Can't believe the last blog was dated 9th jun. went off on holidays to Dubrovnik the next day
seems a life time away well Summer was brilliant can't complain about the weather can we?
Have been trundling along with the card making, got a new justz cutz die cutting machine and I love it
read loads of bad reviews but I don't seem to be having any trouble certainly prefer it to the joycraft one which broke on me, never liked it anyway found it to be too much hassle .
 Have just finished an order for 5 new baby girl cards for the same baby all "special" and in boxes. Really had to get my thinking cap on as I had to do 5 special cards for this baby's sister when she was born and also for her first birthday!!!

box for baby card love the background misty ethereal  feel
 found it on google images looking up victorian baby images ,
which is where I found this gorgeous baby.

crafts you print kit took ages as it was the very first ime I ever did one of these type cards
but not a bad result above closed card and below card opened very 3 D
fits lovely onto an 8x8 box

this is another crafts u print images
but put acetate on the front and put some of the layers of decoupage on the acetate

this was card no 5 from grandad
and is in it's box with lovely red and white tissue
I thought red and white was very unusual for a baby card
and I fell in love with this image again free image on google images 

front of box card
card was made by cutting an 8x8 card in half
 and making a new spine from a 3 inch strip of card and
 attaching to both front and back of 8x8

made up concertina frame and decorated with lace
