2 Birthday Cards

Hi Folks,
Hope you all had a great Easter weekend, weather was good, did some gardening but plenty of relaxing here for me. Visited the seaside on Saturday which was great, blew the cobwebs away I can tell you.
Well I did start 2 cards the tall end of last week and have finally finished them today, but not really certain about the square one as it did not turn out the way I planned but never mind.
I have used a rectangle card for the first one, with 2 co ordinating patterned papers, dark brown card stock, vanilla card stock, flowers, sentiments, card candy, ribbon and one of those lovely digi stamps.
The second one I have used white card stock to make the square card, 2 co ordinating patterned papers, deep pink card stocking, vanilla card stock, flowers, card candy, ribbon, sentiments and another of those lovely digi images.
Well I will leave you to decide on what you make of these one and until next time, do take care and happy crafting, lol

Challenge Week 31 - Pink and Sweet

Hi Folks,

And its another glorious day, have not been doing much crafting, just enjoying my garden in sunshine, yeah!!! I certainly dont know whats going on with my blog, I keep deleting the extra lines but they keep re appearing, doh!!!

Thought that I would make a card though, decided to have a go at this challenge so I could have a play with a new digi as this is a side of stamping that I am new to.

I have used a white rectangle card, black card stock, pink card stock, 2 co ordinating patterned papers with pink in, 1 pink ribbon, 2 pink buttons, 2 pink flowers, 2 black and white brads, sentiments and a very sweet image coloured with whispers pens and I have added silver glitter to make the image even more angelic.

Also it is one of my favourite layouts and am rather pleased with the whole effect, much better with the glitter than with out, as the pink of the dress seemed too in your face I felt.

Hope you all have a great Easter weekend, do take care of yourselves and I should be back next week with a few more cards if I am lucky, until then, lol xx

Hi folks,

What lovely weather we are having and we are set to have a few more days of it yet. This afternoon I thought I better make the brotherinlaws birthday before I forget it!

I have used white card stock to make a bigger rectangle card, two different coloured card stocks, 2 co ordinating patterned papers, one ribbon, sentiments, flowers, gems and a lovely male image of a young male relaxing. I have used a previous challenge layout for my card design.

I hope you like this one, pleased with the outcome of it. Do hope you have a great weekend as thats it for me this week and until next time do take care and happy crafting, oh and remember if you are going to enjoy the sunshine take precautions please, lobster look is not a nice feel, lol

LMC NO 114

Hi Folks,

Today I decided I would make this challenge card, found it difficult, it seems the less there is the harder it is for me for some reason.

Not sure about this one for this reason, I have used white card stock to make the square card, pale blue card stock, deep pink card stock, 2 co ordinating backing papers, cuttlebug, spellbinders scalloped circle shape die cut, buttons, gem stones, flower, brad, sentiments and my favourite image at the mo.

I have tried to keep this delicate and girlie for a change, until next time do take care and happy crafting, lol

Mini Easter Egg Boxes

Well Hi there Folks,

Hope this finds you all well, have had a busy weekend playing hubbie's assistant out in the garden, you know what its like as its that time of year to do repairs in the garden ie fence posts /panels and that's what we have been doing, lucky enough the weather held out for us.

But today I decided to make some easter gifts for my nephew and nieces. I have used white card stock to make the square boxes which I have filled with mini eggs of several varities. I have then used dark chocolate and light chocolate card stock, one ribbon, 1 large easter egg stamp heat embossing and coloured in the same chocolate shades, biege flowers and dark brown gem stones.

These I made as a fun idea as, well my nephew and nieces are not really that young and well I thought they might like a few chocs from their daft ole aunt, hahahaha!!

Until next time, do take care and happy crafting, lol
