Baby Boy - Friday 9th November

Hello Friends!

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your comments...and of course following me! I still have that candy to give away when I get to 50, but at the moment, seem to be stuck at 32! Lol....I'm not sponsored or anything like that, so have been buying bits and pieces as I go along and am itching to send it to one of you! So please tell your friends!

Today's card is another of my recent commissions, made using an LOTV stamp...

This is an 8x8 card, the usual size for my commissioned cards: I matted and layered alternating blue and white, finishing with polka dot coredinations card, which I sanded back to raise the dots.

I stamped the cute little bear with memento ink and coloured with Promarkers, then I die cut with Spellbinders Labels One Small and softened the edges with Broken China  and Peacock Feathers distress ink.

The bunting I made myself using a plain bunting digital stamp and typing the letters over the top, then I inked all over with the same mix of inks, finishing off with bakers twine and little punched stars. Again with the  sentiment, it was stamped with the LOTV stamp from the same set and cut into the flag shape by hand, then distressed. I finished off with paper flowers from stash and little polka dot buttons.

Hope you like and thanks for stopping by...over the weekend I will probably be uploading a new Design Team card for Emergency Crafters and Sunday, I have a special Remembrance Sunday card coming up..but I have been working on the Dreamweaver tutorial I promised and that will be posted next week.

Thanks and have a great crafting day,
Carole X
