Posts Tagged ‘home made cards’

As I mentioned in my previous post, I discovered today that there was a new Kristina Kwerner Colour Challenge…yey!  I love the colours but dont have any of the inks and very little of the papers, so I had to improvise. 


 
Here is my design.

I really have to start going to bed early, this is my third night in a row I’ve been up to almost 12.

Thanks,

Paula.

Well we have had lots of babies being born and I haven’t had enough baby cards so over the last few days I have had a card making marathon with my sister, Susannah.  Luckily she loves me lots and let me use all her stuff because I was staying over at her place and didn’t bring any of card making supplies, I now owe her some new papers which I will order soon.  Here are my cards, you can see I was having a great time using her embossing tool, ribbon and my other sister, Kristy’s stamp set.

I’m now ready for lots of babies to be born, especially my sister Susannah’s, due just after a week from now.

I love babies, as I’ve mentioned in other posts I have my two beautiful boys who are no longer babies but the 3 year old is still very cute and my 5 year old is looking more mature every day.  Anyway I love babies because they remind us of the miracle of life, and after loosing my mum almost two years ago now I can easily focus on the sadness that this brings to me.  Babies remind me that there is a beginning and and ending to every life, and even though I really miss my mum, she got to experience being a baby, a daughter, a teenager, an adult, marriage, her own babies and watching them grow into adults and her own grand children.  I promise to remind myself of this mum, I remember you often and sometimes the memories make me laugh… and cry.  You loved babies mum, and you loved making cards….I dedicate these cards to you.

Love Paula….yes I’m crying now, but only because I love you so much.

Sorry for getting a bit emotional, hope you like my cards.

Ok, this is going to read like gibberish as it is 12:30am but here is my entry to the Kwerner Colour Challenge.

I’ve used river rock paper and stamped the flowers in river rock, and stamped the boho and Whimsy Graden butterfly stamp using wild wasabi and then punched a purely pomegranate circle to go behind the boho stamp and a regal rose scallop behind that.  I used my sisters stamp cherish, which is also from the Stampin Up collection, but I’m not sure which stamp set. Finished it off with a bit of sparkle here and there.

        

This is my first challenege, and I’m happy with it but I did spend all night on just one card….

Paula.
