It's a Girl !!!



My Son and Daughter-in law had their second daughter last Monday and all are doing well. How lucky am I to have the two most fabulous and gorgeous Grand- daughters. Now you know why I haven't had the time to post.

Here are 2 cards that I recently taught in my class. Hope you like them.
In the first card , I used the FUNKY POTTED FLOWERS from Stamping Bella http://www.stampingbella.com/.

I used mineral spirits and Lyra coloured pencils to colour the image and I just love this patterned paper from Little Yellow Bicycle (roses) . I embellished the card with ribbon and Bon Bonz also from Stamping Bella.

These Bon Bonz are mirror backed and are so sparkly, they

really pop the image. Of course I used some glittah here and there.

I used the Stamin Up word slot punch for the sentiment.

Second card is using SLOUCHY PURSE ( one of my favorite purse image )

by Stamping Bella. I used Lyra coloured pencils and mineral spirits.

The patterned paper is S.E.I and I used the front and back of the paper, don't you love the pattern and colours. For the embellishments I just had to use these great dots also from Stamping Bella. You can't really see in the picture but the dots are all glittery and I used the small size. They come in the most yummy colours, it's hard not to want to have all of them.

That's it for now and I will try to post again in a few days. Have a great week everyone. Please leave a comment or email me at www.nmanel@rogers.com

Congratulations, Gramma Nicky! Glad to hear everyone is doing well - hope you have lots of cuddly moments with both your granddaughters this summer. The cards are lovely once again - I really liked the paper you used with the funky flower image, and the purse card was clean and classy as usual. Great job!
