Love U

It was hubby's birthday yesterday and this is the card I made for him.

Very simple but quite effective I think.

I got my brand new Stampin Up catalogue today - drool!!! There are some gorgeous new products in it. I can see I'm gonna have to sacrifice something (not sure what lol!!) so I can buy some new goodies!

On a personal note, my dad is out of hospital and mums op went well and she's on the mend. Such a relief I can tell ya!

Thanks for looking.

Get Well Soon

My pops is in hospital at the mo as he's having a bit of a hard time. He's asthmatic, has brochiectasis and a heart problem - dropping to bits bless him!

I made him this card to try and cheer him up a bit.

This card was based loosely around one I made at a class at Victoria's a while back, combined with the gorgeous owl made to look like a nurse!

Dad loved it and a few of the nurses have made comment on it too and have asked if I have a business card!! Better get one made sharpish eh!!

Thanks for looking.

Someone Special

OMG can't believe how long its been since I last blogged - slap my wrist!

I made this card for my SIL and I've made one 'for the box' too. I've got a box in my office for people to look through when they need a card.

Love the background paper - it's Stampin Up but I think its retired now :(

Anyhow, promise to try and be a better blogger but got a few family things going off right now so bear with me :)

Thanks for looking

Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge 36

Over at Ladybug Crafts Ink Challgenge blog, the challenge is to use your favourite stamp. It was a hard one but it had to be a Nikki and in the end I went for winestool Nikki - she's just sooo glamerous!

I used a heavy flocked background paper so I kept the rest of the card really simple and stuck to the b&w theme. I did make a layered flower for the top right corner but it looked too much so I left it off!

This is my second post today - I'm like a bus - none for ages and then two at once lol!!

Thanks for looking.


Birthday Celebrations!

Thought I would share a few piccies of the cards I received on my birthday last week.

This one was made made by my lovely daughter Chloe. I let her loose in my craft room and this is what she came up with.  Pretty good for 13!

This is me and Chloe - she hates having her picture taken and never smiles!! And yes she was trying to go bozz eyed too!

This is one of the posters Chloe made for me while I was at work. It was lovely to come home to. There were 3 dotted around the room bless her - she loves me really!

Thanks for looking.

Love You

I made this card for my husband for our 7th wedding anniversary which was last Saturday.

I made myself a circle template and sponged some pink and red ink through onto the white card and then stamped the hearts over the top, masking the first one before stamping the second heart. I then added some faux stitching around the edge to add some interest. The Love you sentiment and the hearts are from the same set and I think they're Papermania.

I've never made a bow like this before and was surprised to find out (after searching the 'net) that they're made in sections and stuck together and not tied at all!!! I think it's a better style of bow for a male card though.

Thanks for looking.
