Back to school Molly

Good morning all! It's back to school for my little darlings on Monday and wooooo hoooooo is all I can say lol. With several challenges going with the back to school theme I thought I'd create something a little different. My girls school sells "healthy tuck" at morning playtime so the kids can buy a price of fruit. I decided to decorate their little brown money envelopes for a little surprise for Monday. I've used the lovely Molly bloom stamp coloured in with my promarkers, I've backed the image with torn,embossed,sanded and inked coredinations card and the buntin has been made the same way and then stamped punched letters glued on to spell "tuck".

Hope you like and thanks for visiting me xx cara xx

Tags, tags, birthday tags!

Today my eldest baby is a big eight! I can't believe how quickly the time has passed!

We've had a lovely day together, me Phoebe and Paige went girly shopping and for "posh lunch" we then went cake shopping - yum.

I'd like to share with you the tags I made to go with phoebe's birthday card (see previous post) I made 3 tags, 2 off which were simply cut using a marianne die and decorated with flowers from WOC and stickles, the third largest was cut using a spellbinders die, this was then decorated with WOC and stickles as before, I then added a wooden #8 which j painted with gesso then pink distress stickles and diamond stickles, finally I added a brooch back to the reverse so that when the present had been unwrapped she had a lovely birthday girl badge to wear (and here she is modelling it)
Right I'm off for more birthday cake.
Thanks for visiting xx cara xx

Day dreaming

Hello sorry it's been a while since I posted I've not been too well.

Today I'd like to share a card which I have made for my daughters birthday on Tuesday.

The super-cute image is from the Elizabeth bell peekers (1) collection,the delish flowers are from my very first order at WOC and the papers are from my stash. I've edged the papers with a snow writer pen I found at The Range and u sprinkled glitter into it before it dried. The lace and ribbon are also from my stash.
I hope you like my card and I greatly appreciate any comments. Thanks for looking xx cara xx

Just magnolia challenge

Hi, I have another card to share (wow two in two days get me!!!!)
This is a large card so I'm not too keen on the finished result - poor magnolia looks tiny!

I uses my magnolia stamp coloured with my beloved pro markers, the dies are marianne creatables and the dp is from a pad called "love letters" by first edition, the flowers are from my rather small stash.
I'd like to enter this into the just magnolia challenge "anything goes" http://justmagnolia.blogspot.com/2011/08/week-118-simon-says-stamp-special.html
