Jam Tart

Image is from LeAnn's World. I coloured her with copics then used a doily die to cut her out.I don't remember the name of this die but it was the first doily die I ever bought I then cut another in the purple then a smaller one I used a fiskars  punch to do the edges, threaded one side with ribbon adhered gingham paper to card then onto a white base card added pearls,stamped the sentiment
My youngest Grand daughter loves to eat her lunch outside on the grass and is having a picnic so this will be her next birthday card

Beccy's challenge this month was for this lovely blossom
Printed two blossoms one to colour and one to put underneath to hide the copics  that bled through the card

Printed both sides of the card as I folded the base in half and cut the front part in half, then half again, I then adhered part of the top of the blossom to the top half of the card with double sided tape and adhered the bottom part the same way. So the middle of the card is floating 

I then stamped the sentiment with green distress ink and because I am a bit of a messy crafter  I accidentally stamped some of the blossom I did think of redoing it but thought it looked ok  so I got my stamp with the writing on and stamped it with the green ink as well so was pleased with it in the end
Just shows you that you can always do something with a mistake

Richies Card

 Richie will be 5 but because of the corona virus he will not be starting school just yet, he was really excited about going to school, but life happens
He is right into Dinosaurs so that was my theme and I have made a tunnel book card so with a few folds, cut out frames, dinosaurs and backgrounds printed off the net and a few other embellishments I got to work was rather pleased with how it turned out

Cut out the card and did the folds then adhered picture to the center

Cut out three frames decorated two of them It's much easier to decorate them before putting them in the folds,used double sided tape on the frame and adhered to fold

Adhered two dinosaurs to base card, I had cut another two volcano's cut the tops off and adhered to the volcano, I then built the rest of the card adhering the frames like the first one Grass is a die cut

The last frame was adhered on the top  makes it a lot neater  the front edge didn’t look right with the grass so I added the fence I downloaded another picture that was the same as the base picture minus the steam adhered to card, cut another dinosaur and the picture of the little boy and adhered to card with foam,  The front of the card (which I forgot to take a photo of) had dinosaur backing paper and the picture of the dinosaur with the balloons
Richies present was dropped off to his house a Dinosaur naturally, he rang us later to say thanks, his card was loved just as much as his present and the card is going to sit on his drawers in his bedroom

Have 2 grandsons birthday’s tomorrow 7th April
This is Alex’s card

His mum sent me a picture of him busy building a ramp for his bike  and scooter so the card reflects this They live on a lifestyle block so there is plenty of space to let his imagination run wild I made it a tunnel card, the bottom of the card is meant to look like wood, changed the back BP the other didn't look right, the first circle is meant to be concrete the outer BP is a pic I down loaded  I copied and pasted 15 squares and joined them all up together, the dog in the background is the farm dog and the cat is his kitten tiger. Downloaded the bike, scooter and tools coloured with copics and fussy cut them printed off the tool box in red card and attached the tools. Positioned the ramp so the boy looks like he is building it. Cut a strip of measuring tape card, circled the 9 and  adhered the sentiment done on the computer to the orange wheels.
