I am really enjoying myself at the mo, i seem to have managed to find some "me time"  this past few days and enjoying every minute.
I went a bit mad and treated myself to a whole heap of cutting dies, and rather than putting them away for later and forgetting about them  i decided that i would try each one and see what the end product looked like.
needless to say once i got stuck in, i couldn't stop.....typical Crafter syndrome.
I thought i would go for Blue and Green, not my usual colour combination but once i started i thought it looked pretty good.
I didn't have a theme for this card either, i just started cutting out the dies and playing about with the lovely flowers, swirls and flourishes with a few Prima flowers mixed in for good measure.

 I left the Tag blank so i can add a sentiment later on

Most people use Doilies as a backing element behind the main image or just a little bit poking out of the side.
I decided that i would make a card using Doilies as the main card itself, and i must say i am quite pleased with the result.
I am sorry the photo's are not as bright as i would have liked, but the card is very pale with just hints of colour and the elements are cut from shimmering card (Always difficult to photograph)
I thought it looked very Shabby Chic.
I have included some photos of how it all began using the Doilies as the main card.
I hope you like what you see and i also hope it gives you some inspiration.

Here are the pics of the way it all began..

Chelsea Footie Card

Now you have heard me mention my very talented friend Kim and how good she is at making cards for the male population, well here is one that she made for a customer who is a Chelsea Fan.
it's an Easel card and so much work has gone into it.
Just look at those little footballs and footie boots, i happen to know that she stamps, colours, cuts and triple embosses them to make them look like epoxy.
I am also going to add a picture from her son Luke who made me this get well card.....Hmmm!  from the look on my face i think i was worse than i thought.
Love you Luke x

The big brown blob in the middle  according to the gospel of Luke, is in fact a Doggie doodo, which one of my 3 dogs produced.
when i find out which one did it, i shall have serious words...Thank you Luke for bringing this to my attention......we all need a little humor in our lives and this certainly made me smile.


Now here is something you don't see very often these days.
RSVP or Text or Telephone or Email or Facebook but not usually a card.
I was asked to make a special RSVP card for a neighbor, and as i have never made one before i though it would be a challenge, so here is my effort.
I am not entirely sure if i got it right, but i thought it looked quite good.
I have used a good selection of dies and used shimmer white and Cream card, with a hint of pink for the Butterflies and a very soft green for the foliage.
Comments are welcome as it will help for future requests for this kind of thing.

Just a little card i had time to make this week.
Oh! the joys of having a few hours to play...sadly this does not happen as often as i would like, but the few hours i get is pure crafting bliss...
Isn't she just adorable?? I just love the Whimsy stamps, they are so cute and just crying out to be coloured.
I hope you like it.

Are those corners just divine or what!!
