2 more hugs.

Two more of my Hugs cards today. Have hopefully made time now to do some Birthday cards that are needed next month. I think on the last count I had 8 to do so better get my skates on I think.

Materials are as last post.

Will try and get some more done to post on my blog but the birthday cards will have to wait until they have been received or they will be seen, lol.

Elegant Fans

Ok, cheated a little, yet again, lol.

Did make a start on this yesterday evening, but the making up of the card was done this morning so I am counting it as todays card.
I have so many cds and hardly ever use them so I thought I would rectify that and make this card.

Papers and images are from Elegant Fans by Joanna Sheen.
Card is Stardream card in lilac and gold.
Fans are decoupaged and a little bit of cosmic shimmer pink glitter glue added to the flowers. Finished with a ribbon, flower, charm and peel off sentiment from my stash.

Golden Girl

Set myself a challenge yesterday, lol. Decided I would try my very best to make at least one card a day. This is the one I made yesterday then.

Paper is Papermania Simply Elegant
Image is a Daisy May download and coloured with H2Os.
Sentiment is computer generated.
All other embellishments from my stash.

Still have to finish the inside yet, lol so i suppose I have cheated on my challenge a little, oooppps.

60th Birthday Card

This was an order from my Mum, last minute as usual. Rings me at 6.30pm and needs the card delivering to her next afternoon, lol.
Anyway, used one of my designs for my Cougar cutter that I already had so that cut the time down a bit. The topper was glittered as was the 60. Flowers and peel offs were from my stash.
Mum was pleased with it so that was all that mattered.

Another 2 cards for twins.

This is just one of the two cards I made for their Dad to give the twins.

All papers and image are Pink Petticoat. Pink and Blue flowers cut on my Cougar and others from stash. gems, brads and peel offs from stash.

Bad light when I took the picture so it looks a little washed out I am afraid.

Father's Day combo.

Made this card and hanging treat box after seeing Bev's wonderful creation on her blog here.
Papers are from Funky Hands, image is a stamp I have had for a long time, sorry I don't know anything else about it. Image coloured with watercolour pencils. Flowers from prima and large roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. Sentiments were written using my Black Cat Cougar and also cut out with it. Card stock is stardream card and the panel on the card was run through one of my cuttlebug folders to give some texture.
All scalloped circles etc were cut on my Cougar.

Thank you Bev for yet more inspiration.

Image coloured with Whisper markers, papers by papermania Simply Elegant, flowers by Prima via my friend Debbie. Brad holding sentiment also via Debbie. Other brads, ribbon etc from my stash. Glad you liked the card debbie.

Creativity is back .....................

It has been far too long since I last posted on my blog, I hope everyone hasn't forgotten me, lol.
Had a week on the wonderful Isle of Mull, one of the best weeks yet.
Came back to lots of problems so had no motivation to do anything at all.

THINK the website is up and running again, which was an ongoing problem since before my holiday, my poor son has been working very hard with the hosts to hopefully sort it all out and had redesigned it for me too, so a big thank you to him.

Have acquired a noisy neighbour which has resulted in sleepless nights and slight panic attacks during the day so have not done anything at all in the craft department, I am sorry.

Will hopefully have a catch up with all the blogs that I love to visit and a big apology for not looking and commenting on them for so long.

Anyway, made 2 cards over the last couple of days, one of which I will post later when my friend has received it.
This one was a 'have to make' as said friend brought me some wonderful flowers etc from her holiday in America and they certainly inspired my mojo to get working again. Thank you again Debbie.

Papers are from an old set of pastel papers by Papermania, I think.
Image is Lily picking flowers stamp from the Rachelle Anne Miller collection.
Flowers are Prima and large rose paper flowers.
Charm, chain, peel off butterfly etc are all from my stash.
