At Last

Something to upload, sorry Folks just not been in the mood as have been a bit off colour. There is no stamping here either but this is Ethan's birthday card and as the boys get older I find it more difficult to make there cards, it was far easier when they were small and liked Winnie the Pooh
and am fed up of making football cards. Any how he loves Marmaduke so I thought I would go for that, just hope he likes it. I got the Happy Birthday from Sissex sale, it is brill isn't it and dirt cheep, in fact bought a few dies and was thrilled as saved a load of money. Worth having a look Folks

Deco's again

These as you can guess are for Nicki, was helping one of the girls out but when I looked at the theme which was letters of the alphabet I must admit I struggled. Anyhow came up with this, just hope she likes them. Coloured the backgrounds with distressed inks, then stamped a couple of background stamps all over.Then took all the letters of her name and put them on a block muddled up and stamped them all over. Made the flowers out of lace, well one has a flower on too as you can see and put a bit of lace along the bottom. They have not arrived yet but know she won't see them as she has gone away for a few days

Rubbish swap

I joined a swap on one of my groups and you had to make something with something you would normally throw in the bin, soooooooooo the little roses I made from a few tops off Activia pots as you can see below. Firstly I punched them out then coloured them with Alcohol inks then made them into roses. Just hope it survives it's journey as it is going to the USA, I have wrapped it in bubble wrap and wrote fragile on the envy. Oh well we will see if it gets there in one piece. Hope the lady likes it

Sorry the above photo is not very good but I did not realise till it was too late but it gives you the idea

Birthday cards

The one above is for Jamie, she is 14, think they get harder too make for as they get older. Well I chose to use sugar Nellie stamps, just hope she likes it.
The two below I made from images I already had done, I am getting a real liking for these easel cards. Love this little girl she is from paperbag studios, forgot to say I used the free flower stamp off Craft Stamper, stamped 2 and sort of intertwined them, I quite like the look of that better than a one flat flower. Must admit forgot where the teddy stamp is from. What's new. I am hopeless, anyhow hope you like my efforts
