Maternity Card


Hello, gosh there are some busy blogs I have looked at so many I have hardly had time to craft, I am so glad I follow you though, your all very inspiring and I love to look at your work. I have made a card for a friend at church who is pregnant with what will be her seventh child! (I know a lot of children) however, she is a fantastic mother and she has the most beautiful children, and she looks just too fantastic it's so not fair! She doesn't come on here so she will not see this card until I give it to her. I thought I may as well enter it for a few chalenges too. SSIC challenge is clean & simple, as there are no embellies etc I thought I had kept it pretty clean & simple although it was anything but simple to make lol. Sketch Saturday it as usual a fabby sketch. Lots to do (LTD) another new challenge, their theme is Spring I think this card is very Spring new baby's and all the flowers on the swing And Just Us Girls (JUG) a new challenge to me, is a colour combo of brown, green, yellow & blue. as always there are some great DT examples for inspiration so do have a look round these challenges.


Now as I said this was not a simple card to make, and this is not my first attempt lol. I used three stamps to make this image and I had to mask all the images to ink the back ground too! as WOJ are not clear it can be kinda difficult to line the swing up some times and when you get all the lining up right you have to be very cearful when masking cutting round each and every leaf so I could get the back ground just right. Saying that I am very happy with the out come and I am sure Clair will love this card. I thank you to every one for their lovely comments and constant support, and a wonderful welcome to my new followers I have been round to all your blogs and you are a teriffic bunch and very talented and a couple are so new to blog land. I am happy that you have decided to follow me, and as I have said on your blogs the people I have come across are wonderful and always happy to help if you need any. Enjoy whats left of the day. Love Dawn xx

Items Used:- Stamps WOJ, Card stock, inks & DP Stampin'Up! (SU) coloured with copics, SU punch & Nestiabilites die cut.

What a beautiful card - I love that image - it's one area of life that I wouldn't be able to create a card for without some real thought and searching through my sentis...
