Great Day for Flying a Kite

Hi again,

I made this card with no-one in particular in mind but I just loved the image.  I debossed the glimmer card and managed to find a matching border.  Hope you like him.

I Can Jump So High I Can Fly!

Hello again,  I hope you're all having a great weekend. 

I have been making a selection of cards for a box to give to my future MIL.  She wants to sell them in her work.  I've discovered that it's really hard to make cards for people I don't know... but I wanted to enter this one into Marg's "Wings" challenge on MSE so I started with the image and went from there.  Hopefully it'll get easier :)

Variation on a Theme - Another Baby Box

Hello Again.

A good friend at work became a grandmother for the first time this week to a beautiful baby girl called Tilly.  I was going to make another pair of baby shoes (check them out here and here) but decided to go for something different this time, so I made a pram.  I spent my lunch-hour designing a template and printed it out on paper to see if it would work (just aswell cos I only made two wheels - thinking in 2D instead of 3D oops).  I think it turned out rather well - what do you think?

I spent the next night making a box.  I had to use the baby pram embossing folder that came with my cuttlebug on this cos it matched perfectly.

Here they both are together.

And all tied up with a pretty ribbon ready for delivery.

Hope you like them as much as the new granny did.

Thanks for stopping by.

What a fantastic present!

I've had to wait a few days before posting this card.  This is the first card that I have made using my lovely new Cuttlebug.  My future MIL Michelle bought it for me for my Easter - so much better than an Easter egg :)  So of course my first make should be a thankyou card for her.

Thanks again Michelle - you really shouldn't have but it is fantastic!! xx

Mojo - Lost and Found

Hi again.

I have been asked to make a 50th card for a woman at work and I've been struggling over it for a couple of nights.  She's going to Egypt for her birthday and at first I thought about making that a theme for the card - but what a disaster.  My mojo vanished completely.  I then decided to change everything.  I should point out she loves horses and neither acts nor looks her age so I didn't want to emphasize the whole 50 thing.  I finally found my mojo tonight and this is my card...

I would like to say thankyou to Carmin on MSE for the stamp, which I coloured with pencils.  For some reason in this picture the image looks shiny - I have no idea why. 

Thanks for stopping by.
