Happy 12th Birthday

hello friends.
wow its Friday again - hope you all have a fab weekend planned. don't forget not only is it Mother's Day but also the clocks go forward.

Here is today's card. this is another requested card for a 12 year old girl. I was only told she liked purple, white and hated pink and fairies.

So I used this image from the Hobby House. Its from the Wee Stamps range called Hopeful.  Its a pre-coloured image and all I have done is changed the colour of her trousers. 

The card is an 8" square card. I printed the sentiment on the background paper and stuck this to the front of the card. I matted the image of the girl onto 2 different shades of lilac card. 

The background middle section of paper has been punched to make a decorative border. I used punches for the leaves and flowers, and butterfly. 

I added some glitter and diamantes to the flowers in her hair and on her side and some glossy accent on the lamp.

The sentiment date was made on the PC but stupid me took the pic before I realised the year section was WRONG. So luckily while going over the card I changed it but forgot to take a new pic. So I do know its wrong just incase you all think I've gone waffy!!

thanks for dropping by again.
hugs to you all.

Happy Birthday Grandma

hello friends
thanks for sticking with me - I appreciate your feedback so very much.
As promised here it today's card.
this time  I used a Hunkydory Card Kit that recently came free with a magazine.

I used the background paper with the kit - scanned it and printed directly onto the card base along with the sentiment - printed using a font called Passions conflict.

I used the topper and matted one onto some holographic mirri card for extra sparkle and to lift it so it didn't look as flat.
I added some organza ribbon from my stash and mounted all of it onto another of the card toppers.

I added some glitter and some small diamantes for sparkle.

thanks for dropping by again today to say  hello
I will visit everyone who visits me and leaves a comment.

hugs to you all. have a fab Friday night.

Happy 6th Birthday

hello friends. once again its long time no see. I never realised before how much I needed and used my PC for my cards. 
I have been without a PC for about 2 weeks or so now and its been killing me!!
so apologies to all of you if you have once again wondered where I have gone.
I have been de-fragged, de-antivirused, de-scanned and basically had to have a whole new PC - so its onwards and upwards and hopefully lots of cards to do really quick as I have loads of orders to do to hopefully keep you all interested.

So here is a card I managed to make before my PC went the journey to the big PC graveyard somewhere in cyber space. LOL - 

This is a card for a 6 year old. I wasn't told what she liked at all so I used a Clip Art Fairy digi image as I thought she might like the image. Its called Gift of a Flower as is available as a download here.
I like these images - not only are they fab images, but also brilliant for quick cards.

I added some glamour dust and some glossy accents to the flowers and hearts.

I then matted it onto some orange cardstock to keep the colour theme going.
The word was done direct onto the card base direct from the PC.

thanks for bearing with me yet again and now I'm back with the PC I will have another card for your tomorrow.

hugs to you all

Because you're so special.

Hello friends and followers 
Hope you are all well and enjoying hopefully the start of Spring.
today's card I hope you will like - Its a pre-coloured image from the Wee Stamps range - I matted her onto lilac card stock.
The background paper is a digital download and I used some more lilac card to make a small border with a pattern cut using a border punch. I added some organza ribbon too.
The sentiment is a freebie from the fabulous Annette - she has a wide range of freebie sentiments. Not to mention her stunning cards too. 
I added some glamour dust to the edge of the sentiment.

The flowers are from an xcut punch and the leaves I found amongst my stash which is pretty good considering I don't know where they came from! Craft fairies perhaps? LOL

 I also added some glamour dust to the edges of her wings and a pearl to the flowers in her hair.

 Here is a close up of the ribbon and the border section.  In the corner I stuck diamantes for extra sparkle.

thanks again for dropping by today. I hope to have another card to share with you very soon.
hugs to you all until next time
