Catch up

Thought it was time to catch up with the cards I have been making over the past couple of weeks.

This one is a card I made for my nieces to give to one of their friends Ruby, who will be 5 tomorrow. The gorgeous little girls was a freebie image from Anne Bodill, here, check out Anne's blog she has some lovely images.

I have entered this card into the DU2DS challenge 44 this week which is blooms and charms, the background paper is covered in blooms and the little butterlfy charm enables this one to qualify for this challenge.
Papers were free with a magazine, image coloured with pro markers. Ribbon, charm and pearls from stash. Not overly happy with the colour of the picture the light has been rubbish here today and this was the best one I could get of her this morning before I had to deliver the card.

The next one was the one I made for my Gorgeous youngest Niece Matilda who was 2 on Saturday, she loves being in a swing and will happily let my dad push her for as long as he will. When I saw this image by CC designs I immediately thought of Tilds.

I have entered this one into the anyone for anya challenge for this week, it is the 1st year anniversary of the anyone for anya challenge blog and there is also a blog hop. I you are interested pop over here for details of the challenge and hop.

Papers are again free with a magazine, image coloured with pro markers, decoupaged branch, girls legs and the butterflies. Punched flowers from some of the other papers in the pack. Ribbon and pearls from stash. Image available from All that scraps if you are interested, take a look they have some lovely images, I bought another one when I got this one which I am looking forward to making something with over the next couple of days.

This one is for my excellent friend Chantelle, who's birthday is tomorrow. She now lives near Liverpool but is down on holiday at the moment so I gave her this one as I won't see her tomorrow on her birthday.

Again papers from a free pack with a magazine, simple matting and layering with co-ordinated colour card, pearls and ribbon in bright pink which pick out the pink in the paper pattern. Bird punched with stampin up two step bird punch. Yes I have also used a peel off sentiment, I am not as big a fan of these as I was when I started making cards (they were all I really knew in the beginning), but I do still think they have a place in my craft world when I need one.

I was really pleased with the card above and my Mum asked me to make a card this week for a friend of the family, not really knowing what she really likes I thought I would do similar.

Papers are free ones again from a magazine, punched bird and flowers, ribbon and pears from stash, and another peel off sentiment.

That's it for the moment, I am working on a couple more cards and have started to prep some bit for Christmas cards which I am hoping to get on with ASAP.

I am on holiday this week and as not gone away I thought I would fit in plenty of crafting time, so far I have not done a great deal as I have been out with my Sister and the girls for the past two days and am off out with them again tomorrow and with them and some friends on Thursday. Oh well time with family is precious and card making can be done later.

Thanks for looking I hope you are all enjoying the summer even if the weather is not at it's best!
