I have been asked to make some baby cards that are not pink or blue. I didn't realise how few appropriate embellishments I had in my stash collection - all the cute little things I had for babies were "pink or blue".
So without realising it I had gained a challenge.
I decided on pale yellow and produced the following:
As always photographing was not easy but I think I have just about got away with it. I knew when I took the photo last night that it wasn't going to be brilliant, and secretly hoped I might get another shot in this morning .. .. .. .. but no hope. It is lashing it down with rain here this morning and as dull as you can imagine.
My card used:
Images - Washing line - from "Forever Friends"
Butterflies - from the Penny Black "Critter Party"
Sentiment - Elzybells
Papers - Background paper - Funky Fairy "Gorjuss Ginghams"
Paper piecing - Free Designer Paper Collection from Simply Cards & Papercraft
Brads, flower, thread and ribbon from the stash box
It may not show up very well on the photograph but I have stitched a washing line for the clothes with some white and metallic thread.
I love this washing line stamp. I can see me doing this card again in different colour variations etc. I sadly really enjoyed cutting the clothes out and sticking them on the line - it reminded me of the happy days when my boys were "dinky". I used to love filling the washing line with their little clothes and watching them blowing in the wind. (I was sad even in those days).
Multiple hearts on this card - babies deserve lots of them!!
Have a great day everyone. I hope your weather is better than what I have here. I wouldn't get baby washing dry here today!!!
Love Jules xx
- A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I share my passion for making hand made greeting cards. So - why "Always with a Heart"? Well this is for two reasons. Firstly, it is because every card I produce carries a heart on it somewhere. This can be big and bold or small and almost hidden - the fun sometimes is just trying to find it! Secondly it is because I put my heart into everything I produce. I hope that any visitors enjoy seeing what I post. If you drop by then please leave me a comment so that I know you called. It would be nice to know that you have found my heart in what I do.
