Regrets? Nah....

Morning.

Well, there is one regret. This card. My friends mum asked me to make a wedding regret card last year so I went for cream and a simple card using some embossing and die cutting and that's about it!  I just used the Scor-pal to get an embossed border round the card. I like this technique and may use it again soon now that I've been reminded of it!!

Birthday Balloons

Morning.

Thursday - one step nearer Crafty Weekend! 

Today's card is one I made for a friend at work and I went for the fabulous Faery Ink Birthday Girl image as Collette is pregnant just now and I didn't want to use an image of a girl quaffing champagne on her card! This is the first time I've used a Faery Ink image but it won't be the last.

Christmas at Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all.

It's time for a new challenge at Christmas At Sweet Stampin'

Our theme this month is 

Snowflakes

Our lovely Cass-ette Gail is offering a prize this month.

I think a few weeks ago I said I'd use Valerie from the Mo Manning set for another card - this is the only one I hadn't used and I wanted to try and get her on a card as soon as I could! I absolutely love this one and I'm thinking of putting her in a frame as I'm reluctant to part with her.

Er.... Last Year?!

No, it would appear not.... oops!

It would seem that this wee dude has been waiting for a chance to be seen since 2014 (albeit December 2014). Love this little image and with this card I've paper pieced the star rather than the babygro. There's something so lovely about a wee baby in a white babygro!

It's A Sign

Morning! 

The start of another week - and a short week for me this week as I'm off for a girly crafty weekend on Friday and the boys stop for half term on Friday too so it's quite a nice week really.

Anyway, this card is a sign that my unshared cards are coming to an end! Woohoo. I can't believe how many there were.  Still a few more of last year's to go but not that many.

This is an anniversary card that I did for one of the girls at work to send to her husband. Just a simple card using Stamping Bella's Serena and Her Sign.

Just Resting My Eyes

Morning.

That's something my Mum and Dad used to say all the time when they were snoozing in the armchair! I shared this card today as I thought he might have been watching the TV from yesterday and it's sent him to sleep.

This, as you can see, is another Father's Day card. And another of the ones I made for a friend.
