting just not blogged it, so time to correct that.
I have used this image from Stamp on it  again
She is coloured with my Chameleon pens and
 my new Chameleon fine liners.
This is a very simple card with the images and sentiment printed directly onto the card.
I then matted it onto a piece of Kraft and pink card.
The verse is as below 

If you get up in the morning and have chest pains
Don't panic just look down to check 
you are not standing on your nipples
