Olivia is 3 today

Little Olivia, or Livi as she gets called, is Len's (and therefore mine....... by proxy - :)) youngest grand daughter and she's three years old today.This is the card I made to send to Germany for her:
I used:

- 6" x 6" square cream card stock

- Joanna Sheen stamp from the 'Enchanted' set, coloured with Pro Markers and Glamour Dust on the wings

- pinky mauve pearlescent backing card

- backing paper from the Prima 'Firefly' pack

- sentiment is a LOTV one, stamped in SU's 'Melon Mambo'

- butterflies from my stash

- the number 3 was die cut using a new die I found in Joanna Sheen's online shop, by Britannia Dies and at £9.50 (qualifying for P & P) it would have been rude not to buy it. Up until now I've relied on some great die cut numbers that Sarn kindly sent me, just waiting and hoping I'd find a reasonably priced numbers die - no alphabet as yet though :( They're, obviously from the name, a British company and I do love the die, precise and clean cut

- Craftwork Cards card candi coloured with a Pro Marker and letters stamped using Craftwork Cards own lettering set. It's great to use but the letters are so small I live in fear of accidentally throwing one away sometime :(

And, this is the little 'imp' herself:
Apparently having a 'bad hair day' - but I bet lots of us would love hair like Livi's :)

Happy Birthday Livi - love from Grandad and GranDi XXX



  1. What card? That Livi is stunningly gorgeous, Di! Look at those eyes!! The symmetry of her face is extraordinary. She needs an agent!!

  8. Great card - a fairy and butterflies, perfect for a little girl. And Livi is absolutely gorgeous ... not an imp at all, but a real little sweetie :)

    I have a Sissix Alphabet die but I do struggle with it ... it cuts unevenly in my Cuttlebug ... it would be nice to have one that works really easily, sigh!

    Hugs, Elizabeth xx

  10. Oh isn't she just the cutest and having hair like that at 3 wow it'll be down her back before she is 5 such a lovely colour too! beautiful card Di she will love it xx

  11. What a cutie, both the card and Livi. LOve the backing papers and the image is great.
    Wish I had bad hair days like that I look as if I have been dragged through 3 or 4 hedges backwards when I get up in a morning.
