Happy Birthday..

Good Morning,

I hope you are all well and keeping warm.

Today's card is another one I made last Sunday at the Virtual Craft Day!  

It is for a member of a Craft Club that I go to every month.

I have used:

Stampin Up coloured card.
Image is from Meljen Designs and coloured with copics.
Backing paper was a scrap I had left which had been printed from the computer.
Sentiment was created on the computer and then cut out with a nestie.
Dancing Tulips Die by Memor Box.
Border was made with Stampin Up punch.
Gems from stash.

Thanks for looking.

Christine's Digi Showcase Week 28

After a short break, I am pleased to say that we are back with Christine's Digi Showcase.  We are now on Week 28 which is "Mushroom Living".

 I really enjoyed making this card and the mushrooms were really easy to colour.

Don't forget to pop over to Christine's blog  to see what the rest of the team have made with this  fab image. 

I coloured the image with my copics.
I used distress inks for the sky and grass.
Stampin Up coloured Card for the borders and the die cut (Chloe Stem) Memory Box.
Also for the Butterfly (MS punch).
Paper is a digi scrap I had but not sure where from.
Nailheads were stuck using my Kandi Kane Wand.

Thanks for looking.

I hope you are all keeping warm indoors. I am sure most of you have got snow by now.  We had snow on Friday and closed our school a little early, also my daughter came out a little early too as her school shut.  It started to melt a bit yesterday but it has been snowing all day since 8.30 a.m.  and it's still snowing.

As the Bristol Palyday was cancelled due to the weather, some of the girls had a virtual craft day which I joined in and made 4 cards.

This is one of them:

I used Stamping Up coloured card
Pink Petticoat papers
Image is from Di's Digis coloured with Copics and background distressed with distress inks
Fishtail cut using a straight bit of card and square nestie to cut the fish tail then embossed
Sentiment created on computer and cut out with Stampin Up punch
Nailheads stuck with Kandi Kane Wand

Hope you like it.

25th Wedding Anniversary Card

Happy New Year to you all, I hope you are all well and recovered from any hangovers!  I went back to work today, which was very hard, especially as I haven't been in since 14th December.

Today I thought I would show you a card I made for my Hubby for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in November.  I decided to take the photo twice, once on a white background and once on a red background. I think it looks better on the white , what do you think?

The Easel template is from Cardmaking Paradise, see link in my sidebar.

I cut the hearts on my Cricut and backed them with Cheery Lynn French Lattice Small die.

Marianne Creatables die Champagne Glass.

Cheery Lynn Fancy Flourish Die.

25 was cut on my Cricut.

Roses from Stash.

Thanks for looking.
