This week's biggest Loser!

A card I made for my Slimming World group. Each week we have a Slimmer of the week and everyone takes a peice of fruit etc for the box. I always take a card and this was one I made for last weeks winner.
The stamp is from the 'Flippin' series of stamps.
I cut an aperture in the front of the card and then stamped the front and back of the image onto card. Coloured it with Promarkers and then suspended it in the middle using string.

This little card turned out so pretty and fresh looking :-) It is for a friend who had a little boy three weeks ago. I used a new stamp that I bought from Rheged and coloured it with Promarkers. Then I layered it on a nestie, added ribbon, flowers, brads, a little heart and a sentiment. I rounded the corners of the card and used Dandelion and Daisy co-ordinating backing papers.
Hopefully I will get to see the little fella before too long otherwise I may need to turn it into a first birthday card! Lol

Rainy Days

What a damp morning it was but so humid!
I made this card for a friend who was unwell and used my new Rachelle Anne Miller stamp 'Rainy days'. What a lovely stamp it is. I coloured it with Promarkers and then added some 3D Clear gloss to make it look wet. I added some stick on gems as rain and layered it all on nesties (pinched from my mum)

Let's hope the weather cheers up soon! Happy Crafting :-))

I'm back!

Well what a long time I have been missing! Life has just got in my way lately and there are just not enough hours in the day.

I hope life has been good to you all. We had a dreadful month or two in which my beautiful aunty Dot was very ill and unfortunately we lost her on 23rd July. She was a huge part of my life and it is still unbelievable that she is gone, but I am glad that she is no longer suffering and I know that she went knowing we all loved her hugely. We have a wonderful family.

I have spent many hours over the past few months riding my new horse Fever and getting to know her. She is absolutely super and such fun!So unfortunately card making has been pushed to Saturdays during the two weeks when hubby is at work and I can go and play with my mum for a few hours (well actually usually about 12hrs lol)

This is a card I made for a friends wedding this week:

The flower stamp is one I have had for ages and is a Stamptivity stamp, coloured with Promarkers.
I also used the stamp to create this sympathy card for my cousin after aunty Dot died:

This card I made for our friend's wedding anniversary. My mum and dad bought me some distress inks for my birthday and this was the blue one. I also used my mum's Cricut to create the heart and the letters G & J.

So apologies for being missing so long and I promise to try and get some more cards uploaded soon. Take care and Happy Crafting!
