Are you a Wonder woman too lol ???

Every sunday weather permitting I walk up to see my oldest sister. Well today she rang at 10am could I do two cards for her for today one for SIL and one for a grandson. Well mens cards and me are a struggle but anywhere heres what I came up with for the SIL I put his name on the card and a couple of motorbike images as he is into bike rallies and all his sons used to compete in them.The grandson I used one of Nikkys sheets I had made up with a shirt phone and camera on added a greeting .My sister liked them just hope the men do too.....The third card today is for a crafting buddy who has been through the mill healthe wise and had loads of operations to try and stem her cancer she is now at home but Im sure has a long fight in front of her so this is just to let her know myself and lots of other crafters are wishing her well.

Daughters 50th

Can hardly believe that my daughter is going to be 50 I cant be that old can I? lol.... This is the card Ive done for her it is an 8 by 8 I love these cards but my one regret is that I cant emboss them as they are too big for the Big Shot. Anyway heres what I did to this one I used the Ms lattice punch on some hunky dory card and put that on the bottom of the card added some dimensonal flowers from docraft and a butterfly ontop of a lace doily.The 50 is actually a key ring which I stripped down to use the number finally pleated some ribbon along the top. Bought her a lovely necklace which she choose made with real poppies so just need to find a surprise to add to it. Hope you like it and she does too.Thanks for stopping by. Hopefully I can visit you soon.

Friends Birthday card for next week

This is for my friend who will be 71 next week. The ornamental oval frame by die'sire is cut out from a photo her hubby sent to my phone of some leaves while on a walk round the river near us I just loved the colours so had to use it. I then cut Happy Birthday with the MS punch and the floral vine MS punch down the side I backed both of these with some orange card added some pansy decoupage to the oval frame and some bright orange ribbon finally found some initials I had with sunflowers on to do her name with.Wonder if she will reconise the photo?...

Well this nearly got Chucked !!!

I wanted to make a drawer card for my youngest granddaughter who will be 14 in December she informed me that her favourite colour is now yellow it is always changing lol.I only had a green drawer card kit left so I covered with yellow paper the drawer and the casing were no problem but for the life of me I kept putting the easel card part on the wrong
way!!! In the end I had to compromise and use a flower shaped card I edged this with yellow ink and embossed with the patchwork folder then added a desire die cut in yellow and a decoupaged fairy.I embossed the strip with happy birthday and a flower folder.added some handmade flowers in yellow and a few pearls.In the drawer is couple of the bracelets that are all the go and a key ring Ive just got to find something for her pressie now.Just hope she likes it after all the trouble......

Saw a card in my local craft shop with an acetate front and when I spotted some acetate with snow on had to have a go this is what I came up with. On the inside I used some lattice punched green glitter card on either side/Added a fizzy moon decoupage of a teddy in the window put a white doiley behind this then a robin circular christmas sentiment and a few snowflakes punched out in the glitter. all I added onto the acetate was a merry christmas circle .I think it works well do you?

A new window die ...

Saw Nikky had used a window die cut on one of her cards and found this lovely one on Cutting edge crafts so had to have a play The first is a Thank you card for a fellow crafter and used pearlised card and added some shiney pattenered card behind with flowers and buttons to finish. So I then thought it would come in handy for Christmas cards the so I cut the window die out in shiney red card this time the first I embossed with snowflakes and layered with blue card and added a decoupaged topper.. I used the Ms woodland branch punch down the side The second I layered onto shiney red card and added a topper on the sill and used the MS lattice punch down the side. Im pleased with the result what do you think?
