A few 'experimental ones' that came out pretty good, I like them anyway :)

Dancing couple card (below) was an outline sticker I stuck on card then coloured in with souffle pens and stardust Sakura pens. Framed, behind, with a glitter frame peel off onto vellum. Then all mounted on a white card and embellished.

Black and gold rose card (below) Gold outline sticker, coloured in with Sakura Stardust and Metallic pens, then adorned with a few simple accent peeloffs.

Silver and white rose card (below) Silver outline sticker, coloured in with Sakura souffle and stardust pens, then embellished around with borders and a few accents.

Jasikins card (Jasmine Becket-Griffiths 'Jasikins topper') Simple and pretty, I love Jasmine's work, have used her fairy's for doing personalised tags before and when I came across this I couldn't believe my luck!! One of my favourite fairies she's done. So, it doesn't need much to make it look good, just some simple embellishments, including some green square gems in the corners of the frames.

Forever Friends cards

After finding out it's a little girls 1st Birthday this coming Saturday, one of the mums down the school's little one, I thought I'd get hold of some Forever Friends stuff to adorn a card for her. So, I did her card first, then got carried away by the sheer cuteness of these little bears!! So I made a few, thankfully I still have plenty more to use too!!! YAY!!!

Hope you enjoy them.

More cards, finally can put these ones up!

As I mentioned before I've been trying to stick to JUST doing cards for family and friends birthdays/occasions, etc. SO, I now have the opportunity to add the next 'batch' to my blog. Hope you like them, I've been playing a fair bit with stuff and enjoyed it when I have the time to do a bit of card making :)

Cards, my first ones!

I have now been drawn to the world of card making!! My niece and mum both make cards and now I thought I'd try my hand at it too.
I didn't just decide to 'launch' myself into making ANY card, I decided to make a list of the cards I would normally send throughout the year and make the cards rather than buy them 'ready made'. I have to admit, I'm quite enjoying myself doing this and my 3 year old loves it when I get my stuff out, he gets given a bit of paper and some pencils while mum's 'creating'.
SO, here are the first one's I've made, if you have ideas to share etc I'd love to hear them.
