Where are the weeks going, I can't believe it's time for my weekly post again...

Today's card is for my hubby for our anniversary on Friday, 16 years.

You might recognise the image, it was one that went wrong on my first attempt at my brother's 60th

Thanks for visiting!

Hello everyone

I'm sharing the card I made for my brother's 60th.

One of the ladies at the craft group I attend showed us how to do the design and I couldn't wait to have another go when I got home and make it into a card for my brother, it's the same technique as the bird card a couple of posts ago.

The stamps used were free Sheena stamps from various mags, distress inks and dylusion gold paint through a stencil for the sun rays, Britannia dies for the numbers and SW  pierced tags( I think).

Thanks for visiting, it is much appreciated.

Inks and stamps

Hi All

 On today's card I've used my trustee distress ink some inkylicious stamps and for sun rays some dylusions gold paint through a sheena stencil, which I acquired because a friend had 2...big smiley face cos I'd wanted one for ages.

Sweet and simple!

As always thanks for your visit.

I've been playing with my brusho's again and this colour combo came from Floral Fantasies,    Brenda used lemon and lilac but I didn't have lilac so used a light sprinkle of violet, I think it should have been a bit heavier but I really like the colour combo. I added a ink embossed butterfly by Sheena Douglas coloured with the same brusho's and the wording stamp 
came from Bee Crafty.

I'll be giving it to my niece for her birthday, she is off to do her masters in a couple of weeks

As always thanks for popping by.

Birds and Blooms and a moan!

Hi All

Today's cards are using HFC stamps and dies from birds and blooms, one sheet of 12 x 12 paper, that I stamped with a stamp script, some word stamps and my trustee distress inks.  
The last two I used a spellbinder and tonic dies.

I really like HFC stamps and dies but I have one gripe with them and that is that the dies don't match the stamps and it really annoys me. There is a stamp in the stamp set that I don't have the die for and dies that I don't have the stamps for, what is that all about. 
It's really making me think hard before I purchase any more of them.

Sorry moan over here's my cards.

As always thanks for your visit.

Hi All

Just wanted to share a christening gift I've made, I'm not really sure about it, probably because it's outside my comfort zone. 
It's a shadow box with the child's initial and on the tag is the child's name and christening information 
I got the idea from the net, just hope they like it enough to put it on

Thanks for your visit.
