Happy Birthday Sam

It's been absolutely ages since my last blog post,and since it is my grandson's birthday today I thought I would get posting !
Here is the card I made for him,it is made both on my new silhouette cameo machine and my old Cricut machine .I am no longer such a fan of my Cricut ,I a prefer to make my own designs so the cameo is perfect .I am planning on getting back to making cards and other projects in the new year so if you want a card ,just give me plenty of notice

Just testing blogging from my iPad :)

This is a baby boy card mainly Cricut based. I love this teddy bear cut from the Christmas solutions cartridge and I opted for a non traditional colour scheme for this one to go with the vintage bear . Let's hope I have Sussed out how to post from this thing !

Hello again

It's been a very long time since my last post , but I have been really busy . I' m not complaining as it's a really nice feeling knowing that people love my cards and that they keep coming back for more . S nice things are going so well I have been very naughty and bought myself a lovely shiny IPad . If I get the hang of it I may even find time to post more regularly . Here is a cute card for a young lady who's favourite book is Roald Dahl's Matilda so I made this card in the style of the illustrator Quentin Blake

I entered this Valentine card into a  vintage card challenge over at craft creations ,As a previous winner there I had to enter into the winners category ,I was thrilled to see that I had won again !
Now I have £25 to spend in their store - I always use craft creations card stock as it is excellent quality and very reasonably priced-now if only I had waited another week before ordering nearly £40  worth of stuff  . . .

I made the easel card shape with SCAL on my cricut . the roses are a die The pearlescent paper was just perfect for making these they hold the shape so well , the key and locket were also dies and the words cut with SCAL too

I'm Back !

Hello , long time no see - I have been neglecting my blog and now I am back to it - I will try to keep  up to date with my cards .I try to take photos of all of my work but as they are usually for somebody who may see them on my facebook page or on here before they are meant to ,I try to hold back on posting them up .Then I forget about them !
Here is the card I made for my niece for her 21 st , her birthday was Thursday just gone so I'm ok to pop it on !
I used my beloved cricut machine for this one and Kate's ABC's cartridge .I cut two of the black out shapes and glued them together just at the top edge. decorated the front with the layers and voila ! a shaped card
