I love the bottoms....

...of these cards. I saw them a while ago on qvc (from
craftwork cards, I think!) and thought..."I can do those myself!" 
...So I did!! ....

I made this card for my mother-in-law as her birthday is coming up. 
I made the embossed background myself, with my helix board. (dead cheap from the works!)
I cut the label shape on my big shot, with my newish x-cut dies, and chalked
just inside the edges. The cat and cushion are decoupaged. 
Punched flowers, leaves and butterflies finished this card. 

I didn't make this for anyone in particular...
I bought some lovely stampin up stamps at a car boot sale a while ago and finally got round
to stampin and colourin a few...and this is one of those stamps!
I added a martha stewart punched border and embossed the background myself.
Thanks for looking!

I've made some cards at last!

Long time, no blog!
I haven't had a lot of mojo recently, 
but I think I'm having a come-back now...

 I was asked to make this card...
for a 14 yr old boy who  loves footie and almost any sport. 
You can't tell, but I have used glossy accents over his name and age, so they stand out a bit.
I'm told he loves the cards I make, so lets hope this is no different!

I also made this for a colleagues mum...
" I need it to say Mam, and have shoes and handbags on please!"
I used one of my first kraft cards for this one as I love pink and brown together.
The wide, gold ribbon is organza.
I printed the words on the image, from my pc and added
some gems and a fancy edge to finish the card.
Thanks for looking and any comments you might leave. xx
