A pirate and a baby girl!

Hya friends.
I hope you are all well and enjoying some decent weather as we are for a change.
(I know some of my American and Canadian friends are still getting SNOW)!
Shock horror!
Well, here in Blighty, we have blue skies and warm sunshine!
What a novelty! LOL

Hmm I digress.
I HAVE been busy, but three, no FOUR of my projects have to be kept under wraps for now.
Not long though and I'll be able to share them with you.

I CAN share a couple of flip cards I've made though.
One was done with my Silhouette Cameo and one was done with a Sizzix Flip -it die set.
I must admit, I'm not a fan of the Sizzix one.
The cut -out (bit that flips) is very small. Too small to do much with IMHO.
 I prefer the circle one, it's much better.
 
 Front
 I coloured my cute pirate with Copics and a Sharpie pen.
 The paper is digital by Silver Daisies Studios.
(It seems to have been discontinued)
middle
 The flip- it card, the wheel and the anchor are Silhouette files.
 Back
 I'm a tad  very annoyed, 'coz Kathy Jakopovich of Peachy Keen fame, gave me a Sizzix circle set when I visited last year.
CAN I FIND IT??? NO!!!  
I've hunted high and low and destroyed my craft room in an attempt to unearth it. 
NADA! Hmmpphh, I WILL find it one day.


My next card is made with All Dressed Up digital paper ...
 Front
 This is the Sizzix one.
The frame die is too small in my opinion.
Middle
I hand cut (not completely successfully) a border to try and make the die cut a bit larger.

The paper are beautiful and available here.
Guess how much for FIVE gorgeous papers......75 pence!!!!
That's as cheap as chips and that's for all 5 papers!!!

Well that's it from me for now!
I hope you enjoyed your visit and hope you'll drop by again really soon.

Not normally a fan of these flip cards Viv, but you have succeeded with them where I would, and have in the past, failed miserably :o)

Cute card design. I just discovered I'm not getting my subscription to your blog any more, or even Chocolate Baroque's. It seems that Feedburner subscriptions stopped coming to me. Your blog won't let me re-subscribe. And by the way, I'm in a winter turtleneck today. LOL.

I am so jealous of you and that cameo. I agree with the size of the sizzix one. You did a lovely job with both cards though! I can so relate with not being able to find your goodies. It will turn up, eventually. :)
