Back again

Blimey, can't believe its been so long since I last posted (not that I have many visitors, but for those of you that do visit - sorry for not putting stuff on sooner) time flies when you're having fun & I seem to really be enjoying life at the moment, my new job is fabulous, the people are really friendly and I seem to be settling in really well.

Hope you like this card, it was made for another of my nieces birthdays, and pretty much everything is stampin up, well, the card (bashful blue and perfect plum), and the flower and sentiment stamps, the other bits were from my stash, the card sort of created itself, but was based on a card I saw over at Kristina Werner's blog it was the Make a Card Monday for 9th June.

Next up was the card I made for my dad for fathers day - again using the bashful blue card and Chocolate Chip inkpad (god I love their inkpads - I've even learned how to open & close them without covering myself in ink!). Its a simple and stylish card which I made right at the last minute (11 am sunday morning!). Anyway, I think this is one of my favourites purely because its soo simple. Hope you like.

Proud Mum

My little girl has posted her first Youtube video of her jammin on her guitar, I think she's brilliant, but then I would I'm her mum. Please go and see her here & form your own opinion, I'm sure she'd love the hits on her video.

Money Card

Well, it's my nieces birthday today & she's 17 so doesn't really want a little girlie card.

I've had this sheet with the jeans picture on it for ages, it was a free download, but I'd never managed to find a use for it. I backed it onto some card & cut out the size I wanted for the front of the card, then I used a sharp craft knife to cut along the edge of the pocket, then I glued it to the front of a card blank (making sure to not glue too close to the cut area). Stamped greeting onto card cut using nestabilities & mounted onto another piece of card again cut with nestabilities, then put this onto the main card using foam pads. Finally put £10 in pocket.

I really hope she likes it!

Hooray for Stampin Up!

As you may have guessed, I love their stuff, it makes it so easy for me to create a card and match everything.

The image in this card is one that I received as part of some PIF candy & I love it (its a House Mouse stamp), but the card, stamps and ink I've used are all stampin up (bashful blue & chocolate chip). I even used some of the chocolate chip ink on the cocoa in the cup to help tie it all in.

Hope you like?

I will definitely try and create more, regularly, and I'm trying to use card sketches to help me use pieces I've had in my stash for ages but haven't managed to find a place to use them (sound familiar, I think we all have them).

Anyway, take care all, happy blogging & happy stampin!
