First Christmas card for the year

Yes I did start my Christmas Cards - this one was made in March...

Memory Box die, ef, ribbon from Craft Queen, green sentiments sticker...

Bit hard to remember the ingredients LOL... and I hope to be making a few more cards now I can publish again....

1 year old birthday

Was asked to create a colourful card for a 1 year old... well I didnt want to go the "baby" card route so this is what I came up with...

An unusual name [by our standards maybe] but they loved the card...

I used a Stampin Up dots ef and coloured them with Twinkling H20's die cut letters and circles...

A little stencil fun...

My sister Cathy [Cathyscardspot] went to a local photographic and craft shop and did a stencil class with the following card as a result...

It was quite an enjoyable class - only 8 of us and we learnt a bit.... we did make some other stuff to create a card but we didnt get it finished... it is sitting around on my desk somewhere LOL...

If you want to see some amazing greeting cards - head on over to my sisters blog on the above link... she is so creative and an inspiration - and the butterfly queen in my eyes...

A couple of Stampin Up creations

Made at a card party with girlfriends - these two creations were the designs of Helen Dennien - our Stampin Up rep....


I loved making these - and I always change something so they are not exactly like everyone elses...

Just love the colours on the bottom card ...

She's Back...


I just don't believe it... a friend who creates websites had a look at blogger and publishing pics etc - and guess what - it wouldnt work because I was on internet explorer and not chrome... DOH!!!

So even though I haven't been very creative of late - I can now publish the cards I have made so far for the year.....



This was made for a friend - there were 10 made in total - his friends helped him manage getting around with a broken ankle...

Really basic and simple - Thank You die cut and stickers with a bit of black card on a white background... he loved them....

Thankyou

I have been trying to publish a few cards over the last week - but for some reason Blogger wont let my pics upload - so unfortunately it just isn't happening.


If anyone has any advice for me would be appreciated - otherwise I wont be able to do anything.


Cheers

Another year flies by....

Its my 51st birthday today [9th Jan] - its also 1 year since I started blogging...
A bit slow off the mark posting so far this year but it has been a whirlwind start spending time with friends and helping family out with their business - I will get back into it I'm sure...

For now here is the very first card for 2014...

Was asked for a birthday card for a "gay" guy turning 31.... LOL - I dont see what difference being "gay" makes however I do know that a sense of humour helps most of my friends get through the day... I used swiss dots ef, Art Stamps and brilliance back ink embossed with Hologram ep, coloured with Kaisercraft Kaiserfusion pens...

I am linking up to Pixie's Snippets Playground Week 106 - where its fun to meet up with crafty friends...

Thanks for stopping by... Mxx
