6 x 6 Swing Card

Firstly can I apologise for the photos. It's is throwing it down today and very poor light. I tried to take it in the bay window, But I had the light behind it.
I spotted this template whilst blog hopping and needed to try it.... as you do!! I think next time I will add a verse to the inside of the swing bit! Images from The Clipart Fairy again! but used my own backing papers that are stored on my computer

For a 3 mth old baby to give to his Daddy!

I was at a loss at what to do for this one. Then the clipart fairy came up trumps again! The interactive card is supposed to be for a new baby, but the banner on the front was left free of text, so I was able to insert Happy Birthday. With a little bit of clever wording..............Voila! This one is also for his Daddy but from his Mummy! From the forever friends cd

We heard recently that a friend has to have a kidney and part of her bowel removed, so this is for her.................I just hope it's nothing more sinister!

A New Baby Girl

Using papers from the clipart fairy again. The toppers on the front are templates from the book a easel pages. I turned them around the other way and layered them to give a bit more dimension

A cherry on the top

I had a 21st card to make, and Zoe apparently used to work in a cake shop, so this image, I think, was made for her. It is a digi image from Victoria case.
I thoughly enjoyed colouring this, but next time I'll print it just a bit bigger!! The papers and the frame is from The clipart fairy and is from the Bohemian range.

A TRIPLE easel card

Ir occurred to me last night..... Why not a triple? We've done a single and a double. So I got up very early this morning with it buzzing in my head and had a go. I hope you like!

Ooooo La La

I have a customer who only ever orders these and I am getting to dread her ringing up. I am sure she think this is all I can do!! I would have loved to have a free reign and do her a card or two with the new images from The clipart fairy. I am sure she wouldn't have been disappointed!

1st Clipart Fairy Challenge

As I am really into Wendy's graphics at the moment I thought I aught to enter. I used the papers and heart from Country Chic - Mothers day and the little fairy from another set. The plaque and the text are freebies from Wendy- thank you Wendy!
Oh and I think I should mention I did give the colours a tweak as usual, just to be a bit different!

As I hadn't got round to making OH a Valentines card it gave me a nudge!

A double side easel card

I caught the tail end of a demo on C&C yesterday and instead of making a single side easel card she made a double!! It was easy enough to work out the dimensions, and as I had an order for a 50th birthday card I thought I would try it. I'm very pleased with it and think I'll be making more for SPECIAL birthdays!!

Pretty in pink!

All these were ordered by the same person. And she knew exactly what she wanted. Looks like she has a spate of 60th and 65th birthdays coming up. The pink one at the top I've entered into our inspirational challenge in the forum. It needed to be something from a crafting cd. So I used the Seraphina & friends papercraft cd and chose this lace paper as a vocal point.

Another Heidi card........I love it

I just love colouring this image, I have now done it in four colourways......and all for different ages, ranging from aged 40 up to aged 70....................All men like the same thing me thinks! lol The next two are orders using a couple more stamps. I think I have overdone the 80th card and made it a bit fussy, but several people have said it is fine. so who am I to argue!
