Sister…

Morning everyone. Simple card today, as I wanted the sentiment to be the focal point and to say it all really, It was my Sisters birthday last week and this was the card I made for her. The sentiment was from the link below, printed from a laser printer and foiled. Square dies are Sue Wilson noble squares, handmade pin, charm from my stash.

New baby…

Hi everyone. something different today. Thought I would try my hand at a wreath. These are huge in the USA, people think of wreaths as something for a sad occasion but they’re not. You can get them for weddings/Christenings, easter, christmas. Ive made one for a new baby boy. Very easy to make and decorate to how you like. Mine is made out of an 8″ ring with blue and white organza/voile fabric, glass bauble, clay baby, flowers and a new baby banner.

Valentines….

Hi everyone, I have another card to share, but before I give the details, I would just like to say, I appreciate you leaving comments and I know you are all entitled to your opinion, however, there is a fine line between an opinion and hurtful/unnecessary comments. I do, as we all do sometimes find it difficult to come up with new ideas all the time and sometimes I admit Im not 100% happy with them but I post them anyway. so if you are not keen on my design just move on and¬†go to someone else’s blog/page. Ok little speach over.
SO… now for todays card…
I was asked to do a Valentines day card, thought I would dig out my silhouette cameo machine which I cut the hearts with, although you could achieve this with heart dies. Also used Spellbinders labels 17, sentiment from my PC and then foiled. Paper is from site below called wedding garden, they have the most delish paper pads. Flowers from wild orchid crafts.
