What a horrible day!

Hi everyone, I think the best place to be today is indoors crafting!! I have finally managed to get my pics onto the computer now so here are some of the cards I made over the last few days.

This is a pyramage off of the Popcorn Bear Birthday CD.

I was asked to do a 'flashy card' by a friend so I'm hoping that she will be pleased with this. The pics came from a QVC Kanban Male set and also the paper which has tyre prints over it was also from there.

A gorgeous pic which I hope will be greatfully received!

The papers are from a HOTP pack which I just adore using as they give plenty to mix and match with. The flowers are from my stash!

I was kindly sent this picture and hope my friend likes it!

Again I have used some HOTP papers. The black flowers are Papermania and I have centred these with metallic brads.

Another Popcorn Bear but this time from the Floral CD. Again it is a pyramage. I have used my glue pen to highlight the edges of the tulips and then glittered with Glamour Dust (silver). Also did the tulips around the edges as it just gave it a bit of a lift. The corners are made using a Cuttlebug die. This is for a very dear friend of mine.

I dont believe it!!!

Not much to write today but just wanted to let you know that I was getting ready to put pics of cards made over the weekend, was taking photos and camera went flat! Have had to put batteries on charge and had no spares to be able to continue so will upload them tomorrow. Hope you think they were worth the wait x

Crop Day!

Well today was fun! Went to the crop and managed to make 5 birthday cards and 2 christmas cards. What a result!!! Can't wait to see everyone's faces when I give the cards out, I hope they like them as much as I do. Got lots of ideas from others and thoroughly enjoyed all the chatting and just relaxing and doing what we like doing best!! Still got plenty of Christmas cards to get done including a couple of commissions so I think I may just be doing some more tomorrow after my weekly visit to the supermarket!

Good evening if you are reading this. Not a good day for cardmaking today as all I managed to do was print off 2 inserts for cards already made!! Spent the day trying to get some more Christmas shopping with my daughter who had a development day. Quite successful in the end! Looking forward to tomorrow as we are spending the day at Sophie's school at a crop run by one of our local craft shops (Scrapbook Sisters). Lots of cards will be made, tea drunk and cake eaten! xx

Hi everyone. Finally decided to try and sort a blog out as I spend so long reading other people's blogs and viewing their cards I thought it only fair that you should see some of my cards I've been making lately. At the moment I am working my way through all our christmas cards to send out, half way there and running out of time, and I've still got the personal family ones to do!! Will try to update as often as I can but please forgive me if I dont as I need to get into the habit of doing this!

I was asked to make a selection of christmas cards for an old work colleague and I thought this pyramage image was quite cute. It is printed from a disk and I have used Docrafts snowflake paper as backing and Kanban 'Merry Christmas' card as a separate layer under the pic. The round dots are from Craftwork Cards. I have got them in a variety of colours and use them all the time!!

I must go now as I really need to feed the children and then me, my daughter and mum are out for a crafting evening at the local children's hospice!! Bye for now x
