The stamp came free with a magazine and all the papers were from a set that I got at a craft fair, unfortunatly I dont have the label so I dont know who made it! Anyway I hope you like it.

Im quite pleased with it. I wanted to make something special as its for her Mums 60th, but I think maybe I could have done better!
I used plain paper, card and lovely lovely ribbons and bows from my stash and gorgeous patterned paper from K&Co Sparkly Sweet and Papermania Sweet Nothings.
Im off now to go create more some wonders :) I am inspired today.

Im getting in early with my friends birthday card, I dont need to post it for another 3 weeks, but I think this layout and the images are perfect for her. I was so happy to finally use some of the Sweet Stack from DCWV and letters from the Honey and Hugs collection. Ive had them for a while but they are so pretty Ive been a bit scared of using them! I hope you like it, Im sure she will :)

CUTE! Well I think it is. Except for the gems in the middle of the flowers all the materials were from a Goody bag I picked up at a card demo a few weeks ago. Its from the Papermania Capsule collection. The Sunshine range. Its lovely to work with and if I had the money Id buy one of each.
Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

So no more stalling these are 10 things I would like to make this year.
1. A bag charm. I finally have the perfect bag, not too big, not too small, goes with everything, has the right number of pockets and so on. Now I just need to fancy it up a bit.
2. A 1 off tshirt. Nothing plain and boring like most of my wardrobe.
3. A special birthday cake and gift. The old man hits the big 6-0 this year and I love my Daddy so Id like to something special for him.
4. A collage for my bedroom wall.
5. A cookbook. One that looks great and then I want to actually use the recipes!
6. A Charm necklace / Statement necklace. I always see lovely necklaces but I never wear them so I figure if I make it I will love it and then wear it.
7. Something patchwork. It looks so cute.
8. Calendars for 2011
9. Homemade toiletries. This may just be a pipedream.
10 Sketch books, I want to draw, collage, design, photograph just for the love of it.

Keep your eyes open to see what changes I do make :)

This was such a lovely sketch to work with, I will definitly be using this layout to make other cards.Once again I got to use papers from my stash that I thought I would never use! My Mum loved it when I gave it to her, hopefully they will like it too. If I was making valentines cards I would probably make these again.
All the delicate flowers were free with a crafty magazine. BONUS.
Next up is my entry for the colour challenge on My Grafico
Brown, Olive Green and Pink. Im not sure who its for, it will join the stash in the draw for now. I used papers from K&Co and Buttons from Basic Grey.
Hope you like.

Its one of the cards I made for my Aunt, I think it would be suitable for 12 year old girl, I hope she agrees.
Paper, K&company sparkly sweet and the rest for my growing stash. Buttons Basic Grey.
On a sad note the craft shop in my town is closing in 2 weeks!!!!!!!! As the owners are retiring. So I like many other knitters, sewers and crafters in the area have been keeping them busy building up their supplies before the shop shuts, I have bought some papers, stamps and today I go bows, buttons and flowers. They are so pretty but I will down again many times in the next 2 weeks Im sure.

Its my Mothers day card, see I told you it was early! The text simple says MUM, in sparkly gold, only the best for my Mummy. Materials, Papermania, Doodle bug, MME and some from my stash.
I showed it to my Pops and he said it was lovely and very ladylike so suggested that I make one for my Aunts order. I didnt want to make it exactly the same so I changed it slightly, and came up with this beauty (Im not at all big headed)hahaha, hope you like them.

What I am most pleased about is finally being able to find a use for the bird paper, I never thought I would.
Sunday, 24 January 2010
Unfortunatly Im too late to enter it, but I love the card so Im posting it anyway.
Sunday, 17 January 2010
Im not too sure if I actually like this card much, my Mum thinks its great but she has to say that! Im going to work on it for a bit and hopefully post a version I am happier with later, this post will have a kind of before and after section. I do like the cat though :)
O and I flipped the background, but that was from a happy accident (I got the measurements wrong!!) I still like the cat.
