Birthday girl

My great neice (makes me sound old) turned 11 at the weekend. Paige's favourite colours are pink and purple. I used lovely lilac, pretty in pink and rose red with pink brads.

Card for Deirdre

Thanks to http://ttrishmyers.blogspot.com for this idea

I made this card recently for a very good friend, Deirdre. Love the "Groovy Guava" cardstock and ribbon but unfortunately this colour has now been retired. I'm sure the card idea would look lovely in many other softer shades. Would love it if we had the "Big Shot" die cutter (as they have in USA) to die cut the "top note" (white bit) but I had to cut it and the flowers out by hand.

Today's Effort!

Just finished designing and making this card commissioned for a lady turning 100! I used rose red and regal rose cardstock, daisy, pearls and hatpin from pretties kit and rose red ink with boho backgrounds stamp. Think she'll like it?

Wedding Card

This is a card I madefor my neighbours who got married recently. The cardstock is bashful blue, elegant eggplant and whisper white. The flower and half-pearls are from the "pretties kit". The tab was made with the round tab punch. The swirls were made using the roller stamp so swirly with bashful blue ink and the words were from the stamp set, fast and fun notes.

Bottle Tag

I made this bottle tag to go with the card.
