Can't believe how many birthdays are around this time of year! Anyway this one is for a friend who enjoys fishing with my OH, and they don't mind if they don't catch a lot. Found this one hard to do and I'm still not too sure about it, but hopefully he'll like it...
Not sure when I'll get to make another, finding spare time is becoming difficult there's always something more pressing. Watch this space...

After being quite pleased with the easel cards I thought I'd have another go. This is for a friends little boy, just about to turn 3. Was quite fun making this one! I think making kids cards are easier, pick a theme and away you go...

Commission Cards

A work friend asked me to make two birthday cards, and I was so excited to be paid for them! I decided to have a go at an easel card for the first time. So here's what I made...
Can't quite remember where the cupcake digi image came from, so if anyone knows please say so I can give them credit. The papers were from a magazine ages ago, the sentiments and gems were from stash. Have to say I was quite pleased with the result. One of the recipients texted my friend to say what a lovely card, the smile on my face was hard to miss!!

I really struggled to make a valentines card this year, my man isn't a fan of pinky girly cards (actually neither am I!) so I needed to find something and came up with this...
The papers, ribbon and wire were from stash, the heart punch was friskars I think and the lettering is from craft time. Simples! x

Blokeish Card!

Just a quick male card, very simple as my crafty mojo went on holiday I think!

Mums 50th!

It took me ages to do this card and I'm pleased with how it turned out. The template was created on word, I then cut this out and lightly tacked this to a card blank, then cut the card.

Ta da! I then found some lovely paper from the local crafty shop, (K&Co) and cut that out as well...
Ta Da! The flourishes on the paper didn't stand out enough so I heat embossed with a silvery colour... 

Needles to say the powder ended up everywhere!! Ok so once I stuck it all together it was missing something, so I ordered some mulberry paper flowers from Wild Orchid and added those, finally I had to add a butterfly!
I hope she likes!

In the attempt to be more organised with dinners and the shopping i decided to make a list to stick on the fridge. This was made by cutting some cardboard to size and i covered it in wrapping paper that i saved from a lush giftset, stickers for the heading and some foody embelishments which i'm unsure of where they came from! mounted on black paper. The peg is simply stuck with a lot of sellotape. Not sure if it'll get used though!!
Thanks for lookin! x

This card is for my Aunty & Uncle who very kindly donated their old curtains to us for our relatively new home. I've kept the colours fairly plain as their house is very minimalistic and almost show home like so it wouldn't look too out of place.
Thanks for lookin! x

Birthday Squares

Made this card the other day for my OHs sister in law. It took me ages to do, not because it was overly fiddly was just having one of those days where nothing turned out the way i imagined. Anyway, i cut out the squares with my new punch and stamped with some mini stamps i've had for ages. The sticky ribbon and sentiment was from stash and the paper was free from Lets make cards magazine i think.
Thanks for lookin! x
