Just back from my holiday...

...So I thought I would pop on some cards I made before I went away.

 I made this for my card box...I just thought
the image was so lovely! 
I decoupaged their hats, shoes and butterflies.   x 

 I like these coffeee images
so I sized them ot fit 4 on the card.
I haven't added any sentiment yet.
Don't think I will on this one.
Just leave it as a blank card I think, for any message inside.  x

I made this for a friends little boy - who will be 2 in October...
How good am I? Onto my October cards in August!
I have started thinking about my christmas cards, but no definate plans yet.
I used some digi downloads that I got free on a website agggges ago...
"Old McDonalds farm"
I decoupaged the animals heads and used my pc to put the
little boys name and age on the image.  x

Set of "delightful birthday" cards

I liked the thankyou set so much, I decided to make a similar birthday set...

 I used pink petticoat image and paper on this card...
I printed it out a while ago. so I can't remember which kit it came from, sorry!
(Image from simply delightful set)
Little silver gems added,
and matted with black!

 Exactly the same as above, only I used the negative paper to the card above.

I matted the image and embossed the outside black mat...
on the card.
Dead easy.

For this final card, I used an embossing folder 
and some silver gems, with black oganza ribbon.

Thanks for looking! x

A set of thankyou cards

I need to make a thankyou card recently...
and ended up making a set!

Another two.

Just two for now...more later....

 I used embossed pieces from my big-shot, to make this one.
I also used a bit of ribbon, some pearl gems and
a craftwork cards sentiment.
Quick and easy to make.

This one is for brothers birthday...
He loves his laptop and his beer!I decopaged some parts of the card
and glossy accented the drips on the beer.

A couple of birthday male, one female...

Two cards, for two friends....

I made this one just a couple of days ago, for a friend whose birthday is tomororw.
I called her yesterday - she had recieved it through the post, so I made her open it!
I'm awful, I know!!! lol...
I like to see / hear a reaction though...
I designed this particularly with her in mind.
I watercoloured the image, and I drew, carefully ripped and
faux-stitched the heart.
The bunting is a digi element I have on the pc.
I used plenty of glossy accents and faux-stitched the edges of the card.
(She loved it!)

I got this fab image from La pashe last week...
I knew it would be great for a male friend whose birthday is coming up -
and he loves F1!
I didn't use all the decoupage on the sheet,
 as I only like a layer or two  maximum.
I did draw and make the bunting myself though...and coloured all those teeny little squares in!
It's his birthday later in the month,
so I'm hoping he will love it!
(sentiment is craftwork cards).

Cards for my "card-box"

I made these recently, just to have in my card -box.

 I don't like having to make sympathy cards,
but as soon as I saw this image, I knew it would make a lovely
"sympathy / thinking of you" card.
I decopaged some of the lilies and added a little glossy accents,
a pc-generated sentiment, a ribbon and some liquid pearls.

I don't remember where I got this image, but I absolutely
ADORE bleeding hearts... they are absolutely beautiful and are spring flowers.
I have 3 pink ones in the front garden
and a white one in the back garden. They are beautiful.
I thought the sentiment 'fit' with the image.
I put some lovely pale paper behind the image, which I got in a set
from a pound shop, years ago.

Two Anniversary cards.

It's my Mum and Dads Anniversary, today...

...and I made them two cards!!
Well, I made this card a couple of weeks ago,
as they are both very much "cat" people
and I like the sentiment.
But then I saw "Imag-e-nation" were having a sale.....

......and I saw this sheet...with the citroen on.
Many moons ago, when we were children (me and sis),
 Dad had citroen cars... we had a Dolly, a 2CV and  2CV6 special.
- One of them was "rhubarb and custard" colours!
I loved standing up in the back, with my head poking out the roof!
(In the days before you HAD to wear a seatbelt in the back!)
Anyway - I didn't use all the decoupage...I don't like too too much of it on one card.
I also used some G.A here and there.
This is the one I gave them in the end, 'cos it's so different.
(and they both loved it and had a little chuckle!)
