So proud...

I made this card this morning; it is for my son, 6, who got his School Report for 2010-2011 on Friday. He did excellent in ALL subjects and we are extremely proud of him. Since he has been able to talk he has always expressed an interest in becoming a doctor when he grows up, so I thought the Meljen's image was just perfect for the card. Also, it is mainly in purple, his favourite colour, so I hope he likes it.
By the way, I got the Doctor Bear digital image as part of my prize for the A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge (isn't he cute??!). Nedless to say, I was over the moon to win it and to be able to choose 5 amazing digis from Whimsy Stamps. Thanks!
Onto some challenges:
Pink Gem - sketch
Charisma Cardz - Boy oh boy
Polka Doodles - Male theme + button + circle
Crafts your Days away - Special Man
Crafty Calendar - Teddy bears

Bon Voyage!

Relatives of ours are emmigrating to France in a couple of weeks; the recession hit them badly and they have decided to start afresh where at least the sun shines :-) Who blames them??!
I made this card using my new 8x8" Kraft cardstock, so it is a rather large card! Vintage Travel papers; both acrylic and digital stamps were used; I paper pieced the suitcases with old newspaper and all edges are distressed with Tim Holtz inks.
Onto some challenges:
Pear Tree Designs - Stamped images (Eiffel Tower, Letter)
Craft Us Crazy - Something new (my new 8x8" kraft cards)
Crafts and Me - Anything goes + kraft
A Spoon full of Sugar - Anything goes
Truly Scrumptious - Anything goes
Crafty Catz - Anything goes
Have a nice weekend!

I can't believe it is 10th May already!! It's been fairly busy these last few weeks and therefore I have not been very active around Blogworld. So apologies for the lack of posting or even commenting on other people's blogs. Busy why? Well, it's Confirmation and Communion times around this part of the world, and I have been commissioned to make quite a few number of cards - 25 so far! Phew!!
So this is an extremely quick post 'cos I need to finish a couple of cards more for tonight; I leave you with a small collage of my work.
Take care xx
