Long blog!!

A great big HELLO!!!
I can't believe i haven't Blogged since April.
Where has the time (and months) gone.
I've been busy working, decorating and a little crafting.
Here are some of my latest creations........ :o)
This card was made for my Brother-in-law's birthday.
I used a Wellington image and backing papers.
I am loving the Wellington range at the moment as
they have lovely images for men's cards.

For my garden loving Father-in-law.
I have used a Flippin' men image and background.
I decoupaged the gardener onto acetate then
stuck the acetate to the card.
(This is my first use of acetate and I'm
really pleased with the outcome)

Happy 9th birthday to my niece Emily.
I made this card as my niece is a HUGE
dance fan and loves Strictly etc.
I used the Kanban 'Disco diva' card kit and
my niece LOVED it.

This card was for my hubby's birthday.
He is a crazy Mountain Biker and goes out every weekend.
The image i used for this card is from KennyK.
The image is called 'Bike Boy' and i
have coloured it with pro-markers.
Well i hope you like my new creations. I love making cards and I'm starting to try new ideas.
I am also very excited (and nervous) as I've had a few commission's for cards.
I will add these soon and i promise to blog
more regularly lol.

Did the Easter Bunny visit?

This year i helped the 'Easter Bunny' to create
3 Easter egg cards for my niece and 2 nephews.

To make these 3 cards i used Kanban Easter toppers
and core'dinations 12x12" white linen card.
I then added matching eggs, ribbon and names etc.

I also made a Tealight Easter Card.

This card was made with the same products
but i used tealights instead of chocolate eggs.

I hope you had a visit from the Easter Bunny :oD
