Thinking of you card

We got a phone call today letting us know a dear friend has passed away. After being asked by o/h to make a card I also made this Thinking of you card I have embossed down the left handside of the card and finished with a piece of ribbon and gems in the right hand corner -- I find these type of cards are so hard to make.

Cute Bear Birthday Card

This card is made from Cute Teddy Bear pack I bought from QVC at the beginning of the year and has been hidden under a few other crafting stuff for a while. It was good to make this - with the summer holidays and everyone going off on holiday.

General Bookatrix Card

This is the second Bookatrix Card I have managed to make today again using the Glitter Girls Bookatrix Board. I finished by also using the tag template on the reverse of the board.

Open Card

This is first time making one of these cards so I hope I managed to get the technique right. The background paper is off a pack I bought from Create and Craft a few Christmas's ago and the topper I have just recently bought of QVC and I finished the same with blue ribbon down the right hand side of the card. The only thing what to place in the centre - just the words "Merry Christmas " do you think or do you put an insert ????

Penguin Christmas Card

The next is this gorgeous penguin 3d Christmas Card size is A5 - I was lucky my sister is also addicted to crafting and she is able to buy alot more crafting goodies than I can, and therefore she kindly donated a couple of toppers to me.

Christmas Bookatrix Card

The first was this bookatrix card - used the biggest of the template and then worked my way down from the board for the other two. The embossed image on first background card is the style of the card bought. The second is green glitter card and the third pearl effect white card. The topper and wording topper are from a 50 toppers pack I bought of QVC and finished the same with ribbon and a gems.

I had a few hours crafting today

Hi sorry for the changing in background and layout - I am a typcial Gemini I am afraid always changing my mind -- I love Twlight and therefore I decided to get the background but you could not see the writing very well so off I went and changed template so you all can see what I write.

Well when I woke up today the weather was not being at it is best one minute gorgeous and sunny the next rain rain and more rain -- so I thought kids can trash the house and I am going to switch off and make a few cards --

Snowflake Christmas Card Challenge

I also been getting on with the Christmas Cards. The first is this gorgeous stamped image of a cute bear with the words "Merry Christmas" which I got free from a magazine last Christmas. I have coloured the same using pro-markers and finished with glitter on the rim of his christmas hat. The effect of my white background of the topper is made by using the Glitter Girls Majestic Board and again I finished with white glitter round the outer edge.

Special Days Card

Hi all with the summer hols and trying to keep two young children occupied is no easy task when not only do you try and think of ways to make the most of spending as much time together but also to try and get little ones so tired out so they go to bed which unfortunately for me without success. I am more tired than Marc and Chloe. I think known my luck it will only happen when they get to teengers will they discover what staying in bed is all about. So since today has been a horrible rainy day - I tired and managed to make a few cards.

Nothing too complicated is this gorgeous card of two little girls dressed as fairies. I finished the same with the words "Special Days" as this picture remains me of what it is like to have an older sister to take care of you.
