Tonights offerings....

I have been making some cards recently for a fair I was selling at.....

This first card is one of my favourites.
I can't remember where I got the image as I've had since I don't know when.
But I simply decoupaged the front flowers,
added some G.A to to middles of each flower
and finally embossed the edge of the card to make the image stand out a little more.

 I shaped the bottom of this card - freehand, and I REALLY like the effect.
I got this idea from QVC  a couple of weeks ago, when it was craft day.
They were showing a set of cards with this fancy-shaped, embossed bottom part.
I thought,"I can do that!"
so got out my Big Shot, some embossing folders
and cut myself a template for the shape along the bottom.
I think there will be more of this shape to come......

I was asked to make this card.
"Baking stuff for Grandma, please!"
These are digi-images, which I cut out and decoupaged some of
wih a bit of G,A for dimension.
Teeny little faux stitching drawn round the edge
of the gingham, for extra effect.
The reciever was very happy with this card...which makes me happy too!  xx

Wow... so many cards to make for March and April!

 So here's a dent in my load of card for this month.....
This cat card is quit plain and simple...
Pc generated sentiment, embossed round the edge of the image
and round the edge of the card,
then little gems here and there, with glossy accents on the cats eye.

 I was asked to make this Mothers day card...
"with Eidleweiss on, please!!"
i deoupaged and glossy accented the eidleweiss.
It's hard to tell on this pic, but the bottom part of the white card
is embossed with curls and hand-shaped and cut.
Inked round the edges just to give some definition.

A really quick card...
image printed and added pc sentiment.
Decoupaged the tray and glittered the rose.
Thanks for looking and for any comments you might leave. xx
