Spring has Sprung

Hello Everyone.

I just love making these flowers, they are so easy to make and very effective.
I cut them in white card stock and sponge them with the ink colours I like and made a stem for them.

Items Used:

Sue Wilson - Scandinavian Collection - Background
Dee's Distinctively Dies - Secret Garden Flower 2
Dee's Distinctively - Floral Leaf 4
Inside the card I used the same Background Die to give it a little flair.  
Sentiment on a Spellbinders - Swallow Tail Tags
The hearts inside are from - Memory Box - Beloved Hearts

Enjoy your crafting no matter what the season.

Baby Expectations

I do like the Marianne design Die I've used here.
One of the few times the mother to be has not found out what she is having.
I think I like the surprise on the day but then it is more practical to know before hand.

Biker Boy

Other ways you may use the 
Sizzix - Step Ups - Happy Birthday
There are many ways you can use this die and it saves all the fiddling 
with measurements as well.  
Unfortunately I found my digi already printed out from years ago
and I don't have any info about it.

Enjoy your card making, Christmas is on it's way.  
I guess we'll have to start making Christmas Cards soon.

Toy Box

I made this card for a dear cousin's daughter having her first baby through IVF

How amazing that we have so many options open to childless couples these days.

I know first hand the desire to have children and the difficulties I had.
Not as bad as some I know but the hope and the disappointments are enough
to bear without all the rest some endure.
The good Lord eventually blessed us with three wonderful children even without
any knowledge until years later that my issues were from Endometriosis.

To all those ladies waiting and hoping my heart goes out to you.
I had a neighbour who finally had a baby after three continents and eleven IVF's.
It happened after a lady prayed over her so without the belief she still calls her boy a miracle.
My the Lord bless you with your greatest desires.

Dinosaurs are fun

Hi Crafting Friends (the few I have)

My husband drives a school bus for special needs children and each bus is given an animal.  
Needless to say his bus is the Dinosaur.
I'm not sure if it's relating to the person driving it or not.
