This pretty card was made by my 9yr old daughter. She really loves card making along side me.
She used a sketch as the basis of this card, but the colour way and stamp she chose for herself, using the cardstock and papers from 'our' stash. 
 I think she has stamped the image beautifully, she was so desperate for me to post it on my blog.

Love is in the air !

With Valentine's Day, nearly here ( surely it was just Christmas yesterday ! ), it put me in mind of weddings, so I have been making a  wedding card.

The backing paper and images for this card are digis from Little Musings.
For the base card, I used My Craft Studio Professional to tile the rose image, and to fade it slightly, and printed onto pearlised card. I then printed the original image for the matting and layering. I decoupaged the bridal dress and suit, and added the sentiment. The card and ribbon were from my stash.

Sorry about the poor lighting in the photo.

One for the Men

I always get a bit stuck, when it comes to the men, so for this card I dug out some stamps that I had never used, they are from the Crafter's Companion Mens collection, the spotted paper is from my Funky Hand Happy Happy Birthday cd rom and the sentiment is from Sentiments 4 U

2 in one day !

Here is card number two for today, I am doing an online study course and the server is down, so it has given me blogging time.

 I really love this shape of card, I got it from a demo by Leanne from Crafters Companion.
The papers I have used for this engagement card are from my stash and also from my Funky Hand Craft the year Away cd rom, as is the topper. I used my Cricut for the lettering.

Sooner than I thought !

I am back sooner than I thought I would be !

Here is a card which I had to make in a hurry, so it is not one of my better ones !
The papers and template are by the fabulous Funky Hand from their Happy Happy Birthday cd rom.
I cut out the windows and added acetate and for dimension, I added the number plate and tyres.

Thanks for looking.
