Create with TLC July Blog Hop

Hello all!
Here another Create with TLC Blog Hop with
Words, Timeless and Beautiful artwork for YOU.
I hope you came here via Jennifer's Blog
and grabbed her freebie and let yourself be  inspired
by her wonderful artwork.

Now on to my work. I have stepped down from the
Design Team, because I have broken my arm 6 weeks ago 
and slowly am getting back into crafting again. 
Still need some fysiotherapy.
I am honoured to be part of this blog hope and you will be 
surprised what this  wonderful new design team 
has in the making for you.

So let's go:
I have made two card this time.
The first card is one you can use for any ocassion.
( click on the image and safe it
to your computer for personal use).
This beautiful image is  printed on paper, white 
or as I have done on colored paper. I colored the
image with copic markers and used a little glitter glue
on the butterflies. The background is a few layers
of scrap paper on top of each other and the borders
are all distressed and colores with victorian lace distress ink.

Another reason why I  stepped down from the
Design Team is because this week my first grandchild
was born and I need some time adjusting
(my DD and SIL live with us temporarily).

So for my second card  I used the image for
a scrap card with a photo of my new grandson.
Today he is 6 days old
I printed  the "life" image on a piece of cardstock and
cut it to 5,25"x 5,25" and made a window for
the picture next to the digital image.
I also printed another Create with Tlc sentiment.

The image is colored with copic markers.
 I finished of the card with a ribbon  and little blue gemstones.
Hope you got some ideas from my cards.

Oh need more?!
OK, move on to Paulette's blog
over at Create with TLC.

Thank you for HOPPING by.
Have a creative day!

First, welcome to the Grandmother's Club. You are going to love it. He's surely a keeper, as me and my daughter say. Secondly, so sorry to hear about you breaking your arm, but glad to hear you are on the mend. Third, thank you for the download, it's sweet.

Your cards are beautiful as always and I like you showed two ways to us the image.

*you look way to young to be a grandma*

Thanks for sharing. Take care of yourself.
