The Girl with the Flowers in her hair

Good Morning, my lovely blog chums.....I do hope that you are enjoying the weekend, its certainly been a little cooler out.  I live at the top of a hill, overlooking the River Medway, and we always get something of a breeze, whipping up the hill.....during the night it seems to be really blowy out there! 

Today's card features the second of the images that were my prize from Star Jam Lines - there is a link to there store on yesterday's post.......
Kept the design simple, to fit the sketch, below.  This super-cute Mother and Baby digi, is coloured with promarkers, and cut out with a faux stitched square die. I used a couple of papers from my snippets box, two sweet little buttons, and the baby word die, is a old Sizzix thinlets die, that i've had for ages........oh, and on that subject, when I dropped my Mum's groceries to her this week, I snuck upstairs to see if she still had this lil beaut in her back bedroom, and if it still worked.......

the answer to both was YES! This was my Sizzix machine - one of the old ones, that weighs an absolute tonne to move around, and the cutting plate wasn't that large, so it eventually got upgraded to a Big Shot.....but, there was something quite lovely about pulling the handle up and down and shimmying the plate along to cut. I think I got this for Christmas 2006 - can't believe how long i've been cardmaking!!!

Anyway, I would like to enter these challenges:

  3. A delightful card Lisa, so beautiful. I still have the red Sissix too, I only bought it to have squares that were squares! I have one bigz square die and that's it. BUT, as you say the lifting of the handle was satisfying.
    Take care
