I finally managed to get some crafting done this week and I made 2 cards last night, the first one is a leaving Card for Jenny from CB HQ which I need to post off.. With the Second one I wanted to make it a little different so I used my gorgeous Laura Ashley papers with the Stamp I won in CB Crafty Giveaways I chose the Pink ink as I wanted it to give it some colour I will add a sentiment to it before I post it out to a special friend :)

Sequins' no glue challenge

Well this was a challenge and a half for me. make a card without using Glue or tape well what a challenge so here was my entry, the base card every element was sewn on. The zigzag paper was attached down the left side with zigzag stitch, then a tacking stitch across the top, the star paper was just attached at the bottom. bit I added some beads down the right side sewn on . I then used braids sewn in place at an angle to house the bookmark and stop it falling out, someone gave me this idea previously on another Card I made so I thought I would try it so I made a simple bookmark with 2 stamped images in Silver and Green and added a poinsettia to the top finished with a braid ribbon.

Birthday Cards

I made a few cards for July Birthdays they all seem to be floral themed :) but they where quick to make and they all turned out ok in the end.. Thanks the Tiggertastic for the image of the flower which I coloured in oranges this times to tie in the the papers and ribbon on the middle card, I think that image is so versatile it will fit with any colour scheme.. Sarah also sent me the large flower which is on the last card too thanks again hun.

Recent Makes
