An apology and a new card to show you....

Hiya peeps

An apology to you all

I am so sorry, to say that, I made a big mistake with my last post.
The card I spoke & showed you pictures of to do with my DT
card for Not Just Cards Challenge Blog was the wrong one.

I only realised the mistake late last night and that the card I
should be promoting is:

A commission card that I made for a woman who my daughter goes to
visit. It was a birthday card for one of her daughters who loves to sail
and her favourite colour is blue.  The mum knows what questions I will ask
so I   can make the card more personalised for the recipient as this is not the first order that she has asked me to make., and it wont be the last.

I made a large square piece of embossing ages ago using a folder showing
loads of 'Happy Birthdays' across it and as I love that same colour of blue I enjoyed working with it. I decided to make the card as a landscape view as I think it gives me more room to place the items that need to use. 

The embossing folder is from Crafters Companion, the sentiment was
cut using a Tonic Studios die (I have many of their cutting dies). The
card is a ready made folded card and the white glitter card are from the Hobbycraft website. The boat was cut using a die from Marianne Designs
(available from lots of craft websites). The cotton lace is from a company called, where as the rest of the items are from my own stock.

Its DT time again.....

Hiya peeps

Its the start of our new challenge over at

As always, all of our challenges are Anything Goes
so we would like you to join us, we love to see all..

We will endeavour to visit all of your projects and
leave a comment but please bear with us., after all we are are only human.

My project this week is a new baby card.
A friends newest son (of 3 now), named
Carter Ryan! Hes a little cutie pie of a thing
and deserved the Klik Klack Zak lobster that I bought
him (on sale at

I first coloured an image from Di's Digi's  called
Ted's Train which, unfortunately, is no longer available.
I printed it out onto linen effect white cardstock
(as thats all I had in at the time) and coloured it with
Castle Art pencil crayons. The linen effect gives the fur
effect. I then added Liquid Glass to various parts which,
as many of you already know, I love! It gives such a smooth
clear gloss finish just like glass and is as hard as resin when dry.
Its perfect for the eyes, beaks (of birds), rain drops etc.
I used it on the rim of the hat Ted is wearing, his eyes and some
parts of the train, especially the wheels.
I made the card size by using 2 x A4 pieces of white
linen effect cardstock, cut, folded and stuck together to
give me the large 9.5 in x 8.5 in card I wanted. I stuck the
2 pieces of backing papers that I wanted to use on the back, added the 3 ribbons/lace I wanted to use (overlapping when necessary).
After die cutting the sentiment "Welcome to the World"
I mounted the coloured digi on to an oval cut in yellow and stuck
that on to the bottom part of the card. The end touch was using
Liquid Pearls in White Opal to form the 3 "pearls" near the edge
of the card & then a smaller pearl to act as the start button
on the train hand controller. The insert was fun to find the
elements that I wanted to use. I found what I was looking for
on an old external hard drive ive got, I combined two images to form the right picture that I needed, along with the perfect verse that I printed out in. Both of the inserts were printed onto high quality
pearlescent paper that gives such a lovely finish to the whole card.

I wish to enter this card into the following challenges:
