Cameo Moustache card

Todays card has been made in several coloured backgrounds but Im just showing you this one. I dont want it to get boring. LOL
I cut the moustaches on Cleo Cameo. There are 4 to this cutting file but the 4th one is very fine and Im terrible with glue and anything sticky on small items. So left it at 3 and used a Kanban sentiment to finish it off. The card blank is 7x5 inches.
Thank you for stopping by today.

8x8 Girly cards Prima Dolls


Todays two cards are using my new Prima Mixed Media Doll stamps. I saw these in Simply Cards and Papercrafts, when it popped through my letterbox last week. when the stamps arrived I was amazed at how big they are. So I made 8x8 cards, one for my daughters Birthday next week and on for our DIL Birthday in Sept. As this also pops up in Facebook they will probably see them and can enjoy them for a while before getting them, LOL.
Backing papers are Pink Petticoat.
The Paisley paper if from a Pad. As is the dresses, which I paper pieced.
The Tulle I ordered from China, at £2.49 for a roll, as it was so cheap I ordered 5 colours and Im going to order other colours soon.
Prima flowers.
Sentiment, computer generated, Scriptina.
Coloured with Copics. (I need to work on my hair colourings !)
Right back to my crafty space, as I have a Sympathy card to make for an order.
Thanks for looking.

Tom and Tilly Anniversary Card

Todays card is using a Mo Manning digi download called Tom and Tilly. I was asked to make an Anniversary card, so I thought this would make a great card. I have used an 8x8 card blank. the backing paper is Stampin Up. Coloured with Copics. I used my Spellbinders Grand Circle Nesties and flowers from Wild Orchid. The pins were made by my dear friend Debra. I have a small stash of them but hate to use them, they are so pretty.
So thank you for dropping by and looking.
See you soon with some more Cameo cards.

Playing with my Cameo

My grandson Finn  who is 4, will be 5 in September and he loves football. I was lucky enough to go and see him learning and playing today. He is so good that he is in the group of 6 year olds. He runs rings around them too. :)  I bought the football file from Silhouette America and enlarged it to fit an 8x8 card. The leters and number are just computer generated, cut and then I right clicked and used the offset to make the background for them.
I am loving this machine! Lots to learn yet though.
Anyway, thanks for looking.
