My sweet niece and God-girl turns 4! (recently....)

Remember me...?

I'm the one that pops in here occasionally and shows you a project or two that I have made from time to time.  I use the word 'occasionally' very loosely...

You might notice that I have also used the word 'recently' in the title of my post, and those of you who know precisely how many neices I have, how many of them I am Godmother to and when their birthdays are will know exactly how loosely I'm using that particular word....

It's been rather a bustling few weeks around here, with more workshops packed into a shorter time-frame than I am accustomed to (loving this though!) plus life in general keeping me moving along at rather a cracking pace, so my blogging has suffered somewhat in the process.   I can report however,  that I have just spent a good half hour or more editing no less than 25 photos of different things that I have been working on in recent times, so there are posts a-comin', let me assure you!

Just don't go asking for a time-frame, that's all... ;-)

Starting with this card for the 4th birthday of sweetie-pie Ruby...

I was inspired by this gorgeous card that my team member Danneil posted to her blog earlier in the year.  Dan has since stopped blogging, but you can still go and check out her gorgeous stuff that she has posted previously, just don't go there expecting updates :-)

This is the inside of the card.....

...and this is the little guy up close and personal like...

Such a cute stamp this one, and I love that you can totally get away with colouring him in all roughly and uneven and it adds to his hedgehoggy texture rather than making you look like you failed kindergarten.

Keep an eye out for 25 more posts coming your way.....soon, keeping in mind my propensity to use words loosely of course....
