For Oliver

 Well, I've written all of my Christmas cards and discovered that I have lots left over so I really must put the seasonal dies and stamps back into their boxes until next year - didn't realise I'd made quite as many and of course I did have a few left from last year, and so they mount up ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰. 

 I have a great grandson who will be one year old at the end of the month so thought I'd get ahead of the game and make a card for him.  While I was searching through my stash recently, searching for something in particular (as I'm sure we all do), I spotted a set of Forever Friends stamps which I've had for many years and I know they've not been used for a while so I made a mental note to use one of them for this card.  Struggled a bit to find some suitable background paper but managed to find something on an old CD and I've added some die cut bunting with his name on and a nice large figure one.  While I had the stamp set out I stamped and coloured two or three other images which I can use to make cards to pop into my box.

Image - from Forever Friends stamp set by Docraft - probably no longer available
Bunting - die from unknown source
Alphabet - dies from a set which came free with a magazine many years ago
Number - die from unknown source
Backing Paper - from Polkadoodles Pretty Tuff CD (also quite old)
Colouring - Polychromos pencils


  1. Perfect card for Oliver Val and nice bright colours


  2. I have a huge pile of card scraps, stamps and dies just by my left elbow when stamping. I really must sort it out but it just grows back! A perfect card for that happy occasion and I love the bunting.

  3. That’s a very cute card for your grandson, I’m sure Oliver will love it xxx

  4. Your Great Grandson will love his card. I am about to make a card for my Grandson who also bears the same name and his birthday at the end of this month.Hugs Mrs A.

  5. You've made a super card for Oliver there Val.
    Hugs, Sarn xxx
