Joanna Sheen Weekly Challenge - French Chic


I had my first go at a Challenge this week and decided to make a card for the Joanna Sheen Weekly Card Challenge which had the topic of French Chic. I used a pyromage CD with a picture of a little French girl on it and did some matting with a Cuttlebug swirl embossing folder, TRES CHIC dome stickers stuck on and some fibres.

Commissioned Card for an Aunt and Uncle on their 1st Wedding Anniversary



I was asked to make a card for a friend's aunt and uncle who will be celebrating their 1st wedding anniversary soon. As I'd made three other cards for this couple, two using Joanna Sheen's Fashion Boutique, I decided to use Joanna Sheen's Floral Fantasy CD for this card

Commissioned Card for a Niece



I was asked to make a card for a friend's niece for her birthday. The remit had to be pink, pink, pink!!! I used Michelle Marsden's Triple Treasures CD to make this card

Commission Card for a 1st Wedding Anniversary for a Special Wife



I was asked by a friend to make a special card for her brother to give to his wife for their 1st wedding anniversary. I used the Arty Farty Paige's template to make this card, along with the Glitter Girls Celebration Board but when sticking it all together it went slanted so I had to redo the back pages again so I wasn't best pleased. I had to use cats/kittens on the card as this was the topic I was asked for

Commissioned Card for a Mum for her daughter and son-in-law's 1 st wedding anniversary

I was asked to make a card for a lady's grand-daughter so I decided to make one similar to that I made for my niece using Crafter's Companions Girls' CD

Commission Card for 1st Wedding Anniversary



I was asked to make a commissioned card for a lady's brother and sister-in-law who will be celebrating their 1st wedding anniversary shortly. I used Joanna Sheen's Fashion Boutique to make this card and My Craft Studio to do the insert

Card for a neighbour

Joanna Sheen Card Swap


The topic for August was a card of your garden or your pets using Flowersoft. Well I haven't any pets (only the cuddly toy brigade) and we only have an elevated vegetable garden so I got my husband to take some photos of his vegetable patch and made an inverted pyromage picture of his bean plants with the leaves of the bean plants for a background to the card and a border of the courgette plants

Card for neice




I made a card today for a neice's birthday on Friday. Sadly I was so tired today that three cards went into the bin before this one emerged that I was happy with. I used the Crafter's Companion Girls CD for this card

Card for a 3rd Birthday





It is our neighbour's little boys birthday so I used my Crafter's Companions Boys CD and made this card "Under the Sea"

Commissioned Card - for Grandson's 16th Birthday



My Mum asked me if I could make a card for her grandson's 16th birthday. I'd planned this one from me and my husband but used this one for her. Yet again I used my new Card Toonz Professional Nuttyness CD by Andy Carolan - needless to say I think I like this CD!!!!!

Card for my dentist


I recently had to have various appointments at the dentist and made this special card for my dentist to say thank you. I used my new Card Toonz Professional Nuttyness CD by Andy Carolan

Get Well Card


A friend was taken poorly recently so I made this card for everyone at work to sign

Commissioned Card - for a Retirement



A colleague at work did private work for her ex NHS Consultant but as he was retiring from the private work as well a surprise party was being organised and she wanted an extra special card. I decided to buy a new CD - Card Toonz Professional Nuttyness by Andy Carolan as I knew it had a picture of a doctor on it. I told my friend it was a pity that a nurse couldn't be included but it turns out his wife is a nurse so I got to use the doctor and nurse image and then various other images as he loves gardening and also his beloved guitars. It took me some time to make up the verse but it brought a tear to my friend's eyes when she read it. The Consultant was "over the moon" with his card and it has taken pride of place on the mantelpiece for all visitors to see.

Thank You Card for My Two New Keel Dogs


A friend got me another of my beloved Keel dogs and this is a card I made to say thank you
