Happy Birthday Aaron!

It's Vanessa's eldest Son's birthday today so HAPPY BIRTHDAY AARON and hope you have a great day! which leads me on to the card I have to show...it's the one I made him so hope you received it in time! Really quite difficult to make cards for boys who are 11 so here's what I did.

The image is courtesy of Fran and I've coloured it with Brushables. Cardstock is Bazzill and paper is Daisy Bucket. Used my SU punch to make the tab and fixed it to the card with some eyelets from my stash. Xtreme stamp is from Rubbadubadoo and "Totally Special" stamp is from Autumn Leaves (I think!).

Feeling a bit down in the mouth today as Chelsea lost the football last night and haven't heard from Tony this morning so he must be really depressed! as he got up at 4.00 in the morning to watch the match!! Never mind, we'll be back!!

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.







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.
