Happy 90th Birthday

Blimey am I getting good or what!! LOL another card. flippin heck don't know what's got into me but lets hope  I can keep this up!
A requested card for a 90th birthday for a lady who loves cats and butterflies.

Image is a Lily of the Valley image called Thomas - Champagne. He was free with Papercraft Inspirations magazine along with a whole load of other stunning LOTV images. Thanks Papercraft Inspirations and LOTV for the fantastic freebies!!
Coloured with copics as always. Added glamour dust to the bubbles coming out of the glasses and used glossy accents to the drink in the glasses.
Matted onto pink card stock and punched some flowers out from the same cardstock. Backing paper is a Zoe Pearn freebie from ages ago. Leaves cut with a Martha Stewart leaf punch. Gems added for sparkle. 
Butterfly has a diamond shaped diamante gem for effect and diamante butterflies added too.
Wording done directly onto the backing paper using a font called Adore

Love and Friendship

Finally made a card and this time I remembered to take a photo of it. I blame old age myself. I am hopeless at remembering stuff at the moment. but seems I'm not the only one!! Loads of people are saying the exact same thing.....well I think they said it. Or maybe its me now imagining these conversations. Crikey now I am waffy!!
anyway back to the card.
this is the February Friendship card I made for Sue usually known on Docrafts as bearhouse.

this is a tilda image which was kindly sent to me by my beautiful friend Lisa at Wishcraft blog. she is fab. this was sent for my birthday.
as always coloured with copics and matted onto red cardstock. the papers were another fab freebie which came with a magazine. they are from My Mind's Eye if I remember rightly!!
wording was done on the PC using a font called doris day. flowers cut from the trust x-cut punch with red gems added for a bit of bling and red candi dots in the corner are from Craftwork Cards.
thanks for looking and I appreciate all your comments whether good or bad.

hugs always until next time

Lisa Wishcraft's Waste Not Wednesday

Crikey another week nearly gone by. Well hopeless me as usual made a card last week for Lisa's Waste Not Wednesday - only to discover there was a layout plan to follow. Doh! Silly me made up my own and so couldn't enter it for that week.
So - here (hopefully) is this weeks entry of mine. I hope there wasn't a layout to follow this week!! LOL, cos I couldn't find one.
anyway I waffle on as usual. For those of you who may or may not know the fabulous  Lisa at Wishcraft cards has a brilliant idea for using up all your images and paper instead of printing or stamping out more you have to use up what you already have.

So here is my creation!! 

Its a Valentines card with an image I found on the hard-drive of my PC. I have no idea where its from or who designed it.
so if anyone knows please let me know!! LOL
As always its coloured with copics. the paper is an old print out that I found from the Forever Friends Triple CD disc in the Love section. its simply matted onto red card stock and the wording was done on the PC.

I think its plain and simple - just like my brain is at the moment!! I cannot seem to focus on anything lately - I blame my age being 36!!  (LOL)

check out Lisa's fab blog here as she is giving away some fab candy 

to spend at the fabulous Lili of the Valley website. so check her blog and theirs out today!

Happy Birthday to me!!

Well I gave in and had my birthday after all!!
Mind you considering my birthday is normally a really rubbish day - today hasn't been as bad as normal.
Although Justin (my hubby's business partner) gave me one of my own birthday cards AGAIN, from the box on my desk, and he did fill it out in front of me which was a bit of a giveaway. Men eh!! LOL

Thanks to all of you who have left birthday wishes for me on DC and those who have sent cards too.
I spent the day making a card for someone else and then stupid me forgot to take a photo of it.
Could that be my age now? considering I am now a year older?
Although I do like my friend Laura's Nana's theory - you go back 7 years - which would now make me 36.
So yes Happy 36th Birthday to me. LOL

hugs to you all!
