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......

Card for sisters grandson

My sister wanted a card for one of her grandsons so I thought it was time to get The Big One out found this car and as all blokes like cars heres what I did. i embossed it with the waterfall which I always think can look like either rain or snow.Used the MS Happy Birthday punch which I backed with silver card Added a couple of shaped cut outs with stars and then the golf car.Finally added a black lace down the side twisted. Cant say Im a fan of mens cards unless theyve a hobby but think this will do the trick......
