Hi Everyone !!!!  Happy Halloween.

Just back from 2 fabulous weeks in sunny Florida, the highlight of the holiday was swimming with dolphins, a magical experience!!!!! 😀 LUCKY ME!!!!!!

Over at PFP this week the challenge is ” for a child “. I made this card for a friend sometime ago, as you can tell by the date, but have never posted it as yet, so this is the perfect time to do so.

It’s a side step card….simple to make and very effective.

The stamped image is by Lili of the Valley,soooooo cute, coloured with promarkers and matt and layered using spellbinders nesties. The border at the bottom was punched using a Martha Stewart punch , with a few gems added for decoration. The sentiment is computer generated, I love making personalised cards.

Here’s a side view, you can see the step better in this piccie.

Have a great day whatever you might be doing 😀

I’m getting ready for the Trick or Treaters !!!

Good Morning 😀

This card is for the Naming day of Oliver Robert. The image has been stamped, coloured with copics and decoupaged.  The scalloped square was cut with a spellbinders nestie and the words were computer generated.(Sorry about the quality of the picture, it’s a bit fuzzy)

In the middle there’s a pop out cross section made with a WS Design template. The paper in the background was computer generated and the side strips were punched with a Stampin Up Scalloped border punch.

Hi everyone!!!

Hope you’ve had a great weekend.

I’ve made this card for a friend whose friend has opened a florists in Bedworth. This is a replication of the shop front, only there’s no canopy on the real shop front but I felt it need a little more decoration.

I cut a frame for the window and door and added some acetate to the back, to represent glass.The flowers and trees were cut from some decoupage sheets I’ve had for absolutely ages. The words were computer generated and then I added swirls with a white gel pen, really pleased with how this turned out.The canopy was made using the Stampin Up word window punch.
