Mum's birthday card

Hi Everyone

This is my last post before a holiday which will see me miss my mum's 85 birthday!  My poor hubby hasn't had much luck choosing holiday dates this year as we missed our daughter's birthday on an earlier trip.  Still, I've finished a card for her which I think she will like and we'll celebrate on our return.  I used my favorite Marianne Creatable die set (LR0242) and some flowers from my box of odd bits and bobs!  Thanks for looking.

Penny Black "Uplifting Occasion" stamp

Hi Everyone

I really love this stamp and this is the second card I have made with it.  At the last Craft Fair I went to I watched some beautiful flowers being made and, although I have had little success in the past at making my own flowers, I decided to have another go and use them with this image.  I hope you like the finished card and thanks for looking.

A little experiment!!

Hi Everyone

I've had to make so many cards for family members and friends of late that I felt it was about time I played around with some new ideas.  The pinwheel technique came up when I was surfing the internet and so I have had a go.  I'm quite pleased with the effect.  If you want to take a look at it I have added the link .  Thanks for looking.
