First Christmas Card!

Well, here it is, the only Christmas card I've made so far this year lol! Had to make this last week for some friends who are off to Trinidad for four months - lucky beggars! Image is Hanglar, papers are MME and just added a few embellishments from my stash - the ribbon is Gisela Graham which I got from the garden centre. Shame my photographic skills are so bad as you can't see all the layers and the glitter on the card, however, I was pleased with it (the card not the photo!)

Been out most of the day so really should get on with some more cards tomorrow once I've cleared the long list of jobs I have to do! Have a great weekend.

A Special Friend

Here's a card I made for a friend's birthday yesterday. The image is LOTV and papers are Blonde Moments. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and pink raffia is from my local florist (it looks alot darker than it is IRL!). Layered with mirricard and usual stitching and doodling. Colours look a bit harsh in this photo, alot more softer in the flesh!

Hope to be able to show you my first Christmas card at the weekend....so disorganised!!

A Little Cutie for a Little Cutie!

Here's a card I made for my Great Niece Izzy who was one yesterday (ooh, I hate using Great, makes me feel soooo old!). I've had this stamp from LOTV for a while but this was the first time of inking it up. Papers are Blonde Moments used with mirricard, flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and stamp is from......umm.....forgotten again, so sorry! Realised after I had stuck it all down that I should have put the stems of the flowers through the whole card so had alot of trouble getting it to stick. After a couple of days of holding it down with pegs in the hope it would stay, reverted to my sewing machine, hence the wobbly stitching!

Hope you're all having a good week...can't believe it's Friday already tomorrow!

Simple But Gorjuss!


Here's a card I made a little while ago which I found on my camera. A very simple design using a Gorjuss stamp which I think is called "Untamed" and which I've had for a while but have only just inked her up.

Have used scraps of MME papers (love these!), coloured with Promarkers and stitched with the sewing machine. Sentiment {I think} is from Woodware.

Off for a nice long soak in the tub now after my first day back at work....soooooo tired!

A Little Thank You


Here's a simple card I made for my Son to give to his friend's parents for taking him out last week. The image is from High Hopes coloured with Promarkers, sentiment and punch is SU. Since sorting out my craft room, I put all my scraps of paper and card into a box and have been trying to use that up. Distressed the edges and got my old faithful sewing machine out to stitch the edges. Finally added a bit of glitter pen to the flowers.


Back to work tomorrow after nearly a week off...yuk! although will be glad of the money!
