my post for today is this card that l made for my grandson Oliver.....
with a little info from my daughter l found out that he is into a programme series called "Breaking Bad", never heard of it myself but this is the finished card.
This started with a 8 x 8 green scalloped card and after sourcing the images, using my Digi-designer, l made the background paper and then made the notice board effect with green card, then it was just a matter of placing the images around the main title topper.
Took this to him on the 14th as this was his birthday and he absolutely loved it, so job good job done by me thankfully.

Here's my post for this morning.....
This card was a commissioned order and l was asked to make a card for a 3 year old, who is really into Disney Princesses, and also was asked to include loads of pink glitter, so this is the finished card...
I started with an A5 landscape white base card, the main background was made from pink glitter card, l then sourced the chosen images and matted onto silver mirror card. The text was cut from my Tattered Lace alphabet, and the 3 and the crowns were cut using my Cricut machine.
My customer was over the moon with the finished product, and said that she would love it.

Good Morning.....here's my post for today....
As you probably already realised l made these two pop-up boxes to match up with my previous post and were made using images from the same C.D., but this time made into the boxes.
Sorry there's not a lot l can say about these as its really self explanatory.
Many Thanks for stopping by, please leave me your comments.

my post for today are two baby cards that l have recently made.
As you can see they are similar to each other, just different layout, colour and embellishments.
The images are from a C.D.
Both are made with 6 x 6 white cards, and l played around and cut the safety pin and place it to look as if it has been pinned to the card strip.
Not a lot more to say about them really, nice and simple cards.

My post for today is one that l was commissioned to make for a customer that regular orders from my, she loves the fact that she can write down what she would like and l design it to her needs.
This one was obviously for a friend of hers that a lollipop lady, and also goes to quizzes at her local.
Very self explanatory, l found the images, made background from one using my Digital Designer, and cut out letters for name and also numbers using my Cricut machine. Below is the inside, this she also wrote out for me what she required. I love making cards like this as it makes you use your imagination, sometimes rather testing tho....lol.

February is a very busy month for me, and this is my second card, this being for my great-grandson, Ethan who was two on the 2nd. As with all little ones, they love so many characters, and l chose to make this one, one of the Minions. I printed off a few copies so as to decoupage it to give some dimension, then placed it onto an A5 portrait card, added googly eyes too. His name and age was cut using my Cricut machine.....Apparently he loved it.

Hi there everyone....
My post for today is two pop-up boxes that l made for my grand-daughters birthdays, Abi is as most girls are into make-up, handbags and shoes so decided to made hers with that theme. I won't bore you with the instructions for making these as l think most of us have made them from time to time.
Below is the one l made for Rosie, she is into Manchester United football team so that was the theme for hers. You have probably guessed they are twins, and so lovely too.
Thank you for stopping by, look forward to reading your comments.

Here's my post for today.......
Having going through my many magazines l found this one and thought that the design of the card is quite a nice change, the stamps l used where also from the same magazine, and were coloured using my Spectrum Noirs this time. Quite a simple card really but quite effective don't you think ideal for either male of female gardeners.
Thanks for visiting my blog l look forward to reading your comments.

Here's today post.......
For this card l chose a 6 x 6 white base card and among my stash l found two pieces of toning pink card, ran one through and embossing folder and then using one of my dies cut the doily for the main topper to be placed on. The stamped image is a stamp l used from one of my many magazines, coloured using dark pink, and then placed three small flowers within the basket. I then draped the bunting across the top and finished off with the message tag.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have enjoyed, please leave me your comments.

This is one of my designs made for my friends blog challenge....
The main card is an A5 portrait white card and the main topper has been put through an embossing folder, then l cut out the oval to make the aperture for me to be able to place the frame of flowers over. Stamped the message and placed behind the aperture. I stamped two of the frames so as to be able to decoupage the flowers once coloured with my Chameleon pens. I chose to wrap the golden yellow ribbon around the lower edge and finished off with some toning card candy.
I do hope you have enjoyed visiting my blog, look forward to reading your comments...Thank You.

This card is yet another different shape.....
I found a few of these trifold cards in my stash so l set out to see what l could make, and here is one that l decided to make. I punched the top edges using one of my border punches, and then placed the pale lilac panels on, two contrast ones, l on the inside the other on the outside. I then placed the swirls etc, Tattered Lace, and the butterflies were Tonic. Nice quick and easy, suitable for any occasion.
