Golden Wedding card

A friend asked me to make this card after she saw the one i made a few weeks ago with the butterflies on. I like this kind of fold, i think i will be making a few more of these!

This pic shows it in the box .....

Side view shows the fold and detail better....

.....and the box i made for it. I think i could have made a better job of decorating the box but i'm not used to making them, i will try better next time!

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Hi friends, its a glorious morning and the sun is shining for a change instead of all the rain we have been getting. There are three days of football being played for the "Olympic Games" in our area, so its good to have fine weather for all the visitors to our region.

Today's post is a sympathy card which i made for a friend who's father died. Its just a simple card with some cuttlebugging on the front and a bunch of flowers from a decoupage sheet.


 Hope you all have a lovely day and thanks for visiting my blog!

Anniversary card for my husband

This is a card i made for my husband for our anniversary. I cut the letters with my Cricut........ i got the idea for the button on the card from a card i saw at the last craft show i went to.

Thanks for looking

Dipping into my scrap box!

Hi everybody, i've been having a sort out and promised myself i would use something out of my scrap box/s every week. I have got 2 boxes ...one has toppers in (some made up) and other bits, the other has lots of bits of backing papers - embossed bits of card and stamped images so i have made two cards from them to show you.

First one was inspired by a Debbie Moor sample, i needed a card for a friends birthday and the grey cells weren't working :-(  ....I added a little bit of my own idea to it though ...lol!

For the next card i used a card with a lovely shaped edge from a Craftwork card's goodie bag ....i embossed the edge with a cuttlebug folder to give it a bit of interest. I used a flower topper that was already made up from my odds and ends box + some ribbon and stamped a message cut out with a "Stampin up" punch, the butterflys were peel-offs... again from my stash box..... I loved the end result.

Thanks for looking.

Wedding Card

Hi everybody, i have a wedding card to show you, my mother-in-law asked me to make it for her cousins daughter and future husband..... but got mixed up with the date of the wedding so i only had a couple of days to get it made!  It was a bit of a rush as i have other cards backing up on me, never mind .....i couldn't disappoint her!

Thanks for looking.

These ones are all Hunkydory cards ....... this one is for my brother-in-law who loves classic cars so he appreciated this one.....its much like a car he has.

This one is for another brother-in-law who loves a game of golf ..........
