Variation on a Theme!

Another glorious sunny day in sorry but this lovely weather is playing havoc with my crafting! We've been making the most of the sunshine and spending time with the kids in the garden, however, do have a couple of cards to show you. Just lately, the boys seem to have been invited to so many parties so had to make this one for a friend of Lewis's. He went to her sleepover on Friday and had a great good in fact, that he slept all of Saturday afternoon!! When I made the card, thought I'd be a really good girl and use up the rest of the supplies on a very similar card so I don't get caught out in the future!

I've used my Penny Black elephant and coloured him/her with Brushables and added some Glamour Dust to the petals on the flowers. Cardstock is Bazzill, DP is from HOTP, sentiments are from Craftwork Cards, sticky gems are from Papermania and ribbon is from my stash. Embossed the c.s. on the second card with my Cuttlebug embossing folder. Very basic and simple cards which didn't take long to make and Lewis's friend was very pleased with hers.

Must dash as I've got a chocolate cake in the oven which I need to finish before Tony starts on the tea. Should be back tomorrow with another card to share and some lovely things I have received over the last few days.....see you then.

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!


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.
