What can I make with this

Well you know these adverts for different company's you get through the door and as you pick them up you are cursing thinking more junk mail straight in the recycle. Well put this one on the table and thought, good template that. See below
Anyhow, I had a go, traced round the outline on card then cut it out. Then I went round the heart shapes with a embossing tool and cut them out and stuck them on the card and decorated it a bit. Not a fabulous card but was just a trial to see how it would look and you can see it below

It will work, just have to try something different next time, made this one for my Sue and she will like it but not really my taste

New die

This is the new car die from Tim Holtz when I saw it I just had to have it. You know what it is like girls. Well I am pleased I got it as I love it. The cog stamps are from Stamp Attack and the cog die is another of Tim's. I am trying to make flatter cards for the post as you all know postage is going up again. Before long we ain't gonna be able to send anything, it will be too expensive. Lets be honest we all love our Birthdays more when we get lots of cards. I must admit I look forward to mine more, (even though I am getting old) since I joined KC Yahoo group as it is great to get all those extra cards

Isn't he great, I love this stamp, well you know what I am like it is a Viva las Veges. coloured with pro markers. Love the saying too but cheated with the background as it was ready printed

Hubby's birthday

 Well it is Fred's birthday next week and here are the cards I have made for him. I can't decide whether to give him the Ostrich or the Meercats. They are off a Peerless designs CD, I just love them they are called cuddle up cards as they are designed to close so that they look as if they are together
 The one below, well it explains itself, from a My craft studio CD and they are called off the shelf cards. Fred used to play darts many moons ago and was a good player too
 This one below again speaks for itself and he does like his pint but only has one once a week now bless him. You will be asking why so many cards, well I always make one for our Daughter Kim and one for Simon but can't make my mind up which one I should give him LOL

This and that

My Grandson Tom came and asked me to make his Dad a card for his birthday and this is what I came up with, am pleased to say he liked it. Apart from the hat it is very much like them as they are always taking there dog to the Dene and the fields to have a good walk

 The above one is not stamped, the Tinkerbell is of a colouring page, had to do Tinkerbell as she is daft about her. The butterfly is a Woodwear punch, the crown is off a CD I have, the rose I made. Pleased to say she loved that, thought she would as I put loads of glitz on, you tell me one little girl that does not like glitz
The above card is a very delicate baby card, think I should of used a deeper blue to stamp the image but never mind it is better in real life and must admit this is my favourite baby stamp, have others but always go back to this one. It is made by Santa Rosa

Hearts of hearts

Found out my Daughter in law loves hearts after 17 years,,,,,,,,,, so this is what I made her for her birthday. The card above is not stamped but you see she loves angels and fairies and this picture has both, it is another one from Joanne Sheenes CD, it is a fab cd
The heart above I made from scratch, don't faint, had no pattern no pins, all hand stitched and even though I say it myself I was quite pleased how it turned out and it brought a tear to Tracy's eye as she loved it and that was all that mattered. That is all for now Folks

Next deco round

 Here are my first two pages for KC next deco round, these are for Janice, her theme is black pink and mauve. The above one I have used Paper Artsy stamps and the trees are Elusive images. I used Brilliance inbad for the background as it gives it a nice shimmer
Sorry this is a bit blurd, did the same background but used a lovely friendship verse for the main as here theme was also friendship, this is from Simply Stamps. The butterfly is the freebie off this months Craft stamper. I am pleased to say she likes them
