Tiny Blessings

Hi everyone

How has your week been so far?  Ours hasn't been too bad, other than the fact that Ian and Natasha have both been ill so I've had to be the new Florence Nightingale!!  Talk about us all taking it in turns, if it's not one of us ill it's another!    I think maybe our Happy New Year is going to start in February!!

I love that background paper I used behind the card when I photographed it.  It has little birds on, but I couldn't resist leaving the little flower showing, it's so cute.  I'd originally bought the sheet with the intention of scrapbooking.  Hmmm, might need to add that to my to do list!

For today's card (above) I wanted to share a card I made for the 2S4U challenge #44 by Laura.  I have been looking at their sketches over the past couple of weeks but never quite get around to making anything for them.  I was determined this week to join in again.

I needed to make a new baby card for proud grandparents and the 2S4U sketch worked really well for the idea I had in mind.   I've not actually done one before so wasn't quite sure what wording to go for.  While rummaging through my studio I came across the little cutter, 'tiny blessings' which I thought summed it up really well.

I also made another card, CASED on this one by Kristina Werner.  I thought it was a fab design.  I wanted my card to look really girly; this particular one was for my friend who's just had a little girl called Erin.  Isn't that a pretty name? 

I'm shattered tonight so will just leave you with the pictures of the cards.  If you would like the 'recipes' just give me a shout!   Enjoy the rest of your day.   I have a few to share with you over the next few days, I've been busy ;o)


  1. Two gorgeous cards Ruby that first one is so bright and cheerful the second so soft and delicate I love them both.
