My lovely nephew will be 1 in Feb so got cracking with his card today while i was in the mood

Another schoolfriends birthday

Its a really damp and dreary day in Derby so good excuse to stay indoors and craft.
Lucy has been invited to another party but a boy this time so time for a boys card. Much prefer doing cards for girls, but have lots of boys papers to use up and am trying to not buy anything at the moment. (Although I did find a lovely craft shop called Crafty Ways and left £30 lighter!!!)
wish i had added more colour to his shirt, got ideas for when i do this one again.#

My hubbys valentine

Life is pretty stressful at the minute so shut myself away today in my peaceful house and crafted.
The image is a digidownload coloured with promarkers and added on some stickles red glue and some glossy accents. Used my cuttlebug for the letters.

Engagement card

Also did this one for a friens who got engaged over Christmas, not to sure??

Congratulations, you're pregnant

Hi, had great fun making cards this weekend. Got 2 friends who are pregnant, so downloaded this digi image from Pink Petticoat to use and matched it up with pink and blues. Had some free papers to use from a magazine which i think really worked. What do you think?
Back to work tomorrow but hubby on nights so when i am off Tuesday i have to be quiet, so no housework for me- : )

Happy New Year

I've got a blog-exciting!! Not really sure what i'm doing but am sure will get the hang of it

I love cardmaking, but like most people struggle to find the time to do it as much as i would like.

Had my first go at making a stepper card today, my first card in 2011.Bit fiddly but think i did OK.
Made it for a colleague at work, hope they like it!
Will post some more over the next few days.
