A Card for Grandma

Another chilly morning today although we have seen a little glimpse of sun, but not for long. Very peaceful in my house this morning - the boys have gone to Sunday School and then they have their nativity practice so I've got another hour before I pick them up! This will be another quick posting as it's Grandma's birthday today (my mother-in-law) so when I've picked the boys up, we have to have a quick lunch and then off to see the birthday girl(!), so thought I'd post the card I made for the boys to give her.

It's Penny Black's sweet little elephant and I've coloured it using Brushables and added a little glitter to the daisies. It's mounted on pink Bazzill c.s. with foam pads and has some East of India ribbon, a prima flower and a Dovecraft brad attached to it. I can't remember what make the grey paper is on the card as I've had it for ages!

Hope to be able to share something else very soon but because it's a little pressie for a friend of mine who reads my blog (yes, you know who you are!!), I won't be able to put the photo on for a little while! Hope you all have a relaxing Sunday.

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...

...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.

Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.
