Another post today!!

Well I haven't posted anything for ages and I've got 2 on the same day. I've been trying to sort out some files on the computer so thought I would move some of my pictures to my blog :)

I bought these stamps from QVC and I love them. There were 5 foam stamps in the set and you will see these a lot over the next few weeks. They have totally encouraged me to become more of a stamper just because the images are so gorgeous. I wanted to keep this card as simple as possible because the image is so lovely.

I seem to be making a lot of baby cards recently and I love this image. These cards are simply a bit of matting and layering but I'm pleased with them :)

This Easter card I made for my Gran, the stickers are from Poundland (they are like shaker stickers) with Easter ribbon from my local craft shop and used glitter vellum from a do crafts goody bag.
I love this image, it is from a creative impressions Christmas theme plate. I embossed it with pearlised embossing powder. You cant tell from the image but I've inked the corners of the base card with a pink ink pad - I like using pink, lilac and blue for Christmas cards.

This is die cut decoupage from Kanban, I don't normally die cut decoupage because I like to it watching TV and cutting out the decoupage but I love the images on the sheet with this one. I just think that he is so cute!! I also think that it goes really well with the pearlised base card.

This is another card that I made with the Patchwork Pals kit from QVC. I loved this kit and I may buy it again because I used it loads. The base card is again card I got from Woolies before it closed.

This is the card that I made for my other half for valentines this year. I find it really difficult to make cards for him but I thought that this wasn't too girly!! The hearts and the love image are all papermania foam stamps and finished it off with gold heart peels offs.

This card I made for my other half's best friend who got engaged to his long term girlfriend just before Christmas. I used the same stamp as the valentines card above but I think that it looks totally different. I like the monochrome look but like to add a touch of colour like I have done here with the alphabets which were from a DCVW kit. The glitter paper was some wrapping paper that I had a left over from Christmas.

A quick last minute card for a last minute night out I was invited to. I can't remember where the topper came from but its a cute image.
