What a doll !

This card has been made a while and is now with it's rightful owner so I can share it with you my blog readers

It is an 8in x 8in card and was made that size because the lovely lady I made it for loves larger cards

I used a Julie Nutting doll stamp by Prima and made the colours all very soft and very pretty as I know Carole loves all things girlie

So glad you are my friend Carole, you are one of the kindest, most loyal, most hardworking and generous people I know - and you make me laugh !

She's a diamond

This card was made last week for my lovely friend Anita,  I created a large 6 inch square diamond fold card as the design 

If you don't have an 18inch length of card it is possible to make one of these by joining two pieces together and the join is invisible on the finished card

Whilst I was at it, I added a little embellishment to the brown paper bag I had brought home to put her gift in

We had a fabulous time helping Anita celebrate on tuesday, with gifts and cards and cream cakes and all the usual fun, teasing and easy laughter that only comes with truly special friends.

Hope your day was as special as we intended it to be  - my lovely friend

Feeling Blue

Sympathy cards are always my least favourite cards to make, obviously because of the subject matter, but I really wanted to make this one for my mum to give to one of her lovely friends who recently lost her hubby

The card is on an 8in x 8in scalloped base and the whole thing is made with just cardstock, no patterned papers, I used die cuts and inks and kept the design fairly simple

Red roses

Another recent commission

This one was created for a gentleman customer who wanted something romantic with roses for his wife's birthday

This is an A5 card and I did create a matching box too (just forgot to photograph the box before I gave it away - oops !)

My gent was delighted with the card and box, hope his wife was too.

Sorry blogging has been erratic once again, Amy is due to go to uni next week and we have been busy sorting out all the financial, logistical and practical stuff that goes with that.

Don't mention the emotional stuff though, totally not ready for my baby girl to be leaving home ( I am completely in denial that I left home two years younger and went twice the distance ! - sorry mum xxx)
