From my Emma!

Good Morning Everyone, 
I hope you are all having a good weekend. I wanted to share a very special birthday card today, this is the one I got for my birthday from my gorgeous little girl Emma.(Age 7)
She's used bog standard coloured pencils....not a promarker in sight...although she's always trying to get her hands on them!!!  She's drawn the image especially for me and it is me and Emma.

I'd like to enter her card into the Simon Says Stamp Childrens Summer Vacation Challenge.

Have a lovely Sunday everyone.

Hello Everyone, 
It's turned into a very busy couple of weeks so I haven't had much time for crafting. It's my gorgeous girls birthday today..7 years old already!! She's a little bit sad as on Sunday night she slipped on the stairs and hurt her ankle. There was quite a loud 'cracking' noise so off to A & E we went.....a couple of hours later, and an x-ray..she has a badly sprained ankle with a possible hairline crack and torn ligament...so all bandaged up and no running around!! Mmmm!!!
I realised..... last night...that I hadn't made her a card...oops! I knew she wanted one of the box cards so here it is , finished by 11pm in a bit of a rush!
I've used the gorgeous stamp from Sugar nellie, Jasmine (It had to be a fairy for my girl!) I coloured her with promarkers and added lots of glitter to her fairy wings.
I used a Crafts Too flower die, a Die namics petal die and a Joanne Sheen lace edge die. Ribbon and gems from my stash.
