Happy 1st Birthday Amelia Danni

Well, we started the packing at the weekend.  Most of the garage is now in boxes.  I began packing up my craft room.  I started with great intentions, sorting out what could be stored in mams garage and what I couldn't live without........ bet you can guess which pile is enormous lol.  After 20 minutes of that I was itching to play with all the forgotten stash I had discovered. 

This easel card is for my pals little granddaughter who will be one next week.  Another teal and buttercup colour combo.  Sorry about loads of pics with this post, but I just love my new camera.....

 The image is LOTV, papers are from a long lost stash I found at the bottom of the cupboard as are the flowers.

I gave the tutu, headband and ballet shoes the glamour dust treatment.  Image is coloured with Promarkers.


 The ribbons are a pale blue layered onto a pale yellow, but duh!! it makes the blue one look green lol.  The sentiment is LOTV, circles are cut out with my Cricut and all matts are inked with Agean Blue Chalk Ink (messy moment!!).  The charm is another long lost find.......

The no. 1 is cut with my Cricut (Storybook cart), normal and shadow layer, blinged with some gems from my stash.

I finished it off by making a box with my new toy - the new boards for my Ultimate Pro which was a POTD on C&C last week........ fab.  (I forgot to photograph that bit I'm afraid).

Much more enjoyable than packing....... 

Incase anyone is wondering, I've decided my essentials are my Promarkers, unmounted and clear stamps, Ultimate Pro, all my tools, my Cricut, all my card, all my papers, gems, pearls, ribbons ....... hmmmm, I'm starting to see a flaw in this essentials list.

Oh well.

I have more cards to post, I hope to get them on tomorrow.

Until then, take care, Nicola
