Love this Owl !

I saw variations of this card on Pinterest so decided to have a go at making it. Its made from different shape die's, it was going to be a birthday card for my sis who loves owls but i think it looks more suitable for a baby card or a young child's birthday.

Second card was made for a friends birthday, its a 6x6 card, i used some Sizzix dies which i bought in the sale and my fav border punch.

Thanks for looking

Diamond Wedding Anniversary

I was asked to make this Diamond Wedding anniversary card by a friend, it had to go to Canada so i tried to keep it as flat as possible. Its an 8x8ins card using Crafters Companion Centura Pearl card, i embossed it with Embossalicious Regency Frame folder. The hearts are from Nellie Snellen and the rest is from my stash.

The next one is along similar lines but was made for a friends Ruby Wedding Anniversary.

The next one was made for my sister and her husbands silver wedding Anniversary.

Thanks for looking and i hope they give you some inspiration

Chloe's creative cards Fabulous Dress stamp

I love this stamp and made my first of many cards i know i will be making with it. I also bought the new "Glam clutch bag stamp which is also so very versatile!
I used Halo glitter on the dress waistband by applying pva glue and then the glitter to make it look like an encrusted gold waistband! The papers i used for the dress was from an old pack i got from DoCraft "Papermania", i stamped the image using Chloes sparkelicious glitter onto the paper so the pattern showed on the dress the way Chloe did on her samples and cut a couple of the flowers from the paper sheet and applied some Glossy Accents to give them some body and shine before sticking them over the flower on the stamp on the waistband of the dress. The message is also from Chloe!  I have entered this    Lexi's Creations challenge 112 use your punches and dies

Thank you for looking and i hope this has given you some inspiration !

I'm sorry i've not posted for months but things happen in life that knock the stuffing out of us sometimes. My mother died last June and so i'm sure you will appreciate it has taken me a while to get myself back into thinking about making cards as i lost all interest. I have made the odd one for family occasions which i'm going to show you ...... now that i've got myself back into blogging!

The first one i made for my niece who went to work the summer season at "Camp America! it was a fantastic experience for her!

The next card was made for a friend who loves shoes ...what woman doesn't!!

The next card was made for another niece who also loves shoes!!

Another card for another niece ...... its from a Hunkydory kit ...they always come in handy, she loves horses and works in a stables so it was right up her street!

This next card was made for a nephew was from a stamp by "Little Claire designs"

This last card was made for our son ..... he loves "mini' cars" so was delighted with it!

 I have a friend that holds a weekly craft session so i decided to join them last week after missing quite a few weeks, i really enjoyed it was just what i needed to find my !

Thanks for looking ...... and hope to have some new cards to show you soon!
