Happy New Year!

"Happy New Year" to all my followers! I also hope you all had a lovely Christmas.

I'm sorry i haven't been posting the last couple of months. My camera developed a fault so had to be sent away to be repaired, I've only had it just over a year but luckily i took out an extended warranty.....because of this i couldn't photograph my cards!  

I also lost a bag full of stamps, dies, embossing powders and extras that i bought for my Xmas cards and after searching everywhere for them had to re-think the cards i was going to make ---just my luck!! Guess what ?...i found them after finishing my cards and putting all my Xmas craft away for another year! I have decided i must try and make a few cards each month for next Xmas, i will enjoy making them this way and not have to rush them and i can use all the lovely products i bought and never used!!

Below is a few cards i made and were on the camera when it went for repair and have just managed to download them.

First card is a Xmas card i made for my Mam using a Craftsuprint download, it was decoupaged and i added lots of glamour dust with some gold card behind the image.


Next one was another Xmas card, everything was made from bits and pieces in my stash.

Next one was a card for a friends birthday, the glitter and stencil used was from Imagination crafts. I loved using this technique and cant wait to do more. i added a message and ribbon from my stash. The pic of the first card is taken with my Camera before it went for repair ....the card wasn't finished but the glitter on the card shows better than the second finished card which i had to take with the camera on my phone.

Next card is a Clipart Fairy download, i love Easel cards and i think this one works well!

The next one was a commissioned card using a Hunkydory kit of backing card and image, the message was computer generated.

Next one is a card i made for my friends Daughter and her partner after the birth of their baby son Scott. The image of the giraffe was a Clipart Fairy download and the message was computer generated.  

Next card was made for my sister-in-law using a Hunkydory kit again ..... they are very handy when your mojo goes walk about :-) lol ! I used a Martha Stewart punch for down the side and added a ribbon and some gems!  

Next one is a Card i made for my friend on the birth of her first grandson, i printed the message on the card first and matted it onto a blue and then white card. The image i used was printed and then decoupaged, i added some glamour dust and some baby blue hearts to the corners.

This card was for my mam's birthday, its not the best pic as i had to use my mob phone to take it because my Camera was away for repair. The image is one from CraftsuPrint. I added Glamour dust and some pearls , the message was computer generated and cut using a Sizzix label cutting die.

Thanks for looking
