Baby Boy card

hello friends
hope you are all well. thanks for all the comments on my card yesterday - cheered me up no end!!

here is today's card - a commission card for a baby boy.

I have used some supersmooth card in white and using a font to match the background paper I printed the details of the parents, baby's name, date of birth, weight and time to make it personalised.  The font is called Bradley Hand and printed direct onto the card base.

 The image used is from Digistamp Boutique - a fabulous site with some amazing digi images. Here I have printed the image twice once on white card and then onto some softly shabby paper in blue.  I added tiny blue gems for sparkle.


This is the top section of the card with the parents names on

 This is the bottom section with the baby's details printed on.

This is the insert. Again with the wording matching the front - same colour and same font.

Thanks for dropping by again to say hello. If you do say hello and leave a comment whether good or bad - I love hearing from you and will return all comments with a visit to your blog too.

hugs to you all

Thank God I'm fabulous - happy birthday

hello everyone
wow - nearly another week has gone by. thanks for all your kind words of encouragement and positivity - I loved reading all your comments on my last card.

Here is today's card. This one is for a box I am making up for a local hairdressers who asked me to supply her with a box of cards. So am trying hard to cover every occasion I can think of.

This is a digi image from my stash - coloured with copics. 

The background paper is from my digi stash - printed onto wedding invite paper (lol) - I like to use this - seems to give the card a more expensive feel.

The Happy Birthday and the red lips were from one of Netty's freebie downloads. I simply printed them out after merging them together using Photoshop and added red cardstock and glossy accents to make the lips shiney!

I added some gems to her bracelets and one in the bow in her hair just for some sparkle.

I think this card is fun and hope you like it too!!

thanks for dropping by again today - means so much to me.
off now to visit everyone's blogs and leave comments.

hugs to you all until next time

1st Wedding Anniversary card

hello everyone
apologies for being missing in action again. have been rather low lately but am determined to battle through this.

Here is today's card. this was a requested card for a brother and sister in law.
I made the very popular landscape card.The theme of their wedding was black and silver.

I printed their names and the date requested was for their wedding date - not their anniversary date. Now to me this is wrong - I might be wrong myself - but to me if its an anniversary card - it should be the year of your anniversary not your wedding year. If that makes sense? What do you think? Anyway I was asked to change it as I put 2013 on for this year and was asked to change it to 2012.

So I punched the butterflies and leaves and butterfly out of black cardstock. I also cut a silver butterfly. 

These are the flowers and leaves. I added large diamates for the centres of the flowers for extra sparkle.

I would appreciate any comments or suggestions as always and your thoughts on the date I was asked to put on. Am I right or are they right? 

NOTE - having read some of the comments on here and on my Docrafts page - I guess there is no right and wrong way - customer is always right!

Am off now to catch up on all my fellow bloggers, friends and followers. 
hugs to you all

Wee Stamps - Because you're so special

hello everyone.
thanks for dropping by again today. much appreciate it.
today's card is a quickish card - made with one of the Wee Stamps available here.

I love this image - its so cute!! I have added a touch more colour to their cheeks and also added some glamour dust and glossy accents to their  antennae and the balls at the bottom of the branch.

Now - don't all laugh at once but this is my first go with the doileys!! ooh get me. mind you - it took me ages to get it to stick down without the glue going everywhere. I've probably done it wrong - no doubt you will have better ways and ideas of sticking them down!! This one was very kindly sent to me by my good craft buddy on Docrafts  - Teresa - known for her stunning cards and love of all things Tilda!! You can see some of her fab cards here on her blog. 

I simply matted the image onto some lilac cardstock to match in with the digi background paper. The flowers are cut from lilac paper and the leaves from my Martha Stewart leaf punch. I added large diamantes for sparkle.

The sentiment is from Netty's freebie sentiment images.  I printed it out direct from the PC onto the same lilac cardstock.

Here is a close up of the image 

Thanks for dropping by again today - always look forward to seeing who has visited me and my little blog.  Off now to visit my fellow crafters.
hope you all have a good weekend

hugs to you all until next time

butterfly kisses and birthday wishes

hello friends
crikey where have the weeks and months gone? Its August!! I just can't work out where the time has gone.

Anyway - today's card is a quick clean and simple card. I wanted to do a few cards for the card box on my desk and was asked for a quick butterfly one. I had this saying in my head a while back and can't remember if I read it or it was on someone else's card!

I used a font called Allura for the wording and added glamour dust -albeit not very neatly by the looks of the photos! Its a bit like those Monet paintings - looks fine at a distant but don't look at it close up!! LOL

Here is an awful close up of my awful glittering! don't laugh!! oh well go on then - I guess I am laughing too.

Here is another close up of the card.

I just thought a few clean and simple ones would bulk out my card box. Make it look like I am busy! LOL

hope you like this one albeit a bit simple.

hugs till next time
