Pen Pal

Well, I think Summer is well and truly over!! Torrential rain and strong winds makes you want to stay in and craft. I've been having a busy couple of days trying to sort various paperwork out, telephone calls, etc., but managed to put this card together yesterday.




Sorry the photo isn't too good but it's so dark at the moment. This image is called Pen Pal from Sugar Nellie and was a RAK from Vanessa and I've coloured her with Promarkers. The papers are a free download from Summer Driggs (I think that's right!) and they are just so pretty. Used the SU corner rounder punch to make the scalloped edge and added some Papermania sticky gems. The sentiment is another download and I've cut it down a bit and layered it onto some more of the DP which has been cut using my Nestabilities.


Must say a big thank you to all of you who have been leaving comments on my blog. I'm feeling a little better and I think the "fighter" in me has emerged! Really hope to get around to all your blogs very soon.

My First Christmas Card!

I saw this card demonstrated by Sue Wilson last year and have only just got around to having a go!

I'm not completely happy with the colour of the holly as I feel it is a little too bright.

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.
