Hubbys' Christmas Card

This was a very last minute card I made for my husband. I love the red, black and white together, the snowflake was donated by my daughter, was attached to a pair of fancy pyjamas which she received last Christmas as a gift, its felt. I added some silver stickles glue and a little merry christmas motif, along with a black gem. The writing is by my own fair hand, I don`t normally do this, I usually use the computer but I was in a hurry, added some more stickles for a Christmassy feel, but not too much as to make it too feminine. I like it and my husband was delighted with the finished article!

Girlie Bling!

This little card was made so quickly, but I think it`s very effective and typically girlie! Pain white card blank, overlaid with some pink paper from Laura Ashley. The little cocktail dress was from a kit very kindly given to me by my sister in law for Christmas, added a sticky ribbon also from Laura Ashley, some little flowers blinged up with some Stickles glue and a little "for you" greeting. This will be snapped up soon as my daughters are always looking for cards for thier school friends!

Happy Birthday

This card I really love. White card blank, overlaid with some black handmade paper. Stamped some flowers and a butterfly on to white card and layered this up on some red and black card. The red "ribbon" is some paper raffia that was left over from wrapping my presents, I mounted this on a strip of white card for stability. Added a "Happy Birthday" motif I found lying around, and a little paper flower with a black gem. I think the colour combo is very striking and could pass for a young recepient as well as a more mature one!

Penny Black Hedgehog thank you

The stamp is from the cute hedgehogs collection from Penny Black, stamped on plain white card and coloured using watercolour pencils. I mounted some blue spotty paper onto my card blank, and came across some grey card in my stash, I ran this through the cuttlebug using the swiss dots embossing folder. Mounted all up together and added a little flower embellishment which I recycled from another thankyou card I received. Love the blue, grey and orange together.

A few ATCs

Having a bit of a problem getting the creative juices flowing again after Christmas, so I though a few ATCs, quick to finish would get me started again. Just used up a few Xmas scraps, though I think the Friendship card is my favourite. I like the distressed look, though I'm afraid I have'nt really mastered it yet.

Few more pics!

My daughters!

Hi, Have'nt used this blog in so long now so I think it's time to get active again. Just going to pop some pics of my beautiful daughters taken over Christmas and I intend to scrap these sometime soon. Have really neglected to scrap lately opting for cards instead. They are beautiful girls so this has ignited my interest in scrapping again!

regards anne :)

My Favourite Page

This page, I just adore. We had some family pictures taken back in March and this one is of my daughter Catherine and her Nanny. I took the colour inspiration from Catherine's dress using black for the blackground and just a torn stripe of patterned paper to make a banner across the middle. I mounted he picture on white card and added a few die cut flowers produced via my indespensible Cuttlebug using a Sizzix die. I stamped and heat embossed some flowers and using silver powder, I finished with a caption which really does reflect the bond that exists between Catherine and Nanny. I love it!
