Happy Birthday Terry!

This image was ideal for the person I needed to make a card for - a friend's husband who works extremely hard and helps me out with jobs as well but who has "his own armchair" where he has his downtime!


The image is LOTV from a pre-coloured pad which I love because it saves me a lot of time, papers are My Minds Eye and punch SU on which I have stamped a MFT sentiment. Webbing, string and button from my stash.

Happy Anniversary!

Here's a card which turned out exactly how I planned it which is a first in my own cardmaking experience!  I needed to make a card for a dear friend of mine for her silver wedding anniversary and wanted to make it quite special because I was her only Bridesmaid.


This is quite a large card for me - 8" x 8" so for the background I used some silver mirricard and a plain piece of white card which I embossed with a Sue Wilson embossing folder and then sprayed with Spray and Sparkle.  The main image is LOTV taken from one of their art pads and layered this onto a Tattered Lace die which again, had been covered in Spray and Sparkle. Then added some silver mesh, white tulle and crushed silk ribbon together with a couple of silver pins and a dazzler.  Flowers were also given the Spray & Sparkle treatment (I love that stuff!) and finally added a sentiment from Paper Smooches together with some sticky gems.  Must admit I was really pleased with the end result!

I'm entering this card in the Papertake Weekly Challenge "Anything Goes".

Yes, Another Pink Card!

Making good use of the SU pink card stock!  Here's another one, a birthday card made using a DoCrafts topper I found in my stash.


The two dies are from Cheery Lynn Designs and Lil'Inkers and the embossing folder is a Sue Wilson design which I absolutely adore!  The fairy cake sentiment came with the topper and adhesive pearls are from HobbyHouse.

(Still) in the Pink!

I seem to be on a roll with the pink card stock at the moment! Here's a couple of cards I've made recently - the first was for a friend's birthday so used one of my all time favourite brands, Penny Black.


The image is called "A Tender Hug!" and is coloured with Copics/Spectrum Noir, and added a little glitter to the flowers with a glitter pen.  Cut and layered this image with Nesties.  Base of card is made up with SU card stock, Sue Wilson embossing folder and a die cut from Cheery Lynn Designs (which I made the mistake of sticking on the wrong way because I was distracted with the football on TV!). Sentiment is Paper Smooches stamped onto an MFT die.  Finally, added some flat backed pearls from Hobby House.

The second card is for one of my elderly ladies who is currently in hospital.  


I've used the Studley set of dies from Tattered lace cut in white and pink and shadowed slightly to give a bit of colour.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the flowers from my stash. Would really have liked to have added a few more bigger flowers, however, needed to fit this card in an envelope rather than a box.

Pretty in Pink

Here's a card I made recently for a friend who needed something for a Church Blessing following a marriage.  I love this image and do have the actual stamp, but to save time, used one of Lily of the Valley's pre-coloured images…makes life so simple!


I used some SU pink card stock then covered it with the Tonic Beautiful Bramble die cut from Centura Pearl card.  The image has been cut with a Nestie then added a bow, flowers and heart hat pin (all from The Ribbon Girl)to finish it.

Gorjuss Bookmark

A quickie bookmark I made with the scraps of paper I've been using for the cards I made recently.  Thought this Gorjuss decoupage image was ideal for a bookmark - very quick to put together!

Gorjuss x 3

Here's a few cards I put together whilst waiting for the dinner to cook…roast lamb, yum!  They're all Gorjuss Girls decoupage with VERY simple layouts but needed some quick cards as my card basket is empty!




Hope everyone is enjoying their Easter break.
