New Cards - 21/02/2009

Really pleased with how this card has turned out. I made it using Delish Designs papers, stamped the message and scroll using a blue/gold brocade embossing powder and lots of matting and layering. I have also used dark blue organza ribbon and jewelled brads. Not sure if it is clear from this picture - the criss-crossed piece of card is actually a bookmark that I have tucked into a little pocket on the back of the front flap.
The card below is made using the fab Wassail papers from Basic Grey. These are essentially Christmas papers but I think they look great for any occasion. You can't see it very well but the centre image is a pyramid stacked floral design that I have embossed using UTEE. Added some organza and satin ribbons to finish.
Thisnew baby card is actually a triple fold card using a kit I bought from QVC last year and some other bits and pieces from my craft stash.

I made this baby card into a shaker using sequins and tiny beads.
This is the inside of the baby card. The tags can be removed to write messages on.

The Reluctant Blogger

Welcome, to you who has probably stumbled onto here by mistake and was really looking to be somewhere else!
I am told that I should be doing this 'blogging' thing but really having trouble getting started. My one follower is fed up of seeing an empty page! I will try Val, honest.
Today is Valentines Day and I spent the morning making a card for my long suffering hubby. I have uploaded it here as the first project of the year! I had to tidy my craft room to make space to make the card and when O/H came home he said he thought I was going to tidy my craft room up!! - What do they know? The floor space was clear for goodness sake!
Well, that's enough for now. Hopefully I will get better at this and have a page that looks as fab as all the others on here.
Love to all
