Piano Card

I saw some similar type cards to this on Pinterest and thought they were really nice.I already had a template for making a 3D piano so used that to make this. It's something a bit different. I hand cut all the keys,but since then I've bought the Memory Box die of the piano keys so should be easier to make.The papers are BoBunny.

Aurora Wings

I only recently came across these wonderful digi stamps.I love fantasy art and these were just perfect. I really do love this first card which is unusual for me. It's not even a colour I'd usually use,so it's now my blog header.

I've always been a huge Sugar Nellie fan. I just love all the stamps they produce and even better they are a Scottish company.So it's a joy to support and buy from them. This image is called Kitty and is adorable. I've coloured her with Copic markers apart from her apron and hat bow,which I paper pieced. I used lovely spring colours.

Easter Basket

I saw a tutorial for making a little Easter Basket using the We R Memory Keeper's Envelope Punch Board HERE and decided to give it a go. I cut out my doilies using a die instead of pre made ones. The bow at the top of the handle was also made using the punch board.
