Today would have been my Sons 51st Birthday

I cannot believe that so many years have flown by and so much has happened since this beautiful baby boy was born, I know I only had you 6 months but those months are the most precious to me, they gave me time to get to know you and love you. Im so sorry you suffered so much in the last two months and I wouldnt wish that on you again, so I know it was for the best that you didnt manage to surmount it.
My dearest Son Ian you missed meeting your two younger sisters and all your nieces and nephews and now your Big Sister is also a grandmother to two gorgeous boys, so sleep well my love hopefully one day I will meet you again.

A Card for Facebooks ArtbyMiran Challenge

Good Morning Crafters, well last week I discovered I had won a digi on the Facebooks ArtbyMiran Challenge and I picked this young lady "Lily" and I printed her onto white card to colour her with copic pens, I then used a Nestabilitie Die to cut her out and a fancy one for the mount out of blue card.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a base card is a blue card, the papers are from Sweetshoppes "Come Rain and Shine" paper set, and I used 4 of the papers the first a white background with blue and yellow flowers on, the second is again a white background with a tartan pattern in blue and yellow. The third and forth are blue and green and layered up as shown in the photo.
I then placed the mounted image in the center and created a floral mount in the top left hand corner the sentiment was stamped and positioned in the bottom right hand corner and the final flourish are the two gems in the top right and bottom left hand corners.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

5th Challenge for Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge

Yet another month has flown by and we have reached our 5th "Anything Goes" Challenge over on Hazels Craftyhazelnuts Paper Patterned Challenge and we are so lucky to be able to choose what sort of card we wish to enter (and you do to) but YOU MUST MAKE SURE ITS ON PATTERNED PAPER so that isnt a problem is it? And if your anything like me you have boxes of it so its lovely to be able to use it up in such a wonderful way.
As always Hazel has a fabulous prize for you
And for this one again I am using my Heartfelt Stamps and Dies.

These stamps is from the "Market Harvest" stamp and die set, I stamped the large image first onto white card then coloured it with my copic pens, the two smaller stamped images you can see have also been treated in the same way but I cut them out with the dies that come with this set.
The base card is 6.50"x 6.50" white card and the first mount is a beige one and on top of this I have used one of the papers from the paper pad set its a mauve distressed paper, and then mounted my larger stamped image onto a piece of the same beige card which has a stitched edge to it, I placed it onto of the base layer and then moulded the two extra stamps and stuck them across two of the corners as shown. To finish of I have stamped the sentiment in the top right hand corner directly onto the larger stamped mounted image.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the "Craftyhazelnuts Patterned Paper" Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Anything Goes" Challenge, but dont forget we want to see your card using Patterned Papers for any part of it.
