Easter card number 2

Second easter card, no real good light today so sorry for the quality of the photo.

Green Bazzil card with punched corners, punched orange strip with yellow ribbon decoration. Flower is a Flora Doodle and 2 of my own design flowers on top using Pink Petticoat papers. Secured with a brad and spacer. Chick image is from Pink Petticoat and sentiment was printed on to acitate and 'rubbed on'.
Had a yellow feather so attached that with a flower gem to finish.

First Easter Card

First easter Card I have aver made to be perfectly honest. Not something that we as a family have ever done. Thought I would have a change this year and as I was on a roll with my card making it was a good excuse.

Papers are from Papermania Temptations pack. Card is bazill, all elemants except for the right hand corner flourish which is a cuttlebug die, were cut on my Cougar. Flower from stash and the spacer is an idea I got from Bev, thank you for all your inspiration Bev.

Son's Birthday Card

My Son is Football mad, specificaly Liverpool so thought this would be appropriate for him. He will be 31 but what the heck, he is still a boy to me, ha ha!!
Backing papers are from Scrapbookingmad and the footballer is George from Charmed Cards & Crafts.
I coloured George withjh watercolour pencils and cut him out then mounted onto more backing paper. Stars and trophy are cut from my Black Cat Cougar and embellished with star gems and ribbons on the trophy.
I do hope he likes it!!

Another retirement card

Had another retirement card order for my Sister to give a work mate. Unfortunately her uniform colour was dark blue yet again so couldn't get my mind around any other colour way than the first one I did. I just hope this is different enough for her.

Backing paper is from Artylicious Fantasy Floral, character from Dottie at Work download. Flowers are Flora Doodles and the top right brad I pressed into a Versamark pad then into Midnight/Emerald Obsidian ( by Stampman) embossing powder and then heated with heat gun. I was quite happy with the effect I got, so means I can use up loads of brads I got from QVC ages ago. The scalloped band was cut on my Black Cat Cougar machine as was the scalloped mat behind Dottie. Dottie was coloured in using my water colour pencils. A few peel offs and gems, completed the card.

Another 'PINK' card

This card was made using another one of the files available on my website. This is a letter J in a lattice shape with a lilac backer. I then mounted this onto a pink mat and edged with fine silver peel offs. The daisies are also from my website and cut in a few different shades of pink and lilac, stacked and applied to card with either a brad or a jewel. A few more jewels finished off the card. This was sent to a forum friend for her birthday, she has received it now so I can show it on my blog.
Busy designing new files for my website but should hopefully have maybe a couple more to show either today or tomorrow.
Thank you for looking in on my blog, I do appreciate it.

Mother's Day card

Finally got round to making a card today. Thought I had better get a Mother's Day Card made in readiness. I used a cutting file that I designed myself, cut in 2 different shades of pink and layered up to get the spiro effect. I then made a flower from my own daisies file and attached with a plain silver brad. All cutting was done on my Black Cat Cougar. Decorated with peel offs.

The files I designed will be on my website shortly.

Sorry for my absence

So sorry I haven't been posting for a while. I have been busy with 'life' as we say! Also been getting a website up and running with files for various cutting machines i.e. KNK, CraftRobo and Black Cat.
Not too much on there yet as I have only had it going for a week or so. Please feel free to have a look if you have the time. Will be back to posting when I have managed to get some cards etc done. I have a few to do in the next week or so and will post as soon as.
Thank you all for your continued support.

Cheers Sue xx
