Three more "Silhouettes"

All in different colours................My favourite is the coffee and cream

A new blog background

And a few more cards to show. I've just treated myself to a Craft robo, still playing with it as yet. But already realise it wont cut what I call quality card.

I tried to cut black card with it yesterday......................and it wasn't what I call particularly thick............NO Joy! So did a cut on white card that I use for decoupage and did a reverse silhouette. I used a font from WWfancyhats as a template.

My friend wanted a photo of her grandson on his 1st Birthday card so I did a train with him driving. I had to alter the image slightly, but I think it's worked out well.

An anniversary card next with a cute topper and my lovely die cut flourish again.

Then SHOES............I've made a good buddy on the imag-e-nation forum. She sent me some goodies and a load of toppers she had made. They are all fantastic and so imaginative. She gave me some good ideas. I took a template from a shoe she had done and had a go at making my own...........................I love the effect!

Wedding bookatrix

Another order phoned in today......................No peace even on a Sunday!

This weeks orders

Had phone call Thursday morning at 8 oclock.....................not even out of bed although I was awake. It was a local hairdresser who I had made cards for before. She wanted two cards.........A 50th birthday for Gary and an engagement card. I had made an engagement card for her before and as it was for someone else she wanted it similar.

Then about an hour or so later I had another phone call from a client of hers who wanted an anniversary word of mouth is getting around.

The good luck card for Scotland is made for a friend whose ex girlfriend is moving to Scotland........I think there will be a few tears shed there!!

The Flower fairy is just something I wanted to do from my new flower fairy disc. ( for my stash)

Bev has some blog candy up for grabs

A challenge card and a few others

This is my Challenge card from Karen J's challenge on imag-e-nation forum, It didn't win ( surprise surprise!) But it was different. I hadn't tried this fold before. It was made from a full sheet of A3 card. I think it's called a top diamond!

The baby card I saw on ebay so I made my own template and made it A5 with a top fold ( I cut A3 sheet of card in two long ways) I don't think it needs anything else I love the simplicity.

The wedding bookatrix is an order as is the bra card.

My April cards

No orders at present so got going on my April birthdays. One for an elderly Aunt, and one is for my son who will be 40 this year!! My God! Makes me feel old.

Then I bumped into a friend yesterday who had a prem baby on Christmas day at 24 weeks. The little might Lenny weighed in at just over 2lb!

He is now home and is thriving, weighing 6lb 3oz

Poor Maggie (the Mum) is 44 and a grandmother herself. But she is over the moon with the little one although as she said Knackered!!!

Well I couldn't not make a card could I? He's having an unofficial birthday on the day he should have been born which is Friday 3rd April. Awwwwwwww
