Some cards I made tonight

After the kids go to bed, that's when I get to craft. Just finished making some cards, my niece Andrea has just passed her driving test so needed to make her something to congratulate her.

I am still working on wedding invitations for my portfolio. The first one was created using a plain cream card and I used my Fiskars deckled edge scissors, cut and "pulled" a piece of purple mulberry paper and put 2 butterfly embellishments onto it. Coloured in a silver peel off using my whispers permanent pens.

The second card didn't picture to well, but I stamped gold roses onto the ribbon, stamped a wedding cake image by papercraft4u onto white card and embossed using enchanted gold powder by Heat It Up!, layered it onto gold glitter card and glued 4 mother of pearl flower heads onto bottom left hand corner. Used my Sakura red stardust pen and coloured in the heart as I thought it needed something to lift the image a bit.
They both look clean, smart and I hope a wee bit different than the norm.

Anyway thank you to everyone who posted comments, emailed me and sent internet hugs for my birthday. I had a lovely day, worked in the garden planting my bulbs, cutting the grass and and put my new watchman into my oil tank.

Speak to you all soon

Hi Karen, I found you through the Heidi Grace blog (I totally couldn't find her show anywhere and went to check for any updates). Anyway, weird roundabout way to get here but just to let you know I get all my Heidi Grace stash from I have a couple of things on my blog recently made with her goodies. No connection with the shop, just a fan of Heidi Grace stuff! :)


Check out my slide show!!!
