Still Alive & Kicking!!

Hi!! Sorry for the lack of postings but thanks for hanging in there and a HUGE thank you to Dawn because after our chat this morning, she inspired me to get going again and OMG, did she make me laugh!! What colour hair do you have today Dawn?!!!! Thanks also to Jose....you are just so kind to me and the boys :0)

Anyway, here's the card I put together today - nothing special, just very simple to get me started.

The image is High Hopes, coloured with Promarkers with some doodling around the edges. Papers are Pink Petticoat printed onto lightweight c.s. and the plain blue piece has been put through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly and has been layered onto blue c.s. which was cut with SU scalloped punch and I cut into it to give the flower effect and used a white gel pen to add the dots. Finally, added some Papermania sticky gems.

Thanks for looking.

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.
