I bought a cute little memory box cat die weeks and weeks and weeks ago.....

and hadn't got round to using it yet,
so thought I had better have a play! 
This was a really quick card... a digi-stamp sentiment, digi stamp hearts, cat die, 
tied ribbon, some glossy accents on the hearts, and hand embossed around the edge.
Easy - and I like it! x

Wedding card

Thought I would share a card I made recently, for a commission from a friend...

I was asked to make a card for her friends...who had been
cycling together around Madagascar!
I really thought that was worth including in the card.
I have had this digi image a while...sorry-I don't know where it's from.
I used a pink petticoat digi paper behind it,
as that was the blue they had used on the invitations they sent out.
I did the sentiment on the pc..  and added some pearls and liquid pearls.
The diecut came from a friend.
The ribbon was from my stash ... think I bought it in Abakhan - yonks ago! :)

Fathers Day

I made this recently for my Dad - for fathers day.
I knew what I wanted to do with this (freebie) stamp, as soon as I saw it!
I have stamped the image onto a chalked background:
 I used a cotton wool ball and some dovecraft chalks, which I have had FOREVER! :)
I embossed around the image, onto kraft card, then added a stamped deckchair...
which also came on the freebie stamp set.

I made this card in a very similar way -
this was a commission for a friend, for her children to give to their dad.
My friend has just had a baby, so I had to play about and jiggle to size this pram so that
it would fit perfectly with the freebie stamp I had.
I made the sentiment on the computer, as she specifically wanted
the word "Daddy" on there.
This card is also a lot taller and slimmer than the first card I made (above).

Gorjuss girls...

I made this card recently for a friend to give to her sister...
 and she loved it soooooo much, she asked me to make her one,
so she could put it into a frame.
So..... I made her one, and put it into a lovely wood / glass frame,
for her birthday, recently. She LOVED it!
As you will see, I used a gorjuss girls image,
a digi backing paper in her fave colour, pc generated sentiment
(obviously, I left this out, on her framed piece),
I punched the border piece with my boot-sale bargain border punch ( £1 !),
some punched butterflies and glossy accents on the hearts.
 I would like to entre this into the following challenges....
Glitter n sparkle blog - anything beginning with "b" (ends 8th June )
