2nd card for in Memory of Layton

Jak Heath at Crafters Kitchen has two digi images on offer to help raise money for research into meningtis. Sadly Jak lost her 16 month old, great nephew to this disease on the 27th October this year. Jak announced yesterday that these two images had raised 1000 pounds already. Isn't that fantastic.

Finally, had a go at the second image by Jim Harker. I must say when this snowman is uncoloured he looks a little evil to me. But when I showed my daughter last night I relieved to hear her say he doesn't look evil anymore. :-) I used brown Bazill for the base card then some wonderful cream vellum with a snowy flourish. Trimmed the vellum with gold border sticker from the Sticker Store. Along the bottom I stuck some wonderful snowflake buttons from Blue Edge Crafts. Next came the image which I backed with a layer of red card. I coloured the snowman with my water colour pencils and aqua pen. Finished him with some glitter and metallic pens. Then added the rub on from Letraset ' Festive Frolics'.

Now for my exciting news...........I am going to be an Aunt again today. :-) My sister-in-law went into hospital last night at 11.30pm when her waters broke and now they are waiting for the doctor to arrive to arrange a ceaser. As with all her other babies (this is number four) this baby can't wait to get into the world. My SIL was booked in for the 3rd December for a ceaser but this one just can't wait. So I have everything crossed that all goes well. I think we all have our breath held baby number three Harmony was only with us for three days.

Oh, and my computer is still really really slow.

Mustn't forget our dog is okay. Had to have an xray and discovered that his leg bone in his left hip socket doesn't sit as snuggly as the right. So this explains the limp when he gets up from sitting and nothing serious. Yay!!!!


  1. Love your coloring on this card! Doesn't look evil at all!

    Sorry to hear your dog is limping. Glad it isn't anything serious but I bet it drives your dog nuts!

    Oh wow...another baby! How exciting...I bet you posted that the baby is already born. I am just catching up...will have to see some newer posts...

  2. Woo hoo - another baby - how fun!!! Sorry about Doggy and great card!
