Kazans Challenge

I probably have missed the deadline on this challenge, but it was inspired by a funeral I had just attended when my Auntie passed away last week. So I had to submit it anyway.

The stamp says "A memory is a photo taken by the heart" & that is so true now that my Aunt has passed away, I have lots of memories in my heart of her!!

Baby Cards

I made these the other night as I realised my baby stash was quite low...

I used white CS, blue & pink paper mats, made scallop edgeing & a scallop edged mat for the little hands stamp. I placed spotty ribbon on the scallop edgeing & placed a rhinestone in each scallop. I highlighted the hands & dots with watercoloured pencils & a blending pen, finished it off with a flower & a rhinestone in the centre & a bit of ribbon the edge of the scallop mat.



Thank You

This is a card that was made for a very special thank you, I won't name names yet until the person receives it!!

This is what the card looks liked closed, then the bottom panel open & the two panels open:


It's a tri-fold card with different sized panels, I used white CS to make the card, brown PP with blue & white dots & blue PP, white satin ribbon with white fabric flowers attached with blue brads & in the centre, I used a clear plastic word plate that has Thank you printed on it & I cut to size a thin piece of the dotted PP to slide in between.

Card Organiser

I found this box on Dannies site & I loved it straight away, so I had to make it..... having said that I will be making many more so I can keep all my cards in individual boxes... for birthdays... get well... anniversary etc..

I used blue CS, white background CS & glitter stack PP, I punched out a scallop circle & cut out a white circle with George cricut cartridge & stuck on a word cicle

This is the front of the box

a 3D view

with the lid open, I used velcro dots to secure the flap when it is closed

And a side view

Thanks for stopping by & having a look

A few different cards

These are invitations for my Sisters friend who wanted some Wedding invites, so I made these up for to have a look at

A pocket invite with an insert

The insert

This my card for our Aussie Card Swap for April, the theme was either Thinking of you or Get Well

This my card for our Aussie Card Swap for May, the theme was Male Birthday

And this is just one I had a play with coz the stamp was sooo cute, the mouse is standing on his tippy toes with his arms stretched high & it reminded me of when as kids or even our kids, we would do this & say I Love You this much.... so thats the inspiration for this card

Thanks for stopping by & having a look

My niece is going away on a holiday for a few weeks so I made her this card as her fav colour is red & thought it would suit DeeDee's challenge too
