Baby look at you now!

Many thanks to everyone who left kind comments for me about the loss of my cat, Jenny. They are really appreciated.

It's Daring Card Making time again and this week the dare is:
Say it in "Sepia"
This was perfect timing for the card I needed to make for my Great Aunt whose birthday is next week, she is one of those relatives who really appreciates my home made cards and I had this cute scan of a photograph of her as a small child on the beach. Now as she will be 89 on her birthday, you can imagine how rare a photo like this would be! Inside the card is an insert with a photo of her as she is now.

Background: download from Stampington
Text paper: K&Co Verbena
Watch image: Last Door Down the Hall
Vintage Lace/flowers/brads etc : from my stash

Oops forgot to say that I used Kathy Black's latest sketch (#17 ) for this card.


  1. awe, Janice your Great Aunt is going to be thrilled when she sees your card. It's super.xx

  2. Hi Janice I absolutely love this card and to have that precious photo of your Great Aunt on it makes it so extra special - this is one to treasure for sure.

    Hope you're ok.

  6. I love this and all of the elements you incorporated into the design. Your Great Aunt will really appreciate it!

  7. What a great idea: using baby photos on birthday cards! And this fits the sepia dare very well.

  8. This is gorgeous, I love all the "added" bits and bobs - and especially that lovely lace
