Ewe will be missed

Hello all, I still can't believe it's November, I really must make a start on Christmas cards!
Today I have a card to share that I made a while back for a friend whose Daughters support assistant was leaving for pastures new.
The stamp set is MFT Ewe Are The Best, coloured with Spectrum Noirs, papers are MFT Homespun Gingham and the cardstock is from my stash. Just a quick post as I am in the process of having a sort out in my craft room, which is proving to take longer than I anticipated!
Hopefully I will have some pics to share tomorrow! Anyway, enough waffle, here's my card!

Good evening, hope you all had a Happy Halloween. I thought I would make a card without any black, orange or green in sight!
This card was inspired by this weeks challenge over at casology, where the cue word is 'Welcome'.
The perfect opportunity to make a new baby card for a colleague at work who is due to go on maternity leave in a couple of weeks.
The stamps are Clearly Besotted and MFT, inked with Dew Drop inks, the dies are Marianne Design and the cardstock is from my stash, here's my card, thanks for stopping by!

Good evening, yes I'm still around, turns out Granchildren play havoc with crafting, I just don't seem to have had a spare minute since our gorgeous Grandson was born 4 months ago ! However I have told myself I need to make time as my attic full of crafty goodies is getting seriously neglected, so hopefully this is the first post of many.
Today's card is made using the sweet colours over at this weeks Color Throwdown challenge, teamed with the sketch from CAS(e) this sketch.
I have finally got to use my fab new Sue Wilson dies and stamps, you will be seeing a lot more of this talented ladies goodies on my makes as I had a bit of a shopping spree over at Honeypot Crafts in Sheffield. The inks are Versa Color, embossing folder is Crafters companion and the cardstock is from my stash, here's my card, hope you like it!
(Also a sneaky pic of gorgeous Freddy )
