A Couple of Baby Boy Cards

My niece has just announced she is pregnant and although the baby isn't due until December, I felt inspired to make a couple of cards in advance!

She already has a 3 year old boy but feels it might be a girl this time, so I better make a pink one as well.

A Hat for the Wedding!

I just love wearing a hat at a wedding - the bigger the better and here is a photo to prove it from last summer.

As I haven't been invited to Kate & Williams wedding, I made this card instead using a vintage image downloaded from Digital Two for Tuesday site - they have some unusual old images on there and all for free!

Happy Easter Everyone!

After a few hectic days visiting friends, family and the Zoo, I'm looking forward to a quiet day at home today - who knows, if it is another scorcher, I might just have to come indoors and craft to get away from the heat!

I'm trying to make a few teal coloured cards for Scottishmisty over on DoCrafts to help raise funds for Overian Cancer so that is another good excuse to get the stash out, here is my first one.

Viva La Flora Photochips

I'm trying to avoid chocolate so I treated my self to these Darkroom Door Viva La Flora photochips instead.

They were a little pricy for some mono photos of flowers but they look very elegant layered onto black and gold. The gold cards I am going to keep as sympathy cards.

Just loving this Marianne Bird

This 'bird on a branch' has got to be one of my favourite dies. Its from Marianne Creatables and looks fabulous as a silhouette.

I know I have featured an ATC and a sympathy card made with it before on my blog but couldn't resist posting this latest birthday card for a male birdwatcher friend as well.

Easter Cards Galore!

The pack of free Docrafts Honey & Hugs papers that came with this months Papercraft Inspirations magazine seemed just right for Easter cards.

I know its a bit late, but I rattled off these 5 cute cards in just one evening. Each, very similar in layout and desigh but slightly different!

An inspirational Square Card

As usual I turned to the Inspirational Card Sketch challenge when I feel like doing something a bit different.

This time they had a square surrounded by 4 rectangles. As I had just treated myself to the Docrafts pampered pets paper pack, it seemed a great idea to dive in and use it!

A Bird in a Cage

I've teamed up a free image from Making cards mag with some fab silver and black swirly paper from Red Hot Bed to make this birthday card for a friend. The birdcage is matted onto black and silver to really make it stand out!
