Hi everyone

I can't believe I have not posted anything since May of this year,  I have been making cards again so I really have no excuse.
So before I end up talking lots of nonsense, I am just going to start posting some of the cards that I have made over the past while.
My photographic skills are still not up to much, but I will try and sort this.

This is a Craftsuprint design, which I really enjoyed making.  The cup number is 465236_359

New cards

Another few cards that I have made over the past few days, I hope that you enjoy them.  All comments will be gratefully received.


7 x 7 card, layered with one piece of card which was embossed with hearts.  I used the Banner Parade die from Memory Box.  I cut out the flag banner and then I cut out the letters from Die-Versions 'A Hint of Lime' font.  I then attached the swirls die underneath the banners and attached a couple of stars and hearts.
I then finished off the card with pink, blue and lemon ribbon and pearls at each of the corners.

This is the very first Sympathy card that I have done, it was someone who asked me to 'make her a few, as she didn't know when she would need one', each to their own I suppose.
I layered the card with black and cream card, I used Noble Dies - Double Pierced Rectangles - Set B, by Sue Wilson to create the cream and black frames.  I used the 6th and 7th smallest die and the insert from the 5th smallest die so that I could put the flower on the top.  
The flower was from Die-namics (My Favourite Things)

The Easter Cards were made using a variety of different dies Happy Easter Egg by Memory Box, I also used the decorative stand from the Faberge Eggs.  I only attached a piece of ribbon and 2 flowers at the side of the card.

Happy Easter die, decorative stand a couple of roses and some pearls.

I just used a square die that I had in my box, don't know what it is called (i'm sorry), Happy Easter words and two flourishes in the corners along with some pearls.

Happy Easter die, with embossed card, pearls, butterfly, ribbon and roses.

Faberge egg and decorative stand, blue ribbon, flourish in corner, Happy Easter die used and 2 flowers.

Anya Faberge egg used decorative stand, flourish in top corner, butterfly, flowers, pearls and Happy Easter die.

I have a few other cards, which I will try and post later on today.  

I hope that you enjoy my cards.

New cards

Hiya everyone

Here are a few more cards that I have only recently made, I do hope that you like them.

7 x7 white card.  I die cut Creative Expenssions Craft Dies by Sue Wilson - Elephant, Giraffe and Lion and some of the Signature Collection dies by Sara Davies - Rattle, Dummy and Bottle.

6 x 6 card, I cut out dies by Sue Wilson - Elephant, Giraffe, Lion and Pitter Patter on the top left hand corner.  

DL card - used dark purple and light purple and cut out dies to decorate the bunting.  The dies used were from Die-Versions - A Hint of Lime font.

This card was created by using the free gift that I got from one of my magazines.  I only used 'Happy Birthday' and 2 of the roses from the die.  The heart shaped die along the bottom was another free gift.

Another 6 x 6 card, another die by Sue Wilson - New Arrival, Stork and Baby.  The Pitter Patter and the Elephant were from Sue Wilson - Stuffed Animals.

I hope you like the other new cards that I have created, hopefully there will be some more in the next few days.

Have a great weekend.

New cards

Hi everyone

I have finally returned after a couple of weeks away, I have been busy making some new cards and making a lot of mistakes as well.  It's so good to be crafting again.
I knew this would happen, so it is just as well I have the patience of a saint.

I hope you like what I have made up until now.

This was a working Candy Machine card that I made for my 2 adopted grandchildren.  I used the Working Candy Machine die from Sue Wilson, once I got over the initial mistakes it was a relatively easy 'card' to put together.  Well worth it for the children.

This was a little card that I made for my son on his birthday.  I cut out the Jungle Friends, coloured them in and attached them to my card with sticky fixers, so that I could make them different levels.
Even though my son was 28, he really appreciated the card as he knows what I am like.

6 x 6 card, embossed with Clouds and a die which I can't remember the name of as I have had it so long.  I used the Chrysanthemum die from Sue Wilson, which is lovely, just a pity I couldn't show it off to its full potential.  Once the card goes into an envelope it squashes the petals down.

6 x 6 card, embossed with Flowers, I die cut a circle from the middle of the card.  I used a die which I had got free from one of my magazines.  It was a complete die with Happy Birthday and the flowers and bird attached.  I separated the flowers and bird from the Happy Birthday so that I was able to put them in different places on the card.

Another 6 x 6 card, I used a border die to cut out the side of the card, I then used pink card to have as the inside of the card.  I cut out three pieces of card, two for the pink and yellow and the other one was used to put the Happy Birthday die onto.  I then embellished it with some flowers at the side.

A 7 x7 card, silver mirri card used, then white card.  I then cut out another 3 pieces of card, two for the silver and white and another one to put the Happy Birthday die onto.  I also used the Chrysanthemum die again.  

I'm not too good at describing how I  have made my cards, this is something that I am going to have to learn. lol

I hope that you like my first set of cards that I have made and hopefully there will be many more soon.

I can't remember if I had said before, but my Zip Slide is this Sunday at 10.30am, I am sort of looking forward to it, I will just have to try and put the fear of heights behind me.

Thank you for looking.

Hi everyone, I have once again taken up my cardmaking after a few years of not being able to do much.
My skills and creativity are a bit rusty, so I am going to have to keep at it and take advice from everyone.
I have made a few Easter cards to give out to some friends, I only hope they will forgive my mistakes.
Just before I show you my cards, I thought I would let you know that I am doing a Zip Slide at the end of April for MS, as I am feeling a bit better than I was.
I made a few changes in my life with regards to MS, I came off the majority of medication that I was on as it really wasn't doing me any good at all.
So, after being on 26 pills in the morning the same in the afternoon and evening, I now only take 6 in the morning and 4 in the evening.  I still have some big issues, but I tend to deal with them 'mind over matter', so I am now no longer consumed with MS which is great.

So on that note, I will now post my cards.

As you can see, I obviously have to get my camera skills up to speed again, as these pics are not really very good, I can admit to my shortcomings though.

Hopefully, by the next time I post some pics online I will have everything sorted as far as taking a picture is concerned.

I will try and include an explanation of how I made my cards next time.
