And even more commissions...

Thought I would show a couple more cards I have been
making... requests from my work colleagues ....
"Can I have a card...from my toddler son, to his fave nursery nurse, who is leaving nursery?"
Well, I thought I was going to be stumped with that request...
I thought and thought and decided I wanted it to have
something childlike on there, somewhere...
I eventually came up with this...
Papers from my minds eye.
Butterflies punched from new Martha Stewart punch.
Inked edges, matted and layered,
and hand drawn faux stitching.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges...
Love to Create challenge - For a child (this card is "for a child...  to give"... ends 27th May)
This is an A4 card.
"Can you make a card with a morrocan theme, for my sister? Oh, she loves bags too!"
Sentiment - computer generated.
Bag - pink petticoat image.
Paper - found on the internet.
Border... not sure, but I bought this one in a load of punched
 borders on a car boot sale last yr!
Butterflies,..again, Martha Stewart.
I would like to add this to the following challenges...
That craft place - dies and punches. (ends 8th June)
Papertake weekly - Paper piecing (the "40") (ends 27th May)
Chocolate coffee and cards - use a number (ends 31st May)
Both cards were extremely well received! ;)
I love that feeling,,, when you make someone so happy, with something you've made! xx

Engagement cards

 I made these recently...just felt like making some engagement cards for my 
ever-handy "box."

 I was inspired by a card I saw on Docrafts...
and made my own version. 
I drew a hand shaped template and chalked round the edge
to get the hand-print shape, added a large gem and a little gold promarker -
for the ring - and a computer generated sentiment. 
Finished the edges with a bit of rounding on the corners.

I would like to add this into the following challenges...
CAS on Sunday - pastel pretties (ends 24th May)
The corrosive challenge - use a sentiment (ends may 26th May)
My craft spot - invitations and announcements (ends 22nd May)
Sarah Hurley challenge blog - shades of blue (ends 26th May)
Chalk n stock - use chalk (ends 31st May)

This is a dovecrafts paper that I found in my stash on a recent clear out.
It was not quite big enough of a piece, to cover a card, so was about to be resigned
to my "bits of paper box" when this card popped into my head!
I found loads of scraps I'd forgotten I had!  Lol...
I printed on a sentiment, added a thin (hand-tied-bow) ribbon,
and Bobs-your-uncle!   ;)

I would like to add this to the following challenges...
Hiding in my craft room challenge - use those scraps! (ends 17th May) HIMCR97
Pumpkin spice - flowers (ends 18th May)
Use your stuff - flowers (ends 20th May)
Shopping our stash - scrap attack (ends 21st May)

Christening cards...again!

Wow! I have never had to make sooo many christening cards, before!
I think these two make about 6 already this year!
 This first one, is for my friends little girl...
Tillie Belle. 
I thought that such a pretty name, she needed a pretty card!
I used Nitwits bears,
Funky fairies gingham paper ,
Image from pc, faded so I could put the message on the top.
I got the phone call to say they loved it! ;)

This card was for a comission.
Again, image from pc,
paper from Funky Fairies,
punched butterflies,
matted and embossed around the edge.
