Had a fab day out yesterday with my friend Louise for a Leisure Spa Day. It was really lovely; swimming, sauna, jacuzzi full body massage. And included an excellent lunch.

anyway it was my hubby's birthday on sunday and this is the card i made him. Hate making men's cards as i never know what to do with them!

another one similar to the las one but this time for my friends daughter. wasn't sure if it was too grown up but she really liked it (she's seven)

Made this card for my friends birthday and am really pleased with how it's turned out.

Papers are "hint of pink" from dovecraft (i think!), flowers from poppicraft, brad charms from dovecraft. the sentiment is a stamp i've had for ages but only just got round to using. she really liked the card and thought i'd not made it (not sure if that's a compliment or not!! lol)

Christening Card

We went to a christening yesterday and here's the card i made. It's fairly plain but i quite like it.
we were invited as obviously they're friends of ours but also because I was the mum's midwife when she was pregnant. We really enjoyed the day, although drunk a bit too much!! lol.

I did the sentiment on the computer and cut it out with my nesties. Lacy edge is done with my fiskars threading water punch. ribbon, flowers and gems ar from stash

I made this card for my lovely mother in law for mothers day. the image is an inkadinkado stamp. I got the idea for the row of flowers from a gorgeous blog the papers are K&Co, layered and matted. lace edge is from the gorgeous Martha Stewart doiley lace punch (think that's how you spell doiley!). swirls and corners from sizzlets cut out on my cuttlebug. flowers and ribbon from my ever growing stash. The sentiment is computer generated and is what is written on the bottom of the stamp, which is now covered with roses. Thank's for looking
