Netball themed Birthday Card


Hello friends :)

Just popping in to share the card I made for my eldest daughter's birthday last week, she turned 22 and is obsessed with playing and umpiring Netball, training or playing at least 4 time a week.
I found this gorgeous netball image at Polkadoodles called Netball/Basketball digital image
I cropped and flipped the image a couple of times, added the GA and GD to their bibs and added a bigger ball to achieve the look I was after.



It was a rushed card as I've been so busy lately, but the important thing is that she loved it and that's what matters :)

Thanks for stopping by

Ahhhh relaxing by the lake - Gone Fishing

Hi all :)

Andrea here with a card I made for my nephews 23rd birthday, I think he will love the idea of relaxing by the river with a fishing rod in hand.



I was colouring this image at a girlfriends house and packed up to go home without listing the markers I used sorry.

I love this stamp, the men in my life seem to love their trucks (Utes) and fishing so I'm sure it will be used many many times :)

Thanks for stopping by

Underwater with Seahorse.

Hello lovely people :)

It's been awhile since I've been here, I've been busy with Christmas and New Year and lazing around a lot before starting a new job on the 30th which I'm looking forward to. I have manage to colour up this 12" x 8" underwater scene from the Make it Crafty collection 'Under the Sea Scene' which I started on Christmas day and continued when the mood struck and finally finished yesterday :)



I didn't keep track of the colours I used for this peace sorry, there was so many and because I had stopped and started this project I simply lost track. 
I did however take lots of progressive photo's I can share (bore) with you. 

        

 


 

 




I plan on putting this piece into a frame once I find the right one :)

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you didn't get to bored.
