My baby girl left home today and some cards

I have just stumbled back into my house after helping my baby girl (23) moving into her own place. She has been living on her 'own' for the last three years while studying, but that was not really leaving home yet, because she still came home most weekends. Now that she is teaching, she needs to stay closer to her school and found the loveliest place. Its on a smallholding where the owner built six apartments. Lots of security. I am sad to see her leave home for good, but also very proud that she is spreading her wings and flying like a pro!
Here are some of the cards that I made for the art exhibition at school. I apologise for the bad pictures, but I was so busy that I clean forgot to take pictures untill I was at the exhibition and the lighting was not ideal for photo's.
The first one is a Bugaboo image that I have had coloured for a very long time. She was coloured with my Copics and the heart and collar got some Flowersoft treatment. The flowers and seam binding are my new delivery from Wild Orchid Crafts, aren't they just gorgeous? The lace border was cut with a Nellie Snellen Die, Cardstock is Bazzil and the dp is from Paper Explosions.
The next three cards all use images fom Mo Manning. I just LOVE her images. All cardstock is from Bazzil and all images were coloured with my Copics. Dp is from Paper Explosions.
The green dp in this card is Melissa Francis. I used my MS punch for the heart border and the seam binding and flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts.
This one got some Stickles on the star and the ribbon is from my stash.
This image was cut with a Nellie Snellen die. The pillow got some flowersoft and the bunny some fluff. The trim is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and I added some blue pearls.
There are a whole lot more where these came from. If I have time tomorrow (have to go back to DD's new place with the last bits and pieces and hang her pics and her lounge curtains) I will post some more.
Have a great rest of the weekend!


  1. Aw! I can't imagine how it must feel to have your little girl going on her own as mine are still young but know that time goes so fast and it will be us in not too long. I am glad she has a good job and place to live though. In these tough economic times, that is terrific.

    Your cards are beautiful. Such darling images and soft colors.

    Enjoy your weekend!
