Georgia's Birthday

Waltzingmouse Stamps Half Pint Heroes & Heroines, Lawn Fawn Sally's ABCs, Quinn's 123s

A quick post to join in with Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge #18. I've used embossing, stickles, star gems, layers and textured card to add texture to my card.  The link is about to close so I'll have to finish this post later after I've completed the after school swimming!

This took a little longer than expected. Family is the most important thing to me and we miss them deeply when we lose them, but they remain forever in our hearts. For this reason I've not posted in June nor July and the following months have been light as well. Please excuse me.

Distressing Birthday Colours

Lawnscaping are exhibiting distress mania for their latest challenge and I had to join in! I've used lots of distress inks to create a cosmic background and diecut the birthday boy's name from it. The letters are stacked on lots of white diecut letters and some stars & stickles finish it off. I forgot to photograph the card before I left the house, so I've used the car as a makeshift studio and used some tips about blurring the background I read on Chelle's Creations and pinned onto my Digital Tutorials Board.

Iron Craft Season 2 is in full swing and I've been enjoying the interviews so thought I should take up the challenge. I've used Inspiration 3: Difficult Colours from Sarah. Purple came out top of the list followed by green. Peacock Feathers may not be a kelly green and it is one of my favourite colours, so I hope it still counts. When I started to think of purple I kept seeing all the constellation photos tweeted by NASA and want to recreate some sort of nebulous space for  my first birthday star (also known as my nephew!)

Allsorts Challenge Blog is celebrating their 5th birthday with a Happy Birthday Challenge! Laurence is only one, so we'll have to multiply the birthday wishes for Allsorts!
