Here's another card I was asked to make for a friend and went back to an old layout using Sue Wilson dies and then just painted and inked up some chipboard numbers to finish it off.  I'm entering this one in the Papertake Weekly challenge this week which is to add dimension to your cards which I have done by adding foam pads to base one layer, centre piece and bunting.

Another Periwinkle Card!

I was asked to make a wedding card for a friend and knew exactly what image I wanted to use and the colour.  However, things never go to plan and changed my mind halfway through and ended up using the Creative Expressions Periwinkle card stock again!  The gorgeous image is LOTV - one of my favourites!

Happy Anniversary!

Another quick card which I made last week for a couple who are celebrating 66 years of marriage - I did tell them they would have got less time in prison if they had murdered someone!  

The image is from LOTV and decorated the card base with various papers, flowers, etc from my stash.  Quite pleased with the end result considering it only took me ten minutes to make!

Home Sweet Home

Here's a card I was asked to make for a friend who needed a "New Home" card.  I love this image by Whipper Snapper and almost always seem to use it for this type of card.

I am entering this one in the Papertake Weekly Challenge "Anything Goes".

Ahoy There!

I originally made one of these cards years ago after seeing it on a friend's blog and she kindly sent me the details of how to make it.  Recently, I had a request to make a card for a five year old boy and thought this would be perfect!

More of the Same!

After making Sam's birthday card recently, thought I would build up my supply of cards and use up the toppers on the sheet with similar cards.

The first three are 6" x 6" and the last two are 8" x 8".  Used various scraps of paper but plain blue card stock with my Inky Doodles Fabulous Fabrics stamps to create a pattern.

More from the Needles & Pins

A few more cards from the Hobby House Needles & Pins kit…three more projects left to make which are not cards so watch this space!
