Welcome Baby Grandson Shaker Card

I was inspired by the Just Add Ink #343 Blog Hop Pop-Up & Interactive card challenge to create a cute baby card for a dear friend who has just become a first time grandmother to a beautiful grandson. I do just love being able to create special cards for special people in my life. Here’s what I created with a glossy accents dimensional rocking horse as a centrepiece.

Cozy Smooches

I was inspired to create a card for the Paper Smooches January 2017 Challenge, with the theme of “Cozy”. Funnily enough, cozy warm is not how I want to feel in the height of a Queensland summer, however “cozy together” seemed to be a cooler way to go.

Here’s what I created using Paper Smooches Chubby Chums snuggling up to a shaker nest frame.
