Blue Birds

Keep meaning to load these photos....

The cut out paper is 3d mounted for extra effect!
The second card I used the scraps to make a card for the Daring Card Makers challenge of 'birds'. They are fashionable in the crafting world but can be so versatile, so far I havent tired of my little bird stamps! I used the gorgeous K&Co wild saffron papers, and stuck with the brown and turqouise colour scheme.

Comfort in Christ

This week's SALT challenge "Comfort in Suffering" Suffering in this life is unavoidable but through Christ we have great reason to rejoice, in good times and bad. We can rest in knowing that God has a sovereign purpose both in our troubles and in the comfort that He gives us in them. The theme around my layout is the idea of 'home comforts' so warm textures and a homely feel, I wanted to keep it simple, so that the words, and picture would say it all. The picture is of my son walking under a near by railway bridge, I liked the composition and lighting and thought it highlighted the text that I wanted to use for the layout Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk through the vally of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me, your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Complete Commissions

Feel as if I have been away from my blog for a while, been desperate to get back! But I seem bogged down with other things are the moment, so thought I would share a few recent commissions with you; all slightly different- to keep me on my toes!
12 x 12 Frame for a friend's dad who was celebrating a special birthday, using photos of the family and words which had special meanings. Thanks to Ruth for your craft robo!
A wedding card, which incorporated the wedding colours, this was supposed to be a quirky card- but I dont easily do quirky, so tried to go for a slightly modern feel....?!

I was asked to make 2 books using photos of a school extension and incorporate the childrens drawings and writing. Both reciptitants (woops! recipient I mean- thans for your comment ruth!) would be male- so I avoided the floral route!
