Melinda Take II!

I recently made a card using Melinda Blowing Kisses using my red papers so thought I would show the second card I made with her and the blue/brown colour scheme.




The Stamp is from Whiff of Joy and coloured with Promarkers with a bit of doodling as is the norm for me lately and some Glamour Dust added to her wings. Papers are.........wait for it! My Minds Eye AND a little bit of K & Co!!, distressed and stitched. Sentiment is from Stampin Up, ribbon is from Hobbycraft and the pin I made myself - sorry it's a bit wonky but had a bit of a hard time trying to get it through the knot!! Corners of the card are rounded with an SU punch.


Off to do some housework now as I've got Vanessa and her boys visiting tomorrow.

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.



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.
