Bump Buddies

Hi All,

Well I have my first card of 2012, One of my best friends is expecting, she is exactly 3 months behind me, so we will be bump buddies!!! I have bought her a mum to be spa kit and have made this card for her.

I have used a load of scrap paper, for the background, I have colour tinted it with " Distress ink - tumbled glass" and the fabulous "whiff of joy" images which I have coloured with copics.

I apologise for the photo, its a dark snowy day, and with no decent light I was struggling to take a good photo, I have tried to lighten it up on the computer, however it is still a little blurry ...sorry about that!

This is my entry for:

Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
Alphabet Challenge - Xtra special occasion

  5. Hello Juls,

    Happy New Year to you!

    What an exciting year you have ahead of you!

    Love your beautiful card especially the layers that have all been so lovingly stitched on!

    Had a quick visit over your other work and am now in love with your stunning pink corset card! The delicate shimmery stitches and the tiny beads are all so beautiful!
