Nearly a year! eek! - Wedding card

Morning, its been almost a year since I last wrote a blog post! eek! So today I am back, I have blown off the cobwebs and about to post a recent card make!

So a wedding card, the image is from LOTV (Digital) the papers are from Lidl! (Who would have thought it!) and the ribbon, flowers and pearls are from my rather full craft room!

A  nice easy card to gently slide back in to blogland!

Minis and scooters!

Morning, back to share some recent makes. Things have been a little manic as we are decorating most of our home! Also I have my first craft fair of the year this weekend!! 

So todays cards were made from a hunkydory card kit that Paul bought for me from the range, its one of those you see and comment about then don't think about again but good old Mr B had sneaked it into the trolley! These kits are fab and the only thing that bugs me is sometimes there is a fair bit of waste, but not with this one, for one of the mini cards I even used the picture from the papers and worked it all in!! 

So what do you think? 

Thats all for today!

Easter milk cartons.

Morning, back to share some cute little easter boxes, these were made following a tutorial by you can get the info here. Each box contains 6 little eggs and is held together with an easter themed bunny bulldog clip! I love how they turned out and made 5 for my easter fair! 

So easy to make and whilst Sam doesn't use acetate, I didnt have a punch small enough for the window so just did one window and used a small piece of acetate to stop them falling through the window. 

Thats all for today!

Butterfly Kisses

Morning, promise I have not been MIA! just been really busy redecorating after swapping the bedrooms around! Just need to put everything back in my sons room and then we are done .... at least for today! The spare room will then become my craft room! 

So onto todays card, this was a recent order, a birthday card for my step sister. I dug out an older digi kit that I printed a long time back and got cutting. 

Cardmaking kit - Paper creators
(includes image, papers & sentiment)

For my dad .... on Mothers day

Morning back to share a recent order, this one a different one to me, I was asked to make a horse themed card (but modern not boring) It was for mothers day .... and the sentiment was to say "To my Dad on Mothers Day" I love how it turned out! 

The image and papers are all from a kit I purchased a couple of years ago called E.I.E.I.O which is basically a farm themed kit. I printed the papers off and enlarged the horses head and decoupaged it. 

Thats all for today! 

Normal service is resumed. Back tomorrow!

Morning back to share another recent make, I should have shared this on wednesday but again running late. Things have been manic as Paul is offshore so running the kids around and puppy classes and kids after school activities are all stealing any time I have! 

This one again is pink! (I know I know I promise some other colour soon!) Still continuing on the same theme of LOTV papers and image and using up off cuts too!

Morning, back to share a card I should have shared on tuesday! This one is nice and bright .... I would love to say it reminds me of spring but as I type this it is currently -2 degrees and snow on the floor! Another quick and easy card using up some freebies from a magazine.

Just for you

Morning all, back with another card to share. This weekend I finally had the chance to get a proper look at Etsy, does anyone else use it? Anyway I have a few cards listed up on there so will see how it goes! First craft fair coming up at the end of March so need to get cracking with stock! 

Todays card I LOVE! the colours all just work and I love the faux stitching and I love the topper and I just love it!

For you with much love!

Back with another mothers day card, this year I stayed away from the typical *Happy Mothers Day* sentiment, over the last 2 years more people have asked for a more general sentiment like the one on this card. Happy Mothers day can also be added if someone wants that too. 

Available to purchase from Etsy.

Morning, back to share another mothers day card, I seem to be stuck in a bit of a pink rut at the minute, and for those who follow my blog and have done for a while will know that is so not me!! I am sure normal service will resume shortly. 

This card was made up from bits of leftover papers that I had already used on previous cards, layered them all up and it turned out like this!

Love you a latte

Morning, back to share a valentines order. This one I actually remembered to take a photo of, I was in a hurry to get some of them posted and sent out so they could arrive in plenty of time and realised after that there was a baby card and about 5 valentines cards I hadn't taken photos of! Doh!!! I was asked for a card, they are both coffee lovers so this fitted the bill! I dig out my stampin up coffee cups, some fancy pants papers and made this! 

Thankyou for looking, back tomorrow to share another card.

Happy Everything!

Morning all, back with another card to share. This one is just like yesterdays card using a CD I purchased ages (like well over a year ago) and never used! They are decoupage but I only used the base layer to keep the quite flat to post because you know those postage charges keep on rising!!! 

Again I love the colours on this one. It is very much a *me* card.

Love you!

Morning back with another valentines card. This one is different to my usual ones as instead of an image the image is writing! 

Now pretty much everything on this card was free!! the papers and sentiment (image) were part of a freebie in a recen tmagazine, the ribbon I was given by a friend who could no longer use it, and the card candy was also given to me. the black card from my stash and the card blank was the only thing I purchased! 

I would love to enter this card into the Daring Cardmakers Feb inspiration challenge.
