Sympathy Card

Hi everyone
Unfortunately it's a fact of life that sympathy cards are always in great demand.  When I saw this quote on the internet I thought it was so apt and beautiful that I had to make a card using it.  I hope you like the card and are also touched by the sentiment.

Woodware JGS325 Love Tulips

Hi Everyone!
Can't resist Craft Fairs and this stamp is my latest purchase, along with a few other items of course!!  The lovely lady from Wear Crafts, who was demonstrating this particular image, provided the inspiration though I must say it was time consuming so I will do something easier next time I use the stamp.  I also bought the Mix'd Media inx by Donna Salazah to try and loved the effects you can create with these.

I stamped the image twice (once on watercolour card) and then used the Mix'd Media Inx to colour the image.  I cut around it (the really fiddly bit!!) and then used foam pads to mount it over the plain stamped image.  As it was fairly elaborate I kept the sentiment simple and added three gems to lift it a little.  I hope you like the end result.

A couple of cards commissioned by my daughter

  My daughter will be a bridesmaid for the first time this weekend and asked me for a special wedding card for her best friend.  She also wanted a birthday card for another friend so I hope these two cards will fit the bill.

Donemark Craft Club Challenge - Wk 13 Christmas Wreaths

This week my friend Karen cut out seemingly hundreds of snowflakes on her new toy, the Brother Scan-n-Cut.  We then had to make a Christmas Wreath card and this was mine!  Hope you like it.

Donemark Craft Club Challenge - Wk 12 lace and pearls baby card

Well I've just spent a few exhausting days in London with my very good French friend Monique so now I've got some more catching up to do.  This week's challenge gave me an irresistable opportunity to use the Tattered Lace pram die.  I chose to set it within my favorite Marianne Creatables set LR0242 and was quite happy with the end result.   Not so happy with my positioning of the sentiment but hey ho it's done now!  A few pearls added the finishing touch.
