Stampbord card

Did this one for a rubber stamping swap I'm in. I sellotaped 16 pieces of 1"x1" stampbord together on the back then stamped the naked lady and masked her before stamping the rocks (which is actually a small mountain range stamp turned sideways) then stamped the stampscapes lakeside cabin, cloud rising moon (in yellow in) and oak tree branch.
I coloured using various inks and added highlights with sakura stardust clear pen and scratched out some more highlights and stars. I edged the image with palette hybrid ink in beaux arts blue, black stazon and gold krylon. I then separated the pieces and glazed with dimensional magic then mounted onto black card leaving a small gap. I also added some sticky gems to the bottom to finish :)

Why Oh Why....

Did we have another one!!! AAAARGH!!!

Awww thats unfair lol! Molly's got colic only she's a LOT louder than Ethan was when he had it. By god that girl can scream! She made my ears buzz before! Finding it quite tough going as she's clingy in the day and about 3pm it starts and goes on and on and on until around 8, by which time I'm ready to have a breakdown.

She had her 6 week check up this week, all's well, doctor found her birthmark which is a patch on the back of her head which we thought was a rash. They've also been a party this week, was Maxine's little boy's 5th birthday, Ethan crammed as much as he could in his big gob all at once lol! Molly slept through most of it and woke up when most of the kids had gone and it had gone quiet!
Here's new pic at 6 weeks (Notice Maxine's fabulous wallpaper in the background lol! She's dead proud of that you know! You'll recognise it from the american boy video ;-))

And this is Jamie's birthday card made with DCWV rock star stack, magnolia edwin with balloon painted with distress inks and outlined with a grey copi cmarker which sheilakins kindly sent me! The stars and number 5 are chipboard
