I don t often do cute but I had to do a card for a very special 2 year old. I ve recently took part in a Penny Black image swap and I ve got loads of images which I m going to keep for emergency's.

I ve used this cute image called *Embrace* and coloured it with my prismas and gamsol, card stock by SU ribbon unknown ( had it in my stash ages) scalloped punch and 1 3/8" circle punch and a chipboard number 2( w hich I ve glittered to the roofs lol) from SU on board lots of letters( did you see how much chipboard you get for your money in those packs? )LOADS.......

My message swas stamped with SU daily flexible phrases and my Stamp-a-ma-jig, I am so pleased with that little tool, my messages are spot on every time now.

The photo is a first for me as it was taken at around 12 o clock at night in my craft room with some black card stock around it and my OTT lamp. I know the bulbs in those lamps simulate natural daylight but I never thought it will work so well with my photography. I m quite pleased with the result and is definitely handy to know for the dark winter nights.

Now this next bit is really important......If your name is ANDREA BROWN please get in touch with me ASAP> M xxx
