Cake Glorious Cake!


Here's one of the Lili of the Valley stamps I bought at the NEC recently - isn't she cute? Blonde Moments paper and mirricard and a sprinkling of Glamour Dust. The cake stamp on the inside of the card is an old Anita's one I dragged out of the drawer! Got a few more of these LOTV stamps which hopefully should be making an appearance on here over the next few days.

Party Worm

Here's a card I made for my Brother...I love making cards for little boys but not the grown up kind! Anyway found this little fella called Party Worm from Whipper Snapper and used some paper which I had left over from a previous card. Sentiment is SU. Hoping to be able to spend a bit more time on my cards soon with a few more embellishments and detail.

Daddy's Boys

I wanted to share a gift I made for my boys to give to their Dad for his 50th Birthday. I had planned to put the book together during my time at home after my operation however, that didn't happen due to the fact that I was rushed back into hospital so it's taken me nearly six weeks to complete by just doing a little each day.

I won't bore you with all the details, however, had this concertina album with box for ages now so started by painting it all cream. For the cover of the box, used one of the SMASH pockets and stamped an SU greeting on the front then got the boys to fill in a page each from a SMASH pad and turned them into labels to put into the pocket.


All papers are MME and card stock is SU. All embellishments are from my scrapbook collection (of which I think I have too many!). Kept the layouts all very similar and simple as I wasn't physically able to sit for hours at a time.

Happy Birthday Izzy!

Here's a birthday card for my little Great Niece, Izzy...I think it looks just like her!! Used an image from The Greetings Farm coloured with PM's and a touch of Glamour Dust. Papers are Magnolia and gems are SU. Sentiment is an old one which I can't remember! Also added some more paper and an Elzybell's sentiment to the inside which I forgot to photograph...d'oh!

Get Well Soon Finn!

Sorry my cards aren't very adventurous at the moment, however, as I explained previously, I can't sit for long to create so have to keep them very quick at the moment. Needed to make a dog themed card for someone I work for so chose this cute Whipper Snapper image "Sweet Sniffs of Spring" coloured in the usual way with Promarkers. Papers are Whiff of Joy, gems are SU and sentiment may possibly be Woodware although not totally sure!
