DigiStamp Boutique Baby Animals Birthday Cards

Hi everyone.  Hope you are having a good week.  We've made to Wednesday...I had Monday off work to recover from all of that overtime at the weekend but still feeling a little bit tired..luckily I'm having a couple of days away this weekend, courtesy of St Valentine so hopefully will get some time to relax.

Just a couple of cards today using two of the images from the DigiStamp Boutique Baby Animals digital stamp set.  I made these cards a while ago for my niece Holly and Martyn's niece Megan who are the same age and were even born one day after each other but never got round to featuring them on the blog,

For these cards I have used:
The Lion and Giraffe from the Baby Animals digital stamp set by DigiStamp Boutique coloured with copics.
All other products from my stash.

Thanks for popping by and I'll see you Saturday with a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar...x

Good morning all.  Hope you are having a good day.  Todays post is a birthday card I made for my OH using a number of products from My Favorite Things.

The background was stamped using Steel Blue Hybrid ink and the 'Paw Print' background stamp both from My Favorite Things.

February Crafty Calendar Challenge Card - Two or More Layers with Dr Digi

 Good afternoon, I hope you are well today. 
I've had a little bit of a stressful January, three weeks ago my assistant at Brownies announced she was leaving at the end of January and being unable to find a replacement at short notice I had no choice but to close the unit.  It was a bit upsetting having to close but it takes a lot of time and commitment to run it and I think it is time for a change.  After volunteering for 27 years there was a lot of sorting out to be done and a major declutter has taken place.

But we are now in February, a new month and time for a new challenge over at

Our challenge for this month is
on your projects

For my card I have used:
Quackers from Dr Digi's House of Stamps coloured with copics and cut with my Scan n cut.
Polka Dot paper is from the Wild Rose Studio 'Vintage Rose' paper pack and the heart paper is 'Chocolate Candy Hearts' by Scrappy Cat.
Sentiment is from the My Favorite Things 'Tweet On You' stamp set. 

We are sponsored for this challenge by:

Pop over to Crafty Calendar and share with us your 'Two or more layers' projects and check out the gorgeous DT creations.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon x
