I have been making some very simple cards lately to give to a friend to sell. These really are very simple the backing paper is done in word and printed out and then the image is mounted on foam pads. The top card the image and borders are printed in word and the happy birthday has been cut on the cricut. Images and backing papers are from Cuddly Buddly, pc crafter and Aimee Asher.

Blog candy

Oh wow, you have to go and see the blog candy that Debbie has up for grabs. She is celebrating her first blogoversary. Go to Passion for Crafts and have a look.
I was dying to try out my new messy rabbit cd and couldn't decide what to make until I saw this image. My friend is 40 and we will be partying tonight, he is a big fisherman so thought this image would be ideal for him. The backing papers are from the cd too.

I have made quite a few cards lately but just haven't got around to blogging them. I did this one today as a request. I have made several cards for the recipient before and normally I do something with butterflies as she loves them so much. This time however, I decided to have a change so I do hope she likes it. The image is from charmed cards & crafts and coloured with promarkers the backing paper is from my stash as is the flower, gem and ribbon while the image was done on the puter and cut with nesties.

Another one not to be missed is over on Bev's blog. Her blog anniversary is coming up and she has a great giveaway, get yourself over and have a look.

This is the "card" I made for my friends wedding last weekend, I just wanted to try something different for a change. The template was purchased at Card Carousel and printed out on white card. I added lace and flowers for decoration. Each tier is a box and you are supposed to be able to open each box and put something inside, however, having used copious amounts of silicone to get the flowers to stick that really isn't going to happen. The box though was a nightmare to make, I think it is far to flimsy and by the time I had finished the acetate was filthy.....lol. If I make another one I will have to look at ways of redesigning the box I think. Anyway my friend was pleased with it so that's all that counts. Idid personalise the lid with their names aswell.

Here's a lovely card I made for my stepfather who likes monkeys. The image is CC designs and was coloured with promarkers and cut with a nestie. The papers and elements on the card are from shabby princess. I decided to have a little play around with the digi papers and elements for this card on the puter, so all I actually had to do once I printed the paper off was stick on the image.....sorted.

Made another card for a request. Image and backing paper are from Graphic Garden, I haven't used these images for ages. I did the greeting on the puter and mounted onto a nestie added flower, sticky lace and stickles from my stash.
