I wanna be a Southern Girl's Kid...


Still mega busy here, all sorts of things going on, but I'll save that for another day :-D  Anyway, it's time for a new challenge over at Southern Girls, and this fortnight the challenge is a project for or about Children

Perfect timing, as it was my niece's 2nd birthday today... she's such a cutie, and has my two boys wrapped round her little finger

I was doing well making this card, and had every intention of adding a bit of glossy accents and sparkle here and there, but then HB decided that we were going round their house yesterday, rather than today and the glues and sparkle wouldn't have dried, so I had to assemble it as it was, and take some photo's quick... that'll teach me to be a last minute Annie!!

I used the adorable Billy is Two from LCI - this image is suitable for a boy or a girl, just change your colour scheme!  Or if you want more girly then there is an option of flowers instead of buttons.   I popped some actual buttons on the card to make up for the lack of glitter!  Luckily I had already stitched all of my panels together with a pale pink machine embroidery thread, before HB started hurrying me along!

The paper is some MME that has been in my stash like forever, and the ribbon is also from LCI, I love my little Making Memories ribbon punch set, it makes a change to running the ribbon behind the image :-D

That's it from me today, thanks for stopping by

Sue xx
