More Birthday Cards and One From Me!!

Hi all, couldn't believe it, got another four cards in the post this morning. It's so funny because Sam is so intrigued by the postmarks and eagerly waits to hear which country they've come from....he loves it and I love the cards!! But first a card I made for a swap....got to put it first otherwise I'll forget what I've used on it .....I'm desperately repeating it to myself in my head before I forget...well, I am at that age now!!





The card base is layered with Bazzill c.s. and Karen Foster DP. The lime green c.s. has been run through the Cuttlebug with Stylized Flowers embossing folder. Oh, I've also added some mirricard (of course!!). Tilda has been coloured with Prismas and Sansodor with Glamour Dust added to her wings and the flower, and then layered onto the same c.s. as before. Flower is Prima, sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and sticky gems are Papermania. Wow, I remembered! Will definitely have to start writing it down in future!!


Have been busy trying to clean up the house and also doing the food shop as Tony has now confirmed his flight details! I won't have alot of time to do much tomorrow as I've got to take Lewis to Bovington for his Tae Kwon-do grading so trying to get it all done today. At least it's hot and sunny here today so the washing is drying. Tony lands quite early Monday morning so I'm hoping that will give me enough time to get the boys to school and glam myself up a bit. I've got a big surprise for him which I will share with you tomorrow and no, Vanessa, it's not what you're thinking.....dirty mare!!! Talking of Vanessa, I'm blaming her totally for my lack of blogging last night! Decided to give her a quick (?) phone call and then get on with visiting blogs, but three hours later, we're still talking and yawning! At one point, I thought she'd fallen asleep on the phone!!

Anyway, back to my beautiful birthday cards......

Jo I have to ask you, the photo of you standing outside what looks like a holiday villa, it isn't Four Seasons in the Algarve is it? It looks so much like it and I mean to ask you every time I visit your blog?!!

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.



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.
