The tiniest girl in the World

Hello, did anyone else watch Channel 5's documentary about Charlotte the tiniest girl in the world?  It was such a heart warming story about a wee little girl who at the age of 2 weighs just 7.5lbs.  She has a genetic condition which results in her dwarfism and she is the size of a little teddy.
Watching that programme made me realise that I have absolutely nothing to be moaning and feel quite ashamed that I had a right old moan the other day.

Anyway, here is a card I made for DD1 from her fella.



This is the 1st box I have made using my Martha Stewart scoreboard (wow, it really is everything Id heard and more!  Many thanks to EC, I don't want to advertise that you did what you did incase you get inundated with requests!).
I used a sparkle white Bazzill sheet and the beautiful mule by Chris Dark.  I love that image as it is so versatile and covers a big age range.  Please do hop over to have a peep as Chris has just launched the most beautiful kingfisher too!


I had no choice but to make a box for it as the card ended up pretty deep!


I made my first 'Joy-fold' card and it was much easier than I had anticipated!  Just as well!
The huge bloom I made using tissue paper on my flower nestie, the first use for that also and I chose Funky Fairies papers to use throughout the project.
The finished bloom was spritzed with Cosmic Shimmer Mist in Peacock with a touch of Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold.


I stamped a swirl and small flowers on the inside of the card and cut a couple of flowers so he could write on it!

Thankfully they both liked it so I was relieved!

Thank you for visiting my small neck of the woods and I hope the sun shines wherever you are this weekend!

Fabulous creations - that a wonderful flower. Keryn no berating yourself, we are all entitled to moan now and again. I think blogger is playing up as I was sure I'd left you a comment on your last post - but my computer/internet has been a bit hit and miss recently. Missed the programme but saw the ad - just knew I would cry all the way through(even if it wasn't supposed to be sad - I am like that where kids are concerned)Cheers Claire x
