Birth Congratualtions

A Couple who are friends with my Daughter and her Partner are due to have their baby soon. I remembered a Moses basket in a box that I last made years ago. I found the pattern, no problem there, but could I find the instruction? Could I Heck! Now what to do????
In steps a blog friend of mine. I first "met" Jan (Blog here) when we were both on a design team together back in the day. I still follow her blog and I remembered that she had posted the very same Moses Basket a few times along the way. Well, she very kindly came to my rescue and sent me a copy of the written instructions so I could complete my project. Very kind Jan, Thank You!
We know the boy is a boy, so I can get this made ahead of time. This is the result.

(sorry about the shine from the acetate).

Hope you like!


Quite a few birthdays around here this time of year!

My Daughter Jenny is first in this post. Her main present was a new camera, so I thought a camera shaped card might go down well.
Created from an online image and decoupaged for dimension with hand made flowers.

Next was Granny. As spring has sprung and she has been poorly lately I decided to bring spring indoors for her.
Digistamps from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with spectrum noir pens.

My Son and I share a Birthday. Twenty years ago he was my Birthday Pressie, where has that time gone!

Our birthday was last week, so it is safe to share the cards I made for him now. He is a Qualified Personal Trainer and Lifeguard.....hence my inspiration...

I found the lifeguard image in a set online from The Paper Shelter. All the other images were from free online search items. The card itself was cut using my Grand Calibur and the Tattered Lace Shutter Card Die. By far the easiest way to make one of this shape.

My Daughter and her partner bought Dan a Survival day experience, and she wanted a card that would fit in with that theme. I opted for this...

I created a cut file for this using my Cameo from an image I found online. It is paper pieced (31 pieces to colour and jig saw together).
