My daughter who was 3 in January also made a card for her nursery teachers which is below with Amelia I think hehe. Got these stamps and can't even remember the names (I am like a zombie at the moment).

Anyway as usual a bit long winded for what it really is. My poor little one has what my son had and she doesn't know what to do with herself she has been whinging all day and only drank one bottle of milk today and no juice or water at all. I felt so sorry for her she just kept saying Mummy Mummy then would try and headbutt me. Worry worry worry...
Rant over tehe, Andrea x

I drew this little girl from the Corspe Bride, coloured her with copics and promarkers and you can't see but glittered her up with the orange peel stickles and added some pewter liquid pearls for her buttons on her dress. She is for the Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #7 Creepy Birthday to You.
I wrote have a bone-afide good time and used tattered rose over it (I know looks pretty bad but I am still trying to get used to distressing. The bone behind the girl was a glitter sheet that I sprayed with the slate glimmer mist and I added a little bonafide tag to the side. The flowers are prima (I think, they came in a lovely jar) and a wild orchid flower in the middle.
A bow tied at the bottom and a cat charm. Shockingly bad entry, but alas again my little ones have picked up another viral infection my poor 5 year old is covered from head to toe in a rash and he couldn't swallow. He didn't eat anything from friday afternoon until late this morning.
Anyway now that the excuses are over about how poor my cardmaking skills are hehe I am being attacked by my one year old who is needing some attention.

I really love the Haunted Design House, their challenges are always really cool. Anyway my husband and I have watched series one and two of True Blood so I thought this was the challenge if any to try. I love horror particularly vamps, zombies etc.
Anyway I got this stamp, marie antoinette, kraftin kimmie, last week and thought it would make a good Queen Sophie-Ann from olden days and that she was probably playing Yahtzee then before it got commercialised hehe (as if this is real). My hubby said only I would choose such an obscure character tehe.
The flower again was made from paper flowers from poundland and inked first with tim holtz tattered rose then coloured with two pink promarkers and one red copic marker. The middle is a brad from one of those little packs I think they are dovecraft. I added a crown charm dropping from the cameo with red wire. The paper is coordinations black cauldron or something. I sqashed then sanded then distressed the edges and made a bit for the side with the martha stewart doily punch then folded it and sanded.
The Yahtzee I printed then squashed and distressed with I think tea dye and tattered rose tim holtz distress inks. (All my stuff gets put away in the day as the kids would probably choke on something so I have the worst memory at the moment so that is why it sounds like I am unsure). I put Sophie-Ann on the name slot. I also printed yahtzee using free fonts website, then put what is supposed to be little drops of blood, red flat backed pearls.
I used liquid pearls on her hair and stuck down the flat backed pearls with it. I printed out a super mini yahtzee sheet and placed it where the letter goes on the stamp. I coloured her with a mixture of promarkers and copics and added some vampire teeth.
Anyway I think I have bored you long enough.

I thought since I entered the burtonesque challenge that I would try another one. I love the Whiff of Joy stamps they are so sweet. I always wondered what people were on about when they mentioned a sketch they had followed and now I know.
I used the stamp sitting Willow (I think that is what she is called). I decided not to colour her as I thought she stood out better. The cardstock used is from Nana's Nursery baby girl stack, I used a purple inkpad for the edges then used my scissors to fray the edges. The flowers are from Wild Orchid and the lace is from ebay. I just love when I see the distressed stuff that people do but am not really very good at it myself but will persevere.
Anyway am really enjoying entering these challenges although my house is suffering somewhat haha the kids toys are still all over the living room and the kitchen looks like a craft fairy crash landed.
