Card and a box

Evening bloggers!

I know I was going to try and post at least once a week, but my life doesn't always go to plan and I haven't had any time for crafting for a while :(((

Yesterday, however, I crafted all afternoon and well into the evening so I have a few things to show you all - but not all tonight!

I bought my friend Barbara a necklace and bracelet set for her birthday and decided to have a go at making a box for it. This is my first attempt at a box and I think it came out quite well (even if I do say so myself). Anyway, I made a co-ordinating card too and here they are:

All comments are greatly appreciated.

I got the bug slightly after this and made another box with some little cards so I'll post this later in the week.

Thanks for looking

Top 3!! and a baby card

Woo hoo!! I made the top 3 over at Ladybugs crafts ink challenge blog with one of the cards pictured in my last post. Thanks Kerry! Glad you think I did justice with Nikki!! I do lurve my Nikki stamps!!

I was asked to make this baby girl card for a friend of a friend and she loved it - so I am entering this into the next challenge at Ladybugs crafts ink challenge blog . It's challenge no 10 and it's to make a baby card or project.

There's also a great hop to take part in so why not pop over and have a look!

Thanks for looking, Donna x

Nikki and others Birthday Cards

Hi there bloggers,

I am going to try to post at least once every week at least until I have my craft room, then hopefully more often!! so here goes with the first one...

I made these cards for my friend Angela a while back as she had a few female birthdays coming up. The first 2 feature Nikki stamps which you can buy from Ladybug Crafts Ink. These are some of my fave stamps!

Edit - Can I please enter this 1st card into Ladybugs crafts ink challenge blog - challenge9-anything-goes

This one is just a simple die cut silhouette, a sentiment and a few gems.

This last one was for Angela's 'Aunt Bub' who turned 90 recently.
I made this one quite floral as the more mature ladies seem to like these kind of cards and I always try to make cards that I think the person they are for will like. And she did!!

A Happy New Year to you all.

Till next time :)
