Teacher Birthday

A simple 'George' card for a teacher's birthday. I used glossy accents on the apples, promarkers and Papermania paper.


I made this card for our school staff to sign for a member of staff who is retiring from our Hearing Impaired Unit this Christmas. I used British Sign Language to write the sentiment!

Two card orders.

I was asked to make 2 cards this week, one for a birthday in Las Vegas at Christmas and one for a Christmas card for a carpenter! I could have put Mary and Joseph on it but I used a George download instead!! lol

New Home

A new home card using Hobby Art stamps, clear embossing and a brayer. I love the effect of the resist embossing on this one.

Papermania Bauble Stamp.

I'm going to use this for my special cards this year, I've only made one so far! Stamped and embossed with glitter powder and highlighted with stickles.

This year's Xmas cards.

This is the card I've been making for xmas this year, simple stamp (Inkadinkadoo - English Robin), coloured and glittered. I've made 15 so far but 5 got sent off to soldiers in Afghanistan so have still got loads more to do! I've been varying the colour of the greetings and snowflakes.

Penny Black Saturday Challenge # 77

I had to make a Birthday card this week so thought I'd enter it into this challenge as I liked the sketch that Beth has done. I used a stamped image (from a friend, many thanks) called 'Amore' which I coloured with Promarkers. The flowers are glittered with a sakura pen. I used Basic Grey 'Eva' paper for the patterned squares edged with a pink inkpad and the pink ones are embossed with the 'Snowflakes' folder on the Cuttlebug. These are random dots and not snowflakes at all. I used square gems to embellish the image. The sentiment from Craftwork Cards was mounted on 5 green circles to make a flower. I used a piece of flowery ribbon and gems in the corners to finish it. Pity it's not a Xmas card!! I have so many yet to do!
