Another Man's Card

This is a similar card to the one I posted yesterday.

With a change of embellishments and sentiment it is a different card.

A card for the man in your life

I thought I would just whip up this simple card suitable for the man in your life.

I'm currently in the process of make a box of cards for a gift and thought this would be a good simple card to go in it.  Have made a few cards but unfortunately I seem to need a lot of them for birthdays at the moment so will just have to work harder.

Butterfly Birthday Card

I put this card together for my good friend Tina, whose birthday it was this week.  Happy Birthday, Tina.

I have only just got this Beautiful  Butterfly die for my big shot and I love it so you can expect to see more projects using it.

I have teamed the Real Red butterfly (Brights Collection Pattern DSP Stack) with a backing of Spice Cake DSP from the summer mini and an embossed mat in Lucky Limeade on a Naturals Ivory card base.  With the addition of some basic pearls and a spritz of shimmer mist it was ready to go.

Happy Birthday Bernice

It is my friend Bernice's 40th birthday this week (such a long time ago for me 'sigh') and this is the card I came up with.  I gave it to her at her party last night.  Hope you have a great day on the day.

I liked the look of the layers and the torn edge of the DSP, I have also wet and rolled the bottom edge of the black mat.  Have used a bittie button threaded with early espresso bakers twine that features in the latest mini catalogue and have also spritzed the card with shimmer mist made with champagne shimmer paint, I so love this stuff.

My Girls

Hi there, I know I haven't been here for a while but I hope to post more regular this year. Maybe you could call it my new years resolution lol.

I have completed this scrapbook page using a layout designed by Anna Mangnall for our Paper Divas Extravaganza that was held in December.  I love the colours that Anna has chosen and the use of the butterflies and the lovely cherry cobbler polka dot ribbon to finish it off.  Thanks for your inspiration Anna.

These are my two gorgeous daughters Anna and Ellen and was taken in July 2011.
