The birthday couple

Today I am going to share the cards I made for the birthday girl and boy, my son and daughter-in-law who's birthday it is today.

This one for Jonathan was designed using Serif Craft Artist Professional 2 and the "It's all about him" digi kit. He loves golf and photography.

This is Liz's card which I made using Craftwork Cards Vogue kit.

Thanks for stopping by

Two pretty girls

Has a lovely weekend. Friday night out for a meal with my bessie mates which was lovely. Saturday night reunion with my workmates going back 26years. Sunday out to lunch with my son , daughter in law and her parents as an early celebration for their birthdays which are tomorrow. 

Now a couple of cards I made last week.
For the first one I dug out one of my older stamps, Elizabeth Bell I think, and coloured it with copics.
I used Spellbinder dies for the mats and Sue Wilson dies for the leaves and flowers

For the second one I used one of the Clarity stencils, stamps (dog) and Distress Inks. The background is an acrylic gelli plate print.

Well that's about it from me today.
Until the next time

Live, Laugh, Love

Hello I'm back today to share some cards that I've created recently.

This first one is a brayered background and the balloons are Clarity Stamps. The flowers are from a versatile set I've had for a while but can't recall the make.

This second card was made to use up bits and pieces that were lying about on my desk
  apart from the actual images which I found in amongst my stash. Waste not want not.

This third and final one was a bit of experimenting with cosmic shimmer sprays and stamps from the set I used on the first card. Shame you can't see the lovely shimmer.

Think I'm up to date with my posting so I'll get back to creating.

Well don't know about you but I can't believe it is February. Well what happened to January then?  

Fortunately here in the West Midlands of the UK we  haven't been affected too badly by the snow, just a few light dusting which soon disappeared, just how I like it.  Hope all of you that have seen plenty of the white stuff have been able to stay safe and warm.

Today I am going to share with you a mirror that I made last week.
It's a basic mirror from Ikea which I covered with some Basic Grey papers, little black dress I think it's called. I then added the mannequin and flower from Craftwork Cards Vogue collection which co-ordinates perfectly. The little basque is a stamp that came with Craft Stamper magazine. Hope you like it as much as I do. Just have to find somewhere to hang it now.

I have also been having a play with my Gelli Plate this week. I have made up loads of colourful mono prints to use on future projects but here are a couple of cards I made up using the two of the prints.
For this first one I masked off the centre panel before pulling the print of the acrylic paint in order to stamp the butterflies and greeting.

For this one I stenciled the numbers and letters onto the acrylic print and used stamped butterflies and central collage image.

Well that's it for today but I hope to be back soon with some more cards.
Bye for now
