Sarah Kay.................

Good evening again everyone, I think my crafty mind is working overtime lol.  
looking through my craft drawers I found several decoupage sheets that I have had for yonks and some lovely papers that I received from a swap on Docrafts, looking through them to see if I wanted to keep them I found the perfect pair, well in my mind they go together :).

6x6 white card
bottom layer is Core`dinations, next layer is terracotta card from stash
 and the top layer is one of the sheets that I got in the swap.
The image is from Studio Light and one of Sarah Kay, 
I decide not to decoupage this one
The flowers I made from an assortment of dies.
The sentiment was a freebie in a magazine.
I used the terracotta card to bring out the flower pot in the basket.

Happy Birthday......

Good morning everybody, Hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather today.

2 years ago my gorgeous granddaughter Ashley made me a Great grandmother with the birth of Isabella on the 8th May 2013.
This is the card that I made for her.

7x7 white card and all made in Serif.

 I am so very proud of Ashley as she went and still is going through some very bad days with having dialysis 3 times a week .
My Great granddaughter Isabella then:-
and how she is now
This was taken a few weeks ago when it was very cold.
