Bags of Fun

I made this card for my sister's birthday and was inspired when I saw the little dog embellishment in the craft shop I knew exactly what I was going to do with it!! (So to speak .....)
The card itself is made using a template and bazzil cardstock and a lovely oriental paper, though I don't know who it's by. I finished off with brads and created the stitching effect with my pokey tool and a fine tipped pen.
Right, that's enough updating for know, it's late and I need to check out the inside of my eyelids!! I will try and post some more in a day or to when I get back from a couple of days away. I didn't realise how many things I have made and not posted so, brace yourself!!!! :-)

New Babies!!

Well, this has really been a year for new babies! My daughter's best friend gave birth to a beautiful little girl first of all (I made her the baby shower card previously) and one of the lads at work and his wife had the early but safe arrival of their little boy. I loved the card with the Happy Hopper image so much, I couldn't resist making it again. I don't normally make the same card twice but made an exception for this one! The backing papers are by DCWV and I watercoloured the image and added glossy accents to his little bottle to finish off.
The other little girl card was made using Woodware clear stamps and I attached the dangly bear with a few jump rings.

A Challenge

Thought I had better catch up with my blogging and enter a few of the cards I have been making (honest) but not been posting (on my blog that is, not by Royal Mail ....)

This card was made as a challenge and was made using a stamp by Magenta. I stamped the image several times and mounted onto card to create a 3D image. The front of the card was black card with a grey core, embossed using the cuttlebug and I then added gems and a bit of glitter for added sparkle.

The photos really doesn't do it justice but I hope you like it :-)
