I have designed my blog to display my card making, scrapbooking, mini albums and any and all paper crafting and STAMPING!! I want to discuss anything to do with all these things and play with my passion here!

Time to Post some cards!

Well time has come to post some of my work. I will include some cards.... many different stamp companies have been used. I like to make my own papers. I love the feeling of having something I made as my background!

This was a quick night before hubby went to work card......one of those "oh there is a retirement party for...." cards!! Oh how I love what comes out of those nights! I used my Unity KOM stamps for this one!

I LOVE Tim Holtz and this is use of his inks and his Butterfly wings Sizzix die cut

I like this card...made my own flowers and of course lots of bling and ribbon....love my bling!!

I love this card made with my ALL STAMPS....okay I'm lying.....I added a fishing pole from my Cricut cards cartridge! I used my Ippity fish and water grasses.  Mum loved her birthday card....she always gets the biggest fish (well bigger than what Dad catches!!!) and it's always a competition! 

I have a couple of Sympathy cards to share as well.....

I loved making this card.  I hate making sympathy cards but I always put a bit of myself into them given their content...very sad. I used Hero Arts stamps and Cornish heritage Farms for words on the cut out (spellbinder nestability label).

Another sympathy card.....However this has to be one of my most favorite cards I have ever made!  I found an idea in Paper Crafts ( I like to bounce from ideas I see in mags....) I used the words from a stamp used in the mag and then put it onto card stock and distress inked it up.  I stitched the edge of the card for the first time and have not done it since then. I need to get my sewing machine out for a regular use item!!!

Well these are a few of my cards and I will post more as I get them made.  I love my work....hope that you enjoy looking at it too and please I LOVE  comments!!!
