I'm Still Alive!!

Hi All! Sorry I haven't been around lately but I haven't been feeling too good and had a rough couple of days. Starting to improve now and have finally managed to complete a card! This one is a Father's Day card for my Dad and it also incorporates the Tilda & Co and Papertake Weekly challenges. I know I'm too late for Tilda & Co but thought I'd have a go anyway. The theme was male cards. On Papertake this week it was to make a card from Claudia's frame card tutorial. I'd only got as far as stamping out the images before I was ill so the card has been a bit rushed today and is not quite perfect.


I have used Bazzill c.s. for the frame card and then used the following Magnolia images: Grandad (or Edwin's Father....not sure of his exact name!), Edwin's dog, part of the Edwin's town, fence, sun and mushrooms......the latter two were kindly stamped by Fran for me. All images were coloured with Prismas and Sansodor and the background piece of card was coloured with shimmery chalks, although, unfortunately, they don't show too well in the photo. The word "DAD" is made with Making Memories rub-ons.

Have alot of work to catch up on and also alot of blogging so Ladies, please don't think I'm ignoring you.....I will be visiting your blogs soon!

Card Requests

Been quite busy recently trying to juggle work, home life and the card requests I have received.  This type of card has proved very popular so here are the ones I have made so far...still have a few more projects and cards to complete before I am able to start on my own!









The two 50 cards do look almost identical however, they are for twins!

Finally!

Here's the last of my Christmas makes...















Birthday Wreath Card

Saw this design on one of AMD TV shows and fell in love with it immediately so set about making two different projects with the same design.
This is the first...


...a birthday card for a friend of mine.  I haven't quite finished the other project so I will show that another day.
