Something different

I haven't made a card like this before, but enjoyed making it sooo much! It is just one of the fab templates on the Paper Boutique cd rom vol 1 from Polkadoodles.
I made this card for my Son to give his Girlfriend for her 18th Birthday and although I don't normally get much reaction from my Son about my cards, he absolutely loved this and so did his Girlfriend!

I don't normally do a lot of cutting out n stuff, I'm normally a stamper with an iddy bit of paper piecing now and then, but really enjoyed putting this card together, although I did run out of Glamour dust and had to have sparkly icing on every other layer instead of every layer, but I think it looks Ok for my first one!

Thank you for looking

It's about time!

Hello! I hope you are having a lovely Easter and have munched through tons of chocolate - or is that just me : )

It doesn't look that great outside today, gone really dark and gloomy and the wind is picking up a bit now aswell, so it doesn't look like I'll be going anywhere real soon. And anyway, it's been sooo long since I blogged I thought I would use this time on my own to upload a few pics of some of the cards I have made recently - the ones I remembered to photograph anyway!

This first one is a card I made for my daughter to give a friend at work. I really love this image and haven't used it much since I bought it, but am really pleased with how it turned out.

IMAGE: 'Primp' by Penny Black, coloured with Promarkers.
PAPERS: Kay & Co
SENTIMENTS: Papermania
I love this image, it's so cute. This is a card for my cousin's daughter who will be 6 tomorrow.

IMAGE: DigiStamp Boutique 'Fifi with present' coloured with promarkers
PAPERS: from scraps

love the colours on this card, which was made for Kozmik, a friend on DC.
I noticed when I took the pic that I had gone over the line slightly with my colouring, so obviously wasn't wearing my glasses, but apart from that, I really like this one.

IMAGE: was sent to me and if anyone knows the name of it I would love to know as I love it, but can't remember who sent it to me.
PAPERS: Basic Grey Nook & Pantry

I have 5 cards to make before Friday, so am going to make a start on those today.
Thank you for looking.
