I printed it onto the lovely white linen cardstock and matted and layered the two different bp's. I've added decoupaged "M" and painted this over with clear nail varnish (as always) and used little pearls, white bows and the lovely sheer white ribbon down the left side of the card - topped with a pearl heart. Suitably glamour dusted, this card looks stunning I think (pic doesn't do it justice).

I've again used the alphabet and graphics from theclipartfairy's cd "It's in the Words" which is my all time favourite crafters cd. Instead of having the letters overhanging the pages, I framed them in the space on the page, still quite a nice look I think, but the blue one is my favourite.
The little glittery brads holding the pages together were another 29p bargain from Hobbycraft's sale clearance. As usual, I've glamour dusted around the letters and the gorgeous little baby graphics........ don't you love the little sleeping baby peeping out from the next to last page:)

I've painted over the shoes, balls, bat and cap with, of all things, clear varnish (this doesn't make the colour run from graphic), to add a nice sheen to graphic and being a boy's card, minimal glitter (just on the wording). I was asked to make a card for Adam that included his favourite sport (football) with some blue (in the shoes and cap), a card that was neither too grown up nor too babyish. I think this fits the bill, don't you?

The picture, sadly does not give a true representation of the colours used here, they are actually a muted peachy colour but in the light of my desk lamp, have taken on a more terracotta colour. I have added my usual sparkle and am pleased with the overall result.

We have attached a length of very fine wire to the roof so's it can hang from somewhere in Elizabeth's room. You could also make the house up and fill with little bird treats and give to someone as a present for the birds in their garden (That's what the original template was being shown as.)
Hope you like it, we think it's cute............. this will be something we will be using trying out different papers and hopefully different little birds too.

This is the Christening card I made last night and couldn't post as camera batteries had run out!

I was asked to make a 40th birthday card for a friends daughter........ this is what I made. The design is from the clipart fairy. I added little seed pearls and a peel-off (which I don't usually use). The recipient was delighted with her card and I enjoyed making it. There are more cards like this from Wendy, on her cd "Handbag Cards" and all are fabulous and so easy to create.
Today I have also been creating a Christening Card for a friends Granddaughter...... I have used the clipart fairy's "book-a-easels" cd to create this and completed with a box, unfortunately the batteries have run out on my camera so not able to transfer tonight but will put a pic of that on tomorrow.

The pic doesn't do this card justice...... there are so many layers of decoupage to this (7 or 8) and the diamond sparkles don't show up too well either. I have added little pearl flowers and pretty pale pink orchids to finish off this lovely card. The back of the card is also printed in the same way and the finished card stands about 12" high.
Want to share this "footie" card I created tonight. I don't do football cards usually so was struggling a bit until I found these graphics on a ready to print card but wanted to make up a bigger card so used different elements to create 8" x 8" card for a man's 40th birthday.
I designed this card last night for my Cousin (who wanted a birth congratulation card), I've used the bear on shelf graphic from theclipartfairy, along with backing papers from same. I decoupaged the bear on shelf to give some dimension and added two little brads for the knobs on the drawer and some sheer ribbon and bow. Two little blue baby feet added to the top right (bargain from Hobbycraft clearance at 29p - wow!)
