Mum and Dads Anniversary

This was quite a quick card, once I had had the idea...
I was looking through my paper stash for a paper for this card
 and came across this dovecraft paper.
It is part of a wedding set.
I used my cherry lynn flourish in cream, a couple of docrafts paper blossoms
in charcoal., and some Martha Stewart punched butterflies
ontop of the sentiment - which was stamped with a docrafts stamp.
I love that rubber stamp, and I hadn't used it for ages!
A couple of silvery pearls finished the card off!

A baby!!

My friend had her baby - on the same day our other friend got married!
So, it was a double celebration!
I made this card for the baby - and that's Wellington the teddy in the corner.
I used my new sizzix alphabet die...wingo zingo, for his name.
I have had the gingham paper for yonks..along with about 9 other colours, which I
don't want to use up..I love gingham! (but I think gingham works sooo well for baby cards)

A big one! (but don't tell everyone!)

My friend recently had a big birthday...
but she didn't want the world to know and remind her...
so this card I made for her, had her big number on...but little! lol! I LOVE that stamp - it was a freebie on a card-making mag earlier this year.
This is the first time I have used it...
and I paper-pieced each slat on each house.
I used some lovely pastel docrafts papers.
(and I had to add some butterflies to this card.)
I spent a long time on this card and loved every minute.
She's worth it ;)

Comissions for ladies...

Wow! Didn't realise it had been so long since I last blogged!
 It's been a busy time, and the summer hols are almost over! Boo hoo!!!  ;(
So, I thought I would get myself into gear and show a few more of my cards.
The first one is for a friend, to give to her friend, for her birthday.
I have had the image for ages... sorry, can't remember where it's from.
I matted it onto my minds eye paper,
added some MS punched butterflies and
a couple of co-ordinating paper flowers at the bottom.

This card is A4 - for a friends Mum, or Mam, as she wanted.
The brief was... "She likes bags and flowers. "
So, she got a bag and a my fave colours!
Glossy accents plays well on this card...on the sunflower middle and
the little heart tag, and the handbag handle.
MS punched butterflies again - that's a firm favourite!
